Wait it’s actually F/1.1 (but gives much better sharpness at F/2)
My normal camera kit which fits in a very small & light bag is:
- Sony Nex 7 (APS-C)
- 4 batteries (enough for around 2 days of busy holiday shooting)
- Kamlan 50mm F/1.1
- Sony 16mm F/2.8 pancake
- Sony 55-210mm F/4.5-6.3 zoom
And I can fit a 4th small lens in too if I really want (I have a kit zoom 18-55mm, 35mm macro, and a fisheye adapter)
@s0 I think thats one of the cameras they use on Kitten Academy - I keep planning to treat myself to a "proper" camera (rather than just using my mobile phone); although currently motor cars are burning a hole in my wallet...
@vfrmedia it’s not a bad camera except for mediocre low-light performance and limited video capability (cuts out at 30mins of recording for some reason)
@s0 thanks, now I know my next lens will have to be something vintage with the widest aperture I can find :>
@f0x I can recommend the modern repros over the vintage ones because their grease perishes & fucks the mechanisms
@f0x I bought a Jupiter 3 but it’s unusable because you just can’t shift the focus ring without also unscrewing the screw mount… bayonet mounts were a good idea
