Hey,

Great shots, I especially like the compostions you chose. The village shots make me want to walk through the streets! :D Really not much to criticize, good job! Thanks for posting! BTW, could you tell us where they were taken?

For answer to your question these photos have been taken in the south ouest of France. The touristy village is naming 'Cordes' and attract a lot of photographers all along the year.

I've added a new image showing stars in the sky. This image is a composition of 4 photos staked and centered on the stars. That explains why the horizon is blurred and not the stars.

I love my V3....I just bought the Sony D680RM Tripod and took my first ever Nite Shot. It was 10 pm, and I ran outside with the tripod and camera and took a pic of the neighbors across the street to see the capability. Im still learning, but I want to get away and learn other that just point and shoot! I think I set the shutter to like 5 seconds...I forget now.

Like you, i love the sony v3: very fast for a compact, good colors rendering, good control of the noise for a 7MP, pleasant to use, up to 30s exposure time, large LCD screen, ... :)

I love the photos, not only for the great quality, but, also, because i was stationed in Germany for 5 yrs. I took pictures wherever i went, and i loved walking through streets and towns very similar to the photos you have in your gallery. Sorry to say, all my cameras and pictures were stolen on the trip back to the U.S. I have just recently gotten back into photography, Thanks for bringing back memories of those fantastic towns. hope to see more. :)

Curious, what where the settings, or did you have it on auto for the last 2 pics jeff?

For the pear tree blossom the settings were: aperture priority, f/3.5, 1/1000s, focal length = 9.9mm, 100 iso, center metering mode, macro, no flash, no tripod

For the butterfly the settings were: aperture priority, f/4, 1/250s, focal length=21.5mm, 100 iso, center metering mode, macro, no flash, no tripod.

I use very rarely the full auto mode.

Another pic ?

Super shot GVales !
Curious i've gone and seen the exif information of your image. It has been taken in full auto ?! 1/60s, f/3.5, 120 iso, focal length = 18.1mm, with flash
The flash does a very good job in macro !

GVales
04-04-2005, 03:46 PM
The little rascal above was in full auto I believe!

How do you extract the exif info from those shots, seeing that the shots have been resaved and cropped by PS CS?

2nd edit....

OK wow...I didn't know you could do that...I just did a little search on google and downloaded an app to view it all! Is there any real good Exif apps that more people use?

3rd edit....

Ok...man I'm learning like wildfire now....I know there is sooo much about Photoshop I dont know...I just found how to view the exif info! I sorta feel stupid now!

But here's a question....when you manipulate an image, does it distort or make inaccurate exif info? Or once imbedded, its not changeable...or Im sure there's a way to manually edit it?

jeff31
04-05-2005, 10:11 AM
Some softwares could deleted your exif data by saving. But "good" softwares leave these data intact and allow you to add anothers for your own needs.

Here is a pic using the Sony VCL-DEH07VA Wide Lense on. I was gonna take a comparitive, but I was at work, got some runs (I work for the City Fire Dep.), and I forgot!

http://img191.echo.cx/img191/1303/dsc001005ws.jpg

Here's another pic...(I believ without he wide lense)...

http://img191.echo.cx/img191/8663/dsc001082sx.jpg


EDIT****

Ok, I found a comparision to the wide lense...I forgot I took this one messing aroung a few days prior, nevermind the long exposure, just wanted you to get idea of the capability of the lense...you can see the difference now. Be aware the pic above was also taken in 3:2 and both images are reduce to 45%.

Perhaps by reducing the aperture to f/7.1 and fixing the autofocus to the infinite. Personnaly i'd try to take this one at different aperture size and compare the results.

GVales
04-18-2005, 07:59 PM
I really have to calibrate photoshop to work on the pics, the colors are so far off that I hate looking at the pictures!!!

I'm still unhappy with my shots, but here's a sample....

Quick question...should I be in as dark of a place as I can to take this pic, because I'm on a bridge that is heavily lit? Will the lights near me affect the picture?

This paticular pic is shutter priority for 2 secs, f2.8 I think, ISO 100 infinite focus. Should I use a higher apeture setting to get a sharper pic? Seems like alot of purple fringing too?

I also just figured out when a trator trailer crosses a bridge...it shakes...no matter how big the bridge is! Sorta screws up my long exposures!

The RAW one looks better, more natural as its becoming my preferred format. Try stopping the aperture down a bit to say f/11.

I've put these flies on a sunny wall. Apparently, the fly seems to take a siesta in the sunshine. :D
The sony v3 has a minimal focus length of 10cm. I think these ones have been taken at a distance of 15/20 cm with zoom. So the fly are not frighten and could continue to sleep. :rolleyes:

So it must be able to zoom whilst in macro mode then - my little oly gets down to 3cm but only at 38 (wide) fixed focal length - I dom't think the image would come up that big. Well done for some mega shots!!

I would love to see the shots of the moon taken with the camera through the telescope. Dont they make a T adapter so that you can connect your camera to the telescope? That would completely eliminate the vignetting and result in fantastic long range shots.

I've already some interessting shots of the moon taken with my telescope and a webcam. No doubt that the sony v3 will be better on bright object like the moon.

Definite improvement. No vignetting at all and very good close-ups. How far away were you?

Jeff, are you doctoring up those shots? Or are they as taken?

jeff31
04-27-2005, 12:20 PM
Yes Gvales, a lot of of these have been doctoring up in post processing (sharpness enhancement, automatic level).

I've tried this begining of the week some landscape shots. I found more difficult to have a detailed landscape than to have a close-up photo. I don't know why but the image seem always a little burred in the automomatic focusing mode.

Here some new shot of a tourist village in the south of the France:

2 new flowers taken in their own environment with a blue paper in background. After, the blue color has been simply replaced by the black or the white color in Photoshop.

I don't know the name of the first flower. The second one is of course a tulip at the end of its life.

Gvales, i agree that this sky is too black and too empty. :o Stars give an another dimension to the pic but we have the impression to be on antoher planet. :p particularly with the earth in place of the moon :p

Perhaps by taking this pic at twilight may allow me to show some clouds to fill this sky.

Take an old 50 mm lens, reverse it and put it in the front of the V3 and you may obtain that:

That is a great shot! Thanks for sharing that!
I guess I should try out the Super macro on the Oly a bit more...Don't think it would match that though.

I've bought finaly the Raynox CM-3500 lens to take very close-up pics.
My first tests today are over my hopeness.

How does the lense attach?

jeff31
05-14-2005, 02:23 AM
Gvales, you could have more information on the CM-3500 on this page : http://www.raynox.co.jp/english/35mmacc/egcm2000.htm

The kit is provided with an universal adapter. I've need to bought the Sony VAD-VHA lens adapter to mount the Raynos universal adapter.
The combinaison works very well for a reasonable price.
You'll find below another test the two first ones are taken with flash. Like you can see the build in flash does a good job.
The pics below are taken with the 6x raynox lens, they have only been resized without any post processing.
