Dec 11 2013, played around more with my camera this morning. I dropped an algae wafer into the tank to capture them going after it. Shooting fish with this camera, though, is really tough to try to get them in focus. I feel like manual focus is the best, since AF on tiny speedy fish drives the camera bonkers. So, what I tried to do was use the wafer as my focus point so the fish will descend into it and try to get some shots that way. I still need to figure out if I can get some close-ups with this lens even though it’s a 20mm ultra wide lens. And, by that, I mean, getting to the closest focusing distance the lens is capable of. So, it will not be a close up, per se, but, more like a “closer up.” I also don’t like to crop the photos, which is a tradition stemming from street photography and Henri-Cartier Bresson. Never crop photos and never use zoom lenses. This is the reason for me getting this Sony NEX 6 camera with a 20mm fixed lens. It was a bit more than the camera with standard zoom kits lens. But, I really wanted a “rangefinder-like camera.” And, this is the closest I could find at a reasonable price….
