The Navitar is a C mount, 75mm prime, with max 1.3 aperture. It’s a chunk of metal and glass with what seems an endless focus throw, and nailing focus at wide apertures can really be a challenge. Shooting a 5 yr old and her dog madly racing a scooter is a pretty ambitious task.
Today I decided to get the NEX7 out again
Here, blurry action pic
Google, Day 4
This dog positively *amazes* me. She settled into our routine like she’s always lived here. I always heard the “myth” of the super grateful, perfect rescue dog, but she makes it a reality. Probably dumb luck. Or even more likely Cannelle doing a little magic from up there in dog Heaven
Whatever the reason, the end result remains. Marla is walking on sunshine
Our Dobermann was huge. Tough headed. Hard as steel and constantly challenging authority. He was extremely respectful of Marla, but still a hazard to her due to his sheer size and strength
Cannelle was tiny, smaller than a cat, vulnerable and meek. She made a great snuggling partner, but was nonexistant as a playmate
Google strikes the *perfect* middle ground between small and affectionate, and lively and playful
Unsharp again, but too cute to be deleted
They had a BLAST
And watching them was a treat
I’m sending the SPA refuge some of those pictures, I’m sure they’ll be pleased to see Google has found a good home
Super blurry, but captures the motion
Unsharp, dang !
All three of my cameras are for sale. It’s all in the hands of the dogs 😉
