Power in Sony

I have had the Sony A7r4 for 12 months and i have been tempted in the A9mk2 for my birds in flight but dropping to 24mp from 61mp is a big no no. If they ever bring another camera out with more power and yo can crop like this i will buy it, when your told that you don’t need the 61mp don’t be put off by negative comments and reviews look at my images tell people to look what this camera can do. With the.


So when you combine it with the Sony 200-600+ 1.4 Extender you can crop till your hearts content. As i sat next to the Lake yesterday 4 Sheep came past behind me and started eating the leaves on the trees. I was around 100 metres away so i took some images, the first image is has not crop.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
