Fresh EX2F shots.
3 months ago
The weather a few days back presented an excellent opportunity for a walk with the cameras. In the bag was a Minolta x-700, a Zeiss Ikon nettar and of course the EX2F. Actually only the Minolta was in the bag, the other two fits easily in large pockets. Anyway, the Samsung got most of the action.
I've noticed two new thing about the camera. Automatic whitebalance is very good, compared to my Eos 40d and a few ixus compacts. And is easy to adjust in PP.
The other thing has to do with the autofocus lock and is quite irritating. Half pressing the shutter release engages the AF lock. Full press takes the picture. But returning to half press does nothing, the camera does not take new pictures if the shutter is fully pressed again. You have to refocus to take the next shot! There is a separate AEL botton and a separate manual focus setting, and those are great thing to have. But in my opinion a half press should engage AF lock, AE lock, and AWB lock. Well I haven't read the manual so maybe there are settings for that.
Here are the shots, all raw, minimal noise reduction.
Last up a 3D shot. Be sure to watch at full resolution.
