  • Went camping with my son at Blue Lakes in California. Was a great time and the weather was just perfect. I had a timelapse of the milky way but cut it too short because i didn't think it would ...
  • Two years ago i tried to get this shot and when i got there was just too much smoke from all the wildfires. I wanted to try it again and as luck would have it last night was perfect conditions.
  • Replied in Santa Cruz
    Took a camping trip to Santa Cruz and our campsite was right on the ocean. As luck would have it our spot was also in between a red tailed hawks nest and a bald eagle trying to nest but getting ...
  • Thanks! I am using the sky watcher star adventurer. I really like it and with a separate cable you can control it and the R5 with an app on your phone. Comes in handy.
  • Went out initially to photograph the planetary alignment. However after a while it was clear that the area I was in I was not going to get a great shot. So instead I focused on the Milky Way. I ...
  • Replied in Washoe Lake
    went out to my local stomping ground in Washoe Valley and found some fun wildlife and also a storm rolling through.
  • Went to Death Valley back in March and just now finished processing the photos so I apologize for posting them in May it just took a while to finish :) Hope you enjoy the set.

    thats only for focusing and the control ring, the zoom ring is a physical hardware function so cant be changed.
  • Was a long time Nikon user and had the z7 when it first came out. Hated the AF and decided to sell all my Nikon and make the switch to canon first with the R and now R5. Couldn’t be happier. ...
  • here are the ones i got and work great https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08LDM2H83/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  • and its possible they have gotten better. The lenses I have used have not been great. I think the last lens I used was the sigma 10-20mm and the Sigma Sport 150-600. Both were subpar in my mind to ...
  • Sorry i disagree. But maybe it was just my experience. I have tried sigma lenses in the past and between build quality, AF speed and accuracy, and overall look, not just sharpness, Canon is by far ...

    this should not have been posted to the main forum and should have been posted to the images for february, if you can please remove
  • Replied in Just a finch
    Cute little finch in my tree. Haven't had a ton a time to photograph because I threw out my back a week ago. But at least I can still photograph these little guys in my backyard.
  • sorry i don't agree. Why waste money when you don't have to? I have had these Neewer batteries for almost a year now and they still charge just fine, and run my R5 just fine. I also have OEM canon ...

  • I would avoid using the focus stacking option in the camera and just do it manually when it comes to landscapes. I think focus stacking software is primarily geared towards macro. All i do is 3 ...
  • haha hey to each their own :) Oh definitely not saying they cant be useful. But i still stand by my view that a star tracker would garner better results than going from 2.8 to a wider aperture lens. ...
  • In fact heres a good example. This shot was taken with the EOS R and RF 15-35 at F2.8. Its decent but there is noticeable noise and star trailing. Now here is that same lens, albeit a different ...
  • i really don't think anyone needs wider than 2.8 for astro. I've never seen a lens wider than 2.8 that doesn't have horrendous coma in the corners. You have to usually stop down to 2.8 anyway. To ...
