  • Perhaps it was this: http://lrtimelapse.com/ Or, some video editing software might have the tools to motion-blur selected areas.  I remember David Newman (spelling?), the former CTO for Cineform ...
  • Look here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58228285
  • Sounds like a fantastic trip you have planned, will have  so many photographic opportunities! The consensus here for Olympus OMDs is that the lens OIS is preferred, except in the case of when you ...
  • Replied in night apes?
    "Nightscapes", not "Night Apes". Danged iPhone autocorrect!
  • Ahh, I think you have a Panny body, thus more focus on the Panny lenses? So, it seems to me you might appreciate one bright lens, if including for people then perhaps the 15mm f/1.7, you would be ...
  • Welcome! My good time with this lens will be coming up starting in a few weeks, as the weather becomes more friendly to my current health situation. Although I have a few primes which I use on ...
  • When l first learned about Tether Tool (about a year ago) they had just announced support for the Olympus BLN-1 battery cameras, but they weren't yet available for many months, so I sort of lost ...
  • Although I have the latest Anker fast charging power bank 10,600, I ordered 2 of the standard Omnicharges about 2 months when they still had the early bird pricing @ $89. The features most ...
  • Not all sensor pixels are created equal, some will be noisier than others, and some regions (more than one pixel) may be similarly noisier than others. The higher the sensor temperature (and they ...
  • How large are these red spots?  Like big blobs a few mm in diameter, or more like display pixel-size? If the latter, since it's with no light hitting the sensor which is in the dark, and on both ...
  • (1) Even more impressive after seeing the photos of your setup! Outstanding, thank you so much for sharing these with us! Come to think of ...
  • Replied in exactly this
    This exactly what is happening.  There are physical limits as to how far in one direction the OIS can move to compensate for the lens motion, or, in the case of the IBIS, the body motion; when the ...
  • NP, though I was actually recommending the next smaller Mefoto Roadtrip (in my first reply), as it was literally my example of the lightest tripod + head in your price range which I would consider ...
  • Thanks, Jeff.  I understand. When the nights turn a bit cooler and drier, I may try my 100-400mm/ EM5ii on my Polarie tracker, perhaps with my Polarie polar scope I can get a good enough alignment ...
  • Jeff, What star tracker are you using, and what is a "Denb"? Or, is your camera mounted to a full telescope rig?
  • Thanks much, Jeff! I don't like the stock hood, either, and I have been using a smaller version of this B+W hood on my 17mm f/1.8. Just placed my order, along with the f64 lens case which you also ...
  • Jeff, Is this the lens hood model you are using on your 100-400mm? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/11157-REG Cheers
  • Here is the travel tripod review I was thinking of.  It includes the next larger Mefoto tripod Globe Trotter (up from the Roadtrip) and it's the more expensive carbon fiber model, but this review ...
  • Tony, Please see my replies to some of yours below, but first just a couple of suggestions... Suggest that you read all of the excellent reviews on tripods and ball heads which Mark Banas has ...
  • Replied in it is with m43
    So very well said, Sean! The so-called "equivalency" point of view as it is usually presented here is rather presumptuous and self-centered to begin with. Heck, I started my serious photography ...
