Shooting With Sony’s Killer A9 Almost Feels Like Cheating

If you’ve ever wondered how a photographer managed to capture the exact moment of an incredible end zone reception or the instant a bird takes flight, the answer, in part, is that the photographer’s camera also captured the garbage moments directly before and after that golden frame, with a very expensive camera rattling off photos at tommy gun speeds.

It’s a little bit sad that phones have replaced cameras because after watching this animated history of cameras by Portero Delantero, you start to miss all that fun camera hardware with quirky designs and lovely character you just don’t get from a thin rectangular slab.
