As most of you know I'm always trying to produce the best quality images possible for my clients and myself.
To that end some new and exciting capabilities have been introduced this year by Sony with their new A7r camera that has many of the same capabilities as the Nikon D800e that I have been using for the past year. The most exciting capability is the ability to adapt almost any lens in our inventory to take advantage of the 36 megapixel sensor in this camera. The Nikon is an incredible camera for many things but it is unable to use some of the highly specialized adapters and lens combinations that I have used in the past. Over the next few months I will be implementing some of these very high resolution lenses and adapters to make the workflow here at the studio even more streamline.
This adapter set up was one that I used for doing some of the high-resolution book images for the Peabody Essex Museum and the McIntyre carving book. This was when I was using the Canon 1DsMK3 with its 23 megapixel full frame sensor with the introduction of the Sony A7r this setup can now be used with the much more advanced and capable 36 megapixel Sony sensor. The lens shown here is a Pentax 35mm SMC FA that has the capability of producing some of the sharpest images possible.
