  • Its no good having a sharp shot if its full of noise. Every line in the feathers as you say is sharp would be ideal, not always possible though or realistic. Also depends on the angles of the ...
  • GX8, Canon FD 500 F/4.5L and a couple of batteries would do me Sam :-) or if APS-C swap that body for the Sony A6300. All the best Sam. Danny.
  • Its a bird, there ya go :-) Must keep my eyes out for one. Well done. Danny.

    Depends on how big the bird is mate !!!! ;-) :-) Hang on, full moon here so I'll go grab a quick shot ........... A quick shot with the 500mm, can't be bothered dragging out the 800mm :-) All the ...
  • Have you got live view set ?? AF I don't have a clue about, don't use AF lenses so know nothing about it, but with the long tele lenses I use the magnified EVF view with live view and hang on, I'll ...
  • I'm just very glad I'm not a seagull !! ;-) :-) Excellent shots Paul and love the formations. Very well taken. All the best Paul, nice going. Danny.
  • I use a Gimbal head on the monopod. Now starting to use it more with the 500mm as well, but still prefer hand holding for sure. Turning 61 this year and that monopod and Gimbal work well as I get ...
  • I'm actually surprised with how long you have been on DPR that you don't know the answer !! :-) That's a bit like me saying, why would anyone want to shoot wider than 400mm on any system. 300mm is ...
  • The lenses came first, so went through the options of a DSLR using MF legacy lenses. It meant using an adapter with added optics in them and they are shocking when it comes to sharpness. Extremely ...
  • I use a gimbal head on a monopod. Smooth, easy vertical and horizontal adjustment and also fast to use with the tele lenses. Heavy and strong, but allows for easy carrying of larger lenses when ...
  • I wanted extra storage for my tablet, so bought a Sandisk micro SD card, 200 GB. Thought I might try it with the adapter in the E-M10. stuck in, formatted it and no issue. Shows up with 8716 RAW ...
  • I'll take any mirrorless over any DSLR, anytime ;-) Size doesn't have a lot to do with it personally, heck the lenses are heavy enough anyway, so the Sony over any Canon DSLR, or Nikon, etc. All ...
  • Replied in Really?
    Yes but he doesn't want to see that, it doesn't suit him ;-) :-) Danny.
  • #1 in my book is a competition winner. Direct eye contact with that look and love the balance of that shot and of course its just plain GORGEOUS !!! :-) The white wall and the background couldn't ...
  • Again !! Go back to your last post on it and you will find your own answer. Gees. Both are terrible and both are excellent. it depends on the button pusher. I've seen fantastic shots from a $16,000 ...
  • Now that you mention it, m4/3 is not so bad after all. Danny.
  • Replied in Conditions
    Did you read what Jason said about the images ?? He is pretty much bang on with what he said. If you are a bird shooter then you would understand what the conditions can do with lighting and distance.
  • Beautiful bird these and very well taken. Honey eater I know them as and would love to get a few shots of them. Love the last shot going for the flower, good details in these Mark and the colours ...
  • You will be first to know mate ;-) Had 12 days in Darwin with a few Aussie bird shooters I know and Fogg Dam was the main hangout for the exotic birds that come in. Sort of ignored the rest which ...
  • Great variety Martin and darn good shots. Now I have to ask, what type of KF is that !! Doesn't look like a Sacred and certainly not an Azure, so I neeeeed to know ;-) Maybe an Asian variety. Its ...
