    My god what is this beast?

    |
    Posted .

    I shot Nikon for 8 years... 8 YEARS! from d3200 to d7100, to d750 all the way up the d810... Every upgrade gave me something slightly better but overall it was still really about the same camera. Better ISO, more megapixels, and so on, But the way I shot never really changed. I could produce amazing results on either one of the nikons without ever really feeling like the camera was any better. The auto focus, no matter how much hype there was with every upgrade, frankly still felt like I still had to do all the work. Tracking, framing, focus recompose, hold the camera steady/"properly", or get a OS lens, shaky hands? sorry shoot higher shutter speeds. ALL on me as if Auto focus was somehow a required skill for photographers... But this...this is a whole new world. would you ever shoot sports with say...a 85mm prime on nikon or canon? probably not. But on the R3, sony says "here shoot what you want, how you want, when you want, and hey here's 42 megapixles at 10fps for the blank of it, oh and only $3200" WHAT?! To get that kind of performance on nikon or canon you would have to spend $6000 dollars, and you STILL dont get a live image preview, you still dont get a true silent shutter, and you STILL dont get a fully customizable button layout. AND I MEAN FULLY custom. Like i can set individual buttons to focus areas with different shutter, iso , and aperture combos. YEAH. Sony litterally said "DO WHAT EVER YOU WANT WITH THIS" its insane. Oh yeah and 5 axis image stabilization makes it so irrelevant stuff like camera holding etiquette can jump off a bridge. Ive shot portraits one handed with the camera parrallel to my body, WHILE holding the camera BY THE LENS! DO WHAT YOU WANT! Best camera on the market for sure.

    Great for when you get composition wrong

    |
    Posted .

    Composition can make or break a great photo. With the A7R3, if you get the composition wrong, the ability to crop maintaining incredible detail is amazing to get that just right composition. The eye auto focus is amazingly fast and the 10 fps shooting is incredible. I recommend getting the UHS-II card for this camera. Keep in mind that only one slot is UHS-II and the other UHS-I. It would have been nice to have both at UHS-II. It would have been nice to have the Sony UHS-II reader as a companion to this camera included instead of separate purchase but that has nothing to do with the camera. As far as the camera, the battery life is nearly all day for the hobbyist but I recommend carry of a second battery. With the prior generation, I had to carry 4 batteries. This is a huge plus on great battery life. I like the dual slots. A pro camera to never miss a shot as I have two SD cards in the camera and the 2nd SD Card always serves as a backup to the 1st. With the great ISO and 5-axis stabilization, I can finally take evening shots without a tripod and really capture the moment.

    Fantastic high resolution camera

    Simply put, this is a fantastic high resolution camera capable of the very highest results possible with proper techniques. As a lifelong 30+ year Nikon user, I find it a bit finicky but that’s to be expected between systems. Using an a7ii and a7Riii. Practice makes perfect!

    So far, this is a GREAT CAMERA. I have much to learn but , being a long term Sony camera user, I am finding it relatively easy. It is just so much lighter to carry and the A mount to E mount converter is letting me use my array of lenses. I am very happy that I purchased this camera and recommend it for professional work. The 42 megapixel sensor is great.

    Purchased this camera at the end of May. Such an epic camera! Love the colors it produces and the mega-pixels on this camera is crazy high. A small learning curve as I am switching from another brand but fairly easy to learn if you have some prior knowledge about photography. Highly recommend!

    It is a very good camera, I would recommend it to anybody that knows about photography as a professional. It has an extensive menú option which sometimes can be very hard to understand. Also, you must buy a very good SDcard just because otherwise can be very slow. Color quality is exceptional!!

    Nice camera, though I think a bit pricey for its age. I really wanted to trade this in to get a open box A7RIV but the %15 restocking fee is really stupid and will be my last camera purchase from bestbuy.

    Got this because of the small form factor and decreased weight. Currently using it for bird photography paired with a Sony 200-600mm. The high megapixel was chosen over the A7III to get a tighter crop.

    A delightful camera with resolution for days.

    Posted .

    I had been shooting with the A7ii for a while and wanted to step up my kit considerably. I wanted to shoot low light and astro landscapes and pulled the trigger on the A7iii. I am very happy that I did. The Increased resolution borders that of a Medium Format rig. I have since also purchased the A7iii and with these two cameras in my kit, I feel prepared for anything.

    Got this camera open-box it claimed on the website to be in “Excellent condition” yeah right! Got the camera with no sensor cover. The image sensor was open and exposed to all the elements. Needless to say the sensor is completely dirty and even has a finger print on it. Not impressed Best Buy. Do better please!

    Priced perfect to transition from DSLR to mirrorless camera body. Paired with Sony VG-C3EM Vertical Battery Grip, weighs what it should for balanced weight using pro-level glass to capture images. Whether native Sony glass or using an adapter like Sigma MC-11 as the case is for my use of Canon glass, the small size of the camera body is too small for average to large hands if used by itself. Menu navigation learning curve is best managed with online videos/in-person tutorials vs relying on manual. Resolution quality delivers beyond expectations for images of people, products and places. LCD and viewfinder makes composition effortless and ideal when shooting tethered from camera to computer. Great camera for beginners to pro.

    This has been my dream camera for almost 2 years. I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy it. The autofocus feature that finds faces... seriously in and of itself makes the camera worth the purchase. It does extremely well in low light. Its relatively easy to use. The video quality is super, as well. Also, I love that this camera has some weight to it for being so small. I am very happy with this purchase.

    This camera is amazing. No complaints and the great part about buying it from Best Buy was all the price fixes I’ve been able to get since it has dropped. Got it in September, upgraded from the a6600 and what an upgrade it is. If you love the Sony family, you’ll enjoy this even more! Sony makes a solid camera with this. I mainly use it for photography. Here’s some of the shots I took on it.
