Quickly decided to take some shots of the back of the building using the PC-E. Unfortunately I forgot that the D2x is not suited for the lens (you cannot shoot anything else but open aperture, so f3.5). Anyways, tried my best using the manual focus with the viewfinder and, before it started raining again, her’s a […]

Another set of pictures from Cuxhaven’s landmark; this time using the Nikkor PC-E on my D7200. No sunrise, no sunset, just later the day. In the first image I tilted by about 4° down and shifted the lens up. Due to the tilt, the whole foreground was in focus – very nice. Exactly why I […]
An older image I took back in Summer 2012 when visiting NYC. I always had it in color but after converting to b/w, it really comes out nice. It is very well suited for print on a Baryta paper.
The targeted 160 prints are reached. The printer still has the setup cartridges in use. In the meantime 10 out of 12 cartridges with the remark “low ink” are listed in the overview, but still filled with at least 5%. Time to do an interim conclusion … The costs and expenditures stated below are, of course, related […]
First test of the Nikkor 24mm f3.5 PC-E. As I had only my D7200 available I did only 2 images one without any tilt or shift and another one using the shift for a panorama shot (portrait mode – three images).
Good but not brillant weather for another look at Cuxhaven’s Kugelbake area for some seafowl. Some Ruddy Turnstones around at the jetty. Shots were taken with the D500 and the Nikkor 200-400 (with and without TC-14).
Skyfire had a 60% chance of nice sunrise. However, that did not happen as I thought. Anyways some morning shots of the location using the D800 and the Zeiss 18mm lens.
Short test of the Irix f2.4 on my D800. The result was not what I was looking for and what was stated on diverse websites. I sent it back next day. While I was testing the Irix 15mm f2.4 using my D800 I started the D7200 and it do a timelapse.
