^ Great light on that first one!


I have a few stitched pano's from a Yosemite hike I did a few weeks ago. These were shot on a friend's NEX 5 with my CV 40/1.4. She gave me the jpeg's just recently. First stitch is about 100 mp. The second two are about 40-50 mp.




















Last one, not a stitch

Nice shots Jacob & joanlvh!

Lightshow - I don't see a huge difference in the RAW conversions at these sizes, it seems like the subtle shadow-lightening could be made to the JPGs. But once you get hooked on RAW it's hard to give the control back to the camera!

I'm going to have to force myself to use something other than the Canon FDn 35/2, as I'm using nothing else since I got it. But before I do:

I mainly wanted the shadows lifted vs. what the jpg's look like, it is nice to know I can get close to what I like sooc if I take my time with the settings, it really helps when the liveview simulation is accurate.

I know what you mean, the SSC 24/2.8 was glued to my 7 for a long time, my Elmarit M 28 seems to be hogging the spotlight the most these days, and my OM's mostly rule the night.

Really liking those panos jacob.

Nikkor 400mm 3.5 Ai-s, C3...

Got a new cheap adapter for $10 on eBay, and it's a lot tighter than my old one, quite happy.

Not a spectacular photo by any means but it blew me away. It was my first shot with a MF lens and adapter and I was shocked at how easy it is. Stopping down is easy since the viewfinder compensates and the peaking makes focus extremely easy. I normally shoot by moving focus points on my dslr and this is just as fast for focusing. This is from an old Pentax A28 2.8 lens borrowed from a friend.

Pawn shops will be visited this weekend...

Playing with a Pepper Mill.

I know this is not art but it was an interesting test for me with a lens I seldom use.
I wanted to accomplish three goals in this experiment with a Nex 5n and a Minolta 58mm 1.2 lens.

1. get as close to the object as the lens would allow.
2. limit the focal depth to just the crank and the cap of the pepper grinder
3.shoot at an angle which would increase the blur, and hopefully the pop, in the upper half of the frame

The aperture setting required was f:/3.5. I like the precise control of the DOF and I like the results which might be applied to more interesting subjects if it ever stops raining here. I hope to use this lens more but it is like holding a brick on a little Nex 5n.

Ebookman,
I like the simplicity of your shot.I think it would look very nice isolated on a black background.

Jim

I actually thought of you when I looked through the viewfinder at this lonely object. I think you are on to something good. I was also thinking about using a black background but I wanted to see the the background gradation and get a sense of how the lens was functioning.

Aww, he's (or she's) not ugly, he's just got a lot of character! I really like the legs perspective with Mom's legs in the shot.

I was running in a quiet farmland area by my home a couple weeks ago and a huge GBH swooped right in front of me when I ran by. Somehow I think we surprised eachother, the bird started squaking at me like I ruined his morning or sumthin



Here's a set from the Lick Observatory shot with 5N. I used the 24/1.8 for most of these. A few were taken with the CV15.

My brother asked me to buy Nex for him...

I have used nex-5N before, but I'd like to get him either Nex-6 or nex-7.

which is a better one....?
For a casual snaps and travel....

Sounds like the higher resolution of the 7 wouldn't be necessary, Paul, so unless there's a compelling reason for your brother to have the tri-nav wheels, I'd go with the 6.
