  • Into Camera's?

    Are you into camera's at all? Full Frame, Mirrorless, Action, VLOG, etc...

    The new Sony A9 III looks utterly fantastic. I've not been into DSLR type cameras for over a decade now so can't comment too much. The 'Global Shutter' looks amazing.

    Anyhoo, I use a Sony EV-1, Insta360 X2 and just picked up..... DJI Osmo Pocket 3!! Truly excited to get my mitts on it.

    Hi Jeff. It's been a while!

    I have a Sony A9 that I use for sports and wildlife and a Sony A7R3 that I use for landscapes, portraits, and concert and theater photography. I also have a Sony A6000 that I use occasionally as a third body for sports or as a lightweight walkaround camera. I have a variety of lens, including the Tamron 17-28, Tamron 28-75, Tamron 70-180, Sony 55 f/1.8 and Sony 200-600.

    The Sony A1 is probably the ideal camera for me, because it can do all of the things in a single body that I currently use two different bodies for. That said, I've been eagerly awaiting the A9 III announcement for a while. I was hoping that it would have something akin to the A1 focusing system with a 36ish megapixel sensor and come in a price point somewhere closer to $4500. If it had, then I probably would have pre-ordered one immediately. I had mixed feelings when I saw that it's actually a 24.6 megapixel sensor but with a global shutter and priced at $6,000. On one hand, I would really have liked an increase in resolution for wildlife photos, where I often have to crop heavily and to a lesser extent for soccer photos, where I occasionally have to crop in a bit. But on the other hand, the global shutter is a huge step forward.

    I do hope to upgrade to either the A1 or A9 III at some point probably sooner rather than later. Right now, I'm leaning towards a used A1.

        Maaaaaaaybe a bit too much. I started taking my photography "seriously" around 2009 and bought a Nikon D200 ("Betty" ~ don't judge) at the suggestion of Douglas Bain, an OG of MR. About 20,000 crappy shots and a few keepers later, I have a couple of dozen cameras - 35mm, 120, point-n-shoot digital, a D780, a Leica Q2, and my youngest: a Nikon Zf. I enjoy taking pics of the grandkids and rural/small town landscapes, mostly.Click image for larger version
