Love the "Say aaaaaaa" pic. How did you manage to get it to say "aaa"?

Hi rpt, the fish, (monkfish) was caught by the top of his head, by the weight of their mandibular the mouth remains open.
Ah! Thanks.

On a monster road trip this summer, we stopped by Yellowstone and experienced one of the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen:

Beautiful   ! But where's Yogi Bear ?

Lenses / Re: Canon Extender 1.4ii or iii?
« on: October 30, 2013, 10:47:49 PM »
Hi - Long time follower of the forums - first post.

I know there are so many discussions about the two canon 1.4 extenders - but most seem to relate to longer lenses -  I can't seem to find an answer to this - I have a 5D3 and 70-200f4IS and really want to know if its worth using an extender on this combo or just cropping the pictures to get a better result.

and if so - would the version iii be much better with this combo and worth the extra $$?

Many thanks

I got the III version. Mainly because I wanted to extend my 100-400 to 560. If you are planning to get a longer lens don't buy the extender. The III is supposed to be better but I did not try them out before purchasing so I can't vouch for that.

Hi Richard, I mentioned previously having some DIF (Dragonfly in flight) images, here's one... I couldn't remember where I filed them!  I've recently moved and don't have my external drives set up yet, so some images I've put on my internal HD, totally forgotten! 

Anyway, I'll post others as I get a chance!

This is right after getting my 100-400mm back from Canon, very pleased with the results from Canon.  I had to set my MFA settings back to zero!  That was surprising...

EF 100-400mm

Neat shot!

I'm still on the firmware that came with the camera.  Is it worth upgrading to this?  Do I have to do it by step or can I jump from this to the latest in one go?
You can jump straight to 1.2.3.

J.R., IslanderMV, nice captures!

And last one, this was when they first came right up to us.

Again, shot with the 24-70f/2.8 II at 24mm
If you have LR5 you could try to "straighten" the slant of the elephants on either end. I know it works with verticals and horizontals for buildings.

Great pics and I am sure it was a great experience. The only charge I have experienced is a stampede of Gaur (Indian bison) in a forest reserve called Tadoba in Central India. We stood behind trees and waited for the herd to pass. When they did, we thanked the stars we were still alive and headed straight to the forest rest house :)

Seeing things that weigh about 800 kg (1750 lb) whizz by around 5 feet from you is unnerving.

Thanks! You made my morning! I loved the F16, F22 joke. So I guess nobody would like to fly a F35 ;)

Looks like you had to revert it today too :(

While browsing I got the new top menu and then some error. Did not pay attention to it and hit refresh. That gave me a "stream error" so I waited for 5 minutes and tried again and I see the old interface back...

Thank you lion rock, rpt, Dustin and Click. I appreciate the kind comments.
I am on crutches following an argument with a horse - so am relying on good photo opportunities coming to me at the moment... this one was taken from my back door.
Oh dear! Here's to getting back to a hundred percent soon. :)

Here shots of a Long-tailed Tit and Northern Wheatear ( Powershot SX50)


Very nice shots Hans.

+1...I like them a lot. :)

Cool shots!  The whole '*Tit' family seems very flighty and usually difficult to get good still shots.  And they're tiny.

Nice catch, Eldar! 

amoore00357, makes me want to visit one of our local places just for some owl closeups.

dslrdummy, really like the shot of the Saddle-Billed Stork. 

lw, COOL!  I imagine any scratches on the lens would be worth it from the story "Well, an owl perched on my lens.."

Mr. Bean, I know we all try doing that, lol.  Most of us just don't succeed.  Nice!

arbitage, always appreciate good eagle shots.  We finally have a small established population(6) here in San Diego County but predicting which lake they will be at from day to day is difficult.

Guess I should respond to posts more often.  Last night after I left work, I stopped by the river to see what might have migrated in for the day.  After the sun set, a puffy Eared Grebe decided to come check out the new 'tree'.  Had to wait until the water turned back to glass but kind of like the shot.  1/25 : f/5.6 : ISO1250  800mm on a 5D MK III.

Lovely picture.

Focus peaking is awesome, but this feature really needs a state of the art EVF to be truly useful.
In the first alpha it was shown in live view. I wanted it for video...
