Cameras

sonya9

The Sony a9

Sony's new flagship, 20 fps, totally SILENT mirrorless camera with no mirror black out (in Electronic shutter mode), this camera sets the new standard in full frame high frame rate capture for sports, news, wedding and action portraiture.

The Sony a7R II

Sony's 42mp camera is still the king of the hill when it comes to file size and dynamic range.

The Sony a7S II

This camera has become a favorite of filmmakers around the world for it's incredible video performance and jaw-dropping high ISO capabilities.  One of my favorite cameras that produces high quality stills as well as exceptional 4K video.

The Sony a6500

Sony's premier APS-C sensor camera that now includes 5 axis In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) as well more capability to shoot longer 4K video footage. This camera also fires at an impressive 12 fps of still photographs and it fights well above its weight class.  Simply the best value in photography today!

The Sony a6300

Sony's "second in command" APS-C camera is a great value camera and a solid performer that also does 11 fps for stills.  This camera also does great 4K video and is a superb camera for folks that already have stabilized lens (no IBIS on this camera).  A significant step-up from the little cousin, the a6000 (below)

The Sony a6000

This little camera is the one that started it all with a tiny camera that fired 11 fps and tracked a moving subject -- the fastest in it's class at the time it was released.  This camera was the one that got me hooked on the Sony system, never looking back on DSLR and got me to switch.  If you're just starting out, or if you don't need all the 4k features of the cameras above, this camera is still a great choice and will make some awesome photos for you!

Flash Units

Flashpoint eVOLV 200

This has to be one of the most innovative flash units that has ever come down the pike.  The reason is that it is relatively small (not much bigger than a conventional speed light) and because it is also powerful (about 3 1/2 times more powerful than that speed light).  But the best part of this is that it is a radio receiver flash that works off the great Godox (Flashpoint) R2 transmitter (or off of the R2 Lithium Ion flash unit).  Two of these flash units and you have got your wedding portraits handled or your in studio beauty portraits for a mere fraction of the cost of using one of the premium European brands.
