Wonderful shots from everyone but the last two moon shots from Oldgear are just stunning.
Jim, thankyou, but everyones shot is beautifull and a joy to admire.
The moonshots where rather easy, just wait for full moon and clouds.
I rate the 'like' for every image pleasing me, so far, all image I have the priviledge to see, got the 'like'...
This thread is rich and extraordinary.
The TO had a verrry good idea, to start this thread!
.. Of course this camera (like any) is not for everybody
You are very right. This little body demands a deeper/higher learning couve, higher than a usual dslr.
Something between dead easy and sometimes hard to tame..
I guess, and that makes me *happy* in a way,
Does the relatively large auto focus box in live view seem limiting?
Deal with The to be taken image can bee zoomed, that helps a little
othersides, the use of 'face detection', even for non human objects, turn into a adaptive in size focus box.
Only in modest way, but this can help
Well, in liveView mode offered for example in the 5ds or 7ds runs well for 'above 5.6' lens combination.
with F22 (F5.6 from the bare lens + 2x converter plus another 2x converter)
I was never able, to aquire AF by lifeview.
Just a set of testshots, please 'include' those shots have been made on a hot day, over the water,
air turbulences are very well degrading the images, anyway, only AF testshots.
Sitting in my country, the river is the boarder, the other side is france.
A few french people enjoyed the public beach life,
used lens, the EF 400L. 5.6
the bare lens, native F 5.6
Single flexi AF was set
the 2xIII extender used (total F11 open)
slower than with the bare lens but still 'usable'
1600mm (total of F22 open)
the 2xIII extender used plus a oem, lowcost 2x converter added
even more slow, but could find a target and complete the job
Not very sharp due the cirtumstances, but just for giving an idea...
(at home, viewing the image in 'big', I can read the title of the newspaper 'l'alsace', read the wetherforcast for Europe, there is a picture and something written about the leader from the tour the france.
Perhaps, on an image friendly day, it could be possible to read more,
from the newspaper, located in an other country...
the money saved can be putted to glass)
