I made a 20 foot remote cable for my k110 a couple of weeks ago
and today was my first chance to use it. 1/1000th sec @ sp. ISO 100.
Very happy with my first try using it. Jim

Good for a first try. You might try setting some -Evnext timesinceit looks like the camera exposed more for the dark trees than for the much lighter hummer (or is it my monitor?).Otherwise the picture is fine (perfect focus, the right shutter speed to catch the winge, etc.) andthe set-up sure looks like it will be very useful catching what I find such a frustrating bird to shoot!

Nice for your first try. I haven't used a remote yet, but can imagine it's harder to time. Knowing that when I use an LCD screen on a camera rather than the viewfinder, I'm always off.

Yes, the background was very dark and the hummer was tiny and light colored.
I think it metered more on the background. Tks, Jim

I am off usually also. This one was cropped so I
got it centered the way I wanted. Tks for the remarks, Jim

a great first try
looking forward to seeing more


can you set the camera to take photos at different exposures if you take 5 in a row
it likely has a name
i once had my K10D setto take a photo at the correct exposure then the next was +1, then - 1, +2, -2 so one would be good

Yes, I think I can vary the exposures while taking 5 shots
but not sure exactly how to do it. I have plenty of time
and patience so will work on that, he he he. Here is another
similar shot except the wings are in the forward position. I
think I like this better than the other one.. Jim
