  • I'm sure Andy really appreciates it :-) I take it you don't know Andy then ;-) I commented on the intense look in my other post up there, but a strike shot and actually capturing something is ...
  • With a heavy crop like that you start to lose fine feathering details and you end up with a small final result in both dimensions and megapixels. Noise starts to show its nasty little head as ...
  • Tell you what Pete, a Canon DO 400mm F/4 on your 7D MKII would be an interesting thing to try out and with the 1.4x TC, heck I was looking at some shots the other night with that lens and the 2x ...
  • Always adapted and anything that moves fast, the faster the better Weight doesn't worry me. Focal length does and I'll take a top quality 420mm Prime over a top quality 300 F/4 and 1.4x TC anyday. ...
  • Against FF I said mate ;-) Think the crop factor of m4/3 with the 500mm. But yeah, we can throw the 300 F/2.8L on as well with a 1.4x TC. So no need for the 300 F/4 + 1.4x TC. I'm waiting for a ...
  • That's why I use 500 and 800mm lenses on m4/3. Then there's no need to worry at all ;-) They can take shots that FF have trouble getting to. A 300 and 1.4x TC, well I would sooner have a fixed ...
  • Best performing, Canon FD 500 F/4.5L Prettiest, doesn't exist. All darn ugly I reckon. :-) If pushed I might go for the Minolta 600 F/4 as maybe the best looking. At a stretch, the Leica APO 400mm ...
  • I wish I could give you a hundred thumbs up for that ;-) It's been exactly the same even with film. Use what you need to, format, ISO (ASA), shutter speed and F/stop. Very simple really and so ...
  • Created discussion thread Duck !! I can walk on water
    I reckon I can walk on water, no sweat Not too bad down there, but that guy is watching me again Better put on a good show for this guy I bet I can walk on water, bet ya I can See told ya, Easy as ...
  • Obviously you do have concerns about it, otherwise why would you make a post about it. Strange post this one. Danny.
  • Great series Bill and Les, very nice variety and all well taken. Looked at all of the highway's ;-) and quite the trip. Good on you. Loved the butterfly and found the indigo bush on highway 395 ...
  • Ahh I see. Yes we can stack with some m4/3 cameras, so that's not an issue. I can hit a 4:1 very easily with m4/3 using a zoom lens with a Raynox DCR added to the lens. The big difference there, ...
  • Not easy to get these small flying bullets, well done Mark. Nice chase going on and for some reason I love looking up at BIF's with the wings out. Most seem to like them lower in the frame, but ...
  • The so called macro/microscope is just using digital zoom isn't it ?? Or is there some kind of magic going on ;-) Danny.
  • Replied in Very nice to see
    Good on you and fine shots as well, even the .... "lazy one" ;-) They make great practise for BIF's. Damselflies are a bit harder again, they are a lot smaller and also faster, around half the size ...
  • Ha. Yes well, I was wondering what all the fuss was about reading the other comments in here and watching the video :-) :-) Ahhh, I won't be buying one Martin ;-) All the best and having trouble to ...
  • Replied in Leica 25mm ?
    Can't seem to find a Leica 25mm https://www.dpreview.com/products/leica/lenses?subcategoryId=lenses Is it an old MF lens by any chance ? All the best. Danny.
  • And there you have it !! ;-) The built in hoods on the 500 and 800 are fine and long, but always add the external hoods as well. Light can be a blessing or a royal pain in the butt sometimes with ...
  • Replied in 800mm is fun
    I use Canon 500 and 800mm lenses on the E-M10 and E-M1. You honestly think 300 is hard or 500, try 800mm ;-) Danny.
  • Replied in Jeepers Den !!
    Amazing details in those. The cliff paid off big time mate. Feel eye to eye level in these shots, what views. Phew, I wish we had them here Den, amazing looking eagle. Excellent for heavy crops. Al ...
