Hclarkx's recent activity

  • We come here often and rarely get the same photos.   ((Tell me if they are a bit dim, I'm using LR on a laptop and left my calibrator at home and don't recall the brightness setting I used when ...
  • Nicely done.  Takes me back.  My daughter played fast pitch from early on through college and PAC10.   Now she's a graphic designer and pro photographer with a family.  Memories.
  • I've been mostly using the 11-22, 28, and nifty fifty knowing they should be sharper than the 18-150.  After seeing this thread, I'm giving the very convenient 18-150 another look, using it ...
  • The inverter in question is an inexpensive one rated at only 150W and intended for mobile use.  It plugs into a 12V "cigarette lighter" outlet.  In my case it's in an RV.   By inexpensive, I mean ...
  • I have a small (150W) "modified sine wave" inverter that I've used without issue to power a range of devices in my RV. Today I plugged my Canon M5 battery charger into it and put a battery in the ...
  • I think given fresh snow and highly diffused light from the fog above (no shadows), it would be difficult to get any texture out of the snow.  But, the scene is a bit surreal and I think the very ...
  • Lots of good ideas already. I would only add that you have two issues to deal with, exposure and white balance. You really don't want to change exposure to make white white. Use white balance for ...
  • Excellent find! And great framing and exposure.  Looks saleable as a children's book cover!  Or could inspire a children's book story.
  • Dan, I forgot to mention, when I played with sharpening of that photo of the red rock, I could achieve non-objectionable sharpening of the upper rocks, but would lose the texture of the bank along ...
  • I think by looking this closely at the trees in the background you may be seeing the limits of the resolving power of this lens and camera.   Or maybe excess sharpening or even hand shake that you ...
  • There's still a bit of halo in both. Maybe this is what I'm calling the smearing that you see? These images have a lot of detail all at a considerable distance, so they are a good/difficult test.  ...
  • Diffraction is light from the subject passing by the edges of the aperture opening and bending a little and thus not landing where it should on the sensor. The smaller the aperture, the greater ...
  • There are pros and cons to using the M6 in your situation.   It's not a bad idea, but I'd sure think about the SL2 instead if you really think you are headed for ff down the road.  It has some ...
  • I rarely us more than a CPL (and then only for water or though a window or similar) so take this with a grain of salt.  Could one not also put a step-up ring on the 11-22 and use larger stacked ...
  • The below is a copy of a post I made in another very similar recent thread. It might be helpful...………….. You have some options to achieve sufficient DOF in mall situations with 22mm and no IS. You ...
  • You have some options to achieve sufficient DOF in mall situations with 22mm and no IS. You start with the advantage of a moderately wide and very sharp 22mm. From there you can test higher ISO; ...
  • No Impact. Back in the time of the D3 (3MP) and then the 20D (8MP) I dreamed of going full frame.  Eventually did with the 5D/I/II/III.  Then Arthur intervened and I realized that APS-C had come a ...
  • +2   The overlap between the 11-22 and the 18-150 is enough to cut back some on the amount of lens swapping needed.  I.e., the overlap is in a region you will use often and often you can make do ...
  • Great work.  Thanks for sharing your experience.   I use the 85 on my M5 as a replacement for my old 135mm f/2 L (on a 5DMkII/III) which I dearly loved even though it didn't get used much in my ...
  • Early on the M5 got a lot of flak for being "creaky" and "plasticky" ... I was most bothered by the set button which would do a kind of "scritch" when pressed.  For sure the set button noise was ...
