Scientific based reviews of new cameras with extensive studio testing is a necessary evil. It gives a benchmark and comparable files that are useful to put sensors against each other. However for the ordinary user, nothing beats regular, real life shooting.
We had close friends coming over for dinner today. They’re a very handsome family so it’s always a pleasure to shoot them at length. Their little boy was unwell and cried a good part of the evening, but I managed to capture him at times he was ok.
As you can see a little brother/sister is on the way…
Overall I loved how the A58 and assorted lenses handle the light and colors tonight. They also operated very well and yielded a good rate of keepers in Lock On continuous AF. Tomorrow we’re leaving for my in-laws’ beach house in Brittany, which is a very important test for all my cameras since I’ve all taken them to that same spot since 2009, so it’s very easy for me to compare how they perform there.
