DaveOl's recent activity

  • Since I took this picture, I have added a barrier to the staff and the squirrels and others can not climb up it anymore.  Not all of the birds have gotten used to the change and only a few are ...
  • Created discussion thread Visitor to my backyard
    This guy was climbing up to my suet feeder one afternoon a few weeks ago.  It looks like he is posing for the picture and smiling.  It was taken thorough a double paned window with a cheaper lens ...
  • Sorry I haven't gotten back to you before now, but I haven't been looking at this site lately.  I really like the Epson V 600 and it seems to do a good job on everything I put through it.  I've ...
  • Created discussion thread Computer glasses
    I don't know where else to ask this so here goes.  Since I am getting older I can't focus as close as I used to.  The computer screen is just a little out of focus and I need reading glasses to ...
  • Fortunately all of my Nikon lenses have aperture rings.  When the G lenses came out I refused to buy any because of the lack of the rings.  It was one of the reasons that I have moved away from ...
  • All of my Nikon lenses are D's not G series.  Does that mean that I should get the Nikon F to Fuji X adapter?
  • My son has sent us albums of his family a few times.  I think that he uses Mpix and sends his digital files to them from his computer. You may be right that after you're gone, no one will look at ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon to Fuji X mount adapters
    Does anyone have any experience, good or bad with the adapters available? There are about four or five brands on Amazon.  I have a number of Nikon lenses that I hardly use any more and would like ...
  • Don't mirrorless cameras have a lag factor unlike DSLR's?  If that is the case, how would you get a picture at the peak moment?
  • I think that I would get the new rangefinder style Hasselblad and all the available lenses. Either that or with the same money buy a small house!
  • Do you have a high school near you that teaches photography.  They may have a lab that you can use or you could pay one the students to do it for you.
  • A few years ago I asked the technician at Walgreens if they would just develop rolls of film without prints or scanning.  At that time they would .  That would be cheaper because of no postage, ...
  • You may have to go to Leica and pay 5x the price or more for their superb service, but count on months to get a camera or lens serviced.
  • Created discussion thread A visitor at our suet feeder
    Got these pictures in our backyard at the suet feeder. The first one looks like he is posing for the picture.  I think that this is the culprit that has been knocking down my sunflower seed feeder ...
  • Replied in Mystery holes
    We do get groups of crows occasionally.  I haven't seen what is actually doing it.
  • Replied in Mystery holes
    Never thought that the squirrels would do this.  They do make larger depressions in the much and I have seen them rubbing their backs in them and also doing flips (not kidding).
  • Created discussion thread Mystery holes
    The bird forum that I usually ask these questions seems to be down at the moment so I'm going to ask here. I have conical holes all over my mulch bed and in the front yard. I don't think that they ...
  • If you have brothers and sisters, they would probably love to have copies of these.  It might be worthwhile to invest in a medium or low priced scanner.
  • I think that I have an old Lentar preset lens that I bought used a long time ago.
  • I haven't read all the answers on your question, but I bought an Epson V600 a few years ago and have scanned negatives, slides and prints with it.  It came with Photoshop Elements and had digital ...
