    Thanks Matt. No, I'm not quite that old. There was only one class of '25 survivor in the p'rade and he must have been at least 108.

    Michiel,

    The orange masses at Princeton made me think of both Holland and Syracuse University where orange rules.

    Your last shot is fascinating. Complex window reflections or double exposure?

    Yes and yes. The lighting was just like that. And the image is a single shot HDR - the only way I can recreate the way it got fixed in my brain
    I tried it both ways.

    The kit lens is a pleasant surprise. Here is a jpg straight out of the camera, no sharpening, etc, plus a crop of "actual pixels"
    No work of art, just a test.

    Dave,
    Still don't have any Sony lens. At the time I bought the NEX-7 the black kit lens was not available yet. Hope to get one but they are hard to get seperatly.
    How do the files compare to your 645D?

    BTW I do enjoy your work in the 645D forum very much. Looks like an exellent camera to me.
    Would like to get one to do landscape work here in Normandy, France.
    But it is serious money, although they do already appear on the used market for around € 7000,--

    I have not made side by side comparisons NEX7 and 645D. I use the two systems for very different uses: The NEX and several lenses fit in a small bag, and I keep it in the car so I always have a camera for that "grab shot". The 645D is often used on a monopod or tripod for more contemplative photography. Attached is a "best of both worlds combo shot" The forground was a quick grab shot with NEX and Zeiss 24mm lens. the sky was done with a 645D.
    Best of luck, and thanks for the kind words

    Since you told me I can't get rid of the feeling something is not right with this photograph. Like the boarderline of the sky and sea seems to sharp, I don't know.

    Here are two from my walks along the fields.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    I've just used my NEX7 on a professional job for the first time.

    Normally I'd have used an A900 but I needed to do some quiet available light work, so armed with the Sigma 19mm and 30mm I set to work photographing a well known celeb visiting a Primary School and was very pleased with the results! I cannot publish them here as the parents might object, but I don't think the client will have any complaints with the results!

    I have used a NEX5 before for some small things but to shoot a whole job on a NEX7 is something I didn't think I would do. I would have used a 24/1.8 if I had one (pretty difficult to find in these parts!) but the little Sigmas did a grand job!

    A near/far garden composition shot with the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II on the NEX7. Two shifted shots with 1.5 degrees downward tilt processed and stitched in CS6. I shot the same scene with the Canon TS-E on the Fuji XP1 today and posted that image in the fuji forum.

    They're both very nice!

    The lighting changed between the 2 setups, and it's hard to judge at these sizes - so how do things compare in your estimation ?

    All things being equal (which they never are) the NEX-7 certainly shows broad dynamic range.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Carl, very nice...... I have owned PS since PS7 but in all honesty have had avoidance issue's using PS unless I absolutely had to save a shot. Fact is it confuses the heck out of me and causes much frustration when I use it. I loaded CS6 when it first was available but to date haven't used it but most I talk to urge me to use this version as they say it is much more user friendly. When I see shots like yours and the stitching it sure makes me want to jump in and give it a honest try again.

    I use Aperture3, DXO7, and Topaz without hesitation ... Getting me to use PS is like pulling teeth. I hate the terminology, the workflow, and the resulting file sizes. But I guess I hate not being proficient enough to use it is my real issue.

    Thanks ken. Both cameras performed well with this lens and it would be hard to choose based only on the image. It was easier to use the NEX7 with flip up LCD for tripod use (as in this situation), focus peaking, and variable magnification. MF with the XP1 is quite painful in comparison. The XP1 seems to produce slightly more fine detail (if it doesn't get crushed by Adobe during raw import) and better high ISO image quality (not an issue in this case). I was frankly quite surprised at how much DR I was able to pull out of this scene with the NEX7. I did make heavy use of the highlight and shadow sliders, but the image tolerated the adjustments well. This was a high contrast scene, compared to the overcast lighting today with the XP1 shot.

    Jim, I normally use LR for routine raw image processing, but in this case I needed the stitching capability of Photoshop which is the only reason I went there first. Stitching in CS5 or CS6 is a simple one button push - nothing complicated at all. Just import your images that you want to stitch together, select File>Automate>Photomerge. Select add open files and either Auto or Reposition, depending on whether you used a tripod or handheld when taking the shots. I used a Tilt/Shift lens on a tripod so images were almost perfectly aligned and I just used reposition for stitching.

    The toning in your monochrome images is really beautiful. Do you still use your photoshop fill layer method?

    Thank you - yes, that's how I do it. So far, it's the best and simplest approach I have found, but I haven't searched for a while. As we know, there are often several ways to do the same thing in Photoshop

    So here's an example of some really heavy-handed post processing working out well. Suffice to say the image looked completely different out of the camera; two of the steps involve here include switching to "Tungsten" WB and then turning down saturation 75% :-)

    With the 21SE - the magenta cast is proving difficult to eradicate in all cases - some photos it's totally removed by cornerfix, others still look like this one.

    I may just end up bringing the 5N along too when I go out with that lens.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Hi all. Brand new to the forums. I joined up for all the great Sony info I have found on here. Currently making the move from Canon DSLR's to a NEX/SLT setup. I cant be happier.

    Michiel, that is a wonderful carousel photo. The composition with the cliffs in the distance is just spot on.

    Here is a little macro from my NEX 7 using the wonderful Minolta MD Macro Rokkor-X 50/3.5, straight out of the camera using the toy camera effect. Hope you enjoy and I look forward to posting and learning here.

    A couple of strange sightings down at the local park and farmers market. NEX7 with Sony 50 E 1.8.

    Scottish festival participants (clan of the cave bear?)

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.

    While yarn installations – called yarn bombs or yarnstorms – may last for years, they are considered non-permanent, and, unlike other forms of graffiti, can be easily removed if necessary. Nonetheless, the practice is still technically illegal, though it is not often prosecuted vigorously.

    While other forms of graffiti may be expressive, decorative, territorial, socio-political commentary, advertising or vandalism, yarn bombing was initially almost exclusively about reclaiming and personalizing sterile or cold public places.[2] It has since developed with groups graffiti knitting and crocheting worldwide, each with their own agendas and public graffiti knitting projects being run.

    I had no idea...

    Thanks, neither did I. Guess I'd rather deal with this than the painters.
