  • Replied in De-fish
    I did some comparison shots a couple of weeks ago. De-fished its about as wide as the 7mm. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53909530
  • If you are around them enough and don't bother them they tend to ignore you. If I sit still they will sometimes pass within a couple of meters. They might be more wary around someone called ...
  • There share a beach with otters. Always a pleasure when we cross paths. Some of your neighbors won't like them: They aren't always that shy. http://www.ptleader.com/news/photo-otter-crossing/image_ ...
  • Replied in go really wide
    My current favorite city lens is the 9mm sort-of-fishy bodycap. Small, inexpensive, simple - preset focus, shoot from the hip. Optically - very wide, great DOF, sharp enough.  But mostly I like ...
  • I've only had it a week, so just some test shots Some correction applied: The Western Flyer - used by John Steinbeck in better days. Not corrected: a landscape in bad light.  Without straight edges ...
  • Those two photos aren't really a good comparison for AOV. The body cap was slightly corrected and cropped on the right side. Last week I did a handful of test shots on a tripod with different wide ...
  • Nice video David, I have a slightly different perspective (both meanings) on the use of the lens.  I like it because I don't like the distortion of wide rectilinear lenses.  I took it out with the ...
  • Replied in 9mm vs 9mm
    I did some test shots a couple of days ago.  The de-fished bodycap is about the same AOV as a 7mm rect.  This is compared to the 7-14 set at about 9mm 9mm rect 9mm bodycap defished using Hugin
  • I also use Hugin, and set 9mm and FL of 2.  I think the 140 deg is diagonal (the much wider 8mm fisheye is 180 diagonal), so 110 would be about right.  Try setting the AOV instead of the FL and ...
  • If anyone is interested I took a couple of examples of the Olympus bodycap fisheye vs the 8mm Panasonic vs a 7mm rectilinear wide angle. My conclusion first. I like the projection - a sort of ...
  • Replied in focus limit
    Focus Limit in SW: Hit a button to toggle between focus limit and no limit. Hold the button down and use the control wheel to set the range. 0 (focus lock for all lenses) to 100% (no limit). For ...
  • Just playing around with some SW I didn't know I had.  Does keep with the theme that things look different in B&W. What the weather looked like out of the camera:
  • I have used Nik software for years, just found the Analog Efex tools which is one I never used before. Playing around with photos from kayak trip in Alaska (back when you could rent ...
  • Thanks for the heads up.  It was fun trying to guess the best location.  I was hoping for something with a bit of background - the bluff or lighthouse, and hoping they would be flying closer to ...
  • I went up on a bluff above Point Wilson north of Port Townsend.  I was hoping they would fly around the point  on the water and I could get them at eye level, or with the lighthouse in the ...
  • There was a correction on the article. http://lynnwoodtoday.com/distracted-driver/ If you call the Historic Flight Foundation they can give you a time for specific sites. (10:34 in Port Townsend).
  • Thanks for the  info.  Do you have any more? Good opportunity to check the new M1 firmware update. There are a couple of places I could go, but it depends on the route they take and what elevation ...
  • Replied in Eagles
    These were taken from a kayak in Dabob Bay, off of Hood Canal, WA using a OMD-M1 and 50-200 Mk1. Nice combo for wildlife from a kayak; small, water resistant, good reach, MySets keeps messing with ...
  • Replied in M1 firmware
    I updated my M1 to 1.4, and recommend updating. The 50mm was a great improvement, no longer running through all the gears. I think it is better on the M1 then any four thirds body. For telephotos ...
  • Replied in Tern fishing
    A series of the different body positions of a tern hunting for fish. I thought they worked better in B&W.
