About me:

To have great value, life and knowledge must last, therefore we should first seek eternal truth and life, available to us through the abounding love and grace of our Savior.
I find inspiration from the following authors and works, which have my highest recommendation. Please do not miss reading at least a few of these!
The Word: Holy Bible. H. A. Baker, Rolland and Heidi Baker: various. Pastor Surprise Sithole: Voice in the Night. Mel Tari: Like a Mighty Wind. Dr. James Maloney: various. Guillermo Maldonado: various. Anna Rountree: Heaven Awaits the Bride. Dale and Paula Black: various. Rev. Elwood Scott: 40 days in Heaven, the story of Seneca Sodi. Praying Medic: Divine Healing made Simple. Blake Healy: The Veil.

Marianne Oelund's recent activity

  • Replied in Pattern types
    Not in my experience, but even the best targets can be misused.  My preferred AF-adjust target is the subject that I will be photographing. I have said that periodic patterns can be an issue.  That ...
  • Atta girl, Stacey! You could also point out to Leonard, that use of the Dot Tune method does not necessarily entail use of the recommended Dot Tune target .
  • Replied in + or - 25
    Not recommended unless you encounter other difficulties. Yes. Yes. I've had success with a local camera shop adjusting my (non-MFA-capable) D2x, but it took two tries.  Patience is often needed, ...
  • Replied in Canon frame rate
    Hi, Bob! My experience with Canon is admittedly several generations old, but back in 2007 I was rather disappointed with the frame-rate behavior of the 1D II and III.  They would only achieve full ...
  • Replied in Low resolution
    No, if it is truly uncropped as described, it is only posted at 20% resolution.
  • I hope that this will be encouraging: After 12 years of using Nikon digital cameras, and over 5,000,000 frames taken with D2H, D3, D3s and D4 bodies, I have never once had to clean lens or ...
  • That is certainly suspicious.  You might try removing the primary card, leaving only the secondary card installed.  Card seating/contact issues can also arise.  Something may have been disturbed, ...
  • If the camera cannot read the lens, it will default to the current non-CPU lens setting.  One can take advantage of this by setting the non-CPU lens to something unique such as 600mm f/1.4, which ...
  • Except that high base-ISO DR also correlates with lower read noise floor at high ISO settings - where the advantage can be readily visible in camera JPEG images.
  • Replied in Porsche examples
    Boxsters/Caymans have numbers, too.  First generation 986, second generation 987, latest generation 981 - the latter being another example of having to go back to lower numbers. The Porsche "911" ...
  • You are correct that it is for TTL flash, but in fact it measures the exposure off of the film itself, during the actual exposure while the shutter is fully open.  There is no TTL pre-flash for ...
  • It is correct that the D3 and later AF systems, which use large contiguous blocks of AF points, do make use of rather different arrangements of the field and separator lenses, and AF-sensor ...
  • Which 2x TC is that?  Are you sure your AF is optimally calibrated, and your technique (and field atmospheric condition) is adequate for 600mm? Admittedly I don't have experience with the 300/2.8, ...
  • Replied in Joe is correct
    Yes, if you are considering the amount of diffraction at the subject in absolute linear measure (which is indeed determined by entrance pupil diameter), then the diffraction effect at the image ...
  • Are you referring to image softness (implied by your mention of on-tripod VR use)?  If so, are you saying that the result was inferior to other lenses at f/22?  An example would help. For the ...
  • Replied in Service life
    USA service centers will continue to provide service for Nikon USA gear, until spare parts are no longer available.  That is generally at least 10 years after the lens or camera model ceases ...
  • Yes, this can occur with almost any lens, in your climate, so returning the lens will not help at all. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we rarely encounter such temperature/humidity extremes, but I ...
  • Critical comparison of optical performance requires very careful control of variables.  In this case, you have not controlled magnification, leaving the 70-200 at a disadvantage due to its lower ...
  • Replied in Different sense
    No, the OP was describing movement that he could feel and hear when holding the lens in his hand, not movement that he could see by looking into the lens.
  • Replied in VR parking
    What you are describing matches the feel of an unparked VR unit.  This can happen if you inadvertently activate VR while removing the lens from the camera. To confirm, you could do this ...
