Alright, buckle up for my Sony A99II review! Hold on tight, ‘cause we’re about to have some fun with this beast! Let me tell ya, it’s a bit like meeting a superhero in the photography world. It’s big, bold, and it means business. This camera ain’t messin’ around, folks. It’s got all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a top-notch camera, and then some. It’s like Sony went, “Let’s make a camera that can do everything, and then let’s add even more!
So, I got my hands on the Sony A7, and let me tell ya, it’s like a sleek little gadget from the future. I mean, it’s so small and lightweight, it’s like Sony took a camera and put it on a diet. But don’t be fooled by its size, this bad boy is packing some serious tech under the hood. Now, the autofocus on this thing is pretty sharp. It locks on to your subject faster than you can say “cheese!
A short tip in case you’re using a digital camera - mirrorless or similar - with an adapter to mount a manual focus lens. The common way to perform manual focus with mirrorless cameras is to use focus peaking and focus magnification. This approach gives mixed results, as the focus peaking highlighs hides the image details while focusing, sometimes becoming visualy too intrusive and blocking the subject. The alternative way is to set the camera JPG sharpness to the maximum available value.
