math guy's recent activity

  • I've had good luck with Haida, Marumi, and Kenko Pro1 filters. To be fair, I've never used a top-shelf brand like B+W, so I can't make a comparison. But I've been pleased using multi-coated ...
  • Nice set. I especially like the stones and the raindrops! The DA21 has long been one of my favorite lenses.
  • Created discussion thread irony
    Years ago I began with a Pentax K-x, and one of the drawbacks I eventually ran into was its inability to allow ISO to float while having shutter speed and aperture fixed. In other words, M mode ...
  • Love that fisherman shot!
  • Great set! I especially like this one:
  • Replied in DA 70 Ltd.
    the 70 Ltd without question I often use the 21-35-70 trio and find it perfect for a lightweight prime kit. One way to think about it is to have each prime be roughly 2x the previous one, so a ...
  • I really like this one, Mike! And those last two sorta look like something Dean could post from Down Under. You caught the deer in a kangaroo pose.
  • To help with that part, I'd recommend Bryan Peterson's book Understanding Exposure .
  • I hadn't thought about that before, but you're right -- the front element is set pretty deep, probably more so than the DA21 is with the hood attached.
  • I've started avoiding step rings as much as possible after having too much trouble separating filters from them. But thanks for the suggestion.
  • Created discussion thread hood for DA 50 f/1.8
    I recently bought the DA 50 f/1.8 which does not come with a hood. Well I have to say I'm really happy with the hood I ended up getting. It has an adapter that screws into the threads, and then ...
  • Well I've had the DA 35 f/2.4 for years now and had no trouble with the mount. And the IQ is reasonably close to that of my Limited primes. I suppose it's just a matter of what type of situations ...
  • Replied in thanks!
    Thanks for pointing this out, Alberto! The DA 50 has been on my list for a while, and this deal is the best Ive seen for it. Had a B&H credit to use, so I just ordered it.
  • Great series! Sixteen years ago I stayed at a friend's cottage in Fryeburg, a few miles west of Shawnee Peak. Watched a double feature of The Perfect Storm and Chicken Run at the Bridgeton ...
  • You've captured the light perfectly! I hope one day I get the chance to visit your beautiful country.
  • The exterior shots are beautiful, especially number 4. But that shot of the staircase in in a league of its own. Just a fantastic shot in so many ways... perspective, composition, color.. outstanding!
  • Great series. I lived up in New England for several years and always loved getting over to the Maine coast. Your photos bring back some good memories. Glad you included my favorite lighthouse: ...
  • Wow - those are beautiful photos of a beautiful place! I would say your new location has definitely inspired your photography.
  • I understand why some people prefer that method, but I like the simplicity of having it all in LR. And when I want to compare two different versions, I just create a virtual copy.
  • Thanks, guys. I must be remembering wrong. Maybe it was other presets I was using, not the ones from Nik. Opening as a separate TIFF is not nearly as convenient as what I used to do. Besides being ...
