Matt Kloskowski On Why The α7R II Is A Game-Changer

Sony Artisan and landscape photographer Matt Kloskowski discusses all the innovative features and intuitive design highlights of the super popular α7R II that made his switch to Sony a colossal upgrade. 

What features stand out most to Matt?

  • The electronic viewfinder - "I LOVE the electronic viewfinder...The electronic viewfinder shows you EXACTLY the picture that you're about to take... to me it's huge."
  • Apps - One of Matt's favorite apps? Sky HDR, "It's like being in Lightroom on the back of your camera."
  • The tilt screen - Allowing landscape photographers like Matt position their camera low to the ground but still have the screen completely visible has proved invaluable. "The tilt screen is AWESOME."

When Sim asked Matt how shooting with the α7R II has changed his photography he responded saying, "It keeps me creative because I'm not worrying about the techie stuff as much...It makes my experience better."
