In this scene I wanted to see how well the low lights did with the highlights. I exposed for the sky and brought out the details in the foreground in post. The Sony raw file holds up pretty well, not quite as good as my Nikon D700 but I think it's good enough, enough so, you wouldn't be able to tell what camera or size of sensor took the photo.
Testing late evening colors with the Sony a6000.
As I continue to test my Sony a6000 camera and push the raw files I am very impressed. The raw files aren't as good as my Nikon NEF's but they are really close. It must be the difference between the Sony's 12 bit raw and the Nikon's 14 bit raw. None the less, this camera is keeping up with my Nikon D700 and then some. I'm really enjoying the small form factor and portability of this power-packed camera. Image below: Black & White Double Rainbow
A road with no cars on it! That's what a good thunderstorm will do, get everyone off the roads so us photographers can capture a scene. I just really liked how this road looked as it led down into the glowing sky, then add to that the "do not enter" sign. - ominous
I ran down to the beach with my Sony a6000 right after a big thunderstorm. I was hoping to catch the lightning offshore but instead there were rainbows everywhere. Gotta love the double rainbow action.
As I wait for my son to round the slide to get an action shot, he stopped himself and looked directly back at the light. This just made for a really cool shot. Being ready for randomness in photography is what really creates magical moments.
I've been shooting some test photos with the, not so new, Sony A6000. I think it has been out for a little over a year now. I have to say, it competes very well against my Nikon D700. At 1600 ISO the Nikon D700 is much cleaner than the Sony A6000 but I don't shoot all that much at that high of ISO. I'm also using the Sigma 19mm & 60mm Lens. Very, very impressed with this little camera
