lens test (Sony Alpha DT 50mm F1.8 SAM)

by ada

Somewhere around the middle of April my kit lens gave up on its focusing skills. I was already contemplating buying a new one for a long time, I just couldn’t justify giving out money. Since making decisions isn’t my prime skill, it took me weeks to pick the new lens (out of the two that were available for Sony cameras in my price range, haha). I got the 50 mm f 1.8 lens because it was cheap I want to learn from scratch. Here are the first photos I took with it, along with some thoughts on my experiences (I’m now using it since one month).

Pros:

  • it takes very nice photos under less than ideal light conditions (dusk, night, inside)
  • really good for portraits
  • it was really cheap – like 88 GBP on Amazon

Cons:

  • the large aperture, that allows the low-light photos to be so nice makes the lens literally unsuitable for bright daylight use. I need some ND filters, asap
  • it is very tight – I should have known that, because it is a portrait lens. Unfortunately, for me a portrait lens is A Lens That Makes Nice Portraits – while, in reality, a portrait lens is A Lens That Is Unable To Cover Any Other Subject Than Portraits. I crept on dirty grounds like those cool wildlife photographers do while shadowing lions, and still could not get the tiny castle of Liechtenstein on the picture in whole. I don’t miss the zoom of the kit lens, but I do miss its width
  • it is not suitable for macro photos
  • I expected it to be sharper than it is
  • unrelated, but I really hate the way my Sony camera autocorrects color saturation. My fault – I should finally start to use modes other than intelligent automode

Anyway. I am slowly, very slowly, but actually learning some things about photography. All we need is just a little patience, haha.

April recap

by ada

April found me in Hungary, where I visited the ruins of the Schossberger castle in Tura,

Untitled 171 (2)

celebrated my father’s birthday,

Untitled 82

hunted some Easter Eggs with Milo and Móricka,

Untitled 181

and took photos of every blossoming tree that came my way.

Untitled 51

After Easter I travelled back to Vienna to work my socks off enjoy spring weather,

play tourist,

and continue discovering my neighbourhood.

I spent an afternoon in Mödling,

where I walked in weird woods,

picked flowers,

and met a post-Easter bunny.

Untitled 36 (2)

I visited the House of Music,

HDM VIENNA

and went to the Vienna Air King contest to see some flying bikes (of which occasion some photos are yet to be shared) (if only I could find the time).

The rest of the month was not the least blogworthy. I worked/slept it through without taking a single photo after the 11th of April. All the glamour of my life, haha.

I will never ever get back to real-time posting. Better I give it up right now and simply rename this blog Reminiscences.
