Stephen McDonald's recent activity

  • Really good little bit of entertainment. That music has a nice beat. I was hoping it would last longer. There are also a number of Australian shelducks in the picture.
  • Bear in mind that "refurbished" doesn't always mean that the camera is used. If Quality Control finds a flaw, it may be run through the assembly process again to correct it and then, they're ...
  • To extend an RCA cable, you can use a small connector that has two female ends and is commonly known as a "barrel". One of those and two cables will give you what you need. However, if a digital ...
  • Created discussion thread Strawberry Moon Peers Through Clouds
    I was pleased to get a 250,00-mile depth-of-focus with the moon and the fir trees.
  • That is a dazzling bird. Nice capture.
  • Those differences in Coolpix models may seem small to those who haven't used them extensively, but those who have taken several thousand shots with many of them see those  differences as quite ...
  • My solution to stuck filters that won't come off any other way, is this: I take a very fine-toothed hacksaw blade and cut two notches in the filter rim, 180 degrees apart and no more than 2mm ...
  • That's a pretty good portrait for someone who was afflicted with buck fever. Out west we would call this a forked-horn (2-point). Only the points on one side are considered and the short tines ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • Wonderful, sharp pictures, but the last time I heard, the P950 doesn't float.
  • Replied in P1000 Mantis
    Really nice portrait of this fascinating insect. They pose a  deadly danger to any other insect, as they are the top predator among them. One spring, I found thousands of them in a grassy field on ...
  • The image looks large enough. It can be expected that such a subject would be farther away than many others. But one thing you can do is to shoot 4K video and later extract still images from it. ...
  • Replied in Agreed
    And the obvious thing is, that if you move too close and violate a bird's safe-space, then it will move and the photo-op will be ended. This is especially true with video, as apprehension on the ...
  • Very nice images. Who would have thought, years ago, that these birds would become urban predators?
  • Nice sequence. It's amazing that mom has that much room in her pouch. It's probably about time she was giving the youngster an eviction notice.
  • You can't post videos here, but you can post links to them on other hosting sites, such as Flickr.
  • Nice shot of that surprisingly colorful bird. I hope your money for repairs results in having the camera keep working for a long time. I bought a 4-year extended warranty on mine, which I always ...
  • Time to get out your best old camera.
  • Some cameras have what is called a "full-sensor readout" and most of the pixels are used, to produce a 4K image. A Sony RX10-4 is an example, but they are usually the more expensive models. My ...
  • I spent 6 months in deciding to get the P950. It's a newer model and so the firmware is at least a bit advanced. It focuses faster and the image stabilization works a little quicker. The 2000mm ...
