  • This is a bit out of my price range for this round unfortunately. I'd definitely like to get a nicer tripod in the future, but for this project I'm sticking to cheap. So far, I'm leaning for the ...
  • Thanks again for this - didn't know about these!
  • This is a great idea! I have a Joby, but I'm not sure if I'd trust my camera on it. Will give this some thought though, thanks!
  • Replied in Used Bogen?
    Thank you for the response about the elevator tripod - I didn't know about these! Some other thoughts I've had: (1) ...a 10' light stand? (2) This 75" Zomei or 75" Neewer ? Has ...
  • Created discussion thread Tallest cheapo tripod?
    I'm looking to do a large group shot (~30-ish people) this week, but I need to be in it and I'd prefer for the camera to be higher than eye level. I know the majority of tripod recommendations on ...
  • I've experienced this exact same thing. The ghosting only occurs in specific scenarios. On mine, it appears when shooting a subject with a window behind them, hair highlights - regardless of VR ...
  • Three options I'm using at the moment: 1. Snapbridge. It's a pain to setup - sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Bluetooth has worked almost never for me.  In general, it feels like a 50-50 chance ...
  • At this point, I'll probably need the reach for shooting birds / small creatures like lizards. I'm not sure how the conversation went to 500 or 600 with 2x...400mm-ish at f/5.6 should be plenty for ...
  • The Nikon 200-500 5.6 looks excellent and can now be had for $1000 refurbished, but I already own the Tamron 70-200 G2 and I'm curious how the 200-500 compares with the Tamron 70-200 G2 attached ...
  • Thanks for this thorough explanation! These are both adapted lenses - I'm assuming that doesn't matter?
  • The key lenses I wanted to go through this process with is a Sigma 50 Art and Tamron 70-200 G2. These are both notorious for always needing calibration. But I suppose not on mirrorless...
  • Per my first sentence, this is all a learning experience for me and I've just found the tutorials, videos and forum postings all pretty confusing. I've never even known  about finetuning until I ...
  • Two other things... I'm using pinpoint, AF-S, Aperture mode, set at f/2.8, ISO 100. What I don't get yet is the best camera / chart methodology to do the testing. My fine-tuning will be inputted ...
  • 1) Ok - so I only hit AF-ON in steps 1 & 2. I thought you were supposed to leave it in manual (or not refocus) when changing the fine tuning. This is not something made very clear in the videos ...
  • Created discussion thread Fine tune doesn't have affect?
    I'm trying to understand how to fine tune my lenses with a Nikon Z6. I'm currently testing a Tamron 70-200 G2. Autofocus is set to AF-ON only, so pressing the shutter in a tethered Lightroom ...
  • I've been looking into finally upping my game with some lights - all I've ever owned is a single flash and I've felt limited from using it because of a lack of any light modifiers. I'd like to do ...
  • Created question thread How to clean lens contacts
    I had to change lenses while at the beach and I'm fairly certain some blowing sand has gotten into the contacts of a specific lens. When putting the lens on a camera later, there's a clear ...
  • Created question thread Z6: Copy MOV via USB-C?
    Is there no way to copy mov files from the Z6 via USB-C? Using Lightroom CC Classic on OSX. At first, when connecting the camera before opening Lightroom, I was only able to copy JPGs. When ...
  • I've bought tons of bags over the years. Up until now my ThnkTank Urban Disguise 35 has been the perfect bag. The problem is I've gone from a Macbook Pro 13 to a Macbook Pro 15 and it's literally ...
  • Created discussion thread Tamron warranty from eBay purchase
    I'm looking into purchasing a Tamron 70-200 g2 from eBay. The seller says they purchased from B&H in 2017 and have not yet sent in the warranty card. They even sent me a picture of the unused ...
