from a yesterdays “spontaneous short and fast shoot” - 4 hours for 3 pictures … lots of skandinavian beer and a good amount of first listening the new baby at a friends place

I can’t wait to see some of the results! I’ll be posting some shots of my “portable” work setup here shortly…they were taken with my GX9, Kamlan 1.1 and the 25mm Lumix Sumilux 1.4

nice Tyler - sounds quite “open”

We are a bit curious ourselfes this time - developed them yesterday night after the shoot and saw immediately that the negatives got quite dark. We pulled a bit hard and wanted some moody situation displayed with the set.
My buddy moved a few weeks ago and has not finished the “labor”. At the end of the week he will enlarge and also scan the negatives for me. So I´m quite nervous about the outcoming :slight_smile:

Thank you, @taronlissimore for really taking care of me with this. Has anyone seen a comaprison of the Elegia to the Elex anywhere…

There’s a very brief comment on this in my review of the Elegia:

Of the headphones in my collection, the Clear and the Elex are the closest sounding to the Elegia - in fact they’re very close both tonally and in terms of timbre. If you were after a closed-back Elex, then you don’t need to look any further on that front. The Elear are a significant departure from all three, and without a pad-swap (to the Elex or Clear pads) do not really make the grade here.

… and …

From a purely technical perspective, the Elegia have resolution and clarity, as well as micro-dynamic performance that falls somewhere between the Elex/Elear and the Clear and otherwise perform on about the same level as the Elex.

And then the frequency response plot for both of them (see measurement details here), aligned at 1 kHz and using my custom calibration:

I was feeling that comparing the Elex and Elegia reminded me of playing loud music in my room as a child with the door open (elex) and mother screams close that door (Elegia). more on first impressions… later… and thanks

Hmmm very nice. I am a focal fan myself. Great pictures by the way. Headphones.com takes great care of its customers I am a big fan.

wow - very nice - with the 25 f1.4?
tint is a bit strange because of the coloured window - I believe? Edit: Think it was intended this way for a clynical look

and purple again :slight_smile: how long is it? I prefer 1 or 1.2m (max 4feet)
is this a 4.4 > XLR adapter for the Cayin(?)
also thought about such a solution instead of buying 2 cables

Beautiful photo. Taken with the new a7?

No, it was my Panasonic GX9, Kamlan 50mm 1.1 lens…I’m still learning my way around the new A7iii, figuring out which lenses I have do what etc… but soon, I’ll be rocking majority of shots with the A7iii. It almost feels like cheating using the A7iii, I don’t have to work nearly as hard to get a “good” shot with it compared to my GX9. But I know the GX9 and the lenses I have for it better…plus it is tiny and easy to carry in comparison to the A7iii

Honestly, really falling in love with the photography hobby! Such a fun thing to do.

Yup. If I’m out somewhere that I think I’ll want to “capture the moment” I’ll always bring a camera. Phone cameras have improved significantly, but nothing beats a larger sensor and good glass. Looking forward to future pics with the a7. Enjoy!

Phones have come a long way though. And you’re always armed with one.

For sure. ‘The best camera is the camera that you have on you’ rings a lot of truth.

Yes - with apps like “snapseed” you can Edit your phones pictures easily on the go
Snapseed brings filters as on instagram but the “tools” are stronger - similar to a RAW converter like Lightroom
The “export” options are great for Downsizing your pictures - that helps for example with some forums regulations on file size and resolution

I’m a big fan of photoshop express! It’s available on Android and iOS and is free! I think…

Yes it is. Was preinstalled on my Samsung Note 10.1 Tablet. Works also fine
Lightroom Mobile is another solution I sometimes use with clients, because you can share a shoot and can rate and flag pictures … write notes… they see it in the browser - no app install needed on this side

I need to use the rating system in Lightroom more…makes it easier to delete unwanted photos lol

I often load a shoot in Lightroom on the PC or notebook and syncronise it
so I can later go thru the pictures on the tablet while away from home and start rating
first round I give 1 star to pictures for unwanted
2 for ok pics and 3/4 for the hero shots
While editing I flag or set +1 star each finished pic and go to the next- so you can always search for 3stars or 3and higher for example
If you shoot a Panorama- you can flag the batch with one colour… or flag with another colour pics to be refined later in Photoshop …so many ways leed to the point:)
use less the mouse and more the Keyboard- you will become fast while muscle memory kicks in
