Street Photography on the Southbank with the Fuji X-E1 | Al Power

Street Photography on the Southbank with the Fuji X-E1 | Al Power | Photographic Gear | Scoop.it

A few weekends ago I popped up to see Pacific Rim on the IMAX in Waterloo, and thought I would try and get a spot of street photography in down at the Southbank by the river. The lovely thing about the Southbank is the sheer variety of people you see wandering about, and while I'm still working on my confidence in terms of approaching people for photos, there is certainly a lot of scope for getting some great shots. I thought I would round up a few of the shots that I took, and do a bit of a breakdown on the settings I used and reasons why, so others can hopefully benefit. The great thing about street photography is that it doesn't need any fancy equipment or even expensive lenses - photos usually have a deep depth of field, so any lens will do, and whether you use a zoom lens or just use a prime and zoom with your feet is up to you.

Use a small camera

I was using a Fuji X-E1 as it's smaller than the average dSLR, and doesn't draw much attention to itself, so I could walk around with it on, and just lift it to my face, compose and fire in a matter of seconds. If you have a digital camera (or film for that matter) that can be set to manual mode then all the following applies, but for street photography, I would advise a smallish camera.....

Upcoming Sony NEX-5R to Use Phase Detect AF at Pixel Level

Upcoming Sony NEX-5R to Use Phase Detect AF at Pixel Level | Photographic Gear | Scoop.it

Posted by Eric Regan on August 16, 2012

 

"The Sony NEX line is already knocking it out of the park, so this news comes as icing on the cake. SonyAlphaRumors.com has good word that the upcoming Sony NEX-5R (which will replace the NEX-5N) will sport a new 16MP CMOS sensor with phase detection AF sensors built as pixels directly on the sensor.

For those unfamiliar with the tech, phase detection AF is what’s used in all DSLRs; however, most mirrorless cameras to date have featured a contrast detection AF method. The contrast AF system has gotten better in recent years – with Sony, Panasonic and Olympus doing a bang-up job of making it much faster in the latest models. However, if you’ve used both a DSLR and a mirrorless camera, then you know that DSLRs just focus faster. . .  and that’s due to phase detection AF."

Mobile madness? Our opinion on Sony's QX clip-on cameras: Digital Photography Review

Mobile madness? Our opinion on Sony's QX clip-on cameras: Digital Photography Review | Photographic Gear | Scoop.it

The Sony QX cameras are mobile-photography-targeted modules that allow you to clip a larger sensor, zoom lens and additional battery to your smartphone to extend its capabilities. The modules use a Wi-Fi connection to allow their control from a camera app - making them some of the most connected cameras yet. So just what to we make of the compact 10x QX10 and the larger-sensor QX100?

Year! Sony released a totally new type digital camera. Since the digital camera has not a monitor, so it looks like just lens. But it’s an authentic digital camera.

How to use the digital camera?
First, you can attach the camera on your smart phone.
Second, connect the camera and your smart phone with WiFi.
Finally, you can take a photo, using your smart phone as a monitor. The picture you took, you can obtain to smart phone’s photo library via WiFi.

Believe it or not, it is only 25,000 yen! Wow! Only Sony could have done it.
But actually, my smart phone is XPERIA Z, not Z1. So there is no shutter button.
