  • excellent wildlife images Peter. You are doing very nice work with the Olympus equipment. I find the EM1II works very well for wildlife in good light, with excellent reach. However I am often ...
  • Good shots Bob. I like the grebes best - the exposure has removed detail from the water Peter
  • Nicely taken Richard. I like the pose of the 3rd bird looking up at the other 2 Peter
  • Don't blame you for being distracted with an opportunity to catch that scene. Peter
  • Good shot Richard, beautiful light for a white bird. Belize must be a bird wonderland. Peter
  • I'll be absent from the Sunday Bird for the next couple of weeks as we are off to South Africa in the morning :-D Here's a couple of common Australian birds captured last week in Sydney's Royal ...
  • Replied in Sandisk . . .
    My current cards of choice are the  Sandisk Extreme 90MB/s 64G, and the Sandisk Extreme PLUS 80MB/s 32G. Both work well in the E-M1II doing 4K vid, and I have never had any lock-up problems I don't ...
  • Gotta get me one of them there new fangled MICRO cameras. My old DSLR just can't seem to get me close enough :-) Peter
  • I agree that the bright green boxes dancing around certainly don't enhance the view, but the advantage is that you can start with a single box or 5-box to discriminate your target, e.g. bird ...
  • Replied in No
    I insinuated nothing of the sort. I was responding to the statement by glassoholic: " it easy to cause this so I always switch the grip off unless I am doing a protracted series of vertical ...
  • Replied in No
    so you have a faulty grip and/or faulty body, so surly it's time for repairs ? Peter
  • If Olympus could make C-AF Tr work as intended you would not need to keep the AF Target point pattern on the bird. With Tr, once the camera has a lock on your subject it would use all 121 points ...
  • Replied in No
    I just tried this with mine and there was no way I could induce any problems by simultaneous press of grip & body buttons If I had this problem the camera would be straight back to Olympus for ...
  • Terrific shot Richard. I realize that this one is from your archives, but we see few shots with that lens these days - thanks for posting it. Having had the 300mm for several years now I dont ...
  • That's a great shot Brad. The few night heron I've photographed here in Australia have all been very skittish. Peter
  • Very nice work Lars. I really like your take of the Wheatear. The wide composition with the rock and wildflowers works very well. Peter
  • Replied in Mistletoebird
    Outstanding takes Dennis - beautiful bird and one I've not yet captured. Looks like perfect light. Peter
  • Lately I've been practicing with my 5D3 and Sigma 50-500mm OS lens to regain familiarity with this combo in prep for an Africa trip coming up. here are some very close shots of a pair of Sulfur-cre ...
  • Replied in Woman in red
    irrelevant to to a 20-year old Internet, and the laws in some countries already make it illegal to publish such images without the subject's approval. Some countries seems to lag behind extreme ...
  • Replied in Woman in red
    so visiting a psychiatrist or going to an AA meeting is "stupid stuff". My oh my you must live in fantasy land. What about the ex husband discovering the location of the ex wife, or the ID of her ...
