  • Created discussion thread Praying mantids
    Found these two mantids in one of our front gardens. I couldn't locate my EM-140DG macro flash, so these are with the EF-610DG Super (wide-angle diffuser) with the first gen 70mm f/2.8 macro, all ...
  • I also have the ciecio7 adapter (made in Poland) and it's been fine.
  • Unfortunately, most COVID-19 patients that require ventilation die. It has only marginal efficacy. Because we have a substantial number of selfish people (part of the American culture), it doesn't ...
  • I've never been a high frequency poster, but usually by this time of year I've been out on photo shoots several times. But not once this year, principally because of coronavirus work, so nothing ...
  • There are some women who have a fourth, yellow cone, so they are RBGY.
  • What is this flare you're talking about? I've never seen it. ;-) , Bryce Canyon National Park, Sony A7/Canon 17mm f/4
  • I'm looking for a suitable macro ring flash for the X-T3 and it seems this Metz may have compatibility with the camera. Has anyone used this flash with Fuji cameras? Does it offer wireless TTL? I ...
  • Trying to locate this lens. I don't see SA mounts listed at B&H or Adorama. Canon mounts on backorder and Nikon mounts limited quantities. So, has this lens been discontinued?
  • I still have some in my refrigerator. Probably need to shoot it soon.
  • I'm a Canon New FD guy. My last "old" FD lens finally broke down last year so all I have left for Canon are my nFD lenses - along with an F-1n, F-1N, A-1 and AL-1. Agree about the flare of FD ...
  • I installed an RX580/8GB graphics card in my Mac. However, in SPP (most recent version) only the integrated Intel UHD630 gpu is available in SPP's preferences. Any idea why this is so?
  • I don't have the H so this may not be helpful for you. I put my 6 year old 70mm f/2.8 macro on my sdQ and my EF 610 flash. The flash did not trigger at first, but then I pressed the Test button on ...
  • I’ve hiked/ backpacked in several times over the years but it has some of the most challenging trails in the state. I hope to get at least one more backpacking trip in before my legs give out. :)
  • Created discussion thread Weminuche Wilderness, Colorado USA
    A couple from the SD15 a few years ago. This is my favorite part of Colorado.
  • Yes, when I bought it (right after it came out) I wasn't aware of the slip on ND filters. Might have kept it if I had. It is a really nice lens.
  • I bought the 8-16mm several years ago but returned it. It was a much better lens; however, I decided that the ability to use neutral density filters was essential, thus its return.
  • Thanks for proving my point. I just downloaded the very first image from that link and it's just a bad along the edges and the corners are even worse. And that was at 20mm where it should perform ...
  • There's been nothing but talk in this thread so I posted an image so that Dan can see for himself how mediocre the 10-20mm lens is on the edges. If you have an image that shows the f/3.5 version ...
  • Here's a shot at 10mm and f/8 with the f/4-5.6 version. You'll see the edges are not that good. You're unlikely to see meaningful improvement, and perhaps worse, performance from the f/3.5 version. ...
  • I have the f/4-5.6 version and it's supposed to be a bit better optically than the f/3.5. I can tell you it's a decent lens but at 10 mm you will see quite a bit of distortion on the edges.
