    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    My first out-going with A7R + TSE24II









    I don't know my impression yet, the weather is very hot and i was sweating, dusty, i don't have a plate for this to put on tripod, and i forgot that standard Manfrotto cameras plate so i was carrying the Manfrotto tripod pointless, all these are handheld.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Hi everyone,

    I never thought I would buy a digital 35mm camera until this A7R came to market! Purchased it a month ago with a Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5 lens. My wife and I are really enjoying this combo

    The following shots were taken with a Canon 50mm f/0.95 which I borrowed from a friend for couple of weeks.

    Does anyone know if the Zeiss 28mm f2.8 in C/Y mount is the same optical formula as the Zeiss ZM 28mm f2.8 lens? If so, that may be why Elizabeth is soft (no silly, not from jumping when I clicked on pic)...but the ZM version of that lens does have somewhat soft corners when shot at the wider apertures.
    I can't imagine that it would be the same optical formula. It has to mount on an ~45mm flange to image plane register for the Contax/Yashica SLRs vs ~28mm for the RF mount register, and it's a Distagon design vs a Biogon design.

    @Louis: Many thanks...

    @Tareq: Very nice shots. I am using that combo as well and think it works exceptional good. Using it handheld a lot , with and without movements (works better than with the 5DMKII)

    @Aryan: Beautiful portraits. You won't regret the A7 R

    Werner, I have just acquired the last version Elmarit 90/2.8 - or the 'poor-man's APO 90' as I like to call it

    Very sharp but does not have the 'glow' of the 90/2.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Aryan,

    I've always loved your RZ portraits, and am interested in what you'll do with the A7r.
    I too, purchased one (A7) and sold my RZ, but only to get an Ebony 4x5
    The Sony A7/r's have this kind of "aura" in which I want to pick it up and go shoot. It motivates to be more artistic and explore many different lenses. Something my MFD's and Leica S never did for me

    The Summicron-R 90mm f/2 is a wonderful lens for the A7. I love the way it renders.

    Pretzel anyone. LOL

    Did a big food shoot yesterday, just a quicky here. Shot with the A7r Sigma 35mm at F9 and did four focus stack shots than blended in Helicon focus and in C1 corrected the keystoning as well. Lens is sharp sharp sharp

    I was after the more of a restaurant bar feel to the images.

    BTW shot these tethered with a hot folder to C1. Works a charm too

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Tim, I really enjoy this type of photo - the kind that make you think about what you are seeing. I can't help but try to figure out each person's perspective. You have the person laying in the only patch of sand as if about to do a snow angel or simply passed out. Then you have a person painting the landscape (I assume) which is reinforced by the painting laying face up near the wall. And finally you have what appears to be the shadow of a person above at the railing (not you based on the shadow angles) probably doing the same thing I am doing as an observer of this photograph.

    Another one of my sculptures I recently photographed at an art collector's house.

    Godfrey, you're exactly right! Earlier today when out shooting and completely away from a computer, it dawned on me that one might be a Distagon and the other is of course a Biogon..and wanted to come back and add to my original comments. Thanks for the info!

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Happy Easter Everyone

    Wanted to add a few more food shots . These again where with the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art lens. Both images around F9 and both with 4 focused stack shots. On the A7r tethered via C1 with hot folder I can shoot and see immediate effects but more important and the biggest reason I bought the Sonys was focus peaking. In this situation its the best there is as I can see where my focus points are take that frame than focus out 2 or 3 more times until I get in this case to the end of the food and build a nice very detailed image from the front of the product to the end of the product. Want to make this clear yes I am adding DOF but more important I am adding critical focus points along the way so in effect it is DOF but it really is not but expanding the critical focus from the front to back. DOF would not be this critically sharp. This is a very important and valuable technique in many situations. Here its so easy to do this as I am bolted completely down and nothing is moving in the image. This is IMHO a little better than having Tilt as you can see the effect a little easier and be a little faster in the process. Now love to have a tilt lens but this is a extremely good cheat to accomplish that depth of critical focus. So this is your Easter Tip of the day. I use Helicon Focus to do the blending. BTW I also corrected in C1 the keystoning than applied that setting to all of the same focus stack images before using Helicon to blend

    Take a look at there website for more data on this. I was going to do a front page article on this technique but did the camera instead. IMHO this process could not be more financially sound as all your buying is software. So if you don't have a T/S lens this is a excellent way around it.

    Ribeye Steak. Hmmm good too

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Okay another excellent use of focus stacking. Here I did three shots with my Zeiss 25mm F2 and as you can see at F8 I think it was from the front to back in critical focus. No lighting added here.

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Lastly to this series as I know folks love to see what this very inexpensive Rokinion 14mm can do and more important how the distortion correction really does a nice job of getting the image back to a normal perspective. For less than 400 dollars its a bargain in the correct hands. This was a 6 second exposure and I popped off two flash pops in different directions on my Sony flash to add some light. No focus stacking but I think F11. Tremendous DOF with this lens but you need to take care on focusing it as the focusing is very funky on this lens. Focus peaking works a charm here. And Yes i do not miss my Nikon for one split second with this focus peaking. My old eyes are lasers now , well sort of. LOL



    Hopefully the food shots get you excited for a great meal today with your family and friends. Im cooking Chicago Dogs and Burgers. LOL
