My 5d2 has 99,000+ actuations on the shutter so I thought it was time to upgrade. I'm keen to buy the relatively affordable Sony A7r. I've spent a fair bit of time reading through reviews where people suggest there is a problem with shutter vibration. I wanted to ask forum members if it will effect my style of photography.
I shoot with 4 main lenses for landscape, 99.9% on a tripod. They are typically wide lenses: Canon L 16-35mm, Canon L 24-105mm, Canon 24mm TS-E and Canon 70-200 f4 L with a lens collar.
I want the capability of shooting at anything from 30 seconds to 1000th of a second.
With this in mind should I be worried about the shutter vibration.
Due to my limited eye sight I think I would benefit from the wireless feature enabling me to shoot un-tethered to an Android tablet. I wonder if anyone has tried this and if so is it quick to set up and quick to receive an image on the tablet. To me it is pointless turning on the camera then faffing about syncing the camera to the tablet.I don't want to have to spend time pressing buttons and waiting for a connection. Ideally I'd like to turn on the tablet and camera then fire off a RAW shot and see it within moments on the screen. I must stress I NEVER shoot Jpeg so unless I can do this in RAW it is utterly pointless. Plus I couldn't care less about shooting from the tablet, I just want the large screen to judge focussing.
One other point I might question, I do have access to an ipad mini. I'm led to believe there is an Andoid app for the i-pad mini, therefore it should be possible to shoot to the i-pad. Any thoughts on this ?
