Mike -'s recent activity

  • Nice shots, thanks. $450...I'da been first in line.  Those baby's don't maintain and fuel themselves. Mike
  • I have one of these on all of my SLR's (and A6300) - https://optechusa.com/slr-wrist-strap.html Nice straps, even my 5D IV has one on it. Mike
  • tbcas - Never said you did mention the A9, just a comment from another post. Though from your post...I guess both my A77 II and my A99 are different from yours.  When I press the shutters for ...
  • Replied in Mind made up...
    The 99 II wins. I have three A series, unused lenses from my (sold) A99, and no unused Nikon lenses (one full frame Nikon camera, one lens), so...soon as I get back from work travel, an A99 II it is. ...
  • Replied in No
    I have Canon, Sony and Nikon in various forms. I set the power saver to 2 minutes and just leave them on.  While I've never left my A6300 on all day, I have my various Canon's and Nikons.  I've ...
  • Note: The A99 has been sold. Mike
  • I stuck with the small (APS-C) bodies for a long time because of the extra reach (1.6 magnification).  But a few years back when the "old" 6D went on sale, I decided to give it a try. Lets just ...
  • Works reasonably well on an FX body, not as good on a DX body, mostly sharpness wise. Not quite up to Canon's "L" lenses, but not too far off. These days, it's best to have bodies and lenses that ...
  • Very...nice. One improvement...crop/remove the housing out of the shot.  Add more trees to cover the houses/apartments.  Keep the picture as large as you can, just delete the structures. Mike
  • Created discussion thread What 6D II review ?
    I read DP Review.  I've learned a bit from reading the reviews and the forum comments over the years.  I also know that it " normally " takes many weeks, months...to get a camera body or lens ...
  • Replied in Coins...
    Pull one from your pocket.  Assign a camera to each side of the coin, flip it into the air, let it hit the ground...see which side is up. The rest is easy. Mike
  • Created discussion thread 250+ mph...
    Haven't looked at this section before. Should have..! I posted this a while back to another section. Taken with my old...6D and my "older" 35-350L lens. Blown up to 100%, most all of the sponsor ...
  • travelinbri - Understand, obviously not class leading sharpness, tripod mounted. That criteria was not in your original comment as I recall.  Though the camera (not a 6D) was..! But, hand held in ...
  • Per your first sentence see the below picture - This was taken with an "old" 6D (not 5D IV) and a nonstabilized 35-350 lens.  The car was moving about 250mph, coming at me at about a 35 or 40 ...
  • Replied in Please restate
    Confusing question... 1. Will someone take a picture of the back of their A6000 ? 2. Can "you" take a picture of "your own" A6000 ? If you want to see the backside of the A6000, just look in the ...
  • The A9 is WAY out of my price range... And no, I can everything I need to see as the mirror moves up and down.  May not be a clear view of an open window, but having a "open/close/open" shade is ...
  • It IS...an extra step.  one now needs "two" digits to perform what "one" would normally complete. But it's not "really" needed...  It's just something different to accomplish the same task as the ...
  • While I "do not" like the Electric View Finder (had a A99, have an A77 II), but I'm to understand that the A99 II has a much better developed electric view finder, without so much blackout during ...
  • I've also making a run at this "cool" thing to do. Switcheroo, I'm with you.  Even with my somewhat larger hands, I find that pushing the back button on my A6300 is NOT that difficult...BUT why, ...
  • Created discussion thread Decisions, decisions
    An A99 II now or wait to see what the D850 Nikon looks like..! I was all set to by an A99 II, now the D850 is on the way in a short time.  I'm not a "one or the other" type person.  I have Canon, ...
