29th December 2013 – Conwy, Gwynedd
Today, a rare quiet and sunny day, we ventured to Conwy a pretty small town on the outskirts of the Snowdonia National Park. My Fuji X-E2 was the property of “management” for the morning while I took a roll of 35mm B&W film in my Olympus OM-2SP. Conwy is a stunningly beautiful place and with so much to photograph, but today the tide was running out of the estuary we decided to concentrate on the harbour.
18-55mm – 1/350@f8 – ISO250 – Focal length 33.8mm
18-55mm – firstname.lastname@example.org – ISO200 – Focal length 22.3mm
18-55mm – 1/280@f8 – ISO200 – Focal length 34mm
18-55mm – 1/60@f8 – ISO400 – Focal length 38mm
18-55mm – 1/220@f8 – ISO200 – Focal length 36mm
18-55mm – 1/550@f8 – ISO200 – Focal length 55mm
18-55mm – 1/250@f8 – ISO200 – Focal length 55mm
18-55mm – 1/350@f8 – ISO200 – Focal length 36mm
18-55mm – 1/320@f8 – ISO200 – Focal length 36mm
Considering this was the first time “management” had handled the camera I think the images are extremely credible and demonstrates that someone with a novices experience in camera techniques can handle the technicalities. The one thing that she does have is a much better “eye” than I. She absolutely loves this camera, but will I be allowed to use it now! My next post will be next year and I hope to report on my/our latest aquisition, the Fujifilm 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 R LM OIS X-Mount Lens.
After a great morning, a visit to one of Conwy’s many cafe’s for Bara Brith (a local traditional Welsh cake) and a pot of tea. The tea was excellent and the cake was good, but my wife makes better Bara Brith.
Watch this space and for now have a very happy New Year 🙂
