Still loving my A7R2.... just finished a surfing trip to Maldives aboard a boat for 10 days... we were parked a fair distance from the surf break and longest lens I had was my FE 4/70-200 G OSS.
While I got some OK shots I could crop into... nothing was close enough.
I borrowed our surf guide's Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 A022 with Canon mount and used it on my Metabones EF-E mount....... even at 600mm there was still a lot of wasted real estate in the pixels, and although I used a monopod to carry the weight, it was very hard to stop even tiniest movements on a rocking boat... but still managed to get some magic for my mates when I wasn't surfing.
Original frame reduced to 10% size, and then crop into 1:1 frame to 1800x1200px.
1/800th sec, f11, auto ISO 800, manual focus trying to lock into the distant area for faster shooting (although automatic focus still worked)
Probably should have stayed at at least 1000th sec.
Very happy I got some useable closer shots.... older blokes can still have a lot of fun!
I'm new to my Sony A7III and for the most part happy, but recently I've noticed after I take a picture and move somewhere to take another, the green focus point has moved and I have to use the joy stick to recenter it. I like to keep it centered for those run and gun type of shots. Any suggestions? Thanks very much!
Raging wild fire in California. The ashes covers large part of sky, and gives a strange hue. Sunset in the distance glows in unusual cherry red. Not a happy day for those who lost their houses 30 miles from where this photo was taken earlier today. Cross my fingers for those brave firefighters.
