  • …surprisingly good, Ron. And really beautiful the robin… Cheers - Klaus
  • Commented on Orchid in blue in the Macro - Plant(s) challenge

    That's really great, kikivrany. Very special illumination and contrasts.
    Cheers - Klaus

  • Great explanation, Kikivrany. Thank's for the effort. Cheers - Klaus
  • Hi I don´t really understand your problem. For me M-mode is great for flash in mixed light situations (where you want an exposure partially using ambient light). I just adjust the exposure ...
  • Hi, Ron At 1:07 it opens it wide mouth widely :-O Nice show. I suppose that the K3 is better or this then the K5 (that doesn't have many fps at higher resolutions). Cheers - Klaus
  • Hi Mark I can't see that longitudinal or axial CA on your example (a Tamron SP 300/5,6 I owned had a lot). Cheers - Klaus
  • Hi My good old Tamron SP 90/2,5 is really great for portraits (and for weddings and similar events). But it should be the 52BB version (not the 52B, that seems to have problems with the reflections ...
  • Replied in Mark...
    Thank's Ron, for posting these images. The new TC seems to be good. Me, too. The most difficult thing is to get perfect focus on birds, and a TC definitely helps to achieve it. Cheers - Klaus
  • Hi kikivrany Very good exposure on the interesting examples you show. I am using this mode for fill in too, mostly with good results, and as I normally use TAv, it's quicker then changing to M-Mode. ...
  • Hi Zvonomir Very interesting. I didn't know much about this part of history of technology, and less about the recovery of older concepts. Cheers - Klaus
  • Hi I don't know this model, but as it has a focus clamp, I suppose it won't have Quick-shift. In this case, you shouldn't turn the focus ring when the motor is engaged. You may damage it. For quick ...
  • Replied in Robins?
    Hi, Mark How different are the robins you have over there than the ones we have en Europe: And here a more normal one, without the effects of the wind: Cheers - Klaus
  • Good shot. Very spacial impression of the web. It's not an easy object. Cheers - Klaus
  • Thank's Ron. Great news. I will wait a bit, but when prices are coming down, for sure I will get one. Cheers - Klaus
  • Great photos. I like most the close ones, 3 and 4. Macroshooters look for detail :-) It´s a beautiful animal! We have a similar species over here: Ardea purpurea. Cheers - Klaus
  • Hi, Gerry I use a similar diffuser for the onboard flash with my F 100/2,8 macro. I think it´s the most effective diffuser construction for macro, and is very easy to carry, extremely cheap…. Cheer ...
  • Isn't the K01 white balance more natural then the Sigma's? The Pentax may be a bit cool, but my impression is that the Sigma is too warm and yellowish Cheers - Klaus
  • Replied in Alternatives
    That looks good and useful (but mine has been cheaper ;-) ) That's true. Some day I will add some solution to fix the flash in its position. Should be easy. Meanwhile I have a chinese hotshot-cable ...
  • Hi Some months ago I have built this slide duplicator. It is not pretty, but it works, and I didn't have to buy anything! I have put the map on top as the onboard flash, even in pttl wireless ...
  • Great news. This time the european price is lower then in the US (399€ is about 540$). I think that has never happened before. Anyway, I recently have bough the AF Rear Converter 1,7x, and I am ...
