Re: Oly 50-200 ED lens hood

I should add that I know nothing about the seller or product in that link. It just turned up in a Google search.

Re: Oly 50-200 ED lens hood

I'm not sure if it is ok to post a links to a commercial Ebay site but, on the assumption that it is, would this be of interest?

Hi Tord. Since you asked here is the info for the image sizes. I will let you work out how much they are cropped. It is quite a bit.

They all started out as 5184 x 3888 raw files. Before resizing...

Re: E-M1 Mark 2 compared to Panasonic G9

That is a very interesting personal comparison Tord. Thanks for posting it. I think there is one other difference to bear in mind though - price. Looking at Camerapricebuster today, the 'standard'...

Yes sorry Mark, I got a bit carried away. I could always string them together and make a short feature film. :)

Stonechats in Autumn Sunshine

I spent quite a long time following a couple of Stonechats as they flitted about in the sunshine last week. It was hard work keeping up with them but it was worth it for the lovely light. The nice...

Black Redstart

A few shots of a female Black Redstart which I found in Lowestoft a couple of days ago. It was moving about high up on the railings at the foot of the large wind turbine, and flying up to catch...

Re: Autumn Jay

Many thanks for all your kind comments.

Iain, this Jay was in a local park, so I suppose it is used to encountering people moving about. It flew up from the ground near me and perched in a tree. I...

Re: Jammed lens hood on the f4 300mmPro

I have got a can of Silicone Spray somewhere. I use it on my curtain rails to make it easier to open and close the curtains and it works like magic.

I don't think I will use it on the 300mm lens...

Re: Field test of MC-20 + 300 F/4

Re: Jammed lens hood on the f4 300mmPro

Touch wood it hasn't happened to me yet. However I have found that it is easier to turn the hood by pinching it between my forefinger and thumb on one side and twisting it. If you hold it by both...

They look good to me Tord. Vibrant and colourful shots which capture the excitement of the occasion well. As with all your shots, excellent feather detail. ;)

Re: Posing Stonechat
