My Hands on 1st Thoughts on the Sony A9! (Video)

Wow, what a day! I posted something earlier about the A9 right as it was announced and that page has all the specs of this new powerhouse camera. But for now, I wanted to record all of my thoughts of this new A9 while they were fresh in my head.

But MAN OH MAN what a camera. Yes, Sony has created my Desert Island camera…see the video below to hear WHY:

My Fascination with Astrophotography

By Yuri Schmid

I’m Yuri from Switzerland. I am 17 years old. Last summer I discovered my fascination for Astrophotography. For four months, I captured the beauty of night sky in Switzerland with the Sony A7S. The result of my journey is a six-minute long time-lapse movie.

The movie is part of my maturity paper at school. It took me many, many cold nights to get the footage. In total I took 16,000 photos. I had aSony A7s from my father and one sponsored by Sony Switzerland so I could take shots from different perspectives simultaneously. I used a Voigtlaender Heliar 15mm and the Sony FE 28mm plus fisheye converter and for one shot the Mitakon Speedmaster 0.95/50mm.

I was lucky, because Zermatt celebrated 150 years of Matterhorn’s first climb. They lit up the whole mountain from Italy’s side and the climbing route from the Swiss side and I was able to get unique and rare pictures.

I loved being in the mountains and did not only get nice pictures, I also learned to love a new life-style in nature.

Hope you enjoy it!
