    I was a sports shooter and went on a Nikon Café annual shoot in Florida called MI5 (MI=Merrit Island) run by Harry B and I was hooked the day we went to Viera. This was approx 2006

    thanks Ron thanks Andreas....I ended up with > 100 keepers out of 300 and I ended up walking away leaving all 3 still fooling around. When I left I was surrounded by photographers, it was hard to get up

    we have an area dedicated to cleaning everything, we even wash the fruit and vegies in soap and water it's hard to tell on the prices but I'm pretty sure the big stores don't go up during a crisis

    Anybody try this for delivered groceries ? We started 2 weeks ago and it's very impressive. There alot of things not on the shelf but the shopper works with you, via text, to find good substitutions on some things. For $99 a year delivery is free. Note they do mark some stuff up a little. I'm...

    ?: D810 for sports in 2020?

    I'm 68 I used to shoot a D3/D4/D5 + 400/2.8 and a D800 + 70-200 on a black rapid strap now I shoot D5 + 400e. 2 bodies is way too much work and so is flipping from a zoom to a long prime...... shooting just a long prime for so many years changes the way you see the game. You definitely miss a...

    ?: D810 for sports in 2020?

    ?: D810 for sports in 2020?

    for day games the D500 is a good choice and maybe a 70-200 2.8 2.8 is critical for backgrounds. another good choice is the Sigma 120-300 2.8 for high school games at night the D500 is not a good choice....high ISO (like 8k) does not look good (to my eye). You can process each picture thru some...

    thanks Tony....the biggest thing to remember is once you start feeding them never stop, not even for a few days. And keep the perches above the feeders, they like to stop on the way to lunch

    My Backyard Birds

    thanks Bob. You can't really tell the difference at these sizes but the D850 is noticeably better at details, The D5 is way better at AF and high ISO. The D6 will be even better at AF and high ISO but it will still get bested by the D850 in details. The problem is most places we shoot you can't...
