  • Well, I printed out a long-distance target today, with a 1" black line on 13" x 19" matte paper, and AFMA'd at 80 feet for 24mm, and up to 200 feet for the longer lenses.  My numbers (especially ...
  • Created discussions AFMA 5D3 and AF observations
    I recently purchased a 5D3 to replace my 1Ds.  On the 1Ds, my 24-70 had incorrect focus at 24mm and distant objects (landscape trees, astro).  So I was quite overjoyed at the increased sharpness ...

  • RustierOne, My 1Ds is OLD.  Back then, the electronics just weren't speedy.  Faster cards just won't help this old brick. I shot at 27mm, F4, ISO 800 (Canon 24-70 isn't great at 24mm, the corners ...
  • just Tony, I got a little bit of luck tonite.  The all-day clouds cleared up, and within 2 minutes of setting up, I started seeing meteorites.  I had pointed the cam at the Persieds, at 27mm FL, ...
  • Created discussions Perseid score...
    I've taken to sitting in my back yard with my ancient 1Ds, and seeing what I can capture at night.  In 2001, I caught some stunning aurora with an Oly E10.  I lucked into a few nice meteorites in ...
