  • Replied in Very nice Andy
    Love the look you have in these, great lighting and love the colours. Excellent shots that tell a story IMO. So FF with the Sony huh ;-) Nice and an excellent setup obviously. If I was going FF, ...
  • Replied in Ahhh the crop
    Yes correct. I use a Sony NEX-7 as well and over 99% of the shots on these are taken with the NEX-7 and manual focus ..... https://www.flickr.com/photos/124733969@N06/sets/ https://www.flickr.com/p ...
  • Replied in :-)
    Awww me grummer and spellunking is all up in de air ;-) :-) Ya's got me good
  • Replied in We can try
    Over 99% are with manual focus adapted lenses. Its all I own .... well there is a kit lens here somewhere that's been used 3 times in 5 years. Mirrorless boxes are bought to suit the lenses. I live ...
  • Only a fool would buy a camera and get into a system that doesn't have the lenses they want or need. Then only a fool would publicly go and admit it !! I bought the NEX-7 ....... awwww 5 years ago ...
  • Replied in Ha ;-)
    Am I aloud to say ....... I'm stuffed if I know what he's on about either :-) I once had some nutter say why not take a video of a series of KF shots I posted up having an argument (15 shots). My ...
  • Replied in We can try
    But try is all we can do. NEX-7 and Canon FD lenses using manual focus. Hobby and relaxation. https://www.flickr.com/photos/124733969@N06/sets/ A few shots in there with the Oly E-M10 recently, but ...
  • Nice, very nice !! Darn good work and its a type of Shield bug by the looks. Stink bug of all common names to pick :-) But I could be wrong as well with what you have. Nice markings and details in ...
  • Since its you mate ;-) Damsels are tiny and dainty compared to a Dragon Geoff. Those are taken at the closest focusing point on the 500 F/4.5L at 5 meters and at F/4.5 wide open. So no DOF to play ...
  • Replied in new em5mk2
    Good on you Don. Always nice to have added bonuses we don't expect sometimes. Nice. All the best Don, enjoy it :-) Danny.
  • Replied in Nice work Martin
    Dragons are a real challenge if they don't hover too long, nicely done. Heck you folks have some colourful birds out in the open. Beautiful little ones. Love the Cormorants, the eye colour is ...
  • That makes it a bit harder Paul. Still looking darn good though as they are. I've just lent my Sigma 500 f/4.5 APO (Nikon mount) out to a guy who wanted to try MF on a Nikon D500. So there's still ...
  • Very nicely done Paul. Love the one with it sitting on the fence post as well, gives a great idea of the environment. Nice action going on and some good behavior shots. All the best Paul, nice set ...
  • Out with the E-M10 with the Canon 500 F/4.5L and noticed this Cormorant on a bridge Shhh, I'll pretend I'm normal What the heck are you looking at Do we have a problem Darn sandflies are everywhere ...
  • Replied in Yep, no thanks.
    And I have no idea why people post up images from a studio scene with tiny images. Now what :-) If you want to impress, post up YOUR images, not miniature shots of a larger studio shot. How often ...
  • Replied in Darn good Tony
    Awww heck sorry Tony, I missed the MKII vs the MKI. Too early in the morning here :-) Makes sense. All the best Tony and nice shooting. Danny.
  • Replied in Great shots.
    Man they are stunning to see. I want one ;-) Beautiful shots and nice work in getting them. Well taken. If I can just say (and I'm guilty of this as well) maybe not crop in as much. Give them a ...
  • Since you picked a favourite, well it's my turn :-)  #1 and #7. All fine shots as always Vas, but those two, phew. Gorgeous birds and wonderful colours along with the details. Fine technique used ...
  • Replied in Darn good Tony
    Exactly a 1000 posts Tony this one. Why did I notice that !! Anyway :-) These are darn good and well taken. Nice wingspans and for some reason, I really like the the last two with the pinkish ...
  • Replied in Keep it simple
    FD is the way to go with a non AF adapter. If the EF lens has an aperture control on the lens, then it would work, but otherwise the aperture won't work as it requires an electrical contact. Keep ...
