Cheetah IS....now that's something I never thought I would ever see ;D

That's it !!, Cheetah IS, and for all those Canon Knockers saying Canon are no longer being innovative, Canon have brought "Cheetah IS" to the Market first, Take that Nikon !!! & Sony to.

Here's a recent fall landscape shot with my 6D and the 24-105mm lens. I gave it an HDR treatment to bring out the colors - hopefully it's not too over-the-top!

Looks natural to me. I don't think I would have guessed HDR. Wish we had pretty fall colors like that here in Hawaii (leaves are either green or dead brown).

And here's another Barred Owl - again at a bird rehabilitation center, although a different one from my earlier shots.

Well done, Pugshot. Sharp with nice bokeh and the red berries really makes it interesting with more color.

@mackguyver:  if you want to see a great in-the-wild owl shot, check this out:

The photographer, Ed Post, has many other great bird shots, but the owl shot is incredible!


Wow! That is impressive. I wouldn't want to be a mouse in that scene.

I really admire those lucky souls who have the opportunity and stamina to trek around the world into the wild and take such amazing nature shots. I will have to be content to see it through their lens except for an occasional trip to a zoo. :)

Very nice, Dustin. Beautiful clouds and sunset. What is that bluish-green aquamarine ;) stuff in the foreground?

Hi Eldar, I like it, simple, in expensive.

There are a few products out there such as the Fly Cam, Steady Cam etc, mostly made for Video use, but also mostly entailing a hinge vest and arm arrangement.

As you mentioned, the 200-400f/4 brings a few small issues to the Party now, when hand holding it's a bit of a task operating the Zoom and Converter as well as the Camera, maybe we are looking at it from the wrong perspective.

Perhaps we should be looking at stabilising the Subject ??

LOL....Cheetah IS....now that's something I never thought I would ever see ;D

Anyone see that video of the photog butting heads with an aggressive male elk for 7 minutes in Oct 2013 in the Smokey Mountains Park? I was worried about him, but it turns out OK. Scarey :o

Here is a link to the video.

Great owl shots - are they all wild?  If so, I'm extremely impressed.  If not, they are still beautiful photos, but I will know you, too, are a mere mortal.  I love owls, but they are so freaking hard to find out in the wild!  Here's my best owl shot to date - a very noisy little Barred Owl:


Great picture mackguyver. Well done.

+1...in the wild, too ;)

« on: November 14, 2013, 03:21:44 PM »
I had Gitzo heads (still have actually, because nobody wants to buy them), but gave up. Replaced them with RRS and the only thing that irritates me is that I didnĀ“t buy the right thing in the first place.


Indeed.  I have two ballheads, a monopod head, and a gimbal head from RRS, and all are top notch.  As for RRS being conservative in their support ratings, this is their TQC-14 travel tripod, which is rated at 25 lbs.



I don't know how much RRS owner Joe (pictured above) weighs, but I'm 180 lbs and couldn't resist trying that when I got my TQC-14.  There was a little flex in the legs, but only a little (nd those legs are far less robust than those on my TVC-33).


That's pretty convincing. :)

This big boy liked to be had fed. A favorite treat was leftover biscuits.

Isn't that dangerous? Also, don't make eye contact! ;D
He was raised from a calf and was a big gentle pet for those that knew him. Unfortunately he died of a disease caused by parasites in the liver. He would come when called expecting a hand out.

Now I understand. Sorry that you lost your friend.
