Thank you for the compliment.
Picture shot with my new toy: Cheap Chinese Android smartphone for EUR 179,- incl. shipping which is equipped with a Sony IMX230 21MP sensor and a 3.5mm/F2.2 lens.
I've used the standard camera app. in RAW/DNG mode at ISO 100, converted in LR6 and downsized for presentation.
IMHO a very good investment as it delivers stunning pictures more than good enough for presentation on screens and obviously indistinguishable from pictures shot with real cameras when shooting RAW. Unfortunately it's only equipped with a fixed ultra-wide angle lens which restricts somehow the usage, but at least for landscape that's not bad at all.
Shot yesterday afternoon during my dog walk close to sun down (all clickable for larger view). This time the aspect ratio has been changed to 2:3:
Even at night it's able to produce some usable results:
#4 (original 4:3 aspect ratio)
IMHO far better than expected and qualifies as my spare camera which is always with me.
Manual Focus Lenses 24x36: Mainly from Minolta, Pentax, Voigtlaender, Leitz, Topcon and from Russia amongst others (Too many to list here).
Digital Cameras able to adopt these lenses: Sony A850 and NEX-C3, Pentax K20D, Panasonic Lumix GF1 and Ricoh GXR Mount A12.
Many film cameras for above mentioned lenses and medium format cameras and lenses (6x9, 6x7, 6x6 and 4,5x6)
