emax's recent activity

  • Replied in 16-85 VR
    That's the one that I'd choose. (Mind you, I'd also bring a 70-200/4 VR & Sigma 10-20/4-5.6.)
  • Replied in Eventually
    By 2017 it should be down to $99;  then I'll buy one. In the meantime, I'm happy with 2 64GB cards in my D7100.
  • Replied in Peggy's Cove
    I'd drive Lighthouse Route 333 to West Dover, Peggy's Cove , the Swiss Air Memorial, and through to Upper Tantallon. Peggy's Cove is a fantastic shooting destination, if you're there when no tour ...
  • Replied in 2 Examples
    Here are 2 shots showing the fuzziness. The first is at mid-tele (249mm equivalent) where the left side is badly blurred. This is typical of most ZS30's that I've shot at this zoom setting. The ...
  • Created discussions ZS30 Fuzzy Left Side Epidemic?
    Over the last several months, I've tested about 8 different ZS30's (new & used), and have found that almost all rendered a fuzzy image on about the left 20 percent of the frame, at mid to long ...
  • ...Cohen, Bernstein, just to name a few. Some of the greatest cams:  Diaz, David, James.
  • My 17-55 / 2.8 had peripheral sharpness problems with landscapes at shorter focal lengths when stopped-down to f/8.  My 16-85 VR is much sharper in that realm.  Other folks have experienced the ...
  • Replied in Ann Boulter...
    ...is an ignorant bunt.
  • Replied in My Open Eye
    (Sorry; stolen from "Airplane!")
  • Thanks, Bruce. I bought mine used with a 3-month warranty.  If it's fixed & redevelops the problem after 3 more months, I might be S.O.L.
  • Created discussions ZS30 Left Side Softness
    I recently bought a ZS30 to replace my "aging" ZS15. In tests, the ZS30 performs very well at shorter focal lengths, but is quite soft on the left 25% of the frame at mid-to-longer focal lengths, ...
  • I've tried multiple copies of the Sigma 10-20/4-5.6 (not the f/3.5 version), the Nikon 12-24, the Nikon 10-24, the Tamron 11-16, and 1 copy of the Tokina 12-24. All were pretty good, but after ...
  • I went from the D70 to the D7100 in 4 small steps: D70 --> D200 --> D300 --> D7000 --> D7100. Each step produced a significant jump in IQ. The D70 can still produce some very pleasing images, but ...
  • I've been to Barcelona numerous times.  It has lots of crime, mostly non-violent. As others have said, be aware of your surroundings & keep your valuables hidden or secured.  Be especially vigilant ...
  • Thanks for the feedback. For the past several years, I've been using a Panasonic ZS15 & ZS3 which behave themselves when I shoot into the sun. I bought the svelte Canon for times when the Pannies ...
  • Thanks Steve, Here's a test shot that shows the offending phenomenon.  It's uncropped / untouched. I'll be doing some more test-shooting today.
  • Created discussions Blooming Elph 330 HS
    Today I tested my new Elph 330 HS.  The performance & sharpness seem fine, but it showed horrendous blooming when shooting into the sun at maximum (optical) telephoto. In the affected shots, the ...
  • Replied in Easy...
    16-85 VR for versatility.
  • ...maybe I can hatch me a new table-top 'pod.
