  • Thanks. Carolina Raptor Center does a great job so I'm a big fan. The have these "Photo Wild" events twice a year, over a weekend.  You can get tickets for either day or a discounted price for 2...
  • Impressive shot
  • What can I say?  Awesome.
  • Thought the group might enjoy this photo of a Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) taken at the Carolina Raptor Center on Photographer's day. It's a great event for photographers and the proceeds go...
  • I suspect you are correct.  My point was really that better high ISO performance was of more value than more pixels.   And getting rid of the AA filter is more about getting better detail.  The...
  • Very interesting thread. Good to see agreement on most points. Deal Breakers. Must have or I skip this upgrade. - Better high ISO performance - Keep the 24 megapixel size - Faster processor and...
  • Thanks for this reply MossWings, very pertinent comments.  One point where I should have been clearer is that with today's most common 'desktop' display devices better high ISO performance and...
  • I often crop, usually not very much.  I usually shrink and save the final (internet) image by adjusting the file size in photoshop.  I always shoot raw, do much of post processing from a 16-bit TIF...

  • Created discussions New bigger sensors are silly
    This is something I feel strongly about.  But I have to allow that just maybe I'm out in left field on this point.  I did this as a blog post, and rather than troll for hit, the entire text is...
  • All great shots but that first image of the Crimson Rosetta is super sweet.
  • Sometimes you just get lucky. This pair of Sunbitterns flew up to a ledge right in front of my spot in the aviary at the North Carolina Zoo. I had a Sigma 120-400 on a Sony A77 at the time so it...
  • I have used the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX for over a year now.  It's been a terrific lens for me, completely happy with it.  These shots with an A77. My photo diary......
  • Just starting to experiment with the Zeiss 2/35 Biogon using the Metabones adapter.  Still early stages yet, but the lens so far is nothing less than amazing.  Seemed like a good idea to share a...
