    Having just returned home from Antarctica I want to share an article on how well the Sony a7r iv did in Antarctica, especially under tough situations.  https://photopxl.com/sony-a7r-iv-pushed-to-the-limits/

    Kevin: One of the challenges put forward for the A7RIII was that it is somewhat less than waterproof (especially the battery door). Has this been improved with the A7R IV?

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    Great images, BTW.

    I too love my Sony GM 100-400.  I adopted one of your techniques which you shared a few months ago and reiterated here:  Hand held with high shutter speed and auto iso.  The method works great, and is much faster and more spontaneous than a tripod based technique.

    Absolutely stunning!  I hope the nikon Z system comes out with a 100-400 zoom.

    Kevin

    I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this article. I also use and love Capture One and I see we make similar adjustments in C1. I bought Denoise AI, but never used it which I now see has been a mistake. I got my A7Riv based on your earlier comments and now I see it is time to get out and use it more often.

    Thanks.

    Lou

    Hi Kevin,

    One of the videos on the Topaz web site suggested that selecting the AI Clear button rather than the default DeNoise AI button after the plug-in opens is often adequate.  I’ve been using this with manual settings and have found low to medium “Remove Noise” yields outstanding results.  That same video notes that AI Clear does some post-capture sharpening, even with “Enhance Sharpness” set to Low.  I’ve also found that I don’t need to use “Recover Details.”
