    Z 6 Is TERRIBLE At Sports and Action Shots!!!!

    Panther - Who says pro wrestling isn't real? You nabbed some great shots and the color is really outstanding! The Z6 may have its limitations but you certainly maximized its capabilities to get some very sharp images.

    Is Sony's Pace of Innovation Actually Hurting the Photo Industry

    Terri - Thanks. I enjoyed reading the article but thought it was a bit overhyped. Sony has certainly been innovative with their mirrorless products and they have put pressure on Nikon and Canon to produce mirrorless lines of cameras. Now that Canon and Nikon are in the mirrorless game, it...

    Who Needs Z7's High Resolution

    For my purposes the high resolution cameras, i.e., Z7 or D850, are all about the ability to crop and still get a highly detailed image. Since my 17-35 lens is well past it's prime, I've toyed with the idea of getting a Z7 since mirrorless appears to be the wave of the future but for right now...

    Head shot of a heron

    Looks good to me. Allan might be right about the focus point but it's still an excellent shot.

    Red-winged Blackbirds

    Louie - Beautiful light for those shots. We've got them in a wetland near us and it's hard to get any feather detail or colors from the wings. The first shot is really exceptional.

    Seriously??

    Roy - There is a link near the bottom of the story that will take you to the case text. Within the case text there are other links to explanatory cases. It's interesting reading but I still don't agree with the outcome since it certainly looks like a case of pure thievery on the part of the...

    My stroke

    Jim - Since I decided to take a nip of scotch tonight instead of wine, your health and recovery was toasted with double cask Macallan's scotch. I'm sincerely glad you are on the road to recovery and I look forward to updates on how you are doing.

    bad things can happen when you get caught fishing in some one else's spot.

    Fred - Really great series. You really nailed the exposure and captured the action perfectly. There's nothing like getting bit on the rear end to get your attention!

    Brian - What an exceptional image. I just don't see how you could have done a better job capturing it. Thanks for posting. I missed it when your post was new but I'm sure glad I decided to scroll through some of the older posts on the Cafe!

    Bill - both images are excellent; the color, composition, and sharpness really make them stand out. Thanks for posting. Let us know if you make that 8 mile hike. I'm sure any shots you get after that ordeal will also be exceptional.

    Nikkor 80-400 for birds

    I've got one that I use on my D810. Mine is nice and sharp (given my own limitations) and the VR is a big help. On the D810 it doesn't have enough reach unless you can get pretty close to your subject. However, on the D500 you would get the benefit of the crop factor so it would probably work...

    Yellowlegs

    Louie - The are all very nice but the third and fourth shots really grabbed my attention. The color and detail of the birds on the move is really exceptional. The one thing I might suggest is removing the object to the right of the bird in the third image. To me it was slightly distracting...

    A few from the backyard

    Daniel - Nice shots; especially the woodpecker on the move. I also enjoy taking pics of the backyard birds and it looks like we've got the same shepherd's hooks. We've got our nut feeders hanging from them and I also occasionally catch a shot of bird on top of a hook.

    Big Swallow

    I didn't realize that a heron could expand it's neck like this one did to accommodate such a big fish. I'm sure the more experienced photographers on this site have seen this many times but it sure surprised me. Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to catch the strike but I bet the fish was...

    Off topic but I really enjoyed taking a look at your landscape shot. The contrast between the foreground and background is really interesting. Looks like the Z/adapter/lens combo held up nicely.

    Terri - This is just another compelling reason why I hope you will be able to keep after your photography. I always like the way the water looks at the slower speeds and you got it perfect. The Z6 should work well for you and give you a lighter load. I'll look forward to seeing the pictures...
