Photographed with the a65
Feb 26, 2013

A few shots with the a65.. Obviously I love landscape and there will be more to come. I have done some very pleasing work with this camera in low light "very little noise". I really do like it alot. I also have an a35 which also does some nice work. Images have been downsized due to recommendations from DPR.. I hope you enjoy! Thanks

Excellent...+Been thinking about an a65 from my a55. the upcomming a58 is throwing a monkey wrench in my plans though. Your pictures look great james.

looks like you have a nice handle on the a65....and the horizon(ha ha)

Very nice, it looks like you have an alpha that suits your photography perfectly. again well done,brian

Stunning use of those clouds! And that blue boat!  Just amazing.

How do you manage good shots in low light without noise?  Bright lens?

Sorry I meant to respond more quickly but I've been really busy. It's a Sigma DC 18mm – 50mm F2.8 HSM. It's the one I keep on my camera most of the time and replaces the kit lens.. I like it very much for its size and weight as it is well-balanced with the A65

Regards,

James

Yes, a bright lens and staying with low ISO as possible. If I can use the widest aperture possible, then I bring up ISO no greater than 800. For lowlight, I tend to use shutter priority if I need to brighten up the scene with my chosen lens.

I have read "Is this the right amount of noise?" For the most part and I think there is a point to where being overly picky is pretty obvious. Remember the noise you see on screen, will less likely show up when you do large prints. The file sizes of these sensors are extremely large and you can do a lot of work with them. Just my two cents

Yes I got a really good deal on the camera body and decided to stay away from the kit lens. The one I use primarily is a Sigma DC 18mm – 50mm F2.8 HSM. This stays on my camera most of the time and I like the sharpness of it. Of course I can't forget my vintage Minolta glass

I think the A65 is an excellent camera with a lot of capabilities. I don't regret the purchase and with the new SLT's coming to replace the older generation, I'm not worried about that at all. After all, we have to live and may as well enjoy what we have Still have my handy dandy A35 though

Regards,

James

Thanks -- that's the idea I was getting on that thread too: that I am being too picky, at least with that set of images.  That's actually the answer I was hoping for rather than that I had bad copies of my lenses.
