Large Sensor + Fine Lens =


Photos: DOMAI © "Maker" 2006

One of my photographers just acquired the new Sony R1 (the first "bridge" camera with a large sensor). It is famed for the excellent Zeiss lens. I can see why. Above are two samples (click on the images to see them larger).

So you post pics of a naked girl then expect me to look at lens sharpness? Heheheh.

Granted, the pic doesn't offend me and I'm not going to engage in an obscenity debate...but there may be a few crotchety IT admins who don't think this is "proper" content who could cause problems with people surfing TOP at work/school who stumble on this. I've seen people get in trouble for less.

I teach at the secondary level, and I can tell you that everything from blogspot.com is already blocked. So this blog is a night time treasure.

If nudes were the problem, then this blog was banned long ago for the nude Monroe :).

Are you into photography or...please, the unmade bed , the teddy bear, the innocence of the model, and the way her eyes are challenging the camera, the morning sun, does anyone think of tonalities,sharpness, come on , get real , theres nudes that are truly fine art, this is not, be thankful it´s not my daughter...
And no , in this case, it´s not in the eye of the beholder.
You would never publish a pic. of a boy, barely teenage, in the same setting, with his willy half showing, to illustrate the capabilities of a camera...

I'm really surprised at all these comments. Here in Quebec (that's the french speaking part of Canada for the geographicaly impaired) pictures like this are considered totally inocuous. Heck, they could be used to sell yogurt on prime time TV, and in France it's even "worse / better" !

Frankly, blame it on cultural differences, but I think this is nothing to write home about


BTW, nice dynamic range, the depth of field on the second picture is interesting and it shows little distortion at a wide angle.

I also like the fact that the camera can be silent. Now if Sony would give it a remouvable lens and make a fiew quick prime...

Yeah, the pictures are innocuous, but that's the problem. Nothing that couldn't be done with any other DSLR out there.

But, um, it's NOT a DSLR. That's the whole point.

The picture itself looks rather ordinary.

The dynamic range looks rather average. Almost blown out whites and I can’t see any detail south of the bed (maybe it’s this monitor at work… Oh my good, I’m AT WORK…Aahhhhh….)

The posters worrying about their jobs, well… Zzzz

Speaking of coincidences - this post with - ohmygosh! - a very harmless nude, followed shortly by another post commemorating Edward Weston's birthday. Weston, of course, produced a large number of photographs of nude women. These darn artists!
