In 2009 we explored the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. Last year we decided to return to New Zealand to visit the North Island. We were flying with Singapore Airlines and decided to do a 2-day stopover in Singapore on our way to Auckland.
A couple of months ago Samyang announced a new XP 10mm f/3.5 ultra wide-angle lens. It seems like I’m one of the first people in the world who got a production sample of this lens.
In 2012 I had a great road trip together with my friend Philippe along the Carretera Austral in southern Chile. Last year I returned to Patagonia. This time my friend Mark joined me. Our main focus was the southern part of the Carretera including several side trips which I hadn’t done on my 2012 trip.
Before coming to the tripod collar topic let me give you a short introduction why I’ve chosen the Sigma 14mm F1,8 DG HSM Art lens for my Sony A7RII cameras.
I’m really happy with my normal wide angle lenses: Zeiss Batis 18mm, Loxia 21mm and Loxia 25mm. All 3 have good to excellent corner sharpness, great colors and only a little bit of field curvature.
This is the final part of my Namibia 2017 travel report.
Processing more than 5 hours of footage takes a lot of time, especially if you have no experience with video. A lot of things are very different compared to processing still images. In addition you also have to find suitable music tracks and deal with the license topic for your music.
If you haven’t read part 1 of my Namibia travel report I suggest to start there first.
After spending one week in the Etosha National Park watching wildlife we went to the Spitzkoppe.
In August 2017 we spent three weeks in Namibia. After the short trip in 2015 this was our second visit of this beautiful country.
I’m mainly interested in spectacular landscapes, while my daughter Linnéa is more interested in wildlife. The compromise for our travel planning was therefore one week safari in the Etosha National Park followed by two weeks of exploring the west and south of Namibia.
In January and June we spent altogether 4 weeks in different areas of Thailand. Our first destination was Krabi. We arrived there with a rental car from Phuket.
I’m often asked questions like “How do you get the amazing details in every shot?”. There is no magic involved but following a couple of guidelines will definitely help to improve the perceived sharpness of images.
I’ve finally managed to publish two POD coffee table books, one about temperate rainforests and one about Iceland. They are available both at Blurb and Amazon. You can find more information about the books and direct links to Blurb and Amazon on my Books page.
