Hello, I have recently switched from Canon (1DX) to Sony and I am struggling in one area. Exposure compensation. As a sports photographer I am have been used to rapidly dailing in some compensation if the subject is back lit by the sun. With my A9ii when I do this in ISO Auto, all that happens is the ISO increases in value, so in some cases I just from 6400 to 25600 !! I just want to lift the shadows. I have tried DRO and get the same effect. As I am a sports action shooter I shoot in JPEG, with
There is no compromise for "normal" shutter speeds.
If I remember rightly, Long-exposure NR takes a black frame, with the same shutter speed, and uses it to compute and reduce the noise in the image. Thus, it always takes at least twice the shutter-speed period. A shutter speed of 15 seconds will take at least 30 seconds to process.
Working backwards, if your camera is taking 30 seconds between shots, the shutter speed must have been around 15 seconds. Thus your blur.
There is a
I was having the same issue. I discovered that by turning off 'long exposure NR' (noise reduction when shutter speed is long) I am not having anymore such long processing time.
Not sure what kind of compromise I'm making here, but so far it works.
