Re: Sony Alpha A99 Field Test Report

But it is having an impact on Canon and Nikon - FF users are switching to their systems from Sony to get an OVF. I don't think that's right. I think folks (like me) are just sitting on their A900's and A850s. For me, it's not the EVF that's causing me to sit tight, it's the fact that there's no rea...

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

My best guess is the blue patchiness in the image above is due to the focal length of the lens, and the angle of the sun in the sky. Given the shadows in the photo, the darkest patches are almost 90 deg from the sun, and that's where you'll see the strongest effect of a CPL in the sky.

Re: ZOOM!

The shutter was trigger by remote inside the vehicle while I was driving. The trick is to go REALLY slowly. I would take about 5-10 shots at a time, and then chimp and re-compose. http://www.landshapephotography.com/img/s8/v9/p548069783.jpg When you are done, you get a bunch of shots that look like ...

Re: ZOOM!

In my rig I already attached the u arm and tripod/ballhead mount. It's simple enough to borrow the pipe bender at your home improvement store when you are there. Here's what that piece looks like (it was a nice U shape when I left the store, but a run-in with the pavement reworked it for me. Scared ...

Re: ZOOM!

So lot's of folks on other forums wanted to know how I pulled these shots off. I put about $100 into this MPC project, about about 10-20 hours work of work to get those two shots. Google is your friend and I found lots of setups for lots of money. Some rigs cost upwards of $1K. I knew that was kinda...
