Theoretically, this is the summer holidays time. Theoretically, there is less work and more free time. Theoretically, I should have more opportunities to photograph crystals. But in reality, it is a particularly busy, intense and stressful time for me. The effect – long breaks at work with crystals.
After Panasonic has introduced firmware version 1.2 for the S1, the V-Log upgrade become a hot topic and there is a lot of discussion over the Internet if this upgrade will be free of charge or not, how to get it, how to activate and when it will become available. There is a lot already clear: in countries like USA, Australia, Germany, France, Netherlands, the upgrade will be free of charge. I have asked Panasonic Poland a question how it will be in Poland and the answer was far away from what I would be satisfied with: in Poland this upgrade will be paid feature regardless if someone already has the S1 or not. Short and precise 🙂
36C in the backyard – perfect conditions to hide in the basement and work with crystals under the microscope 🙂
Panasonic and Olympus – two creators of the 4/3 and later Micro 4/3 systems. Olympus still stays with the Micro 4/3 system, while Panasonic expanded its offer with cameras equipped with a 35mm format (full frame) sensors: S1 and S1R, and announced, but not yet released, the S1H.
A two-day trip to Białowieża. This time I could take some more equipment, but I was wondering if there would be an opportunity to use it, because again it was a business trip, so first work, and pictures only if there is a spare time. That’s why I again took the XF 18-135mm as the only lens, hooked to X-H1.
Session #65 – again resorcinol and hydroquinone, but this time the specimen seasoned – it is ca two weeks old.
Session #64 – this time only a short, but colorful video 🙂
Lately I travel in the business much and the camera becomes my handy notebook. And it was the same this time. Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujinon XF 18-135mm – luggage limitations forced me to take only one, lightweight body and one universal lens. On the video and pictures, you can see Sopot.
Session #63 – resorcinol and hydroquinone.
Today I had no inspiration to make new crystals, so I just went to the backyard garden. And there is a wild rose mad. Authentically crazy – shoots 2 – 3 meters long, shooting on all sides – we laugh that it competes with nearby spruce 🙂 But I must say, that it beautifully blooms – it is all in small, but beautiful and fragrant flowers.
Fujifilm X-H1 + XF 80mm Macro + two Nissin flashes, controlled in TTL with Nissin Air 1.
