    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    2 weeks and no post here, that's no good so let's do something about that.
    I think there's too much attention going to the new Nex's and A77 threads, so time to show that the old 5's and 3's can still be used to have fun

    With a Leica M 35/2.8 "Templo do Debod" in Madrid:

    Wow, has it really been three months since I posted here?

    I've been so busy it seems like a short time but there are so many fantastic photos above that I just don't have time to comment individually. just the photos since my last post make an incredible set... well done everyone!

    The weekend after my last post I spent three days at Laguna Seca at the Monterey Historics(now called Rolex Reunion). I have only scratched the surface from that shoot -- I have ~2,600 photos left after culling the obvious technical duds and to date have only processed & uploaded 136 of them. Here are a few:























    α900+VG|F20|2xF58|16-35,24-70,135Z|STF|70-400G|50,85 1.4|16,20,28,100M,80-200APO f/2.8|28-135|500f/8|1x-3xMacro|2xMFC-1000|Tiltall+RRS, Bellows, etc.

    On Sept. 17 I was back at Laguna Seca for the running of the American LeMans, this time with my best and oldest friend (since highschool) David -- and found the booth babes quite willing to pose:

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    During the month of October I was engaged in the one-prime challenge the Pegelli mentioned, the prime I chose was a bit tough to work with though -- the Minolta 12.5 f/2 Micro Bellows lens. Here are some of the shots that I like the most from the month. As you can tell it was a struggle at times but it was really fun. Here is the setup:



    Common ant:


    .5mm mechanical pencil tip:




    Electric shaver:


    Random bug:


    Tip of an eyelash:


    Dreemel bit:

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Well had a project in New York to shoot the city for a couple days. left the big guns home and went with the Sony A77 with 16-50 and 55-200 lenses. This one ISO 200 handheld at F7 from the Top of the Rock. Actually using this one in a poster. Looks to be holding up well as a background image. I shot about 1200 images and have not even come close to getting through all of them except for fast processing but I'm getting to like this cam. My biggest bitch is this camera is far too easy to change something. I have to really watch myself as it is just to easy to change a setting by hitting something. Oh right at the 35mm setting on the 16-50. I found this lens to be very very good at almost any focal length.

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

    Nice one Guy. I agree, it's a really nice cam. The full frame 36 Mpx version due next year should also be a stunnner!

    Fantastic series Dave, took me back many years to my racing days in BC Canada and West Coast tracks, I could hear the thunder and smell the aroma from those shots. The days when mufflers were optional and one could get an unobstructed view of the track... thanks for the memories.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    I just purchased an SLT-A35 with 18-55 kit zoom a week ago and am liking it a lot! So small and lightweight for an SLR. The zoom has a fair amount of barrel distortion at some settings, and (astigmatism?) at macro range, but given the price (plus the fact that I'm too broke to buy another lens right now what with the NEX-7 + 24/1.8 still on order) I can't think of much to complain about save that the kit doesn't include the matching ALC-SH108 lens hood. Really a delightful package at a very reasonable price IMO. A35 uses the same NP-FW50 batteries and BC-VW1 charger as the NEX cameras too. Charge times are leisurely, so I keep multiple charged batteries on hand.

    Looks like you're already getting some pretty nice shots with your new rig, @4seasons. I look forward to seeing what you produce with more practice.

    Got myself a few holiday gifts... A CZ 85/1.4, an Acratech GV2 head, an Acratech leveling base, and a 77mm Kaesemann polarizer. Of course had to go and play with my new toys.

    Pano with the CZ 85 (4 shots)...



    A shot with the CZ 24-70...



    And the 24-70 with a B+W Kaesemann polarizer...

    Interesting abstract gilgameshist, I only might be tended to add the second knot fully in the picture.

    Congrats on the purchases Jan, they're in good hands from what I can see here.
    If you have more time you could do another top/bottom row with the first and sell your 24-70
    Just kidding, I especially like how the long exposure with the pola filter came out, the long light streaks are more pleasing to my eye than the short ones in the first WA shot.

    I have held both the 3 and the 5 and for my big hands the 5 (with the much larger bulge) was clearly the way to go.

    However if you plan to shoot a lot with short (ie < 35 mm) rangefinder lenses the better sensor of the C3 (especially in the corners) might overcome the ergonomic disadvantage. If you want both (new sensor and big bulge) 5N is the way to go, but more expensive. Just the step from 14 to 16 MP by itself is insignificant in my mind.

    I find the Nex an ideal camera to just walk around and take indoor shots without flash

    Here's two from our dear doggie during the Christmas days with the Nex 5 @ iso 1600 and a Summicron M50/2

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    When I come to the GetDPI Sony forum these days all I see is Nex 7, CZ24 and occasionally a Nex 5N topic in there.

    Fun with Sony and Fun with Nex (not the newest) seem to be mainly forgotten.
    C'mon guys, photography shouldn't only be about the newest gear but some older equipment can still deliver.

    Here's an example of some heritage Minolta glass on an A850. Looking forward to others pick up posting in here as well.

    A850 + Minolta O 20/2.8 in the Amsterdam Public Library:


    A850 + Minolta 80-200/2.8 HS G in Madrid:


    TFL, and hope to see more from others here as well.

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    The novelty of the NEX-7 for the happy few is almost over as they turn out to be in stock more and more even with the kitlens.
    So I might as well post in the general NEX thread, for a greater mix of people and NEX's.

    Here are a few at sundown in town. ( Amsterdam )

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    Michiel: Somewhat weird colors, particularly the last one, like it!

    And a splendid suggestion, to merge the different Nex picture threads, IMO.

    So, here one more with even weirder colors:


    "Story Tellers"


    Nex 5n, 16mm/2.8 @ f/5.0, ISO 1250


    Hope you like it and thanks for your interest.

    Thank you Amin and Hermann.

    That last one is a hall of an (luxurious) appartmentbuilding with changing colourlights behind milkglass. I didn't have to do anything for it.

    @ Hermann, nice picture. Is that an artprojekt Bei Anruf Story?

    Michiel: You "only" had to have an eye for it, but that's what photography is about, isn't it?

    The above picture is from Munich "Winter - Tollwood", a combination of christmas market and theatre festival. And there on the terrain a simple call box, no art project.



    One more from that series:


    "Burning Bush - St. Paul's"

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    18-200???!!! More Jono magic, but is this another new lens? I'm waiting the arrrival in a day or two of the Tamron 18-200mm.

    Good stuff too Hermann. Great colours, but I got confused when you said St Pauls

    I can't keep up with all the new great pics from everyone... All appreciated by me.

    I agree - great colours Hermann.
    As for the 18-200; I've had it for a while - I got it together with the 5n (which Silas has taken over) It's a fine lens (for what it is of course) - I hope the Tamron is as good. I think Sony put a lot of effort into this lens, as it's really designed to go with their E mount video cameras.

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    Last thursday I became grandfather for the first time in my life. Here are 3 pics of my grandson from the day he was born.
    Little late but I wanted the parents to agree on this. I told them that this is a very civilised forum

    It was dark already so these are shot at 3200 ISO and that is what I call a revelation.
