We have had a week of rain, it is winter now and two areas have had heavy

flooding, We seamed to have got away with it so far but the worst is its not pictorial.

I haven't come up with any ideas at all. I will have a browse and see it I can find

something for you. Cheers.

Looking at this early frame I would say I had not worked out the best settings for

the camera. I would guess it was on standard,( I now use fine) and was also on

Auto, which canincrease the ASA. (I now set it at 100 ASA). You can see the noise

(just like film Grain) in the image, its best to avoid it if possible.

Today it stopped raining through it was very overcast.

I took Rosa for a walk uptown and this shot was taken around 5.30pm.

Ex was 8th sec at 2.8 at 35mm wide angle. 100ASA.

I am very pleased with it,it has littlenoise and haspicked up plenty of detail.

This shot is of the only fountain with a railway line running throughits centre in

any City in the world. Hastings New Zealand.The Art Deco Westermans shopping

block in the background survived the 1931 earthquake which killed around 240

people in Hastings and Napier. Who says the Kyocera m410R cant handle low

light.

Once again I thought I would try the camera out to the max.

This shot is of a New Zealand Silver Eye which is about two thirds the size of a

household sparrow. This one was 20ft high in a tree in my backyard.

The camera was at full tele plus 4x digital zoom. 35mm equ is 1480 mm.

Ex was 3.1 at 700th sec. 100 ASA. Uncropped.What do you think?

Is it worth getting a 2x tele conversion lens.

Another shot without digital zoomwas very cropped and I thought not as good.

Hi Seftonearl.

Really like this pic. Nice tones, reflections, ect.

Keep up the good work - I'm sure everyone is enjoying

them as much as I am.

Regards, Andrew.

Sorry Sefton ...... somehow by-passed your Silver-eye ... I usually try to comment if I can ...... shall be more diligent in the future ... :~}

It is a very respectable shot for the extreme zoom range. I, too, am pleased with the results of the 1480mm (equiv) setting ....they may not look too good in the EVF ...but if you can steady the camera, the output is not too shabby at all. The Heron is nice, also the pied barbed-wire bird ...... native of eastern Australia ...... I believe!:-)

Here's a recent shot from a visit to the River Dee near Chester by a group (swarm?) of keen entomologist (inc. me!)to look for the rarity and find proof of breeding for the lovely Gomphus vulgatissimus ..... don't you just love its name!

You can see we were successful ...... I found the only adult of the day ....and the wader chaps, whowere up to their armpits (or was it crotch) in River Dee water, got 20+ exuvia (the empty skin the dragonfly leaves behind when it emerges) on the steep banks right near the water ..... so proof of breeding too!

Cheers, KK

Well K.K. that pic puts all of mine in the shade.

Wasthe dragonfly shot with your close up 3 lens from a 135mm tele.?. or

was it large enough to not require more than a macro setting at tele.

I just love the detail in its wings.

Hi Sefton ....Yes .... it was the +3 diopter .......... I think it was just a little too small for on-camera Macro .....although I guess I could have got a close-up shot in Macro mode nearer the wide-angle end ....I'll have a play sometime at that!

Cheers, KK

p.s. the 135mm front elements got stolen along with my bike etc ...... the insurance will cover it ...but what value do you put on somethinglike that? I guess I could try for a Raynox...... hmmmmm! ...... especially after buying a lens coupling adapter, and hunting around for the right hood and plastic lens cap forthe 135....damn shame!

Still waiting to hear if they will replace (and what with?)that lovely little Black Contax SL300RT*.
