  • Ahh, you are right I didn't answer the question..... "Would you be okay with people that don't like pictures being taken to shoot your camera equipment?" In my cases yes I would, but preferably not ...
  • The camera equipment doesn't harm the subjects. Win to the bird this time ;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smv7cBzg-Ok How much damage can be done though in the wrong areas with endangered ...
  • I'm just hoping a few of them fly over some of the areas here in duck shooting season. Saves them scaring off the birds at the estuary I like to take photos at. In fact, I might apply for a shot ...
  • I clicked the first option, but don't really know what its all about to be honest ........... hang on ........... gotta go, there's a funny noise outside and I'm naked !! Sounds like it could be a ...
  • Nope, that's not what you said at all ;-) "and it is going to block 1/3rd of the light." So it blocks a third of the light to the sensor then. Danny.
  • Who was playing ?? I was watching Wales and the All Blacks, a bit earlier I think NZ time. Even the Aussies got done in the weekend, man they are not going too good this year at all. All the best ...
  • I would like to book room 63 if possible Martin for the next 10 years. According to Jan, that's where I should be. Amazing these building just become abandoned, there must be something it could be ...
  • Replied in Just different
    I've said this a few times and it never goes down well. It seems its only a one way street to a lot in here. For some m4/3 can be better than FF, but not in the reverse going back one format. I ...
  • Oh the things I could tell you about Lab in a former life at DPR and the Sony forum ;-) but I won't spoil it, its always good fun to watch :-) Danny.
  • Its not that bad, just takes a bit of getting used to with a 500mm hand held at F/4.5 on a BIF, DOF is near none :-) The 800mm is even worse with DOF at F/5.6, but that lives on the tripod. ...
  • Ahhhh, no WE didn't. ;-) I bought mirrorless to use manual focusing, but then, maybe I'm not a "WE" ;-) Sony doesn't force you to buy anything. You did the homework on what lenses are available for ...
  • Ha, just pulling ya leg. BTW, the Canon lenses don't lose AF with the right adaptor and OIS still works as well. Very slow AF though by the sounds of it. Not the ideal at all. I would sooner use ...
  • Or decent long tele lenses for m4/3 ;-) again I have to use Canon lenses on the Oly !! Danny.
  • :-) :-) Hmmm, yeah na maybe ;-) I think Sony has relied on people using the LEA adaptors to mount the A mount lenses and it gives fast PDAF, but it is a compromise for sure. Hopefully Sony get ...
  • Replied in Very interesting
    Great to see that. Heck of an array of Canon lenses for sure. You know what though, every single one of those Canon lenses will mount and work on the Sony, kind of interesting ;-) Nikon's as well ...
  • Replied in What !!
    Well that's the end of that then ;-) I sort of thought so anyway. Nothing wrong with an EVF or an OVF. Images couldn't care less what was used. Better alternative ?? According to who. So if that's ...
  • You can't have that at all tomorrow ;-) Give us some time will ya, some people can be so impatient. All the best and line up at the back. Danny.
  • Ahhhh ....... nope !! ;-) Told her Henry's wife was fine with it, but then this cup of hot coffee went flying by my head, phew that was close ;-) Apparently its my fault and I have to clean it up. ...
  • Yeah she's a good one all right. I can't tell you what my wife just said !!! ;-)
  • Replied in Problem there
    Your watch needs a new battery. Every time I look at it the time hasn't changed and the seconds are not working either !!. Danny.
