New York City – American Museum of Natural History

img_1303-2We took a trip to the American Museum of Natural History in NYC, I took many photos. A good day to go is Sunday. Saturday is very packed and everybody is irritable and hot. Try carrying some water and a map of the museum, it helps. Some of the exhibits cost more money so bring some extra funds. I really enjoyed my time here. I’ve been here many times as a kid, but as an adult there is a greater appreciation of everything shown here.

Below is my equipment list. Play some music and enjoy the photos. Peace!!!

img_1303-2This is the Commlite mount adapter, it allows you to put Canon lenses on Sony cameras and use the auto focus feature. I love it, I used it yesterday and it worked so well. The auto focus is not as fast as I would like it to be, but for the price its not that bad. I tested a few lenses on it. The Sony camera I use is the Sony a6000, a great mirrorless camera. I particularly like the Canon 50mm lens with the a6000, they work well together. For photos this works great, but for film and video it is not a great combination. If you are OK with using manual focus then you can get excellent results. I have seen some more expensive converters on amazon about 3 times the price of this one. In my personal opinion, the converter I buy shouldn’t be worth more than the lens itself. I think for more professional photographers this would be an option, but if you’re just a beginner save the money and go with this one.

(Canon 10-22mm, 10-18mm, 24mm & the 50mm f1.8)

A few weeks earlier I purchased another converter for $14, but that was a piece of garbage. Be cheap, but don’t be too cheap haha. This lens didn’t have autofocus, it basically just connected my lenses to the camera and nothing else. I couldn’t even manual focus. With my next purchase, I can say I found what I was looking for with the Comix Mount.

Below are photos of my a6000 with a Canon 10-22mm lens connected to it using the Comix lens converter.

My rating for this purchase:
