Convertible II

    Newer Older

    I've driven a lot of them but I've never had one for a lens. Second of two shots made with exactly the same camera position and movements. One at 315mm and this one at 180mm.

      Wonderful reflection, and great details.

      Those high stratus clouds create a balanced framing of the shot superiorly in the sky and reflected in the water inferiorly. Nicely done.

      bc50099 Honestly, I wasn't looking at the sky. If I had, I might have broken out a filter. I was concentrating on the reflections in the water.

      I'm struck my how different the DoF is at the same aperture on the same convertible lens. The 315mm is much less in focus than I would normally want. But it was an interesting exercise.

      Tim L Lowe These convertible lenses are fascinating - never had the opportunity to use one. Very interesting results.

      Yes; go out and have fun, you are doing some fantastic work.
      Good lenses and relatively not that expensive anymore, see you like your new manageable 4x5 :-) 

      DelioTO To sacrifice all those nice movements for something that can be carried (including my fancy new tripod!) in a backpack with lots of room to spare is a good trade-off, I think. Also the much smaller boards are wonderful. And I have an adapter so that these broads will go on the monorail camera as well. And yes, now I have a good set of lenses and they didn't cost much. (Compare them to buying Zeiss for the Hasselblad!)

      Nice redo. The tonal range is spot on. Great detail really sells it.

      Lowell Schaefer Thanks. I don't know how I lived without a spot meter. I know when I toted along my D800 to use the spot metering mode on that camera, I got consistent exposures. I finally had to pop for a real meter.
