  1. Alright I'll bite what is a Mark2?
  2. Yep... some lenses will go stop to stop searching for focus. If it misses the spot going out it may go all the way out to the stop before returning to focus. Setting the focus limiter shortens the stop to stop distance thus allowing it to come to focus sooner IF you already know the approximate range your intended subject will be within. i often use my in camera focus limiter for things like hummingbirds around feeders or flowers. This greatly decreases the to fine focus time
  3. June 2019 Assigned Subject will be "Bug's and Boat's". As in previous Assigned Subject threads these pictures should be taken during the Month of June 2019 and not archived pictures. Please keep in mind our intent to be a family friendly forum when posting your photographs. Anything associated with Bug's and/or Boat's pics taken this month will work......... lets see the pic's on this topic!

  7. It’s that time again... new assigned subjects needed for May..
  8. I haven’t bought anything for photography in a couple years or more .... last thing was a 105mm landscape polarizing lens for my lee filter box ... haven’t bought a camera since my Stellar.... I don’t shoot cameras much anymore since I no longer have to.
  9. It would be extremely petty and superficial to vote for or against a politician due to physical attributes. Essentially a wasted vote asking for a lack of results. i personally disliked the majority of the actions he took his last term in office .... the man could talk and persuade but the direction he was sending our country would of been fatal in the end. Bush’s last few years created the move to a person like Obama. Obama’s last term created the move to a guy like Trump. We as a nation tend to vote more often against something than for something. Hence we tend to reap what we sow..... I voted twice for Obama but quickly could not wait for his leadership to come to a end and voted for Trump because Clinton would of been more of the same and worse...
  10. My comment is while these hearings, meetings, investigations, witch hunts, or whatever is the new acronym used to color these go nowhere wastes of time, money, and, effort our countries important events and issues are going unaddressed. I don’t know about anyone else but I vote for political positions on the premise they will address the COUNTRIES important issues not for past lawyers to continue acting like lawyers and not law makers!! What will actually get done constructively for the country from a Barr grilling, or tax returns, or the whole report or redacted, or any of the next flavor of the month distractions from governing this nation????
  11. I had a high line acc lens kit at one time and it worked but I like my otter cases so I stopped using the acc kit and case
  12. Speed.... Mac collects and processes faster inherently by design. It snatched 128 bits at a time as apposed to windows 1 but at a time . Mac is more suited for graphic arts/video/ digital imagery but both work we enough most of the time for the majority of needs and wants
