I’ve been following your site for a longtime now. I think you have a very well-built idea on the internet cause it focus on everything an amateur photographer could want. Good photos and free open-minded reviews.
I wanted to share some of the images I made during last year’s vacations to Barcelona (2011).
I took along two cameras so I could use them depending on the situation. A Nikon D200 (had a D700 but sold it as soon as I heard about a “possible” D600, so I could still make some money) and a NEX 5. I wanted to use the Sony camera mainly at night where I couldn’t / not wanted to carry the extra weight. After the travel and even tough I know what a D700 can do (image quality / high iso capability) I became even more fan of the mirrorless concept. The possibility to achieve quality images with such a small package is simply amazing. The NEX cameras can keep a low profile (vs reflex) and have such a fantastic performance. Acceptable AF, good high ISO and splendid IQ. I ended up shooting with the NEX 5, 80% of the time. I think images speak for themselves.
(see barcelona photos) – all made with Sony nex5 and E 16mm
This year’s vacations images in Djerba (2012) were all done with NEX. Different style. It’s very difficult to take photos in a country where the tradition still is very harsh. People don’t like being photographed so I had to settle with more pleasing images (postcard style – ;-)) which I’m also very amused of.
(see djerba photos) – all made with Sony nex5, E 16mm and E 18-55mm (black version – made in Japan) plus underwater case.
