Hiking the Haselstein and the Center of Central Europe

On this hike I car­ried with me three cam­er­as — maybe I should stay at one per hike only, as weight is always an issue. The film one was a Con­tax G2 with its Carl Zeiss Biogon 2.8/28mm attached. I loaded a Kodak Ultramax 400. After the second image the cam­era stopped work­ing due to…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Hasel­stein and the Cen­ter of Cent­ral Europe

Hiking the Waldnaabtal

On this hike I used two cam­er­as. The film one was a Con­tax G2 with its Carl Zeiss Biogon 2.8/28mm attached. I loaded a Kodak Ultramax 400. The digit­al one was a Sony A7R2 with a M39 Voigtländer Col­or-Heli­ar 2.5/75mm attached. I loaded … a pretty cool sensor ;) The full album can be seen…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Hik­ing the Waldnaabtal

The Beauty and the Beast III

From time to time I take a pic­ture show­ing two cam­er­as side by side where I think it’s worth it. The first and the second image can be found here, show­ing two Can­on bod­ies (a Can­on EOS 3 vis-a-vis a Can­on EOS 5D) and two Con­tax bod­ies (a Con­tax Aria vis-a-vis a Con­tax AX). This…… Con­tin­ue read­ing The Beauty and the Beast III

This Amaryl­lis is going on now since Christ­mas and it’s still not at it’s end. As I’m cur­rently exper­i­ment­ing with a Sony A7R2 and old glass, I had…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Home­land — Amaryllis

The Beauty and the Beast …

Some time ago I pos­ted an image of two beau­ti­ful cam­er­as — the Can­on EOS 3 vs the Can­on EOS 5D. Without all fur­ther com­ments, these two cams are beau­ti­ful tools from two dif­fer­ent worlds — one ana­log and one digit­al. So sim­il­ar on one side and so dif­fer­ent on the oth­er side.
