F-mount will still work with an adapter.   

 

  • Compatible with new Z nikkor lenses, over 360 F-mount nikkor lenses and a variety of Nikon system Accessories
 I know but

 

Hmm. Apparently I can’t insert a less than sign.

 

Adapters “less then symbol” native.

It is a native Nikon adapter.


I know but any extra glass is worse. It will work fine I know, but it still means new lenses.

Extra glass? The adapter is simply a mount flange. Has zero effect on function of the lens or camera. DPReview has a video of them nearly exclusively using f-mount lenses and doing autofocus tests among other tests.

Wait, que?

Is it a physically added on adapter? Does the camera come with an f mount built into it, or does this f mount adapter mount onto the Z mount body? If the body is a z mount and this is basically a sandwich plate, how is there no glass. The focus of the f mount lens will not end up on the sensor if it is spaced forward of aft of where the focus is designed to be, so you need a lens to change the focus distance. Unless they designed the z mount mating surface to body sensor dimension specifically to be able to put a hollow glassless sandwich adapter on the Z mount for F mount lenses to still be in focus, it would need glass in it.

Maybe they did do this? I haven’t looked at it yet since I am super not in the market.

So I can’t quite tell, and no one seems to be specifically saying it, but how could there not be a lens in there to refocus the light coming out of the lens to the sensor. The focus point of the light coming out of the body side of the lens barrel is extremely precise so it’s not blurry to the sensor, so that distance is critical.

This clearly is creating a distance that is larger than normal from the lens barrel to sensor dimension. Unless maybe the camera can purposely focus “wrong” which results in it being correct for the sensor, but pretty sure that wouldn’t work.

There has to be glass in there. Look how far it spaces it.

Look inside an F-mount and see how far the flange distance is between the mount and the sensor, then compare that to the Z-mount with the adapter.

Really happy with this. This was only 11 shots, 3200 ISO, 30 second exposure @ f4. 70-200 with a 1.4x on it, so 280mm wide open at F4, the 1.4 takes a stop out of it. 2 dark frames as well.

 

Once we get our gear and setup better, I truly think we will have some unbelievable shots! If I can get my 200-500 f5.6 on there at full 500, and get a 2 minute exposure with it, o boy. And then let it go for an hour and get 30 shots to stack.... o yea, I am ready.

Stellar(lol) shot Ligi! Don't forget longer lenses allow for shorter exposures of stars before you get star trails. There is a calculation for it based on focal length that escapes me right now but generally longer lenses mean shorter exposures.

Lol thx.

And yea I think it’s 600/focal length. But we will be able to get longer with better gear. My two friends I do it with, both brothers, both have setups. The one dudes is far better, but he has never even used it. It came broken and he has been to lazy to RMA it. Once we get that mount goin, we will easily be able to do 2 minutes with easily 15lbs of gear on it. With an automatic star tracker, hopefully 5-10 minutes. But at that point you start to really care about light pollution... this shot has no filters, but I’ll likely need a light pollution filter. They make one that mounts inside the body tho! That way only need one, not a few for all the glass.

iPhone pic from LA of the SpaceX falcon 9 heavy launch last night. First time they flew an actual payload AND have the first stage land back on the pad as far as I know. At least the first on the west coast. Wish I had a real camera on me, but I didn’t think it would be this spectacular and clear! Was amazing to see, we could easily see the boosters ignite to course correct and the what I assume to be cold burn maneuvering thrusters fire to correct trajectory. So bad ass, maybe one of the coolest thing I have ever seen. I can’t even imaging the math behind this........

Photo and Lightroom edits all done on iPhone. Xs’s camera is pretty dope, that’s a decent crop and it’s still pretty detailed! Just wish I had more dynamic range so the boosters weren’t so overexposed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Recently started working with a guy who owns a classic car dealership and he's been bringing his cars to us to work on and I also worked a photography deal with him for advertising. Might even try to sell images direct to the new buyers. The red '86 Porsche Turbo was one of his as well.

The 1964 1000 is finally "done". It needs some work, its running really ruff. Sounds and feels like it has a massive cam in it, and it doesn't :/. Slight cam, nice heads and intake manifold, and a good carb, but it isn't tuned at all. Sounds and smells like its very rich and timing is pretty jacked up. But, its runs! Tomorrow we will be trailoring it to the guy who installed the motor and trans to get it tuned a bit better. He probably won't get it dialed in perfectly, but it will be good enough to drive. Its a Jegs 350 crate motor and trans. Was only like 4500 for both so that the level of motor it is, although the cam and head swap did come after the fact. For the AC, I guess the heads it had didn't have some mount point required, I don't know.

 

All pretty much at 6400 ISO, speed ranges depending on light. F1.4 @58mm.
