    Hello Tan68 the photokina is at the Koelnmesse, on the other side of the Rhine, but it's not fare away from it. here a link : (in English) http://www.photokina.com/en/photokina/anreise_aufenthalt/i ...
  • Replied in Thanks Leo
    Hello Leo Thank you ! It's so nice to here from you. This flower thread, you and ozdean did created, is such a nice place for to grow in flower photography. As you may know, I for example made my ...
  • Replied in Thanks Tan68
    Hello Tan68 Thanks! As you can see I'm just online :-D To the flash: I made the shadows with the flash. It was a overcast day and therefore the flowers didn't have had good shadow structures. ...
  • Hello thanks ! It was not so easy to hold the camera steady with one hand and the flash in the other hand. I got a lot not so well 'nailed the focus point' pictures. I think next time I use a ...

    Hello M R Padmaraju and all Wonderful pictures ! I had the time to visit our botanical garden today. It was a overcast day, and therefore all pictures are made with HSS-P-TTL for fill, or to ...

    Hello M R Padmaraju and all wonderful flowers! I had have not much time for photography during the last months, so that I had nothing to post for the previous threads. a rose: best regards kikivrany
  • Hello again John_A_G Thanks for the links. With my Pentax K5 I use this: Now the use of a tele-lens works also, because you can not always take the pictures on the skateboard-area, but of cause I ...
  • Hello John_A_G I think you and I think in the same way...fast lens are expensive. For taking ballet pictures I bought a FA*80-200mm...I'm a hobby photographer, but I was willing to pay that much ...
  • Hello again sgtsween Thanks for sharing your own handling with the DA 55-300. Now there are other very fast AF lens, like the FA* 28-70 f2.8. I mentioned the 100mm macro, because I thought there ...
  • Hello sgtsween It's all relative, with what I mean if the AF speed of a lens is fast enough for a sport picture depends so much with the distance changes you have . For example the FA 100 macro ...
  • Replied in New flash
    Hello johnami You already got good answers, so my point is buy not only a flash, buy also some accessories for it. With a digital camera it's a joy to use a flash. Learning by doing is much easier ...
  • Hello OrdinarilyInordinate The D5200 has a good AF module, but on the other hand Nikon economise the AF motor, parts of the flash functions (like HSS) and a second wheel. I really would miss the ...
  • Hello Just for fun: it all depends how big the handshake is, and how you can reduce it for to use longer focal lens with low shutter speeds and SR: A museum picture (no tripod allowed). I put the ...
  • Do you think here in FF focal length or do you mean the APS-C focal length. I ask because for me the SR works good with a 18mm lens (which would be a 27mm focal length in FF) and it still works ...
  • Hello again Maybe it's already mentioned in this thread, but I think your camera is ok, because you wrote that you have no problems with the other lens you use. So for example when you have the SR ...
  • Hello This rule works so long you don't make a big crop out of your picture, or look at pixel level. I mean when we are cropping, it's the same as if we would use an other focal length, therefore ...
  • Hello Holger Bargen I don't know the reaction time of the Pentax SR. Therefore this is only theoretical With a shutter speed of 1/1000 sec the picture is taken in 1 ms. Now for example when the SR ...
