Been trying to get a decent photo of this very small jumping spider who seems to frequent the backdoor. But he/she is very active so hard to capture a shot of. This is with the macro + extension tubes. crop of the same top view, also a crop and I... Continue reading

It is sad that I had to order if from the US. I try to buy things from local sellers, if not producers. But this item was not available anywhere I could find in Australia. The other option was China (where the delivery estimate was between 3 days and one month). I don't like to buy stuff from China if I can help it. That is what I check food labels for. And I didn't trust I would get the right part from China. And you are right Python - the super-abundance of items predisposes to purchasing them.

I would be mightily impressed if a phone could take macro shots. However i fear that infinite depth of field at this reproduction/magnification is prevented by the laws of physics. If I could get more in focus I would love to.

Jumping spiders are cute. But not just a pretty face. Unsure what the prey is but might be a baby white tail (from the banded legs). Continue reading

for the zoom ring on my 18-200 lens. Finally got around to ordering this to replace the droopy old one. Had to order from USA and it came very very quickly. Almost like a new lens again. Continue reading

and I thought this was going to be about his Sigma lens. (making Barnaby's look like a baby).

opportunistic shot of the moon earlier this evening. D3300 + 55-300 (@300). Stupidly didn't shoot in RAW but only 'Normal' so minimal processing options - sharpened (+4) and shadow protection a little. uncropped cropped image Continue reading

Paulus is opining he doesn't have enough room for his camera gear. Well I may be able to help ... with a Gumtree hunter-gatherer acquisition: Lowepro Nova 5AW. Just $40. Don't think they make this bag anymore but I reckon it would cost $150 at least, with 18-200 + D3300+18-105... Continue reading

A couple of GumTree freebies, and an ebay catch. after quite a bit of watching, found this manfrotto monopod and head with removable plate and ability to flip the camera 90 degrees. Tried it out for moon shot this evening too. Continue reading

nice. At the unzoomed size they look great. Are the close ups crops of the preceding image or separate images? What were the settings?. Were these hand held or on tripod? Try the same shots with your 18-55 - counterintuitively I reckon you will be able to get closer because of the shorter focussing distance. I also suggest try using flash - that should take some of the noise out of the dark areas.

Tee world will be consumed by fire. Last Pope according to St Malachy's list. 100 years since Fatima. Escaton anyone? I agree with you. It is a really bad idea. Trump is a chump so he may well think it is a good, testosterone charged idea. As I heard the author of the recently published novel about Cicero say that Lenin said - "if you aren't sure what to do, start a fight, then it will become clear" however in this case there may be no opportunities to do what presents itself as we may all be gone ...
So, I'm sitting at the table with the laptop. Not that long come in from putting the ducks to bed. Feel something on the side of my head, and brush it off. Behold it is a little black and white spider. Not a white tail. Not a redback but with... Continue reading
