  • also check the battery contacts. the metal used is very thin and easily corrodes.
  • Thanks for showing these, Trevor.  It has been a real treat to watch you grow over the years.  I have just starting trying to take pictures of (any kind) of birds.  My reflexes are slow and I am ...
  • Trevor, These are just astounding!  Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you! For whatever reason every time I was out it was so cold the meat in my legs would get cold.  But it did not stop me.  The first few not very good shots - but completely different from ...

    It just takes a couple good pictures to lure you in,  and make one try to do better. I have the 12-100f4 and it became my favorite of all of my lenses.  I kept on observing that the 300f4 got the ...

    Thank you.  It is amazing how many hundreds it takes to get a half dozen that are ok. brent
  • Thank you for taking the time to answer.  I can see that there is a whole world of learning outside of photography to enter into this world of birding.  I appreciate the honor you give to each of ...
  • Really a pleasure to view. I have some questions, as I am just learning; (1) how do you get so close?  I have been shooting birds in the feeder.  I put branches near the feeder to keep it looking more ...
  • Created discussion thread Eagles Fishing
    So I got a new lens (300 F4) and have never tried BIF before.  So I apologize in  advance for my lack of experience, however I did want to share a bit what a fun and challenging experience it is.  ...
  • which lens are you using? has hires ever worked for you?
  • There is something about photography in general that expands my ability to see.  Funny that it takes looking through that little hole of a viewfinder to see it.
  • Just so nice to look at.  Gives us that are just trying our hand at it something to aspire to. Thanks so much for sharing, brent
  • >> I can’t match your levels of detail in spite of being quite experienced in bird photography. I have just started trying my hand at bird photography.  I have always used e-shutter for landscapes ...
  • I do not have a lot of $$ but spread over time: I would buy a kit lens set to start with an inexpensive body Then save for the Oly 12-100, 60mm and 300F4 and buy them all used with a weather sealed ...
  • If you keep a spare in the pocket you can alternate. A charged battery will last at least an hour with the camera out in -10F (e-shutter).  I just did this January 1st: https://www.dpreview.com/for ...
  • I live in a pretty flat area (Minnesota).  It helps sometimes to get a wider field of view without necessarily adding height. You can use a tripod, I am not sure if you can use hi-res mode, and I ...
  • and any gear can do it. Panoramas are actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
  • I really think that switching over to all electric is not going to be all that cheap.  Electric heat has to be the most expensive thing going
  • I was over taking pictures of a frozen waterfall and saw the steam rising off the river.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the skiiers in there.  Some people rise to challenges I would not even ...
  • John - I was all bundled on the shore taking pictures.  This is a yearly tradition for this group (several skiiers were taking turns).  It is one of those winter challenge type of things. Thanks ...
