Excellent clarity, particularly the snake shot. I feel I should get one.

Raghu - are you referring to the snake or the lens???


It looks like the snake may have just eaten. Seems like I see a bulge in his waistline.

You really are an artist LT - perhaps like Jack says, I'll just have to settle for using the EZ zoom, and admire your spectacular work with the TCON, as I think my 20 buck tripod might not do it justice I just have bitumen and council roadworkers to "focus" on where I live :S

Thanks again for sharing, I love the zoom and nature work you and Clint are contributing so regularly.

Kind Regards
Greg

and start taking pictures, but I got to much work

Nice pictures BTW

Thanks for all the kind words, but I am still a Noob making mistakes missing great shots all the time...but a lot of fun learning the camera's limitation and mine!

To be honest I was just trying to post a lot of different shots with the FZ35 and the LT-55 to give people and insight of the capabilities...I don't shoot RAW just JPEG also...

One thing I learned even with the Canon 7D a Monopod is GREAT for hiking and if you can manage the Tripod it's gets even better...

I have a cheap Manfrotto Monopod and Tripod w/ a very simple head Manfrotto 486RC2...both Aluminum (Al-You-Mini-um where Greg comes from) and they are much heavier than Carbon Fiber...maybe I will buy Carbon Fiber in the future but I am definitely going to lay my hands on it before I shell out $500-600 for a Tripod!

Thought: If Helium is lighter than air (and cheap and plentiful), why don't they fill the tubes with it and make the Mono/Tripods lighter?...Then maybe they could get a cheap Allyouminiummm pod to be as light as Carbon Fibre, but at a fraction of the price.

(Yes Clint, I, know, I'm full of hot air sometimes)
