散景@Sigma 105mm F1.4 Art & NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED
論散景又怎可以不提 Sigma 和 NIKKOR 的兩支 105mm f/1.4重量級巨頭。

105mm本身就是一支人像鏡,再加上 f1.4大光圈,可以營造出特別濃郁的「空間切割」感。 Continue reading

我和她相處了八個月,對她越來越熟悉更越來越喜歡她。

D850 應該是 Nikon 最後一部單反旗艦。這次希望從用家的角度,可以為她留下一份實實在在的使用經驗。 Continue reading

Review: Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8

00100dPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20180317165532678_COVER

If you know me, you should know I am not a fans of wide angle lens. Most of the time I use telephoto lens, i.e. 85mm or above, to create a tight and themed picture.

After years of shooting, I begin to learn some of the best pictures; landscape, flower and astrophotography, are taken by wide angle lens. I was thinking “Maybe it is time to learn something new?” Continue reading

Accuracy of Live view AF in D850

DSC_3686

One day, I am just curious and use my D850 to shoot a dinosaur figure, one of the collections of my son.

This Dino is around 10 feet away from me and i try to focus on his tiny little eye using the “pinpoint” AF function, a new AF mode introduced in D850.

After several trial, I will say her accuracy is outstanding.

Not bad, considering it is a taken by an old lens and in Wide open (f/1.4) condition (Nikon AF 85mm f1.4D)

I find the speed of Live view AF has been improved significantly in D850 however it still cannot compare with the snapping AF response when using conventional view finder. If you use the live view AF for snap shot, portraiture, landscape, it will be fine it can certainly do the job. However The same does not hold true in speed photography such as taking sport scene.

Bokeh? I am not fond of that.

Nikon D850 review (snapshot)

DSC_2780-2

It seems nowadays DSLR is not a preferred choice for street photography, on the contrary a compact mirrorless camera with retro vintage outlook is more welcomed. Despite the look and “feel”, DSLR is actually a well development system which can serve mostly all purpose of shooting including street photography. Continue reading

D850 入手一星期報告

00100dPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20180222193545387_COVER_2

新年來到, 收到D850作為自己送給自已的生日禮物真的開心到不得了,哈哈哈!!!

入手前曾經考慮過Sony A7Riii。規格上着實是蠻吸引的;兩部機的感光元件大致相同,而無反在重量上更一定佔優,再加上10fps⋯⋯所以D850在規格上沒有什麼優勢。

可是相機是攝影師的眼睛,人和相機的配搭及互動很大程度上是很主觀、很個人的。在一而再再而三的試用之後,我就再沒有考慮A7Riii了。當然這是我個人的選擇並不是說A7Riii不夠好。 Continue reading

快樂可以好簡單

一日放工行過海旁,正值大潮,水位比平常高出不少,拍岸的浪更大。

眼見一對情侶在岸邊興奮地拍照

潮來潮去其實是平常不過的事,但他們拍得不亦樂乎,連身邊的我都被感染了。
DSC06843

他們面上的笑容教曉我,快樂可以好簡單。只要你保持著一顆好奇心,事無大小都可以變得新鮮;每一次的相遇都是偶然,每一件小事都值得珍惜。

晚上在海邊沒有太多的燈光, 將手上的 SAL G 70-200mm f2.8 全開, 在快門 1/250s 之下 機身需要將ISO調至12800的最高數值。可以想像當時的環境有多暗,而A99II的對焦亦無可避免比平常慢了下來。
DSC06860

縱使如此A99II都順利完成任務,她依然是我可靠的一號機 !!
