    What's your weather?

    Hot, windy, lightnings, no rain...Tasmania is burning :crying: We are lucky on the Tasman Peninsula so far (except the only road in/out is closed atm due to a new fire...) but the rest of the state is not so lucky. Uncontrolled fires all over the state, hundreds are evacuated, many thousands of...

    I've never heard of an orange crested polychromador so I *assume* you mean "my" bird (and @gnarlydog australia 's Berta) It's a laughing kookaburra, Dacelo novaeguineae

    He is quite amazing. He is so comfortable around here and often comes and just sit with us. Sometimes on the lap, sometimes on the head :laugh1: He does enjoy a little scratch on the neck.He obviously knows there *might* be a little something for him. He is a great dad though and most of the...

    Oh how I hate photos of myself (I don't even look like myself anymore :rolleyes:) but Tucho is too cute to ignore. He lives with his family in a tree a couple of hundreds meters away. He is always hungry.

    Your favorite photography related YouTube channels?

    I think I have a new favorite. I have learned not to eat or drink while watching because it will end up sprayed on the screen and keyboard. Both his and mine... Landscape photographer Gavin Hardcastle, a Yorkshire man living in Canada. Here is his latest vid (with Adam Gibbs again)

    Replacing UWA zoom with UWA prime

    I'm a zoom-person but for me, the Laowa 7.5 is a no-brainer if you want super wide, small and fast. I love the size and sharpness and, well, everything really :cloud-9-039:

    I usually don't have the patient nor the technique to shoot birds properly. If the opportunity comes around I fire off a few. But one day I brought along the 75-300 with the intention to practice a little. Here are some of the results. They are all along the Cape Hauy track in Tasman NP New...

    From a couple of years ago in Sweden. Got up early in the morning when I heard the rain to get the laundry in and was awestruck when I looked up. I've never seen clouds like this.

    Em5 II vs EM10 II?

    Unless you shoot *lots* of verticals or very low, weird angles, swivel is a pain imo. Many other users love it but it is one of those divisive feature that will never be settled. Only you can say if it will work for you. If $200 hurts a lot, I'd say don't bother. If it doesn't hurt, go for it...

    Em5 II vs EM10 II?

    If I didn't need weather sealing (which I do), I'd go for a EM10ii. But then I *don't* like the swivel screen and haven't used/needed HiRes or stacking nearly enough as I thought I would.
