Full frame lenses on APS-C

Not necessarily, as APS-C pixel size is generally smaller. At a given print size, lack of central sharpness or LoCA may be more noticeable on APS-C than on FF

Full frame lenses on APS-C
Posted By Dan Paris

Consider two extreme cases of FF lenses:
  • lens A produces a very sharp image in the center, but image quality degrades abruptly near the FF corners

  • lens B produces an image with average resolution in the center, and image quality degrades only moderately near the FF corners

Lens A would perform better on APS-C than on FF (as the smaller sensor will crop the "bad" corners) but lens B would perform better on FF (both for a given print size because of the APS-C magnification factor, and at the pixel level, because of the smaller pixels of APS-C).


So I would say that it depends on the lens.

Vignemale at Sunrise, Pyrenees

An early ascent of Petit Vignemale (3,032m) in the French Pyrenees was rewarded with a colourful sunrise, requiring very little edit to the image. The almost 360-degrees panorama was obtained by stitching 15 frames in portrait orientation taken at 24mm.

Thanks a lot PJ1, nosliwmit, K2 to K50 and pichaser for your kind words





For the Milky Way picture I used a Rollei Compact Traveler Carbon, yes it is a bit flimsy with the K1 + 15-30 mounted on it, however fully retracted it is rigid enough (which is OK for astro)

Landscape Mountaineering in the Southern Alps (K-1 Mk II and GR II pictures)
Posted By Dan Paris

Hi,

here are some shots from my last mountaineering trip. Our objective was to climb the west face of the Sirac (3,441m)


First a night view of the mountain from the south (with the K-1 Mk II + 15-30@22mm, 20*15sec for the sky at ISO800, a single 3min shot at ISO6400 for the ground)




From the same valley after sunrise, still with the K-1






For the rest of the trip I only took the GR II. We first had a long hike around the moutain with 3 passes to cross before reaching the mountain hut.




Closer view of the south face




West face and Vallonpierre Glacier as seen from Col de Vallonpierre (stitched panorama)




A sheep herd drinking in the lake beneath the huge NW face




After a short night, during the climb of the Glacier just before sunrise




In the shadow of the Sirac



Climbing the face above the glacier



Last ridge before the summit



View to the north from the summit (stitched panorama)




View to the south



Time to go down



North face from Valgaudemar valley



Mountain stream



thanks for looking,

Dan

Thanks pqberger for your kind comment !





With a moderate exposure time and wide angle lens, the "motion blur" in the foreground is not very noticable, especially since the landscape is quite dark. However on the stars it would be hence the choice of astrotracer. It is best however to do a separate series of frames for the landscape (with longer exposure times)

Hi,

this is a stack of 17 * 10 sec exposures with astrotracer, processed using calibration frames (darks, flats, biases), shot from the countryside in Normandy.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments, much appreciated !


The GR II is indeed a great camera, I wish it were more rugged but as it is very small it is easy to protect it under the mountain jacket or in a pocket.
