Hello

I've been a avid reader of this forum and a few others over the last month, ever since I decided to purchase a FZ30, I received it last week and have been experimenting ever since. You seem a good lot, so please don't be too harsh lol.

I managed to pick up a Ricoh TC-200m last week for £3.50 ($6)! on Ebay, I must say what a nice teleconverter it is, all shots below were used with it.

If you like the shots I will look forward to posting some more. I'm like a sponge at the moment, sucking in info and learning, so keep up the good work.

(First two were taken behind glass, a little PP but no cropping at all).

All the best

Shingle.

For someone whose just got the cam those are pretty good shots indeed esp the 1st two being behind glass. No sign of a reflection at all. The first two are nice and sharp and the exposure looks pretty spot on as well. No 3 is a good shot as well, he looks pretty well camouflaged as well.

Cheers

Welcome Shingle



really impressive shots, and the quality of the TC seems fairly good, although the images are resized.

I like very mich the Gibon monkey and especially the Caracal cat (?, #1)

You are right I misidentified it (caracals have no spotted skin).

Welcome Shingle, All the shots you posted are real beauties! You did a great job especially considering two were through glass, which I wouldn't have noticed had you not indicated it! That cat appears to be the size of a normal house cat except for it's oversized and colorful 'W.C. Fields nose'! Jim
