So I know it’s been silent for me for a long time - I didn’t contribute as much and didn’t upload anything over the last years.
The main reason was that I had too much to do and because I was under constant stress and pressure for the most time learning new stuff writing exams and also jumping my own shadow /hurdles and personal matters.
But I’m almost done with all of that and I almost eliminated all of these problems which is huge.
Anyways back to the "I got myself a new camera" part
When I first looked for a nice starter camera I asked this very community for help and received some great great suggestions.
And quickly I found the Fuji HS25EXR to be a perfect introduction for me and for my personal purpose in use.
That Camera served me very well and is also posted some shots here on Wincustomize about it. Bridge camera with a DSLR like feel to it and also it behaves like a DSLR only that you can’t replace the lens but it is also a superzoom camera- well it was meanwhile Nikon p900 is the best superzoom but the picture quality is slacking.
If one would consider buying a cheap user friendly full control Beginner Bridge for Hickes and stuff the Fuji HS50EXR- HS30EXR is probably one of the best and cheapest that will provide good colors and great pictures for a small buck.
Even though my Fuji served me well I always wanted to have better greater picture quality, something that comes close to the pros.
No noise just straight baby butt smoothness. (It was a dream to be honest)
A quite expansive dream maybe not as expansive as wanting to own a Ford GT40 or a Shelby Cobra but it was also expansive.
DSLR`s remain quite expansive unless you buy an entry level DSLR...and in most cases those have that huge Body.
Don’t get me wrong I think it looks amazing to have a big camera with a huge Tele Lens attached to it.
But I always enjoyed small cameras because they serve me better since I often go on Hickes also have dog and therefore walk around a lot.
And it would´ve been too much of w cam for me to carry around all of the time, also i could not spare 4000k for the body and another 3-4 on prime lenses.
But i saved a little money over the time and finally spotted something beautiful.
I’m speaking of the Sony alpha series.
Those are DLSM cameras with a full frame sensor.
Jupp! SONY and Mirrorless
I got myself a Sony alpha 7 II with a stock lens kit and a 35mm prime Zeiss
small looks great feels right modern yet a hint of vintage.
+ functions like wireless transition of pictures directly to your phone, phone controled snapshots inbuild stabilizer and much more.
Great choice of bayonett adapters make it possible to attach all kinds of lenses even old ones and use them on the sony, or use canon nikon lenses on it.
Insanity for a "decent price" compared to the best and its currently the third best Camera on the market.Soon to be the forth since sony alpha7RII will be released but for double the price.
-Sadly i cannot tell you how the Zeiss is, since the salesman dropped it right in front of me in the store.
And not just a little drop, that thing flew over the counter, hit the floor and rolled across the whole shop and came to a stop underneath a heater.
My facial expression probably was speaking for itself, telling him “what the …. have you done
But after looking at him for two second and he just staring at me with a priceless facial expression that was like “ohh shit”” I just had to say “sorry but I’m not buying that in a polite tone”.
Still waiting for my Zeiss at this moment.
I wanted to post some pictures but it’s raining at the moment.
However I plan on taking it to a small trip this weekend and hopefully can show you some decent results from the kit lens then.
Note I will be keeping the Fuji since it’s a cool cam for Superzoom still.
Just wanted to share my excitement.
