Soon to Photograph Snow, Assuming Sony A7R III Arrives on Time

See my Nikon wish list.

I expect the Sony A7R III to arrive Friday. Assuming it does, I plan to head to the mountains for some cold weather shooting near snowline early Saturday morning.

Sony A7R II shipping Nov 30

Snow is a particularly challenging subject for a Bayer matrix sensor, so I have a keen interest in seeing how well Sony’s pixel shift works (and hoping like heck that Adobe supports it soon so that I do not have to deal with Sony software).

Pixel shift with my best lenses for Sony (Zeiss Loxia and Zeiss Batis) ought to be stunning, particular applying both pixel shift and focus stacking.

I have the Fujifilm GFX + new 45mm f/2.8 in hand as well, and the fixed (hopefully) Nikon D850 as well.

Storing 42/45/50/100 megapixel raw files

You’ll need a high capacity camera card like the Sony 256 XQD for the Nikon D850, or a high-capacity SDXC card for the Fujifilm GFX or Sony A7R III. Using pixel shift on the Sony quadruples storage requirements.

I bought two 12TB drives and two of the empty OWC Mercury Elite Pro enclosures for travel use; I want to be able to take all my images with me on the road now as well as have more backups of work I cannot replace or backup better until I am home.

Rigorously lab tested and OWC certified.
