    Test Bokeh and shutter mode

    I've read that IBIS should be turned off when using the camera on a tripod. Which makes sense, given that it may introduce sensor shake. But what possible problem could EFCS introduce (other than at very high shutter speeds) when using the camera on a tripod?

    Yep! Yay! :th_salute: I hope it was an easy fix.

    OK, I logged out, did a hard reset on my iPhone, opened this site in Safari (without logging in), and I still get no response from the icons underneath anyone’s posts. This is confounding. :dash2:

    OK, I just downloaded and launched Chrome, then logged in here (I'm using Chrome to type this post). Same problem: I cannot get any response when I click on a "Like," "Agree," or any other forum icon underneath anyone's posts, including my own. Clearly Amin has it in for me. :cautious:

    I just tried that on my Mac. It didn't work. And since the problem is no different on my iPad and iPhone, I don't think there's much chance that trick will work on them either. And I don't want to clear the cache and have to re-login on all of the web sites I customarily visit. Very strange. I...

    Interesting. I'm on a Mac running the latest OS (10.14.6) using the latest version of Safari (12.1.2). But the same problem exists on my iPad Pro running the latest iOS. In any case, when I click on the icons (or numbers) at the bottom of my posts, nothing happens. :hmmm:

    Here's one: I used to be able to click on the "Like," "Agree," etc. icons at the bottom of my posts and see who it was that liked or agreed with (or laughed at) me. Now that function seems no longer available. Is there any way to restore that function?

    Pic a day....

    It's not your eyes, AOA. I can juuuuuust barely make it out if I look at the full-sized image at 100%. But it's probably the closest moon (Io), right at the 3 o'clock position. You can see what looks like a bump on the surface of Jupiter, and the glare from the planet almost obscures it.

    My wife volunteers at the local shelter, and we’ve always had shelter dogs living with us. We’re on #5 & 6 now. There are always plenty of mature dogs in the shelter, surrendered for a variety of reasons, and we’ll probably take in a couple of them the next time we find ourselves dogless...

    Temporary GAS relief...

    So far, neither the A7RIII nor the A7RIV have tempted me to replace my A7RII. I’d lose access to the built-in apps, for one thing. And I’d have to buy all new batteries. And the dynamic range of the newer R models isn’t noticeably better (to my eye) than what I have now. The better AF...

    I like that. Seems a bit clearer than clicking on “Like” and then selecting the icon you intended to use.

    Tripod or not?

    I agree, the only time I bring a full-size tripod is when I have some specific shoot in mind. It’s not something I just “throw in the bag.”
  20. WoodWorks

    Tripod or not?

    Well, there are long exposures, of course. And situations where you may want to include yourself in a group shot. Focus stacking. Macros. When you’re feeling contemplative, and want to get the framing juuuuuust right. I bet there are others I can’t think of right now.

    Tamron SP 35-80mm 01A

    I can see nothing to complain about in those. But in order to have any thoughts I’d want to see some shots that might stress the lens a bit: contrast... corner sharpness... bokeh quality... flare control... that sort of thing.

    Around the Great Basin

    I had checked the weather forecast, so I knew what I was heading into. And I did have that fancy new camera backpack with the built-in water bladder. And as long as you keep hydrating and moving, and you open up all the vents on your jacket, it’s almost tolerable. :laugh:

    Around the Great Basin

    No kidding. At one point I was duck-walking the bike for about 20 mins. past a construction zone on I-15, and the temp. gauge on my dashboard read 117°F/47.2°C. 🥵

    Around the Great Basin

    I had to go out to Salt Lake City last week, and decided to ride out there instead of flying or driving. And I brought along my A7RII with the Sony 24-105 f/4, Loxia 21 f/2.8 and Sony 35mm f/2.8. Even though the temperature got up over 110ºF/43.3ºC while I was out there, I still had a great...

    How about "Pilot Rock?" There are about a hundred of them scattered all over the western U.S. My guess is that Australia has a few of its own.

    Flickr .....

    Especially “free” ones. I use Flickr for photos that I want quick access to, for web posting, or for viewing on my phone. But I’ve never considered paying for their “service.” I’m sure they’re monetizing me somehow, but I can’t be worth much. :D

    This is the original railbed of the Transcontinental Railroad in northern Utah, completed in 1869. It was largely abandoned in 1908, when they built a causeway across the Great Salt Lake. And in 1942 they ripped out the rails and melted them down for the war effort. Now it’s about a hundred...

    No fan of watermarks here either, so this version is definitely better. Love the bus in that first shot.

    Given the dynamic range latitude my A7RII's sensor provides, I haven't used a ND filter for at least a couple of years now. And I'm no fan of the HDR "look." My goal is almost always, as @pellicle mentions, to try to reproduce what my eyes saw. And since my camera still allows for the use of the...

    I’ve read over on SAR that it goes to f/6.3 at 300mm. If I had unlimited funds, I’d be all over that lens. But I shoot wildlife maybe once a year when the bald eagles nest over in the Klamath Wildlife Refuge. So unless I suddenly uncover the funds for a safari in Botswana under my mattress...
