Most of you know that I got the new Sony a7II mirrorless camera at the end of December. Here is my announcement if you missed it. It is my first full frame camera. Here are some of the benefits of a full frame camera
- Low-light performance. Digital imaging sensors have tiny little light sensors that record light and produce a pixel.
- Depth-of-Field. Since a 35mm equivalent (full frame) sensor is larger, it can accomplish more shallow apparent depth of field.
- Viewfinder Brightness. Because full frame cameras use larger lenses, they can produce a brighter viewfinder image. Very handy.
Anyhow, yesterday we had an absolutely gorgeous afternoon. The sun came out and the temperature was a 55 degrees which is quite warm for us in the winter. So Chris and where off to our local park that has the Molalla River running through it. Here are a couple of photos I took of it.
This is a photo of the river.
This next series of photos were taken by a boat ramp that is one the river, so the current is a lot more active. I just like how my camera took these. They are basically straight out of the camera. The last one I cropped to show off one smaller area. I took these photos with my Sony 18-200 E-mount lens. I used “auto” as the settings since I was just seeing what the camera would do by itself.
Oh yeah, the weather today is back to cloudy and rainy. We should be getting over an inch of rain today. So yesterday was a delightful treat.
