    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    I sold my NEX 7 last year and just replaced it with a new NEX 6. I couldn't resist the promotional discount. First trail walk shot (actually two stitched handheld shots) using the NEX 6 with Sigma 30mm f/2.8 DN.

    Carl - nice image. How does the Nex6 compare to your Nex7?

    Kit, if the tilt adapter you ordered is the same as this one then it should work fine, and you will enjoy the extra facility it gives your OM lenses. I've used mine principally to add apparent DOF to an image (rather than the miniaturization effect)

    Thanks Shac. Image quality seems to be about the same as the NEX 7, but for me handling is better with the 6.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Mike, it's a different one but I'm sure the principle is similar and I will post a photograph of it when it arrives.

    As an ex-architecture shooter, using the best of Canon's and Nikon's lenses, tilt is definitely something I miss. When I mentioned 'reverse tilt', what I was thinking of there was using the Olympus 50 macro with a bit of reverse tilt to lessen the depth of field for portraits actually. I have no idea what the bokeh of the Olympus 50 is like but I'm hopeful that about half a degree or so of reverse tilt will only improve its look in this regard.

    And to Shac: I have two NEX 6 bodies, and even though they have a lower MP count, I prefer them over the 7 in every way. And (a number of others have posted on this) the NEX 6 finder is (for me) definitely superior. I have zero problems using and composing with them.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Thanks Carl/Kit - I was just curious - no desire for a 7 (other than 24MP) but for me the 6 is way more friendly/useable handling than the 5N - its's become my go to.

    One more from the sixmile creek gorge shoot. NEX 6 with Sigma 30 2.8 DN, 3 shot stitch. This is just upstream from the "trickle" trib in the previous shot.

    Nice shots scho, especially like the rendering of your Hexanon. Very pleasing and nice bokeh. Comes out well with these nice and vibrant flowers.

    I'm having more and more fun with my NEX6
    These are just some quick snaps walking back from the Wroclaw city center after dinner going to our hotel. I'm amazed how the camera handles the low light, especially since the 16-50 PZ I had on there is not a very bright lens.

    2) Simple street


    3) Along the river Oder


    4) The Cathedral, looking over the river (this is actually a 6 MP crop of the total 16 MP sensor)

    Getting re-acquainted with some old glass on the NEX 6. These are with the Contax G 35mm f/2 Planar (modified for M mount).

    My one and only Sony lens. The 18-200 LE. Not the sharpest tack in the box, but a relatively compact, stabilized travel zoom.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    pegelli those are fantastic shots even with just the PZ!

    I haven't been able to shoot my NEX-6 much lately due to the bad weather in Vancouver. Of course when the weather is great I'm busy at work and don't get the opportunity to shoot.

    Anyway it did clear up a bit last week and I finally managed to get a decent shot with my NEX-6.

    Carl those are pretty nice. I really like the microcontrast from the lens-especially the last one. Do you have any photos of what the setup looks like?

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Beautiful "blue hour" reflection xtianyves. lovely composition and colours.

    Also like all these different plants and other details from scho, every lens a bit different but still there is also a very pleasing commonality in them.

    Maybe this one of mine doesn't belong in the "fun" thread. It's concentration camp Gross Rosen (near Wroclaw, Poland). A depressing place and the weather we had there really brought out the mood I felt.

    I don't know whether "like" is the right term to assign to that photo, pegelli, but it is indeed beautifully expressive and intensely emotional.

    Thanks. Here is a quick iPhone snap of the Canon FD 50mm 1.2L on the NEX 6. A compact but relatively heavy lens that balances nicely on the NEX, with the added weight a plus for stability when shooting hand held. Takes 52mm filters and I use B+W 52mm metal lens hood.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    A colleague's Novoflex adapter arrived this morning; I was able to mount the OM 50/3.5 for the first time. This lens seems razor sharp wide open, which surprised me. Both the peaking and the MF magnifications work, and the enlarged image does not seem to make focus any easier or more accurate than the peaking—and peaking is faster, so probably what I will go with.

    I find the 50 macro a touch front heavy on the '6.

    And (OT) I am looking for a NEX 7 body if I can find one at a good price.

    Pics to come; the Sigma "Art" 60/2.8 just arrived, too (two copies!).

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Kit, I was surprised at the weight of the glass (which makes it front heavy) as well. Amazingly, when few manufacturers had any idea about floating elements, Olympus did that for many of their lenses. The OM 50/3.5 also (according to Olympus) has that. This bodes well for infinity to close range performance.

    The bokeh, as you might noticed by now, is quite smooth.

    If you find the 3.5 macro front heavy try its big brother the 50/2 macro - but it's optically superb.
    The 3.5 is a great little lens and great for backpacking/hiking as well

    No problems just4fun, the split is a bit artificial and I would have preferred to stick with the simple "fun with Sony" and "fun with NEX" threads, but you can't control what threads everybody starts. Now there is lot more threads to monitor.

    I like your picture and the PP. By the looks of it quite a large dose of fill light, clarity and black-point increase. I sometimes do that as well, and it fits this picture well.

    Here's one from me from last week in Shanghai, looking at the other side from the Pudong river standing on the Bund. It was 39 degrees, 99% humidity and quite foggy so I didn't stay out there too long.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Received a CV Color Skopar 35/2.5 today; on the NEX 6 this is a lovely and small normal lens.

    With the Hawk adapter, focusses down to about a foot. It is sharp wide open (but with reduced contrast, which I like). The 'haptics' (the 'in word'; and a few less letters than 'eronomics', so a keeper for me!) are excellent; the aperture levers are easily distinguished; the fingertip focussing lever easy to use, and similarly with the bigger one on the Hawk's.

    The one thing I will change, though, is the detaching lever on the Hawk's: it is right in the way of where my RH middle finger wants to go. A few seconds on the grinder will fix that.

    And providing the essential-to-MF little finger position is Jim Buchanan's excellent "Palm Grip" (combined with the feather-light L-bracket); until you try one you will not realise the improvement in operability that results from this high-quality addition. With the little finger anchoring the body, the thumb can operate the magnifying button: very fast.

    To the web/html gurus here—any idea why the image tags (inserted via getDPI) do not work with Dropbox URLs?

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    OK, a few images from the CV 35/2.5:

    The first one I shot, ƒ4 from memory, straight out the back door; temperatures around zero, focus on the LHS, the grape vine:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/azdnzvvdve...ACam%20004.jpg

    The next of my girlfriend, the focus is on her left eye (from our perspective); this lens is fast to focus via the focus lever:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/2cvdn5sh4m...ACam%20009.jpg

    I like the OOF areas too; this is far from a Zeiss or Leica rendering, but I like it and the bokeh is very smooth.

    Something going on here; in the past I have inserted image links and URLs from my own server, and they display as intended. URLs from Dropbox do not, for some reason. Anyhow.

    Next is an image made during our daily walk; you can see the country around this area is nothing like Jono's! Focus on water tank, ƒ4 I think:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/xsgnng6reg...tank%20036.jpg

    We have been "misted in" for almost two full days now; this is an image from today as the mist lifted and became a large cloud:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ulecvchq6f...tree%20038.jpg

    And the last for today is another closer view of the mist:

    Cheers, this lens is a keeper for me. It is a 'snapshot' lens; I seem to have lost my fascination with ultra sharp, and I am more interested in both daily moments and the actual experience of framing and making an image. None of these are good in any way, but I am pleased with the gestalt. All images were shot in raw, but apart from a touch of edge sharpen in Aperture, are SOOC. Colours seem realistic and the scenes are rendered in a way that is quiet, somehow, and bring the actual experiences back to me—one of the reasons for 'taking a photo'!

    I don't use DropBox, but it looks like you need to take a few extra steps to link a photo. The most likely reason is because DropBox is for file sharing (any type), versus dedicated to photos.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    kuujinbo, thanks, but that does not help, because it is a set of instructions for uploading files from one's computer (I run a forum that uses the same interface).

    The image tag on this forum (the mountain icon above) is meant to do what I wanted; explicitly, to pull the image off DropBox by inserting its unique URL. If I upload any image files to my own server, the getDPI image tag works as intended. From a technical point of view, I can't see why the same tag can't pull a DB file into this forum. I will ask Jack to advise. Cheers and thanks, KL

    You got me interested. Created a dropbox account and installed. PITA, but you need to replace "www.dropbox.com" with "dl.dropboxusercontent.com" in the shared image link. This works for me.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    kuujimbo; that string you refer to (and thanks for doing all this!) does not appear in any of my ex-DropBox URLs... interesting. Let's see (and I will use a relevant image); I modified the lens removal tab on the Hawk's adapter to make it more comfortable—here it is pre-surgery:

    OK: just figured it out—I needed to move my "camera uploads" folder to the Public Folder in Dropbox; now it works as expected. Back to the story...

    This is the setup pre-surgery:



    This is the patient still taped up, but in recovery:



    And here is the WAY more comfortable adapter on the camera; the changes might not look like much, but make a world of difference in handling:



    Thank you so much!

    Glad you got it working despite my crap instructions. Bad copy and paste. I'll correct my original post right now.

    And an image from today's walk; the kangaroo populations are high after fours years of good water and grass (and these guys are BIG):



    And a view South:



    Both are taken with the delightful Color Skopar 35/2.5, at ƒ5.6

    @ kuujimbo: the mistake on my part was that anything a user wants to share publicly (in contrast to another person, one-to-one) has to be in the DropBox public folder. Thanks for making me look more closely at this.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Grrrr. Does anyone have a link to a reliable supplier of a tilt adapter (OM–NEX)?

    After waiting almost two months, I had a supplier renege on a purchase; no reason, just a refund. TIA, KL

    Brought my Nex5r down underwater and the inexpensive 50/1.8 SSS turned out to be a stellar performer

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Here is one I took this morning to test my Nikon 105 Macro VR on NEX 6. JPG straight OOC. 1/100 ~f8 ISO100. Needless to say, I am very pleased. (Link to original size)

    Kit - what am I not seeing in your modification of the Hawk's adapter?
