Had 15 minutes with the brand new Nikon D3300. Enjoy.

Still havent gotten much luck with getting better weather to try out the Tamron 150-600 for real.
We’ve had 8 hours of sun in total in 2014. :S
Shot at 600mm, handheld at around 1/250. The lack of contrast is because there were fog mixed with light snow fall 🙂
Bonus (Still high iso since there is still no sun around, f8 tho, as people wanted):
Finally got some sun, but the snow came with out. Tried my best to please most people.
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.
Canon 100% Crop
Tamron 100% Crop
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.
Some random clips, more stuff coming. Just has quite the work load right now.
Please comment if you want me to try something out. I will be comparing it to my Canon EF 400mm f5.6L tomorrow. Wish i had a Sigma 150-500 to compare with as well. But when it comes to handling, the tamron is lightweight, fast and doesn’t sound like a small car when the IS is activated.

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.

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.

Since the brand new Nikon J3 doesnt have any antialiasing filter i thought it would be a good idea to try out their video mode. Nikon has recently managed to squeeze out pretty good quality and resolution compared to Canon. Video coming later.
