Luminar 2018 Works With Sony a7RIII RAW Files

It’s time for the Miami Street Photography Festival again this year and I am shoot most of it with the Sony a7RIII, but I have my Fujifilm GXF50S handy for wide shots. I haven’t processed many files because I want to do some comparisons in Lightroom since I am more familiar with it, but Luminar 2018 is really growing on me and when the digital asset manager is released it will likely become my go-to application for editing. I got really fed up with waiting for Sony a7RIII support so I started browsing files on my a7RIII and then opening the corresponding file on my computer with Luminar 2018, which isn’t convenient, but it’s better than JPG in my opinion.

So far the Sony a7RIII is working great and autofocuses quickly in low light… most of the time… Sometimes the Sony a7RIII will hunt and hunt for no reason, but the problem is very rare. This is different than the Sony a9, which never hunted for me and always locked onto what I wanted to shoot and never once would let go of the subject. There is definitely a slight difference between the two cameras, but the Sony a7RIII image quality absolutely dominates the Sony a9. I will prepare higher quality photos to share in the future, but for right now I am covering the events down in Miami via my Instagram along with DepotMSA for a change. (Now on 500px)
