Strobist with Mr Froggy...






On one cool nite..i saw mr froggy...begging me for a potrait shoot and i agree...i use the remote flash to help mr froggy create a few dramatic shots..

the setup is pretty simple.. i use

Olympus E3 + Zuiko Digital 70-300mm + fl 50R

Yes u may think i am crazy for using 70-300 but it is actually a macro capable lens but you have to use manual mode to get the best macro shot..

enjoy

Panasonic Leica D Summilux 25mm f1.4 test shot



(Please double click on the shot to enlarge)

Test shot taken with Panasonic Leica D Summilux 25mm f1.4

All shots taken using F1.4

Thanks jason tan for becoming my model...



Another test shot..

Panasonic Leica D Summilux 25mm f1.4 ASPH







Hmm this lens is impressive..sharp at even f1.4 now tired will do a mini review later..




With this lens i could shoot nite scene at iso200 !!!!

Not convince i have a good copy of Panasonic Leica D Summilux 25mm f1.4 ASPH i purposely do a focus chart test to see if i have front or back focus. At f1.4 the DOF is just too thin and slight movement will change the focus point to another 2mm :)

I print out the test chart. Mount the Olympus E3 + Panasonic Leica D Summilux 25mm f1.4 ASPH on a manfrotto 190xprob tripod at 45 degree facing the focus point on the chart. Distance is 38cm which is the shortest focussing distance and i change the autofocus sensitivity to SMALL. Under normal mode the twin hair cross sensor will be acitivated and i dont want both of them to activate i just need one accurate one. Focus point on E3 is set to 1 point mid. ISO100 F stop F1.4.

I hereby certify this copy of lens is a good lens with no focussing issue...i just have to be careful with E3 twin cross hair AF sensor if i want pin point accuracy at f1.4

The firework launch pad is just few meter in front of me!!


(Pls double click on the pic to get the big size pic)
My first new year good deed is to help some party goers take group pics.

The traffic jam is crazy wtf..i was stuck in the jam for nearly 3 hours.. The real reason behind these traffic jam is because our beloved police traffic decided to held 2 roadblock on the same stretch of road in kota damansara leading to massive jam.. I mean come on what are they trying to achieve? Isn;t it their main priority is the help disperse the crowd asap ? Strange Malaysia..this is why it is called Boleh Land...
