To learn how to use my 40D.

  • Very cool.
  • Nice.  Where did you shoot that fox?  I'd love to get a shot of one but in all the years I've spent in the woods hunting and fishing, I've only seen a handful and usually just at dark.
  • I also sold to KEH recently. They had a very user friendly, online system for getting a quote, sent me a prepaid shipping label, and sent me a check that was within a couple of dollars of the ...
  • Another reason they might be more expensive is they have to pay for a ton of red ink in the marketing department.  That stuff ain't cheap.   :-D
  • Replied in Check this out
    That's very interesting!  Now that you mention it, I don't see any wood chips flying in that picture, so it makes me think that pic was taken after I'd hit the bottom of the cut and was bringing ...
  • Replied in Check this out
    I'm guessing the difference has to do with the fact that the part of the chain on the bottom of the bar is under tension since it's doing the cutting.  There is always some slack in the chain so ...
  • Created discussion thread Check this out
    Yesterday I was doing some tree work in the back yard and I thought I'd see if I could get an interesting picture of the process.  The first picture below is one of the shots I took, the second ...

  • How long did it take for your 4% to post to your account?  I bought some stuff a few weeks ago and mine still isn't available.
  • Very helpful.  Thank you.
  • Ha!  That's crazy.  I see what you're talking about with the cursor.  In the actual pic though you can see the 1/1000 listed in the exposure detail. I have no idea where the 1/10,000 is coming from ...
  • Replied in Kit Lens
    That is advice you can take to the bank. Someone gave me a similar version years ago and I was able to get a LOT out of my kit lenses. Once I found situations the old gear couldn't handle I had a ...
  • That's really cool, and not at all what I was expecting.  Nice shot.
  • I actually checked's set on "evaluative".  However, when I took the initial reading the bird was on the branch in the shade.  I imagine it kept the initial metering even as the bird flew ...
  • Gerry, Thank you for a very detailed was very educational and I'll be referring back to it in the future. Thanks to all for the responses. I had the CPL on because I'd been out in ...
  • Created discussion thread Does this ISO seem too high?
    I was at the lake today taking a new camera for a test drive.  It was a very sunny day, but when I was to the side of the river there was some shade. I was using an f/2.8 aperture with a 1/1000 ...
