Nikon Treasure (part 1)

I’ve been dabbling in analog photography again. It is irresistible, if a bit frustrating after some years of digital. I recently purchased a Nikon 85mm f1.8 lens from a seller in Japan.

It arrived quickly and was in excellent condition. I’ll add this to the F4S camera that just arrived. A post about that will soon follow. I’ll also start posting some images taken with this camera and a few different lenses. Stay tuned.

Ulanzi Lens Footage

As posted before, I’m exploring the use of the Osmo Pocket Camera with Ulanzi add-on lenses. The results vary. However, for the cost of about USD$15 each at this time, I think they’re worth the creative possibilities they offer. Here’s a look at the OP-5 and OP-8, which are the wide angle and fish eye.

Of course, this is just a primitive test designed to show the perspective of each lens. With more practice and a few projects coming, I think they’ll be helpful in creating some great footage. Get out there with your camera and have some fun!

MD-80’s are retiring

After many years of venerable service, the MD-80’s in the American Airlines fleet are being retired. I had a great flight aboard one recently and had the good fortune to make his short video:

The pilots were great guys, giving me the opportunity to capture footage with my Osmo Pocket camera. Thanks to them and American Airlines.

Redneck BBQ Lab

So, yeah, BBQ is the way to go when you’re that hungry and demand quality. I’ve head the pleasure of enjoying the Redneck BBQ Lab on four separate occasions now. It’s always fantastic. Here’s a short video of them racking up some ribs.

And here’s a video made with my Osmo Pocket Camera showing the platter.

That’s a half rack by the way. Next time, I’m going all in for the full rack. Worth every bite.
