Evergreen and St Joseph Cemetery – Leadville, CO

EvergreenCemetary

Amazing cemeteries in Leadville, CO. They’re completely dilapidated and falling in ruin. The forest has taken over the older parts of the cemetery and nearly all the plots have collapsed in on themselves.

Taken with the Sony NEX 5n with the SEL1855.

I couldn’t wait… Sony α NEX-5n

Sony Alpha NEX-5n

Sony Alpha NEX-5n

I couldn’t wait for the NEX-7 so I got the NEX-5n. I was so looking forward to the 7 though. This month is going to be pretty busy. Going on vacation and soon after I’ll be hitting GDC in San Francisco. Both need a still camera and a video camera (although I’m told that we already have both, why do we need ANOTHER ONE) and my preorder for the NEX-7 wasn’t set to ship until the day I was to leave for SF. Obviously too late for either trip.

Alpha Camera with 18-55mm lens | α NEX-7 with E-mount 18-55mm lens | NEX-7K/B | Sony USA

My current drool device is the Sony a NEX-7 camera now delayed due to the Thailand flooding that has wreaked havoc on Toyota, Sony, Nikon and other companies who have manufacturing plants located there. More info here.

Sony α NEX-7

Digital Photography Review has a great, in-depth review for the Sony a NEX-7. They give it an 81% score, which is about the highest of any “Mid-Level” camera they’ve reviewed. This is about as technical a review as you can get on the NEX-7 at the moment.

Steve Huff has a great review with some really nice sample shots and video.

The drool-able features are as follows:

  1. Interchangeable lenses supporting a range of manufacturers (with proper mount adapter)
  2. 1080 60p video (slow motion baby!)
  3. Relatively small body
  4. Programmable, tri-navi button/dial scheme
  5. Touch screen interface (kind of slow though)
  6. A whopping 24.3 megapixels (really?)
The NEX-7 has a smaller member in the family by the name of NEX-5n with virtually the same features, but it lacks the viewfinder (can be added via hot shoe adapter), a few handy physical buttons, and a flash (comes as an attachment to the hot shoe). The number 1 advantage the 5n has over the 7 is the “amazing” low light performance which ranks higher than many $1000+ cameras on the market.
Anyway, I’ve ordered it from the Sony Store. They say it may be shipping March 3rd. We’ll see!
