Just a smidgen of sun this morning on our run. I am finding out that the flash on the full frame Sony cameras works darn well, especially with blue sky in the background. It’s funny that the cropped sensor Sony … Continue reading

I sure have been impressed with the Sony 28-70mm lens on the Sony A7k camera. For a cheap lens it does a great job. But I found a weakness in it this morning: flare. It’s not awful considering how bright … Continue reading
