  1. Hello everyone....

    The Catch of the Day
    Hit by BC#15 Brandon Feil and taken down by PC#7 Mike Murray. BC#15 ran all the way to third thinking the ball was dropped.....However he was wrong.....OUT!

  5. Nice shots Geno! I sure hope PC won since that's my alma mater. In fact, I just realized next month will mark 20 years since my graduation. Ouch. :D

    Hi Geno,
    Great shots! and thanks for writing about the D2X that you saw in the store...If you hadn't put in the phone number I never would have called. Just couldn't help myself...

    Now, when you get your 300VR don't put in the phone number :lol:

    Super baseball shots and I love baseball. The Minnesotta Twins and the Boston Red Socks do their spring training down here in my town.

    Thanks for sharing
  8. Sorry

    I hate to say BC won by 1 point in the last inning....It was real what a rivalry!

  9. Don't look now....

    Don't look now, but the 300 VR is here. I got it from the same place Gaye. Took about 4 days to come in; and 5 for the replacement foot from Really Right Stuff.

    Hey Geno?

    Good action shots. When you use the HSC mode, do you find yourself almost always using the center focus reticle? I find if I use the side ones, there isn't much room to leave any open from for a subject to "go" into.
  12. Great stuff, very well done, you shouldnt have showed the 300 VR shots, that was down right mean of you :wink:

  14. Re: Hey Geno?

    I use center a lot...It seems to be the fastest, but if I know a runner is headed to second or third I use the one to the right and focus on his head as I pan along with him. In this case I actually knew he was going to steal second so I prefocused. Today I finally had time to figure out the focus memory and I really thing that will help with sports. I can have the lens pre-focused and also try to get a shot of the pitcher or someone else prior to the run.

  15. Gale,

    It looks like I am headed that way so I might as well take all the toys I can with me....

    Just Kidding,
  16. This really hurts!

    First I would like to thank everyone for stopping by.....

    Today I took the D2H with me since I was shooting some skateboarding with my kids and need the 8fps non-cropped. I had some fun with the Fish-eye and at the end of the day I tried the 300 totally hand-held...and got caught in the act. But I can't believe I can actually see the goose bumps on this lovely ladies arm.
