  • Remember that you have Clear Image Zoom , which is quite clever at adding pixels in more or less the right place. It gives up to twice the zoom power if you want to minimize pp. I was dubious about ...
  • Love the photo. And nobody ever asked Michelangelo about his brush sizes.😀 Regards, Bob
  • I had hopes that the WiFi on the a6000 would be better than it is on my Nex5R. It isn’t. The best way is still the simplest. Take the card to the computer.😀 Regards, Bob
  • Don’t feed the trolls and they will stay under the rickety rackety bridge...😀 Regards, Bob
  • Sorry, damn spellchecker kept changing it to X-ray. It’s a Ricoh XR-1s.😀 Regards, Bob
  • But the trick is to get it to focus on what you wish it to focus on. The fun is to put it on the business end of a a6000😀 I do have a Ricoh XRS-1 bought new in 1978 so the lens has a place to ...
  • ...and a bunch of smaller digital Leicas are gussied up Panasonic’s.😀
  • I have the Ricoh AF that you mention. Other people always find it amusing. I just have fun playing with it. Gotta wonder why they bothered with the battery powered bit on a decent lens.😀 Regards, Bob
  • You might also want to set the drive mode to continuous shooting rather than single shot. The a6000 can take up to 11 frames per second or thereabouts. Regards and have fun, Bob
  • Try this one. AF is, shall we say, a bit awkward...and noisy. Regards, Bob This is the camera it was actually designed for.  The Rikenon lens is really quite good. It has just got this awful ...
  • I’m guessing it’s not a Brownie 127...😀
  • I just remember that my camera had two settings - slow shutter click and slightly quicker shutter click. I guess it wasn’t an SLR...😀 Regards, Bob
  • It was just being out on the apron and right next to the old Concorde stuck up on its stick. Didn’ t even get my camera out, just my phone.😀 Regards, Bob
  • A couple of years ago we were going up the stairs to the Air Transat plane at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. We were right beside the Concorde on a stick so I raised my phone to take a photo. ...
  • Yes, they are cropped quite a bit. Otherwise just popped the colour a little. Always seems to be a lot of noise on my aeroplane pics. I’ve put it down to the fact that metering for dark aircraft is ...

    I am so glad you enjoyed Toronto. We live near the old Distillery district, where the Christmas market is. It’s a great city for wandering about...and living downtown. Regards, Bob

    Squirrels are just Rats that have furry tails. They are even more numerous than Raccoons here. Toronto is built on a series of ravines, so even right downtown the wildlife is huge. if you put in ...

    Possums have made it to downtown Toronto in the last couple of years. Presumably hitched a ride from our southern neighbor. They are no problem at all. But we are the Raccoon capital of North ...
  • Wascally Wabbits... 😀
  • I have owned this lens since 2011 and I still like it a lot.  It is built to a price.  When I got it the only alternative was the 18-200 Beercan which cost almost $1,000 CDN. It's not the sharpest ...
