Maiden Camellia

If a three-year-old child took a picture of a flower, it would look like this. They will put what they are interested in in the center. This photo style is correct.

I took a picture in this situation. The EL Nikkor 150mm F5.6 lens is mounted to the Nikon Z 6 camera via a Nikon PB-4 bellows.

Sakura

I chose the EL Nikkor 150mm F5.6 lens for a crisp and dignified depiction. I was surprised at the performance and power. After all, old Nikkor lenses are transparent and emotional.

Shooting style at this time. Bellows is not used. Although this is a very light and easy set-up, the resulting image is heavy and precise.

The End of Summer

I stood in my usual fixed spot for long-distance photography. What I'm looking at is the Tamagawa Bridge on the Keio Line. The EL Nikkor 150mm f/5.6 lens is very good at rendering straightforward, crisp, and precise images. The focal length of 150mm is in the range of professional use as a lens for photo enlargement. Of course, it is also designed to be used as a photography lens, so you can easily handle work in the infinity range.

I took the Nikon camera to my usual fixed point for lens testing. It is not a flat test chart, but a real three-dimensional world. It's beautiful to see the weed-like trees and grasses that grow without any care. The resolving power of the leaves is the scale for comparison.

Late Autumn

I put the autumn fruits in my camera bag and went out for a photo shoot. I mounted the EL Nikkor 150mm F5.6 lens on my Nikon Z 6 camera without using a bellows.

It is a 150mm telephoto lens with excellent micro-contrast characteristics, which seems to be an industrial Nikkor lens. I took a picture with a small camera in 35mm Leica format, using only the center of the vast image circle in luxury.

I walked a brilliant autumn day with this shooting set. The Nikon PB-4 Bellows is light and smooth to operate if the center of gravity is properly balanced. Focus adjustment is not a helicoid, but a method of turning the knob like a fine movement of a microscope.
