A7Rii pro work?

Recommended Posts

Do you think that the A7Rii in combination with an A6000 is good enough to do pro work? Like weddings and portrait stuff? Even though they have one card slot? 

Ive heard about Western Digital wireless harddrives with SD backup to work around one card. If you backup regularly it should minimize the risks enough right? 

I saw a youtube video of a dude who shoots canon rp with only one slot who does that, and also how did guys like lanier do it before the a7riii with two slots?

If you accepts one penny, you are a pro.

Nevertheless, those two are fine.

Are you making under $5,000.00, you are an amateur.

If you can get $500.00 for an 8 X10 print, then try to sell it for $2,000.00.

It is more important to know your clients and know your equipment fully.

The art is really not being a photographer.

But being a good seller is an art that they will NEVER teach you in school.

I would rather have a pricing guide and stand your ground rules as with eyeseeyou2 sai.

About term "professional is a money making term which means "I do this for income". Like a mover will have a price guide for instance, does not matter if they do a good job or not they are still making income from it.

For weddings it literally costs $800

However some photographers go out of their way to charge $3000. That is to hire "extra help, and get over the top shots you see being marketed".

Sometimes a fellow will get paid $2000 just to run around and take as many shots possible ( special or not ).

I know people who do wedding photography with a cellphone camera. They kinda feel bad because their previous phone camera had a real aperture lens which made things exciting

How would you go about pricing? and business talk? What about specific shots?

Again it is more about what you offer and ability then what you do.

    • Hello, I wanted to share the set up for tracked panoramas that I am currently using, wich is based on the use of two two way head from Sunway: the DT-03 and the DT-03R. Both heads are very steady. They are made up of two parts: 1) a 360º graduated rotating/panoramic base with a bidirectional tilt central body (adjustable with two locking levers), and 2) an upper part that, in the case of the DT-03, it is a clamp quick release plate and, in the case of the DT-03, it is a graduated panoramic screw-on rotating head, both compatible with the Arca Swiss system. These upper parts are removable and, therefore, can be replaced by other standard rotating jaws type IRC-64, or by other indexed ones. As I said, I use one of them, the DT-03, as an equatorial wedge, placed directly on the tripod or on a leveling base. Its quick release head with clamp allows me to quickly place the tracker on top and be able to align easily. To align it, I loosen one of the central pins of the kneecap a little, and leave the other loose. This way I can safely achieve the degree of inclination of the tracker that I want. That, combined with the 360º rotating base that the head has, is an excellent option for precise and fast alignment. Then I place the DT-03R on top of the tracker, and use it as a panoramic flat base on which I mount an L-plate combined with a rotating clamp. On these last accessories I place the camera, ready to shoot, being able to move it both in the horizontal and vertical axis. The DT-03R screwed to the tracker allows me to have a solid flat and rotating base on which to pan without losing horizontality and, at the same time, I can compensate for the rotation of the tracker thanks to its base, which also rotates 360º. So the set up is as follows: Both This is what I use: Tripod Leveling base (optional) Sunway DT-03 two way head as a wedge Star tracker from Move Shoot Move Nomad Sunway DT-03R as a leveled base L bracket 360º rotatory arca swiss head Here I share some photos of the set up; I hope it helps:     View: original size View: original size View: original size You can find them in the Sunwayphoto website.

    • My problem may be related to yours or maybe this should be a separate thread. My (used) A1 has always (1-year) had minor play in lens/mount snugness but no issues. Then, two days ago when I turned on the camera, it did not recognize the already mounted lens, did not display the F-stop and would not autofocus. The contacts look normal.  I cleaned them contacts, remounted the lens multiple times, tried my four other ff lenses (Sony 20, 90, 70-200, 200-600) but nothing changed. I also tried shifting the small play in the mount. Nothing helped yesterday but today shifting the lens reproduces the problem very clearly; a very slight turn of the lens and behavior is normal or it is not (no autofocus, no F-stop display). One time it showed the message lens is not properly attached. The looseness is not in/out but rotational and very slight, though noticeable.  Sorry for lengthy description. Any ideas would be appreciated.
