    Thanks so much, Bob! Not at all, it’s the best apsc camera ever, lol! I shot a multi day catalog 99.9% in crop mode, love the ff quality of the sensor but we need a small raw option. The A7rii is my main camera now, just picked up a second one.

    Beautiful job, as always, Mikeā€¦it all flows so well. Have you been shooting the A7Rii much in APSC mode? With all my small, sharp Sony E primes in this format, I am liking both the video, and the 18mp stills, I get out of this camera in the crop mode. Is that so wrong?:-)

    Thanks Ken! I could have shot this with the gh4, the a7s and a few other cameras. Now the main appeal of the a7rii is that I can use one camera for everything I shoot and don’t feel compromised in any department :)

    Very nice, and creative. I’m curious if you feel you could have accomplished this with anything less than the super camera you used, or does it offer something that other cameras don’t? Thanks.

    Hi Mike:

    In a word: fantastic!!

    Great composition, love the B&W and sound mixing. The Sony video system’s capabilities are impressive.

    All the Best,
