  • Some here at DPR will spend far more on a wide angle lens than some do on a tele lens for bird and BIF shots. I would say I see more landscape, flower, portrait, street, etc,  photos in the forums ...
  • Replied in If that was true
    If that was true, I would have no choice but to use a DSLR. You must have used some fairly useless mirrorless cameras. If the EVF was that bad, how many mirrorless camera users would there be ;-) B ...
  • Replied in Interesting ;-)
    You know something, there's not too many that write that particular line like that ;-) :-) All the best. Danny.
  • Replied in Once again
    I never mentioned manual focus to start with, you did. Why the heck are you going on about that for. Obviously you can't point to it unless its a little over your head ;-) You need to remember its ...
  • Well taken again, just been through the night time shots. Love the details and the action going on with these. Great use of gear and darn good work in the shots. All the best. Danny.
  • Not just great shots, but also clever work. Very well done and thought out. Nice details and what a neat display to get. All the best and great to see thanks. Danny.
  • Wonderful flight shots Vas, Just love seeing Egrets and even better with BIF's. Excellent work. BTW, I saw Egrets sitting on Buffalo backs up in Darwin at Fogg Dam. I only had the small gear with ...
  • Very nicely done and great shots on these fast movers, never easy for sure. Nice details and love the wing spreads. If you get the chance, try a different angle on them to get a more natural ...
  • Replied in Rule of Thirds
    What a bonus and well taken Trev. You couldn't ask for a better landing shot. Excellent timing. All the best Trevor, a fine shot. Danny.
  • You Aussies and these Wrens of your's, why don't you just stab me in the heart !! :-) ;-) They are GORGEOUS and even though the female is not as coloured, she is a real beauty as well. Post some ...
  • Never tried AF, no doubt you would be correct with PDAF I'm guessing. Never held a D750 or a Fuji. I use Canon tele L lenses on the mirroless cameras. Great selection. From bellows to ring flash ...
  • Who the heck even mentioned manual focus ?. Only you did, not sure where you got that from in my post. Can you point it out for me. BTW, "Some guys" ...... What about females ?. Danny.
  • Replied in What Thom means
    So what Thom means, is that he doesn't know how to go about it and that in turn probably makes him not capable. A few of us mirrorless users do take fast action, sports, BIF's, etc. Its not in ...
  • Replied in Ha ;-)
    Have you looked at Paul's link and what he takes ;-) Trust me, looking at your gallery here at DPR, you don't need a mirror and you certainly don't have the lenses to take what Paul takes. Only ...
  • Fuji would be the last one I would go to. Plenty of APS-C options out there with far better specs than anything Fuji has that would suit me. It depends what you want I guess ;-) All the best. Danny.
  • Replied in Nice shots but
    Nice shots, but no BIF's !! ;-) So if you wanted a BIF shot at more than 50 meters, what would you use ?? A very heavy crop !! :-) Danny.
  • Why would anyone use a 400mm compared to a 50mm macro lens. Think about it ;-) Danny.
  • Gees, that's a strange one all right. I thought exactly the same thing with the RAW and jpeg's. I'll have to try it myself and see what happens. This is the first time I've seen this from the same ...
  • Yep you are right in the difference in timing. Besides the push bike shot I checked this one also with the mans foot !! Doesn't make sense and I see what you mean. Its almost like you were shooting ...
