I’ll report back in a week or two!Love to hear how you get on with it.
Yes first mirrorless. The EVF looks like I’m playing a video game. Will take a bit to get used to.First try at mirrorless? Can you reuse all your old lenses?
Well, I hope you enjoy it. I found I am a mirrorless person, but the EVF is a must!I’ll report back in a week or two!

And I got the adapter as part of the kit but I also got the native z mount 24-70 f4. So I can still use my existing lenses (although I lose the weight advantage then).
There again, my mindset when working with digitals often reflects the mechanical film cameras I work with.Same here. I always use full stops for ISO, I guess it’s a mild OCD thing. Same with aperture generally but I’m more flexible with it and will go to f9, f13 etc if I have the perfect shutter speed dialled in for my shot.
That’s a nifty tool. I found that dpreview also does a good job of mentioning upper ISO limits on their camera reviews. Seems like we smaller sensor shooters need to be more mindful of higher ISO than our full frame friends.Only manual. Was thinking of some cases where I might put a cap on max ISO range and let it choose the setting within the range, but have not actually implemented such strategy so far.
Simply trying to keep ISO @ min possible.
Found this graph to be useful as well: http://photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Sony ILCE-7RM3
That's a great ( and useful tool) ! My 5D2 is getting kinda tired and am thinking of replacing it in the next few months , so this could be helpful.Found this graph to be useful as well: http://photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Sony ILCE-7RM3
Generally it is the native ISO for the camera. In my X-T2 it was ISO 200. On my Canon 5D it was ISO 100. On my X-T3 it is ISO 160.I wonder which ISO gives the best DR if that is dependent at all?
On the original question. I set the Aperture and AUTO ISO most of the time.
Photons to Photos is a nice website run by a fellow who does a lot of testing of various cameras. Your 6D Mk2 is in his database (I made a link for you here); based on that graph, the absolute best dynamic range occurs at around 160. It seems like you don't get a significant drop in dynamic range until you go above ISO 400, but even then it maintains decently until ISO 1600 or so, when the dynamic range begins to drop off more steeply.Thanks so much! Where can I find this information for my canon 6D M2?
I’m not sure but I imagine it will be 100. I remember reading years ago (about my old original 5D) that the ISO should be used in full stops for best results, for example: 100, 200, 400, 800 etc rather than using the incremental ISO’s such as 125, 250, 320 etc (I cant even think of others as I never use ISO that way!) the exception is my X-T3 as it has a base native ISO of 160, so I’m fine with it!Thanks so much! Where can I find this information for my canon 6D M2?
There again, when you use both, it's easy to get into the mindset/practice of ISO being your least manipulated value.I still remember film cameras and my parents talking about "film speed." Talk about manual mode....
I added a Z7 to my D500.Love to hear how you get on with it.
Thanks. I’m not really in the market for a new camera at the moment.I added a Z7 to my D500.
With the Nikon F to Z Adapter all lenses work flawlessly. The AF is very fast with Z and F Mount lenses.
The Camera feels very reliable and the XQD Cards are incredible fast.
Unfortunately there is no battery grip and only 1 card slot.
I use both Auto iso and Manual Mode. It depends from the circumstances.
Let me know If you have any questions.
That‘s a very good comboI think I’ll stick with my D750/D7100 combo for a while. See what happens in the industry in the next few years.
But there is an Auto iso adjustment in D5300, with the minimum and maximum iso control and shutter speed limit control.I remember changing from a Nikon D5300 partially because it lacked an Auto mode, but now that I've had a few years to mess with feature-rich cameras and really understand the relationships, it probably wouldn't have bothered me as much.
