  • Replied in Home ??
    Great stuff and enjoying those huge smiles :-) :-) So, where is home Geoff ?? Well where does the heart lie, put it that way. I have a feeling its exactly where you are now. All the best over there ...
  • Impressive shots !! Excellent work from behind the lens and unique views. Love the perspectives and angles in these and that horse shot just breaks it up nicely. Fantastic to see thanks. Danny.

  • That's one of the advantages Vas, the techniques stay with you and don't really change much at all. These are showing excellent feathering details at the large views Vas, so obviously a great ...
  • Darn fine work there Trev, they are just gorgeous !!. Great BIF's and fantastic subjects to get in flight. Love the wingspans and the details in these. Excellent to see and would love a chance at ...
  • Excellent shooting Martin. Nice to wake up and see these, made my day. Gorgeous BIF's showing great details, well taken and the wet frizzy ones make me smile ;-) Stunning bird they are, we're ...
  • A dot sight doesn't work with manual focus. With MF your really need your eye at the EVF to see what's in focus and to move the focus ring to suit. Fernando is one heck of a shooter with a scope ...
  • Next door in NZ and yep, I find it really strange as well. You do the homework well before you even dream of getting a new camera. Once you hand over the money, that's it, its yours. Don't bring ...
  • Could you post up a few bird in flight shots and sports shots from the Polaroid ?? Thanks. My lenses are over 30 years old. Hey that's all you need. Danny.
  • I would certainly be giving this another go out in the field Ray. Darn good. Maybe it was the lighting conditions, handling, settings, etc, or whatever at the time. Seems fine. I've seen some ...
  • The 300 F/2.8L and the 500 F/4.5L are always hand held, but I am thinking of starting to use the monopod. Going on 60 this end this year, so it might be the right option. The 800 F/5.6L is the only ...
  • Ha :-) Sounds about right as well Ray ;-) Think the only AF m4/3 or 4/3 lens I would want would be the one you have, the 90-250. That's one heck of a lens from what I've seen. Maybe the 300 F/2.8 ...
  • Can't use magnified view for a BIF. On a static bird you can, but not of a flight shot. It just gets too large in the EVF and you can't find the bird or track it. All the best. Danny.

    Man you are getting close to these within reason Kurt. Fantastic details in the head shots !!. Love the eye's. All great to see and beautiful looking Hawks these, would love to have a crack at them. ...
  • Don't use focus peaking on the Oly, for me its terrible and hopeless for anything that moves. The EVF gets very laggy and its like looking at a B/W fuzzy cartoon ;-) My opinion anyway. The Sony ...
  • A few recent shots with the manual focus Canon FD 500 F/4.5L Planted on the little Oly. The E-M10 is pretty darn good with this lens, in fact all the Canon's. A couple of older shots and new ones ...
  • A great series to watch and all taken extremely well. Sure wish we had them here, they are a magnificent looking Hawk. We have Hawks here, got a couple of shots today actually, but these are more ...
  • Excellent shots as always Vas and also in tricky lighting conditions, fine work to get these. Nice details and interesting to see, not what we have here and that's always a bonus thanks. All the ...
  • Replied in Superb shots
    Wonderful to see Dennis and as Paul said, discussion over ;-) All the best Dennis, excellent work. Danny.
  • Replied in Agreed
    Bang on. I don't stop the Canon 300, 500 and 800mm lenses down. The lenses were bought a long time ago for exactly that reason. There is no reason to pay the money we do if we need to stop them ...
