A 4-stop would be even better, especially if you're going to have the new shutter work done, but I've not found any. They seem to jump from 3 to 6 stop, and 6 might even be okay... Let's see, a 6-stop would get you to roughly 1/500th at f1.4 with ISO 160 in sunlight, where my 3-stop is 1/4000th. Hmmm, methinks I may get a 6
    Jack,

    Thanks on the shot, I liked it and also liked that I managed to get the two covers of time out in enough focus to read.

    Another thanks on the the ND. I have an ND4 (2 stop) from a different camera (52mm so I can step up) and planned at that time to get a 3 stop and was talked out of it (Lesson: trust your gut!). I will add one to my next B&H list. Funny you mention it because I was just thinking about it this morning. There is a huge article in the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal about the conditions being perfect for this spring being an incredible desert wild flower season......I feel a road trip coming....

    What I want to do as a workshop is Picacho Peak and the Saguaro National Park but you have to be dead on with timing and the beginning of May maybe the best time. Something we should look into. Plus from there we could go to Bisbee and Sonora. First we have to do Carmel

    "For those who consider the American Southwest too close to civilization....the deserts of northwest Iran, near the borders of Iraq and Turkey, in May and June. They have 7,500 species of plants, which rivals all of California...."

    I don't use the 283 on the M8 anymore. The 285HV is a brand-new, low trigger voltage flash.

    We're good here. Though I might get a safesynch, because the 283 is quite a bit smaller than the 285 and still has the tilt head. Thanks!

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    I keep noticing better pictures buried within the pictures I take. There's at least one better shot in this humble photo of a well-used pump. It happens to me more than it should, I rush, or just shoot too casually (maybe too self-consciously?) and miss something simple and perhaps stronger. So going slower and looking a bit beyond the obvious is becoming a goal for me when out shooting.

    Do you have conversations with yourself like this? What goals or disciplines are you making for yourself?

    Re: Even More M8 Fun [POST YER PIX!]

    Here lies the big answer. i actually slow down more with the RF camera even though i can go at a rocket pace but i tend to think more , compose better and have much better focus when i do it all myself. This is all good. This is why i like manual you do it all yourself camera's. You just get better results. But that's me someone else may like machine gun

    Would love to Chuck, especially the San Miguel Allende and Minerale de Pozos areas! However, we're probably too late to get anything organized for an "international" trip until next year...

    Guy's quote is close to spot on, but I'd have to make a few small edits:

    Replace:
    Guy -> "even though i can go at a rocket pace"
    with:
    Chris -> "which is amazing because I'm already at a snails pace"

    and Replace:
    Guy -> "have much better focus "
    with:
    Chris -> "focus becomes a total crap shoot"

    But that's what makes it so much fun.

    You're so right Guy. I like the way the RF forces me to pay more attention. I still have to make the transition from that nice, black-framed, WYSIWYG view of an SLR though.

    Thanks,

    Tim , honestly it just takes some time. Even for me with all the years with many different style camera's . RF photography certainly gave me a new challenge and now not sure i could shoot without it, just because i enjoy working like this.

    Yea this could be fun. I will look into it more. Need to figure the timing , we have gotten a lot of rain so it maybe earlier this year. The desert is actually very green right now, so blooming is not far behind.

    We can start here and work our way south.

    Thanks Jack,
    I think I need to make the carousel a small photo project. Everytime I go (and it is a very short walk from home) I have at least one image that I am just really pleased with

    Early morning with the Digilux 2


    Panasonic TZ3 - no manual control and was having trouble stopping action even in high ISO sports mode so I just worked with what I could get ISO 800 1/15

    I would hesitate to put a timeframe on it, but I would guess half an hour, depending on the moisture of the surroundings.

    Interesting, that it just evaporates away, wasn't sure if they went for a dip in some water somewhere or used their paws to wash their faces/bodies. This is a trip that everyone needs to do at sometime in their life.

    Well, they lick and drink and wipe their face with their paws etc., just like your housecat.

    Thanks Cindy and DR....that is one of my favorite spots in NYC. Some kids are thrilled at the ride and others don't react quite as well but there is always an interesting shot to get.

    Jaap, the WB is not surprisingly wonky, as there's about four different light sources involved, daylight, shadow, fluorescent and incandescent. I just went for the best skin tones and that meant that the whites looked a little weird, I guess. Tell you the truth, I didn't even notice anything.

    My bad.

    Nature and Noctilux.
    This looks like nasty pollution, but it's iron coming out of the peat on the fen which creates these colours.



    only levels adjustment and a very small crop.

    A couple more with the Nocti - it's good for nature, but you certainly do need the fastest shutter speed if you want to shoot it wide open!

    Jono, I got a three stop 60mm Heliopan Nuetral density filter for mine. It really adds flexibility.
    Unfortunately, my Nocti is in Wisconsin visiting DAG.

    Maggie, not you bad, a daily struggle for us all. WB is mainly subjective imo. Personally I would have gone for somewhat more yellowish and subdued, but as you say, mixed light is difficult. I wonder what the real experts would say. If you don't like me playing with your image, I'll delete it (or ask the mods to if I am too late)

    I tried something like that, but rejected it because it loses the ruddiness of her skin and sort of washes out the contrast. But it's a valid choice and yours is well executed.

    Mixed light is always a delight, eh?
