My new camera!

Just got the camera the other day, and i must say from just playing with it for a few days it's a absolutely great camera. Filled with great features for both cinematic and still photography. This camera will for sure force Canon and Nikon to up their game.

Key Stats:
Sensor24MP 35mm Fullframe Exmor R CMOS
Battery lifeRated at aprox 660 stills
Iso Range50-204800
Stils per secound10 fps
Film capabilities4K 24 fps 60-100 Mb/s , 1080p 24-120 fps 16-100 Mb/s
Focus points693 points

The first thing i can say about this camera is that it feels great in my hands. An ergonomic build with a deep groove for a tight grip make it an ease to handle. On the back it has a 2.95 inch touch screen which can be tilted out to help you to take photos in awkward positions. To set your focus area you could use the touch screen and easily by taping the spot you want to focus on, or by using the joystick to the right of the screen. If you wish to use the viewfinder it has a 2.6 million dots 1.3 OLED screen, which is a lifesaver if you are out in the sun and want to check if you got all your pictures in focus.

The lense i got with this camera is the 24-70mm f/2.8 FE GM that i will review another time.

This camera will get a lot of use this spring /summer

Recuerda que no es la cámara quien tiene la particular visión creativa, es tu ojo, sensibilidad y capacidad para realizar la mejor fotografía posible. Hace unos años, estuve en un museo donde un fotógrafo Norteámericano, realizaba una exposición con una cámara Diana, de material plástico. Me gustaron tus fotografías @thestig y la cámara también. Un abrazo.

·
·
·

Muchas gracias @billo, muy apreciado!

I have been using sony for a long time. really excellent quality.

·

Thats nice to hear, for me this was the perfect camera option.

·

Thank you! 😀

·
·

No worries. You deserve it! :)

really good piece of tech!
I am planning ti buy a camera too. How did you decide to go for this one specifically? Would you recommend any article to narrow the selection? Whether it is sony or not?

Great pictures by the way! I am starting on photography too. Ive done some drone footage :) check them out when you have time. I am also following you now

·

Hey @danphotography! Sorry for the super late reply, just saw your comment. What got me to buy the a7III was all the great features. Auto focus system from the a9, 1080 120fps slow motion, amazing 4k, dual memorycard slot, very good low light capabilities. And since it is a mirrorless camera you got the electronic viewfinder. This and more got me to get the a7III. This is great value for the money in my mind.

My tips for you is to first decide what features are important for you. Then star to go deep into each camera brand and see what they can deliver. YouTube and google is your best friend to see the camera in use. Then go to a camera store to see how it feels in your hands before you decide.

Thank you! Sweet the more the merrier, steemit seems to have a great photography community. I will check out your drone footage for sure :) Thanks for the follow, gonna follow you back.

very great information ... thanks to share... i like it.

Thank you so much! If you want an all round great camera with amazing features for film and still pictures the Sony A7III got the best of both worlds.

Great images, the only thing I'll say is that the pics of the camera itself are too dark for me to really see it

Buena cámara @thestig, pero mejor tu ojo fotográfico, recordando siempre que la misma, es una extensión del ojo. Me agradaron las imágenes expuestas a través de tu nuevo juguete. Mil felicitaciones y te estaré siguiendo con mucha atención.

does any buy cameras anymore even?

·

yes, it's still quite a large industry😄

Hi @thestig 📷

As a huge fan of Sony mirrorless 7 line cameras I was waiting for the article like this on steemit. ♨️ Your article are great and very interesting with lot of information about this fantastic camera. The photos from camera are great and the last photo with little tree has beautiful smooth bokeh. I reed lot of review and seems like the best full frame camera on the market so far. I plan to buy a7II which is the previous model as a good value for money compromise, but in the future I would definitely like to have Sony a7 mark III too, when the prices drop a little. I looking for more posts about this camera and more quality photos. 👍🏻

See you soon...

·

Thank you so much for your comment @romanriviera! 👏 Got to love the sony mirrorless cameras. I see you can get the a7II for an amazing price these days, quality for the price is amazing. And with Sigma soon releasing 9 art lenses native for Sony E-mount we are starting to get quite a good selection of lenses to choose from.

Planing to continue with more post like this one, so keep your eyes open 😃

These look amazing check out some of my photos and please help me get as good as you.. Peace!

·

Thank you! I'm actually working on a series of posts educating basic photography, so keep your eyes open if you want to learn! 😃

·

Thanks! 😁

“There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.”

·

True 👍

Hope to have one like this one day

·

Start with a cheaper old camera and learn the basic then work your way up! you can do it 💪

Thanks for the review.
Helps people understand what they are buying.
Best regards.
TS

·

Thank you! Your comment is much appreciated.

the Japanese are just the best for building cameras

·

That is for sure 😃

Hello, @thestig. I'm really impressed with the image quality of your camera. Those last 2 pics say a lot. Nice compositions. But really, the ISO Range of it is out of the charts! Incredible!

·

Thank you sir! Yeah the iso is amazing up to 12500 and still quite good quality. Gonna test it some more in low lights and maybe do a post about it 👍

Wow that´s great! I am going to buy the sony a7 and i couldn´t been more excited

·

Thank you @farrerasphoto, you for sure got something to look forward to! Be sure to check out my new lens review of the Sony 24-70 2.8 GM if you want a great first lens 😃

Hey there. I have a client who is doing an ICO in the photography niche and is looking for Influencers. Does that sound like something you'd like to get involved in? If so, let me know. You can get me on Discord @yallapapi#1970

can someone promote my last photo? and help me get more followers? or tell me how to do it :/

Your photography is really good. but the better part of them seems to be the editing that you have done that makes the picture more admirable

·

Thank you @ehtisham! 👍

Congrats on your new camera 👊 My heart is aching for one of these so badly. Probably the best valued full frame option by far in 2018. Jeez I want one 😫

Edit - And just noticed you're a dronie ...A7 iii + drones and you've got my follow. What are you flying btw?

·

Thank you @steemmeupscotty! Hahah jee at this time best value for sure 👌 Yes i am a dronie! got a phantom 4 pro with me at all time 😎 So keep your eyes open drone content is coming 🙌

·
·
·
·
·

Sweet the mavic pro is such a handy size for a drone, with the phantom 4 i always need a backpack for dragging it around.. Hahah 10/10 great pun sir! 😁

·
·
·
·

Yup - It's a pretty new purchase and I'm getting such a kick out of exploring its potential, and you're right..it's such a handy size. No regrets so far :)

sin palabras a tanta belleza..

That last pic of a small an humble tree contrasted against the mountains is impressive, poetic in its silence.

·

Thanks, That's much appreciated!

Resolution looks fantastic. Thanks for the quick review! I'll go play with one as well now.

Thank you! You do that👌

The specs are good, the picture is also clear, I love this camera.

·

The more i use it the more i love it.

·
·

Nice, good product

The pics look great for sure, I'm searching for a new camera myself. My old Nikon D300s is about to break down. So your review is a great help. But first I have to save the money for it ...

·

Thank you! I upgraded from my old canon 400d, so i think you would get the same great experience as me.

Thanks for this quick camera review and few beautiful photos you took. Looking forward to lense review as well.

·

Thank you @zorank! The lens review is just posted 👍

I'm going to check on this. Thanks for letting me know!
