Mark Galer Sony A1 Photos

Mark Galer Sony A1

As the embargo lifts on stills, Mark Galer Sony A1 photos are the first ones you should see. Mark demonstrates what the Sony mirrorless flagship is capable of. Last week, I shared images from Sony. These are the first from a pro photographer outside of the company.

They’re excellent. Additionally, in the Flickr gallery, Mark adds comments that, “There has been no noise reduction or sharpening in post production.” I wouldn’t expect you’d need to make any. A point ofter overlooked, is that in a news cycle there is little to no time for adjustments.
