April 07,  2012  Warm Springs Georgia

This is an odd little town filled with nick knacks and curios. It is also home to the Roosevelt Little White house where President Roosevelt built a cottage so that he could enjoy the warm springs in hope that they would be beneficial for his polio. I gave the 35mm lens a good work out and in this series the 18mm appears only once. I may have used the 60mm macro but shots are not included here. The 53mm effective focal length of the 35mm makes it a good all round lens. It is slightly more intimate than the Fuji X100 effective 35mm. The F1.4 allows shots like in the interior of the museum and in the hotel lobby. I enjoyed the Velvia film emulation on the bright coloured odd things like the grate, clown etc. It is a good documentary lens and quickly snapped the signs with accurate colour balance and sharpness on the AF. Of course a polarizer may have helped with the newspaper but for the reflection shot I wanted the reflection. The last shot shows the good dynamic range. The contrast between the shadow and the white tile was 100%. To my naked eye I could see no detail in the dark. I was pleased how the camera could dig in and get something in the jpg right out of the camera. So too with the girl sitting on the sign leading to the Little White house. The sun was so hard she had to cover her eyes. The colours were rendered accurately.
