tony field's recent activity

  • Created discussions In conversation with Kat
    Kat came over for a coffee. Lighting was tungsten kitchen light overhead and overcast cloudy light through the windows. The lens was a 1950's vintage 50mm Summilux.
  • I bought my F1 in the 1980's second hand for about $400.  Cannot see any reason to upgrade for the F0.95 ... other than the fact that contrast on the new lens is higher and there is less focus ...
  • None the less, the down-res / up-res is distinctly worse than the full 50 mp image. The 50MP image could be processed as you suggest for even finer results. Some folks will appreciate the high...

    Thanks Emil.  Indeed auto-focus is extremely useful.  You can certainly be sloppy with your technique and the modern cameras can get you out of problems.  I usually use the M9 for "easy to shoot" ...

    Humm   she was not wearing a skirt..... :)
  • Created discussions Friends
    I was vising some friends.. Here is a snap that turned out to my liking ... the original colour shot was strongly flared from the window light ... b&w seed appropriate.  The lens is an early ...
  • The down/up sampled version has less detail / image crispness than the full 50.6 mp image.

  • Replied in JeanPierre
    Thanks JeanPierre.  Indeed the focus point choice was a bit distracted.  I misjudged when the focus point should compositionally be.   Just a bad choice when I raised my camera to the eye :(
  • Created discussions Red Shoes
    I was looking at some of my old Leica M9 shots ... and ran across this one taken through the dirty window at a starbucks in the evening on a cloudy day.  Two frames were taken ... one in focus (on ...
  • Indeed .... all of your images with any of your lenses will be sharper

  • The camera sounds interesting. I suspect that the common shooting will be done in APSH 1.3 crop mode giving a 30MP image. Use of 51mp will be used "where appropriate".

    I will be curious to see...

    Thanks for the kind comment John.  This shoot was so much fun and "different" than the type I normally shoot in my "stuido" (living room)

    Interesting comments Jeff. I never thought of it before.. but there is certainly a Pre-Raphaelite feeling to the image. Kat was the actual creator of the concept ... she certainly likes the art ...

    Yes, I did post a similar image a long while ago.  For this, I changed the wall picture to something more appropriate and adjusted the colour.
  • Replied in Eduardo
    Thanks Eduardo.   The shoot was quite fun.  Kat borrowed the dress and the cushions.  All I had to do was set up the black foam-core background.
  • Created discussions Variation on a Kat theme
    Changed a fair bit for a period style....
  • Some corrections are made at the RAW level for coded lenses ... for example, adjusting for corner fall off. I understand that colour cast corrections for coded lenses are done as well. I also ...
  • Depends upon your "need" for higher speed lenses.  For most photographic situations, the Elmarit will work perfectly well.  I have an older 90 mm F2 Summicron and the 75 Elmarit.   My Summicron is ...

  • I quite like these.  I think that three or four  of these framed with inexpensive black frames would make a very interesting artistic arrangement to put on the wall.
