Creality 3D CR-10 – Beginner Cura Settings

I recently bought a new 3D Printer.  I ordered it from Gearbest at first but after a month of waiting and it still wasnt shipped i ordered it from Banggood instead and had it in my workshop 5 days later. Amazingly fast.

First thing i did was the remove the painters tape and print directly on the bed with hairspray. Works great.

I thought i would share my basic Cura settings for the printer:

Revisited: Tamron 150-600 vs Canon 400 L

Update: Please check out the newer post http://camahoy.com/2014/01/13/finally-tamron-150-600-vs-canon-400-f5-6l/

The weather is so bad this year. No sun, no snow, just grey clouds. Thats why this was shot at ISO 3200. I promise you to make something at ISO 100 or similar, wont make much of a difference.
The Canon lens doesn’t have a UV-filter anymore, from the initial test in my appartment, they looked equally good when UV removed. But outside, the same thing appears again, Tamron looks sharper.

Ive tried to test out the auto focus as well, but there simply aren’t that money birds around this time of the year. But all i can say is that it does hunt sometimes, but so does the Canon. It take a while to figure out how a lens behaves, so i need more time for a verdict.

I promise to update more as soon as ive got something to show. I work crappy hours for me to do day light shooting the next few days. But i will borrow a Canon 70D to show how it looks on a crop sensor for the people rocking the 7D and similar.

Samyang (Rokinon) 35mm f1.4 vs Sigma 35mm f1.4

Ive finally gotten around selling my Samyang 35mm since i got the Sigma.
I had a few hours left with the Samyang so i thought, what the hell. Put them head to head in a few short clips.

There are 2 things i haven’t noticed before doing this test.The Sigma has a wider field of view which i found pretty odd. It’s easily noticeable in my clips. The tripod was never re-positioned and the settings was never changed. I personally prefer it was wide as possible.

But on the plus side the Samyang seems to be maybe a 1/3 step brighter.

Give and take i guess. If you want some real field use out of the lens i would go for the Sigma, in a heartbeat. But if you want it for landscape, night or video.

Sony DSC-HX50 – Video samples & comparisons

The HX-series from Sony has always been one of my favorite camera series. It’s the perfect point and shoot for most people. Easy, fast and super good video.

I gave the Sony HX50 a spin a few months back, but forgot to add it here.

This explains that there is a difference in field of view when using differect stabilization modes.
