    Re: Fun with GX9

    Zenit und Leica together are making cameras!
    If they are so good like my 55 years old Zorky & Zenith ;-)



    For Zorky you got a filmmagazin for 5m film ... 139 pictures instead 36 pictures
    Zenit had a mirror which jumped/folded up when you made a photo, then it was dark in
    viewer. You had to move to next film picture, then mirror was pulled down on a STRING
    Both had changeable lenses - some of them are used even today.



    I monted Canon mount and use it with different adapters for Sony, Samsung, Pana .. and Canon



    A picture - out of camera- with GX9 + Zenitar 16/2.8

    GX9 with tilt adapter

    Macro lenses (45mm...180mm) have small viewing angle, so I use Non-Laowa 5mm/4,
    identical to Laowa, but without shift funktion - price less than 200, Laowa more than 600.
    Same lens with 12elements/9groups.

    With 15mm/4 and macro 1:1 you get wider view with sharp backgrounds. For sharp center and
    unsharp surroundings I use a cheap tilt adapter (EOS-mFT), you can move lens in all directions (360)

    15mm/4 macro 1:1

    Nocticron f1.2.42.5mm. But i think you could get a similar portrait with the panny f1.7 42.5mm or Oly 45 f1.8

    Similar, possibly, but not the same. The lens really show its class here.

    Well this is sure a magical lens, but the most important thing here is moment and light, though the extra stop bokeh helps in this case.

    Same lens Ricardo.

    That bokeh does add depth.



    Sorry about the noise. About 6,000 ASA. But the guy likes the shot.

    Shot RAW.

    I am puzzled by people who turn it off.

    Some workflows use jpeg, particularly if you have a canera with a good Joey engine.

    So on your shot- I think I see some noise that could clear up further if you have the Raws.

    Re: Fun with GX9

    Agreed Ricardo,

    But is it not always a compromise? Noise v detail.

    When I do amdram I tend to think the actors like a slightly grainy effect when rehearsing. A bit like the old jazz club shots of Peterson, Gillespie and that ilk.

    Maybe that particular shot suffers more from being a bit too light - mea culpa, too rushed.

    For their stage stuff I clean it up a bit more. Here is the show:-

    Re: Fun with GX9

    With most of the photos I take, and many that I see in this thread, particularly those taken by Ricardo, I see "noise" or grain as a feature more than a defect. The noise in modern imaging sensor has come long way towards emulating film grain, and for many kinds of photography, I see that as an integrated element of an image. Not only does noise reduction often remove that "grain effect" and some detail, but it also removes the perceived detail that is often a result of noise or grain, particularly in b&w photos.

    Digital noise has a long way to go before it raises to the level of Tri-X grain, and will possibly never get there, but it's getting better, and I have decided to enjoy it rather fight it, which is also one of the reasons why I mostly prefer a 4/3 sensor rather than a clinically noise free full frame one.

    I understand that fashion, food and landscape photographers see this differently, but it's important to be aware of the different neds of different photographers when discussing this.

    Hey, first happy new year and sorry I am replying now!

    So I agree in some degree with noise- but I think it can go well or less well depending on the shot. I think in this case the one you were showing could benefit from a modicum of noise cleanup, so that's why I was asking.

    Totally agree with you. I think often the grain/noise can give a certain sensuality and perception of detail. I agree. I think like you said it depends on the shot.-
