First shot with the converted LifePixel Rebel 350.  Well, not the first shot, but the first posted shot.  Ah, what a pleasure.  As soon as UPS arrived with it, I tore the package apart, and ran out to the park to try it.  Everything was just the way it should be.  The focus (this was with the 30 mm Sigma) was dead on (though I didn’t try anything at f1.4).  Shutter speeds were as if the camera were normal - maybe even more speed when shooting foiliage.  And basically, I could walk around with the thing as I’ve been doing with any normal camera for the past few decades - which is to say I could let my imagination dictate the shots.

This was taken in shade with the spots of sunlight here and there.  f5.6, 1/160th of a second, ASA 400.

I’ll write more as I get a chance to but first impressions - just what the doctor ordered.
