  • Replied in OIS switch
    Very sensible. On my list. Part of the problem is once-in-a-lifetime chances don't come around much, so realizing their dangers is not easy. I've never had a problem with the switch before, and all ...
  • Replied in OIS switch
    What a terrible design! And, as I said, it mangled a once-in-a-lifetime shoot (gorillas in Uganda). I got some marginal shots (1/60 sec., ISO 3200) in the dark jungle, but it's SOOOO ...
  • Replied in OIS switch
    I have seen this but don't understand it at all. Why would turning off OIS with the lens switch disable IBIS? I had "preference to lens IS" turned on, and thought maybe that was the problem. This ...
  • I grew up not far from there, in Edgewater (Lakewood). I don't remember any birds like that when I was there. Maybe things have changed in 50 years :-D I got the 100-400 to be used for safaris back ...
  • Replied in 2 cents
    Yes. I love that. I'm looking for the interpretations that surprise me or may take me in a new direction. (or, of course, add a technique or skill to practice). Yup! Super cool, too. The day of the ...
  • Replied in 2 cents
    Brian: I always am happy to see your surfing shots. Please keep posting. Just for the conversation, since I'm interested in surf shooting. Hmm. I have two thoughts. First is that when you're ...
  • You're entirely welcome. I am only interested in being helpful, not critical, so I'm very happy you took my comments in that way.
  • Thanks for your post. I haven't been able to try live composite yet for these, but I'm wondering about your exposure specifications. Forgive the technicalities, here, but for those who want to ...
  • Replied in autochrome
    Gee this is nice! Did you manage the "models"? Any other technical details you'd like to share?
  • The first is the winner for me. The tone is a winner (slightly high key, as someone said), and I'm not sure I would have thought of that.
  • Might have been worth a try, but timing (sun shape) vs. positioning might have been an issue. Two other things: I liked the surfers in the glow on the water, and, probably bad, I have a habit of ...
  • Thanks for the belly laugh! 😂
  • Unreal! It didn't initially occur to me it was such a long exposure. I like it best in that frame of mind.
  • Replied in Self Pawtrait
    Nice feel. I love it when you can a huge difference in scale just right. (But, you also need to view at the right size. Full-screen seemed perfect to me.)
  • Yes, sunsets can be boring. Then you get a special one. SOOC (I didn't fee I needed to do a thing), Hermosa Beach, CA--just south of LA. E-M1 II, 40-150 R Features I liked: (1) Sun getting compressed ...
  • Excellent! Thanks JaKing and MickeyVee.
  • I am renting an E-M1 II to pair with the one I have for an upcoming extended photo trip. I'd like to transfer the settings from my current E-M1 II to the rented one, just for simplicity. I IMAGINE ...
  • I think we are pretty aligned in our thinking, at the top level. I am not that focused on portraits so didn't study your message, but it seemed obvious what it was about and is a kind of ...
  • Maybe arguing about taste is not optimally useful, but talking about it is, to me, very useful. If your taste is impervious to considerations of others and examples that might not be in your ...
  • Ah. I will have to check out the speed of displaying images on tablet. Maybe that's the bug, but there might be ways of arranging reduced images to display without transferring full files. Well, ...
