    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Here's a shot that makes the Sony Rx1 special.
    After yummy pizza at Grimaldi's, walked down to the water below the Brooklyn Bridge.
    Saw this couple celebrating a Quinceañera and took this photo just after sunset.
    Iso 3200, 1/160 f/2.
    Enjoy.

    Thanks, appreciate it. Wish I had more time with the camera at the moment but work is manic so grabbing it when I can, hopefully though going to the Natural History Museum in London next week and also heading to Harry Potter World where the films were made in a few weeks, hopefully will be able to get some interesting shots.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    The lens does bold low light colourful scenes really well, but it is also capable in low light or low contrast scenes..the depth in that snowy scene looks very appealing, Shashin, thanks.

    Joe, your camera and pod look awfully lonely I don't know how you could be so cruel, lol. Some users don't like the threaded CR but I really like the retro mechanical device, esp if you have a smooth one like the Nikon or Pentax ones. Beautiful photo at the Brooklyn Bridge...

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Afternoon

    I hope everyone is well and enjoying their Easter break.

    I finally received my RX1 after waiting for ages for it to get to Iraq. Anyway, it's a great little camera, just getting to grips with it at the moment, learning what I can do in post and how it reacts to different situations.

    Here in Iraq I live on a pretty crappy camp in a crappy container, it's not much good for the kind of photography I normally like but when you have a new camera you'll take a picture of anything!

    There was a big storm yesterday, turned the sky black late evening, I quite like the b&w conversion, a lot of distortion in the uprights though, even with the lens correction.



    Late evening a guy comes round with a gas machine that pumps out kerosene fumes to keep the mosquitos out, I quite like this.



    All in all, I'm impressed with the way the noise cleans up in LR and I really like the weight and solid feel. This should work really well as a travel camera against the Alpa for landscapes when i'm home.

    Cheers

    Mat

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Shooting with RX1 in Chinatown San Francisco, Easter Sunday. Aiming for fast street shooting technique, went with a Leica Optical finder I own. Focus set either to Multi-Point or Manual choosing hyperfocal distance. Exposure either Program or Manual and Auto ISO with shutter speed and F/stop set to gain focus on moving subjects.

    All in all the approach worked well. Next to no reaction to camera, in the best way.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Afternoon

    Today saw my first real play with the RX1, out visiting a site we are clearing at the moment. In most cases I'm shooting through the bullet proof glass of my armoured vehicle, this lends a strange tint to the images that I personally quite like! I also really like how the RX1 handles these environmental portrait type shots.

    Anyway, here are a couple.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Mir, when you say "clearing a field," I assume you are not talking about bunny rabbits. The worst thing I can step on in my neighborhood is what the cows leave behind. Take care.

    Love the first portrait.

    Thanks Shashin, no bunnies I'm afraid, I don't think they'd last long! We're always careful, the stuff we clear is often the easy part.

    MJR,
    Enjoying your imagery. Love the storm shot with the housing quarters, ditto the oil rig shot. And love the tint of the windows! Shoot a white sheet or paper through the window and share the CT with us if you'd like.

    Lots of cool shots everyone. Nice to see the variety.
    Starting to get more comfortable using the Rx1 on shoots.
    Here are a few from yesterday - all in natural light.

    Afternoon

    Thanks for the likes and comments, much appreciated! I will shoot some white paper through the window, no worries.

    I've been having a play with the files for conversion to B&W, I really like what I see, my style obviously but they seem to stand up really well to quite heavy, high key processing.

    Really enjoying your photos Mat.
    Couple of questions.
    Is the Rx1 tough enough for field conditions in Iraq?
    What camera did you use before?
    Thanks.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    had a quick weekend in Libya so grabbed the RX1 for the job. Love it. I'll post people pics later, but the thing works great as a street camera in a place where you can get shot for taking a pic. love carrying 3 batteries/charger and that's about it. so much lighter than 2 D4's 24-70, 70-200 i usually pack. I need images to publish, and the files will do. (these are small web jpegs here)

    Well done fultonpics. Many wonderful images and the lovely deep blue sky looks familiar. My Rx1 gives me some of the most beautiful blue skies I've ever seen from a camera. Just one if its many talents.

    thks Joe

    no filters needed for the dark blue skies! i really enjoy using the back screen for shooting--it makes the camera look totally like an amateur point and shoot. less questions from militia and not offensive to general public in crowded Medina areas. also pro DLSR can lead to police demanding to see your photo shooting documents--which is a pain to get in some places.

    Agree, using the back screen makes the Rx1 look like a somewhat oversized point and shoot camera. When I want to be taken seriously I just slap on the EVF. Works every time.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    The back screen with the grid makes the RX-1 a spy's tech camera. When I want to be serious, I focus with a loupe.

    Joe, Hawaiian mods? Was this a shoot or are the Who and the Jam coming back into fashion? It is like the set of Quadrophenia.

    Shashin, this shoot was for an upcoming bike rally featuring a couple of British groups. Surprisingly, Hawaii has a little of everything including mods.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    I agree with you all, for me, I've been missing the real quality of a dslr in something I want to carry in Iraq or Afghanistan. For many years I've carried a full canon kit through Darfur, Chad, Syria and all those sorts of places, every airport or border is a hassle and a risk, that's before I start taking shots in dodgy places, the RX1 could be a revolution for my needs.

    I've been using a Panasonic GF1 for the last couple of years, looking through Lightroom now, I have hardly any GF1 shots over 400 ISO that I like, the RX1 is hugely better in this respect.

    The other thing I've noticed is the punch from the RX1 files, for example, this is a shot from Afghanistan a couple of months ago with the GF1...



    I love this shot, it tells a real story to me having been there but it is very difficult to get it looking how my mind sees it, where as the files I've taken over the last couple of days have a real depth to them that I've not seen from the GF1. So much so, I'm almost looking forward to going back to Kabul just so I can take shots with the RX1. Almost!

    As for the camera being tough enough, my body armour covers the vital organs but doesn't come low enough in my opinion! I'd be happy to have the RX1 on a longer strap so it covers the "family Jewels" I suspect it's easily as bullet proof as the vest!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    yep, is an amazing walk around camera, but I question the strategy of using it to protect the 'family jewels'. getting through airports is a breeze, they don't even look at it. in Nov, i got a tour of the 'special' security room at the Frankfurt airport when i brought my D4's through--chemical tests, taking apart the pocket wizards, etc. 20 mins of my life lost forever. then there is the challenge of taking a tripod internationally--guaranteed to snag you somewhere. i just took a little manfrotto pocket tripod this time. oh the new pocket wizards seem to work fine with the rx1. so i may try packing a q flash next time (in the check in stuff)

    btw, it was freezing in London on Wednesday. happy to be back in california. the rx1 excels at taking pics of people with guns!

    Love all the pics, everyone. Joe, the first image with the guy in sunglasses and 2 girls is great.

    Mat, I keep on enjoying your work. BTW, figured out when shooting out your bullet-proof car window it's the tint plus the grad effect- lighter on top, darker on bottom. Talking about looking for more punch in RX1 files- it's 3 things to me- one is how we handle the image in post, of course. Second is avoiding flare- the Zeiss coating is great but flare will still hit the image if you don't protect the lens. The third is shooting at F/8 or there abouts- that's when that 3D quality really takes over, I've noticed it shooting buildings in San Francisco.

    Sir Fultonpics, very nice- crisp and interesting.

    I've been starting to help my 16 year old daughter get into photography, it makes one think. So much is about access. My daughter can take amazing photos of teens that I never could, as she's part of that world. If you're part of the scene your shooting, it's a whole different look and feel so much of the time.
