    Beasties still out and about

    Oh and here's me thinking you enjoyed these creepy crawlies. No doubt, the G9 is a superb camera for this type of work! Hope you are keeping well and shooting loads Mike and I am looking forward to some more of your images.............on Flickr yet?

    Beasties still out and about

    I was at one of our local nature reserves today and despite the windy day (weather not me :biggrin:) There were still some dragonflies and butterflies about so I managed to get some photos with the G9 and amazing Panasonic Leica 100-400mm. This is a great combination for insects etc and for me...

    Thanks Jonathan for yet more valuable and constructive feedback - very much appreciated. I am considering a Hahnel battery as I have used them before with great success.

    Sony A7iii

    Thanks Jonathan, great post and I have another couple to add to your list: 1. You have to update lens (and I suspect camera) firmware via a desktop loader using the USB connector rather like most other via SD card - frustrating! 2. Camera needs to be charged via USB cable as no external battery...

    Sony A7iii

    I have been a member of this forum since Amin started it and have never come across comments / feedback such as those appearing on this post. My post was about a camera that happens to be a full frame rather than a comparison of full frame / Mu43 yet it appears some read it as such and even...

    Sony A7iii

    Thanks Jonathan, I have never really looked at the Voigtlander / Nocton lenses but know they have a very good reputation. Alas, it seems this thread has upset some people on the forum who are complaining about the response level and implying it is a bragging post about Sony - I find that sad as...

    Can anybody tell the difference between 4/3 and FF?

    In fairness, my post was in no way a FF comparison, it was more about sharing the enjoyment of the new camera and what it can do. I still have my 2 x Mu43 cameras and the G9+100-400 is my primary kit for shooting dragonflies etc, nothing else comes close for size, weight and reach. I find it...

    Nice setups there Jonathan. How do you find the AF of the A7iii compared to the A7ii or do you shoot in manual?

    Sony A7iii

    Nice set of images Jim and thank you for sharing them, the 85mm looks like it delivers really nice sharp images (albeit with the eye focus issue on the mesh photo) - great to see f2.5 narrow DOF .

    Congrats Levster, I am envious of your resources and intended 3 lens purchases - my next purchase will be the 85 f1.8 so look forward to seeing your images with the new kit.

    Sony A7iii

    Jim, Can you post some samples from the shoot please so we can better understand the performance. I believe you can assign the button on the 85mm f1.8 lens to eye detect so it will avoid some of the problems you have mentioned. I have mine set to the AF-ON button and it works fine, it also...

    Sony A7iii

    I can only say good things about the A7iii regarding both high ISO - image below of my grandson taken today in our local museum - 63,535 ISO - some noise reduction in LR CC but still usable! The other 2 images were taken on our trip to Brighton, focus locked on and remained locked on...

    Thanks Jonathan and all others who have contributed to this, I do have Nikon 105 macro, 24-120 F4 G lens and the amazing 300mm f4 PF that I use on my DF & D500 but I am wondering if there is a suitable adaptor so that I can use them on the Sony ( cannot afford to invest in a batch of Sony glass...

    Thanks Jim for all this info. I am very interested in a cost effective adaptor to allow me to use my Nikon G lenses with full AF etc on the A7iii so would appreciate any info on that please? I do have the superb Godox AD200 that I currently use with my Nikons for portrait work, I have in turn...

    Sony A7iii

    Nice setup Jim and having owned my A7iii for just over a week I also found the best way to learn more about the camera and how to set it up is to watch some of the videos, Mark Galer was suggested and his videos are superb and easy to follow as well as being really constructive and informative...

    We have just returned from a working trip to London followed by a few days in Brighton for some fresh sea air and chill out time so while my wife was working I was able to shoot with the A7iii and 24-70 f4 Sony Zeiss and I have to say I am very impressed with the camera and as Jonathan said, the...

    Sony have worked hard and improved the colours in the A7iii and I am finding them very good, perhaps just a little cool (shooting in Raw) but very simple to fix.

    Sony A7iii

    You are right Levster and his expression and intense stare made it a must take image. The A7iii combo as per your image above shows that it compares favourably with Mu43 kit and with the new sensor delivers superb IQ so it works for me and in CS the lens correction is automatic and requires...

    Sony A7iii

    Wow, thanks everyone for their feedback and comments and despite the criticism of the lens by Mack (has he tried one as often lens reviews are very subjective based on reviewers standard make of equipment). I am happy with the 24-70 and the cost saving on this lens that is "like new" was around...

    Sony A7iii

    The 24-70 f4 is a genuine Zeiss Tessar lens that was considerably less than the new price and in "As new condition - with all components, pouch and boxed". The lens delivers great IQ and is of a manageable size / weight combo compared to the 24-105 that I also handled and it is considerably...

    I have recently purchased the new Sony A7iii and a "Like new" Sony Zeiss 24-170 f4 lens and this is my first ever Sony ( spent a long time reading reviews, watching videos and talking to Sony shooters that I have met) and my response..........Wow. Only day 4 of ownership and I am still very much...

    Natures way

    Out again yesterday with the G9 and took the 45-175 with me for a walk along the canal towpath and then around the lakes. It was a very overcast day but the combo still delivered some nice images despite the ISO hike. I am finding the G9 is a great camera for my wildlife / nature wanderings as...

    We went to Slimbridge yesterday as my wife had not been there since she was a child. It was fine drizzle en route and overcast but by the time we got there the rain had stopped but it was still overcast, it remained dry and even brightened up a little as the day went on. There were some...

    Confessions of a semiprofessional motorsports photographer

    Thank you Jim for sharing this with us, it is a great insight into the challenges and thought process involved in auto racing and your blog is inspiring. I have recently purchased a Panasonic G9 and love it yet I am still getting used to it (shoot mostly on Nikon's for car/motorcycle racing). I...

    About that new Nikon mirrorless camera...

    I have the D500 and you can tilt the rear screen and use live view that even though not as fast as through the OVF / using a mirrorless camera, does offer the option to capture the image from high / low angles.

    About that new Nikon mirrorless camera...

    Nikon are really going to have to pull a rabbit out of their hat on this one as the mirrorless market is very well populated with capable cameras that have many features not offered by DSLR's. I suspect the camera will upon release immediately be compared to the likes of the Sony A9 / AR111 so...

    Panasonic G9 - no blackout in continuous shooting

    Not used electronic shutter / high speed burst as I see no need for it for what I shoot. I use a D500 as well for BIF / aircraft / car racing shots and even though it can shoot at 10fps I tend to find that 3/4 frames covers what I need. I do use the G9 solely in mechanical shutter and slow...

    Has the Olympus 60mm macro lens been discontinued?

    Bought a JJC lenshood really cheap and it is perfect, it even slides in and out so you can get the lens closer to the subject.

    Has the Olympus 60mm macro lens been discontinued?

    Still listed on the UK Olympus site, just purchased one new recently and it had an Olympus £65 cash back so got it for under £300.00 Now listed on Olympus site at £429.99.

    Show your aircraft photos!

    For the first time I attended Departure Day at RIAT and even though we were all confined to a certain area, it was large enough to accommodate the hundreds of photographers / spectators present and close enough to the flight line / runway to capture reasonable photos of the aircraft leaving.

    Showcase Panasonic 45-175mm f/4-5.6

    Panasonic G9 - no blackout in continuous shooting

    Another good thing about the G9 is the ability to set EVF refresh rate to 120fps and this does help. I have used the G9+100-400mm for both truck/car racing as well as airshow work and tried the "Tracking setting" but have given up on that as it is a nightmare if you lose focus lock trying to...

    Butterflies on a hot day

    I took a walk around one of our local lakes this afternoon and there were a few butterflies out and about so once again the G9+100-400mm allowed me to get some close up photos without disturbing them too much. There were a few that flew off but some that I was able to get close enough to to...

    Best hand holdable 400mm option

    I can only endorse the D500+300mm f4 PF ED lens, it is a super sharp lens that is small & light and a very easy carry lens that does not require use of a tripod or even a monopod.

    Best hand holdable 400mm option

    Josh, Have a look at the Panasonic Leica 100-400mm lens, it is a small easy handhold lens that equates to a 200-800mm on an M43 camera. It has superb built in image stabilisation and if used with a Panasonic camera (such as G9), the lens IS works in conjunction with that in the body giving 6.5...

    Quite a few country walks recently - fresh air, exercise and the joy of photography all combined into one.
