  1. Nice, digital zoom is 2x over clearview but to me the images look the same. It just seems going beyond 2x is when it starts to look worse but having clearview instead of just saying Digital Zoom with 2x or 4x makes it seem to be better on the mental side but in actuality it's just preventing you from overextending into an area that will make it look worse such as on video. You want to limit it to the highest zoom quality available. Also, it could look better on the zoom than the crop because the camera did a better job as focusing than when it's further away. It could think it's spot on
  2. if you move it up 35mm does it make your minimum focus closer by 35mm or depending on the distance of someone it goes up w/ a multiplier so 35mm could be like 50mm on some and 70mm on another? Also, does the maximum focus scale the same 1:1 or is it different too depending on the distances of somethings too?
  3. How do you tell the EV in BULB mode? Sony A7R4 only goes to 30", any beyond that and you don't know what the EV is going to look like unless of course you do a shot w/ a timer beyond that which would eat tons of time.
  4. So adding a 2x TC w/ ETs doesn't change the minimum focus distance?
  5. The flash doing macro isn't good as it gets blocked by the camera lens. A ring light for macro is great I've heard, that or lights to the side of the lens, do you have any experience w/ it? Right now I'm holding a bright light over the macro to get some light or far enough to get the light on the subject which works. I'm not too crazy w/ macro tbh but I think it's due to the lack of using proper lighting.
  6. It's actually the jpgs on the folder. If you don't shoot at the proper exposure it will be considered a blownout highlight in the camera!
  7. I have both an AdobeRGB jpg and an sRGB jpg if you want those too.
  8. yeah, that's what I was saying before. Probably need to AEB
  9. Believe it or not, the colors are a lot deeper in blue, like Way deeper in blue and bright. The red looks like that in real-life though but maybe a bit deeper. How far can you go on the color deepneess? Is Sonys color science not so good which is why it can't go deep?

  11. yeah but if you have a 90mm Macro G and go 2.0x which would make it 180mm, wouldn't that be more insane? It's not like you can go super mega closer even w/ a Macro lens. It caps out at the minimum too when you want to go more.
  12. Because the 2.0x TC makes it stick out towards the lens, if it isn't deep like the 200-600mm or 70-200mm or 100-400mm you cannot put it but if you use an Extension Tube, wouldn't that clearance exist for you to use the 2.0x TC??
  13. Try taking some backlit super bright lights w/ deep color and see what happens.
  14. I was trying every combination possible to get the red and blues out but I think I had to go insanely deeper on the EV.
  15. The one w/ the more details is from the Note20, unedited. The A7R4 one is unedited just cropped. Sigma 50mm f/1.4 on the photos from the PetSmart and this. I took the Note20 images in Night mode at 10x zoom. See how the orange basketball is washed out. I need this fixed.
  16. I know but the lettering was so lit and deep in color that no doubt it would make the A7R4 not take it as intended?
  17. DRO was set to Auto but it doesn't matter if you are on RAW. The metering mode doesn't matter much as I was setting EV myself. How do you bring the colors to a solid deep red and solid deep blue? Should've I gone way deeper on negative EV and did like an AEB as the blue and red were backlit? I wasn't shooting entirely on full manual. It was Aperture priority w/ ISO to Auto.
  18. Ok, the one with the Smart looking white is A7R4. I've tried JPG AdobeRGB and sRGB, same results. I've tried many color presets and changing WB, same results. I've tried changing the contrast and such, same results. I've tried -3 EV and 0 EV, same results. In real-life, the red of Pet and blue of Smart is SO DEEP and nice I wanted to capture it. On the Note20 Ultra, the colors are so much better but on the A7R4, it's not at all. In real-life, the colors are far far deeper than the Note20. How do I bring the colors out? I want ultra deep vibrant blue and red. Can someone please help
  19. I have an A7R4 with 200-600mm. I have a 2.0x TC too and the red dot sight. It's frustrating to get great bird shots. Some can do BIF w/ a 600 GM and a 2.0x TC on an A7R4. I've seen it and it's great. I've tried all kinds of modes but it's difficult. You would want an A9 or A9 II to do BIF properly imo. I don't like most of my shots coming out bad and tracking birds that fly like 500mph in the air makes it hard. You also have to take into consideration the angle of the light hitting the bird. If you are shooting up to the bird and the side you are shooting is dark, the details would be
  20. Why you don't just take a shot when the moon is full w/ no clouds? Imo taking a picture of the moon is a waste of time.
  21. If the bird isn't moving.. A7R4 is the ultimate quality for Sony cameras at the moment. Some people had good luck shooting things in flight and even a flying dragonfly but I haven't. I have a 200-600mm 2x TC too with Olympus EE-1 but haven't had luck w/ good bird shots in flight. I didn't really get the setup for only that reason though. I like to see things from very far away. Imo, having a 100-400 GM and a 200-600 G with 2x TC on an A6400 is pretty crazy to Not have at least an A73, A7R3, A9 1/2, or an A7R4.
  22. APS-C AF A7R4 200-600 focus dead-on 100% vs non-APS-C does not non-APS-C shows the images not as sharp because it's not focused properly like APS-C. Can there be a fix so the computer knows to use APS-C in the background for sharper images?? I've done these test so many times w/ different focus settings. APS-C always has the sharpest reflection for some reason. I've ran the tests a few hours ago too multiple times and it comes out the Same. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1_38QBppmGCGPYacXGv-8VPbjvCm3vnQB?usp=sharing I've even tried a focus with MF set and they look same j
