  • You posted a couple of replies and then retracted them, so I'm not sure what settings you used.  Here are a few suggestions. 1.  Use single point.  As others have stated, use single point so that ...
  • Replied in Think Tank
    I have many of their products, including at least three of their digital holsters. See which version fits your need. James
  • Replied in Kenko DGX?
    If you have the DGX, do you have the blue dot version? There were some compatibility issues with the earlier versions, including when used with the 100mm L macro. James
  • It'll be easier if we can see a sample.  In the meantime, here are some things to check. 1.  Since you said bounce flash, how high is the ceiling?  If the flash is putting out a full pulse with ...
  • Replied in Bit of feedback
    Hi Mark, The disclaimer about free advice/feedback applies as usual. :) Overall a nice set and some feedback on the last two. #2: From the head to the waist it's a profile view and a fairly relaxed ...
  • The card manufacturers will highlight the read speed, which is the same or (often) faster than the write speed. I can't remember seeing a card with a faster write speed than read speed. They're ...
  • Along with others, I appreciate the time and effort you took to post this. James
  • I use Optech shoulder straps but I normally have it slung across the shoulder and neck so that it won't slip off and fall.  If it bounces around too much while walking around, flip the camera ...
  • I have a set of fingerless gloves with a flap for the thumb and another for the fingers.  To keep the fingers from getting too cold while uncovered, I put on a set of winter golf gloves before ...
  • Replied in Nikon lens forum
    You'll probably get more responses there since there will be users that have compared various teleconverters across multiple lenses. James
  • Check out the Florida Birding Trail website to get info about locations. You should call each place under consideration to see what they usually have in Oct. Here are some places that I've ...
  • Google "underwater case 82mm" and you'll get some hits. I have a Ewa-Marine case that has an adjustable bar to keep the port and lens extension area from collapsing down from water pressure, but ...
  • One simple trick is to apply a large radius unsharp mask to the image to "scrub" haziness.  Try maybe a radius of 50 and strength of 50, and play around with it until you get something you like. ...
  • Since the lens popped off two different bodies, check the indent on the rear mount of the lens where the locking pin slides in to keep the lens mounted.  Check the locking pin on the camera lens ...
  • I don't know about the size and weight of the Quantum Turbo batteries, but would a belt system work for you?  For example, the Think Tank Skin 50 or similar belt pouches would fit on your belt (or ...
  • Hi Donald, Always good to see your images.  It's nice to see things from around the world.  Here was my train of thought as I looked at the three images. Image #1:  Nice photo and I don't remember ...
  • Replied in It can work
    I rarely shoot on a tripod with this lens, but I have taken panoramas with it on a Gitzo 2540, Kirk BH-3 and l-bracket. It wasn't with slow shutter speeds, but I don't see drift at 10x in ...
  • Replied in Two suggestions
    First suggestion:  Like several people mentioned already, check for any smudges or other issues on the rear element and front element.  The hazy areas in the photo don't look like flare to me and ...
  • For your indoor shots, I don't think f/4 with its additional one stop will be enough of an improvement over your current 55-250.  At f/2.8, you'll have the first shot at either ISO 3200 and 1/200, ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Do you have the T2i or the T2? Your current telephoto is the 55-200, not the 55-250? I'll guess that you're at f/5.6, so getting a f/2.8 lens will allow you to shoot at two ISO stops lower, so ISO ...
