I have just reviewed all the pictures from last weekend, and the highlights were catching the fog in the inner harbour and the coast behind the Otago peninsula.
And a seal.
I think the seal wins.
It is the very busy time of the year. The number of walks we have had has been limited by family duties. These are some shots taken at Warrington and Brighton, Dunedin.
Photos taken primarily with a 20 mm f 4.5 Voightlander, D800, processed in darktable to 1500 .png. These seem to load faster than if I put the raw files up.
I made a mistake today. I did not put a camera in the car when we were going for a walk, The phone then decided to freeze, so this is all I got.
However, last Sunday and Saturday I did carry a camera. It helps: particularly when chasing light. In this case, all were taken with a D800
First set taken with Motorola X phone: second set with D800, processed in Darktable
Yes, one of htese shots is the same as yesterday, same size… but instead of being taken with a D800 and a 0 mm lons, the other with a 10-100 CX lens that gives the equivalent of 300 mm reach.
A CX camera can shoot raw, you can use the same workflow, and it can, within likits produce good photos. But it is much lighter. The advantage of using the Nikon one series over the alternative (such as the Sony RX 100 camera) is that you can use a prime lens (there are fast ones) and a superzoom: you don’t have as many compromises with glass. And the glass, now that the V series is not being promoted, is becoming cheap. The system is smaller than the similar options for a micro 4/3 and as a little more pixels.
THis is my current travel solution: the previous one was a Ricoh GXR.
