Sony FE 28mm F2 vs 21mm F2.8 (using SEL075UWC wide converter)

This is just a quick test/review to see the difference the Sony SEL075UWC wide angle converter makes vs just using the 28mm lens by itself.  As you may know the lens goes from being a 28mm F2 maximum aperture to a 21mm f2.8. Full Specifications and detail can be found at Sony’s site here. I headed over the Golden Gate Bridge and took some photos to make the comparison.

Sony FDR-X3000 4K Action Camera mini review

I’ve had this little Sony 4k STABILIZED (Optically!) Action Camera for a few months now. I have gotten a chance to test it riding my bike down Conzelman road after making my way over the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, snorkeling  at Hanauma Bay in Hawaii, and making a timelapse video while camping at Steep Ravine on Christmas!  Basically it’s a really nice update over Sony’s older FDR-X1000 and I would recommend what I did. Sell that if you have it and pick up the new model! Continue reading “Sony FDR-X3000 4K Action Camera mini review”
