Weight and Stuff Report – 14 June 2013

Hmmm, up again today. And that’s a morning weight, as the evening figure would have been adversely affected by the wee drinkie I may have accidentally had after a late finish at work. I had a bit of a walk at lunchtime with the Fujifilm X-E1 and the 55-200mm lens which arrived this morning. At the long end, that lens is the equivalent of 300mm on a full-frame camera like the Canon 5D Mark III, but in a delightfully light form. Here’s a picture taken from the Tyne Bridge:

Camera: X-E1
Aperture: ƒ/4.8
Shutter speed: 1/340s
Focal length: 200mm
ISO: 200
Taken: 14 June, 2013
Location: 54° 58.1406′ 0″ N 1° 36.4342′ 0″ W

That’s been cropped down to concentrate on the pigeons, and given minor tweaking in Lightroom. This one needed a bit more work – it’s a closer crop, and adjustments have been made to reduce some excess brightness. It’s also been cropped a lot.

Just showing that long lenses aren’t just for things at a distance…

Here’s the walk (if you click the map you’ll see the fascinating distance details)
