About a month ago, I received a much anticipated parcel in the mail…a new Sony a7iii Mirrorless Camera! I had been saving for months and months to buy one and finally the day came and I could not wait to try it out.
The main reason I went with the a7iii was because of it’s low light capabilities. I love shooting astrophotography, and it’s probably my favourite form of photography, so obviously a camera with excellent low light capabilities, as well as a full frame sensor, was the way to go.
I had done astrophotography before on my Sony a65, however with it being a more outdated and amateur camera, paired with the crop sensor, I couldn’t really get the types of shots that I dreamed of capturing.
So of course after I received my a7iii in the mail and I unboxed it on my bed, I went outside to shoot the stars.
Not a show stopping shot, but certainly better than those taken on my Sony a65. Shooting with 1600 ISO was unheard of on my Sony a65 simple because of the poor quality it gives. Now though, I have more than enough ISO to play with, as well as the benefits of the full frame sensor on the a7iii.
