Meta’s Digital Photography Reviews

My Personal Reviews of Macro Photography Camera Gear and Macro Photography Books, are based on my own personal field experience while hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, using the Best Sony Alpha Cameras, Sony Macro Lenses, Sony Flashes and LED Ring Lights, Tripods, Camera Bags, Camera Straps and Camera Harnesses, and Camera Accessories for use with my 24 Megapixel Sony Alpha SLT Cameras.

Sony Alpha 77 II Camera

Sony Alpha Cameras – 24 Megapixels

I use my 24 Megapixel 2012 Sony Alpha 65 SLT Cameras for Macro Photography and my 2016 Sony Alpha 77 II SLT Cameras for Nature Photography and for shooting Hummingbird Photography. Sony’s 24 Megapixels result in large 6000x4000 pixel images.

The Sony Alpha 77 II has the advantages of better auto focusing, a super fast Sony BIONZ X Processor for much quicker Auto HDR Processing and up to 1/8000 shutter speeds to freeze Hummingbird’s wings.
