MANHATTAN – This was a “the dog ate my homework” day. I loaded up my usual gear (the Sony converted to black and white and a couple of lenses) and headed cross town to Riverside Park. On arrival I found a big problem – I had left the SD card in the computer and had neglected to take a test image in before I left. It’s a hike to Riverside Park so I proceeded with my iPhone.

MANAHTTAN – I was really distracted today by my day job so I took exactly one picture behind the building we live in here with my black and white adapted Sony camera and the very good 18-35mm Sony zoom lens.

MANHATTAN – There are relatively new sculpture installations on the Park Avenue Mall – I actually haven’t been able to find anything out about them on line. This in front of the Armory, shot with my black and white Sony and an 18mm Batis lens.

MANHATTAN – I’m now shooting regularly with my Sony A7rii that has been converted to black and white imaging by removing its Bayer filter. This plus some specialized image processing effectively double the resolution of this camera to 84 megs -far into medium format land. This only works with the very best lenses – lenses that perform well at 42 megs resolution don’t necessarily look great with resolution doubled. The Zeiss 25mm Batis lens that I’m shooting with today is more than up to the task. More on these topics as I develop more experience with this camera.
