This weekend I decided to spend a few days in Paris with a friend. This gave me the opportunity to test my new Sony A7 Mark 2 camera. I had previously used it a little around Dublin but not taken it on holiday yet. One of the main reasons for buying it was due to the fact my old DLSR was beginning to feel very heavy as I carried around the camera and several lenses in a rucksack. The Sony is still full frame like my Canon 5D and is actually slightly higher resolution but only about half the weight of my DLSR.
So far I’m very pleased and the camera is living up to my expectations. I particularly like the ability to tap my smartphone against the side of the camera to pull off a single image to post to my social network or this blog as I’m going along. I’m particularly impressed with the quality of the night shots the camera takes in low light.
