A wonderful video on a variety of things, including learning and teaching to see. Make sure to check out Edward Tufte’s website if you love such things. I learned a lot from his books (and I am still saving to attend a seminar).
What kind of lenses do you take on a trip to New Zealand? The choices could be many, depending on the camera system. The good thing is that I have a Sony Nex-7.
There are not many lenses for the Sony E mount. That way the choices are not many. I have not many lenses either and chose to take two. The lenses were my two favorites at that time:
- Sony 50mm f/1.8
- Sigma EX DN 19mm f/2.8
You could take millions of pictures in New Zealand. Don’t panic. You do not have to watch them all. I selected some for you and offer a video (unstabilized and ungraded) as a short vacation for you.
BTW: Next time I would go for the Sigma EX DN 30mm f/2.8 and a 18-200 for video. Enjoy.

I tried to find out what the impact of the ISO on video on the Nex-7, so I cycled through with the lens cap on. The noise was not that visible so I tried to do what you usually try to avoid. I added brightness and sharpening.
Let me know, what you think. For me it prooves my experiences, that videos start get noisy with ISO bigger than 800.
I was always fond of time lapses so I thought: Why not make my own?
I wanted to install the CHDK – an extension for Canon point and shoot cameras which makes them learn new tricks – on my Canon Powershot S95 anyway and had the opportunity to play around one evening. After the initial installation and my first try I had the following lessons learned
