  • Very nice indeed.
  • Created discussion thread Garden Center with the V1 and 18.5
    To fill the time earlier today while my wife shopped in a garden center I poked around with my V1 and 18.5/1.8. This is a fun set up to use, liberating compared to a DX body with a 35/1.8, and ...
  • Here are a couple of sites with lots of info on close up mechanics and equations. Lots of fun if you have geeky tendencies (I definitely do). https://ilovetheoutdoors.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/1/deriv ...
  • A nice group of photos. How about more information for those of us who know little or nothing about your rail system? (1) Is this still an active station? (2) are steam ...
  • Geeze, the last time I saw something like that I had to call the plumber! Just kidding - this is a fun image and I like it and am glad you posted it.
  • I revisited this nest today about 4 hours earlier in the day and took along the CX 70-300. As expected the lighting was completely different - this time being on the dove and not the background. I ...
  • A good lesson for everyone. There are lots of photographic basics that come in handy when we step away from full automaton like this. One of the few advantages of being so old is having started in ...
  • The DX 40/2.8 macro is on my Buy Next list for my N1 bodies. Your images look great.
  • Created discussion thread Fill Flash with a V2
    I found this nesting Mourning Dove in the same location I'd seen it years before, in a saguaro cactus just above eye level in the landscaping at a local drugstore. I was able to approach slowly and ...
  • Replied in Only a Swan!
    I've been both a birder and a photographer since the early 1970's. At first the photography dominated my time, especially when I maintained a darkroom for my B&W work (one camera) and shot color ...
  • I was in the range of f/4 perhaps down to f/8, but nothing smaller. Just trying to get enough DOF for these subjects. Yes - tripod for everything here. Those shutter speeds are seriously low, and ...
  • Created discussion thread Fun with an old lens
    My oldest Nikon lens is a 200mm f/4 manual focus Micro Nikkor I bought new around 1982. I rarely use it anymore on my DX cameras but have never wanted to part with it. I decided to do some macro ...
  • Very nice group, especially the dandelion!
  • Each year we wait to see how many quail families we'll get in our yard, how many chicks there will be in each, and when the first group will show. We had our first family a few days ago, and this ...
  • A nice group. I enjoy seeing these places that I have no actuations experience of, and I especially like the two color images here. I keep my 10-100 on a body at all times and take it everywhere. ...
  • Created discussion thread Some backyard photos
    I've been playing in the back yard recently, getting shots of some of the plants that dominate my wife's time. I thought I'd share some of them. V1 with 10-100 non PD or V2 with CX 70-300. Raw, ...
  • Thanks for that, Dave. I rarely look at that sort of stuff so hadn't realized the mode icon was always displayed. Now that I've been caught up by the issue I'll try to pay attention to that.
  • Paul - thanks! I was thinking something like that might have happened. I know the ease of changing that dial was my biggest complaint with my first N1 camera - a J1. I will try to do a better job ...
  • Very nice images. Is that a desert spiny lizard (like we have here in Phoenix)? And what type of flower is that?
  • Created discussion thread Strange image size behavior with V1
    I've been using my new-used V1 for a week now and have been enjoying it a lot. I've set it to raw only after trying raw+jpeg for a day or so and finding that too complicated for my established ...
