Dumb title. This is a single raw exposure shot of the manual advance wheel on an old hosiery knitting machine.

I'm adopting the compact Sony NEX platform for my urbex work and this is the 16mm prime again on the NEX-3. It's okay stopped down but it does have quite a bit of CA (chromatic aberration) which the NEX does not correct in-camera. You have to fix it in post. In fact, I'd describe the CA from the 16mm as AWFUL.

Hopefully the late model NEX-C3, NEX-5N, and the new NEX-7 address automatic CA correction when outputting JPG files (which this isn't anyway -- shot RAW, but still).

I should note that I am quite taken with the NEX-3 and also bought a NEX-5 body for the IR remote capability and to shoot without changing lenses in dirty areas (16mm possible with fisheye on one camera, 18-55 kit on the other). These will be my new light-weight Urbex kit.
