  • Replied in Yes!

    Great portrait and nice colors indeed : Well done ! Better see at 100% for the amazing details ;) But what lens did you used ? I can't think of a 85mm macro ... o_O Any information about what flash ...
  • Amazing ! I already noticed you were pretty good in electronics and engineering when you repaired your Mazda, but this ... I managed to study some electrical engineering when I was young but I ...
  • Miles, you're welcome. Stig, that's too bad as it's really a great lens ! To me it only lacks the CPL of the FA* 300 & 250-600. Did you finally managed to get parts to repair your lens ? Looking at ...
  • It's listed for ARRI, RED and BLACK MAGIC that seems to be the main manufacturers of professional video cameras. Not sure you can find PL to PKA adapters :( only for Sony and Canon EF mounts I guess. ...
  • Hi Jean-Philippe Nice family indeed ! Could you tell what kind of protection you used for 1200mm ? It should be interesting too for other lenses ... Regards, fredg PS: I guess the one with the ...

  • Hi! Nice flowers. I'll add a few snapshots from an exotic trip to Normandy for Honfleur's Butterflies * :) All shot with available light just before a nice hail storm ... Paradis ...
  • Lucky you Jean-Philippe ! Nice pictures of a rather difficult bird it seems ... that Zitting Cisticola is quite interresting ! http://www.oiseaux.net/oiseaux/cisticole.des.joncs.html on a french site ...
  • Just a tip from a french photographer about this lens : http://www.cmp-color.fr/pentax_645D_optiques1.html it seems it's not exactly a good lens with the 645D :( Regards, fredg PS: If you like ...
