Re: Peaking for quick work, magnification for perfect focus

I am quickly learning that with the features on this camera it is ALL about practice. Last night I practiced using the peaking in near darkness, and NOW i'm coming up with all winners as I'm now more familiar how to manipulated the focusing so the peaking is right where I want it. It's all good, and indeed the low light performance of the A77MkII is astounding once you've become familiar with it. I was even playing at ISO12800 last night and was shooting subjects in a dim livingroom where I literally could not see any detail regarding the subject, yet the subject exposes so well I can see all the detail as if there was a lot more light on it. What a fun tool. The SSS sure does do a fine job as well as I'm easily shooting at 1/5th sec and nailing good detail with no motion in the shot. This is good stuff
