56: The Cheapest TILT LENS Ever! 65$

It's official now. I'm a terrible blogger, but I will try to make up for the silent months.

Over six months ago I bought Sony NEX and surprisingly it proved to be the best camera I have. I have recently purchased a 40$ tilt adapter for M42 lenses and a great M42 lens Cosinon 1.8/50 for 25$. This combo is really great and it allows me to make a whole lot of great photos each day. Just take a look at these snapshots and bear in mind that this great tilt lens cost me 65$!!! CHEAPEST TILT LENS EVER. Long live Sony NEX. (and other mirrorless, apart from the ones with tiny sensors)

Typical tilt miniaturization effect.

This lens has amazing bokeh and very little chromatic abberrations - both great for tilt use.
No particular purpose, just looks cool this way :)
The out of focus areas definitely add ambiance and build atmosphere.
This way you can pick out a subject and separate it from the background.
I was able to focus both on the background and the window I was looking through.

50: Long Time No Write; New Layout; New Camera

After writing the last entry I took quite a long time to recuperate. Let's face it, using this much brainpower to put words together hurts and writing the article badly damaged my unit (brain to be clear).

I will try to make updates more often now and just to make up for the lost time I totally redesigned the blog. Hope you like it.

A lot changed camera-wise: I BOUGHT A SONY NEX-5! This is the best camera ever. Didn't have a lot of time to test it thoroughly, but I already know that I will use it inseat of the two cameras that I usually carry around with me. Olympus XA series cameras and Nikon D90 will have to deal with it, because Sony NEX has the image quality and interchangeable lenses of a DSLR and the size of a compact camera.

The NEX came with a 16mm f/2.8 kit which is not bad at all, but I plan to use it with all the adaptors/lenes I can get. I have already bought a NEX>M39 adaptor to use an Industar-69 and I borrowed a TILT! adaptor for M42 lenses to use with my Raynox 35mm f/2.8. Of course, I will write about those in detail, but for now I've got some photos of the camera and lenses and several snapshots taken with those.
