An easy 8k walk out to Elabana Falls and a little rock hopping gets you this spectacular view. This makes five hikes over the last 6 weeks and just a little more ready for a 3 day hike in Nepal next month. We started on the Border track and then took the route to Picnic Rock. Mountain views and ancient trees make this an outstanding place to take in the beauty of nature.
Photos taken with the Sony A7 M2 and the FE 28-70 mm lens.
While deciding on whether or not I was going to splurge on the sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA lens, I tried out the E 50mm F1.8 on my full frame, meant for my A5000 and crop sensor camera. Using the APS-C format on my A7 M11 turned out better than expected. These are all SOOC (Straight our of camera). The last 2 photos were taken with the sony FE 28-70mm OSS lens. Lighting was just magical!
I was rather excited to get cracking on using the Sony E 50mm F1.8 lens and to check out its bokeh performance. The lens had been on sale but out of stock, however 3 weeks later I got the call and went in to pick it up. I'm pretty happy with the results of my newest lens for the Sony A5000. These photos have had a few basic colour and contrast adjustments using Sony's Capture One 10. I'm so loving the Sony experience that I couldn't resist the mid year sale and Sony's $200 cash back on the A7 mark 11. Now I just have to work out which Zeiss lens to get while the Sony offer is still available!
Two weeks ago I had no idea how to use the manual settings on the Sony A5000. My first challenge was getting off Intelligent Auto and shooting a slow shutter speed. As an amateur learning the ropes I love the versatility of the Sony A5000 as an entry level DSLR, even though it is a mirrorless camera and not a DSLR at all! The E mount allows for switching between lenses and loads of options as the world's lightest interchangeable-lens digital camera. As a crop sensor camera it doesn't do too bad and packs a powerful punch for 20.1m. These photos were taken on the 16-50 power zoom lens.
