    Thanks for the compliment woodmancy, philber, and ustein. It's the sharpest picture I've taken. :P

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    I like how the structure and the tonality go together, Uwe.
    Maybe a bit more contrast would give the picture more depth ? (but would decrease the tonality... )

    I wanted a bit of softness. I know a hard balance.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    I was in Salt Lake City this week, and had a few extra minutes at lunch, so took a quick walk through Temple Square.

    I know some folks have had bad experiences with the Sony E 16/2.8, but I was pleasantly surprised with how it handled these scenes for me.

    There is a slight hint of magenta cast in the corners, but it's barely noticable, and no need to bother with Corner Fix for my style of shooting.

    The lens held detail very nicely. There is some CA in the corners, but not too bad. After using the lens in these conditions, I feel comfortable taking it as my wide angle lens when I travel.

    All of them were shot with flash and the ones in flight with a light barrier ?
    Are the fly pictures full size or 100% crops ?

    Hey thanks folks.

    Ring flash, but the ones in flight are just daylight, no barriers, pure natural. Only the bumble bee was flashed. Crops are the two larger fly heads and the others are virtually FF with just a slight rotate. I generally shoot over 3:1 with m4/3 but I'm still waiting to get all the gear setup for the NEX-7.

    The macros are with a Panasonic 45-200 locked on F/22 with an added Raynox DCR-250. The in flight shots are with a Canon FD 300 F/2.8 and a 50mm extension tube.

    All the best and still going through a few shots in here, nice work folks. That 7 sensor is something else for sure.

    Danny.

    I see that Danny already posted his macros. I just got back into macrophotography. These are some from the past week. Currently with my set-up, I'm limited to 1.72x. There is no crop on any of them. Peaking is a wonderful feature for macro, I did not have to do any focus mag.

    Wounded One - 1.7x mag.


    Desert Beauty - 1.6x mag.


    Hard Work - 1.3x mag.


    Social Corner - 1.3x mag.


    Taking a Stroll - 1.72x mag.

    hiepphotog, Just make sure your sensor is cleaned properly before every time you do macro and well past diffraction limits. It is a big headache.

    Shoot wide and crop. If you are getting too close to them, well theres not much chance of getting a fast enough shot. Take a long lens add a tube and work from well back. The advantage of the NEX-7 sensor is in cropping, its superb and that sensor is just screaming from cropping.

    Nice shooting there as well BTW. Enjoying the macro work we see from the 7. Keep them coming.

    All the best.

    Danny, I can't believe what you are doing with the NEX-7 and Canon lenses. Great bird shots. likewise Mike and hiepphotog at the other end of the distance spectrum., Ustein, everyone, great work.

    Thanks Quentin, appreciated but nature does its bit and I just get to push the button. There does seem to be an issue with some Sony lenses with the 7's sensor out resolving them, but the long fast lenses just love that sensor...and so do I.

    Keith, love that low perspective and that wide look. Nice work on that and I've always wondered about those converters, so great to see thanks.

    Ustein is Ustein unless it was Uve and he always delvers unique views and shots and always top class at that.

    Some great stuff in here and I'm slowly going through it all , taking awhile

    All the best folks, keep them coming.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    i'm probably outside the mold here, but i find it useful to use the nex 7 with studio flash.

    i am using manual node, G or M lenses, set shutter to 1/250, sony hotshoe-pc adapter manual focus of course...but here is the rub: I have to set the shutter to 1/8 or so to see in the LCD (modeling lights), then re-set to 1/250 for the shot. works fine, but is this the way to do it?

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    This has been answered (by Douglas) earlier.

    Go to the settings menu, find the settings effect and turn it off (make sure to turn it back on when not using studio flash other wise the actual WB and what you see are completely different!).

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    thx

    setup/liveview display/setting effect off

    not sure what this actually does, but now i see at full brightness (LCD adjust itself and shows a histogram of the scene as the LCD displays it) but the histo and LCD are not affected by shutter or aperture settings...I assume that is what "setting effect off" means.

    I'm not seeing a metering indicator, guess that is off as well oops! it is there

    still have some fiddling to do

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Yep, that's the point. Turning the effect off disengages the LCD preview and histogram from your exposure settings, so that you have a usable view for using strobes in M mode.

    Took my medium format and the NEX-7 to shoot a flower show here in Hong Kong. I ended up using the NEX-7 (with Leica R 100mm Macro).

    Awesome. Enjoy the new camera. It seems worth it. I am waiting for my kit to come.
