NX200 vs NEX-5n vs EOS 550D (vs ZR100) ZOO 2
Therefore I am able to post only 2 shots from yesterday evening with Samsung, which I took with first adapter, just to see how it works. Attached lens is Canon FD 50 f1.2 (not L), and it is clear that my shutter speed was too low, because of the subject movement. But it can give an idea of what this lens is capable of with Samsung in terms of ISO (1600) DOF and bokeh. Shots are JPEG straight from the camera. After trying today Sony Nex-5n in Zoo, I have to say once more, that the “peak” AF assistance is of a great help. As you can see in the first picture here, I miss-judged the focus with Samsung, which seems to be on the top of the nose. Second attempt was slightly better.
In the ZOO today, therefore I used only Sony NEX-5n with 3 Canon FD lenses – FD 50f1.2, FD 85 f1.8 and FD 300 f4L.
It is a winter time here, so most of the animals are hidden inside, and the day time is very short. I took a chance to stay longer in the pavilion for Indian Gavials, which are fascinating animals. Most of the shots were taken at ISO 1600 and 3200, wide open.
I would like to pretend that I took those shots in the wild, but hey, you won’t believe me anyway 🙂
There was a thick glass between me and crocodiles. Luckily it was somewhat cleaned, and not many visitors were around, so it didn’t cause many problems.
I have to say that I am truly impressed with results in such conditions.
