Me personally despite the high MP – which I could use for my work – it is not enough to get me to switch back from the Sony mirrorless a7 and a7R cameras. Once you go mirrorless it’s tough to go back!
On February 14, 2014 I took delivery of my newest camera body – the recently released full-frame mirrorless 36.4MP Sony Alpha a7R digital camera.
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.
Right on the heals of Nikon announcing a special savings in the month of September Canon has gotten into the game as well.
Now through September 28th at B&H Photo you can save up to $500 on certain Canon digital camera body and lens bundles such as the EOS 70D, EOS 60D, EOS 7D, and the Rebel T5I, SL1, T3, and T3i cameras.
