    Re: NEX & flowers

    Great stuff, Hot, are these all with the 18-55mm? I just bought the NEX5 with the 16mm and the battery is charging. I'll pick up the 18-55 next week (no dual lens kits here in Canada yet).

    Cheers,

    Re: NEX & flowers

    Just starting to play with mine now... For curiosity's sake, what mode did you use for these shots, iAuto? Or perhaps the Macro Scene mode?

    I'm using (for 98.5%) only "A", never iAuto - also most AWB, never scene modes

    Re: NEX & flowers

    Do you have a never ending variety of flowers in bloom in your garden? Amazing.

    Yep, we have most of the same, but many are already done and some are still to come. Our strange weather this year in western NC has brought us a Fallish look to our gardens earlier than usual but very Summery (back around 100 today) temps. What a coup that you have these all in bloom at same time. I'm black eyed susan to death, lots of water lilies, some straggly purple cone flowers and that double one you have---all teh day lilies are done blooming and the berries all eaten so its crape myrtle trees in fulll bloom and lots of yellow LOL. OUr golden rod in garden hasn't bloomed yet nor our Japanese Anemones and yours look in full bloom. Lovely garden blooms--must be a temperate climate. Boo on this 100+ stuff this year LOL.


    But to bring it back to the NEX--these are lovely, and esp knowing its with kit lens Very tempting.

    Re: NEX & flowers

    Hot, enjoy your photos a lot. A bit OT. you mentioned a biotop and I didn't know what it was so googled. I'd love to see some photos of it. This is relatively new to the US. Wish we had known when we put in our pond and then our pool. They overlook each other but we don't have the natural filtering that you have. Wonderful.

    No wonder the cat visits from afar. All kinds of wildlife for it to hunt--plus such a nice place to sleep in the sun.

    To bring it back to the NEX. I'm really impressed by this litte camera. Just don't want to consider adding yet another new system-yet. I'll keep checking this thread.

    Re: NEX & flowers

    It will be interesting to see how Panasonic answers these ISO 6400 shots with new releases at Photokina. Which lens for this last batch (image stabilized?)

    Re: NEX & flowers

    Has anyone determined whether the high ISO NR settings affect RAW?

    Douglas,
    Has Iliah played around with the files like he did for the A900 and other Sony cameras?

    Sorry Hot for going slightly OT.

    These pictures with "standard" 18-55 mm

    Now let's wait/look for Lumix GH2 and SONY's

    A55 16MP 10FPS EVF-1.44M AVCHD full HD
    A33 14MP 7FPS EVF-1.44M AVCHD full HD
    A560 14MP 7FPS MF recording AVCHD full HD
    A580 16MP 7FPS MF recording AVCHD full HD

    Hot
    These are fantastic, and what a garden!
    That lens really is an eye opener isn't it. And the ludicrous high ISO makes it really useable too.
    I'm loving mine, just wish I had more free time to play with it right now.

    Just this guy you know

    I'm not sure, but RPP does support NEX, so I guess he has used them at least a little bit to make the color transforms. Hardloaf (Andrey) would be the guy to ask.

    just from looking at the high iso files in RPP i would say no. aperture definitely is automatically doing something about the chroma noise (and i'm totally ok with it) but it there doesn't seem to be any obvious luminance noise reduction.

    The page is just filled with stunning colors ! The lens is certainly acquitting itself well, considering it is just a humble "kit lens".
    A900 with a few lenses, flashes etc.

    Re: NEX & flowers

    A good lens must not be expensive, some people believe only expensive lenses are good. My last pictures above are made with Canon 50mm/1.8 II, price ~ € 90 (incl. 20% VAT)
    Kit lenses for Canon or NEX ... additional price ~ € 100 also make fantastic pictures.

    My three (manual) Korean Samyangs - all three fitting Canon 550D, Lumix GH1, NEX5 - have very low prices, but excellent quality.

    Re: NEX & flowers

    With little skill and some exercise you can make really good 3D pictures (1920x1080) and 3D panoramas with NEX + movement.

    Select 3D + size 1920x1080 ... that's all. Then make slow moving a 3D pano.

    Nice to look at a Zalman 3D monitor (1680x1050 or 1920x1080) with €1-pol-glasses

    Re: NEX & flowers

    For making 3D pictures you even need a tripod. Use NEX (or ANY OTHER camera), make a picture, move camera (freehand) for eye distance to right, make second picture ... reeeeady!

    (free) StereoPhotoMaker turns/rotates .. both picture for a 1a 3D photo, looking
    with every 3D monitor/projector/TV, pol glasses or red/blue glasses and so on.

    Re: NEX & flowers

    This 3D pictures are flowers in my garden, all taken FREEHAND with NEX5 + 18-55mm,
    you can use ANY other camera, even HelloKittyCam.

    Make a picture, move some cm (eye distance) to right and make a second picture.
    Then load both pictures into StereoPhotoMaker and autoadjust them. Ready.

    You can look them on 3D monitor/projector/TV with active or passive pol glasses, red/green glasses and so on.

    StereoPhotoMaker german/english included ----> http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/

    LL = left picture, adjusted
    RR = right picture, adjusted
