    So.... When I saw the schedule I knew I had to stay late for this.... ;)

    The A7R III shooting sports feels like I am cheating! (yeah it is that good). And before you even say it, I know that these are actually not the best sporting images that show how good the A7R III is. I got about 800 images to go through.

    It seems so easy that anyone could do it. I remember trying to shoot this stuff on a 5d mark 1... Now I have shot alot of sports so maybe it is just me, but my hit rate with this camera is like higher than 80%. That is actually really high.

    When I say hit rate I mean did I get the shot I intended.

    Nah I feel ya man. I'm getting more keepers with the A7RIII than my 5D3, and I adored my 5D3! It is a whole lot easier to track things on this camera. I don't really consider it cheating though. With all these advancements in technology, it just makes getting the shot easier. It's still you controlling what is being captured. I've seen plenty of horrible photos taken with the A7RIII haha

    So here is the thing. When you are in the continuous shooting mode on the A7RIII (and the A9 if you are something other than the 20fps mode) you get a micro pause when each frame is taken. So when you shoot, you don't even need to see a review of the image you shot. You know if you got it, and what adjustments you need to make for the next series of shots. So much more efficient for sports shooters.

    If you Google her up, there's another photo of her with the mother of all camel toes.

    To be honest didn't really notice this one, but there's no hiding this other one... it's obvious as.
