Bike Trip

Posted on Sunday, April 10, 2022 by Seb

This week, I’ve broke my piggy bank and bought the Nikon Z5 with the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f4 S Lens, so I’m going Full Frame now ! Fortunately, after days of rain and just a little sunny evening, the weather was good enough to do a bike trip around the Canal de la DeΓ»le in Lille and its neighborhood.

I’ve took the opportunity of this little trip to test my new toy. Along with the kit, I’ve took the FTZ II adapter ring so I can also use my DX lens with this camera.

The pathway was a good opportunity to do a perspective shot. I'm quite satisfied by the foreground blur.

These blossoming trees were beautiful and contrasted a lot with the others around.

Switched to the telephoto lens to take pictures of a seagull and another bird I've didn't recognized. The FTZ II ring seems quite transparent despite using a DX lens on a full frame camera.

I've tried to shot the seagull while it was taking off but too late, and I've forgot to set burst mode . But the bokeh on this shot is nice too for something made in hurry 😁
