Hit rate with manual focusing on the SONY A7r
Today I did a classiv portrait shoot, 8 people on location, lighting was 6 Nikon speedlights in the person and room:
I shot with a Voigtländer 75mm f2.5 at f4
ISO 500 (letting in some of the available light, but keeping it about 1 step underexposed, it was a quite brightly lit room)
I shot totally 281 frames using focus peaking and eyeballing, upper body shots, I was moving around a bit and time was short so no time to zoom in and check focus while shooting.
So, my hit rate was: 204 was 100% sharp, 46 was perhaps usable, 31 was really out of focus.
So 72% was perfect, its OK, but my Canon 5DmkIII can do bettar than I can….;-)
