I usually post my shots in the A1 thread even though I do use the 600GM most of the time. But today was trying out the A7RV so I'll post them here.


So how did it go ? I have been toying with the A7rV idea for a while now - pics look gorgeous !!

EDIT: Just read the rest of the thread Duncan !![/I]

Not looking to replace the A1 but a second camera with a wide angle lens but I might just wait for the A1ii though.

Wait, does that mean A7RV fares better at BiF then Z9

I'd say the AF is better but you still can't get over that non-stacked sensor shooting experience at only 10FPS. So if I was forced to choose I'd take the Z9 over the A7RV.

So I think that the A7RV has better AF than the Z9. Just like most Sony cameras it can lock onto subjects and track them against busy backgrounds and when the subject is fairly small in the frame. I found the results more consistent than the Z9.

But, the problem I have with the A7RV and any non-stacked sensor camera (excepting maybe the R5) is that you don't get a smooth uninterrupted view as you are firing the shutter. This is fine for short bursts of 2-4 shots but if you hold down you quickly lose your bearings and it is hard to keep the subject in the frame so the AF can do its work. The only way to avoid distortions of wings and leaning backgrounds is to shoot in MS on the A7RV. Also to get 10FPS you have to shoot in MS. MS is actually easier to shoot than trying to use ES on the A7RV...with ES in H+ it is a very jerky slideshow effect where you aren't seeing a live view at all. In H in ES it is better but then you are only 7-8FPS and you still deal with blackout and some lag in the EVF refreshing the live image.

Therefore, I'd rather shoot the somewhat inferior AF of the Z9 in order to have the blackout and lag free shooting experience that comes from the stacked sensor and fast readout. The Z9 is the best of the bunch for this even though the EVF is relatively low resolution and not one of my favourite EVFs to look through. But when actively firing the shutter and panning along it provides the least laggy image of all the other stacked cameras I've used (A9, A9II, A1, R3).

I did some completely unplanned birding activities on my last travel. Too bad my longest reach was with the GM 70-200mm lens and as such, I cannot post the images here. But I do share your experience entirely. The blackout free shooting experience on the A1 for BIF weighs in gold. The A7r V performed really well on perched birds though and the cropping ability of the 61MP means a lot.

My first image of one of 4 peregrine falcon chicks from this morning. Before I left for Europe/Morocco a month ago, the eggs hadn’t even hatched yet. This is the most developed chick, presumably a female. The others are still sitting in the nest. It cannot fly yet and it just hops around but it flaps its wings quite a bit already. I am sure it will take its maiden flight in the next few days…
