  • Created discussion thread Removal of Strap Eyelets
    How easy is it to remove the camera strap eyelets from an OMD? The black plastic that surrounds the metal appears quite soft - I don't want to break it. I'm finding that it gets in the way while ...
  • Replied in New Purchaser
    So what I'm hearing then is that the Mark III has changed the menu options in a way that will disable the photographer from customizing the camera - that is the largest significant change?  Other ...
  • Replied in New Purchaser
    So is it safe to recommend then that for anyone debating between the Mark II vs the Mark III - as a consumer without any Olympus body at the moment, stick with the Mark II and not the new?
  • Created discussion thread OMD EM-10 Mark III
    The new version of this camera line is due soon, and with that price drops on the Mark II is reflective on many vendors..... Would it be foolish to not get the Mark III over the Mark II?  Just that ...
  • Created discussion thread D760 after the D850 hype? :)
    The D850 is sure making the headlines, and I can't stop drooling over the it, but at the moment financially it's out of my reach, but not ruling it out in the future. However, perhaps if and when ...
  • Replied in Kenya Safari
    Nice collection of shots!!  Thank you for sharing with us. This inspires me to want to go to Africa more and more..... It would be nice as well to hear about your travel plans - did you use a tour ...
  • I've been with Canon as far as I can remember, and I made the switch last year - I didn't experience any issues with getting familiar and proficient in using the Nikon gear and system.  It's part ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon's AutoFine Tune - Observations
    Just thought I'd share my experience these past few days in trying out the Nikon Auto Fine Tune feature built in into the D500. I think the future does work - it is able to provide an AF Tune value ...
  • I typically get 800 or so shots in single shot mode - with minimal chimping as well.  But for CH mode, I can easily get into the 2000s.  Where did you get the 2740 figure from?
  • Created discussion thread Wildlife Workshops Abroad
    Ok, I need some new wildlife subjects to photograph and in flipping through a photograph magazine I see advertisements for workshops aimed directly at wildlife.  They all seem rather expensive, ...
  • Great to hear!  Just curious, were most of the shots done using single shot mode, or multiple frames? I find that in shooting CH mode, I can easily get over 2000+ shots on a single charge.
  • Since acquiring the Nikkor 200-500mm for my D500, it is back focusing, and I"ve had to AF tune to it to a value of "-6" using printed calibration charts, etc.......to what I think to get the ...
  • I'll have to try out the TC 14 - I have one, but haven't had the opportunity to try it out.  I'm hoping that with the D500 fast focus, the impact won't be that great. Best practice is always to ...
  • Nice catch of the Oystercatcher - never seen or heard of it before - thanks for sharing. At that distance it'll be difficult to get pin point sharpness but post sharpening helps to give a viable ...
  • Created discussion thread BlackRapid Strap - Clones
    Just wondering if anyone has one of these straps, which essentially is almost the same as the BR ones: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DA4HULE
  • Thanks for all the responses...I'll have to pick up some of the products mentioned. As for UV filter - maybe I should just do that and be less critical, but over time you'd still have to clean the ...
  • Created discussion thread Best way to clean glass
    Hi all: Just wondering what would be the best cleaning fluid to use in cleaning the front element of the lens.  I think using a microfibre cloth is a given.  I tried a LensPen once, and it ended up ...
  • i think good lighting such as your posted photo would ensure proper contrast for good focusing; hence sharper images? I'm bad at judging distance - maybe need to get one of them range finders :)
  • I'm not expecting any zoom lens to necessary beat any prime lens - if it was that easy nobody would fork out extraordinary amounts of cash for primes if the image quality and build was in the same ...
  • Recently I picked up the 200-500mm Nikkor.  Build quality seems okay but definitely isn't constructed like the primes.  Wished it was fully weather sealed, but it's not, and the plasticky feeling ...
