Kiteboading

at Assateague Island near Ocean City Maryland. Went to play golf but the wind was overwhelming. Plan B was a visit to the Island where we came upon these fellows: a77ii and the Sony 70-200mm G https://a4.pbase.com/g12/64/511964/2/168955575.frTHSgIy.jpg https://a4.pbase.com/g12/64/511964/2/168955574....

Re: Another Concert

Thanks for commenting Yidiz and Sury. Sury, it is a portrait lens after all. Most times, concert photography is about shots from the waist up. Of course, distance from the stage matters. My decision to take this lens was a simple one. The 70-200 is a white beast and draws attention. I wanted stealth...

Another Concert

The Ramshead Tavern is a small venue in Annapolis, Maryland. It attracts some pretty big names that once performed for much larger audiences. It's only us hardcore music heads that continue to support the efforts of these musicians. Last night I attended the Adrian Belew performance. He has quite a ...

Perfectly reasonable.
I need to check the Air Show box.

Re: San Jose Auto Show

Good job Sury. Some thoughts. Your mileage may vary. 1. I took public transportation to the auto show as well. If not for the smallness of the RX1, I probably would have taken 1 body and two lenses. I never felt unsafe while carrying the bag but I wasn't completely comfortable either. 2. Two bodies ...

Re: Concert Pics`

As I alluded to above, cropping a 24 megapixel sensor for this format leaves plenty of resolution. The RX1 intrigued me from the day it was released. The innovative design and the fact that it used the same sensor as the a99 made it an obvious 2nd camera choice (albeit an expensive choice). Glad I b...

Re: Concert Pics`

Once resigned to a fixed focal length, lighting and composition is all you have left. 50mm may have worked. Same goes for a 24mm. The 35mm of the RX1 seemed just about right for where I was sitting. Building on the last discussion of multiple cameras and lenses, I bet the RX100V with it's zoom capab...

Concert Pics`

Attended a Kansas concert Friday evening. Restrictions on cameras are as follows: No professional cameras (a meaningless restriction given modern technology). No detachable lens cameras. Lens cannot extend more than 3 inches beyond the body. No flash photography. So I took the RX1. The perfect crime...

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

So glad you guys chimed in. We need more of this. All the best. JT P.S. I joined a photography club a few years back. It only lasted for a year but the one thing I noticed was that many of the members were engineers. Why do engineers love photography? I think I know the answer but would love to hear...

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

That a77ii is a remarkable camera. It has better auto focus than the a99. The Minolta way was to introduce new technology in the 7 and then have it show up in the 9. That method was continued by Sony. Plus, put the Tamron 150-600mm on the a77ii and you have great reach without cropping. For vacation...

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

Don't know your circumstance for this image. I tend to take 2 cameras for vacations and or specific venues or shoots. It's the 24-105mm if i am walking around with a camera hanging from my neck. You are fortunate to have 42 megapixels at your disposal. I am stuck at 24. Concert next week. Cameras no...
