>THINKS THE A7 SERIES ARE PROFESSIONAL TIER CAMERAS
Lol holy shit this is an obvious troll thread but you actually think those plastic toys are equivalent to professional Canon and Nikon DSLRs
>my barbie camera plastic toy build quality >my notoriously bad sony customer service >my no professional services or onsite report >my overheating >my shutter jamming >my no weather sealing >my terrible ergonomics >my camera lag >my small body and fuckhuge lenses >my fucking shithouse battery life >my shithouse native lens selection >my shithouse autofocus performance >my no professional flash system
>>2759139 They also expected to waste huge amounts of film doing it. That's why bulk film backs and fast power winders existed. Because prefocussing my help in motor racing where you can predict where the car is going to go. Not so helpful in sports such as basketball, soccer or rugby
>EVF is infinitely better at previewing exposure and white balance.
for what, faggot?
Fucking street snapshits??
>What are strobes >why cant me lelvf preview any photos with flash >why is my battery life so fucking shit? >where the fuck are my 9001 spare batteries? >why is my white balance off >why didnt my evf preview correct white balance before I took the photo >why am I being cucked by sony >why am I sacrificing all the fucking battery life of my fucking tiny battery to only get a correct preview of exposure after I take the shot in which case it is better to look at the fucking LCD anyway
Oh wait I just realised
>Sony >Flash system
My aplogies, I forgot we were cmparing a toy only suitable for snapshits to professional cameras.
Name one application when an EVF is fucking better than an OVF to the point where its worth sacrificing more than 75% of your battery life lol
>>2759451 Your post is so much incorrect and strange information I don't even really know where to start...
>What are strobes What? 1) You don't get any sort of exposure preview at all with OVF, so why would it be WORSE to have, worst case scenario, the EXACT SAME level of info? Also, 2) If you're shooting serious strobes, you have modeling lights.
>Why can't my lelvf preview any photos with flash See above ^^
>Why is my battery life so shit Because the cameras are small. Do you only have one battery for your DSLR?
>Where the fuck are my 9001 spare batteries I have two. They stay in my camera bag, with my lenses, cleaning cloth, tripod heads, charger, and all the other shit I'm already bringing with me because I'm a photographer, not a GWC.
>Why is my white balance off Good question. What? Also, are we ignoring the well documented issues that Nikon DSLRs have with white balance?
>Why didn't my evf preview correct white balance before I took the photo Another good question. What are you talking about? Mine absolutely does that...
It seems like maybe you just have no idea what you're talking about? Which is fair I guess... but what's with the aggressive ignorance?
>Sony >Flash system Oh, so you're using tiny little hotshoe flashes and rely on TTL for some reason? Sounds like you're getting good results.
Even someone with a MILD interest in SORT OF serious flash work is not using a system that offers TTL, dude. Even Alien Bees are manual with a controller. And guess what - they work with Sony.
>More than 75% of your battery life. Which DSLR are you using in raw that is giving you 1600 photos per battery?
>>2759606 Fuji does have some slower lenses. The 35mm f/1.4 hunts a bit in really low light. I'm sure there are others, but of the lenses I own (23mm, 35mm f/1.4, 35mm f/2, 18-55, 50-140, and 56 f/1.2) all but the 35 f/1.4 focus dead-on accurately, and nearly instantly, in any lighting situation in which I can actually get a usable photo. Fuji AF speed and hunting used to be a big issue, with the XPro1, the X-E1, and the X100, but they've got it down now. Tracking is still not perfect, and I wouldn't rely on it, but single shot stuff is on par with the best now, and isn't even worth bringing up when talking about the newer cameras.
A big issue DSLR shooters have when moving to mirrorless is not knowing how to use the AF system. It behaves a little differently. Having variable sized focus point in general is a new concept, for instance. But once you play with it for a very little while, you learn it, and you can use it without issue.
>>2759770 My f/2 arrived in the mail yesterday and I've already been doing some playing with it. It's dramatically improved. I can assure you, if you are having focusing issues, chances are very very good it's the lens.
>>2759365 >- OVF is significantly better at showing you real life. But Anon, photography is not about copy the reality, it's about make great pictrues that came out of your mind using your camera and your environnement. Exept for photojournalism and packshot, the "more realistic" argument is pointless.
I like Sony if just for the reason they stir up a lot of drama in the forums.
They're holding power over the most significant core technologiy, the most aggressive development of image sensors, which brings about a whole ton of sensor envy, and it's entertaining as fuck to read.
