A7R3 low light photos


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any raw low light portraits shot on a A7R3 they would like to share? I'm still weighing out my options between the A73 and the R3 and would like to see if the R3 handles well enough in low light environment for portraits.

I'm on the verge of purchasing an A7R3 soon and I was wondering if anyone have any low light photos in Raw that they would like to share with me. I'm currently going back and forth between the A73 and the R3. I want the higher MP because I do work in Photoshop but I hear the A73 is significantly better for their low light performance. I'm wondering if I should sacrifice the extra MP for the low light capability. In a perfect world, I would like the high MP and good low light performance since I like to take outdoor portraits of people in the city with a shallow depth of field, and I'm just wondering how the R3 will perform.

I know these photos are edited, but a few examples of what I want to get out of the low light performance.

Generally speaking, the lower the MP the better low-light performance. But even with a 60MP camera I think you can get great results in low light, provided that you use an excellent lens. The new 50mm f1.2 that Sony will release shortly or other good quality 1.2 or 1.4 lens should give incredible results on the a7R4.

My advice would be to visit your local camera store and rent one for a weekend with a 1.2/1.4 lens and try it out. They are expensive, so a test-drive would be beneficial.

Thank you! I'll look more into faster lenses.
