Sony A7RII, Thailand : Movie Stars, Models, Landscapes, Beach resorts, Skyscrapers

I’ve just bought the new Sony A7RII and I am testing it in order to make a review on Youtube. Before finishing the test I’m gonna post right now the pictures that I take everyday. So I will update this post several times a week with my new pictures.

I had previously the Sony A7R, I was very satisfied of it, that’s why I was sure that I would like the New A7RII even more with the new features : contrast and phase detection autofocus, in-body stabilisation, 42 megapixels sensor, 4k video shooting ect.

I will be able of course to use all the FE lenses that I have : FE55mmF1.8 , FE35mmF2.8 , FE16-35mmF4 . the 2 first lenses don’t have the optical stabilisation which was a problem when I was taking videos. now, with the in-body stabilisation, my videos will look better and I won’t need to stabilise them in iMovie .

Let’s have a look a the pictures now!
