Re: Future of A mount

Not sure if this helps but the only good third party cell I've used is the 2-Power NP400 I bought it from Duracell direct years ago, it's working like a champ and easily as good as the originals. Still going strong I tried many others Patona (didn't last long) and some from China/eBay again they ju...

Re: Future of A mount

I like the grip for the 7D, because it has an adapter for 6-AA batteries. I know the batteries add more weight and it's inconvenient, but it's impossible to find the OEM batteries and the after-market batteries, like those from Watson, don't last long enough. Now, I have a charger, that will recharg...

Re: Recent flower photos

Very nice image. I like it. I think Rorschach or a Picasso of photography. I feel, that macro photography is a tool of abstract art.

Re: Snowy Day in Southern California

Well actually, the third photo was shot earlier. The snow covers more of the hills and the mountain. The perspective is much different, as the entire mountain is the backdrop, with less debt of field and without sky. Snow melts very quickly here even in the winter. There was also a lot of haze from ...

ValeryD: "filter out" what shouldn't be posted? Please explain. I'm against filtering out anything, political or otherwise, c*nsorsh*p - gotcha! included. Who determines what images are permissible? Who is the posting Tsar? Does Zucker or Dorsey run this site?

Snowy Day in Southern California

Snow quickly melts with the rain. I shot with a Sony 7iii and a Sony SAL 24-105 and LA-EA4 lens adapter.

Re: A300 - very good camera.

Yes, you captured very nice images. You must have so many opportunities for good shots in winter times. I like the snow, except for driving in it. I have a 14 MP, Sony A350, with a SAL 55-200 lens. I like telephoto lenses best. I keep batteries always charged on the cameras in my collection, althoug...

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.
