Camera for a newbie

Wandering Sagebrush said:
Looks good. Nice dynamic range. The shot of the pup is a good example.

i prefer to shoot in Aperture Priority so I can get the depth of field I’m looking for. For moving objects, you can boost the ISO to get a shutter speed that is high enough to eliminate blur. I suspect you can set your Sony to do that automagically.
This camera is way smarter than myself but, it’s a fun learning experience. Thanks Sage!
 
Fist pics with the 55-210 lens. Plenty of subject matter here on the farm. Redwings Blackbirds nesting in numbers in the plot now. They really go crazy when you approach their nest locations. They land close and make great practice.

I think you might have tricolored blackbirds on your farm, WjColdWater!

Nice shots with your new setup
Thanks! I had to google Tri Colored Blackbird. They look similar the Tri’s have a stocky build compared to the Redwings. Sounds like they only live in your neck of the woods and numbers are down. I’m hoping to get pics of Yellow Headed Blackbirds this summer in MN. I found a colony on a lake cattail island very cool birds!

[SIZE=10.5pt]Wow that looks great! Probably you mentioned earlier the model of camera that you use to make photos but I cannot find it. So what camera do you use?[/SIZE] :)
 
Crop sensor Sony! You get the 1.5 effective advantage of focal length with the full dynamic range of the Sony sensor, as mentioned by Wandering Sage. Sweet! Your 55-210mm reach is equivalent to 82-315mm on full frame. You can also play with single shot focus vs continuous (blowing flowers, BIF etc) and manual focus (good for macro, landscape, tripod work).

I moved from Canon to Sony two years ago and it's really cool to see their menus are consistent between bodies.
