Thank you, John.  The silver grass was shot with the wide open.  The purple fringing in the tree is actually not visible when the RAW file is 100% magnified in Capture One Express.  I don't know why the fringing appears when the image is converted and resized to jpeg...

As for the Touit 1.8/32, I really like the classical character when it is set wide open and its warmer tone.

Sometimes it is all right to indulge in a bit of "luxury". To wit, my ordered "Lichen Candelaris" hand-crafted 14X loupe arrived today. Complete with a sampler of Swiss chocolate ...  The brain-child of a retired Swiss watch-maker, the loupe has superb optics and is extremely well finished in satin chrome, with complimentary laser-engraving of owner's name (and phone number). It is also very expensive, but worth every Swiss franc I paid for it. The package included spare batteries, dedicated screw driver for the battery compartment, and even a spare lanyard!

Already looking forward to the next field season :D

I always like your color compositions, and this is no exception.

I would suspect that the bottom part of the frame is shadowed by the mechanical second curtain.  The problem of the EFCS is that the first curtain is on (or even "in") the sensor whereas the second curtain is "over" the sensor.  The slit has to be very narrow when you set the shutter that fast, and there always is danger of the second curtain to cast its own shadow over the image frame, especially along the edge where the image forming light hits the sensor in a more oblique angle.

Also, the EFCS may cause the inconsistent exposure, due to the fact that there is a discrepancy between the widths of the slit at the starting point and at the ending point.  The slit is wider at the starting point and narrower at the ending point.

The EFCS of Olympus cameras is switched automatically to fully mechanical at 1/320 sec. or so and faster, even if you select the EFCS in the menu, presumably for the very reason.

Post by: golunvolo on October 06, 2019, 23:44:50
Thak you Akira.

  Still wonder if it is a problem? The camera allows it so I guess it was possible. I have use the efc before at full throttle and it is the first time I notice the effect. Will try some speed combinations with clear skies as soon as possible to see the extent of this behavior

Paco, to me, the EFCS makes more sense for the macro/closeup photography where slightest shake of he camera can ruin the image, especially the camera is lighter.

Also, the ECFS should help reduce the shutter lag, because there is no need for the mechanical first curtain to close before the shutter runs.  According to the test by Imaging Resources, the response of EFCS on Z is about 10msec. faster than the mechanical on Z6.  Sony cameras are more benefited from the EFCS in this regard.

The pure electronic shutter should not suffer from the uneven exposure problem of EFCS.  The lag of EFCS Sony mirrorless cameras is amazingly short (about 20msec, according to Imaging Resources).

I've gotten the Z6 to give me partial frames, with the lower portion, up to half, being black with a color tear in orange or blue hues.  Only happened in silent shooting continuous at high ISOs.  Been meaning to make a thread showing it and send it to Nikon.  Will try to tomorrow when home.

It is a fantastic performer.  Devoid of all CA and great performance across the frame.  Even extreme corners are pleasant, doesn't have the longitudinal CA and general smearing that tends to make UWA images unpleasant.  Build quality is top notch, and the flexibility of having 12/2.8 or 17/4 shift means there really is no competition.  I hope to get around to posting a review sometime.  Perhaps after I return from Poland.

Currently Birna spend her days in Duckweed Land. So many samples to sort and sift through ... I did discover a species new to my country though, thus the efforts aren't completely wasted although the photographic output is -- well -- documentary in style. They serve their designated purpose and that pays the bills.

A snapshot of a corner of my work table aka dinner table at present should illustrate the point. Semi-organised chaos reigns supreme.

I'm really looking forward to the NG Meet-up in the Hague in a few weeks' time. Hm. The canals there have a lot of duckweeds in them. Must resist. Or at least, try my best...

I think that your result is very fine, like the idea that the lamp is the source of light on the moon ;)

Paco, I like this "moon lit by streetlight" effect works!


Currently Birna spend her days in Duckweed Land. So many samples to sort and sift through ... I did discover a species new to my country though, thus the efforts aren't completely wasted although the photographic output is -- well -- documentary in style. They serve their designated purpose and that pays the bills.

Glad your effort has paid off, Birna.

You are always excused -- the first time. Do post these in a Nikon z-related thread. There are plenty of them to be found. Interesting factory insights, by the way. Seeing an engine "in the nude" like this makes me wonder the airplane keeps itself safely in the air at all.

I do, its been on my camera a lot, its a huge hunk of glass in a plastic barrel, the hood is but flimsy.
You may look into the sigma 105/1.4 as well which has excellent reviews, is a third cheaper in price, but significantly bigger.

Looks good. So the 50/1.8s without an adapter is a different kind of experience?

  Will you like to try it in a couple of weeks ?  :)

Exactly. A cross-section of the stem of the plant. It is compressed laterally to increase its tensile strength - an adaptation well suited for a plant  colonising seabed subject to wave action.

Thanks Sten.  AF performance is pretty good on the FTZ if you stay within the 3m-infinite range.  Comparable with the performance on the D850. 

The lens is wide open pretty sharp as well, very clean images, to my surprise.  Extra functional on the Z6 with the IBIS

When you live in the woods, those woods encroach on your home and yard relentlessly. A deterrent to this is knowing a good arborist. I know one and his team came this week to cut back and prune, clear out dead and dying trees and generally let in some more light. Here this young man cleaned up the damage done to branches of an oak caused by a microburst we had last summer. This should make the tree stronger and provide me a clearer view from my second floor bedroom window from where this shot was taken.

Another duckweed picture. This time UV-induced fluorescence (UVIF). Nikon Z7, 60mm f/2.8 Micro, Nichia LED. Approx. 1:1 (life-size).

The duckweed community here comprises Spirodela polyrhiza (largely dead this time of the year), its turions (very much alive as they are starch-filled and will eventually sink to the lake floor to overwinter there), Lemna minor, L. minuta, and numerous seeds of a wetland plant I believe is Filipendula ulmaria.
