It was pretty bad light and wind. I put the ND+4 on the little Nikon P6000, and I was reminded of last year when I decided to go with Nikon for my first dslr purchase. (Here is the shot from last year, from a coolpix 8700.)
The old H1 seems a better performer these days ever since I took it apart to repair the lens. It would seem this version of the H1 sensor is better.
Last week I picked up an Kodak Ektra 2 (a 110 camera) in perfect condition. It still had 19 shots left, so I have been taking it out. This is not really a good film format. Fun and small and very nostalgic. This one has a cool clip on flash that takes two AAAs.
I put the camera up to the viewfinder.
This is my other new acquisition. It has a very plasticky and clunky shutter feel. Still, it is my first working 35mm slr.
I drove around the Old Coast Road on a dirt part that I somehow missed before. The sun was setting at the sea and the light was filtering in a just a few places.
I started to look at the images from my 13.5mp P6000. It sure seems like it is more marketing than sensor to have so many pixels. For the last few shoots, I have put the P6000 down a notch to 8mp. It looks the same to me, though performance is not noticeably improved.
Random telephoto shot yesterday with the Sony H1:
It got to be time to show the infrared D5000 some love.
This is probably too abstract; a late 1970’s Covette. I suppose I am to be self-conscious about the poor quality of the BOKEH! from my 35mm AF-S 1.8G lens. But while the BOKEH! isn’s the best, it is often pleasing enough.
It was a gray and foggy day. After the sun went down, I tried something for the first time: infrared photography with the built-in flash. The results are nice. A little spooky and Halloweenish, but interesting.
It was pretty dark at this point.
Purple thistle in the dark.
The flash on the camera is not that strong. The infrared results are usually unpredictable. Here is a funky parting shot of the sea at night.
