  • Great pictures... am very impressed that you stood your ground... with your lens at only 87mm, that young bull was very close! Are they naturally friendly enough to eat a carrot if you had one to ...
  • Don't mind at all, appreciate all the help I can get! Started taking the actual pictures this morning, 5 or 6 to each side of each city block. We are going for an architectural record, rather than ...
  • I have a GR II and an iPhone 8. Yes, the iPhone's pictures are great... in daylight, anyway. But it is awful ergonomically. Terrible, compared to the Ricoh... which also fits in your shirt pocket. ...
  • Had mountain lions along a stream near Del Mar in California, before I moved to Tombstone. Water = bunnies, foxes, deer... and joggers, all irresistible. Particularly any jogger with a pony tail. ...
  • By all accounts, it's a great camera. True that, but that said, he missed that the K-3 III controls might be too confusing for some users (people like me). The lure of an advanced feature set with ...
  • Created discussion thread The easiest photo job in the world
    Dodging raindrops this evening to take a few test shots for the easiest photo job in the world. Which will be taking pictures of all the buildings on all the streets in the historic district of ...
  • Wonderful! And that Resolve spray... perfect for slowing down BIFS! Glad you got that lens, Tom.
  • What lovely color... cloudy sky, rain... boy do those colors pop!
  • Great pictures! It's wonderful to be able to see what a baby duck actually looks like, with these nice sharp closeups. Thanks!
  • My son got me a pair of blue skateboarder sneakers for Father's Day, so that I can sneak up on the local jaguars and javelinas without being noticed. We'll see how that works out!
  • The poll isn't working right on my iPad, so please cast my vote for the 55-500 AW, thanks!
  • Question — whatever happened to catadioptric lenses... which made for very light telephotos... and a lot less expensive than regular lenses, too. Could this be a way for Pentax to get a better ...
  • So it works, sort of? Would be interesting to see side-by-side pictures of the same scene taken with that same lens and lens setting on your regular APS-C camera and on the Q...
  • I'm on the bandwagon! For the new 55-550mm WR HE... with compressed helium to lessen the 1200g weight to an easily manageable 245g! And its breakthrough in-lens MaxiBird AI algorithm... instant ...
  • I sure have a way to go to understand lens optics! But thanks to you guys, am learning. If I'm understanding you right, DOF gets less the closer the camera is to the subject? Will experiment with ...
  • Am happily singing O Canada, as you have expanded our BIF Birds In Flight to BIF2, Bugs In Flight! I'll bet microdrone designers are really inspired by bugs like your dragonfly... and pictures ...
  • These are fantastic photos. They are beautiful. Two comments. First, the lighting is elegant... almost bluish highlights, what did you use? Second, am shocked by how little DOF there is at 100mm ...
  • Looks like the Autofocus is working just fine! Very impressive
  • Lovely pictures. And these are my kind of birds, that just walk around photogenically instead of perversely flying around to try and fool our AF efforts. Good birds! Feed them, and they will come.
  • Drone? No! Traditional manned aircraft, like this TOP SECRET gun camera image from a USAF A-10 trying to shoot down one of the Thunderbird pterodactyls that live in abandoned Tombstone Hills ...
