    Some Shots of Bits and Pieces of the Rio Grande with the
    Sony ILCE-9 + FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS (SEL400F28GM)
    Handheld

    Black Mesa (White Patch in lower left quadrant is the Rio Grande)










    Viewed from White Rock Overlook Point.

    Handheld is fine with Birds.
    Tripod use is better for landscapes with that fairly large and heavy lens.

    The A9 was set up to shoot something else, but what the heck, this opportunity was there for only a very brief moment.

    Very nice pictures, but I keep forgetting that this is the A9 thread. Beautiful detail in the feathers.

    Thanks Joel. I started this thread in September 2015 before there was an A9, or A7r.3, or A7r.4 or A9.2. I intended it as a reference thread for all things Sony E related. I even would include Sony APS-C gear here in this thread as well.

    This thread is following an older thread, namely
    A7r - and why I'm keeping it ...
    https://www.getdpi.com/forum/sony/49...m-keeping.html
    from September 2013.
    That was my response to jonoslack's thread A7r - and why I'm not keeping it ....

    BTW, I still have and enjoy using NEX-5N, NEX-7, a6300, A7r, A7r.2 and A9.

    Eye-AF for Animals?

    I have switched on Eye-AF for Animals in my A9.
    My eyes aren't good enough anymore to see in the EVF whether it's effective.
    Looking at these images Eye-AF certainly doesn't seem to get in the way, it may actually doing its Job!







    Sony ILCE-9 + FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS + 1.4X TC @ 560 mm, f/4.5, 1/640 s, ISO 4000.

    Also these images are heavily cropped.
    The A9 with 6,000x4,000 pixels seems to handle that well.
    I used Focus Area Center or Flexible M.
    These little birds move fast and erratically.
    It's hard to predict where they will be next.
    I either have my focus area on their head or I don't.
    If I do the A9 focusses instantly and I get in this case an L burst of sharp images.
    Of course, it would be doable but a bit harder with my A7r.2 or A7r.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Under Metering Mode the A9 offers these choices:

    • Multi
    • Center
    • Spot: Standard or Large
    • Entire Screen Avg.
    Highlight

    Here I used Highlight.
    Seems very useful for certain situations.

    Cedar Waxwing (Back for the Winter)



    Sony ILCE-7RM2 + FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS + 1.4X TC @ 560 mm, f/4.5, 1/800 s, ISO 100, shot on tripod.

    This was shot with the A7r.2 and not the A9.
    PROS: A7r.2 (42 MP) has more resolution that the A9 (24 MP).
    CONS: A7r.2 has slower focus speed, while buffer is emptying slowly it also blocks shooting new images, missed opportunities. An A7r.4 would be a definite improvement.


    Sony ILCE-9 + FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS + 2X TC @ 800 mm, f/11, 1/500 s, ISO 250, shot handheld.

    Both images cropped to 2344x2344 pixels.
    I was shooting both systems next to each other.

    Using A9 + 400/2.8 FE + 2x TC on tripod should give much sharper images, especially with a faster shutter speed.

    Comparing A9+2x TC+400/2.8 FE vs A7r.2+1.4x TC+400/2.8 FE
    Max f/5.6 vs f/4, A9 syswtem has 9% higher resolution!

    K_H , thanks for inviting all those bushtits to a grand dinner party.
    Many Thanks B L, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    The Bushtits seem to stick together as a sizable group.
    I have never seen just one show up by itself.

    Before I put the feeder out I noticed them hurrying through our backyard trees, foraging. A Bushtit group shows up at the feeder hanging in the tree quite regularly, my guess every half hour or so and stays for 2 or 3 minutes. Then they leave the area.

    When feeding there is a lot of flight activity to nearby branches and twigs as not all of them comfortably can hang on to the small green feeder cage. I also shot a few videos of their activity. When I had the feeder attached to a small pretty thin twig, their weight caused the twig to bend down quite a bit and the fixed camera couldn’t keep all the feeding activity in the frame.

    They are really fun to watch.
    ‘Thanks again for your feedback, much appreciated!
    With best regards, K-H.
