I still have to go through the raw footage. Yesterday was a rough day and I was messing with the camera to take my mind off some things. My next lens will likely be a wide angle, though that'll have to wait a bit. I'm trying to be more responsible financially and get myself into a better place. Toys will have to wait.... *sigh*

This is the lens: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00005Y3OM?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_yo_pop_mb_pd_t2


I'm not sure on the exposure. The darker photo was taken in manual mode and I'm still figuring out how to use this thing. Whatever I had it set to seemed to work reasonably well.

Thanks, JJ, I was wondering about that one myself. I took a walk to the spot where I took that dragonfly picture with my Panasonic, the 30x optical lense on that would have given me a frame about the same size as the cropped image - the lower resolution (18mp) would not have been a problem. But for general "about town" stuff I like the 18mm bottom end of current Nikon lense.

Maybe I will check how much interest I have left on my savings and current account - that has funded my toys so far! There is a Nikon 24 - 300mm, but that if about twice the price of the camera!

If you took on NEF/RAW I thought the metadata was embedded in the file and a RAW editor makes it available. I assume you used the "intelligent" or the P setting? But I know what you mean, there are enough differences (improvements?) between the old and new to require a bit of practice.

Ravioli. There's a special place in my heart for Italian food.

Left pastatrium?

What lens are you using, JJ, and what exposure detaiks?

I could get no closer to my beastie, it was way down in a stream cutting below a bridge and I can't get down on the deck like I used to!

Here's an earlier photo, just before the sun turned amber.

I wish that I had gotten just a touch more detail in the wings but the light has left me.

France May have won, but that gaff by its goalkeeper that led to the second Croatian score was one of the stupidest plays of all time. A goalie has no business trying to be clever against an opposing striker.

That was a hilariously arrogant attitude by the French goalkeeper. :lol:
