No place is boring, if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.  ~Robert Adams

November. No snow yet here in Fredrikstad, Norway. This  month I’m using both my Canon 5D / Zeiss 35mm combo and my Ricoh GR ( digital mk V APS-C 2013 ) compact point and shoot . Have now sold my Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art because I always prefered my Zeiss 35mm and never used the Sigma much, dont miss it at all.  My Ricoh GR is even better than I hoped for.  A good camera in every way. Solid and excellent picture quality. Use it a lot.
Also testing some low budget gear like Canon 450D ( Digital Rebel XSi / Kiss X2 Digital ) and Canon 650D ( known as Kiss X6i in Japan and Rebel T4i in USA).  Cheap Canon lenses as 50mm 1.8 and Sigma 70-300 tested with these cheaper Canon bodies.

Trying out some low budget gear this moth. Borrowed a Canon 650D + Sigma 70-300 first.

Canon 650D with Sigma 70-300. Exif: f5.6, ISO 2500.  2500/1 sec shutterspeed,  and -1/3 exposure. A tricky handheld @300mm.
Had to get the high shutterspeed to get the boat sharp. f5,6 was fastest apperture possible and ISO 2500 was lowest i got here.

ulf-greger-2013-carl-zeiss-distagon 2-35-0019At the vet. The dog was seriously injured. Because of the blood converted to B&W. Used my Carl Zeiss T* Distagon 2/35 ZE that is manual focus only. Was a little shaky because had carried and lifted the heavy dog. But felt like post this picture anyway as it is a snapshot of one of my days in life. Yes I alwas carry my SLR with me and yes I love the Carl Zeiss. Also still got the Sigma 35 1.4 Art -but there is no magic like the Zeiss.

Always been a SLR user as main system. Ability to use different high quality lenses and hook up external flashguns / triggers and studio equipment has become my preferred way to work with photography. But for street photography I sometimes want to use a small compact. And always had one in my jacket. Here is my digital compact history.. READ MORE HERE.
