Nokton 58/1.4 does stop animation. . .

I did this as a final project for my photography class last month, and I just thought I'd share. The project theme that I had to pertain to was a "day in the life," so I got my girlfriend to cooperate with me. At that time, I sold off my 16-50/2.8 and I was left with only the Nokton. . . which I thought worked fairly well because of the ability to shoot with super thin DOF, despite the long focal length. I'm pretty happy with what resulted - I hope you enjoy!



I ended up using a lot of the 1 sec. intervalometer mode, with some of the 21fps mode, too. Who needs a K7?

Great work! Great colors and the shallow DOF was put to a good use.

That was great. I'm sure you did a TON of work on that... and it was worth it. Congratulations.

After watching that I may have to get some Velvia out of my fridge and shoot a roll.

I would have loved to have an LX on hand, but OM-2 was all I had. . .

And MF wasn't too hard with one of those cheap-o focusing screens from china, combined with the K20D's live view.

I ended up batch-editing the JPEGs in lightroom, with a false duotone effect, because the images out of the camera needed just a little more oomph

But all that work and hard drive space just makes me want to make another one. . . this is almost as addicting as LBA

Wow that was brilliant, great use of the DOF! You captured some really touching moments with your girlfriend!

...and you just sold me on a K20D lol. (i was quite undecided between the K20D and dropping another arm and a leg for the K-7)
