Nice gull wing Mercedes - that one yours?

Stopped by my local Target and figured I'd check out some of the toys.
Those are cool looking legos, back in my day they were all blocks. I like those LED lights in the cars.

I love these photos guys! They are great! Has anyone recieved their 06 Telephoto and taken some pictures yet? I need to decide before Christmas if I want the 06 Telephoto or the 02 Standard Zoom. Hard decision!

A camera cap, something to cut out the middle, and some hot glue, and my CS mount 4mm f/1.2 lens fits my Q.


No shortage of flare.


Cropped to square it illuminates the whole image area, but sharpness is of course terrible in the corners. Very fishy too. It says f/1.2, I suspect that's a bit of a marketing truth. Doesn't let in more light than the f/1.9 standard lens at any rate. (But not less either.)

Very cool, spellcaster.

actually, what you see may seems nice, but the whole event is kinda overestimated. They try to sell it as a great cultural show, indeed, the whole thing is very badly organized, it starts on 8th december, so its pretty cold outside. The several scenes are very far one to another, and you need to use subways or tramways to go to. BUT, the organisation is sooooo lame that you have sometime to wait like more than 45min just to enter subway station, and each time its the same. so in 6 hours, you can barely see 2 to 3 scenes, full of people, and full of pickpockets.

They want to make a huge thing of that stuff, but they just lost the whole sense of that.

actually, it's and old tradition, of people used to put some little candles under their windows, and sharing the mood, hot wine in cold weather.

now , it's just about using huge lights scenes, most of them are projected videos on walls, with extra LOUD music... lazer shows ... and full of agressives thieves, or drunk stupid persons.

Really, they want to make lot of money by making this as a huge festival, wheareas it's just a crappy rape of an old tradition, maybe there is like 4 scenes on 15 that worth it...

we were supposed to take a turn of several but, it was just impossible to take a walk, securely, considering we were with our childs.

Yesterday was the first night of it, maybe it would be better today or tomorrow, once they clean the place which looks like a bunch of bottles graveyard after night.

If you plan to see that festival, try to see waht it's like in small towns out of here, the feel of the candlelights and the mood of it, is far far better than that money making festival

These are trying out a Computar 50mm f1.8 C mount lens...



Seems to be a nice little lens and sharper than some of the other Computar's I have tried.
