Sony A7R Wedding Camera Review at Studiorlphotography.

Jean-Luc:I just uploaded a few photos form the Sony A7 + Kit Lens on Flickr ( It maybe useful for futur buyers to see how it performs in “real life”. The photos are from an “out of the box” camera I bought just an hour before (I already had a charged battery from my NEX-5N) and are taken in Strasbourg, France, at the end of the afternoon.

Alex:I thought I show you my first Video on the „Hohe Wand/ High Wall“ Mountain in Austria: Since I do photography for almost a decade I could use a lot of my knowledge in composing the scenes in video. I made it with the Sony A7R and the 35 and 50 Summilux 1,4 ASPH FLE The Scene where you see me is shot with the 50 in APSC Mode and I used the „almost selfmade“ Igus Slider which comes cheaper than ready made sliders. for the Voice I used the Rode NT1A and I edited all in FCP X. I used to be a canon shooter an skeptical about the EVF but for the A7R I sold all of my Stuff.
Gavin: I finally published my detailed A7R review and setup guide and would be delighted
if you’d share it on SAR.

Gavin:Rather than rush a review after a few days of use, I thought I’d get three solid months of usage under my belt before publishing the review:

Dierk:Seit Kurzem nutze ich die NEX-6 an 4×5″ Großbild und bin ganz begeistert. Hier sind erste Bilder dazu:

Henri:I want to share my website with you which I just launched. I am an enthousiast photographer, and I use my Sony Nex 5R to for travel photography. Lenses I mostly use are the 35mm 1.8 and the Sigma 19mm 2.8. I hope you like my work!

Massimo: all taken with the subject settings, autofocus, low lights, PP with Silver EXF (A7R, 35FE, ISO6400, 1/80, f2.8)

Alexandre:I shot some beautiful thai models with my Sony A7R and the Zeiss FE35mmF2.8:
