Well 2015 Draws to close ... And what was new at RWCS Photographics ?
Well 2015 a bit of change year at RWCS .... full of tipping points as I started to pay more attention to the new technology which has been flying around .. having made the expensive investment to move to Nikon in 2009, in 2015 maybe it was time to see and experiment and find out what the tech landscape was offering up.
First the acquisition of the "go pro" in 2014 .. useful but ultimately frustrating as the camera jiggle on John Davies helicopter meant we really needed to use a very expensive gimbal... so no real benefit to shooting useful video footage on a mobile platform .. useful but not a big thing for me
Then the story of the EVF Sony Nex 7 .. nice camera to add to the kit and it has been used with a kit lens when the big nikons are just too big to lump around.. The BIG tipping point for use and flexibility was using a GREAT bit of kit ... the metabonexs speedbooster See http://www.metabones.com/products/details/MB_SPNFG-M43-BM3
This wicked thing has allowed me to use all of my nikon glass on the Sony using the focus peaking feature .. brilliant ... many many times with the Nikon full frame 14 - 24 mm working really well ..... but only really useful for landscapes when lugging a nikon D3X is a no no but kicks ass as they say
So SONY mirrorless and the 4/3 rds sensors ( the Nex 7 is now well worn and well used ... good buy ) but what else from Sony ? ...
And then I started to use it in concert venues with other stock sony lenses ... BOOM ... suddenly this 250 pound lens camera starts to get pictures when I have never succeeded... until now ... with the low light iso capacity and its discreet size .... Now means it is now in "my always carry kit " bag ... and just look at these examples..... all hand held and composed on the mobile phone !
and then at at least 3 others the latest being Status Quo
So my Sony adventures have really changed the capture pattern ... with good pictures now flying off a Motorala LG4 connected to the qx1 most of the time . The Nikons still get used but now only when I need the big stuff speed and precision or ultimate control ..
so come on Nikon give me a mirrorless full frame to use my all f lenses on before I run off and by a Sony A7R II as well ....
