  • Submitted a challenge entry Cole Harbour Farm
    I have to admit, when it comes to taking photos, my camera auto setting is smarter than I am.  The only light in the stall was from the open door to the fenced small pasture.  I did not want to use the flash.  These two could wander out, but preferred where they were in the shadows.

I couldn't decide whether or not to use the camera's flash. If no flash, than what combo of f stop, shutter speed, and ISO?  Actually the cattle were in the most dark part of the stall and I thought the flash was required.

Instead, I turned the wheel to the "Green" mode, just to see how it would turn out. Look what the Pentax K5 gave me!

  • I think the black camera would absorb heat through the ice and the ice would first melt next to the camera.  In Ventsy's photos of the frozen K3 operating before the fireplace, you can see this ...

    Sorry, Lab D, I'm not familiar with Olympus gear.  I came from Nikon FM 35 mm, to two Pentax Optio p&s, to a couple of Panasonic FZ's, to Pentax K5.
  • Replied in Duck tape
    Hi! Bmoon, That is an impressive gear list you have, so you're not writing about your own duck tape experience? Cheers and Merry Christmas
