Update

8 Jan

Spent a little while since I’ve written and written a little post but it’s been quite busy at work and I haven’t had a lot of time to go out and shoot in fact I have two brand-new lenses that I haven’t been properly broken and I’ve got the hundred millimeter macro which is quite and sat secondhand it’s an older macro I think it’s first GEN so there’s no ultrasonic order it’s quite noisy but still great image quality the second ones I got was the 24 to 70 F4L which is I think A superb lens but I’ve been so busy with work and other things I haven’t really had time to go out and shoot another new addition and this going back to one of my earlier posts as I got photo gloves which are actually very good -17 daythey at they don’t stand up to too much time outside but slightly warmer day it really does help being able to push buttons without any issue I remember going out with big ski gloves and only wanting to review an image and and said I would press the info button or press trash button or and I would have to take my gloves off anywaysso anyways I have started carrying my camera with me to work every single day is a never know if I’ll have time to go out and shoot or something might happen or something might catch my my eye on my way to work I think the last actual photo walk I want time is probably back in October baby so it’s been a while and I’ve kind of gotten into the habit of always thought that was kind like people who love jogging after work and it’s too cold it’s late where all sorts of silly excuses and if it’s been an unusually long day I’m not really motivated to hop on the subway or at the bus and go and shoot somewhere however tomorrow I have the day off and next week I have three days off in a row so I am planning to go and shoot all four days we’ll see how that works I’m not sure about all four days but I do have a couple new pieces of gear that I need to tryouts what are the other new updates so I have been dabbling in mirrorless again this time with Fujifilm trying to the XM1 And xe1 both are really really nice Cameron’s I really didn’t have any bad things to say about any anywhere them the one downside to that is you can’t shoot quietly you can’t turn off the click at least for the XE-1 so I actually swap those for the X100S that is a really nice camera that I actually traded that one in for the 24 to 70 F for Boxing Day sale but really worth itI really am enjoying the few images that I gotten out of this lens a few of them are kind of boring and not really worth much but over the next couple of weeks I should be able to get out and shoot with them without properly and the onehundred millimeter macro is also going to be one lens that I try it because I have yet to put it through a photo walk yet I haven’t really had much time today give it a try but hopefully it’ll go well I guess another update would also be that at the beginning of the month I shot a little bit with a Nikon D 3200 and that was all right it it had its flaws and things that I just couldn’t get around so I wound up returning it but I enjoyed the higher resolution and thedownsides to it and this is primarily to do with the class of camera that it happens to be in number one the viewfinder was very small and the information inside the view finder and that where it says your aperture shutter speed at exposure compensation and things. Like that it was very dark and maybe I’m just used to the 7D maybe I’m just spoiled with it’s much bigger brighter viewfinder but I do remember my rebelX TI having slightly nicer viewfinder than that D 3200 that I used but it was good and add a couple of the upsides to it and it was small lightweight extremely portable very easy to use fairly easy to navigate the menus. The kit lens was just your standard fare. See you at all so I’ve been shooting with 8 mm bower fisheye lens that was really cool and I got lots of fun shots with that lens and keep you very long only for a long weekend but got lots of fun shots and I got some nice astrophotography but it just wasn’t something I can see myself using on a regular basis so it just wasn’t for me anyways that’s my post for nowno guarantee that I’ll keep this up but hopefully I’ll be back to post again in a couple months
