More Takumar fun

Having some more fun with the lens. It is so warm, and I’m actually taking pictures with the technicolor cinestyle picture style on my T2i. I know it’s for movies but I like it so much I don’t even bother changing it when I take pictures, which I know I should do…oh well live and learn! Enjoy!

Ok so I love checking out lenses from craigslist, especially if I can get a deal. Well just recently I acquired a Super Takumar 50mm Lens from a fellow photographer with the adapter for the canon and man I’m so glad I did! A friend of mine said it feels like a Bentley, so smooth, sturdy, all metal construction, heavy and of course ALL MANUAL!

I’ve never used an all manual lens before so it was interesting getting to know it. It has a great bokeh. I will post some pictures I took with it as well as video. It has a warm feel to it and is sharp! Might turn out to be one my favorite lenses to shoot with! Primes are truly the best! If you can get them, DO!

New Lens Purchase

Wow, got my 28-135 lens IS with USM man it is so nice. Works like a dream. And I love the always active manual focus. Will post some shots from this shortly! Met a really great guy that was selling it and had a great time conversing about many things under the sun. Taught me a few things that I didn’t know! It’s always nice to meet a new friend and learn something at the same time. Well I’m out for now, gonna get some more DSLR Learning done!

Just picked up my Tamron lens and of course I don’t know anything about what I”m doing…so I attached it to the T2i up and took theses shots…Also I just received the Battery Grip, DSL Cable from MarkerTek, my Rode mic and the hot shoe adapters for my FIG RIG.  I love it when a plan comes together!
