The Sony a6400 is here and ready for some testing but first I have some settings I need to change to make the camera more fluid to use.

When I get a camera, the first thing I do is change some of the default settings. I want to get the best the camera has to offer when I capture photos and video. Here are my Top 10 settings I changed first on the Sony RX100 MK VI.

It’s Jerad with Ditch Auto. Today I have the Sony RX100 Mark VI, and we’re going to talk about the Top 10 settings that I changed on the camera first. Now I just opened up this camera. Today is the day that everybody started receiving it if they purchased it. Of course, some folks are lucky enough to get things from Sony early for review but I bought it and here it is. As always, I have links down in the description below to the camera, the extra gear, the batteries, the SD card, anything that’s going to make your experience using this camera better.

The Sony a9 is Here!

In Photography by Jerad HillLeave a Comment

I recently received the Sony a9 I purchased as a pre-order and have been putting it through the paces. I am excited to report back and share my findings with everybody. The biggest question I have been receiving is whether or not it is worth the added cost over the Sony a7rII. The jury is still out on that decision. I have to spend more time with the camera to determine if it’s worth the price. This camera is geared toward Sports Photographers, but I was intrigued when I saw the zero blackout of the shutter. You can continuously look through the shutter as you take photos and not be interrupted by a photo preview or anything distraction. You can just continue to shoot. It’s hard to explain, but it’s amazing. Here are a couple of photos I took with my Sony a6500 of the camera while I waited for the Sony a9’s battery to charge up. Make sure to follow @ditch_auto, @jeradhillphoto, and @jeradhill on Instagram to see more photos as I continue to test the Sony a9.

In this video, I review the device and teach you how to use it.
