On our run this morning, I sure had my doubts that the sunny skies in the forecast would be part of my day.
Yay!!! They did show up as the morning wore on and after we had a Burger King breakfast.
With the sun and 60 degree temperature, I figured that I should try out the Sony A6000 for action shots with the Sony 70-200mm lens. You know how I’ve woofed my doubts about the quick focusing of the Sony A6000. I keep reading how good it is supposed to be, while my experience with it has been somewhat miserable. Yup a nice day at Sota’s place…
Time for the experiment.
So here we go!
Well, I’ll be doggone! Look at this pixel peep from the previous photo.
Not bad at all.
And another pixel peep.
I must woof that the Sony A6000 with the Sony 70-200mm lens did a nice job today. It’s not a Nikon D7200, but it worked better than the Canon 50D.
So I had some fun with the Sony A6000…giddy-up Porter!!!!!
There’s a whole lot of jowl action going on today.
As for the Sony A6000, I put it in zone focus with the continuous auto focus. Definitely gave me some optimism of the camera’s ability to take action shots. As a matter of fact, it actually focuses a little too fast with many photos getting a sharp nose focus instead of my eyes. Every other camera I’ve used lags enough that if the eyes aren’t the main focus, then the focus will be on the back of my head and not up front on my nose. Well, well, maybe the new Sony A6300 will be the equal of the Nikon D7200? Or maybe even better?
I brought the GoPro 4 along too, you know, some video of Porter Basset racing through the brush.
Go Porter go!!!!
Dog oh dog, did I ever haul basset butt when dad told me to go find Karen. It’s a good video and may be one I’ll post in the future.
It was so nice out this evening that dad cooked up Angus burgers on the grill. Darn nice February day!
George had a darn nice February morning in 2008.
Not nearly as warm as mine, but darn nice!
