    Sony A7s3 and other Sony tips with Juan Pons

    Sony A7s3 and other Sony tips with Juan Pons

    Introduction







    Welcome to the Master Photography Roundtable part of the Master Photography Podcast Network!  You are joined by thousands of photographers listening to this show who are all on the same journey to master their photography.  I am Brent Bergherm, the host for this episode, and I am joined by Juan Pons!







    Juan, thank you for joining us, I’m very much looking forward to talking about the new Sony A7s3 that was just announced a couple days ago. 







    SONY A7s3 Camera and other Sony stuffs







    Sony recently announced a new camera and I wanted to use this to talk a bit about the Sony system. Here at Master Photo Podcast, I think all of us are Canon shooters. So when Canon releases something we naturally get excited. However, there’s certainly so many others out there and I wanted to bring some attention to the new Sony announcement. And I needed to do it justice, so I figured I’d bring a Sony shooter on and that’s why Juan is here.







    Juan, let’s take a look at a few specs, and then we can talk about them and think about how practical it is for photographers, and videographers.







    Main Specs list.

Love This Podcast!

I have a few podcasts I listen to regularly and this one is right at the top of my list! I love the content that is discussed, the guests have been fantastic and I have learned so much over time.

I can really relate to Jeff because I am also a hobbyist photographer, doing jobs here and there for pay but primarily it’s my hobby. I just felt that I could relate to him through his personal photography journey.

The hosts on this podcast are so professional, yet relatable. I would love to meet them someday at one of their events!
