    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Water polo tourney over Thanksgiving. Sony a900, Sony 70-200/2.8G. Photos cropped because the longer lenses are not fast enough, and the 1.4x renders the photos a tad soft. Colors are pretty much out of the box. Thank you in advance for any and all likes.

    These wooden houses are actually part of a museum but there are still plenty of them in the country and they're really very cozy, warm and beautiful in a way. Lots of people still build them as a "summer" homes.

    I've noticed that a850 IBIS doesn't help much for the shutter speeds between 1/2 to 1/8 sec due to a shutter shake / mirror slap vibrations. Same story with the IBIS OFF on a tripod. MLU is the only remedy when you hit ISO limits.

    My experience with the A850 IBIS is that it is a statistical tool. It doesn't guarantee to remedy all camera shake blur, it just increases the probability you get a good picture.

    However also the further you are away from 1/focal length the statistical chance reduces. So for a WA like the 28 mm and 1/2 to 1/8 sec I would take 8-10 pictures and expect I may get 1 or 2 with an acceptable sharpness if I'm lucky. As you say the only guarantee to get sharp is a tripod and MLU (and IBIS off).

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    As discussed in the A7 thread I was in Amsterdam to attend the opening of Michiel Schierbeek's exhibition "Window Dressing" in PuntWG.
    However I used the opportunity to come a whole lot earlier and explore the area where I lived the first 6 years of my life. After that I walked around in the area where the exhibition was held. Weather and light were dreadful, but still I had a splendid day

    1: The pink Vespa (the building on the left is the primary school I attended > 50 yrs ago)


    2: "Our house" (at least until 1964, after that the new owners sacrificed the side garden to build an extension)


    3: The green door


    4: The Lutheran Community (Staringplein)


    5: Statue on the Nicolaas Beetsstraat


    6: Americain (Leidseplein)


    All NEX6 + E10-18/4

    I like the "heritage toning" of those images Barry, if you would make them slightly less sharp and contrasty they might just be scans from 100 year old photo's. Only the parked cars would be the give away then.

    Here's one from an appartment building overlooking Victoria Docks in East London

    Guess she knows better than the photographer. Sony a900, 70-200/2.8G, cropped and saturated a bit to bring out her lovely skin color and the color of the dress.

    That's a great scene Mikal

    When I'm walking in old French villages I'm always attracted to the most paintless and derelict doors.
    Here's two examples from Lalinde (Dordogne) in October last year.

    1: Double glazing


    2: The nicest curtain

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Peg, thank you. I have a few more but I decided that this one was the best. The park is a mile from our new home. On the weekends it is full of old Cubans fishing with a simple set up of fishing line and a hook, kayakers, and others. Unfortunately swimming is discouraged because a crocodile may be lurking in the mangroves.

    It is a great place to take pics. I will post more as I become more familiar with the setting and the people become more familiar with me.

    Very nice Pieter, I love the Dordogne The wife and I were seriously considering retiring there instead of Cornwall, it certainly has a lot less rain!
    I have driven through Lalinde at least a dozen times but only ever stopped there once briefly for a coffee...I should have paid more attention to the doors there
    Ditto...Always attracted to the ones with the least paint (It must be a photographers thing )
    These are just a few from my last visit to the Dordogne in 2013.
    Taken with either NEX-5N or NEX-6 cameras and Zeiss ZM 25mm Biogon or ZM 50mm Planar lenses...Cheers Barry

    Deering Park in Palmetto Bay, FL. Cropped and toned a bit. Sony a900 + 70-200/2.8G. Note that even though the rocks are wet and slippery, the young woman still must have her cell phone with her.

    Nice captures again Mikal, and for those smartphones, with our kids I have the idea that they grow roots in their hand. Ensuring a "no smartphone dinner" takes some convincing

    I have an upcoming flu and the weather was miserable, however still caught this back lighted flower in front of a north facing window. I know a lot of people don't like the kit lenses, but my copy that I got with my NEX5 some years ago is not bad at all

    How else you get more grey hair, Pieter?

    Have you tried extension tubes with the kit zoom (OSS and all), now there are very affordable ones out there?

    Not sure this works on the small screen, or at all for that matter. It does look better on my desktop than my laptop.

    New lighting was installed at the pool so I thought I would unleash the mighty ZA 135/1.8 on the no longer so mighty (but it is all I have) and creaky a900. Cropped a lot since it was shot from about 25 or more yards. Lightened up a small bit and I left the purple color in. I can't always shoot from where I want during practice and the competitions.

    Two shots taken with Chad's (Show Performance) old 35/2.0 A mount on the a900. Not really comfortable with the 35mm focal length considering I shoot with the 135/1.8 or 70-200/2.8 most of the time. The first shot is my son Ivan hanging out on the side of a small pier. The second is an unknown couple just hanging out. Yeah, I know I can do a bit more with the horizon in the second shot, but...... Both shot on the outside of the Deering Estate.

    A few from last night while I was sitting around. Mighty ZA 135/1.8, wheezy Sony a900. I thought I would try panning but instead I wound up with slow shutter speed. Figured out that I need a background for panning to show movement, after the fact. Duh.

    Thanks in advance for the likes.

    ^^ Especially like the first one, very dynamic.

    I went to the (mainly) deserted ghost town of Doel in the Antwerp harbour area.

    It has some pretty neat graffiti (among other interesting subjects)
    Here's a small sample:

    1: Kitty


    2: Birdy

    P, thank you. The first shot is of the coach's son. He was in the lane closest to where I was sitting on the pool deck. The coaches and swimmers don't mind me sitting on my butt next to the pool because they know I am taking pics. The kids like the pics, and the adults like them even more because I don't charge them.

    Malina, did you stop by Laurenzo's for a cup of coffee after the visit to the Italian Monastery? Had the best italian ices there years ago.

    Hey Mikal. No, didn't stop for a snack as I'm not very well familiar with the area, but will keep it in mind next time I'm near that place.

    Eye of the Crocodile:


    This photo is taken in Zurich Zoo with a small compact camera (Sony RX100 mk2). Obviously there was a glass in between. But since the camera was small, the photo was shot from a very close distance like 10-15 cm. The challenge was to make the glass perfectly clean and also keep the lens very close to the glass to avoid reflections. Flash is also disabled and aperture was set to 1.8 to have lower ISO in hand held shot.

    If you like the image, you have my permission to republish it but please add "Courtesy of PhotoAgainstPhoto" , should you want to post it somewhere else. Thanks in advance!
