  • Created discussion thread Panasonic G9 for video? Vs GH5?
    I'm primarily a stills shooter (wildlife/nature) but shooting more video now, and needing a better video solution. This cam is touted for it's still image capability, but the slo-mo features alone ...
  • Created discussion thread G9 for Video too? (over GH5?)
    I'm primarily a stills shooter (wildlife/nature) but shooting more video now, and needing a better video solution. This cam is touted for it's still image capability, but the slo-mo features alone ...
  • As it is I have both. I admitted my ignorance with these types of lenses and am always looking to expand my understanding. The beach shot is an example of fisheye as benefit. I try to take ...
  • Little wonder it's called "Dream Lake". Beautiful image, but I still don't see the VISUAL appeal of the fisheye barrel distortion. There's an in-depth wiki page on fisheye. And I sort of get the ...
  • Thanks for that Tom. I was really looking for a practical USE for fisheye. Perhaps that use lies with your explanation the optics. The Fisheye seems like it might be a worthwhile option if ...
  • Created discussion thread Why a Fish Eye lens?
    Is there a real use for a Fisheye Lens? I wanted the full frame equivalent of a fast 24mm lens for a 7DII. I didn't really understand that a 15mm FISHEYE lens is very different from an ASPHERICAL ...
  • Read my previous post about BenQ monitors. At B&H one under $1000, another at $1400 (Better color)
  • Replied in +1 NEC
    Thanks for the recommendations. I have worked on Eizo 27" monitors, and the height bothered me -esp for vertical image work. Also, the Eizo had a very odd display characteristic for the red ...
  • Created discussion thread 30"+ Display Monitors for Photo Editing
    The options for accurate displays for retouching/photo editing are many. Looks like ISP monitors are the way to go. I'm used to a 30" display, which is esp good for viewing vertical format images. ...
  • Created discussion thread Wildlife Cam rigs?
    Is anyone here using a motion activated cam other than a standard game cam to record wildlife? Or perhaps a high quality game cam? I have a motion activated game cam that has captured images of ...
  • Thanks, excellent looking bag, but only has loop for waist belt mount - like all the others. I have a similar bag which I took to my local leather crafter, with additional webbing & Velcro. I ...
  • Created discussion thread Shoulder strap mount - pocket cam pouch
    Anyone know of a soft case for compact cameras that can mount vertically on a backpack shoulder strap? timbuk2 makes one for iPhones, but my new Panny ZS100 is slightly too big. Mountainsmith made ...
  • I have always loved the look of 19th century images. And I know it's more than just the lenses. Very intrigued by the Lomography classic lens revival. I recently acquired a Lensbaby Composer Pro ...
  • Since my first post I called Lensbaby and immediately got detailed answers to all my questions from a very informed staff member. EXCELLENT customer service. Perhaps I'm the last shooter in the US ...
  • I have some still AND video projects that should emulate the classic 1940's Hollywood Noir look. I'm getting pretty good with the lighting, and use my faster lenses close to wide open to control ...
  • Stephen Dalton is definitely The Man. Inspiring images to say the least. Looking at the lighting on his bats-in-flight, makes me think think I might try using my new LED video spotlight first. With ...
  • Excellent details -thank you Richard! All good. And in answer to previous reply, alas I don't have open sky above. There is plenty of tree cover which makes any kind of auto focus a problem, even ...
  • There is a brief period each evening at dusk where small brown bats circle an area on my rear deck, in what I assume is a hunt for insects attracted to the window light. The bats make fairly tight ...
  • Created discussion thread Files Corrupted via Transfer
    I have been having recent issues with file corruption when transferring images from CF card to Mac Pro. By elimination I think the problem might be with a hub that is a necessary connector between ...
  • I will be capturing (b-roll) video of some bicycle stunts outdoors. the 7DII does not offer Movie Servo AF with full HD at 60fps. I really would like to have the full HD for post, and will ...
