Egypt with the 5N and Nikon 28/2.8, Sony Kit 1855
Jan 23, 2012

Cairo, Alex, Aswan, Luxor, Hurgada.

Posted some photos in the Street Photog forum but I think it's more appropriate to share with other NEX'ers (mods, please let me know if I should just delete the other thread).

First time with a non-P&S, first trip using such a camera (5N)--so please go easy as I hope to graduate from "snapshooter" status and start taking shots like some of you.

Love the 28 Ais but thinking the Minolta MD 24/2.8 might be better for the wider FOV...but also thinking of the CV 28/2 for the contrast and bokeh. Hmm...

There was a point about 5-6 days in that I started to shoot with the histogram and understand how to use it to nail a tough shot. Loved it.

Thanks for viewing!



The sony kit had a CPL filter on and the camera was set to Vivid, but the Nikon (also Vivid but no CPL or any filter) had far lower saturation for some reason. I'll have to figure out why, but it was an interesting lesson.
