El photo’s NX10
[Sad and Beautiful] El Photo’s ‘Zoo’
I just bought the first camera in order to take the exhibition pictures of my friend. I learned to take pictures by myself, and didn’t take any lecture or something. I started taking pictures of zoo from 3 years ago and recently have worked with multiple exposure a lot. There’s Aura series with the theme of flower and Critical City series with the theme of city. I started working with Nikon D70 and now with the Samsung GX10 with 18-55mm and 50-200mm zoom lenses. I’ve been satisfied with the GX10 while using it for multiple exposure. Even though there are a lot of noises, it has great quality and good to use it.
After getting the NX10, I was thinking of how to use it. And I selected the most comfortable theme for me. It’s zoo series that I gave up after 2 years of shooting, because there had been no new feelings. Considering my style, zoo is a snap shot type, and the NX10 is also suitable for snap shot, because it’s small and light. To be honest, I tried to use it for multiple exposure, but sadly, the camera didn’t have such function.
A lot of animals in a zoo live in tropical areas, so most of them stay indoors in winder. Therefore, more pictures are taken inside than outdoors. Due to the poor light condition such as low light, untransparent windows, reflected light, and bars, it’s difficult to take shots. However, is this poor condition better to test the camera?
No matter how we consider them, they are not that happy, if they are not where they have to be. When looking at the eyes of giraffe, it reminds me of the story by German professor. “When I look into the eyes of animals, I feel sorrow in their eyes. They saying like ‘We(Animals) were together (Humans) , but you’ve gone too far now.
It was raining when I got to a zoo to take pictures. I intended to take little different shots from other typical shots. However, due to the rainy day and old place, the results were too dark and heavy. On the other hand, zoo is good, because they always allow us to take different shots, I think.
Sometimes, I was surprised at a scene I didn’t expect to see. During rainy or winter season with less people in a zoo, animals come to me with more caution. Someday In winter, a sleeping leopard woke up and showed some interest to me. It kept looking at me taking shots and when it couldn’t see me anymore, it put its head up and looked at me. In a picture taken at the moment, its eyes were shiny.
I used to be surprised at animals, because of this. Among giraffes, one of them moved to one side and all of them looked at the same direction. It looked weird to me and took a shot at the moment. Later, I found out there was a sick giraffe segregated.
In a zoo, brand new technology of cameras is not that important. Picture with wrong focus or noise might be better to see and too dark or too bright pictures also leave a good feeling. Of course, good AF and less noise allow us more freedom of expression.
The shooting condition inside the zoo wasn’t that good. Even with a DSLR camera, sometimes it failed to get a focus. In this situation, MF is better to set a focus, so a DSLR with live view or mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is better than optical view finder. But when it comes to live view, due to increasing noise, it used to be difficult to find out if the focus was correct or not.
The most outstanding feature of Mirrorless interchangeable lens is that there’s no mirror and it causes less shock by a mirror.
It shows great detail in low ISO, but I didn’t like noise in dark part. While in high ISO, it had less noise, but low details. However, compared to previous modes, it’s quite great, so I like it. And there’s no weakness I’ve found in the lens performance. The problem line in the left side caused by firmware update or noise in low ISO has been solved, I think.
Samsung RAW Conveter3
Most of the pictures used in the review were taken in RAW file and they have been converted to JPEG by RAW file converter (SRC3). The SRC3 is a program based on Silkypix famous as an RAW file correction program and I already used the SRC2. Therefore, there was no difficulty to use it. It provides strong correction functions without influencing the original like Lightroom from ADOBE and intuitive white balance control and highlight recovery function are the strength. It has the closest colors to Samsung camera, so for the most similar color feeling of the original pictures, the SRC3 is the most appropriate. At present, it’s the only program recognizing the NX10 and there’s not much difference from the previous version SRC2.
While using the SRC3, unexpected program stop of the program was the biggest problem. It used to happen in the SRC2, and it’s the same in the SRC3. Now I’m using both SRC3 for color adjustment and Lightroom for file management. I hope this would be upgraded later as a Samsung user.
My first impression on the NX10 is that it wasn’t that small. With the 18-55mm zoom lens installed, it’s more. However, compared to other previous DSLR cameras, it was much smaller. It can be hung on a neck and especially with the 30mm pancake lens, the mobility was much better. And design. I didn’t like it before I saw it. However when holding it, it was different. The great grip in my hand was great enough to put my prejudice for the design away.
However, I hope various design lineups will be created later. There were also some more weaknesses like a little slow change between pages and the lack of additional functions such as multi exposure, and panorama.
Yoo Ji’s NX10
Some traveler called himself as “Traveling person”
Because I like that, I called myself “Photographing person”.
I don’t know when, but from someday, I watched life through pictures. Therefore, friends have been more precious, and life has become new to me. After breaking up, I used to take shots of my sorrow and wanted to show the identity of high school students through photos. I still want to study photos, and take small, but meaningful shots through the pictures in the life rather than academic pictures.
I always carried a P&S file camera, but due to the limit of expression, I wasn’t fully satisfied with photos, and my DSLR was too big to carry around. That’s why I was considering buying a new bag to carry the DSLR. At that moment, I met the NX10. When I saw the NX10 first, I liked the cute, but firm body, and the compact size fit in my small bag.
At the first day of the NX10, I met my friends in a small café filled with a low red light, mirror ball in the dark spot, and great music. In this pace, I thought I could talk about anything easily.
Memory of first love
Today’s theme is love
By looking at the poster “First Love’ and scribbling, we started talking about our first love.
Space taken by a person or object. But it also means a trace after some change in a person or object.
“Love leaves a trace”
Love leaves an extremely big space that other love can get in, and after the love, it leaves an extremely huge trace that can’t be filled with anything. It’s so firm that can’t be recovered. That’s why people never forget the love.
While listening to the story of my sister, one of my friends in early 20s imagined something fun. It was interesting stories made by youth.
A prince must have belief to meet the owner of the shoes. He didn’t know the address, name, or anything. But he couldn’t control his mind, because he fell in love. Then, he was looking for her with her glass shoes. He was also looking for someone who fit in him, even if it was fragile like a glass shoes. He must have wanted to meet her sincerely.
We feel that “I’m getting older now!’, not when we found some winkles on our face or got easily tired. It’s when we deny real love. It’s when I found myself can’t love someone due to worrying about breaking up.
When I’m confused, I used to push it up. For me, the past only means hurts. I can’t hide or forget it. I just keep it in my mind. It will cause more pain to me someday, but all I can do right now is just to keep it and try to move on by trying to forget his cell phone number.
No answer for anyone
Memory of the NX10
On the way home, when looking at pictures in the camera, I was surprised. At first, the amazing quality in the AMOLED. This vivid and clean quality will be great enough for me. Also the quality in the computer monitor was not bad. Sharpness and quality in dark part were also very good. I took pictures in ISO 3200, because light wasn’t enough. I wanted to the camera status in a bad situation. Of course in ISO 3200, there was a lot of noise. However, I thought the noise didn’t disturb the photo. This noise in a low light condition was acceptable to me.
But because it has Contrast AF, compared to phase based AF, the AF speed was a little slower. However, in a big contrast difference, it could set the AF regardless of intensity of light.
