I jujst love the way the upper cloud formations are being illuminated here with the lower dark clouds moving in very fast beneath it.

Dramatic Cloud Formations II

If you look carefully at this image you will see some colour shift and posterisation. This is caused when downsampling for web in Photoshop. Not nice I know, but it's not there in the full sized image.
This was taken with the same combination of Nex-5N and CV 50 f1.5 lens. It was taken within seconds of the image in my previous post.

Dramatic Cloud Formations I

Dramatic Cloud Formations I

We've been having autumn weather lately in December. It's the kind of weather I really can't say I like. Damp, wet, cold, just plain stay-at-home weather. Yes I know, I should be out and taking some dramatic images in this weather. Shame on me.
However, I'm always looking out the window when we get this sort of weather and most of the time there are some dramatic cloud cover to photograph. This day was no exception with strong winds and some sun just peeking over the horizon before going down altogether. Some of the cloud formations were being illuminated through the cloud layers. Had my Sony Nex-5N handy so I snapped away quite happily.

Another one taken from the same afternoon with the same combination, the Nex-5N with the Canon 35 f2 mounted. Believe me, these clouds were moving at some speed. I think I'll see if I can get a better copy of this lens. It's just OK in my opinion. I've heard other people praise this one as being very sharp. Bad luck again, oh well.

Sony Nex-5N

We are experiencing Autumn weather in December this year. The weather is really playing up these days. Just can't plan ahead and the weather people don't seem to be having a good time with their prognosis either. I was just looking out the window as the light was fading and I saw these clouds coming over moving quite fast. I just ran for the nearest camera and it happened to have the Canon FDn 35 f2 on it.
Since I took this picture I've tested the lens more thoroughly and have come to the conclusion that there are sharper lenses out there (or I picked up a bad copy). Stop it down to around f8 and it's sharp, but that isn't what I bought an F2 lens for. I want to use it at f2, but if it isn't sharp at that aperture then what's the point right?
BTW, this was taken at aroung f5.6.

Camera and Lens Recommendation

Camera and Lens Recommendation

Somebody asked me today to recommend a new lens for an old Canon 10D camera. He wanted a lighter version of the one he had for general outdoor photography. I asked him if it had to be a lens for this ageing camera and he answered with a no. What I did recommend was this combination of an Olymus E-PL1 and the mZD 14-150 lens. I seem to have taken this combination with me on vacation quite a few times and it has always given me pleasant images. I'm really pleased with this combination. However, wheather he takes my advice is another question altogether.
BTW, these can be has on ebay for a pittance, and for those who are thinking about something like this, go for it. A refurbished unit plus the lens will cost you no more than a €250.

Pentax SMC FA 31 f1.8 adapted for Olympus EP-3

I had to post this one from the FA 31 f1.8. I really like the bokeh and just look at the sharpness of the leaves in the foreground. Again shot wide open of course.

Pentax SMC FA 31 f1.8 adapted for Olympus EP-3

Pentax SMC FA 31 f1.8 adapted for Olympus EP-3

The Pentax lenses in general are simply superb. Even the new DA pancakes are well regarded and I have a few galleries on my site with these lenses. The 31 f1.8 is pretty heavy compared to the new DA lenses but it certainly returns some great images. As I've said before I will have to put this on a NEX camera to see how it performs. Saddly, time is a problem.
I think this image says it all about these lenses. Great contrast and rendition. This was shot wide open so you could call it sharp. If it's like this wide open just think what it's like stopped down a couple of notches.

Panasonic DMC-L1 with the PL 14-150 Four Thirds Lens

Panasonic DMC-L1 with the PL 14-150 Four Thirds Lens

Just going through some older images from this year and I keep coming back to the Panasonic L1. This must be my favourite camera of all time. Build quality is great and I never had a problem with it. I don't think I'll ever sell it. This lens is pretty sharp too and at all focal length and aperture setting.

Panasonic GF-1

Panasonic GF-1

Took the GF-1 and the 14-45 (best kit lens out there in my opinion) to a local private park that's only open one day per year. Weather wasn't all that great but there was a lot to see, a lot of stalls and a lot to eat. Had a great day.
This is the best kit lens out there I think and it constantly turms in sharp, contrasty images. I prefer using it on the G1 one tough as the GF-1 is better with the small primes like the 20 f1.7 or the 14 f2.5.
Great colour in this image.
