About me:

Spent the first 20 years of my career as a newspaper photographer, followed by the last 19 years shooting stock and fine art landscape. I love being out in the beauty of America and making compositions from that inspiration!

  • I'm surprised we have not seen actual leaked pics yet. With the comment that it will be “amazingly” small, maybe it is styled after the X-S10, so perhaps that back of camera shot in the Fuji event ...
  • Thanks for that detailed instruction Tim. Wondering if I could just use a dremel to cut off the pin flush with the mount. Ross
  • Great response Tim, thanks. I'll have to try those techniques on my next windy shoot. Yes I too am not fond of that safety pin on the CB-70D. I may have to see if I can do the clamp replacement. Ross
  • I wish I was back in my 40's :-) Cool that you are taking care of yourself. I wish I had gotten serious about fitness much earlier. I'm loving the weightlifting and am hoping to get to 400lbs on ...
  • Yes, most landscape pros I'm acquainted with are carrying no more than 3 series. Personally I love using a 5 series in the field and enjoyed my older model until I fell and cracked the CF. I now ...

  • I love the waterfall shot. Your choice of shutter speed was wise, and the rock background is itself a piece of art worth admiring.
  • Sorry to revive a thread from last year but I have a question for @midimid. With the Yongnuo RF-603 II in the hot shoe of the Z6/7 you also need the cord connected from it to the remote port on ...
  • I really like the RRS version for the Z6/Z7 where it extends under the camera's grip to offer that extra bit of handholding comfort, and I hope they do come out with same for the Z50.
  • Replied in Z50 L Bracket
    I emailed RRS asking about a Z50 l-plate and received their reply today: "Presently there is no definitive plan to produce a dedicated plate system for the Z50. We are however tracking market ...
  • Excellent, looking forward to it. Thank you for sharing this info with us!
  • The 70-200 is looking spectacular. I too am very interested in your impressions of the 24-200.
  • It's a good question and would be nice to get an answer, but i suspect only Nikon knows.
