My recent outings and gear selection.

Hi everyone,

I thought I’d do a quick post on my recent outings to Bognor and Chichester. A short while back I did a video and in it I promised that I would do a post with some images taken with my chosen camera and lens selection.

For the trips I managed to squeeze one more lens into one of my small Manfrotto camera bags. In addition to my Olympus PEN-F, M.Zuilko 30mm f/3.5 ,Lumix 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 and 35-100mm f/4-5.6 lenses I also took my 20 mm Lumix f/1.7 but in the end I didn’t find the opportunity to use it but, when I do I’ll post some images here.

All packed, but where’s the 20mm ? ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, it’s below the Lumix 35-100mm attached to it using my MOVO lens changer. This device did come with a strap which I quickly discarded, one because it didn’t look that great a quality and two because I don’t want my lenses hanging from my neck or shoulder but one could do so if one wished. Instead I fitted a small wrist strap for added security when changing lenses. The main advantage to me in using this is that one can dispose of a couple of lens back caps thus reducing the chances of loosing them and, primarily, the lenses don’t bang against each other in the small bag. I’ve also fitted JJC lens hoods to 20mm, 30mm and 12-32mm lenses and the 30mm lens is in a small soft lens pouch..

I’ve posted most of these shots previously but I’ll repost them here. First some taken with my M.Zuiko 30mm f/3.5 macro lens.

Now some shots taken with my Lumix 35-100mm lens, a very sharp, compact little lens.

A few (of many) taken with my favourite Lumix 12-32mm lens.

Hope this is of interest, with the exception of the 12-32mm lens, both the camera and lenses have all been purchased used in great condition and, as always, I travel compact and light. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kind regards,

Leigh

New Horizons 61 “Generation-Conversation”

Hi everyone.

Taken in Chichester with my PEN-F and Lumix 35-100mm lens. I was sitting on a bench seat when I noticed the young man skid to a halt on his skate board and he struck up a friendly conversation with the elderly lady. It just appealed to me the juxtaposition of age and attire etc. the lady with the shopping bag and the lad with his skateboard and, of course, the social-distancing and mutual mask-wearing etc.. I might do a bit more street photography this year. That’s what I love about the PEN-F styling, people probably think “just some old geezer with a film camera”, well 50% correct! ๐Ÿ™‚

New Horizons 59 “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside”

Hi folks,

New Horizons 59 “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside”. Hi Res shot taken in Bognor Regis. I wanted to experiment with using the camera’s hi-res shot mode to give a longer exposure movement in the sea. Olympus PEN-F and M.Zuiko 30mm. The move to the coast has been a real breath of fresh air both metaphorically and literally.:)
