  • Both versions are very good. I purchased the non STM version used a couple of weeks back and its turned out to be a rare gem. It has remained on the camera since. It is the lens that will most ...
  • Love the bird and the plane image. I never seem to be lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time for shots like this. Nicely caught. Would make a nice pano style print about 3 feet ...
  • The photos were taken just outside Matangi, which is in the Waikato Province in New Zealand. I was on my way to do a job at a clients house about 200 meters from this point. The area is a Ready ...
  • Really like this shot. The feathers look really glossy as well. So much different to the Swallows we have here. http://akiwiretrospective.wordpress.com/ Fuji HS20EXR,S5700 Canon 1000D, EF-s 18 - 55 ...
  • Theres something about early autumn morning light thats just a bit special. Standing looking at the power lines and how they intersect and how linear the line of pylons were just said "photo Op". T ...

  • Thanks Rocket. I like the bird and gears shots enough to have them on my monitors as backgrounds, at least till something else comes along. The Fantails are exceedingly difficult to get clean shots ...
  • A couple from the Easter Sunday photo excursion we did. And one of a frequently annoying bird that likes to come into our dining room.
  • Created discussion thread Canon 1000d still going strong.
    For anyone thing of buying a cheap DSLR pre-owned .... I say go for it. I bought the 1000d for two hundred bucks with two lenses. I bought a ef-s 55-250 IS ii lens last week which arrived Easter ...
  • Created discussion thread A use for old camera straps.
    Inspired by Ken (aka the angry photographer ) and his video about making hand straps heres what I did with mine. Make your own hand strap. I'm interested especially in hearing from folks who have ...
  • If you really want to capture action and the beach etc.. and have weather sealing, thats going to limit your choices a fair amount. So long as you arent hankering for 4k video as a must have and ...
  • Replied in problem is..
    Actually I think he's more likely to get a better representative answer here, and so far appears to have done so. This is primarily a photographic gear site, secondly once you enter a specific ...
  • Lemme see... ok, passion,hobby,obsession. I have a full time job but I eat sleep and dream photography, thats why I now run a photography blog. Started out when I was 10 or 11 with a Diana camera, ...
  • I wouldn't even look at it, as others have pointed out some of the issues but the glaring one for me is the lack of Image stabilisation on the 70-300 mm lens. You wont get much in the way of ...
  • It seems to me the lens flare or flare of any kind isn't really the issue. Looking at the direction of the shadows of the trees and buildings would suggest that the sun was over your right ...
  • Although I dont own either at present, I have decided that the XE-3 would be my next Fujifilm camera. I haven't decided precisely when I will purchase but after using an EX-2 and an X-Pro 1 for a ...
  • Care to explain this then? And you will note I have used your much favoured resource. Buy Mobile Thats & 1009.00 NZD. Care to comment? So now whats the price point? As to the HUAWEI HONOR 6X as see ...
  • On the contrary, we have at times lived with very ( almost double digit ) inflation over the last 30 years or so. Thats was why the RBNZ was tasked with getting inflation into the 3 percent margin ...
