Re: Snow Monkeys at Jigokudani, Japan

Beautiful captures of the human-like emotions, in the faces of the monkeys.

Re: Wow I never thought I'd see a lens..

I haven't had much concern about having so-called fast lenses. I usually do handheld shots. I don't care to carry around a heavy tripod. The few f2.8 lenses that I own are soft at full aperture. I work around with the f3.5-5.6 lenses. I just bought a Sony a7iii. I don't own any FE full frame lenses....

Re: Fast AF Telephoto lens suggestions?

I have a nice selection of A-mount cameras and lenses. I'm not like the Invicta watch collectors. I don't have any of the long tele lenses that you mention in your posts, except for the Tamron 70-300 f4-5.6, which I value, but wish it was much lighter. I use it with the a65. I also have original Min...

Re: "Apple Fire"

Yes, it is a scary situation. According to the news, law enforcement arrested 4 teens and a man with a gas can for starting the fires. Aircraft with fire retardant or water are flying over my home. It's 102 F outside, so it's not a picnic fighting the fires.

"Apple Fire"

The "Apple Fire" is currently ongoing in Cherry Valley, California. I took these shots from my home, with a Sony a 6500 and Sony 18-105 f4 lens. I processed the RAW files with DxO 3.3 and NIK HDR. Evacuations are ongoing in the affected areas.

This image was shot with a Sony a580 and Tamron 60mm Macro. I used a Metz 15-3 macro flash to compensate for the wind.

Re: Sony A99M2 + Tamron 60f2 + Zerene Stacker

Sury: I love your shots. I like the stacking feature. I also have problems with misalignment especially with handheld shot with a macro lens. When I don't use a tripod, as I don't always carry a tripod with me, I have problems. It's usually windy here in the mountains. Wind-free days are a luxury. I...

Re: A77II ramblings and thoughts

Oh yes, I have a Sony Memory Stick Pro HG Duo USB adapter for images from my Sony A-mount cameras. It's good that you can still find new Sony HG Duo memory sticks at Amazon online. I know, it's old school. ;)

Re: A77II ramblings and thoughts

I do it old school. I attach a 3.0 USB adapter to my Samsung tablet; insert the SD card from a camera into the adapter; then transfer selected images to MS OneDrive on my tablet; then I can get those images at my convenience, on any of my computers or devices, that includes my Blackberry KeyOne smar...

Re: DC by Night

The "Art of Photography" has a video on layering in Capture One. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vm2m2F-vevg

I think that layering will replace your need for dodging and burning tool.

Re: 3 Alphas at once

I only see camera phones out there. I maybe the only one around here with still working A-mount cameras. Yes, I still have a working A350. Yesterday, the pop-up flash capacitor in the A580 gave up the flash, but it still works with external flashes. The A-mount, just slowly dies. My KM 7D lives on. ...

Re: Where's David?

Oh, I just read, under another Topic, about the passing of David's wife, Shirley. I'm so sorry. I was just thinking about David these past days. Now, this untimely Passing of his wife happens. I guess, I would have known about it, if I read other forums. I'm so sorry.
