  • Replied in Great choice!
    Those are the only ones that I use; 3 sizes for 6 lenses.  Helpful hint: rotate the polarizer  until you reach max. shutter speed.  (i.e. If your exposure is 1/400, rotate until you see a longer ...
  • Hi Roland, Certain that it was made by Lensmate, and it took 72mm filters.  Lead to my first B+W filter purchase.  :) Niels
  • It's not that much pain. :)  Some Nikon hoods are annoying in this way, but the Zeiss hoods come on & off easily.  Cannot comment about Pentax. Can't the warming effect be achieved by increasing ...
  • Agree w. hogdog321, and add: Removes glare from water.  2 of my 4 favorite photos were taken w. the Nikon 17-55 + B+W circular polarizer.  You have a 19mm?  This was taken w. a 17mm: https://graphi ...
  • Bright spot, in the lower left is too distracting ... better had it been cropped out.  Like it otherwise!  Thanks for sharing.
  • Had that same camera, and return it to B&H Photo, which is how I ended up with the XZ-1.  This was during pre-DSLR days, so the benchmark was the Canon G12 ... poor TG-1 was no match for it. Have a ...
  • For those of us with balance problems, regular bikes, bad.  (2' wide steel plank over a stream?  Find another way to cross, or turn around.) You mean 'recumbent'?  Have a bad feeling that my doctor ...
  • Look at the Roller Bag accessory for the Hase bikes.  That could solve the tripod problem.  Keeping the idea of purchasing a separate 4-section as a option, but prefer to use my 3-section tripod, ...
  • Thanks for the clarification Bob, Those over-the-rear-wheel racks (paniers?), look good for shaking up OJ in the morning, but camera gear?  NO!!!!  (Except for the tripod legs; RRS makes robust ...
  • Too limiting in my area: Not many off road trails for anything w. a motor. There is an abundance of bike trails in driving distance, but photogenic?  One of many unanswered questions.
  • Actually, had the DSLR for 9 months before the kayak got beach.  And had an Olympus XZ-1, specifically for use in the kayak.  But the kayak & bike (or trike) are different animals.  I EXPECT to ...
  • Good point: Was thinking I could take a mountain trike, ANYWHERE that I could hike w. a hiking pole, minus stairs & narrow paths.  WRONG!  Hill steepness & ground clearance are coalescing into ...
  • Thanks Sean, After reading BobTheArch's comments, was thinking that I would be restricted to my toughest lens (Nikon 17-55), but still use the DSLR.  Your comments that the gear can probably take ...
  • Brought this up before.  Flying drones to take pics?  Phooey!  Want a drone to carry all of camera gear.  I'll carry the hiking pole & Camelbak. Llamas spit, and leave a mess behind them. :)
  • Been thinking about this last night: Need to contact my doc & see what his opinion is. He's into biking & knows my physical abilities, from treating all of injuries over the last few decades.  :) T ...
  • Settling on a particular brand & model (and even $$$) are down the road.  (Right now, weeding out the trikes than cannot be transported to the trails.)  Bigger concerns are whether my DSLR & lens, ...
  • What grade of hill?  Add: Scaling a hill is complicated by carrying camera gear ... worse if said gear raises  the CoG. Looked up the Delta, and it's the first that I have seen with 2 wheels in the ...
  • That's what linked bag is: Shame that Tamrac stopped making that Velocity 8 bag, because: (1) Shoulder strap, that allows it swing around, and lie flush on your stomach
  • Don't look sturdy enough to be dragged through a small brook, or over rocks.  Touring, can see it, especially since these things are designed for babies ... far more precious cargo than a camera. :) ...
