Ginza, a major shopping area in Tokyo

Very clear !  With the Z6?   Peculiar, the darkness below 2 meter, I guess.  Gives a strange effect.

Yes, I’ve been using the Z6 almost exclusively lately while I learn how to use it best. This is taken with old Nikkor P.C Auto 105mm f/2.5, but the kit zoom is quite nice too.

No masking. For me the interesting thing about the shot is that the pedestrians block the light which is everywhere on that street. It is a sort of human eclipse. Usually the road is filled with cars and bright light.

very estranging effect. indeed.
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Thanks for the info Jack !  Do you feel it is an improvement over the Nikon Df, or a welcome addition?

I'm still learning how to use it best. The Df is so easy to pick up for someone like me who started out with film era nikons and I use it mostly with old MF lenses so setting focus, shutter speed, aperture etc. is quite instinctual.
With Z I'm having to learn how to use autofocus, front dial for aperture, work out viewfinder vs. rear screen, video, and how best to work with files. I'm not sure if it is just shooting conditions, but skies seem to be blown out more often than I like. Because of this, there is a higher level of effort and uncertainty. I expect this will change with practice, so that is what I'm doing. It definitely has some nice advantages - tilting rear screen (I've used this often to shoot from high and low angles) and zoomable display (so nice for manual focus) are very useful.

This is a mesmerizing image. Real but kind of unreal at the same time. Very good!
