    Using Z-cameras on Safari

    It was interesting, and I'm glad to see solid reports of performance in conditions like that coupled with user reports like we see here at the Cafe. I'm currently waiting to see if there's any confirmation Nikon will do a 24-85/4S or 24-120/4S. Most likely my Z6 will replace my Fuji stuff for...

    35 - nice capture of some architectural detail. Best wishes for your Husband's speedy and full recovery! 36 - ditto on Klaus' comment, you've got an eye for both detail and comp.

    35 - as a bit of a geek, I find myself liking these photos a lot. Nice detail, neat machines. :) 36 - set has a wonderful, but foreboding atmosphere. (Sorry Klaus, my warped sense of humor went there. Hope the bad weather wasn't too bad there. :bag:)

    36 (Cheat Week) Busy with appointments and ramping up visits to the torture palace fitness place, so I didn't get out as much as I wanted for photos. Most of what I got was more "meh" than usual, a few hummingbird shots were a bit better. Taken with the K-1 and DA*300/4, heavy crop.

    Thanks - most likely boring shots, but the rendering out of the lens is what I really like. Sharp but smooth, if that makes any sense.

    Ack. Forgot I did gear shots yesterday, too late to go out for anything. Oops. Anyhoos... Harbinger. Of the 50/50. And possibly O'fest. Z6, Voigtlander Vintage Line 50/3.5 Heliar. X100F, available light, in-camera jpg settings with some spot cleaning, re-sized for web.

    35 Still working on in-camera settings with the X100F. The Ektachrome sim from last week isn't one I'm going to like for landscapes, colors are just a bit to green-ish and vibrant with those settings. So working on another for landscapes. These two are based on the Classic Chrome sim, mostly...

    Alternate day 6 shot of the K-1, This required a bit more work than the other, had to drop exposure by .3 and lift shadows a slight bit, as well as the same spot cleanup as the other.

    Not sure I'm going out for photos today. So here's a shot of my Pentax stuff (K-1, DA*300/4) I've been using this week for hummingbirds.

    Thanks Ron. Your stomping grounds are photogenic as well. Always enjoyed our times in the UK, but had little time for sightseeing. One of the things I love about photo sites and the internet - get to see places I've been through other's eyes, as well as places I've never been and probably...

    Yeah, they had XV in the name here as well - XV Crosstrek or some such. Dropped the XV in 2016 IIRC. Works great as an all-weather basic transport. A little small and under powered for me at times, and a bit lacking for some of the spots I used to like to roam.

    XF 35/2 on the X-H1 (no 35 for the Z6 yet). The 35mm FOV from my X199F is in the bucket. Still not sure if this is a lens meme or a FOV meme. 16:9 crop of the original, processed to taste on a base of in-camera Acros film sim.

    Thanks Klaus. The rain here can fall hard when it rains, and with less than normal vegetation it runs off quickly and we have "flash" flooding. The hat is a Tilley, specifically the LTM5 AirFlo.
