  • Replied in solar eclipse
    I shot a solar eclipse, a few years ago, with my NEX5 mirrorless cam. I used a Tokina ATX 150-500mm 5.6 lens in Pentax mount with a solar filter that a friend loaned me attached. The filter was ...
  • That's a very good, sharp lens. I feel this image looks very good and I don't find the noise objectionable. I use three old macro lenses on my a77ii, with "no glass" adapters. Two in Pentax mount ...
  • Replied in Flash for A57
    Exactly what I did. Picked up a used HVL-42AM, for my a57, on ebay . It's a good flash and works great with my a57. I don't do a lot of flash photography, but when I do, this does what I need. I ...
  • I agree with your thoughts, Jack. Over the years, I shot with Pentax for quite a few years, good cameras that produced a lot of good images, then with Nikon for a few years, also very good cameras ...
  • I've been using a Meike MK-320s TTL Speedlight for Sony, for the last year, on both my a6000 and my a77ii. It's fairly small and has most features except for HSS, and is reasonably powerful, for ...
  • Wow, I haven't seen that ship in years. I was stationed on the USS Maddox DD 731, back in the 60s. We were operating with the Turner Joy when the Tonkin Gulf Incident occurred. The Maddox was much ...
  • That Vivitar 55mm 2.8 macro is a very good lens. I have three examples of this lens, in three different mounts, that I use on different cameras. I have found this lens to be so sharp and to ...
  • Both are very nice lenses. I, personally, prefer the rendering of the Travegon in the first three sets of comparison shots. On the fourth set, I preferred the rendering of the Pentax more.
  • Just get the a68. I've been shooting, for a while, with an a57. It's a great camera and I really like it. That said, I'm saving up for an a68. The combination of higher resolution, micro focus ...
  • Hi sharks, I shot for some time with a Nikon D7000. It's a great camera. I had looked at Sony , a few times, but never bought one. That is, until a few weeks ago. I had a chance to pick up an a57 ...
  • Commented on photo Twisted Bristlecone in the In the Dark challenge

    Congratulations, on getting first place. I certainly agree with it. Beautiful work in post processing.

  • Replied in American Kestral
    There's an American Kestral that hunts in the area near my house. I hadn't seen him, lately. Not because he hasn't been around, I'm sure, but because I haven't been out outside much, to see him. A ...
  • For about $180, I bought an excellent condition used Tamron 17-50 2.8 that works great on my a57 and is good in low light. When the light is good, I have a Minolta 24-85 3.5-4.5 that works great ...
  • Just recently, I was trying to decide between the 30 2.8 Macro and the 35 1.8 prime. I read good things about both of them. In the end, I went with the 35 1.8. As I have other lenses for macro and ...
  • A few days ago, a series of small rain storms passed over my house. I looked out my front door and saw this. It looked like it was right behind my neighbors' house.  I grabbed the a57, which had ...
  • Replied in Douglas
    Thanks for looking and commenting. We're both in agreement on Ralf's crop. hex anon
  • Hi Ralf, you know, I had similar thoughts to yours when I looked at the original. I posted it "as shot" though, and wanted to see what others thought. Thanks for looking and sharing your opinion, ...
  • I like all of these images. But my favorite is the shot of the mushrooms. hex anon
  • Created photo thread OK Used Cars
    Hi All, and a happy Halloween. I was in town earlier, running some errands, and as I was about to head home I saw this. I have been shooting with Sony mirrorless cameras for a couple of years, and ...
  • Replied in lhkjacky
    Thanks. And, just the part about improving the AF in burst mode is reason enough, for me. hex anon
