    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    Love the wireless control via phone for light painting cars,only just started having a play at doing this but the A7III works a treat. 12 separate exposures all blended in photoshop and used an LED panel to light each one.

    car diagnostics software ?

    We use Delphi and Snapon in our workshop which gives us a fair cover for most makes along with limited programming of most systems. As already mentioned if you need to replace ECU or keys etc then only O.E equipment works and most now you need to not only buy the equipment to run it but also...

    I dont consider myself a pro along the lines of F1 but i have covered British Superbikes and worked for MSVR and Pirelli for the last eight years and am still on the fence about changing over fully to mirrorless although i know a few that have started. Having invested over the years in Canon as...

    Loved having a look through your flickr,your shots with that 55mm and also 50mm are superb and put my Canon 50mm f1.2 to shame so i should really consider getting rid of my Canon 85mm and 50mm for the Sigma equivalent. Seeing you use the Fuji X-T2 also i still think its one of the nicest...

    Asked them about trading in the brand new and more or less open box A7MKIII i have after 1000 shots as i wanted to trade it for an A9 and they offered £1300 for it,laughed and then asked them to price up my 300mm f2.8 IS L MKII against an A9 and 70-200 f2.8 G master lens lens but once they...

    Fully agree and I compare the A7III against the 5DMKIV in all honesty but would love to have a go with an A9 to actually run it up against my 1DX MKII. Biggest problem I have is having come up through most of the 1 series bodies that are built like tanks the Sony’s won’t take the knocks off of...

    First go with the A7III on native glass as hired the 70-200. Big learning curve over both the Canon and Fuji cameras i have used with a few things i love and a few things i hate. Really need to get my hands on an A9 for a play as although i love the dynamic range of this one the A/F struggles...

    Would love to ask them to stop a race so i could bracket a few exposures ;) Most of the time at British Superbikes i still expose to retain the highlights and pull back as much shadow detail as possible in post so the more and cleaner i can recover the better.

    The only good thing about the larger items of glass is you normally dont loose much on them over time and infact with Brexit my two big primes have actually increased in value.

    Doing only motorsport photography im stuffed with two lenses the price of a small car,have a 300 and 500 at the moment but thinking of adding the A9 and the 400 f2.8 if i make the switch fully.
