    Colored Cameras - do you own one?

    I have a blue G1. Color of a camera is a personal thing I guess. My old FZ50 is silver.

    Eeeeekkk , it's a snake

    Generally, the only snakes around here are chicken snakes, which are OK. The water moccasins, are shown no mercy. At least seven of them met their end when I had my pond cleaned out with a track hoe. Rattlers receive little sympathy here too.

    sony slt range of cameras

    I love my A33. It is soon to be replaced by the A35 since they quit making the A33. You can pick up the A33 with the 18-55 for 700 bucks now too since they are clearing out the inventory. Plus the A77 24Mp camera will be out someday. I have the 18-250 Tamron on mine and you can get a real deal...

    G1 with 45-200 images

    I took these at our ranch. I got the old G1 out and the old cam still takes some nice sharp pics. Just have to get used to the slower auto focus. Many of these were manual focus and shot in RAW. There is a hawk of some kind sitting on the backyard fence, a series of images of a squabble...

    Opinions Please -- is this as good as it gets?

    The new SLT-A35 should be even better than the A33.

    A SLT-A55 and 18-250 lens would solve your problem.:biggrin:

    Show "Motorcycles"

    My wife and I went on a motorcycle rally a few years ago and I took this picture. The two guys on the right are trying to figure out what the heck Honda was thinking when they made the CBX. I could hear them and one was saying what the heck is that? <iframe title="YouTube video player"...

    Buy camera online?

    I have ordered at least three different cameras from Amazon and they are a good place to buy from. I even returned two other cameras that I was not happy with and they refunded all of my money.

    Hello from Austin

    Glad to see you here Charles. I used to live down in Dripping Springs close to the Salt Lick BBQ joint out in the country. I know you have lots of opportunities for interesting shots down there in Austin.:smile:

    How to see photographically

    I always keep the rule of thirds in mind when taking a photo. It's true that a super sharp well exposed photograph that has an uninteresting composition is not as good as a slightly off image that has a great interesting composition.

    Lens Hoods

    I bought a lens hood for my kit 18-55 Sony lens on ebay for about eight dollars shipped. Sony wanted 18 dollars plus shipping for the little hood which can't be worth much, but I wanted it for the protection it offers. There are many clones of the factory lens hoods and much cheaper to boot.

    [EXPIRED] WTB: Cheap P&S camera

    The Elephant in the Room - Automated Change

    As they shrink the electronics even more and cram faster processors into these cams, I can see a day when they will be fully automatic. You will tell the camera the effect you want and it will do it. I generally shoot at least one auto shot and then I use my settings. About half the time, the...

    Some images of a baby longhorn taken with A33

    Sorry, the only cameras I have used are in my sig. I have a G1. I'm not running the G1 down, but the contrast auto focus just flat out can't compete with the phase detection at least in the SLT cameras in regards to speed and accuracy. Some of the female longhorns have the most spectacular...

    Some images of a baby longhorn taken with A33

    Yes, she acted like she might go medieval on me if I got too close to the baby. She has horns and knows how to use them when the horses get too close. Longhorns can get psycho on you if you don't hand feed them every once in a while. So I've fed her regularly so she's pretty docile. I don't want...

    Some images of a baby longhorn taken with A33

    We bought this longhorn cow back in June. The friend of mine I bought her from said he thought she was pregnant and that's really why I bought her. As time went on, I never thought she was pregnant since she did not show it. But several people told me they don't show it much and I guess they...

    GH2 Continuous AF mode

    Even the super fast focus A33 and A55 are derided as far as BIF. Even with the auto review turned off, the screen freezes for an instant for every shot so you have to lead the bird and hope for the best. I guess you could adopt the popular red dot sight hack many use on the point and shoot...

    Are you looking forward to the Sony A77?

    I'm not sure how they can overcome the overheating problem since from what I've read, it's due to the sensor shift stabilization. Panasonic sidesteps a lot of that issue because their stabilizer is lens based. I've read the GH1 has a big heatsink on the sensor so maybe Sony can put a bigger sink...

    Are you looking forward to the Sony A77?

    Should be interesting when it gets released. All those people that are so fearful of an EVF and insist on a OVF will run away screaming bloody murder. Just some humor there as an OVF is useful for low light and in some other instances. If all the rumors are true like a 24Mp APS-C sensor...
