  • Thanks. Unfortunately, when birding in the field, there is no time for manual focus, tripods or framing. You generally only have time to 'point-and-shoot', relying in the camera to get it right. Th ...
  • I still sometimes struggle with the K3, but when it hits the mark, the results can be spectacular. This Cuban Tody was captured during a recent vacation in Cuba with the K3-DA*300+1.4 TC. Tony Cuba ...
  • Replied in Doug...
    Looks like a female Broad-tailed Hummingbird to me. Note that Giant Hummingbird is ONLY found between 2,000 and 4,300 meters (6,500-14,100 feet) above sea level in the Andes of South America, from ...
  • Is anyone else having issues with the Samsung Magician 4.5 upgrade? After installing it, my PC would not boot. I was getting a very brief BSOD and then it would try again to boot. Safe mode was no ...
  • Replied in Answer found
    I think I have answered my own question. I used Photoshop to overlay these images onto free stock shots of old wooden panels, and later extracted just the images from the psd composite. It appears ...
  • Created questions Corrupt EXIF data?
    I have just been editing several shots taken in 2014 that I used to produce a calendar and I noticed that most of them have the wrong EXIF data. I checked my RAW files and they are OK, but now the ...
  • Replied in Solved, sort of
    Thanks Sky, I think I have solved the issue. As you suggested, I tried disconnecting USB cables and found that the warm boot issue only occurs if I have an external HD (which I mounted in a USB 3.0 ...
  • Can no-one offer any suggestions re log files? Thanks Tony
  • Created questions No warm boot?
    My PC will cold boot, but hangs on the initial Win7 screen during a warm boot. Could anyone tell me where to look to find the cause? Is there a log file for this type of error. I assume a program ...
  • Just checked the bill colour and I am fairly sure its a Giant Coot. Tony
  • You unknown bird is Coot, but there are five species in Chile. I suspect its either a Horned Coot ( Fulica cornuta ) or a Giant Coot (Fulica gigantean) Tony
  • Wrong mother but same intentions. An American Robin looking for her young in the garden.
  • Nice shot of a White-lined sphinx (Hyles lineata), also know as a Hummingbird moth. Tony
  • No, its a House Finch. Note the streaked flanks. Purple FInch is not normally found in NM, but is replaced by Cassin's Finch, which is less red. Tony
  • Nice series. A Myiarchus Flycatcher (Great Crested if you are in the east?) Tony
  • I notice that the K-3 is not listed under the PEF files? Tony
  • This was shot with full flash (Metz AF-48). Not a great shot but motion has been stopped. Tony
  • Are you sure that at only 1/16 flash power, that there is not enough available light to be giving you a good exposure? If this is so, then you are effectively exposing at 1/180. I would try to use ...
  • Jean Philippe, you have piqued my interest. Could you elaborate on the three different settings you use for birding, please? Perhaps AFS to AFC? Different exposure mode? Thanks Tony
  • Could they not just e-mail the draft copy to Pentax-US or Pentax-Canada? Tony
