Our Photography Gear

This is our current photography gear

Sony A7RII

Our best body we have so far. With the size and portability of the Sony A7 expect with extremely high Megapixels count, good high iso resolution, in body stabilization, and most importantly for us, SILENT SHUTTER, no more nasty looks at restaurants! It is definitely worth the cost of entry for this camera.

Sony a7 Full-Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera

Our go-to portable camera. We this camera when we don’t want to lug around our DSLR and the quality is just as good. This is a Full-Frame Camera in a small package. We like the Wi-fi photo transfer to our iPhone.  It works much better than the Canon systems. Check out some of our thoughts on this camera using legacy lenses Here

We don’t have any Sony lenses, we use this adapter to mount it on to our 50mm Canon FD lens
