Re: Landscape 2014

Sury, I sure wish it was the same, but it only has micro usb. Eventually they will come up with something, at least one can hope, as I love shooting star trails :D

Re: Landscape 2014

I've found Dr Browns services to be amazing for star trails provided you have CS5 or CS6. It's a very automated process and his videos explain how to use it. Look for the "Stack-a-matic" tutorial. http://www.russellbrown.com/scripts.html Sorry to spam with a non-sony image, holding onto a ...

Re: Share your A7(r) Photos :)

Thanks, we're lucky enough to have a dog that will pause from time to time despite his high energy. More often he is just good practice for trying to track focus :) A7 + Nikkor-P 105mm 2.5 12-2013 0911.jpg Panoramic with the A7 and Rokkor PF 135mm 2.8 Shasta.jpg Normally the 4,000 meter peak is cove...

Re: Share your A7(r) Photos :)

For any landscape type work I think it's best to use the rear LCD magnified because if the diopter is just a little off for the EVF the focus ends up just a little bit off too. Something to think about for those of us with less than 20-20 vision. Even with moving objects I'm finding more perfectly i...

Re: Landscape 2014

A lot of work for this one, about 22km of bike riding on roads closed for the winter, but worth it in the end.

To take a break from the expensive rangefinders here is a Industar-26 52mm 2.8 on the A7.

I like seeing how different lenses look on the A7. Mounted via a Contax/Nikon RF adapter to the A7. Only $50 with the lens.

Re: Exhibit your B&W shots

Thanks for the kind words! The vignetting was the background & lens, the light center in the background is a patch of sand with darker dirt around it. The lens is a sonnar rangefinder design from ~1950 or so that Nikon briefly carried into their SLR mount. Wide open and near mfd exaggerates the ...

Re: Share your A7(r) Photos :)

Thanks, it's been a joy to own so far, I've been trying lots of lens combinations but will probably end up sticking with old Nikkors just due to muscle memory for their focus direction.

Re: Share your A7(r) Photos :)

Greetings photoclubalpha, I'm a long time Nikon and NEX user but never bonded with the NEX enough to join. The A7 on the other hand... A7 & Canon FD 135mm f2, about half the weight and this one costs only 10% of the Sony Zeiss 135mm 1.8. Too bad the mfd is around 5' _DSC3115.jpg In use at f/2.8 ...
