Weight and Stuff Report – 13 March 2017

Bother. Up again today.

A few weeks back, I posted a 2013 photo taken with my old Fujifilm X-E1, and muttered about how I needed to go back with a longer lens and a bigger sensor. So that’s what I did on Sunday:



Camera: X-T2
Aperture: ƒ/8
Shutter speed: 1/1250s
Focal length: 400mm
ISO: 200
Taken: 12 March, 2017
Location: 54° 58.6526′ 0″ N 1° 36.6878′ 0″ W

That’s the tower of Newcastle Civic Centre, for those not familiar with the area. The larger seahorses are visible from ground level with normal vision, but the smaller ones fall under the heading of “exuberant detail that’s there for the birds”. You might just make out that there’s something up there (and if your eyes are better than mine, maybe you can see them, and the preceding sentence is complete nonsense, which would make it fit in well with the rest of this site. Either way, the 100-400mm lens on the X-T2 has resolved the detail quite nicely.
