Abbazz's recent activity

  • I decided to shave the lens hood of my Sigma 8-16mm in order to be able to use it at 8mm on my sd Quattro H. I don't like how rectilinear ultrawides distort the perspective near the left and right ...
  • I have a couple of these great cameras. The most remarkable lens is the Fujinon SWS50mm f/5.6. It covers quite a wide angle on 6x9 film! It should be interesting to see it used for shifts on a ...
  • I would buy a second hand a7rii with the 24-105mm lens. An used a7rii can be found for around $1000 body only and less than $2000 with the 24-105mn. For portraits and kids snapshots both indoors ...
  • NX500 with 30mm: Today's sunset over Jakarta Cheers! Abbazz
  • A couple from with the full-spectrum converted NX Mini with an 850nm infrared filter: There is some flare in the upper middle of the frame. Cheers! Abbazz
  • Welcome back to your pond, Ted! I hope you get well soon! Cheers! Abbazz
  • A few experiments from today. First, a picture taken with my full spectrum NX Mini with a green filter (with custom white balance): The "cotton candy" effect The same picture, with the red and blue ...
  • For the 9mm, I just hold the filter in front of the lens but I might permanently glue a 37-39mm step-up adapter ring in the future. The 17mm lens has a 39mm filter thread. I am sorry but mine is ...
  • Pentax 6x7 lenses are easy to adapt on 645 cameras. The 105mm f/2.4 is superb for portrait on a 645 camera, although it has become quite expensive lately. I also recommend the 6x7 Macro 135mm (a ...
  • Try to find a Pentax 645 in good shape. For a $1,200 budget, you should be able to buy a good body with a few lenses. The Pentax 645 is very sturdy and easy to use. The lenses are relatively ...
  • Replied in Visit with Ted
    Ted would have objected the picture is off topic because it has not been taken with a Sigma camera with a legacy Foveon sensor. :-D Thank you for the update and best wishes to Ted for his recovery. ...
  • A Rolleiflex with a modern prism finder is also able to see in the dark... I use a Rolleiflex T with an Arax TTL metered prism finder (with the help of a Baier Fototechnik adapter). The huge ...
  • +1 for Olympus/OMD Systems for long telephoto and macro photography. The m4/3 equipement is much lighter, smaller and easier to work with in the field. The x2 crop factor, solid image ...
  • I use a 720nm filter as well and also like to shoot with various colored filters in order to try to emulate the colors from Kodak Ektachrome IR film. I prefer using the 9mm and 17mm primes lenses ...
  • I usually use the "Capture Setting" rather than the "Default Camera Setting" option when importing. The "Default Camera Setting" option delivers an image like when using Sigma Photo Pro with all ...
  • Replied in Sigma sa300
    It is indeed true that many of the old lenses are not as good as the newer ones but some are superb and some others are not so good but nevertheless useful. I got the 50mm macro (with dead AF), ...
  • Thank you for posting this. I agree regarding the Sigma plug-in for Photoshop. I also use this to process my Merrill and Quattro pictures. The one-stop processing is really an advantage over any ...
  • Replied in The first ones
    My first digital camera was a Canon Powershot S40 that I bought after the Sigma SD9 and Pentax *ist D were released. I paid $800 for the Canon 4 MPix point-and-shoot camera (it was even more ...
  • Replied in Sigma sa300
    Congratulations on your purchase. As a side note to Ted regarding the relevancy of posting this here, I would object that looking for sales of these old analog Sigma cameras is a great way of ...
  • One has to be really careful when cleaning the sensor on a Sigma DSLR or mirrorless because most of them have removable UV-IR cut filters. On any other camera with interchageable lens, the sensor ...
