The days are long, the sun is strong, and there is always work to be done. Your work defines you and just by looking you can tell Old Betsy here has done her share of hard work over the years. Yet there is still more to be done…

This is an ongoing report that I started on February 15, 2014 following my purchase of the new full-frame mirrorless 36.4MP Sony Alpha a7R digital camera.

The other evening I brought my Sony a7R camera to a youth soccer game to see how the camera responds to sports action photography.
It has been a number of years since I photographed any sports action. Being a former photojournalist for 17 years I had the opportunity to photograph countless sporting events from youth to professional sports and everything in between. Being a number of years removed from those days, the rust was evident the other night while shooting as my timing was terrible.

I purchased this camera expecting it to be a replacement to my old Canon 5DII digital SLR camera body. As a fine art photographer who specializes in primarily landscape photography printed large (currently up to 10 feet) resolution and image quality are among my top requirements for a camera.
I passed on the Canon 5DIII when it was released a few years back, finding it not too much more impressive spec-wise than the 5DII. Not wanting to wait any longer for Canon to release an update to the 5DIII I decided to jump ship to Sony, who seems to be innovating at a breakneck speed these days.
What follows is a collection of field reports as I learn how to use this camera and incorporate it into my fine art photography.
