Sony A7RII At ISO 12800

ISO 12800

One of the first things I do with any camera I review is a low light test.  I like to push the envelope and work backwards.  I thought I would start with ISO 12800 on the Sony a7R II and quickly realized that the camera handled it with such ease that I was hardly pushing anything.  I’m quite impressed with the low light capabilities of the camera in initial testing.

ISO 12800 with minimal processing and no noise reduction applied.

The lens I used was the Sony 24-70mm F4 .  A full review of this lens will be forthcoming.

Stay tuned to PhotolisticLife for a full review of the Sony Sony a7R II in the coming week.

The ability to shoot at ISO 12800 comfortably is an incredibly liberating feeling.  For photographers who shoot only natural light this camera may be the best thing since those vacuum hair clippers…  You know, the one from the 80’s or 90’s where it vacuumed your hair so it could cut it.

    Hi John

    Can’t wait for your full review and a comparison against you Nikon Df. As its two years on I expect it will be so much better 🙁
