I’ve probably been to countless baby shower events. I absolutely stunning by the decorations and food preparation. The countless efforts to congrats the couple with their upcoming new member in the family. I am, as a good friend to the couple, not just a single bachelor, I often became the dedicate photographer since I am carrying around “bigger than compact” cameras. Nonetheless, the joy is in the air!
Over years I’ve been experienced with all kinds of brands, cameras, and lenses. I love the balance between craftsmanship, price, building quality and image quality. My gear of choice is always powerhouse camera, out of this world performance lenses, and a bit of better angle of taking photo “NEXT TIME”.. Which, I ironed out the possibility of been “bad photos is always gears’ fault”.
Needless to say, I love small cameras with tiny lenses that works wonders. They might not be a working horse to track down a bullet speed train or “BIGGER THE BETTER” lenses if that is what she says.. Often times, the render of image comes in a price is inevitable, but we can’t always trust name brand = quality as a norm. Hence, over years, I mixed all my love and hate, I picked up the weapon of choices for myself. Not for others, but for moei.
It doesn’t come to surprise that I have more than enough cameras and lenses in my past even I am just a hobbyist. My weapons of choice in APS-C DSLR would no doubt to be Pentax DSLRs. When it comes to travel in lightweight. I forced myself to move into MirrorLess Interchangeable systems. Here I found SONY NEX, and A7(R) to be the suitable solution.
But I didn’t forget about the fundamentals! Good enough camera is one thing, but lenses are equally important as the camera itself! I will not forget, it’s not just the camera that makes the magic, but also the lenses!!! LENSES are the one that really makes everything happens magically! YEAH! my lenses are pooping rainbows like nyan cat or the kidneyless unicorn Charlie.
Every lens I have owned have their special magic around them. They are probably not from the MTF20/50 to be the sharpest lenses in the world. They may not be the one cost 10x more than others because it has a red circle with Leica white print in it. They probably can’t make images that you can view Jessica Alba in 3D. To me, they are awesome lenses!! AWESOME can’t describe how good they are in real daily shooting situations. I’ll leave that thought up to you because you might use google to search reviews already! That’s just not what I am trying to say here.. I love them because they are AWESOME!! Like a father loves his kids, the unconditional love!
Don’t get me wrong! SONY NEX system is the most impressive, awesome system out there on the market!!! Yet it’s also the most retard camera system too! What makes me saying that? I’ll prove to you it’s one out standing system that beats almost everything out there by far! Yet! it can’t even master a simple thing right.
What makes it awesome?
- Most Compact APS-C sensor that has no mirror. It’s awesomeness basically makes you look down on all the DSLR systems out there. (It allows faster electronic shutters, no mirror flip issues, no vibrations, no shutter life time span issues..etc.. list goes on forever.)
- It’s compact and well-built (It allows you to adopt almost any camera systems out there but Panasonic / Olympus 4/3.)
- It has very well high ISO performance, low AA filter makes things just ultra sharp! (Equal to DSLRs if not better. It’s just million times better than 4/3 or any system that’s applying even more compact sensors.)
