Canon Shooter reviews Sony A7III

Vasko Obscura: Hello fellow Canon photographers, if you’ve been on the fence about switching from the Canon system to the Sony system and you’re still unsure about which direction to go in this is the review you’ve been waiting for. I’ve been a Canon shooter for 14 years and I bought a Sony A7III in May 2018 with the hopes of using my Canon glass on the Sony camera as a full time professional photographer. In this review I share my opinions and experiences as a Canon shooter using the A7III as my daily go to camera. I talk more about my personal real world experiences in part 2.

Hope you find the review helpful.

Studio V Photography Toronto Glamour Photographer. Hey guys so here are two vlogs from my YouTube channel where I give a few opinions my my experience shooting with the Sony A7 III plus the Metabones adapter with the Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8 L and the EF 24-70mm f2.8 L. 

I'm really enjoying the Sony A7III so far but the more I use it the more I find little things that bother me about the the camera. First and probably the biggest issue I have with the SOny camera is the colour science. The colours just seem to be off. The skin tones of models is just off. And the camera's ability to adjust the colour temperature accurately when in AWB mode and moving between sunlight and shade seems to be really strange. You can see in the first video when I shoot Jisel Lynn in the shade and then in full sun her skin tone changes. I also test video in the first video. I'm not a videographer but from what I've been able to figure out the auto focus does not work well at all with the adapted lenses. Auto focus also seems to have issues from time to time when shooting stills but that problem can quickly be fixed by switching the camera on and off. However, if you are planning on shooting live events with adapted lenses it might not be the best especially if you are shooting an event like a wedding when you CAN'T MISS shots like the first kiss. 

This is just a basic review of my experience so far. I'll be making a video with a full review soon.

Sony A7III with Canon Lenses Photo Review

Studio V Photography. Hey guys exciting news. I did my first photo shoot slash lens test with the Sony A7III with my Canon lenses. I'm using the Metabones 5th generation adapter with the Sony A7III. Just thought I'd put that out there as I'm sure a lot of you will be asking me about that. The YouTube videos where I explore Canon lenses on a Sony camera are linked below. 

My first impressions are very positive. The images out of the Sony A7III are very sharp and clean right out of camera. It doesn't hurt either that my model, Bella Ricchi, is stunning. I think she makes the photos look better. lol. On a more serious note the only problem I've noticed with the camera lens combination so far is an inability to focus at times. Every now an then the focus would stop working completely and I would have to switch the camera on and off. After that restart the camera lens combo would work normally again. Another thing to note is that the focus with Canon lenses on the Sony A7III is a touch slower than Canon lenses on a Canon camera and that is totally understandable.

Thanks for reading, this is all for now. I'll make more videos and vlog posts as I learn more about the camera. 

In this video I do a quick test with the Canon EF 300mm f2.8 L on the Sony A7III with the Metabones adapter to see how sharp the images are. I'd say they came out really sharp.

A lot of reviews talk about how the Sony A7III does not have a time laps mode so I wanted to make a quick video that shows how to achieve the time laps look with the Sony using the S&Q settings. It's very simple. Just open your S&Q settings in the menu and then select 1 frame per second. Turn the dial at the top of your camera to "S&Q" than adjust your exposure and hit the record button. All done.

A few YouTubers messaged me after my last video with questions about how to setup the A7III for use with Canon lenses so that auto focus works. I'm no expert on the subject but here is a little video that hopefully helps you setup your cameras.
