  • A...that really is an exceptionally beautiful shot. The desert sky at dawn with the mountains in the distance topped by such incredible clouds. I can see that turning on the AF assist light will ...
  • A...some more info on low-light performance of a77 is available HERE in the section "Low Light."  I note that the review found the a77 to be "Acceptable" with regard to its low-light performance, ...
  • A...please purge your memory banks of all past associations, b/c here MFD signifies "Minimum Focusing Distance," which for the GRDIV is 30cm in "normal" mode and just 1cm (less than 1/2") in Macro ...
  • A...that Macro feature gives GRDIV exceptional versatility and flexibility, as your close-ups of flowers and insects from Black Canyon clearly demonstrate.  I believe that MFD under macro mode is ...
  • Tina, #2 definitely captured a more natural facial expression.  And I think that #2 could be strengthened by making it just a head & shoulder pose (as in #1) by cropping up from the bottom, thus ...
  • Replied in Photo.
    Sean, I am surprised that Takashimajo castle has sloped sides.  One would have thought that standard vertical sides would have proven harder for attackers to have scaled.  These little ...
  • Replied in Photo.
    Sean...this LINK to more info about this and other Medieval Castles of Japan shows Matsumoto in very different lighting and thus it does not look so foreboding as in your shot of it.  I believe ...
  • Seth, currently KEH lists a GXR-M in "Like New" condition for $382, while B&H lists one in 8+ condition for $299.  I believe that both will ship to Australia, and I think that KEH will charge $59 ...
  • Tina, yes, I see that you garnered no responses originally.  To me the "special" photo of the set is the portrait of the gentleman in #5.  You snapped him at just the right moment and at just the ...
  • Tina, I guess that I've mostly heard from mentors commenting on my photos not to leave partial objects, people or plants in prominent foreground positions, rather that I should dispose of these ...
  • Tina, my favorite is #3.  Runnicle
  • Tina, did you take just the GRDIV?  I think that this is such a nice choice for shooting in semi-dark interiors of a museum because of wide aperture if needed.  Plus, so tiny and discrete, so ...
  • It looks as though you will soon have satisfaction. But why does someone with a valid complaint like yours have to become a "squeaky wheel" by escalating to a public forum before Adorama unleashes ...
  • There's also Jerry Davis, who is another customer support rep from Adorama who watches these boards for complaints regarding them.  He usually hangs out on the "Open Talk" board where such ...
  • A...what is that weird "glowing" standing plant just to the right of center in Photo #4?  Runnicle
  • A...his web site has general interest photos posted to open access, and then family-oriented photos that are password protected.  Here is the link to the open-access portion.  If, afterwards, you ...
  • A...of course, I did know that you had an a57, which is what started me out on the a77 tangent in the first place. As far as establishing a photographically-oriented web site, that's a great idea.  ...
  • A...I sensed earlier that there might be a Sony alpha in your future.  From what you're saying here, it appears as if my premonition was correct.  Is it an a77 or a77ii?  Of course, I await ...
  • A...well, you actually got up really, really early and then hiked up a mountain in the dark carrying camera and tripod, all just to capture the golden hour to share with us! In truth, this is ...
  • Tom, here's a link that might help clarify.  Runnicle
