  • Photo essay.
  • Replied in Some from Friday
    Here are a few pics from yesterday’s hunt (the day after the one depicted above). Hizzoner, The Chaser, at work at age 13, casting for scent. He still runs like a puppy most times, at age 13. Warms ...
  • Thanks for taking your time to help me out, Elliott! I've been finding the autofocus both fast and accurate.  Of course, nothing is perfect, so in situations (like the ones above) where it's ...
  • Replied in not sure?
    You know what all the old dogmen say, Buzz? "If you ain't the lead dawg, the view never changes." :-) :-D Well, I'm not the lead dog, so I guess I've gotten used to the never-changing view. :-P
  • Replied in love it
    I agree completely, Buzz - somehow missed that in my hurry to get these pics processed.  Thank you. I must learn to go more slowly.  How's this reprocessed version?
  • Created discussion thread A new Rx1r II PE
    The snow has finally melted enough that the dogs and I were able to spend a day afield with the new Rx1R II – hopefully producing some more interesting pics than we were able to do being more or ...
  • I would think so, but that's truly killing flies with a baseball bat.  Why carry all of that and deal with a cable when merely sticking a tiny, light and cheap spare battery in one's pocket does ...
  • A bit off topic here, but the technique of shutting a dominant left eye when shooting right-handed works fine with rifles and cameras; and it will keep you from having cross dominance problems ...
  • That's Chase - the 13 year old.  Puppy Joy is in the background. Honestly, the pics look the same to me; both in terms of my satisfaction with the composition and in where Chase is looking ...
  • Well, I wish you good luck with that growing up stuff, Deed. I haven't managed it yet. :-) As for the extra cost, I guess that's the price of living in Paradise. :-D You are talking about eye ...
  • After a few relatively warm days, the snow has finally melted enough that the dogs and I were able to get into the field yesterday.  It was beautiful - actually T-shirt weather for someone doing ...
  • Interesting.  Never really thought about this.  Made me go back and look over some recent images.  I'm right-handed and it looks like I have more images with the primary subject on the right than ...
  • Thanks for taking your time to answer my question, Bob.  Some really nice stuff on your Flickr account!
  • My post wasn't a complaint about this camera. It was simply an effort to answer the OP's question; and maybe to provide some additional insight to the effect that changing batteries when it's ...
  • I've had as few as 63 shots before the battery went TU when afield in bitter cold weather. The batteries are small and light and it's easy enough to carry some spares in a warm inside pocket. The ...
  • Very Nice, Bob!  I like the heavy post-processing.  Anything you are willing to share? Looks like you were lucky and didn't get as much snow as we did. Enjoy your new camera!  I must send mine ...
  • I know I threatened more interesting pics, but I failed. Having nurse coverage yesterday, we did try to hunt, but the cover has held the snow, so it's still at least mid-thigh deep - a good bit ...
  • I see and I get it - finally  :-(  Your crop IS better.  And... trust me when I tell you that I need all the help I can get - yours is much appreciated.
  • Yes, Iván, English was spoken in school, even back then, but PA Dutch (the dialect of German, not Neiderlandisch Dutch) was spoken around the farm. Most kids only went to school for a few years ...
