Deliberating new digital camera

Filed under: General — Artflux at 1:01 pm on Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Shopping around for a new digital body for my leica lenses. Relying on what consumer reports reviews I an looking at the Sony cameras. The Fujifilm looks very much like my Pentex film camera that I think I still have.

The Sony A9 is a popular rental at New York’s Fotocare, so before purchasing one I think it might be a good idea to try one out as a rental.

Do I really need 48 MP? The cost is considerably different by several thousand dollars.

The newer Model Alpha a7R III is a comfortable size and the circumference of the lens opening matches my older leica lenses.

Then there is the Fujifilm¬† XT-20 at about $800. It rates just behind the Sony models on Consumer Reports. I’m holding back on making a decision for the time being. Instead I continue to use the Iphone 7-Plus along with photoshop and lightroom. The only drawback with phone photos is that there is limited depth of field.

217 East 7th Street has changed dramatically and that is an understatement. I had trouble finding where exactly I took the photo on back in the day. Its hard to imagine that there has been so much change. The neighborhood to this day has its edge. Its a good idea to watch your back here even today. I was mugged and robed while living here in the 70’s.

Amazing what you can capture with an iphone camera. Shopping at the garden district. Tulips are plentiful everywhere in New York this spring.

Sort of spring bike ride under the Williamsburg Bridge. I think I took this same photo before about 30 years ago.

Last workout at goodlife fitness before returning to NYC. Hopefully by the time I return to Toronto the weather will be more springlike.

Back in Toronto on a crisp but not quite spring day. Takes a while to warm up up north.

My first apartment in NYC 1972

Filed under: General — Artflux at 9:03 pm on Tuesday, February 20, 2018

It was my first flat. I had the ground floor though with a garden in the back. It was $75 a month rent and I shared it. The neighborhood was somewhat a ghetto, and dangerous. People hesitated to venture into Alphabet City. I was mugged once.  The building is currently empty. I think that there was a fire.
