    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    The following post needs a little story:

    A couple of weeks ago i bought a Leica R Bellows at the Bay. I wanted to get closer on occasional macros with my Leica R Elmarit’s (60 and Apo-Macro 100). The Bellows was 150 € and it is , typical Leica, a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.

    Some days later i helped my wife to clean up the garden for spring and summer: I found a scallop shell (Coquille Saint-Jacques) between the plants. I remembered, a year ago we had Saint-Jaques for dinner and my wife kept some of the shells and put them in the garden for decoration.
    Next to photographing, cooking (and wine) is my other passion and i share it well with my wife.

    Thought the shell will be a nice object to try out the new bellows. On my desk i was not satisfied what i saw in the EVF, not enough DOF at all. I decided to try my very first focus-stacking to get the whole shell in focus.

    The manual of the bellows said with the 100 lens and F5.6 DOF is about 1.7 mm with a magnification of ca. 1.5. The height of the shell is about 2.5 cm from the lowest part (lower left and right) to the highest in the lower middle of the shell. Took 12 shots and processed them in Photoshop CC.

    We will make this dish soon in France, thanks Werner. Are the scallops shortly baked, they look a bit raw. And what is the red powder, paprika or chili?
    We turn this site into a cooking club soon

    Michiel, the scallops are only marinated (raw - i only use RAW )they where frseh out of the shell. The red powder is the coraille of the Saint-Jacques roasted and finely grounded mixed with a little Espelette.

    The shell photograph is excellent. Nicely done!
    I'll have to read up on focus stacking ... I haven't used that technique.

    Sony A7 - Amateur hour architecture photos:

    Just playing around with my toys. Not getting paid for this. I just did it on a lark because I have to look at the lobby monitor all day long. No distortion corrections, just a bit of over-processing to grab attention on an HDTV in the lobby.

    This first one was taken with a Summicron 50 R on the A7, I believe it was F8 at iso 50, processed from the raw file.
    .
    .
    .
    .


    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .


    All the rest are with the Rokinon 14mm at F16, iso 50.

    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    These two were 30 second exposures, F16 but I used a hand held flashlight to paint the trees, flowers and some of the sidewalk.


    .
    .
    .

    .

    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .

    This last one was a bit of a "Hail Mary" shot. I switched into jpeg only mode to use the Auto ISO multi shot noise reduction. The reason I did this was because my tripod would not reach the height or position that I wanted. I wound up with my hands stretched over my head as high as I could reach. The exposures wound up being 1/7th of a second each. The end result is only good enough for HDTV size due to the smearing. I had already dropped down to F5.6 to try to improve the chance of success. I would say that it just barely works for the intended use.

    Hi Godfrey,

    A day mark (or day marker) is used as an aid to navigation for sailors (sail or power). They're used to mark channel locations. Day markers are permanently installed, like this one, and you'll also see channel markers on the water that are anchored to the ocean/lake/river bottom and float. The green floating versions are known as 'cans' and the red ones are 'nuns'. If a sailor is entering a smaller body of water from a larger one, red markers need to be kept to on the boat's starboard side (right) and green to port (left). The colors of these markers are purposely 'startling' in order to get the attention of the sailor navigating a channel, because going outside of the channel can run you aground.

    -Doug

    Ah, thanks! I suspected it might be something like that, but I couldn't get the context from the photo or the words "day mark" ... Dense today, I think. Or distracted. ;-)

    That sounds like a great trip, although a bit breezy! My Dad lives on Great Island in Harpswell. Sailing through lobster pots can be a challenge, huh? Hope you didn't have any issues getting tangled up in any pot warp.

    Super Michiel, you really have the lens disease!!

    Thats my second attempt wich focus stacking: Brought my (pretty fast) Mac almost to it's limits. 60 (yes, sixty! in PS the layer-file had almost 5 gig's ) shots, well i overdid a lot....in the oof areas there are some artifacts but the center seems quite nice, sharp from the top to the ground. But less (calculated) shot is much better.

    Werner...Is that an aphid I see inside of the rose to the left?...It was very obliging to keep still for a 60 frame stack shot...I can't get them to keep still for anything more than 30 shots! :-) :-) :-)

    Joking aside 2 great shots guys....Cheers Barry
    Yes it is, maybe sleeping.
    Serious: When stacking only one or two shots in focus are used for the final image on that spot

    Hi Werner,
    What I found interesting was that the "Original" sized shot on Flickr ends up being greater in MP's than the A7R, which implies some kind of interpolation is going on.
    I'm assuming that you didn't stack and stitch...That really would over stretch any laptops processor.
    Both the close-up of the "Scallop shell" and the "Yellow rose" are very well executed - I like them both.
    Cheers Barry

    Barry: No stiching only stacking. But when you stack, during taking the pic, you are moving either the whole cam and bellows or only the bellows to alter the sharpness, then you alter the magnification as well. The image is being enlarged and the size differed in all shots.

    In PS, when you stack, you first align the layers regarding to their content (PS is doing that) in this step the image area is being enlarged (some sort of pseudo stiching). The second step is the real stacking and rendering (blending) of the final image where only sharp (high contrast) areas of each single image is used for the final result.

    I still have to learn a lot with this, in the rose shot i used way to many shots, in the shell shot i calculated the amount of shots by the DOF of the lens and the size of the shell.
    In the rose shot you can see, that stacking works only good in areas with high contrast (the center of the rose) the bokeh areas with low to none contrast are problematic. The shell was much better as an object than the rose because there is contrast everywhere in the pic.
    There is some special software around for stacking, probably better than PS...but i don't want to overdo this and use it only occasional....

    My best regards

    Many thanks Werner for explaining it in detail, I can now see that stacking images is more complex than I first thought, because of the changes in magnification as you refocus each time.

    Some more great images N S Ng,
    The black and white image and ladder reminded me of Sebastio Salgado and the Brazilian gold miners.
    Keep them coming.
