Wild Game Sundowner on Flickr.While digging through some old photos from Namibia in 2012 I felt a little embarrassed. Not only because I shot many photos in jpg but also because I liked a few that actually turned out really bad. Lucky enough there is a solution for that - so sharing old reedited photos now. Enjoy!

Sony Z1 compact

Well, apart from it being waterproof the Xperia Z1 compact does come with a nice camera which also says “20.7MP” on the box. So I went out, took a few shots which all looked very nice and thought: Well done Sony! Once I was back home looking at image on the computer screen I noticed that the pictures were not 20.7MP but rather 8MP. Which is still fine for a smartphone cam.

Hackeschlie Wiesn WC on Flickr.There has been a lot of talk about the camera of the Sony Xperia Z1 compact. Not all of it was “positive” feedback. But it’s water resistant, has a 20MP cam and I will test it a little more in the next weeks as sort of a minimal gear setup. We will see.

Alter Peter View on Flickr.Since it is rather rainy atm in Munich, here is an impression of Munich rooftops on a sunny Sunday - which only seems as an implicitness. Stitching was done of course with hugin (you can find a link under Photo URLs). Enjoy!

Treetop Breakfast on Flickr.Ever had breakfast and noticed a strange noise from outside the window? I do regularly because of this little feller. He is living next to me (more precisely next to my window) and likes a healthy breakfast. Enjoy!

Inside Amalienburg on Flickr.After some time without taking any photos I went to the Schloss Nymphenburg today. It was hot (well above 30°C), but I walked all around the park to find the “small” castles which are part of Nymphenburg. They are, in my opinion, more beautiful and worth shooting than the main castle. But you have to walk quite a bit. Enjoy!

Clouds over Frühlingsfest on Flickr.The changing weather of the last days can lead to some very interesting clouds. This was taken at the “Frühlingsfest”, which is just like the Oktoberfest on the Theresienwiese in Munich. As you may guess there was quite a bit of rain shortly after I have taken this picture. However the 6D proved once again as a great  companion for free-hand night shots. Enjoy!

Olympiapark on Flickr.Another park one needs to visit when in Munich: The Olympiapark where the 1972 Summer Olympics took place. You can visit the “Olympiastadion (which used to be the home of FC Bayern München) for 3,-€. You can also have a guided tour of the pavilion-roof construction, which is 41,-€, or you rent a boat on the “Olympiasee”. You can of course also visit the Olympia-Eissportzentrum (home of the EHC Red Bull München), the Olympiaturm, Sea Life München or simply climb the olympic mountain to take some panoramic photos of the city. I choose the last option but I will certainly be back. Really nice place.
Enjoy!

Timelapse for the QX10

One thing I did not understand when Sony released the QX10 was that the standard app, PlayMemories, did not feature obvious additional shot modi like timelapse. But thanks to Thibaud Michel this has changed: Timelapse - Sony Camera is here!
