Low light

Low light shots taken by SONY A7R with the 55m f1.8 lens

Low light sample images with the SEL5518Z (Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA) on the Sony A7R body shot at around 4 PM in February 2014 in Budapest.

The aim was to test and demonstrate capabilities of Sony’s new ILCE sytem with one of the best system lenses that currently ranks number 4 on DXOmark’s camera data base – only Zeiss 55mm f1.4 Otus (Nikon bodies) preceding it.

Various settings were used but most common is aperture set at  f5.6 with EV-3 and sensitivity ISO400 in most of the cases – check exif data for more. All images were shot in jpeg format and none of them is changed, altered or manipulated in anyway – no Lightroom or Photoshop  were used.


A different place, on a similar cloudy day for landscape photography.
