Day Prime 2021

Believe it or not, 2021 is already the 11th year we're running the "Day Prime" challenge.

Bob J started with the idea in 2011 and Leo ran it for 8 years until 2019 when pegelli took over for 2020

If you want to get inspiration from previous years here's the links to the previous ten editions:

The challenge is to use as many of your lenses as possible in 2021


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 1 runs from Monday January 4 - Sunday January 10 and is for focal lengths from 4 mm to 10 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 4 or after January 10.

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, no others
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-2021-outtakes-and-training_topic139047.html - 2021 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.

it took some digging but I found that the iPhone SE 2020 has a 3.99mm lens [28mm, I think?]
the sensor is a Sony Exmor RS (cheating?)
ready for Day 4

treated myself to this - my first ever iPhone - to potentially replace my Sony RX100 IV

wonder what the real focal length of the ultrawide cameras on dual camera models is (for people who might be able to bend into week 1 shooting)

A for Apple of course!

Sony claims there is Alpha technology in their Xperia phones.

I've had an iPhone 8 Plus for a few years. Apple's heavy noise filtering and sharpening destroys images. I don't enjoy the raw workflow either.    It has been a nice reliable consumer device.

The first Day Prime Challenge I started, in fact my Dyxum Challenge debut, was in 2013. I did not have much gear but that was soon to change. In those days it was a 'true' day challenge causing me much stress, the 'week' format we have been using the last couple of years is more tolerable, but the first couple of months still tend to be stressful due to the large number of lenses that I can use. And as the 1st prime week is 4-10 I immediately have to get going: I have a full frame 10mm that is soo wide it is hard to use, but I have an idea or two. Let's hope for some prime weather.

I have dipped into Day Prime a few times, but I usually find that I have a lens for last week rather than this.

I have lenses to cover days 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 24, 28, 30, 35, 50, 60, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 100, 105, 135, 170, 180, 200, 210, 250 & 300 +1.4, 1,5 & 2x TCs. Frantic January would be followed by increasingly relaxed involvement. I may use this a factor in choosing my lens of the week for Project 150 - though not until day 17 (my widest Minolta).

Rather than bragging about lenses it's time to show some actual shots

I don't have a 10 mm prime but decided to use my APS-C wide zoom E10-18/4 on my A7Rii and disable the automatic APS-C cropping. You get some fun effects that way. If you leave the hood on you don't get much more than the APS-C crop, but if you take it off it still covers quite a bit of sensor

All four pictures are in the same little park. Most of the park is rather swampy. There is a section with a bunch of tall dead trees. There was also a lot of birds. The 200-600 G will get more use there.

The 6.5mm is an interesting little lens. It is sold as an APS-C lens, but the image circle is a bit too large for the height of a Sony APS-C sensor. It could be nice to have a bit larger circle on full-frame. The A7RII seems a decent fit for it.

@Quiet - I really like the "Tree Corpses" shot

Good to see a straight up shot - lying down(?).

I've only ever used Minolta 16/2.8 back in my KM7D days (so FX lens on APS) - I enjoyed using it a lot. I tried a Panasonic 8mm fish (native m43) in a shop once and found it to be a totally different thing. These were both rectangular fish and not circular.

Have always wanted to see a view of the sky (blue sky with fluffy clouds) from the top of a hill looking straight up (not land in the image) ... after all, fisheye were originally designed to photograph the sky.

It has 190 degree view, so I can stand up and hold it as high as possible and still get the ground all around. I will note that Sony's electronic level is useless for alignment straight up or down.

It is really nice for night sky. It captures the entire sky. I took it to a dark sky area at Sleeping Bear dunes a few years ago, with a tripod. And I discovered later that I had captured the Aurora that I hadn't even seen at all when I was there.

(viewing this thread could get expensive)
(hope someone still as an olde worlde Minotla/Sony A mount 16mm rectangular fish for next week)

Are those fisheye photos showing absolutely as much of the edge of the circle as possible? I realize you are cropping one edge to make them square. But does the image really get that close to the other borders of the frame?

I'm guessing the white rings on a couple (outside of the circle) are light bouncing inside the camera baffle and leaking outside the circle?

dCap, I've seen this lens listed for less than $100. I paid a bit more since I was an early adopter. Meike markets it as an APS-C lens, but the image circle is a bit bigger than the height of an APS-C sensor. I noticed today while cropping these that the circle gets bigger with close focus. Yes, it will flare outside the circle when the sun is in frame which is most of the time. I sometime open up Photoshop and clean that up.

Yes, it will flare outside the circle when the sun is in frame which is most of the time. I sometime open up Photoshop and clean that up.

cool, so these are captured on APS then?
have you ever (probably not in this thread, sorry, ambush) used it in full-frame mode?
Am imagining a bit more flexibility for grabbing the full-circle (though would likely only be for A7 R high res shooters).
Do you ever find that the image circle is too close to the edge of APS frame?

Oh, I really like the washing machine photos too - the colors and metallic feel.

Today was laundry day here and I use an industrial machine at the local launderette (now I have to think about putting a camera inside!) - they are not as clean as this!

I so nearly bought a6400 + E10-18/4 ... nice to see these photos

Can I ask, have you straightened them in post at all?
The 2nd shot looks really straight (for an ultra wide).
Or were you holding the camera up quite high?

These photos are jpegs straight from the camera. Automatic corrections are on in the camera.
I didn't straighten anything in the post-process. This time I managed to keep the camera straight at eye level.
With such a wide angle, I like to find something at the bottom of the frame. Then it looks better than a huge pavement or asphalt on the street :)

Great activity for week 1, with a good mix of fisheyes and rectalinear lenses.

Just to make sure we don't forget that today is the start week 2 for focal length from 11 to 17 mm. Remember not every lens needs to be shot on the exact day, any lens in this range is OK to be used any day of the week. And if you don't have time to process/post in the week that's also no problem, just post when you're ready. Only real requirement is that the photo is made in the right week.

Thanks darosa - I must say your shots inspire me to try to do better in future.

I can't say that I am comfortable with a fish-eye and the Peleng is prone to horrible flare around the edge - which I have cropped out in this example. A long way from my favourite lens.

Here it is with a black background - it seems to get a bit lost, perhaps I should try a dark grey.

Yes, I went web searching and cannot find a group wording for it. One suggestion was 'expression' but that doesn't suggest words/numbers/letters/symbols to me. I capture them all the time.

This week I have to cover 3 different focal length, 12, 16 and 17 mm

For my first session (with all 3 lenses) I went to the Mastenbos in Kapellen. I nice wood area that also holds the remains of the Nazi "Northabschnitt", a trench and bunkerline in the North of Belgium to defend in case the Allied invasion would land to the north in the Netherlands, of which we now know never happened.

That sun flare is in exactly the right place Heikki (HK14.1), and less flare in the other two it seems, even though they all have the sun in the frame. Nice "cold" series and in line with what can be expected up north.

Fred, F-15.2 hardly looks like a fisheye shot with the horizon exactly in the middle it doesn't bend. Great light in that shot as well.

You are right Pieter. The horizon was bent a bit (tried to keep the camera as levelled as possible, but applied the correction profile in LR. I liked it just a bit better that way.

Phil Wood, very good photos from Sigma 12-24. You inspired me to take this lens out of the drawer;)
I like the ,Portico view' the most.
And thanks to you, I know who Beay Brummell was.

Lovin' the bunker shots @pegelli - nice and clean (tidy) they look too.

I have something similar (small scale I think) an easy walking distance from me but mainly all locked up (and strewn with broken beer bottles) ... have snapped some shots there and will return one day soon. I'd liver here 6 months and walked past them many time before I found them (hiding in plain site!).

peg 17-2: One of the four bunkers of the "Nordaschnitt" that's open to the public and not taken over by bats
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202101/i-6RBSdrS/A">


peg 17-3: The inside of this bunker was flooded due to the heavy rainfall, fortunately only 2-3 cm (so no problem for my wellies)

peg 17-4: Cleared for construction
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202101/i-TkNCxfT/A">


peg 17-5: Some more brutal architecture (inspired by Phil's shots, the building is expected to be demolished in the near future)
https://pegelli.smugmug.com/Other/202101/i-f529ppT/A">

All A7ii + Minolta MC Rokkor 17/4

That's it for this week from me, for next week I have 6 lenses, I hope to use them all but it will depend on opportunity and weather.

Quick Day 16 entry: I decided to visit Suomenlinna today and returned with 758 pictures on memory cards shot with various focal lengths and obviously 16 mm was one of these. I think I'll post wider array of these pictures later when I manage to properly sort out these (including some tedious dust bunny removal).

Day 16

Shot this view on day 14 as well. My 14mm (Bell & Howell f2.8) gives a more dramatic shot, but it's nowhere near the 16-50 SSM by any other measure of lens performance. May return tomorrow with 17mm FF. 18 (APS), 19, 20, 21 & 24 next week + Project 150 - not convinced I'll stand the course.

No wide zoom is perfect, but the Sigma is excellent - and so wide. Glad you like the shots, the portico is my favourite too, though I am tempted to clone out the 'bar' painted on the tarmac.

And thanks to you I know I made a typo (corrected) - it was Beau Brummell (George to his mum). His father bought this house in our village when he was 5 - nice to have a little place in the country.
