Sony Alpha a7 III First Impressions

"Filters work well."

The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera. But I like to see a Sony GM lenses. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. Still getting used to the buttons. In August I sold my last DSLR and moved to the Sony Alpha a7 III.

  • NEWLY DEVELOPED SENSOR, EVOLVED IMAGE PROCESSOR: The latest technology achieves stunning processing speed A new version of the 24.2-megapixel* Exmor R CMOS sensor, now featuring a back-illuminated structure, is combined with the latest BIONZ X image processing engine and front-end LSI, and this combination achieves a data readout speed that is two times faster and data processing capability that is 1.8 times higher.
  • REDUCING NOISE IN HIGH-RESOLUTION IMAGES: Standard ISO range is extended to ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 50-204800 for stills), while Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction technologies maintain image details and cut noise.

Every movement is so smooth, the slow motion really impressive. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. It is easy to use and the picture quality is out awesome. The second problem is the focusing controls. With its kit lens, there are several focusing aids.

"Plenty of features."

The case was good, and the flash drives are good. So, when Sony came, I purchased it immediately. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. Simply because they just use the kit lenses the cameras come with. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference.
