Thoughts on DxO PhotoLab vs. Lightroom. I currently have LR6 and don’t want the monthly cost to upgrade my LR, can anyone tell me their thoughts or opinions on DxO PhotoLab? Current users that have switched from LR-is it basically the same/different? What do you like/dislike?
I recently received a Sony 24-104 f4 lens and I love it. This lens is so versatile. I can see this as my main travel lens. On most trips I will still take the Sony 16-35 f2.8 GM for landscapes. Smaller international airlines have a 8KG carry on luggage limit. That means a maximum of three lenses so selection is very important.
Don't just take my word for it. The reviews for this lens are really outstanding. Some are even saying go with this lens over the 24-70 f2.8 GM. Much cheaper and lighter.
A question haunting me: The Sony A7 Mk II offers 24mb resolution. I shoots birds and butterflies; even with a 400mm lens, very often I end up cropping the FF image to APS-C size or smaller; often I shoot in APS-C mode for 'perceived reach' that gets me a 10mb image file. How would that compare with using say the APS-C size Canon 80D (also 24mb)? Here I would have a non cropped 24mb file as compared with a similar Sony A7 cropped image which would be a 10mb file. Which would offer better image quality for making prints of size 20x30 inches?
Not a lot of difference between the R3 and R4 besides the added MP and the resulting detail. An ISO range of a camera doesn't show how noisy its sensor is. There is a big difference in the last 6 years from the R1 to the R4. Sony increased the resolution while simultaneously decreasing the noise at high ISO. This was once thought of as a trade off. I want that new tech in the APS-C sensor.
I always shoot in raw but looking at the a6000 menu there is an option when shooting JPEGs to do
Hope soon to move over to Sony from Canon at the moment I use CF cards along side SD cards in the 7D MK II but what would/do you use in your Sony A9? Obviously you need a big card to take what I assume would be a lot more images at 20 FPS RAW (if you hold the shutter down) I don't go over 64GB on a card as I would rather change that card for a new just in case anything larger has a problem and you loose everything (never had a card fail but you never no) I also take it that you would need the UH
ISO-range of A7Riii and A7Riv are the same (100 - 32000), as is the dynamic range:
Even though I like the absolute sharpness and detail when I pixel-peep my photo's, it hardly serves a practical purpose. It's like the whole 4k - 6k - 8k discussion in video-world. Yes you'll see the difference if you're sitting at half a meter from your 65" TV, but who does that except the guy who just bought a new TV?
