  • Replied in Passing art...
    André, I have a similar piece of art in my neighborhood. Many years ago (ten?), out of the blue, an elephant made of a part of a palm tree leaf appeared hung on a trunk of on one of the trees. ...
  • Created discussion thread Eggs
    Easter time arrived, and we have to acknowledge it whether we celebrate it or not. For me, Easter has always been associated with dyeing eggs--frankly, a commercial aspect of Easter. When I was a ...
  • I use Manfrotto quick releases. I have a small collection of flash cold shoes on cheap ball heads (made in China, $15 or so apiece) screwed to release plates for this purpose. Some of the ball ...
  • Indeed, I was able to find a few on Amazon. Funny thing, I have never been paying attention to them. All of my (...photographic...) life i’ve been using hot or cold shoes put on the ball heads, and ...
  • Interesting flash holder. I have never come across it before, and have always used a flash mount. Can you post more info where and when you bought it?
  • Replied in New P1000
    I am guessing that the image was shot as jpeg. P1000 supports raw format. If raw was used, most likely the texture on the overexposed area on the top of the bird’s head could be retrieved by ...
  • Thanks for the links, John. i am learning something, too. :-)
  • John, I really doubt whether the capacity of the charge source used for retaining the camera configuration info has noticeable impact on the primary power source. It’s required capacity (regadlesss ...
  • New lithium ion batteries initially don’t have full capacity, and have to be “formed”. This is done by consecutive charging. Typically the battery reaches its full capacity after 3-5 charging cycles.
  • There is also another kind of the macro rails. It allows for adjustment in both parallel and perpendicular planes: It’s not much more expensive than the one plane rail, and it’s more versatile. i ...
  • Viewfinder: right eye. LCD screen: both eyes. 🙂
  • I always carry with me a spare a spare battery (genuine Nikon). That said, I always charge the battery I used after every photo session, so always start from “full”. So far, I have never had a need ...
  • Very nice macros!
  • Thank you all for kind words. As for the wide lens, it was the first lens of this type I bought, and I did a lot of research before buying it. I selected moderate parameters (there were wider ...
  • Of course, it all depends on many factors, one of them being getting the new camera. There is a learning curve associated with acquisition of new equipment, and your average drops down for first ...
  • Created discussion thread Three pictures
    Here are three pictures. Their common denominator is a single hike, but each of them addresses a different aspect of photography. 1. Killdeer. This bird, although relatively common, is incredibly ...
  • Thanks. In my area, during summer, the temperature often creeps to mid nineties (95F=35C), and sometimes goes above 100F (37.7C). Fortunately there are big bodies of water around preventing ...
  • Created discussion thread Substituting for cormorants...
    The closer it gets to summertime, the more obvious P1000's 3.000 mm focal length perils become. It was warm today, the temperature reached 80F (close to 27C for those who use this unit). I noticed ...
  • It's not perfect, I agree. It seems to be depending on the scene, distance, and occasionally flash angle. I learned to correct the flash exposure according to needs.
  • Just out of interest does the ttl metering work? Yes.
