    Definitely improved -- my lowly 70-300 will AF at 300mm (f5.6) on a black object in the cabinet in the corner of my room at night. :D

    I can't say AF is better than Sony now, but only because I don't own a Sony to compare it to. But I can say that with this update, my Z7 AF's better...

    Hi Jack,
    I hope this message finds you well. We're having a late snow dump here in Switzerland, so I'm packing gear to head out and shoot in the mountains!
    I have an admin issue I'd be grateful for some assistance on. The last couple of months, I've managed to acquire an online stalker/abuser. I won't bore you with details, but it's not fun. I'm getting abusive emails to both my personal and professional email addresses, quoting post of mine from the couple of forums I participate on.
    I'm using a couple of strategies to deal with it and one of them is to change my nickname on each forum, including yours. I've always used my own name in the interests of transparency, but this isn't working so well right now.
    The user CP doesn't allow me to change my nick, so I'm hoping it's possible at admin level. If you can do it, I'd like to go by "goesbang" if it's not already taken.
    I hope you can assist.
    Cheers,
    Bryan Siebel

    I am so envious of your trip to Bryce and Moab. I just wish I had checked or I would have gone. Those were some wonderful photos of one of my most favorite places, any time of the year. Perhaps, next time.
  4. Looks good to me on my computer. If you are viewing on an iPad or retina, there can be some anomalies in how the images display. We are installing new code that is supposed to help with this.

    This one looks fuzzy. The original is razor sharp.... All I did was downsize in PS & save for web, 1200 x 540, and file size was about 700K. Maybe it just looks fuzzy in gallery but if I were to post it, it would look better, or am I doing something wrong. Thanks for answering the neophyte question!
  6. Kevin, send me a link to the thread you are trying to post in. I suspect you are adding it as an attachment -- when you do that, all that appears is a thumb that needs to be clicked on. If you embed the image hosted link from your album here, then it will appear normal size. Read our "read this" forum and this is all explained: http://www.getdpi.com/forum/about-ge...e-gallery.html

    Hi Jack. I'm trying to post a photo on the tech cam images thread, and my images always look small! I followed the directions in the FAQ, and sized the image to be 1200 x 540, and when I preview the post the pic looks like a thumbnail!!!! What am I doing wrong? Dan Linbergs shots always look large and very professional on the thread. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, Kevin

    Are you the one who edited my post and also deleted my post in the Monochrom group?
  9. Yes it works normally with the 70-200 VR. It won't mount to the 24 PCE, but will mount to the 85.

    Hello Jack,
    I have a question regarding the Nikon TC 14 II conversion . What does that actually achieve?
    Can I use it with a PC lens like the PCE 24?
    Also will it still work normally used with the 70-200 VR II ?
    Hope you're well and regards from Sydney!
    Regards,
    Willem.
