Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1

Gave in to the temptation of a silly fast lens & picked up the Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1. I know it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of IQ, but what do you expect from a f/1.1 at this price point?


Haven’t really had a chance to properly try it out yet, except for a few snapsh!ts on the NEX-5N from behind the mixing desk at a gig last night.


St Andrews Freshers’ Week 2012 Balloon Drop

Something a little bit different, a still & video that I took of the balloon drop during the Friday night disco of Freshers’ Week at St Andrews this year.

Taken with the NEX 5N with the 16mm & IIRC set to 1600 ISO. Remember to choose 1080 from the YouTube menu if you want it ;)

Jose Gonzalez, St Andrews Students’ Union 24/09/2011 (preview)

Jose Gonzalez played a set at the St Andrews Union as part of Freshers Week 2011. I took a few photos from the projection room, high up the rear wall of the venue. Unfortunately my K20D has abysmal high-ISO performance & the only tele prime I have is a cheap 135mm f/2.8 so they didn’t come out too well. The lighting designer was rather good though, so they’re at least dramatic.

I’ll post a few more in a few days.
