    11.3K Plays / / 21 Comments

    Since the 1500's the men (and more recently, women) of the Brotherhood of the Camargue Horsemen have been tending to herds of horses and bulls in the unfenced coastal region of the Camargue in southern France. Working with the bulls and the beautiful white horses of the region is a noble tradition, but economic and social pressures are taking their toll on the professional gardians. And their way of life is becoming harder to maintain.

    • Sony A6000 Test "Sharpened"

      These are a few test shots from a friends photo shoot so excuse the camera shake. I really like the A6000 overall,the video images it produce are very organic and vibrant .The one thing I need to do "ASAP" is turn off C-AF and focus on subjects manually,in this specific test I would let C-AF lock on and then switch to MF via my custom button set up. The C-AF did well but noticed a lot of out of focus shots after reviewing,I mainly wanted to see could it be a quick solution for run & gun situations,lets say I will stick to manual focusing. UPDATE: After adjusting focus settings the auto-focus is very fast and accurate when locking on a subject. I set AF drive speed to "Normal" and AF Track Duration to "High". White balance may not be consistent the duration of a shot do to incorrect AWB. I also added slight sharpening in post. frame rate-24P creative style-portrait -3,-3,-3, shutter-50 iso-640 post-sharpening filter-neewer variable nd glass-sony 35mm 1.8 OSS editor-Vegas Pro 12

            • Sony A6000 Test "Liveview Grading App"

              First of all the Liveview Grading App is a app that can be downloaded from Sony's PlayMemories app store for $9.99 . In the app you can adjust settings similar to stock creative profiles but with more control. I discovered when dialed down the settings in the app gave flatter images than stock profiles, even flatter than the portrait profile. This was a test I did to compare the Liveview Grading App to the stock Portrait profile. The footage is straight from camera with only 6% sharpening added. The last two shots were actually IS0 800 and 1200. I can't technically explain what the app is doing but looking at scopes in my NLE its seems to be lifting the shadows quite a bit. I also noticed to get the same exposure with the app and stock profiles the ISO had to be almost doubled in amount. I think for A6000 users, combined with DRO the app is a good solution for high contrast scenarios. From my test I would never use it for lowlight situations,well at least not with contrast dialed down to the max. ....................................................
