Panorama Photos by Keijo Karvonen

Here are some beautiful panoramas from Keijo Karvonen. Keijo used his Sony NEX-7 in sweep panorama mode to create these expansive images, no stitching necessary. The NEX-7 can produce up to a 12,416 x 1,856 (23M) file, which equates to a 41.4" by 6.1" print at 300 dpi. The Sony 18-200mm OSS lens was mostly used and a few were with a Canon 35mm tilt / shift lens in FD mount.

Here is the Sony NEX-7 with the 18-200mm OSS lens attached. This provides an equivalent field of view of 27mm to 300mm on the APS-C sensor.

Sony Nex to Canon FD Lens Adapter on eBay

Image
jinfinance, the µ4/3 lens adapter seller, is now offering Sony NEX E-Mount adapters. The 1st one from his stable is the Canon FD mount manual focus lenses.

We would love to see an image made with a Canon 85mm f1.2 FD lens on the Sony Nex.


Here are pictures of the FD lens adapters from the jinfinance eBay auction. They are also available through Amazon.




In order to use these, we are assuming, one must be in Aperture priority mode and the aperture of the lens must be operated manual. Manual focus with the aperture wide open and stop down before taking the shot.

We can't wait to see the other adapters that are on their way.
