Alphas at the Ren. Faire

Unread postby KevinBarrett » Tue Jun 01, 2010 7:05 pm

Scarborough Faire, a local Renaissance fair, is a popular destination for LARPers and photographers alike. My wife went as a nun, and I went as, well, you guessed it already, didn't you?

Anyway, there weren't many other Alphas there, but it was hard to miss this fella overburdened with Sony cameras. He's got an HX1 on a tripod and an A350 in his hand. I'll venture a guess that he's a legacy Minolta user with a Maxxum 5 at home, judging by the Quantaray (Sigma) 28-90 mounted to his Alpha. The Ritz/Wolf Camera retailer chain bundled the Maxxum 5 with this lens and I've run into many other shooters with a similar setup.
