  • 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.
  • Replied in Winter sea
    I shot from the same spot on Capri when the water was calm.  Needless to say, your version looks better.
  • I like it.  Your inclusion of the pedestrian was key. I think you mean windchill of -20 deg C.  Brrrr!
  • I think you meant "poster's". That should be a colon, not a comma, after "English". "fifty-odd" is how you should have written it. I'll give you a let on starting the sentence with a conjunction, ...
  • Replied in Rockwell
    Sorry:  Ken made me do it.
  • I suppose you could stitch 16-85 shots, but I'd suggest using your Sigma 10-20 for things like the Colosseum interior, the Pantheon interior, the St. Peter's Basilica interior, the Trevi Fountain, ...
  • Created discussions Bad Vibes: 70-200/4 VR
    Last week, my 7-month-old 70-200/4 VR started whining when the VR was engaged, then the stabilization would die after a few seconds of operation.  I could briefly rejuvenate it by removing / ...
  • Replied in TC14E Works Well
    I've used only the TC14E converter with the 70-200 f/4 VR (on a D7100), and can't see any image degradation with the combo, even wide-open at 200mm.  Very impressive. On other lenses (eg. 300 f/4 ...
  • Replied in Great Lens
    I use mine on a D7100.  Great combo.  I used the f/2.8 VR1 previously. The only time I wish I had brought the faster lens with me was when I shot a friend's hockey game at an indoor arena in ...
