Photographer Finds Spider Living in His Camera’s Viewfinder

Imagine looking through your camera's viewfinder, finding it strangely blurry, and then realizing that a fairly large spider had made its home inside... and that your eye had been just a fraction of an inch away from the eight-legged creature. That's what happened recently to Canadian photographer Joel Robison.

The Sony a7R IV is Now Available, but You Shouldn’t Buy It

The latest Sony flagship full-frame mirrorless camera is finally available (I say "latest" instead of just "the" because Sony insists they have at any given time up to three and sometimes four flagship cameras). And yet, I contend that a vast majority of those interested in the a7R IV shouldn't buy it.

Sony a7R III vs a7R IV Image Quality Comparison

How much of a difference can an extra 19MP and a newly-designed really make? Apparently, quite a bit, as you can see in this quick side-by-side comparison of JPEGs shot on the 42MP Sony a7R III and the newly released 61MP Sony a7R IV.

Testing the Sony a7R III with the $5,700 Canon 200mm f/2L

Sony's latest mirrorless cameras are much improved when it comes to shooting with adapted lenses from other manufacturers. To test just how well it works, photographer Manny Ortiz got his hands on a $5,700 Canon 200mm f/2.L IS lens and mounted it to his new Sony a7R III camera.

This is the Amazing Tethering Speed of the Sony a7R III

I purchased the new Sony a7R III last week as an upgrade to my a7R II. I’ve used my a7R II in hundreds of shoots over the last year and it has always given me amazing results, but I’ve had one major issue with the camera: tethering speed.

B&H is Shipping an Extra $3,200 Sony a7R III to Customers by Accident

When I picked up my new $3,200 Sony a7R III camera from B&H Photo at UPS on Monday morning, I was surprised at how it was packed, because it was a box inside a box. This never happens, so imagine my surprise when I opened this rather large second box to find two cameras inside.

A Teardown of the New Sony a7R III

Our pre-ordered Sony a7R III finally arrived this weekend, and we couldn’t wait to crack it open and see what’s inside. The a7R III has been receiving a lot of positive reviews and I can see why.

Sony a7R III Named a Top 10 Gadget of 2017 by TIME

Sony sparked a great deal of excitement when it announced its blazing fast full-frame a9 camera in April, but somehow it managed to make an even bigger splash with its a7R III unveiling in October. In addition to fantastic reviews coming out about it, the a7R III just got another solid vote of approval: TIME just selected it as one of the top 10 gadgets of 2017.

The Sony a7R III Eats Stars: New Report

Has Sony actually fixed its "star eater" issue in the new a7R III? Photographer Drew Geraci tested the camera earlier this month and found that the problem "is no more," but now new reports are suggesting that the a7R III does indeed still "eat" stars and cause them to disappear in long exposures.

Testing Sony’s New Pixel Shift Feature in the a7R III

The new Sony a7R III has a new function called Pixel Shift. This function basically increases the resolution of your images by 4 times. In short: the camera takes 4 photos and shifts the sensor 1 pixel in between. By combining these images later (the camera itself doesn't do this) you get an image that has 4 times the resolution of a normal raw image (4 x 42 megapixel).

Sony a7R III: The Star Eater is No More

Sony's latest mirrorless cameras have incredible specs and glowing reviews, but astrophotographers have been complaining about a "star eater" issue in which stars are mistaken for noise and removed from long exposure photos. There's some good news, though: it looks like the new Sony a7R III doesn't have the "star eater" problem.
