Using an old camera from 2005 in 2022

What could be more interesting than completing a commercial order for an old camera? Today we are talking about shooting on a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 camera with a 10 megapixel matrix.

DSC-R1 released in 2005. It has a Carl Zeiss T Vario-Sonnara lens. With a matrix of 21.5×14.4 mm, the lens has the equivalent of focal lengths of 24-120 mm. And the minimum aperture of F2.8 – F4.8 clearly shows that with a strong desire, the photographer can get background blur, but in general, the lens is not about that.Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 test sample raw

So, before you photos of the building Several photos of the ICube business center, located at the address: Moscow, Nakhimovsky prospekt, 58. Now finishing work is underway inside the center.

In the process of shooting these shots, a polarizing filter was used, but a tripod was not used. I also did not use the exposure bracketing function. The reason is that this function only works when working in jpg, but I need raw.

In order for you to understand what this Topaz gives for object and interior shooting, I will show you one photo. This is the “ear” on the left. It decorates the neighboring house with my original object. Below is a fragment with Topaz processing and the source.

Of a number of these cameras, those that do not have an infrared filter are of particular creative interest. Until now, the DSC-F717 in night mode with blocked IR sensors and a wound IR filter is used to get special shots. Below is an example.
