中幅中毒 (二): Phase one P65+ & 645DF

CF003210

接上一篇 中幅中毒(一): Pentax 645D。 試玩 Pentax 645D之後已經下定決心要投入中幅之路,645D雖好但仍是心思思想找其他機種再試清楚。

一天晚上從朋友手上試玩了富士的GFX 50S,這是經改良後的版本。在我來看, GFX 50S好玩之處在於轉接方面,你可以接上林林總總的老鏡,玩味十足 !! 但若論畫質,以她的身價,市面應該有更好的選擇吧!

最後,還是走上了數碼背之路。 Continue reading

Review: Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8

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.

DSC_3692-2

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
