    [QUOTE=contrelamontre;397944]Matt, Vivek, pegelli: You're once again exemplifying that the NEXes take to street photography like a duck to water ...

    Two from the Munich streets (and passages) in order to deliver on the promise to Vivek (also trying to warm towards LR 4):


    "Over There, No?"


    NEX-5N, 16-55/3.5-5.6 @ 22mm, f/8.0 & ISO 2000


    This one speaks to me. Nice picture. In my opinion, the title takes away from it a little bit, but that's just a personal preference. Good job!

    Douglas: Thanks a lot for the kind feedback, truly very much appreciated! Could you elaborte a bit on your qualms regarding the title, please. Since I'm no native (English/AE) speaker, maybe I missed my own intention. The picture should illustrate the unhospitality of certain urban enviroments in some (photographic) way.

    PS: Tried to contact you per PM, but you exceeded your private message quota. Thus my request here.
    Best regards - Hermann

    Mysore, India, just outside the gate to the palace and the place you had to check your camera. Jan. 2012. Nex 7 with 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS.

    Vivek: Thanks! Nope, had to check it in. I later saw a tourist and a guard doing a tug of war over the tourist's camera. The guard wanted to confiscate it!

    Taylor: Thank you!

    Interesting you say that, most of my shots in this thread are KM 5D, A700 and A850. Only the last two posted this morning are Nex. I think "street" is in your eyes, not in the tools, allthough I agree the Nex works well for it.

    Btw, like your tunnel shot a lot, great perspective combined with a decisive moment.

    pegelli: Yes, really interesting. My "first" camera is a Nikon D 700 (so you won't find pictures from that camera here) and I use it for "street" as well. But for me the primary reason for purchasing the NEX was indeed its capability for that genre. That might enlighten the false conclusion . But of course you're right: You will achieve great results in street photography with any camera and any lens, assumed you have the eye for the scene and for the moment that makes the difference (keyword: distinctive slice of everyday life).

    Funny thing too: A very similar picture to the passage-capture you mention, same place, other cast and almost two years ago, I took with the D 700 and the 24mm/1.4G lens (shared btw in the Nikon picture thread over there some time ago). And thanks for the compliment of course, truly much appreciated.

    So, take care, keep up your street photography and keep up sharing the results with us!
    Best regards - Hermann

    Matt: Particularly like the second one (nice composition and perspective here), the papaya vendor/customer capture from the set further up and most of all, that you're back.

    Re: Street (images)

    A few more with the Nex 5 (indeed a good street camera Hermann, just flip up the screen and use the same way as an old TLR), works well for me:

    Photographers on every street corner, are't they a real pest


    Sol by day, lots of people


    Sol by night, still lots of people


    Plenty to sell on Sunday morning

    Hermann: Thanks! Went to India and I've been pretty much tied up at work, since we got back. Glad to be back. I'm enjoying seeing and posting photos again.

    Pegelli: Really like the last one with the older gentlemen!

    I like this one but that's a suspicious look you are getting and that's a rather large weapon she has. Did she chase you off?

    Paul, Thanks. Never had any such problems so far with normal people. Once (3 years ago) during this shot, I was stopped by a young woman (not in the picture) who was curious about why I make photos. She was fine with my explanation.

    Looks like (the 250 mirror lens) a perfect tool to capture these images, Michiel. The distance also helps to stay a bit far away from those fumes.

    Here is a smoke break (the "regular variety") from the Hague.

    Re: Street (images)

    I am loving the X100 for street photography in Baltimore (and NYC). Previously, I have used Pentax K1000 film, Yashica Super Film, various small digital P&S cameras, Canon EOS 5D, Panasonic GF1, Sony NEX-3, and now the X100 for street work. Some older shop owners and street vendors from various ethnic backgrounds seem to give me a knowing grin seeing such a vintage looking small rangefinder style camera (maybe they grew up using something similar). In the inner city, I get much more flak/ pushback when using a SLR size camera for street work with strangers.

    Re: Street (images)

    Last weekend I spent with a bunch of friends in Paris, that's a real street walhalla and had lots of fun.

    Was able to test several lenses on my Nex 5 and had a blast

    First with my own Elmar 90/4:






    With a Voigtlander 12/5.6:






    CZ 24/1.8



    (Chance encounter with a Canon movie maker, not part of our group)

    And last but not least, my own kit 18-55




    I'll have some more with my A850 as well, but will post those later
    C&C welcome, I'm still learning "street".
