My head hurts looking at the second photo. They just aren't supposed to look like that so I must be drunk. :p

Beautiful picture Tomme! What shutter speed and aperture did you use? What time of the night? What phase of the moon? (Where was the Moon during exposure?)
Thanks so much for sharing it!


Thank you, It was shot at 30sec at 14mm @ F2.8 and Iso 6400. It was taken around 7-8PM and the moon phase was third quarter rising up at 10-11PM.

When I first saw that picture my immediate thought was the location is in high altitude or high latitude! Now I realise you are from Norway.... lovely country, I believe!! Been planning a trip there last 2 yrs to shoot Puffins, maybe A. Borealis but alas still a plan.
Looks like 14mm kept the stars pinpoint. 85mm and 30 secs gives a trail. Thank you again!

The photo is actually taken in Australia ( Airlie Beach ), im staying here ( Brisbane ) until june as im visiting my GF, she is studying here so.

Yes! Norway is a beautiful place, I actually live in the northern Norway so I get to see the borealis every winter, its best seen in the very cold months of jan-march as its usually very clear skies at that time.. It is a shame that I have never been to Lofoten to photograph ( WONDERFUL PLACE ! ) its just 4 hours with boat from where I live, but I plan to go there in the winter of 2015/16 :)

There Is a rule that is called : "500 Rule", on fullframe divide 500 with your focal length, example 500/14mm = 35.7sec is as long as you can go without getting star trails.

Such clear skies in Brisbane? I would have never thought so given the monsoons should be around now... lucky you!
Thanks for that 500 rule tip, shall keep it in mind.
You plan a trip to Lofoten in winter '15/16? Some long term planning that! Wish you a nice holiday and thanks again!

I have not used the metabones adapter for Canon lenses for about two weeks and now it will not autfocus, could it be a menu setting, now I focus manually with th magnification and peaking. is there a setting that forces auto focus?

solution is setting the adapter to green rather than advanced by pushing the small button while attaching the lens in the adapter on the camera.


Cheers,

Im considering downsizing to one of these - weight is a problem for my arms these days... as much as its great, I dont no longer need the advanced AF on the 5D Mark III and shoot primarily landscapes nowadays.

I was planning on keeping my TS-E 24 Mark II and 16-35 II to use with it

Cant help thinking Im crazy though?

Anyone done similar and regretted it?

For landscape; I'd probably sell the 16-35 II for the new 16-35 f/4 IS. Save weight and gain some sharpness.

my buddy who used to be a Nikon shooter (D3s, D4, D800), moved to Leica and now his go to landscape combo is the A7 and TS-E 17mm and he's really happy with it, sharp on all corners.

check these pictures out that he took with the combo

makes me want to get a TS-E 17mm so bad but I don't want to spend that much money + accessories yet and so far I'm happy with my OM 21mm 3.5 as my wide angle lens

I now shoot landscapes with 17-40 and 24-105 on the A7r and I noticed that keeping the Canon lenses would not help that much in reducing weight..the camera weight difference is not that big, the reduce size comes with the smaller lenses. For walkabouts I like the A7r with the Sony 55 and Leica elmarit 28 small lenses. I plan to get the Sony 24-70, and the rumored Sony 17-40.

For landscape work the TSE and 16-35 would work well, but still heavy.

Thanks, yeah Im going to get the 55, but at the moment keeping my 16-35 is a must until I figure out a UWA alternative.

any alternative to the Metabones III adapter?... hard to find in stock in the UK without paying nearly £400.

Anyone use the 50 1.2 on it?

Anyone got a decent wireless remote to use with this too with an intervalometer on?.. I love my Hahnel Giga T pro , but just had an email off them saying the Sony version is not compatible with this A7/R
