First A7rII user reviews on Amazon/BHphoto. Live streaming event from Adorama and Rooftop meeting from FocusCamera.


Unboxing The Sony Alpha 7Rii, RX100-4, RX10-ii by Gary Fong.

You can now read plenty of A7rII owner reviews at Amazon (Click here scroll down) and BHphoto (Click here). Many readers don’t like the quick overheating of the camera. But I guess you have to live with that if you want to shoot long 4K videos. If that’s an issue for you better get the A7s with external recorder. That said all reviewers really do like the camera!

There is also an upcoming new double A7rII US event:
1) Adorama on August 19th: Transitioning from DSLR to Sony Mirrorless Cameras

2) Focus Camera on August 25th:

James sent me this:

Really Right Stuff just added A7RII baseplate and ‘L’ plate for preorder.  New feature according to sales person is they have managed to allow for FULL LCD ARTICULATION with the new A7RII baseplate. Also this is a full width plate that surrounds the battery door (with access for battery)….  IMO this is much more comfortable to shoot handheld with the baseplate attached vs. the shorter plates that don’t surround the battery door…
I have the original RRS baseplate for the A7R and it is by far the most solid and best finished plate I’ve seen for the A7R..  It’s more expensive than other brands but worth it for the more solid and robust design and superb finish.  I have one on preorder for my A7RII
