Yesterday, Caj, Katja and me went to Ruissalo in Turku to try some astrophotography with our with our cameras. I had a Zeiss Batis 20mm mounted on my Sony A7. Unfortunately, it was not completely dark when we arrived in Ruissalo so we had to wait 1 hours until we could take some proper pictures. However, the milky way was still not properly visible. The pictures are all taken with ISO 1600 and have been a bit modified in Lightroom and set to black & white. The digital control panel on the Zeiss Batis lens really helped in the night to see if the lens is set to infinity.

Sandisk has recently introduced it’s new SanDisk 1TB SDXC card which could be quite interesting if you take a lot of pictures and videos on your trip. Even so the Sony A7 does not support UHS-II the benefit of USH-II are more visible when reading the files into your computer. In addition you have a future-proof SD card for future camera generations.
Recently, GoPro announced it’s new GoPro Hero5 Black and it’s GoPro Hero5 Session and I was wondering if there is actually a need to buy any of those GoPro cameras if you can also buy a more or less waterproof IPhone 7?
