    My stroke

    Thank you for letting us know Jim. That is an experience that I hope to never encounter but I will take your advice! God Speed and prayers for a full recovery.

    Another day of firsts for me. Pileated in the yard.

    Great shot Bob! I know exactly how you feel ;) The one that frequents the Bushes next to our house will alight and fly off the moment a camera and lens is pointed its way! Finally got a picture of it a few weeks ago.

    My new macro lens

    Beautiful shot! Do you think they would do the same for my pre o.s. 150 2.8 :-) Which tech do I send it to for the firmware “fix” ?????

    z6 and lightroom settings

    Use the Auto Picture Control and you can watch ACR default values for sharpening, noise reduction and saturation change with the scene and subject. Aggressive sharpening with noise reduction for many shots. As as been said before, it is easy enough to save your own defaults for Z6 / Z7 images...

    A few Osprey shots with D500 + 500mm PF

    Wow! While I have the 200-500, I am lusting after the 500 PF. Maybe for my birthday this year :-)

    How can this be driven?

    Looking again, another thought is that the Cab may be on an air suspension so that it lifts up.
  20. BillM

    How can this be driven?

    Air or hydraulic rear suspension that can vary the ride height maybe?

    Florida West Coast Reddish (White-ish?) Egret

    Wow! Stunning!

    Decided to bite the bullet on the 50 mm S lens

    The 50 S may be the best 50mm lens I have ever owned. I also have the 35 S which is another modern wonder that is in the same league with the 50. The upcoming 85 S is on my wish list.

    Critique Hmong man walking to market - hills near Sa Pa Vietnam

    Beautiful image Lew! I really like the faint outlines of the people walking ahead of the main subject and the overall soft and elegant composition.

    Pileated Woodpecker on a cloudy morning

    Thank you Karen! The 200-500 image stabilization deserves a lot of credit for this quick hand-held grab shot.

    Pileated Woodpecker on a cloudy morning

    Finally! I got a picture of a Pileated Woodpecker from our deck. Overcast and flat light, but for once the bird stuck around long enough for me to catch it in a fleeting perch on a dead branch. They normally zoom by into the brush next to the house, or alight just long enough for me to...

    Nikon Z6 - Image & Discussion Thread

    That super computer in my pocket that is connected to a massive trove of knowledge also takes good pictures! I upgraded my iPhone to get dual lenses with stabilization on both of them. It takes really good pictures, does not cost as much as a higher end camera and to top that not only is the...

    Nikon Z6 - Image & Discussion Thread

    Holding the sensor steady relative to the subject is probably number one. Not quite as good as a tripod but for me a lot better than un-assisted hand holding the camera. After that focus has to be #2. Certainly other factors may be at play here, but those two have to be the biggest. I...

    Nikon Z6 - Image & Discussion Thread

    I am guessing that IBIS and more accurate focusing have a lot to do with the great performance of F mount primes on the Z series cameras. Pinpoint auto-focus with primes seems to work really well!

    Nikon Z7's shutter curtain light diffraction

    Interesting! I saw a blog note about the vertical line saying it was the lens and that did not make any sense to me. Your description of shutter curtain diffraction proves that it is not the lens.

    Big Horn Sheep with a Too Short Lens

    Really nice picture Mark. The sheep in their environment are more interesting than a close-up of a sheep’s face.
