Review on SLR Magic Cine 50mm f/1.1 Lens for Sony E-Mount

A big eye is always attractive to photographers.

The lens was tested in various situations and lighting condition before using this lens for my job. (A wedding day photography was the first official job for the lens, and will be posted very soon.)

I like the performance of the lens when wide open. A bit difficult to focus , but when using the EVF on my Sony A7s, it is no problem at all.

Some comparison while the aperture stopped down.

Not surprisingly, when 1 or more stops down, the images will be sharper, e.g. the fringes of the object in focus.

Vignetting for the lens is quite obvious. I tried to calibrate the the raw files (not applied in the images above) in Lightroom and found that the vignetting problem could be resolved by the around +60 or more.

Will upload some wedding day photos taken by this lens soon.

Nadia & John Wedding Day Photos

Nadia & John is a romantic and happy couple. They had their wedding with wonderful planning but very easy-going and let me to plan how to shoot all the scenes. With the trust from N & J, I put all the effort on capturing the happiest and genuine moments throughout the day.

I love black & white photos a lot, it seems that they could help us to freeze the moment and to add some wonderful mood on them.

Gentlemen appeared on the day.

Cheers! Gals!

The love from Dad to the Daughter. When they walked into the church, it seemed that Dad was delivering the fortune to the newly weds.

I love this photo much, you can see many details and emotions express on everyone’s face.

Love is witnessed!

The laughter was recorded.

This is the first time that I shoot at night of Bathenie. It’s just superb!

Happy tears ran out from the beautiful bride.

Dancing session was the most excited and happy session during banqueting. Everything was happy and exciting. I love to capture candid moments and I really enjoyed in it.

Thanks Nadia & John! Thanks for hiring us to be your wedding photographers and we enjoyed much.

Ron & Joseph (Pre Wedding Photo)

Working in the field for Eleven Years by now.

Sometime, I see myself is bottlenecked. Yes, I tried so many ways to GET OVER IT, so that I blend many different styles into my creations.

Sometime, I’m in a maze. Yes, so I love to talk to my clients and to try to understand their needs and concern about their feelings.

Ron and Joseph’s love begins in HKUST. We worked out many things after many many meetings, whatsapp and tele conferences. And we’d just started.

Hong Kong Adventist College is a really nice campus for me. I always forget I’m still in Hong Kong while I’m shooting, and it’s easy to forget about the time flies. Back to campus and back to our 那些年.

Run! Run for your FUTURE!

Love ever lasts.

Comments from Ron and Jo :

Gary, we love the photos and some really gave us big
surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have done a great job~ Joe said the photos are
customized for us and he likes some moody tone as well~ we are very
satisfied and had so much confidence on you on our Big day!!!

After reading the comments, surely I’m very very very happy! But this recall my memory for being an individual wedding photographer. 11 yrs ago, there are not much individual wedding photographers, many of us are from different companies. I cherish and love that eras, since I’m free on styles and creations.

What make us (individual photographer) to be differed from others is , our Creativity , our Mind and our Passions! I can now seeing many and many wedding photographers are rushing into the market but they are not doing their own things but  to produce many CAN Food for clients and the CAN foods are with very very similar style!

When can we make changes? People can change and can be changed. But how about our industry?

Jasmine & Jason Wedding Day Photo

I really Love this picture! With all guests praising and Love shown in this photo!

Jasmine and Jason came to my studio to have the first visit around 1 yr ago and during the meeting, I can really feel how passionate they’re with their wedding and their expectations on wedding photos.

To a Wedding Photographer, a high expectation from clients usually bring upon 2 points, 1st; Happy to see such client and hope to cope with those difficulties and looking forward to have some breakthroughs. 2nd; pressure. LUCKILY, my work is appreciated by them, haha!

Gwa is really important to all chinese brides, the design, the sewing techniques and the shine of the Dragons and Phoenixes.

Stylish and Elegant.

A very beautiful team of bridesmaids fair-welling the newly weds!

I love this photo much! So childish!

The Magic Moment!
