>>2732342 I'd agree. I have an a7r, and I fucking love it. Insane dynamic range, and I use all my canon glass on it. I try to convert as many people as I can to sony. Pic related, sony a7r, with canon 24-70 L ii
>>2731984 >- how do I get gud? Practice, and shoot mindfully. Learn to open your eyes, and seek out interesting scenes, and THEN bring out your camera, rather than saying "I want to take a photo" and trying to force some boring shot of a center piece on your mom's diningroom table. Ask yourself "is this a photo that anyone is going to want to look at?" and be honest with yourself about the answer. >- is manual the best way to make unique-good looking shots?

Capturing the photo in-camera is only half of the job. A complete photo has been corrected and polished up for presentation.

The sticky is a good place to start, also I'd recommend reading Understand Exposure by Bryan Peterson to get down the basics of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. >- is manual the best way to make unique-good looking shots? it depends. >- when is autofocus approriate? always, unless you're...
