    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Nice one Philippe! Also with the Zeiss 35?

    Today I took a simular foto with simular light circumstances as you had. Very harsh and not as clean sharp as your lens.
    This is the cathedral in Chartres. There is one from the inside with the selftimer in the Ricoh thread.

    Big fan of your flower work Ken.

    Edit, just had a look at your website, now I know why your stuff looks like LF film, you're a LF film shooter!

    Have to be honest I've not been a fan of the Nex 7's images, I find the tonality lacking and the contrast dead, but your stuff makes me believe there is hope.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Thank you very much

    I can't speak for others - and I'm new to digital beyond point&shoot cameras - but the sensor on the NEX-7 impresses me with its dynamic range and tonality.

    It's important to shoot RAW images of course, and not over-expose. With the extended dynamic range set as wide as possible, and "under" exposing by EV-1 or greater, Adobe Camera Raw can give us a pretty broad range of tones to deal with.

    Ultimately, it's the subject of course: if the subject is already beautiful, the camera (and photographer) need only be adequate.

    Distagon 24/2 ZA:

    DSC01550.jpg by Taylor Sherman, on Flickr

    Leica 21/3.4 SE - this was an in-camera HDR, and since JPG (not RAW) it didn't get cornerfixed by my batch processing, so I went B&W. This I believe is with LR4's "green filter" B&W preset.

    DSC01512.jpg by Taylor Sherman, on Flickr

    same lens:

    CV 180/4 APO-Lanthar (Nikon mount) - tight crop, roughly 2.5Mp

    DSC01222.jpg by Taylor Sherman, on Flickr

    same lens - it's almost a macro (this is NOT cropped)

    DSC01167.jpg by Taylor Sherman, on Flickr

    another:

    Back to the Super-Elmar - this has no PP other than cornerfix

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Nice shots, Uwe -not a lens I have seen very much of.

    Got a Zeiss 100 MP the other day. It's heavy. Not a killer - only slightly heaver than the 24/2 Distagon ZA + LA-EA2, for instance. But not going to be an every-day lens. Also, it's a tough FL on 1.5x crop for me. Works great for macro, though.

    Seems like. I get the feeling it is underrated. All shots were taken at fixed infinity.

    Passing the Pyrenees at the boarder to Spain over a small pass at 2300 m. I saw these cows and horses. An exeptional sight. (For the cows look at the Ricoh GXR thread.)

    Vivek, you should read on under History in your own link and you would have red that the design of ASTORGA EPISCOPAL PALACE has been made by Gaudi.

    Michiel, I read that the original design was made by Gaudi. However, what is standing there now is not a Gaudi due to several modifications.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Well, it must be the story of his life.
    The Sagrada Família in Barcelona has known many architect since the time he died, killed by a streetcar. He would certainly not have approved of all the new developments and designs. It is in the spirit of, but no more.
    One can clearly see that. The part approved and controlled by him looks much more interesting then the newer parts.

    Actually the same counts for Episcopal Palace, although he did not approve of it during his lifetime. In reality it is rather ugly and has an extreme high kitch content.

    Though, most travel guides and city folders speak about a work of Gaudi. It probably sells better.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    I just traded up from a pair of NEX5 bodies to a pair of NEX 7 and I'm just getting to grips with them... lovely cameras. Yesterday, I picked up the Sigma 30mm f2.8 and Sony 50mm f1.8 lenses for them and went shooting in downtown Vancouver in the Chinatown and Gastown areas. Here's some resulting shots, processed in Topaz Detail and some in Silver EFex Pro. As always, click on a picture for a larger version.

    Thank you - Yes, a big change

    As a tourist in Paris, there was no way I could carry a tripod around - never mind a view camera. The NEX-7 with 18-55 kit lens fit in a jacket pocket.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Ken, as a Parisian, I face that same tripod problem, and have found multiple partial solutions. The obvious one is to check whether there are any surfaces where I can lay down the camera and get the shot I want. Not often, but sometimes it works. The second possibility is a Manfrotto table-top tripod on the ground. It can't work when there are lots of people walking by, but it is fine in quieter parts,where I can do it disceetly and neither bother anyone nor be told off. The third one is a Cullmann harness that is not as effective as a tripod, but lets me go down to about 1/4s. Hope this helps!

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Thank you - excellent suggestions.

    To keep the camera steady, I set the ISO fairly high, held the camera against my abdomen and looked down at the LCD to compose the shots: a "poor-man's harness" I guess.

    Thanks Vivek and Philipe

    Did you see the rumor about a new profi NEX. We will know more on the 12th. Steve Huff has one right now.
    I am going to the Photokina on the 20th to see all the new goodies.
