  • Thanks for the report. I understand completely. I use the camera in my iPhone when it is the only thing at hand. In the field it can give good results for close ups of things I stumble upon, but it ...
  • Thanks. European Starlings and House Sparrows are two non native species introduced to the U.S. in the 1700's, long before anyone thought about potential side effects. Starlings were introduced by ...
  • Replied in Downtown...
    Interesting business. LCBO, Hampton General Store, Beer Store, and empty bottle dealer!
  • Interesting. Something is wrong with the uploaded dove photo; at least comparing the Original Size version to the one on my iMac it has lost critical sharpness all over. That's not happened to me ...
  • Created discussion thread Recent backyard birds
    Now that temps in Phoenix are into the triple digits again I'm photographing birds in the backyard for the most part. Here are four from this past week, plus a couple older shots I just got around ...
  • Excellent work. Especially the final shot. One expects this type of photo from a sideline professional with a full frame camera and a serious 600/4 lens. Nice work from the V1 and 30-110 mini combo!
  • Very nice shots. The first photo is quite inviting. I love the flower and wonder what it is.
  • Replied in VR 70-300
    Enjoy the 70-300 and be sure to share some photos with us here. A couple things to watch out for: (1) it is very easy to touch the manual focus ring on the 70-300 by accident. I quickly learned that I ...
  • I have straps on all my cameras: DX and N1. ON the DX bodies I have nice Domke straps with quick connects so I can get most of the strap out of the way leaving short sections connected to the ...
  • For my N1 work flow I shoot only NEF format. I open the NEF file in DxO PhotoLab Elite Pro and use the Deep Prime feature to the care of noise and export the denied raw file in DNG format. I then ...
  • Replied in VR 70-300
    Sorry; you are correct.I have a Really Right Stuff plate attached to mine and forgot what it looked like. Here's my 70-300 with the RRS plate removed The RRS plate I am using is something from my ...
  • Replied in VR 70-300
    Excellent deal. Lens looks in great condiotn. Plus, it has the hard to find tripod mount as shown in the second photo. Like you say in another thread I fell in love with the N1 system after ...
  • I don't know this lens, but usually a zoom lock at the shortest distance is to keep the lens from "growing" while it is being carried by a camera strap over one's shoulder.
  • Replied in Table manners
    Very nice. I like these a lot.
  • Sorry to be blunt, but you are deluding yourself to think that a Nikon DX body plus lens is only "slightly bigger" than a Nikon 1 body and lens with equivalent optical reach. Especially when you ...
  • Could you take some comparison shots to demonstrate the color differences? Say, 85/3.5 vs. 30-110 @ 85mm, f/5.6 on both, tripod mounted, fixed ISO, A mode. Same fixed subject in same light of ...
  • I bought both the 40/2.8 and 85/3.5 DX micro lenses to use with my N1 cameras. I like the results with the 85 on a J5 a lot, although I don't think I've shot it wide open, nor have I thought of it ...
  • Excellent set. I want to be there!
  • Part three. I made a second visit today to the museum so my wife Carol could see the exhibit. It gave me a chance to add a few shots and try a polarizer to cut down the reflexions in the Plexiglass ...
  • Part two of my visit to the Chandler Museum in Chandler, AZ, for their Dust Bowl exhibit. These shots are all of a primitive makeshift trailer, presumably what displaced farmers might have pulled ...
