Why I Ditched My Nikon Kit for Sony as a Wedding Photographer

Changing camera systems is not something to be taken lightly. As a die-hard Nikon fan since I first got into photography, I didn’t think I would ever consider switching away from them. And yet, here I am, sitting with no Nikon kit in sight having just shot my first wedding entirely on Sony kit and no regrets.

The Move to Mirrorless From DSLRs

Back in May of last year, I finally made the move and got myself an a7 III. I had wanted a Sony body for quite some time but was hesitant to switch. Before getting into my long-term review, I’ll first explain what made me make the switch.

Sony a7 III vs Canon EOS R vs Nikon Z7 vs Fuji X-T3 : A Low-Light Shootout

Photographer and filmmaker Max Yuryev just did a shootout to see how top mirrorless cameras compare in shooting 4K footage in low light with high ISO. In the 10-minute video above, Yuryev compares the Sony a7 III, Canon EOS R, and Nikon Z7 full-frame mirrorless cameras as well as the APS-C Fuji X-T3 and the 4/3 Blackmagic Pocket 4K.

Here’s the Sony a7 III, Nikon Z7, and Canon EOS R Side-by-Side

The Sony a7 III, Nikon Z7, and Canon EOS R are three of the main cameras battling it out in the full-frame mirrorless camera wars. In case you're wondering how the three cameras compare in size with one another, the Dutch camera store Foto Hans Keuzekamp has shot a set of photos showing them side-by-side.

A Guide to Switching from Nikon to Sony for Wedding Photography

After almost a decade of photographing weddings with Nikon cameras, we decided to trade our D750 cameras for the Sony a7 III. Here are a few thoughts on how the process went and why we feel it was the right decision.

Comparing the Sony a7 III and Canon 5D Mark IV for Astrophotography

I’m an avid night sky photographer that cut my teeth capturing the stars using the original Canon 6D. I shot with that camera for years until purchasing the Sony a7S (Mark I) after reading about how it could essentially “see in the dark.”

Sony’s ‘Star Eater’ Problem Has Been Defeated in the a7 III

Over the last year or so, firmware updates from Sony introduced a much-publicized penchant for Sony Alphas to “eat” stars even in RAW files, apparently due to an internal noise reduction or anti-aliasing routine users could not turn off. Stars were smoothed away along with the noise in exposures longer than 3.2 seconds in some Sony cameras (and longer than 30 seconds in others). I feel that in the a7 III, the Star Eater has now been largely vanquished.

Sony a7 III Review: An Elite Camera with a Friendly Price Tag

I recently had the opportunity to test the Sony a7 III thanks to the generosity of Glenn Wenfield from Sony North America. Since this is a camera that has already generated quite a buzz, I want to start by discussing how I am approaching this review.

The Sony a7 III Has Amazing Low-Light Performance

It seems that every new Sony camera announcement these days creates an insane amount of hype because the company keeps pushing the envelope in different directions. Photographer and filmmaker Max Yuryev just tested the newly-unveiled a7 III's low-light abilities against the Sony a7R III, Sony a6500, and Panasonic GH5, and he was "shocked" by how impressive it is.
