Paul Stricklin's recent activity

  • Just purchased a refurbished 18-150 even though I have 18-55 and 55-200. I have been using my 11-22 a lot but find it a little short and the 55-200 too long for most of my shots. I will see how ...
  • There are many threads on this site discussing the delay between getting an indication of focus on the LCD and the flash actually firing.  An off center focus is necessary when a single point ...
  • A focus point on the head is too far above desired composition.  A chest spot is so lacking in contrast or clear straight edge that focus can not be achieved. When shooting meet n greets (70 to ...
  • In low light you need a clear edge line for auto focus.  I have had to modify how I shoot in clubs with poor or unsteady lighting.  Start at the subjects head where lighting produce a clearly ...
  • Replied in Color of M5...
    After reading the comments I realized I have never directly compared the M5 lcd display with the either of my computer displays for any hundreds of images taken in clubs let alone checking against ...
  • Comparing the bare tree limbs, shows a different crop line in the right image. almost half the limb is not shown. Doesn't mean a whole lot, except the framing isn't laid out the same on the image...

  • I find it interesting that current discussions do not count the unprinted paper as an additional color due to dot size and spacing variations.  I have a copy of Print by Epson which took care to ...
  • Yes, some image groupings go naturally with a snug 4x5 frame and look unbalanced in 4x6.  Wide open spaces are always a challenge selecting the visual balance between for ground, visual ...
  • Created for sale thread For Sale Canon M3 with two lens
    Canon M3 with 18-55 and 55-200 lens with EVF-DC1, 8 gig Transend memory Kit $500.00. Near new condition due to early arrival M5. Paul Stricklin kactuspt@comcast.net
  • Keep the gear bagged tightly until everything warms up.  Travel time from room to location should be plenty of time. Paul Stricklin
  • Replied in Confusing...
    M5 displays a consistent focus problem in low level soft lighting with several lens other than the 22. But have only shot a few thousand such images in the last 5 months. Close enough for the ...
  • My last all in one body. Great in the club pics smoke and all. Put many thousand shots on one. Only down fall was the focus just wasn't fast enough in marginal lighting or rapidly changing...

  • The windows systems maintains a file queue of connect/disconnect on ports.  If a card is removed before the queue updating is finished the system treats that as an error.   This queue can get out ...
  • Another potential problem is the Windows rejected device list.  The operating system keeps a running list of rejected devices tucked away.  I had to research the rejected device system to find the ...
  • It is a little difficult to relate to the "very small personal spaces" With the large personal spaces that we prefer in the US.  Having lived in a Honeymoon vacation location I understand just how ...
  • I do have to admit that I have been shooting 60 years, but started using auto focus about 12 years ago.  Even then I still used the spot focus and shift to frame until 3 years ago when I got a ...
  • I am learning to modify my targeting process when shooting in low contrast conditions.  I first look for a vertical and lock focus then frame and shoot.  I am finding it very difficult to change a ...
  • I hardily agree about co-processing via video card.  With my time constraints I only process raw for special images.  Having to do a file recovery really chewed up the time.  Later today I have to ...
  • Recently had a read error with a Sony 64Gig card due to faulty security/lock switch.  in using an old program "Recover" left over from Win7.  I found 5 to 6 copies of each image, each a different ...
  • The challenge with shooting people in crowded conditions is quickly finding suitably located vertical lines.  Human heads being so non linear. I suppose we could return to the old trick of  small ...
