When you manually focus, look for a "shimmer" around the edges of what ever it is you want in focus, and it'll nail it every time. That said, the total differences in noise performance are small when compared to other full-frame cameras and ultimately the use of a reasonably fast aperture lens will make much more of a difference in low-light performance. Despite the lens’s dark f/4.5 aperture, the camera made nice images in nearly pitch black conditions. The small urban center of Heredia where we stayed had a wild mix of contrasts from nicely maintained apartments to corrugated steel shacks. Print or … I’ve put together a collection of some of my favorite photos from my time with the camera so far. Either way, (if manual focusing just skip the AF steps).

No other enthusiast camera line seems to offer anything quite comparable as installable apps so it’s hard to compare to the likes of Canon and Nikon but I might have chosen to ignore this feature of the a7II if I didn’t make extensive use of the Time Lapse app. I think that these AF heavy modes can work in a pinch but they’re still not as good as a traditional DSLR.

His website probably describes it better (and also has examples. I still liked the camera.

The a7ii adds IBIS which is noticeable improvement in some settings but overall not that noticeable (a7 got finicky in very low light or a lot of motion where the a7ii seems less prone to blur as would be expected). I personally felt that image stabilization would be an attractive enough feature to go for the upgrade over the original a7, especially since I love using manual focus lenses like the Voigtländer 15mm/4.5 Heliar (full review) that otherwise would not offer the benefit of stabilization on any other camera. I believe this is a software decision to allow the camera to simulate, in real time, the depth of field of the lens. For example, I can manually set the focal length to 24mm for my Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 Lens when shooting with it to ensure the most accurate stabilization. Despite Costa Rica’s role as one of the most affluent Central American countries, it still has a substantial amount of poverty and crime.

Only on occasion would the clouds part to show the summit. The native FE lenses are the absolutely quietest lenses I have ever used for focusing (they’re almost perfectly silent, it’s amazing) and the a7II catches focus fast enough in most situations. I personally still think it’s lame that a feature as simple as an intervalometer is not included by default but at least it’s an option. The Time Lapse app offers a number of presets for various timelapse shooting situations as well as custom settings. I don’t think I would have been able to stay still enough for the 1/6th shutter time had the a7II not had the SteadyShot system enabled.

Under normal expectations this wouldn’t be a problem as long as the viewfinder isn’t overused but there’s a serious battery draining issue that plagues the a7II and other Sony a7-series cameras: as long as the eye-sensor detects anything in range, the camera will never enter power-saving mode. For low-light, it’s certainly not the a7S, but it’s quite good, even when paired with slow lenses. The stabilization system in the a7II is not a replacement for a real video stabilizer rig like a gimbal, but it does provide a tangible improvement in the smoothness of motion in most handheld shots. bigger.
