Mirrorless Hits its Mark: Still Photography with the Sony a7RII

Photography, Reviews

This review was originally published on B&H Photo’s Explora blog where I am a regular contributor.

It seems that, this time, Sony has made a camera that will make even the most steadfast DSLR shooters pause and consider mirrorless cameras, if only for a second. That, in itself, makes the a7RII a huge accomplishment and makes me extremely lucky for the opportunity to take it out for a test drive.


A Weekend with the Olympus Air

The usual cameras that come through the B&H offices are what you would expect: DSLRs, long zoom point-and-shoots, mirrorless, etc… But every once in a while a company will come by with something completely different. The Olympus Air A01 is one of these cameras and, luckily, after spending a weekend with it I found there was a lot to enjoy about its unique lens-style design, once you get past the initial setup and controls, that is.

The ultimate in resolution for full-frame DSLRs: this is what Canon’s latest 50-megapixel 5DS and 5DS R offer users. These cameras take a huge leap forward in resolution for the legendary 5D series and, when one looks at the files, they are impressively sharp and detailed. I was also able to observe the main differences between the two models and zoom almost endlessly into those images. It was a fun experience, and anyone looking for maximum resolution and detail will not have to search for much longer.

Here at Ithaca College there is a large group of professors who stand by their beliefs and ideals. These professors are activists and constantly go out and protest and do work in order to make these ideas known and to fight injustice. As a part of a collegiate institution they share their beliefs with their students and try to be the inspiration for them to get out and fight for what they belief in.
