Japan OpenSolaris Community Meeting 062709
By Jimgris-Oracle on Jun 28, 2009
The Japan OpenSolaris Community together on Saturday. Nice day (and night). About 60 people came by for the three sessions, two of which were in Japanese and the third in English. Then all three groups came together for a nomikai. I think the model works well to start integrating the Japanese and international OpenSolaris communities.
I used a new lens
for this event. My f/1.4 lens is getting fixed, so I borrowed Jon`s
50mm f/1.2, which is one scary smart lens. It`s a tad expensive, too,
so I was more than a little nervous shooting with it. Anyway, at f/1.2 the
focus is just razor thin. Focus on someone`s glasses and their entire face
is out. I messed up a few images that way, but by the end of the night
I was getting used to it. Amazing piece of glass. By the way, you can see Jon`s stuff
here. He`s one of the best photographers around.
