    Its also where we plug in the remote control Glen and its used a lot !! ;-) Mind you I'm pretty rough on gear, but that little bit of stupid rubber was the first thing to get cut off. If the Oly ...
  • Commented on photo Bianca Buitendag-7809 in the Surfing! challenge

    Now that's action !! Excellent shot and the water movement couldn't be any better. congrats on the win and the shot. Danny.

  • ;-) No it doesn't worry me at all ......... any more ;-) Danny.
  • Had a lot of questions about this in my posts and it takes me awhile to get around to things like this, so here goes. Why I've been a bit quite lately. I'm no writer so don't look too hard at the ...
  • I realise you want to use a DSLR, but as others have suggested a mirrorless body suits MF lenses. Doesn't have to be the latest or greatest by any means. My Sony NEX-7 is well over 4 yrs old and ...

    Just fart. Gone in an instant. Danny.
  • Very clever shots in here Geoff. Love that first one as almost a silhouette. Interesting shots with the closeups and man, you just have to love those colours !! Makes for great shooting and you ...
  • Spoonbills I always try and go lower in exposure and even then, they lose details in those whites, even with RAW its hard in PP. They are a pain to get right otherwise. Blacks on the bills and ...
  • Yes they sort of ignore most things around them when they are digging away. They do get really close if you just wait. Thanks very much for that Bill. Danny.
  • Not a pretty bird for sure Geoff, sort of prehistoric looking. I do kind of like them though :-) its like looking in a mirror with my nose mate :-) All the best Geoff. Danny.
  • Had a lot of questions about the MF techniques and lenses. I did a post up a few years ago for the Sony forum at the time. I have a full right up on the desktop with notepad on my desktop using ...
  • Same day as the Kingfisher shots from the other day and same setup, E-M10 and the Canon FD 800 F/5.6L. Tripod only with that lens. Off and about See ya later If you simply wait, they will come ...
  • Replied in Gees Trev ;-)
    Ahh, didn't know it was broken Trev, just as well for the 100-400 mate ;-) Its working extremely well looking at these and the other air show post. The reason I love that linked shot is that its ...
  • Replied in Gees Trev ;-)
    What the heck are we supposed to say !! :-) The first post was superb with the shots and no way could I pick a favourite and here we are again. You know your subjects and know when to push that ...
  • Replied in Depends
    I use mirrorless, Oly E-M10 and a Sony NEX-7 with Canon FD long fast tele lenses. I don't use AF lenses though, so it depends on what you want. I like the resolution of a larger sensor, but prefer ...
  • Replied in FD 100 - 300
    Probably not had the 100-300 F/5.6L at a guess and they cost a bit more than $25 ;-) Unless that's a bad case of multi coloured CA. Danny.
  • Exactly which Canon FD 300mm are you talking about ?? FD 300 F/2.8L FD 300 F/4 FD 300 F/4L FD 300 F/5.6 or one of the zooms. The Canon FD 100-300 F/5.6L is darn sharp and no CA, excellent for a ...
  • Commented on photo Natures Frame in the Local Park challenge

    Amazing Robert. What a large print this would make, top shot and fine work. Danny.

  • Replied in Very nice
    Awww, beautiful shots !!. Great backgrounds and fine details and you just have to love those colours. all the best and good work along with the shots. Impressive. Danny.
  • Replied in Exactly
    Not much point without those answers and what lenses do they plan on using. Bang on the money that question. Danny.
