  1. Have a read of this thread, quite long but it has a lot of good info in it. Basically DRO under exposes the RAW file, this gives more range/detail. https://www.sonyalphaforum.com/topic/9513-outdoor-shooting-is-bright-in-viewfinder-dark-in-actual-raw/

  3. Probably sold out, you might want to search around some of the smaller stores.
  4. Did you check to see if its set to Manual in the memory setting ?
  5. The 55 1.8 is one of the sharpest lenses.
  6. 840mm (200-600 + 1.4TC) ISO100 1/500s a9 Significant crop
  7. ISO 4000, interior through a pane of glass ISO 160, outside through chain link fence (hence weird bokeh) ISO 400, Outside
  8. I just got the shipping notice for my 200-600 👍
  9. It may be that you need to do some post-processing to get the results that you want. It seems every camera interprets colors differently.
  10. Go here to the manual —> https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/3287/32879691M.pdf search for vivid
  11. On my a9, if I select Memory Recall and cycle through the memory slots it shows all the saved settings. I’m assuming that those are the settings that you want.
  12. I’ve been thinking the same thing, I love my a9, but this tiny camera would be great to keep in the car or in a pocket for those spur of the moment times.

  14. Colby Brown has a write up on the 200-600, there is a shot on there taken with the 200-600 + 1.4, looks very good to me. https://www.colbybrownphotography.com/gear-review-sony-200-600-f-5-6-6-3-g-telephoto-lens/
  15. Shooting RAW; For shooting events I typically have the camera mounted on a tripod and operating via a PocketWizard remote (Plus III). I have the camera setup to auto sleep after a minute, a half press on the remote wakes it up. For comparison, I attended an Air Show this past weekend, lots of switching the camera off and on between acts and a lot of re-focus etc. and drained one battery after 2500 shots. I was the using the battery grip this time and one battery is completely empty and the other at 100% after six hours of shooting off and on.
  16. Over 4000 photos on a single battery with the a9. Most on the HI fps. I only use genuine Sony batteries and charger.
  17. B&H now showing the ship date has been pushed out to 9th August (one week delay from the original date).
  18. I’m wishing that I had the 200-600 for this event, hopefully not much longer to wait.
  19. Sony a9, 70-200 f2.8 + 1.4TC More at LiveShots
  20. Are you using the original cable that came with the camera? Some after market cables have issues. Also, don’t use a USB hub, connect the camera directly to the Mac.
  21. Is the lens is fully inserted, keep twisting until you hear the click?
