Series E Nikon 28mm Lens and (other thoughts)

6 04 2010

Earlier, I saw a Series E lens for R750 in my favourite camera store; 28mm f2.8 MF.

I thought about it, and did some research and some more thinking. ┬áThe 28mm on a DX format camera is not wide and not a zoom lens; Its 42mm equivalent. I almost never take wide-angle shots and almost as few shots at less than 35mm in low light. I don’t need a prime for wide-angle, I need a prime for 50mm and upwards. and f2.8 is to close to f3.5

I really want to get a prime, but this is not worth it. I won’t use it enough. For R1300 I can get a 50mm F1.8 D prime which I will use.

I’ll carry on saving up, then.

Angela’s Picnic 2010

5 04 2010

So I attended Angela’s Picnic this Easter Sunday.

From the NOC site:

The event was started by Angela Heinz, who owned a pink Morgan, and was involved in
Morgans for a large part of her life. When she was first diagnosed with cancer she
decided that she would like to combine her love for cars with an event where money
could be raised for Cancer Research. Angela was a remarkable lady who arranged this
totally laid-back, uncompetitive picnic in the park to give car enthusiasts the opportunity
to see a variety of very special cars in one place. Angela died from her cancer some
years ago.

There are usually a huge variety of classics and rare cars in attendance with something for everyone. Visitors and exhibitors pay a donation at the entrance and all the money raised goes to hospice.

I’m busy uploading some of the pictures I took onto Flickr as I type this.

I’m sorry to say I shelved the 365 project; I could not put enough time into it. I’ve been trying to find interesting things to photograph on a day-to-day basis but I can’t manage to do it 7 days of the week.

I hate starting something and not finishing but unfortunately, varsity comes first.

That said, I will try and upload pictures more frequently; Hopefully tonight.

Damn you internet connection.

I have a bunch of pictures to upload, unfortunately, my connection is downloading and uploading at 8kb/s. This means I can’t complete my download of gimp for editing some of them or upload my pictures. :/
