Here's another one:


NIKON D700
50mm 1/250th F4 ISO200




I've been doing some tests and I can handhold this baby down to 1.5 seconds at 16mm. Shame it's 4x bigger than my Canon EF-s 10-22mm - I loved that lens for it's compact dimensions.

I`m disappointed that all my lenses are incompatible, they only work in manual focus, most of my auto-focus lenses are G or D type, and only AF-S, AF-I will work properly, my fault for not investigating this.

I am going out today for a walk with the dogs, and lugging my camera along, with the kit lens .

So hopefully I`ll have a few sample shots later.

I`m very happy that my old flash works, and that i can attach my BR-2A, so reverse lens photography works ok, the main reason i have the thing ...

OK, OK.. Now that all three 'new' (well, 2 new, 1 new to me ) boxes have arrived I figured I'd drop a shot in here.. The 60D and 17-70 have been here for a couple weeks to play with, but I just got the 10-20 last week.
Now if only the weather (and health of the kids, darned cold season) would improve so I can go out and shoot some more

I'm sick of following my dreams, from now on I'll just ask where they're going and hook up with them later. .

Negative. From around 11mm-12mm You will see vignette at corners, between 12-13 VERY VERY LITTLE almost not noticeable. After that its fine. I didn't want to pay for the 16-35 f2.8 II as its almost 1600.00 now with Canon's price increases. I'm saving that money for a 24L 1.4 II for my weddings. I really only need this as a 14mm F2.8 Prime. If I work the vignette good, I can stick with 11mm as well.

That bites! I forgot about them not having the in-body motor, stupid on Nikon's part really. For some reason I thought they changed that in the newer ones, guess not. Glad it still works out for you though. . Something tells me you can do fine with MF anyways, lol.

Actually it's more like accepting the reality of the advancements in technology and giving up on the mechanical cranking of the elements, sort of like automobiles that gave up on being cranked to be started once the electric starter motor was invented.

Canon EOS-1D Mark II
37mm 1/200th F5 ISO1000

Picked up a JVC/Focus Enhancements DR-HD100 direct to edit digital video recorder for my JVC GY-HD200. It’s a nice little unit weighing in at only a pound which when connected to the camcorder through the Firewire port is provided with video audio and bi-lateral control of the DVR from the camcorder and allows the DVR to display its status in the camcorders viewfinder, with it’s 100 gig drive it provides 800 minutes of record time in HD.


Canon EOS-1D Mark II
40mm 1/200th F5 ISO1000



Canon EOS-1D Mark II
54mm 1/200th F5 ISO1000



A really cool feature is the DTE is it records HD in M2t which allows the clips to be dropped directly onto the timeline of the editor eliminating the lost time involved in capturing from DVC/tape or transcoding from another format. Another nice feature is the unit runs on 12/15 volts DC allowing it to be powered from the cameras 14 volt battery tap.

The only flaky part of the package was the plastic carrying case for the unit didn’t really lock the DVR tightly into place which if bumped hard could cause the unit to become unmoored from the camera, I chucked the case and fastened the unit to the battery pack with a couple strips of heavy duty 3M hook and loop fastener tape.


Canon EOS-1D Mark II
24mm 1/200th F5 ISO1000



Per an IM request.
Left to right, the first device is the HD-100 DVR, it is attached to the rear of a Anton Bauer HyTron 140 watt hour NiMH battery which is latched to the Anton Bauer Gold mount on the rear of the camcorder, attached to the side of the battery is a “red frequency” UHF wireless diversity receiver wired through a mini XLR to angle XLR cable to the camcorders “B” audio port which is mapped to the right audio channel, the wireless can be utilized with any wireless transmitter or microphone which is also marked as red, the center portion is the actual camcorder body with it’s attached color viewfinder and Fujinon zoom lens with a 16:9 hood, clamped into the microphone holder is an midrange Azden shotgun microphone wired through a angle XLR to angle XLR to the camcorders “A” audio port which is mapped to the left audio channel, the shotgun can be used for an interview in a pinch but it’s primary purpose is to provide ambiance, finally on the top of the carrying handle is an Anton Bauer 70 watt Ultra-Light to which is mounted two flip over filters one a wide angle diffusion filter for tight shots and the other a dichroic daylight filter which can be flipped underneath the wide filter to allow the light to be used a corrected daylight fill light, the Ultra Light pulls it’s power from a power tap connector the top of the Gold mount, internally the power to the power tap is controlled by the record button which switches the light on and off based on the status of the camcorder be it standby or recording, this eliminates fumbling for the power switch on the light when going into record.

Make sense.

The entire package weight about 18 pounds but the weight is really not a problem as the shoulder pad can be shifted fore and aft allowing the unit to be balanced on ones shoulder taking all of the strain of balancing the unit off of the arms.

Night into Day with Stars
My wife's new camera, the Nikon D-7000..

Costco had a good deal, and our Olympus E300 was long in the tooth.

So far, quite impressed with this inexpensive Nikon. I was going to hold out for something in a Canon 1D MkII class, but am delighted with the clarity, low noise and the long zoom range of the lens included with this kit. For a lens with compromises to achieve the 11X ratio, it's pretty darned good. The things it can't do can be fixed in Adobe RAW lens correction.

As of this writing, the D-7000 is pretty much the sweet spot for bang for the buck. Costco had this on sale last week for $1799 with this $799 lens. The stock lens normally sold is a 18-105mm. The 18-200mm made this kit attractive, as I hate to change lenses in the field and miss action, risk dirt getting into the sensor, etc.

It shoots movies too, with the accuity of about 720P in a 1080P file format. Not bad, especially for quickies and if you insist on throwing the background out of focus.

I've shot some time exposed night scenes with the built in intervalometer and it works well. The sky is blue and the stars are bright, and I can push it to look like noon day sun in RAW without posterizing or objectionable noise. 14-bit RAW is a serious contender.

For Adobe CS3 users, you will need to download their free DNG Converter, as none but the latest CS5 with a patch can read NEFs from this model. Forget the utility that comes with the D-7000. It's glacially slow. Adobe's utility can batch convert 50 images by the time Nikon's software converts just one. Then you can import them into RAW and tweak to your heart's content. I'm amazed at how far you can push exposure on the RAW images from the D-7000.

It's only been 2 days, so there's a lot to discover, but so far, I'm quite surpised by this little camera. We're thinking about the SB900 Speed Flash as an important option for this camera. The built in flash is okay, but can't do bounce and the longer lens shadows the flash.

It's a magnesium alloy body, so the weight is light and even the wife does't complain. She's finally happy to have a camera that can take pictures as rapidly as she can compose them.

Picked up a new (to me) body and lens this afternoon. The wife has decided that she wants to use our other DSLR (XTi/400D) more so we went shopping for a used camera. Came home with a 30D and a lens.


Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi
125mm 1/25th F8 ISO1600

30D & EF 28-80


It's in great condition and looks like it was barely used. I would have liked to gone with something newer, but it wasn't in the budget. The body will likely be my camera and she'll get the XTi. It's a small downgrade in some respects (less pixels, but that's ok) but the other features outweigh that. Feels better in my large hands than the XTi does.

The lens will be hers since we also already have a 28-135 that I use as my normal walk around.

What's the mono pod for? The reason I ask is many people buy mono pods, but don't really need them.

That's a sweet camera you got. Played around with it a little last week

Just got the SB700 flash for my Nikon D7000. Wow, great improvement over five years ago! Power it on, it's ready without any waiting for capacitors to charge up. Bright as heck, and can keep up with my camera shooting in Continuous mode. Comes with diffusor, and several colored filters to match various light sources.
So far, very pleased with this flash unit.

The "Nifty Two-Fifty" is a beast. No, it's not the fastest. No, it's not the sharpest, but the quality per dollar is fantastic.

Congrats on your purchase!

Not used to dealing with lens hoods on a non-USM lens. Going to take a bit more care when using this rather than a quick twist-on and twist-off.
