Loving My Sony A77 Anyone Else Want To Share Your Pics
I have had it about 2 months now and finally getting the hang of using it correctly. Loving it 100%
Here a some of my latest shots using it with lenses from a 30mm macro up to a 500mm f8 mirror reflex. Got out of my comfort zone and moved from mostly semi auto mode into mostly manual mode and am very happy with the outcome. Still learning and I believe that it is only going to get better.
Thank you MM Anderson, Cathy Lindsey and Mel Steinhauer :)
I spent a lot of hours playing with manual mode shooting macros of Tulips on the kitchen table using different lenses and found that changing the f stop and exposure time really made a difference in the DOF and image quality. So with that I was able to use that info to increase the quality of pics taken elsewhere. Can't wait to get out and try some more ideas. Taking the tripod next time. :)
Wait to go Ernie! So glad you like it! As you know I bought min just a few months earlier than you....and am still,learning too but love how much I can do with it. The shots above are fantastic. Here are a few of my recent favorites taken over the last few months with the Sony a77! -matt
Thanks Ernie! The tulip is fantastic! I'm excited to really get a chance t use the new camera now that spring is here! I compared a few shot from last spring (old cameras) and the new spring shots and there is no comparison!
Here is one taken this morning using my 500mm f8 mirror reflex lens handheld.
Have many more to go through from this morning but out of time for now. But for any of you that live in the Colorado springs area they are down at the Fountain Creek Nature Center. Don't know how long they will be around but hope for at least a few weeks.
Great photos! I almost bought a sony. But was disappointed with a previous expensive camcorder I had purchased from them. Not sure if manufacture matters more than composition and technique. Most are pretty good these days. My film camera was a Pentax and only reason I didn't buy Pentax digital is because they hadn't been in the digital market that long at that time.
My husband bought me an A65 and I have now figured out where my buttons are and have been having fun with Manual Mode. I do have some old Minolta lenses that fit this Sony, so saved a bit of money not having to buy more lenses right now. It's been a ton of fun!
Great shots Ernie! I especially like fire moon! I recently got to shoot a live concert of a friends band and was really impressed with the camera at high iso! Yes there is noise but I was still impressed! Here is a link to a gallery with photos from the night.
