  • I acquired an a77, which I consider to be a major upgrade over my previous a57 in every way except perhaps in high ISO performance.  "Like-new" a77 bodies can now be had for about $500, or for ...
  • Jimmy, enlarging your photo to original size helps better to explain the origin of the lake's name.  It appears to be on its way to becoming a swamp.  Is it indeed as shallow as would be indicated ...
  • Fascinating to read the history of this small Danish island in the Baltic Sea.  During late Roman times it was home to a Germanic people known as the Burgundians, who after many wanderings and ...
  • Replied in Turtle Boat
    The Turtle features of the boat are endearing, esp. its tail!  But they're a bit hard to see at that distance; fortunately, the A16 image is quite sharp upon enlargement/zooming.  I enjoyed the ...
  • 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 ...
