Wow, those are fantastic Mark. I now hate you just that little bit more...

I completely agree.

I somehow doubt that Rich will be so quick at inviting you next time, you're clearly too awesome.

The steadiness will come, Wayne. Just keep the camera held nice and firmly and keep your elbows close into your body with a good, stable stance.

With hand held photography, especially macro work, careful use of the shutter button helps a great deal. Half press it to an extent where it's just teetering on the edge of firing. then, when you want to take the shot, all you need is the slightest of extra pressure. This'll stop any potential jerking of the body at the point of capture.

Your latest set is really good. You're getting there!

And the techniques you're developing here will inprove your photography in other areas.

Thanks Pete. Your dead right about the shutter button. I even turned on the grip and started shooting with my little finger to try and stop the little twist that happens when the button is pressed. :)

Good stuff.

No camera for me today. I guess things are slowed up today. Will most probably come tomorrow, most probably when I'm not home.

cheers chaps glad you liked them, as for Rich well he can take much better bike shots than that with his eyes closed, I think I will stick to wildlife, much slower pace...

Your bug shots are getting better every time you upload them Wayne, I would if I was you use a flash then camera and bug shake are gone just have to diffuse the flash as best you can, there are lots of links in the macro section with how to make diy diffusers out of things like coke cans and kitchen paper. As for settings then I start with manual, f8, ISO200, 1/200, and play around from there, also start with bugs that dont move to much, ladybirds are a fav with me, earlyish morning they dont move to much is the best time. The other thing that will help are tubes, on my 70-200 f4 that I used to have they worked a treat..

Actually Wayne if you fancy a day out somewhere while we have a bit of nice weather for a bug macro hunt and you want some help then I dont mind showing you how I take bug pics as sometimes its better when your shown, its just a thought...

OK, a few of tech questions for which my grey cell KB is out of date???

1) I think some folk here are using "Powerplug Ethernet connectors", if I have recalled that right what make and model are you using and how well do they work for you???

2) Talk earlier about the Seagate Momentus hybrid drive sounds good so was also thinking replacing my C drive with one but obviously want to clone the drive but my old version of Acronis AFAIK will not handle 64 bit OS so ideally free what is a good cloning tool ideally one that will partition the drive and clone the contents of the partitioned C & E drive currently in use to the new one (adjusting the partition sizes as appropriate???

3) Had an odd error event this evening that would not clear so had to "go to start and shutdown".
The dialogue box was as follows:-

In the header title - WERFAULT.EXE Application Error

In the body of the box - The Exception Privileged Instruction (0xc0000096) occurred in applicationat location 0x754e81fc click OK to terminate

Well clicking OK just refreshed the dialogue hence the shutdown.

Upon reboot all looked well though IE behaved like it had been forced to close though it did shutdown by clicking the X

My search so far just tells me that Watson Client caight an error due to corrupted file(s) but as far as I can so far all is working well ~ hopefully not famous last words :lol:

1) Belkin Gigabit Powerline HD. They work very well. Had to power cycle them twice in the last year to fix connectivity issues which I class as great performance. Downside is the cost. I was an early adopter of this so paid over the odds. My advice would be to find some cheap ones on eBay from a seller with a good returns policy and try them out for yourself.

2) Macrium Reflect. Take the free edition. It's the only software I've found that will clone your HDD and keep the 100Mb system partition intact. Bin Acronis.

3) Windows is an imperfect operating system. Accept that, reboot and move on. Not even IT pro's troubleshoot (or worry) about his kind of nonsense. Life is too short.

HTH

@ Wayne ~ looking good fella :D Gone on take Mark along for company I am sure there is a thing or two he does not know especially about NE ~ I hope :lol:

@ Jonthan ~ many thanks for pointers and heads up re kit & software choices :D

Edit ~ re Macrium ~ as far as I can tell there is not as such free version only a trial one ???

PPS Found the Free edition by Googling for it here http://www.macrium.com​/reflectfree.aspx (external link) could find this page using the various links off of the main page or even by searching on the site...............met​hinks they do not wish you to find/use it :lol:

OK one last one? The file has a designated MD5 hash tag to confirm its integrity, is there recommended utility to get/use to check the hashtag???


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p
