Nice set Nick.
I got my 16-35 when they were first released and found that I was using it mostly at 24mm. I then got the 24mm f1.8 which is a great lens but but I keep coming back to the 16-35mm. It is a bit special!
I decided to go out looking for this image on a less than favourable day. The weather forecast led me to believe that it would have been cloudy but dry.
However, someone forgot to tell the weather! I had my D750 with 24mm f1.8 and my Z6 with my 16-35mm f4. The shot above was the Z6 shot -...
WRT mounting the Camera / FTZ / Lens on a tripod va the FTZ or the Camera:
With my Manfrotto system mounting to a tripod via the camera is not possible - the FTZ gets in the way.
Apart from that, it seems logical to spread the weight "evenly" between the two mounts (Lens and Camera). None of...
Sort of, but the difference is that it is fairly easy to try x lens on y camera even if you have to rent. The chances of finding two identical guitars with standard saddles and custom saddles to try out is fairly remote.
Changing to Callaham saddles in the hope of getting a more even response and more sustain. Different material used in the construction - the changes might only be minor but it is one of the ways of improving the guitar.
My NX-D and Photoshop CC are both up to date and I have no problem with my latest Z6 files being sent to Photoshop using "Open With". Look at the Register details - is that OK?
What has changed since you last used it - have you updated anything - OS, Windows etc?
While I was taking the last series, the church organist passed by on his way to do some practice so I joined him inside and did another series while listening to him run through a very difficult but enjoyable piece.
I use each one according to what I am doing. Right now I have a large number of slides to copy so my 60mm f2.8 is on the Z6 with the ES-1. The D750 is my main workhorse for panoramas. I do not have any Z lenses so mounting the Z6 on my Panosaurus might prove difficult to set up because...
I think that I can get better results with the Z6 than any previous camera and where it shines for me is the AF accuracy, particularly with the Pin Point Mode. I can get sharper results at lower shutters speeds, but I tend to use a tripod for most things so VR/I B IS is not high on my list of...
If you use a VR lens with the FTZ then the VR switch on the lens controls both the in-camera IBIS and the in-lens VR.
You don't have one independent of the other. Switching VR off also switches IBIS off.
With a VR lens you have both. With a non-VR lens you have IBIS.
I am using an ES-1 with either D750 or, more recently, Z6 and 60mm f2.8 with FTZ adaptor.
I have a large number of 35mm slides to scan (no negs) and with the Z6 and a constant lighting source it is possible to see the end result before the shutter is activated. I have found that using Flat or...
Nick has covered it all.
I have my U1 set to Ap Priority and it works fine.
When I then switched to A on the dial it was greyed out. I had accidentally left bracketing on. Removed that and it worked fine.
Before I got the Z6 I was using a cheap Neewer Focusing Rail ($20-30 from Amazon) and getting good Stacking results with Photoshop. I am not sure that the Z6 gives better results but it makes it a lot easier.
The action on the Yamaha appears to be incredibly high. #3.
It reminds me of the way that guitarist Freddie Green of the Count Basis Orchestra used to set up his guitars. He only played rhythm and the high action helped in that respect.
Would I be correct in thinking that your friend is a collector and not a "working" musician?
The condition of the instruments leads me to think that some have never been played and that one of them is (possibly) practically unplayable. Maybe the image, which are all great, is giving a false...
It is only a problem when you are using a mixture of AFS and S lenses.
My lenses are all G lenses and I have the RC2 mounted on the FTZ.
But the Gotcha is that I cannot take the FTZ off the body without first removing the RC2.
I only became aware of the Bug when reviewing the image in camera - the jumble of wire caught my eye and seemed like a good subject for showing what the Pin Point Focusing would do. I could have used a smaller aperture and got the wire in focus from corner to corner but I think that it would...
Nice series Mike.
Nothing to not like. Not your usual Martin Dreadnought shape.
My preference would be for the #3 shot to be sharp from front to back but I can see that you appear to be accentuating the CF Martin Logo.
I wish that I had been able to hold on to every Gibson (and a Guild) that...
It is a NIK conversion. I actually was looking for more trees to frame the Pylon. There are trees on both sides but leaving them all in would have brought more unnecessary clutter in the the frame. I left what you see in deliberately.
The Pylon is quite interesting in that it...
