How I pho­tographed ASIAN Ge­o­graphic’s Cul­ture story:“Van­ish­ing Act”

ASIAN Ge­o­graphic con­trib­u­tor Pongkiat Run­gro­jkarnka – af­fec­tion­ately known as Pocky – shares his de­light in the thought­ful im­prove­ments that make night shoots 100 per­cent bet­ter with Sony’s Α7RIII tech­nol­ogy

I en­joy pho­tograph­ing the city at night. With Sony’s new­est full-frame high-res­o­lu­tion mir­ror­less cam­era, the Α7RIII , I can cap­ture mo­ments with bet­ter dy­namic range and greater re­spon­sive­ness.

The Α7RIII has few changes to its over­all de­sign, but the real dif­fer­ence is in Sony’s at­ten­tion to de­tail. With a big­ger rear nav­i­ga­tion wheel, added joy­stick, and the er­gonomic po­si­tion­ing of its but­tons, the Α7RIII is an over­whelm­ingly pleas­ant cam­era to use. At its heart, is the 42.4MP4 full-frame Ex­mor R™ CMOS sen­sor pro­vides a high dy­namic range, lead­ing to bet­ter de­tails from shad­ows and high­lights in post pro­cess­ing. With an elec­tronic viewfinder, LCD panel, ISO 32,000 and an up­graded aut­o­fo­cus, I’m able to shoot in chal­leng­ing, low-light con­di­tions with the cam­era op­er­at­ing the same speed and accuracy as in broad day­light.

Though op­er­at­ing on the same bat­ter­ies as the α9, I can eas­ily take 600 to 650 pho­to­graphs per charge, greatly light­en­ing my load. The ad­di­tional SD card slot al­lows con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing, with­out wor­ry­ing about bust­ing ex­ist­ing mem­ory space – and be­lieve me, ev­ery photographer knows the frus­tra­tion of be­ing un­able to cap­ture the per­fect mo­ment with­out hav­ing to first delete a few hun­dred pic­tures, es­pe­cially now that the cam­era boasts dou­ble the burst rate and faster record­ing speed! This is one func­tion you’ll def­i­nitely be thank­ful for.

This im­pres­sive list of up­grades in spec­i­fi­ca­tions and us­abil­ity will surely please dis­cern­ing pho­tog­ra­phers look­ing for a high res­o­lu­tion cam­era with high speed func­tion­al­ity – and makes the Α7RIII, in my eyes, one of the most im­pres­sive cam­eras in Sony’s α Series lineup.
