  • Replied in My next camera
    Alright, hoping for this year.   I miss the 1.6x reach of my DSLR's.   Hope they improve the AF and rolling shutter.  Willing to pay a bit more than the R7 MK1.
  • Thanks Kent.   There seem to be more northern hawk owls around this winter than snowy owls.  Only referring to Ontario and Quebec.
  • I have great things about PureRaw.  Some say it's better than Topaz Denoise, etc.  Only one problem, I shoot JPeg :-)
  • Thanks.  For this image,  I applied no noise reduction.  I normally use Neat Image to clean up noise. I want to get a more flexible noise reduction software such as Topaz but that means I will have ...
  • I know the feeling :-)   I had a sharp one but later on, the lens was off and on.   I assumed part of that had to do with the sometimes iffy AF of the DSLRs I was using.  You know the story with ...
  • Taken last summer or fall with R6 MK2 at ISO 204,800. This is WHY I got the R6 MK2. Fox at ISO 204,800 photo - golfpic photos at pbase.com x
  • Created discussion thread Roadside Diner (eye-AF helped)
    This photo was taken at 1/800 handheld. The eye-AF tracking worked great here to keep the eye sharp.  Without eye-AF, the focus may have been on the body or anybody's guess. One of the many great ...
  • I seldom use my Pbase account. My "Instagram" account is on The WeatherNetWork Canada under Ottawa, Ontario. Canada :-) I post under Nature Lover since 2013. 11 years now. I haven't abandonned ...
  • Almost 20 year old lens but still works. It used to get a lot of flack before mirrorless for being soft, etc.  DSLR's also contributed to iffy focusing.  The R6 MK2 AF has brought new life to it.  ...
  • With the closing of POTN, how many other photography forums have disappeared over the years?  BTW, dang, 22 years reminds me of how long I have been doing this digital photography thing :-)  ...
  • I'm not a R7 user so not sure why I'm commenting on it except to say that I have watched Duade Paton's videos and other reviews on the R7 and they all say similar. However, I plan to be an R7 MK2 ...
  • I'm with you, I need more reach.  I'm just willing to wait a bit for the next R7.  i was hoping the R7 replacementt was going to come out sooner but doesn't look like it.  The R7 must be selling ...
  • Thanks Alastair.   Full-frame spoiled me :-)  I went from 7D MK2 to 6D (v.1) and never went back.   My great experience with the 6D (v.1) made the decision to go with R6 MK2 easy. I didn't go for ...
  • Thanks Rudy. I'm sure it can with edge focusing on the subject. It offers the contrast the camera is looking for. In dark conditions with a fast lens like a f/2.8, I aim the AF point on the edge ...
  • Yes, it strugggled to AF in the dark. I had to use manual focus. The ideal lens for this situation would have been the RF 400 2.8L which is close to $20,000 CAD with taxes. It's only a hobby, so ...
  • Created discussion thread The R6 MK2 can't overcome darkness
    I have taken photos of foxes at ISO 204,800 in very low light but even the R6 MK2 can't overcome darkness. I seldom use flash but it was the only way to obtain a photo of this red morph eastern ...
  • So, when is the R7 MK2 coming out?  :-)   I know someone who is shooting with the R7 and RF 100-500 and has great photos.  He said it's all about compromises.   R7 has the great reach.  R6 MK2 has ...
  • Full-frame R6 MK2 means I am missing the reach of my previous 7D MK2.   I toyed with getting the RF 800 f/11, then thought about the RF 100-500 + 1.4x and now the new Rf 200-800. Between Jan ...
  • Replied in Nothing BUT
    I don't live anywhere close to the boreal forest either.  However, every winter some of the boreal forest owls move southward in search of food due to usually a lemming crash up north. This has ...
  • I don't much if any flash photography.   98% of my photography does NOT involve flash.   So, excuse my ignorance with flash use.  :-) Problem solved.  Turns out I was in Ai-Servo mode.  Once I went ...
