Day Prime 2020

The challenge is to use as many of your lenses as possible in 2020


The idea of this challenge is inspired by Week 50, in which participants shoot with a 50mm lens for the 50th week of the year. The Challenge of Day Prime is to post pictures taken on the appropriate day for the lens - hence shots with a 16mm taken on 16 January, 28mm on 28 January and so on (after January it becomes more difficult but see the next post).

Day Prime is organised on basis of weeks. Day Prime weeks run from Monday till Sunday. The focal lengths that fall in that week should be used in that week; for example: week 2 runs from Monday January 6 - Sunday January 12 and is for focal lengths from 6 mm to 12 mm. On what day of the week this/these FL(s) is/are used is up to you but the photos should not be made before January 6 or after January 12.

This means you have a whole week to use your lens(es). Of course you still can use your lens(es) on the appropriate day, but if that day doesn't suit you because of work or weather or whatever, you can make your photo on any other day of that week.


Day Prime is called a challenge, but it's very easy going:

Rules:

You can use any prime lens you like
You can use any zoom lens you like, but you can only use the zoom ends
Adapters and converters that change the FL of the lens are not allowed except for dedicated converters (such as for the Sony E16/2.8 and/or FE28/2) and teleconverters for FLs of 135mm and more
You are free to use A-mount and E-mount cameras
You can post as many photos as you like made on the appropriate day/in the appropriate week
You can only post the photos that were made on the appropriate day/in the appropriate week
Cropping and minor straightening is allowed, but the photo should reflect the focal length of the lens

Have fun!

Further notes:
Please add EXIF data: camera used, lens used, aperture, exposure, iso
You don't have to sign up: just post your photos!
You can't drop out of this challenge: you decide on the days you want to participate: the challenge is to participate on as many days as you can
It would be nice if you post your better shots also in the https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/sample-images_forum28.html - Sample Images subforum (for A- and E-mount lenses) or go https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/index-nonnative-lenses-on-e-and-amount-cameras_topic102746_post1228224.html#1228224 - here for samples with non-native lenses


Day Prime Challenge has two threads. This one is for photos and comments; you can also post photos of the gear you are using; and there's a https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/day-prime-2020-training-center_topic137584_post1600162.html#1600162 - 2020 Training Centre for your out-of-challenge contributions.

This challenge is for everyone! Everyone will learn something and everyone can enjoy it.
If you have not joined before and do not fully understand the guidelines, do not worry. Just start posting and ask as many questions as you want.

List of dates for January until June (Other months to follow later 'as time progresses')
Since a new year starts on a different day of the week every year the "groupings" of focal lengths (lenses) within one week will be slightly different from last year.

Glad to be of service Fred, and I'm a heavy user of day prime myself as well. For these first three month I only have weeks 1, 11 and 12 off

Later it gets more quiet

No such luck for me. 12 weeks, 32 focal lengths to cover, no time off   

Edit: Week 1 off, don't have anything below 10 mm.

I don't believe luck has anything to do with it Paul. GAS may be?

For me 11 weeks with 18 FL's in the first quarter.
29 FL's in total for the year, excluding TC's for 135mm and more. That would bring the total far over 30 FL's.

Yes, GAS is the problem. I'm sort of cured now.

For my "training" I went slightly north, to the redoubt of Schilde, for the actual 12 mm shots today (best day in the weather forecast this week) I went slightly south, to the Fort of Oelegem. Unfortunately you can't get inside the fort most days and currently it's even a no-go zone for the people who control the fort to make sure they don't disturb the thousands of hibernating bats that stay there over winter.

Yesterday I went to the indoor ski track in Zoetermeer during my lunch break. Built on the slopes of the former municipal waste dump, not a very inspiring area, but the building itself has some appeal. The sun was out, it was cold and windy. The next couple of days the weather will be problematic again.

I think the left and top of the image suffers from misalignment. I would like to have a Lensbaby Scout as optic holder as the Composer has tilt adjustment and is extremely difficult to adjust straight. But alas, no affordable Scout to be found. I think I will improvise something on M42 helicoid adapter.

The building on the left is Hudson 99. The tallest building in New Jersey - 270m. So 12mm on full frame fulfilled its role.

I have the same aligning problems with the Twist 60, but there it is not so obviously visible as the image circle exceeds sensor size. I have some aluminium M42 body caps, all I need to do is make a hole and stick it on somewhere (need to work out what works best with the helicoids I have). I'll put it on the to do list for this weekend.

Sounds like a plan! Would you mind to share a picture of your solution once it's there?

Every year I follow this great challenge but don't find the time to take active part in it (beside few post here and there as a "guest"...). This year I decided to try to go with the challenge all the way! Not that I have more free time, I just want to take more photos this year.

Usually I don't like the extreme wide angle (wider than 21mm is too wide for me...) but for the challenge I used them this week.

Let's start with my widest lens - Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye. Not high quality lens, but at f/8 it can be not bad (if you like fisheye lenses).

8.1: The view from my door

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye | f/8 | 1/400 sec | ISO 320

8.2: The kids were here...

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Peleng 8mm F3.5 Fisheye | f/8 | 1/40 sec | ISO 6400

8.3: Self portrait

And now with Minolta 11-18mm F4.5-5.6 at the 11mm end.

First on FF body and cropped to maximum area without black corners (I didn't use APS-C mode, but since it doesn't have black corners in APS-C mode, I believe it is wider than 11mm on APS-C):

11.1 The view from my door (again...)

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Minolta DT 11-18 mm F4.5-5.6 | 11.0 mm | f/8 | 1/250 sec | ISO 200

And now few on APS-C camera:

11.2 The salt ponds on a cloudy day

Sony NEX-7 + Minolta 11-18mm F4.5-5.6 | 11.0 mm | f/8 | 1/100 sec | ISO 200

The Pentaflex AK16 film camera has a three-lens turret and was factory fitted with the very sought after Biotar 50/1.4 (the reason for buying the camera), Biotar 25/1.4 and Flektogon 12.5/2.8. A standard 16 mm film camera projects a 10.26 mm × 7.49 mm image, so one may wonder how this will work on a 36 by 24 sensor. Remarkably, the Biotar 50/1.4 virtually covers the FF sensor (the reason for its popularity). Big hand for our friends at Carl Zeiss in Jena, German Democratic Republic. The 25/1.5 is very useable on APSC. The Flektogon 12.5/2.8 is a different story. Its image circle is just large enough for 16 mm film and makes a perfect circle on APSC.

As next week is busy I declare the 12.5 a 12.

Few more with the Minolta DT 11-18 mm F4.5-5.6 (EXIF shows Sony, but it is the same lens and I use the Minolta copy of the lens). I now remember why I like this lens...

I like your idea about the helicoid adapter. Hadn't thought of that myself.

And once again the removable Exakta lens mount comes to the rescue. Turns out the lensbaby fish fits nicely. No time for a picture, I'll try tonight.

Thank you Fred and Leo!

Leo, great to see you (or at least your photos...) here this year as well! I was worried that no one will remind me day 127...

Great start for this year! This week I have 4 zoom lenses with wide ends at 16mm, 18mm and 19mm. Let's see how much I will manage to get out of them...

This week is two lenses for me, a Minolta 16/2.8 FE (A-mount) and a Minolta Rokkor-W 17/4 MC (MC/MD mount)

I took them both out today, again because it seemed the best day in the forecast for the coming days.

First the Fish-Eye

16.1: Main hall of the Redoubt of Schilde (you can see the large cracks in the ceiling from when they tried to blow it up in 1914, but this part is still standing > 100 years later)
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-vvQPmh7/A">


16.2: The cellar behind the main hall
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-BSW6z9X/A">


16.3: Casemate in front of the main redoubt
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-2MJ37CG/A">
defished in Lightroom


16.4: Entrance to the same casemate
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-ztQFt7d/A">


16.5: No graffiti inside, so I spiced it up with a shadow from my camera
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-TKQ5MSr/A">


16.6: And part of the moat is now a fishing pond from a local fishing club
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-TWw77GG/A">

All on an A7Rii

17.1: Bat cave (the closed rooms of the redoubt is indeed a place where thousands of bats hide during their winter hibernation)

17.2: Partly blown wall
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-QqrnjK9/A">


17.3: Another one in the cellar behind the main hall
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-Nt2Gf3b/A">


17.4: This used to be an inside hallway, but the wall on the left was blown out in 1914

Thanks for the encouraging words, Paul. Actually always amazed on the final outcome myself, not to say that I often struggle in the beginning to find the right angle and framing to master the 130° AOV of this Voigtländer.

Welcome and already looking forward to your further Day Prime images.

I always feel that the subject selects this lens. If the subject is not right, there is little you can do with the camera to make it work.

For me 15mm (fisheye) and 16mm (zoom-end) will be on duty this week. Most likely it will be weekend before I start shooting. Long live the weekly flexibility for Day Prime!

I am starting this week with 16mm.

First is the Sony Carl Zeiss 16-35mm F2.8 SSM (a-mount lens) at the 16mm end.

16.1 There is also some green around here (onions field)

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM (SAL1635Z) | 16.0 mm | f/8 | 1/800 sec | ISO 200

16.2 but it is mainly desert...

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM (SAL1635Z) | 16.0 mm | f/8 | 1/800 sec | ISO 200

and here is one with Sony E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (crop lens). It is small and nice to carry around, but it is not a good lens...
The photo is of a large field of solar panels. I went off-road, thinking that I can get a good composition, but there were people there and I couldn't get to the spot I wanted.

16.3

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony E PZ 16-50 mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (SELP1650) | 16.0 mm | f/8 | 1/800 sec | ISO 200

And now 19mm.

The lens is Tokina 19-35mm F3.5-4.5. I always had mixed feelings about it. It is a nice lens, but it is not very good. More like "good for the price"... It used to be my FF wide zoom until I got the Sony Zeiss 16-35mm ZA (SAL1635Z). Since then I don't think I ever used it (how nice to take part of this Day Prime challenge - it cleans the dust from old lenses...).
When shooting at the wide end of this lens, the EXIF shows 20mm instead of 19mm. However, the EXIF also shows wrong lens name, so I tend to believe the 19mm written on the lens rather than the reported 20mm. I manually changed the EXIF to 19mm (and correct lens name).

Here is an afternoon view out of my door (I guess you are going to see this spot many times in different perspectives...)

You're doing well guys! I love Leo's E16mm shots, Quiet_OC's classic POV on the M6 and Paul's church interior shots in particular. And for a guy from "010", you have been very friendly in depicting "020" in a flattering way .A good series, but I love 17.5, -6 , -11 and -13. The long exposures work and BW very well.

I hope to catch up tomorrow for Day 15 and 16, my FL's for this week. I had to prioritise some fammily matters above shooting this week.

Thank you Fred

Actually not all lights there have been on, thus had to completely skip the area where the BMW Museum is located and "lost" some anticipated motives
Also the remaining illumination changed colour quite quickly, so had a hard time to get the pure blue colour.

And next week looks quite busy for me too: three different focal lengths with options to use one prime + dedicated ultra wide converter, three primes and two zoom ends. Luckily all are native AF lenses... Unless nothing fatal and unexpected happens, I promise that I will at least cover all three focal lengths if not every lens.

Since I have too many primes in the base case I dropped zoom ends a few years ago, especially in the earlier period of the year. Might slip in one or two in the second half of the year when it's much more quiet from a "day prime" perspective.

Next week I have three focal length to cover with two lenses each. Don't know if I'll manage them all. Busiest week is #8 with nine nifty 50's and a 53 mm, and #6 with five 35's and two 40's is no slough either

Question for the "day primers": Historically there was a "Helios Weekend" in June and a "Pancake Weekend" in September includede in the day prime thread. How's the appetite for that this year, should we also plan that or strictly stay "day prime"? Opinions welcome .

Those weekend events are fine, but perhaps we should separate them from the main Day Prime thread.

Week 3 I didn't get to use my a-mount 18-200mm lens. Other than that I used all the relevant lenses.
Week 4 is going to be challenging, so I see what I can get. I have 2 21mm prime, 24mm prime, 2 zoom lenses with 24mm end and 25mm prime. On the other end, I have 2 sick kids at home, a lot of work to do and a trip to Tel-Aviv for some meetings. I try to get as much photos as I can...

Traditions will come and go. Participation in the day prime challenge (or any other challenge) is not overwhelming these days. It will not be a great loss to this community if these weekends are no longer planned. Naturally if they are planned I will participate.

The 16-35 tends to do that Fred, 16.1 mm FL shows up as 17. I ignore it.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade - 2 kids sick at home? Take them to the beach (clean air and good sun is always good, isn't it?). They enjoyed and I managed to start my week 4.

Agree with Paul. I like both events though and will participate if planned (even bought a pancake for it last year )

And now you also have a camera to use it "properly"

My start of week 4, a misty morning bicycle ride to the castle of 's Gravenwezel

20-1: The gate

20-2: Looking through the gate

20-3: In the fields in front of the castle
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202001/i-xmK8cKm/A">

All A6000 + E20/2.8

Unfortunately the castle is private property and cannot be visited except for (expensive) private events
