  • As it happens I did my first Sony firmware update yesterday, to an A7III. The camera is pretty fresh so the USB-C connection is very firm. The actual updating between the computer and the camera ...
  • OK, thanks everyone. I'll give it a pass. I'm not looking to put a lot of money into it. I'd seen adapters for $100 and if those would work and put the old lens back to use, bonus. I like giving ...
  • That's the specific match I am in a position to do since I have both that lens and that camera. Also I have a Minolta 28-70 mm but the kit lens with the A7III has that range covered. I remember ...
  • One listed used is about $300 less than almost every other listing everything else being equal, and those others are all posting shutter counts well under 10,000. Since I found only inconclusive ...
  • My best estimate is at least 50-60 feet from the motorcycle. I was already back in my car packing up when it arrived and I was tired so I shot all of these from my driver's seat. I'd already taken ...
  • That's beautiful. To help me visualize how that out of focus background is possible, what were the distances between you and the bird, and from the bird back to that vegetation background? I can ...
  • This is why I have ordered some cables with an embedded LED display to indicate the level of power passing through the cable. I bought a 60W charger, I want to see "60" on that display when I feed ...
  • Artcise EB36R It's well finished and entirely aluminum alloy except for a knob or two. It's a 36mm diameter ball head with a 360° rotation base below the ball and a second rotation base just below ...
  • Something related but not photography, that I did to myself. This isn't so much advice as it is an experience to share to make the point. Ages ago I was primarily publishing and graphic design. If ...
  • I took out my SX50 to see if there was a setting that might disable it but as long as the flash cover is flipped open, the lightning bolt icon appears at the right of the screen and the flash ...
  • Now you've got me thinking about my mother's side of the family - two generations of gamekeepers in the highlands of Scotland so, the amount of fly fishing was extensive since part of that vocation...

  • I have a Godox 80cm square box attached to a Godox mount provided in the SL60W kit. All of that is clamped to the spigot of a Mantis light stand. I did some modifications to mine but without an ...
  • Replied in Zebras
    Up front, I'm far from an expert on exposure but I'm answering because I do usually have zebras turned on, at least for a while when I'm settling into a shooting scenario. I mean, if the lighting, ...
  • I'm fond of much of my photo/video gear. Still, I only sleep next to it, not with it. Seriously, I live in a large open loft with a huge box skylight 15 feet above me, open lumber framing, etc. ...
  • The way those two cameras are positioned in the photo is the way I place mine. Not that my expertise counts for much. Someone a while back said they got a little tip from the technician servicing ...
  • This came across my Facebook feed this afternoon. Make of it what you will, I have no connection to this group. It might be the right thing for the right person(s) on this forum. https://jobs.smart ...
  • Weeellll... This is a demo hodge podge of footage I had taken from 2014 onwards. Most of it was shot on a Canon Vixia HF R50 . The Evinrude outboard is an example of what I would get on a good day. ...
  • I would be interested to know how you print lens caps, because they have those internal flexible arms to engage the lip of the lens. At the same time they have features on the opposite outer face. ...
  • Markus Pix does a lot of segments about really REALLY cheap camcorders. He gets results too. Like you say, just get out there and enjoy it and if they improve over time even better.

  • No toys, just tools. A Calibrite Colorchecker Passport Photo 2. It doesn't sound like an exciting item, but I'd like to approach consistency in the colors of my shooting since the most important ...
