    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Afternoon

    Had a bad sand storm over here for a few days, rubbish for photography!

    Anyway, today i managed to grab this quick shot, the guy who delivers water in the most knackered truck you've ever seen, this really isn't a great shot but what I'm loving is how the RX1 renders the oof areas, it's seriously good to my eye.

    Anyway, here you go..

    I don't know the photographers or the equipment but the photos in this article are some of the best candid shots I have seen in a long time and they certainly tell a story within the story.

    Very nice John!
    I'm new to the RX1 and always looking for improvement. I'm curious about what Raw Fine Tuning adjustments you've made to the Apple Camera Default import preset? Thanks.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Anyone interested in reading more about the RX1 there are good articles by Steve Huff and Tim Ashley, both very informative.

    I also enjoyed this article about the Leica 35/1.4 FLE by Tim, in which he uses the RX1 as a comparison lens for a few images - very interesting outcomes, maybe not one that users of the FLE would much enjoy.

    Tim Ashley Photography | Leica M 240 with 35mm F1.4 FLE - some observations

    barjohn, I caught something similar and had the same response:

    mat, I think the RX1 has drop dead gorgeous bokeh and focus fade character. And much more besides. great shot of the happy water truck guy.

    Hi all, a few pics from the Harry Potter Studio set, will post more when I get a chance. One thing I learned trying to take pictures whilst being dragged around by my family is I must get a viewfinder, with the lighting conditions and how busy it was impossible to frame shots and judge focus properly.

    Some shots with my Sony RX1. Sure it has a few issues but overall the camera is easy to carry and a joy to use. The image quality is outstanding! Personally it was worth every penny and probably the best purchase I have ever made in camera gear. Now I understand the saying "you get what you pay for!" Love my Sony RX1

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    OK, the JB Camera Design grips are officially out. I've been testing one on the RX1 and love it. Also available for the X100(s) and coming out for the XE1, X10 and X20. Peruvian walnut.
    Batteries can be changed without removing the grip. $79.95.
    It's a different approach to holding the camera and does work well for me. Extra grip is obtained with the pinky or 4th finger.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but if I ever decide to completely destroy the aesthetics of my RX-1 by slapping a lump of (albeit nicely finished) wood on the bottom of it then take me out and put me down.

    Just my opinion and each to his own.

    All depends if you look at it or shoot with it. I shoot a lot hand-held, and the functionality is fantastic. Yes, to each his own!

    Thanks, John. This one was a little easier. I just had to cross the road in front of my house. While, blue skies are nice to have, and we don't have many, it is the changing weather that makes things special.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    That wooden base is the most bizarre thing I have yet encountered in small cameradom, in which I always had been led to believe the very qualities of small size and light weight were the whole point. It tops the Blad Lunar. Is the idea to use it as a protective device, swung against an assailant perhaps, as it would hurt? I guess you can walk into a pub and plonk your camera down on the bar...with a resounding thud.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Very interesting to read these reactions to the walnut base, which I'm loving to use!
    If you shoot primarily on tripod you don't need it, though it also doesn't get in the way. If you primarily carry the camera on a neck strap and work slowly, it's not as valuable, though still very useful in balancing the camera when you actually shoot.
    But if you walk and hold the camera in your hand with a hand strap and capture fleeting moments, as I do, the walnut base adds minimal weight and volume while adding a much better balance and hold of the camera. I work quickly often and thus like to have the camera in-hand. In that scenario the grip is by far the best solution I've found- much better balance and secure grip while adding minimal volume and weight. To each their own, whatever works for you is what you'll love.

    I remember once being admonished in a Leica forum for pointing out that the reason why I didn't worry about someone wanting to steal my Leica M8 was that it was chunky enough to make a very effective dent in someone trying to take it off me against my wishes...

    Yat,

    Is this a mutli-image pano, RX1 jpeg in-camera pano, or a single file cropped as a pano? I really like the image so it doesn't matter too much how it was achieved - just curious.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Not a particularly interesting image, but one I seriously under-exposed. I was surprised how much data could be recovered however - the RX1 seems to pack plenty of info into the files (memo to self: Don't delete shots as hastily as I once might have)

    Is the RX-1 worth it?

    Is the RX-1 worth it?

    Yes - because it actually captures sky and cloud detail - the dynamic range is awesome:



    Yes - because the f2 Zeiss 35mm lens is a really, really good lens at f2.0:



    Yes - because the ability to capture detail is awesome:

    Had not much time to test, but so far i agree: Yes!

    Very good DR.
    Lots of detail (almost on par with the Merrills).
    Fantastic low ISO.
    Nice feeling and good handling.....

    Two shots - the first in a Maine museum, taken through a case at 6400 ISO. Rather sweet. The second at 3200 ISO, f8.

    Thank you for the info. A 4 shot stitch should give you plenty of resolution for a large print if desired. I have seen a 40"x60" print from a single RX1 file that was quite stunning.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Please forgive my remark about the wooden base, an attempt at humour, it simply looked incongruous to me at first blush. There is no doubt the camera benefits from more hand affordance and it's not like the weight is too high ;-) I am sure it will work fine...and we are lucky to have so many aftermarket options so early in the product's life.

    What will they do next?

    As it is fascinating watching the full strength of the camera work its way into the collective knowledge base of (let's say) the community of serious camera users.

    It's a strange thought that this might be just the start for Sony in this market niche. A high level of acceptance of such a high end camera will help their overall camera business significantly - people will know what they are capable of.

    I looked a bit deeper into the lens, it's an 8/7 elements/groups with 3 asph elements featuring 5 asph surfaces on them. That's a lot of correction and it shows in the corners especially, and in the consistency across the aperture range. Zeiss produced exactly what you want in a single lens 35mm camera, which has to be all things to its diverse users. Even its flaws are tiny quibbles.

    There are not too many great 35mm lenses across all FF lineups..this is one of them.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Philip,
    Re: the wooden base, when it was mailed to me I was quite surprised there was no vertical grip component. I thought that was the whole point! But upon testing for a few days I was delighted with the actual functionality of the RX1 and grip in use. It just works, at least for me!

    re: the lens, I love it, of course! Except I really do wish it didn't have that barrel distortion in it. I assume it was unavoidable to achieve other design considerations. I shoot RAW and work usually in Aperture, so no lens correction there. As the JPEG loads from the RAW, the preview JPEG shows first. When the RAW JPEG pops in, it's always a disappointment to see that barrel distortion show up. Often not obvious, but always better gone. I realize I can process in Capture One, LightRoom, or make the correction in PhotoShop. But I do wish the barrel distortion wasn't there at all.

    What will they do next?

    As it is fascinating watching the full strength of the camera work its way into the collective knowledge base of (let's say) the community of serious camera users.

    It's a strange thought that this might be just the start for Sony in this market niche. A high level of acceptance of such a high end camera will help their overall camera business significantly - people will know what they are capable of.

    I looked a bit deeper into the lens, it's an 8/7 elements/groups with 3 asph elements featuring 5 asph surfaces on them. That's a lot of correction and it shows in the corners especially, and in the consistency across the aperture range. Zeiss produced exactly what you want in a single lens 35mm camera, which has to be all things to its diverse users. Even its flaws are tiny quibbles.

    There are not too many great 35mm lenses across all FF lineups..this is one of them.

    PTLens is a lens correction plugin for Aperture that has a profile for the RX1. I use it on the few occasions that really need a fix and it works well.

    This is one of the reasons I have never seriously thought of Sony as a DSLR solution - no really high end 35mm lens. Yes, there is the 35/1.4G but that seems overpriced and not that great a performer. I don't know if Zeiss are limited by their contract with Sony not to release their manual glass in Sony mount but I wish they would. That way I would seriously consider an A99. As it is this is the only way to get a premium 35mm on a full frame Sony camera which seems a bit weird from a marketing point of view.

    Need more time to experiment and getting accustomed to the RX1.
    Used the LR5 beta for this image. Perspective corrected with the new LR5 tool - works very good, no need to go to CS for corrections like that:

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    The backroads of Bethnal Green.

    My main schtick is urban landscape - especially the grittier side of London. I've been searching for the 'ultimate' urban landscape camera since selling my M8 and associated lenses back last year. That was a great piece of kit but aged and temperamental. Since then I have used a SWC and other 500CM to good effect but in turn it has taken a toll on my spine which is soon to enter its sixth decade of service. So far the results with the RX-1 have been very promissing. The lens is an absolute gem - even if somewhat prone to barrel distortion and a bit of fringing. (Actually, at f2 the lens is freakin' amazing but these pictures were all shot at f8 or thereabouts).

    What I like so far is that pretty much what I see in the finder in terms of colour is what I get out of LR. In fact none of these captures seemed to me to need any processing about from a little recovery of highlights and some correction of the lens distortion in LR. The colours are just my kind of colours. I like my urban landscapes to be tending towards the surreal - which I normally obtain by boosting them in LAB space in CS. No need here.
