I have been going on my regular bushwalks with family and friends again and exploring what I can get from small format cameras. The Merrils are difficult and will require a steep learning curve and I will put these aside till later.
However the Sony RX 1 and the Fujifilm XE 1 are getting a real run at the minute. The Sony is head and shoulders above the XE 1, I am doing my best to give the Fujifilm a good rating, but the Sony is so good that this is difficult.
On this recent walk I had a hoot with the Sony and let the photos show what it is capable of, the dynamic range is outstanding and the detail is amazing. This is the Wombat State Forest, a forest that was ruined by logging and is only slowly recovering. When the first white settlers came through these forests they wrote about the majesty of the forest giants and the wonderful parklike understory. They also wrote about the bizarre trees that kept their leaves in autumn and dropped their bark!

I finally took the RX1 out last night and put it on a tripod for the first time. Some shots of the bridges on the Mississippi in Minneapolis. I'm also starting to link my images from my website rather than direct upload. Still very much a draft in Zenfolio but coming along.

Really enjoying this camera. Even heavily cropped the quality of the images is amazing. This image is about 8 of the sensor's 24 megapixels. I am really looking forward to traveling with the RX-1--my first trip will be DC/Baltimore at the end of the month. Last time I was in DC I had about 27 pounds of gear, this time I will have only one pound.

If I keep on shooting this RX1 until I find a buyer for it I may just change my mind about selling it....

Holy Cow! Great shot millsart!

I recently connected with my best friend from high school after 30+ years through Facebook. Turns out he was attending an event 1.5 hours from where I live so met up with him for a few hours. While he has aged (as have I), he remains young at heart.

Social snapshot



BTW, a rather funny anecdote:
Recently I was at a wedding (as a guest) and I had my RX1 with me. I shot some photos of the bride when suddenly one of the other guests came over to tell me I could use his camera if I wanted to. I think it was an old Canon 400D with kitlens. "It's better than P&S cameras". I chuckled and just said no thank you I'm fine.
That's exactly one of the reasons why I like the RX1 so much, most people don't have a clue that it's a serious camera he he.

That crow (? guess its crow) photo is amazing.. I really wonder how you managed that. Is that his feather flying away?

thanks! it's actually a raven and scraggly though he was, he wasn't losing feathers as he passed by. that bit behind him is a second more distant raven.

i was on a cliff taking this picture:





when he kinda swooped by, so i just kinda waved the hyperfocally focused camera at him as he passed.

both the ravens and hangliders like to ride the thermal currents around that cliff so i hung around for little a bit hoping one of them would do another near pass. this is as close as any got though:

nice! periodically when i'm shooting in the city at some big event with a nex or the rx1 i'll have some enthusiastic guy with a rebel or low end nikon come over and tell me how great their dslrs are. i just tell them i like to keep things small. the only time anybody ever actually comments on my camera is when i'm shooting film.

Why I love my RX1

Today I was playing around with extreme cropping and thought I would post an example for people considering the RX1.

Nice ebookman. That should silence the people that still believe the lens doesn't perform well at infinity.

You guys are getting some great images out of this thing, but no excuses I guess ;-)

@sebboh: How are you finding the RX1? Any user tips?
