    Please don't post full resolution image files. They choke up the performance of the GetDPI forum badly and dont image well anyway. 1024x1024 or so is as big as anyone needs in a web photo.

    thanks!

    How are you triggering the camera with the Gigapan? The old Sony remote cable doesn't work with the new "multiport" remote port on the a7(r)?

    Here's my first macro stack attempt, done using an A7R + Tokina AT-X 90mm f2.5 + newport linear stage. 80 exposures taken at 15µm intervals were stacked in Zerene. Two $1 led flashlights were used for lighting this 1960 Hong Kong dollar.


    Tokina AT-X 90mm f2.5

    And here's a 100% crop:

    I wonder why this file (4,912 × 7,360 JPEG) wasn't 'shrunk' to the site's maximum of 1,200 pixels ?

    The site software does shrink the file to the maximum of 1200 pixels wide, but only after it has read and delivered all the image data to the browser client and then reprocessed it by scaling. It doesn't actually change the image file at all, it can't in particular if you are linking to an image file stored on another web host.

    Godfrey, I'm sure you're right, but at least on my screen all large (>1,200 pixels) images are looking huge now. I like it !

    Mmm, perhaps I should be reseting my browser ...

    Kind regards.

    I agree, the huge files just bind this thread up, and take ages to load. It would be nice it it was removed, and resized.

    I was using the automated mechanical trigger arm that is positioned over the release button. I also program in a delay between shots to avoid any residual vibration from the previous shot. No problems so far with movement.

    Godfrey, you shot some sweet auto and motorcycle stuff with your old film Leicas, no? I think you posted some at my request a long while ago. It was great stuff.

    To heaten up your day i try to bring some "sharpness" (Schärfe in German is hot and sharp) in.
    It is REALLY hot and sharp as you can see at 100%, if you like

    Beautiful image!
    I love the 100mm APO-Macro Elmarit f2.8.
    I have been waiting for a sensor that could do justice to this wonderful optic.
    May I ask, which adapter are you using with this lens on the A7R?

    Stay warm!

    Nice composition of peppers Werner!

    Finally had a few moments to shoot some of my C/Y lenses with a black rubber ring in the adapter.
    No more reflections on the sensor till now, but this was without really much sunlight. Shot wide open. Crazy sharp lens but I knew that.

    Here too, grey grey grey and what else....
    Table tops are not boring but I think the firm white backlight does not always do justice to the objects.

    Actually I almost never read reviews anymore. One knows already so much about it on this and other forums that a review is mostly " musterd after diner " as we say
    I did read this one only globally

    Shooting at work today (not my main job description). Had both the GH3 and A7 w/55/1.8. Available light, handheld. Love how much I can use hamfisted post technique and get something that will work. GH3 worked, but I had less room to work with.

    1st in series of RF lenses w/A7...Zeiss 85/4 Tele-Tessar...images of vine structure on backyard fence...renders very fine detail...I hope transfer and reduction to JPEG keeps detail.

    Have to work this weekend still, but I'll be carrying the A7 and Summilux-R 50mm on this morning's walk.

    Some lovely photos, everyone.

    From recent snowstorm in NYC/Central Park. I must say, the A7 weather sealing was quite effective.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R


    Sony A7 + Summicron-R 90mm f/2
    ISO 100 @ f/2.8 @ 1/1250

    First shooting walk with the A7 today, fitted with either of the Summilux-R 50mm or Summicron-R 90mm lenses. The sensor is terrific, the camera a little odd and uneven in its design and implementation but it works well enough, the lenses ...

    OMIGOD ... I think my hunch was right! These lenses NEED a FF, high Mpixel sensor to do them justice, and when they have it the imaging qualities are just amazing. Just like they are on film when shooting with the Leicaflex SL.

    Very pleased. My goal in buying the camera has been realized.

    Now to learn some of the other details about this camera's disorganized, messy menu and control system. It's *almost* right at this point, but no thanks to Sony's interface design and engineering team. Anyone complaining about Olympus menus after using this should likely stick with point and shoots...

    Thanks for looking. Comments always appreciated.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    So many beautiful works on this thread … too many to acknowledge individually … just wonderful stuff!

    I'm pretty late to this party, but have a few to share from the A7R.

    Many of these were shot in available light I would not have considered possible before getting the camera, and a few are extreme crops.

    Various lenses used including the native FE35 and FE55, ZA24, and Leica Noctilux 50/0.95.

    The biggest question that I have is about the B&W shot … why is the guy putting a cigarette in the girl's ear?

    Nikkor P.C 85/f2 LTM. Nice weather for two days straight - for once in a long time didn't shoot anything wide open.

    Wow, enjoy the game next week Ashwin. That's great you're going! I unfortunately won't be heading up to the city anytime soon, but no doubt someone is bound to recognize and run into you during the week while you're "wandering around the streets". Why it's only a city of over 8 million people...everyone is always running into someone they know all the time, aren't they?....LOL!

    As for images in this thread....I echo what everyone has been saying....unbelievable imagery and way too many to simply call out by name, but it's been both informative and a blast going through this entire thread. Thanks everyone!

    Marc, to answer your question....isn't it obvious why he's putting the cigarette into her ear? Why, it's to light her fire! . Oh wait, if he was to do that, he'd have to turn around the cigarette, it's facing the wrong way!....never mind...LOL!

    Here's an excitable tree, in front of 40 Summicron on A7 @ f11. No sharpening. Even at f2 this lens covers the whole sensor without smearing or tinting. Best results of all my M lenses.

    Thanks Ashwin. I know this is the Sony section of the forum, but please tell me you're taking the GR too. Both sets you posted of the Seahawks games were awesome, and could be used by Ricoh marketing to sell more of their cameras.

    A7 with the Leica 50mm Summicron-R. There was a lot of distracting background around this Raven totem, so this is a cropped section of the most interesting feature, which was about 7-8 feet above me.
