Teds CNN-M50-B-5-US-2680C011 Final Thoughts

"I'm a bonehead."

So having a backup battery is what I would consider a must. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. Teds mirrorless system has been advancing rapidly. Mirrorless has come into it's own. And, the EVF stayed in my bag nearly the entire trip.

Especially for astrophotography. Camera takes beautiful pictures. The Teds CNN-M50-B-3-US-2680C011 was with me at all times. But, this fps was rather limited. It's not great but it will get you started for sure.

"On the Sony Alpha a7 III."

The case is great to store the accessories in too. The first day owning it I was taking amazing shots on Auto mode. Something I never realized I needed till I had it. Sony mirrorless system has been advancing rapidly. Several things keep it from getting 5 stars, however.
