    More experimentation while out climbing- this time primarily using the GH1 with an old legacy lens I acquired a while ago. Trying to get shallow depth of field.

    The takumar had yellowed considerably from the radioactive elements and only recently did I buy a UV lamp to clear it up - took about 2-3 days.

    Mosts shots shot at f2.0, with some at 1.4 and 2.8. 1.4 is a bit soft /glowy?

    Mixed in are some shots with the 14-45 lens or 20/1.7, as i was holding a tripod over the subject and could not control focusing.

    Hey, Stoney Point! I know right where that is, I've actually climbed it myself a coupel times (did it waaay to fast once and almost threw up when I got to the top). The beginning of your video reminds me of the little sample video I just did with my E-P2 & FD 50mm/1.8, heh! Small world! I haven't done anythign serious with video in more than 10 years so I'm just dabbling my way back into it, anxious to see what else you put together.
