Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • In 1997, with my Chinon IS-1000 pocket camera I got better color saturation on my computer than from scanned 35mm prints on the same computer: But four up like above would not print larger than ...
  • With 300mm on APS-C - most of the time you will not have to crop at all, and you will get the full advantage of the bigger sensor. For example, 300mm is long enough for doing my Muriwai Beach Gannets.
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - Blackbird Singing
    As I finished watering, a bird singing sounded quite close to me, so I looked up. I dropped the water hose and went inside to get the camera. I made a point of extending the lens out of sight for ...
  • Created discussion thread Full Moon December 2017
    For months the days when a full moon was due had wall-to-wall cloud cover. But December 3rd was clear. So I grabbed my 1.7x B-300 tele-converter with my home-constructed push-on adaptor for a shot ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 Full Moon
    Everything worked - The SH-2 with B-300 push-on extension, and the tripod. The cat did not push the tripod, and neither did the wind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmUnTWN6NZs Henry
  • Replied in My View
    Something good may come out of it, if you let it mature. Henry
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 for Large Prints
    I do have 33x23 inch prints done from the SZ-30MR and the SH-1. These look pleasant enough, until I look at them with a magnifier. But the SH-2 does less of the broad sharpening artifacts seen in ...
  • Created discussion thread Windows 10 Home Network SSID?
    I wish to use 'Camera Control' by Andreas Rebs https://rebs.biz/cc/en/index.html to access my Olympus SH-2 travel zoom. So far I have managed to download pictures, using the SSID given by the SH-2 ...
  • Earlier in the year I was asked to set up a Panasonic ZS60 for a friend, and I appear to have succeeded. But the amount of bumf in the menu is absolutely amazing. Some of the stuff in there is ...
  • Are you saying, Olympus is now doing an SH-4? It was just pointed out to me that there is a wire-less application running on PCs that talks to my SH-2 https://rebs.biz/cc/en/index.html . The laptop ...
  • Downloaded it and installed it. Windows reported the camera: So I decided to shut down the laptop and start it again. With the camera Wi-Fi enabled and started, Camera Control saw my Olympus SH-2: ...
  • Thanks for the link. I will try that on my SH-2, which is a later model than the TG3, but has a lot in common. Henry
  • Why should I have a cell phone as a go-between, when I have a perfectly good wire-less router talking to all our laptops and TVs? Henry
  • In the Olympus Forum we had a dentist who wanted to transfer his photos by wireless to his computer as he was attending to his patients. No cables! Domestically, I cannot download from anywhere in ...
  • Has the sensor now dust on it? That can be cleaned. Do the lenses look yellow when you look through them? If so, any plastic elements may have degraded. From my point of view - the T7i and the SL2 ...
  • In 2020 all cameras will, at last, talk to your computer via wireless router, without needing a cell-phone for intermediate storage. Three years ago I looked for a PC app that would pretend to be a ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - Four Recent Pictures
    After two years and a half the SH-2 still does what I want it to do: Auckland Airport: This should be a B-737, but at this angle it looks more like an A-330. Blossoms on a Pohutakawa tree - early ...
  • If you choose to pay more attention to advertisers than to your readers, you get what you deserve. The same thing happened with our television. After I watched the news, I have done my duty of ...
  • Replied in Aesthetics
    I agree with the other posters. The new background distracts from the information presented in the overlay. Making the presentation more jumbled will not overcome the fact that the camera industry ...
  • The lighting appears to have been low - 1/30 second at 400 ISO, 1/500 second at 1600 ISO. Were you shooting with iAUTO (slight over-exposure), and Image Stabilisation (IS) turned off (unintended ...
