  • Replied in Wich ball head
    Thanks Cliff, I think the UniqBall is a very nice ball head too.  Probably can't go wrong with either product.  I can say that talking with the Canadian distributer for FLM (on several occasions) ...

    Thanks Gelbvieh for your reply.  Sounds like a great ball head.  I was giving the Uniqball consideration as well, but have decided to give the FLM CB-48 FTR a go.  Probably can't go wrong with ...

    I was looking closer at the German made FLM CB-48FTR.  It looks to be very well made, very strong, very little to no movement when locking tight and no creep when using friction control at large ...

    Thanks again, Cliff.  Your macro set up sounds like it will be very nice.  Enjoy your retirement!  I've got just a few more years to go yet before I get there myself.  Looking forward to being ...
  • Replied in Wich ball head
    Thanks Cliff for replying to my question.  We don't have any stores in my whole state that carry any of the top line heads for me to be able to check out in person. Do you have any first hand ...
  • Which lens is that Mark?
  • Replied in Wich ball head
    Hi Cliff, The P0 sounds interesting.  So when you set the top pan table level, you say you can "swing the horizon".  When set up in this manner, can you also tilt in addition to pan? Many Thanks, N ...
  • Had an opportunity to use my Sigma Art 50 f1.4 and Df to photograph an outstanding pianist performing on our beautiful Steinway piano in Church. What wonderful sounds, especially with the help of ...
  • You did good by getting the Df.  It is a fabulous camera, with an awesome sensor!  My favorite lenses for this camera range from the modern Zeiss 135 F2 APO and Sigma Art 50 F1.4 to the vintage ...
  • I've got the Nikkor P 105 f2.5, the Nikkor Q 135 f2.8, and the Zeiss 135 APO f2.0 and use them all quite regularly.  These are all spectacular lenses and I love the manual focus aspect in using ...
  • Thank you Rick for sharing some tips that work well for you.  I will definitely give this a try the next time I am able to get out.  Do you think that I should also stop down the aperture to maybe ...
  • Hello buybuybuy, Do I have any regrets about using a non-AF, non-VR lens in a dimly-lit venue?  Absolutely not.  At least not yet.  I have literally gotten to use this lens only ONCE in this venue. ...
  • Absolutely lovely!  I can't wait to be able to see butterflies again.  We've got -30 to -40 below weather where I live....burrr. Warmest Regards, No Regrets
  • Hi Miranda, Thank you for posting to the thread!  The image really pops and is in excellent focus...very well done.  Do you shoot mostly hand held or do you utilize some type of support system, ...
  • This looks great!  Love the coloring of the bird and is plenty sharp. No Regrets
  • Hi Daniel, I'll have to give the "focus stacking" you mentioned a try.  Sounds fun and I would think a person would have a better chance of getting some keepers. Thanks! No Regrets
  • I did not buy this lens specifically to use for this kind of shoot.  I do all kinds of photography from portraits to still life, nature to landscape or architecture , and whatever else that may ...
  • Hi Daniel, I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my photos.  I love having constructive criticism as it helps me learn and grow with this fun hobby. The more thought I give to these ...
  • Hello Hikerdoc, I appreciate your reply.  Does the foot of the monopod make much of a difference....rubber vs steel spike? The 681B looks like a very worthwhile and inexpensive experiment to give a ...
  • Thanks again for your reply.  I do have an older Bogen/Manfrotto tripod with a Manfrotto 3028 Super 3D Pan/Tilt head, but it just seems so cumbersome to carry and use.  I just love walking with my ...
