These images are a hiking documentary series of the upper Dana Glacier Canyon and Dana Glacier, in the Ansel Adams Wilderness abutting Yosemite National Park. It is a strenuous hike to get to the glacier over multiple extended boulder fields involving class 4 climbing and a brief section of class 5.0a and an 'interesting' down-climb of the latter.
Thus the A7R II and two Zeiss Batis lenses were employed in an ideal real-world scenario that dovetails with the strongest core features of the A7R II: relatively small and lightweight lenses, full frame sensor, image stabilization, the convenience of an EVF. Shot without a tripod, as climbing in such conditions is a risk with a tripod.
- Examples: Dana Lake, Dana Glacier, 'Approach'
- Examples: Dana Lake, Dana Glacier, 'Glacier'
- Examples: Dana Lake, Dana Glacier, 'Return'
Includes ACR conversion settings analysis for each image, notes on the scenery, and images up to 24 megapixels, some with crops also.
These examples give a good sense of the behavior of the Sony A7R II under most circumstances, and are an excellent set against extreme cases that are not the rule.
