I think some bikers (the push-bike variety) are going out to-night in Belfast and finishing with up with a Barbecue http://www.belfastcity.gov.uk/events/Event-67679.aspx

I don't think I'll go have a look


Just to add to the thread, a street locally, shot with the D7100 lol


Nice shot Musket, according with the picture looks like your town is very quiet, I would love to see something else like old churches/buildings and parks.

Musket... the cars are driving on the wrong side of the road! LOL

Since we're showing cameras with big lenses, how about this one?
D7100 w/Tamron 200-500mm. I made the stock setup myself for BIF.


I sold that lens last year and got the Nikkor 80-400mm VR.
Now I'm thinking of selling this one and getting the new Tamron 150-600mm.

Wow, that looks like an assault rifle

Nice set up Jack but how comfortable is to shoot with that holder? it really help to achieve a better ergonomics that the simple camera/lens?

...and why I ended up selling it as too many times had people calling the cops and having that hassle of dealing with them. Guess they thought I was shooting the eagles with something other than the camera. Things like what happen in Orlando last week doesn't help either. It sold really fast (within an hour on craigslist). I was considering marketing that before the "cop" problems, and changed my mind for same reason.

Not exactly a simple camera/lens setup... a bit of weight when you add the battery grip, flash and fairly long lens with even longer hood...
It helped a lot for support... for comparison, you probably know shooting a rifle is far more accurate than shooting a pistol... same thing applies to my setup. If you looked closely you would have saw the camera release right where the trigger normally is. I shoot a lot of Eagle pics and BIF in general and it helped.

Yes well the emigrants who went to the new world didn't know their right from their left, they have always driven on the left in the UK lol

@ Marcelo great street shot lots of out of focus areas in those.

@ Jack55 Great idea and well constructed to, a rifle like stock to hold the camera and lens that allows you just to point and shoot like a rifle
