    A quiet day

    Another lovely set. You have an impressive breadth of aesthetic skills. I agree that 12,800 is not a problem on that camera. And indeed it can be a virtue if the scene fits. The fox pics look great and I like the grainy backgrounds behind the smaller birds. Did you buy the 100-400? I thought you got the 70-300 but could be wrong about that.
  2. Isn't that part of the aircraft?
  3. I too want to know ISO and shutter. And when you say windscreen of an airliner, does that mean the window at the front of the thing?

    A trip to the seaside

    As usual, I really enjoy your photos. If I don't comment or "like", it doesn't mean I'm not looking at and enjoying them. Keep 'em coming.

    Sony Zeiss 55mm f1.8

    Hi Lansky, Do not hesitate to get that lens. It makes really nice pictures. If you want to photograph in the rain, use an Olympus Tough.
  6. @tinplater Do you mean the control wheel (13)? ISO can be assigned to that but, iiuc, not to the rear dial (9).
  7. I agree with LiveShots, try ISO Auto. Adapting Jim Kasson's manual exposure strategy Decide on the f-stop you need based on DOF, not the light. Decide on the shutter speed you need based on motion blur, not the light. Then [let the camera] set the ISO...
  8. Will use it at most a few hours a week for amateur photography (I currently use Capture One) and for many hours a day for software dev, web, server admin (lots of shell terms), and office chores such as email. I currently use two 1920x1200 24" panels but I think one high-res 32" would be an improvment. To nicely display the images from my 7RM3 I figure 10-bit per channel and HDR might be interesting features. But Idk display tech well. I'll use Win 10 and expect to buy a new GFX card for it, e.g. a Quadro P400.
  9. I didn't have much luck with that lens either. My first E-mount camera was an NEX-6 on which I used adapted old RF and SLR primes. I bought it thinking it would be nice to have native AF lens. DxOMark's numbers influenced my choice. I didn't use it much. That didn't change when I replaced the camera with an A7. Eventually I gave it away with the A7.
  10. Don't forget that web sites commonly process images, sometimes in rather heavy-handed ways. For example, this site is based on the antique IPB and likely uses PHP's GD extension. And the person who wrote that part of the program was probably not expert in image processing, coding, or in the strengths and weaknesses of GD, and had different priorities from us photogs. These mutilations can compound as material bounces around the web. And browsers also have to process images and different browsers do different things (iiuc, this problem isn't as bad as it was). And everyone's computer screen looks different, some people even have software that radically alters the color based on time of day. So the nastiness we see might not be at all related to shooting in JPEG.
  11. Congrats on the camera. Current promos make it a super value. I don't know anything about Nikon software but perhaps these are what you're looking for ImagingEdge and PlayMemories Home. I don't know of anyone that likes these apps but they are available. I use Capture One and there's a free version of that for Sony, iirc.

    A7III posterization banding

    No, I haven't noticed this in my pictures. EXIF says Software: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic 8.0 (Windows). Try a couple of other converters to confirm. You can download Capture One for Sony and RawDigger to try them out.
  13. Ebay, advanced search, sold listings. Also KEH, B&H used, Adorama used.

    Considering switching from Fuji

    Why not rent some Sony gear and find out for yourself?

    Introduction/Lens buying decision

    Then take just the 55 and make do. You'll still be able to take lots of wonderful pics and it will be nice to have a light, compact unit. Or... get an RX100M6 and leave all that stuff behind.
