  • Thanks ,that's good to know . Haven t been for a while  but a trip is on the cards and good viewpoints are always worth seeking  out . My pics from street level were pretty forgettable. Thought you ...
  • It s not just the lack of wires ( which may be worse at street level) but where were you standing to get that viewpoint ? Thats a great pic i m sure I looked for some elevation .Has someone opened ...
  • I ve just heard so many say the Tamron is better than the 200 - 500 and it goes to 600mm. I m surprised to hear so much love for it. I have the 300 mm PF F4 which is only the size of a 24 - 70 and ...
  • I m really looking forward to seeing what you get . There should be a lot of interesting images with the shadow going over so much high  human density landmass . Look to the skies !
  • Not sure  you ll gain much with a drone . I think you d have to be pretty high . if low you ll just get people looking up wondering what that drone is doing getting in the way ! There will probably ...
  • I haven t looked at this thread for a while after it got a bit.... I think you mean 500mm f/4 . No I meant get the 200 - 500 mm and  just use it at the long end as I have up to 400mm already ...
  • Dan - Your set up sounds great ,I m sure you ll get some lovely images . I m envious you can take all that kit. In India peole had security and areas cordoned off so they wouldn t be disturbed {or ...
  • No problem I hope you make it to this one.

  • Just how do you think you can "visually ride it" with exposure times of around 1/100 - 1/1000 second? Who said I was going to be shooting at those speeds ? I m expecting to shoot at a couple of ...
  • Thanks "User ########"  for all your information . Hopefully we ll both learn something to our advantage .
  • Ahhh  you say pre determined exposure ... It has to be programmed  ? Does that mean I can t stop it when I have the exposure I require ? That s kind of a prerequisite for me wanting to use it. You ...
  • Ok I wasn t going to go into that much detail as it s the  "live bulb" feature I m more interested in ,but yes I want the pinks of the chromosphere, You don t get a lot of time to bracket and I was ...
  • Created discussion thread Eclipse - live bulb
    I m not an Olympus owner but may well be one soon if anyone can tell me if the "Live bulb" feature will enable me  more easily to capture the corona during  totality . The colours are beautiful but ...
  • Thanks. August eh ? I ve heard September and "early Autumn", which I guess fits Sept more than Aug. Ha ha all nice and vague, to keep us on our toes...
  • Errrr there is a USS Spruance . I ve been on it. Great pics  ,very envious ,I would ve come down for one of the Gosport ferry boat trips ,but viewed from underneath not  as spectacular as you achieved.
