    No, sorry. Very close. But this is not a Horse Chestnut. Peace - Roger Hayslip

    A soggy end of the line for this flower... Mystery flower :-) Anyone care to guess what it is? Front walk... Bleeding... A little in camera filter action... Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • Thought I'd chime in since I normally use a 70-200 to shoot soccer - youth soccer (and have for years). I also use a 70-200 for baseball, basketball and american football. There are a few things ...
  • Life has been keeping me occupied and I haven't posted in a while. Here's some spring colors from my neck of the woods: Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • Hi Soheil, I believe you are correct. I was reading the manual tonight and noticed the Multiple Flash setting too. It allows you to set the flash power, number of flashes and frequency between ...
  • Quite the size difference between the Metz 58 and the 540 FGZ II! The 540 FGZ II's compact size, build quality and WR attributes are what peaked my interest. I do like the second reflector in the ...
  • I was fortunate enough to receive a new Pentax AF 540FGZ II flash for Christmas this week. This will replace my existing 540 FGZ flash (that is probably 5-7 years old) and be used alongside my ...
  • Replied in Merry Christmas!
    Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • Merry Christmas all! Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • K5 & Tamron 28-75. Slight crop only. Transferred to android tablet via Eye-Fi card and uploaded to here, from there. Looking forward to seeing the FLUcard in action. Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • Very nice Mike! Number 7 for me. What AF settings were you using? Red Shoulders and Red Tails are hard for me to tell apart, especially juveniles.  Love the split tail, reminds me of a Martin! Peac ...
  • Thank you for taking the time to post these LPA. I spend a good bot of time in 3200 to 6400 ISO range and have been watching the High ISO discussions. I'm just looking for equal 3200 - 6400 to my ...
  • I wonder if a proper lawnmower SR test will come out in the near future.... Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • I've had a 10-17 for years. There's a little play possible with the front tube. The front element is secure in the tube that moves as part of the zoom mechanism. Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • Thanks Dale. I have the old 540 and a Metz 58 (which I use more then the 540). The build of the Metz is better and there's some options I like - such as using the front secondary light on the Metz ...
  • Anyone see a review or have one of the new 540 or 360 flashes? Just wondering how the new flashes compare to the old versions, and other comparable flashes (like a Metz 58 or Canikon offerings). Pe ...
  • Replied in Red, red rose
    Thanks Dean. I hadn't been looking forward to the coming winter and flu season. But looks like I'll be finding a way to catch the Flu this winter. The new lights are also looking really good too... ...

    K5 and DFA 100WR (uploaded from camera to smartphone via Eye-Fi card and pushed to this post via smartphone). Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • One with the 100 and one with the 31. Can you tell which is which? :-) Peace - Roger Hayslip
  • Need a push? How about a shove? :-) If I had to get rid of all my lenses except one, my 28-75 would be the last lens I would give up. It's what I use for candids during events and my main lens for ...
