Ok here goes,
My kit isn’t great although I’m not a professional either.
Camera - A7
Lens - 55mm prime and 24-105mm G also the paper weight 28-70mm that ships with A7 bundle.
The plan is to pick up a A7iii and a 100-400mm and add it to my pack. - I hate changing lens’s I’m a dust magnet.
Not interested in video overly. Drone is pretty good with that I guess.
Im heading away to the far reaches of North Western Australia and think that my current setup will be too short and not really keen on getting up close and personal.
Questions I have are.
1. What should I buy first A7iii or 100-400mm
2. Should I ditch the A7 or leave it as redundancy/spare with the 55mm mounted semi permanently as it gives a great pic.
3. Is my lens 24-105mm a waste on the older A7
4. Is the A7iii my answer?
5. What are the cons with what I have and will there be a noticeable difference with the A7iii?
Look forward to your help
I'm curious about your experience regarding bluetooth connectivity on the Sony A7 III.
The reason why I'm asking is that when I lent a Fujifilm X-T3 it would always instantly connect to my phone and start to geotag my photos. I don't think the app was running in the foreground even.
But with my A7 III I need to start the app, sometime force-quit it, turn on the camera and start the app again. The sequence is very important because if I open the app before I turn on my camera it won't work. This is very annoying because I like to geo-tag my photos all the time, but this is such a hassle that I don't.
I would like it to work as fluent as fujis system.
I've deleted and reinstalled the app
I've removed the connection between my phone and Sony A7III and reconnected
I've reset the connection on my camera
Phone: iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 7
Camera: Sony A7III
What is your experience? Should I get my camera serviced?
Is anyone aware of a way to give the picture profiles (pp1, pp2, etc) custom names?
I have spent the lst 2 weeks getting to know this camera and the customization is really amazing, but this one things seems to elude me.. With all the customization available, I'd be very surprised if they chose to leave this out.
To be clear, I'd love to give PP1 a custom name of, say, "GeneralUseCine4" or "LowLight SLOG" etc..
Thanks in advanced guys. Ryan
