How do you rate/tag images in camera?
let's say you hv a long day out shooting, when u know u got a nice shot, you rag it. When u hv some down time.. Maybe revisit the image to send to your phone?

Will fly to Japan for winter holiday in Feb and scared that my a7iii wont stand -10 and the heavy snowfall, previously doing just fine in Hokkaido around -1 and minor snowfall with slight battery drain issue. Got any suggestion for rain/snow cover? That blardy peak design rain cover is RM2xx. mad.gif

My A6000 runs fine in -10c at Nikko's winter and fully wet from Kyoto all-day drizzle during autumn without cover. Pretty sure A7m3 will do just fine, the higher capacity also hold more active charge against the cold.
Or just get a simple plastic/pouch for extra sure.

Good to hear that, honestly it's the heavy snowfall is bothering me the most.

Thanks
The settings mostly wide open at f/1.8, iso100, shutter speed in the range of 1/6000.
Most are 85mm, very few in between like 1 or 2 is 35mm.

The cold bothered me more than the camera instead lolz. A good glove is a must, that still enable easy fiddling with camera settings.

A6300 here. Try -30c for a few hours on the top of Mount Kiso-koma in Nagano (well, to be exact the Senjojiki Cirque a bit below the peak) doing star-trails and starfields, with moderate snowfall all the way to the shooting point (took a good 5 mins hike). Coverless of course.

Camera did fine no problemo and is still kicking just fine now (a year later). I... didn't fare so well (the cold was... well damn cold) lol so I didn't end up taking as much pics (as well) as I would have liked (even tho that clear weather at the end was pretty miraculous TBH).

That said, while the body usually does fine (even with snow), the condensation that forms INSIDE lens elements repeatedly when you go in and out of heated areas are more of a concern for non-weathersealed lenses. Trapped moisture are fungi magnets unfortunately... and in the short term they also fudge up your sharpness all to kingdom come while they're there.

Then again if you store your lenses well afterwards (and have oodles of dripaks/dissicants for your cam bags) you should be fine, considering how my SEL24 and Sigma 1.4/56 are still fungi free right up to now.

Similarly, make sure no snow gets into your bag... which you might find to be nigh impossible depending on how hard its falling down. Again, a whole bunch of dissicants (and spares) might help with the bits that did end up sneaking inside.

Of course if you're running weathersealed lenses you should be fine TBH.

Depend on your budget. If your nikon still making good shots, it is not really worth it to switch, just for slightly lighter and smaller camera setup (traveling concern).

If you really switch to mirrorless world and buy Sony A73, you should wait until year 2020 or 2021, Sony A74 release, then buy Sony A73 for cheaper price, probably 5k by that time.

Yeah my nikon still making a good shots but i think the time has come for mirrorles..my gear just sit in the drybox all the time and off course i didnt bring it with me to travel because of the weight..my early plan is to buy Sony RX100 III for travel but when i checked the price i realize that i need to pay nearly 4k for it and still my nikon gear remain untouch in the drybox..better sell it & use the money to buy sony..

You will still find your gear sitting inside the drybox often after you switch to Sony FF. Maybe few hundred grams lighter but not that much either. If you getting back similar setup your camera bag will most likely still be the same bag? Not to mention the lenses are mostly costlier biggrin.gif

If you want big difference maybe need to go APS-C or Micro 4/3 with respective mount lenses. But you must accept the quality drop.

Perhaps main reason I haven't jump on FF biggrin.gif 1) Bigger size 2) Higher cost
