No time to process images and post them tonight: shot all day on the most beautiful sunny but frosted-snowy day of the past 30 years of my life—unbelievable and no one was there. Shot all day with 5DS R and Zeiss lenses. It was frustrating in a way: every way I turned there was a 15mm, 21mm, 35mm 55mm, 85mm, 135mm composition. It was almost overwhelming to have so many options, all 10X better than the usual conditions. I shot and shot and shot, then took a break doing some videos on the A7S II about cameras and stuff. I’ll probably post them too when I'm back.
Now up the canyon to build a fire and cook my trout in a dutch oven. Temp was 25° F and falling at 17:30, so it will be a nice crisp night.
Below is what yesterday looked like early in the day, and then late in the day. Sunny most of the day, but cold enough that the “frosting” persisted on trees and such for most of the day—sparkling glory all day long.
The Sony A7S II shot in uncompressed raw has an impressive sensor, albeit only 12 megapixels (4240 X 2832), generating 25.8MB ARW raw files in uncompressed raw format. Noise is hard to spot even in the red channel for the blue sky. I’ll be showing some full resolution images along with histograms in my review.
The A7R II is no slouch either.
