On February 26, 2018 Sony announced the third generation of the A7 camera line – Sony A7 III. The original A7 was the first Sony mirorrless camera, released back in 2013. It was amazing how a full frame camera can be squeezed in such small body, but the camera had some major lay-downs. It was slow and not very responsive. An year later, in November, 2014 Sony released the second generation of A7 camera line. It was improvement over A7 but incremental, without any big updates.
On October 25, Sony announced the third version of their A7R camera – A7RIII. Keeping the same body design and the same sensor of it’s predecessor, they managed to squeeze more out of them, and to improve pretty much everything else.
The full detailed review with sample pictures will come soon, so this article is going to briefly touch some of the main features and characteristics of this new model, and compare it with the direct competitors.
Few days ago Gunther Wegner published an open letter to Nikon. He is a well-known time lapse-, nature-, landscape and wildlife photographer, based in northern Germany. Gunther is also originator and developer of the LRTimelapse. There he admires Nikon for finally acknowledging Time-Lapse photography. Gunther Wegner suggests some important updates that could be done in the future Nikon cameras to make the process of doing time-lapse easier and well-controlled. Gunter also suggests his help and expertise if Nikon are willing to use it.
