Here’s a collection of images shot with the Sony a7R IV full-frame mirrorless camera under different lighting conditions and with different settings to give a sense of how it performs in real-world shooting.
I’ve been out shooting with the brand-new Sony a7R IV, the full-frame flagship model in Sony’s mirrorless camera range. Here are some side-by-side examples taken through the ISO range from ISO 50 to ISO 102400.
The cameras in Sony’s Alpha range are well-known for their superb sensors. I’ve been shooting with the latest model, the Sony a7 III, at high ISOs to find out how well it performs in real-world shooting in low-light conditions at high ISOs. Here are the results and some examples.
Some cameras say they have a silent shutter, but when you go to use it they turn out to just have a very quiet shutter. I’ve been pleasantly surprised that the one on the Sony a7III really is silent. Here’s how to set it up.
The Sony a7r iii has a well-earned reputation for boasting an extraordinarily good sensor, and it has an ISO range from 50 up through 102400. I shot some real-world examples through the ISO range to see how the ISO settings compare side by side.
By default, the Sony a7r iii doesn’t automatically switch to memory card slot 2 when the card in slot 1 is full. So if you’re getting an error message that there’s no space on the memory card and it’s not automatically switching to the card in slot 2, here’s how to change that.
Many cameras come with an AC battery charger. But charging from a USB power source can be far more convenient when you’re traveling. The good news is that there are USB chargers out there for the batteries used in common camera models, even if you have to hunt a little to find them.
One of my few complaints about the Panasonic Lumix GF1 is that it doesn’t have a built-in intervalometer to take time lapse shots. But for about $50-$70 you can get a third party timer cable release that does the job quite nicely.
