Journey of a body on this earth

Ahoy NYK Line!


I really love my Sony but even more I love the 16-35mm 2.8 lens I used for this image.  It takes such sharp pictures!  It’s the perfect combination for travel in my opinion.  It’s great for landscapes and architecture.  Sometimes I catch it in an “in between” distance and I struggle then, but I like to only carry one lens with me unless I’m in a car traveling around.  Mirrorless cameras are so light and convenient for travel.  I loved that I didn’t have to carry my Nikon on this Port of Oakland tour….although don’t get me wrong, I do love my Nikon.

I’ve been reading about other camera technologies and there is an interesting one coming out called Light.  Have you heard about it?  It’s compact much like a smartphone although more powerful.  The idea is that it has multiple lenses built in and takes multiple pictures with all the lenses at the same time and then puts the picture together a 52 mp resolution image.  I thought it was interesting technology and makes me wonder where technology is heading with regard to attaching lenses to cameras.   Check it out!

  1. I haven’t heard about this new high-tech camera. Never ending tech advancement. 😅 thank you for sharing, Laura!

  2. Love this photo… Strong ambiance! Great capture…

    • Thank you for seeing these things. Sometimes I think these types of subjects aren’t appreciated. The ships are so large and the containers so bright. I loved that amazing the low lit sky.

  3. I know what you mean my Samsung Galaxy 6 is used on photo shoots regularly edited just same as my Nikon and clients dont know the difference – 4K video is good enough to extract high end stills from – the time they are a changing

  4. I love working on that pier. My ladder truck looks like a Tonka toy compared to those container cranes…

  5. I have heard of Light. I’m reserving judgement on it, though. Excellent image with your soon to be retro Sony!

  6. Superb. I’m almost ready to get that Sony now …

  7. I like this one too.
    thanks for the info on the new camera.

  8. I’m in the same position with my Canon 5D mark 2.
    it’s way to heavy, and my right wrist hurts a lot after using it.

  9. I might consider a mirror less camera down the road, I dislike lugging heavy gear. Wonderful photo Laura!

  10. This is lovely, Laura! And love that you used a mirrorless camera 🙂

  11. Glad to hear you like the Sony, Laura. I, too, am weary of lugging as much as I love my D800. Nice to see your gorgeous images that you made with the mirrorless.

  12. I can almost see you going totally Sony lightweight. Yes to Galaxy (or iPhone 😑) piccies too. I got rid of all my expensive, heavy gear and use phone or superzoom while looking for the right deal in m43 to come along.

    • I can see it too but maybe not for a few years. I like having a backup camera but I’d need to get two more lenses on the sony. The lenses are SO expensive though! It’s ridiculous. I’d use it all the time if I had something other than the 16-35mm. What’s an m43?

  13. Micro four thirds which is what Panasonic and Olympus offer. Lenses are a standard as is the sensor. 50% of full frame in a 3×4 format. Between the two they offer tons of lenses plus third party lenses. A 12mm lens is 24mm and a 150mm lens becomes a 300, effectively. Small. Light. I am keeping the Sony a5000 as backup choice. The lens cost is an issue as you say.

  14. Lens mounts are a standard I meant. Anti shake is in body on Oly and in lens on Panasonic.

  15. I loved my full frame and so did all the the muggers in many places I have gone. It drew too much attention so a pocketable camera is a winner for me. If I were a group member and not so solitary when travelling it would be different. I understand why you love full frame, for sure.

  16. Such a great image! Yep I think it’s 100 too! Must check out that Light .. How good does it sound!

  17. So many advancements .. and I’m so behind on it all.
    Nice image!

  18. This makes industry looks amazingly cool Laura 🙂
