This is the training centre aka Outtakes thread of Day Prime 2017.
Maybe there are more people like me who want to get the feel of a lens (again) and experiment a bit.

Day Prime is a great challenge imo but it's only one day for each FL. You have to be there on that day, or wait another year ...

This thread lets you post on other days too. And lets you post shots that you don't want to post in the main photo thread. And maybe talk about your lens(es) of choice?

With the new year came new budget (I have a self imposed restriction on purchases as otherwise I would ‘squander’ the entire household budget on photogear) and acquired a Voigtlander Heliar-Hiper Wide 10mm F 5.6 Asperical. Not for day 10 prime challenge alone as this UUWA lens will join the 16-35ZA in the default lens selection.

10.1: Erasmusbrug

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Focal Length: 10 mm
Aperture: f/11.0
Exposure Time: 0.02 sec (1/50)
ISO: 100

10.2: De Rotterdam from Erasmusbrug

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Focal Length: 10 mm
Aperture: f/11.0
Exposure Time: 0.006 sec (1/160)
ISO: 100

10.3: De Rotterdam and Grafitty

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Focal Length: 10 mm
Aperture: f/11.0
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 125

10.4: De Rotterdam (The biggest building in The Netherlands)

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Focal Length: 10 mm
Aperture: f/11.0
Exposure Time: 0.017 sec (1/60)
ISO: 125

10.5: New Year's Prosecco (I wanted to place an object in the corner close to MFD to understand how the lens behaves)

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Focal Length: 10 mm
Aperture: f/11.0
Exposure Time: 0.006 sec (1/160)
ISO: 100

10.6: Tunnel Vision

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Focal Length: 10 mm
Aperture: f/11.0
Exposure Time: 3.2 sec
ISO: 50

10.7: Hyper Wide Sunset (This is my main purpose for the lens, very wide landscapes and particularly sun-red skies)

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Focal Length: 10 mm
Aperture: f/16.0
Exposure Time: 0.4
ISO: 100

Looks like a very good lens.

Good stuff Paul!

#6 is my fave, but #7 is much better than I expected.
TBH I don't think the lens is very good for landscapes because the foreground is so dominant. But you solve that nicely in #7

Thanks Leo. I agree with your no. 7 comment, however I feel there are buts and ifs (so do I negate the agreement?):

In 16:9 I can reduce excess area. Yes I could pan with a shorter lens and have more MP as a bonus but it is not the same as a single image. If there is enough going on in the sky to fill the massive area then I'm fine. If not there is no point. So I need dramatic skies!

When I take to the mountains this summer the opportunities should be ample to fill the massive frame.

I am convinced that long exposures at 10mm will render fascinating images when there is a bit of cloud movement. That with a vertical element (high rise building) will do nicely.

Apart from all that it is nice to play with perspective in tight places with this massively large frame.

Does this mean the Pentax Q has finally died? I seem to recall it was giving you trouble. These cine lenses are quite something but I have more or less decided not to pursue this angle, I need to draw the line somewhere otherwise my lens lust short list becomes an even longer list.

Your bathroom scene is my favourite, it oozes darosa DNA, very good. Pity there is no way to use D-mount on Sony, these images deserve a better 'fate' than the training thread.

Thanks!

Pentax Q deceased yes, internal battery failure.

The Samsung NX mini is a nice camera. Excellent battery performance, tilting LCD. No focus peaking unfortunately. It has focus zoom assist but only the centre zooms in, but the centre is often not the most interesting in a composition. But I'm happy that Samsung makes this camera, so I can use my cine lenses.

It has a small 1" sensor, but even this sensor is far too big for the Cinegon 5,5/1.8. So the photos are heavily cropped; the 21 MP are a bonus in this respect.

Here's one more from the bathroom :

Looking forward to your experiments with this lens Paul!

The 13 stops Hitech Firecrest has arrived. Almost neutral and with the filter holder a bit of grey at the outer edge of The frame at f/5.6, should be gone with f/8 (when the filter holder is exactly lined-up, no margins as the slightest rotation will cause problems). A very good result considering 100 mm filters were never intended to be used at 10 mm FF. All I need now is blue skies with white clouds moving.
