I have been a Sony guy since I started taking pictures seriously. The only issue I don’t like about my Alpha 77ii (my second Sony SLT) is the Image quality at high ISO levels. For the longest time I never used much more than a 1000 ISO setting due to the noise which would appeared from time to time. I avoided situations in which I needed more light. However, in the summer of 2015, I started to use ETTR (Exposure to the right) which helped me to improve the quality but I never was totally satisfied with the outcome.

I am sure you may all know this, but when you run around long enough with a big lens, the day comes where you will be asked to shoot a wedding. For my first wedding I didn’t receive any money and what hurt me a bit was I never got any feedback, so it was clear for me I never would do this again.

Of course as time went on I continued to get requests and the second of these was pretty serious. I mapped out a plan to rent an Alpha 7s to get this this and some other projects done. To rent one, would have ended up netting me an 8 day fee of about 600 Euros. Looking at that price it made more sense to own one. Long story short end, after a nice conversation with my wife I ordered one Alpha A7 s at Amazon with the crazy hope that I might find a reason to send it back because it is too expensive as a secondary camera. I went with the A7s, because I wanted no more issues with photo noise high ISOs. What I wanted was a camera which is be able to cover all the needs of a wedding (5000 -6000 ISO at church), airplanes at night (25000 ISO) and some other night stuff at a image quality which would look fine for normal screens. I knew that a printed stuff didn’t need the high resolution we have on PC, but, most of the pictures we use today are viewed on the web with screens with pretty high resolution. Let me just say this… So far, so good…
