Heh, the head of CPS (a woman with a foreign name) didn't know the difference between one shot and AF-S focus when I was reporting problems, she'd only ever used continuous focus. They also didn't have any loan gear for me, despite being a CPS member. That was one of the factors that led to my moving to Nikon, though not the main factor.

Anyway, Dave (manipula) is this outfit part of your work? Pretty cool stuff (searchable) from many years ago.

That's not strictly me, but I have a bit to do with the team that do Digital NZ, a bit to do with the team that do Papers Past and also put all of my team's stuff in a place where DNZ accesses it.


Cheers, Dave.

Mark V and I took trip to Thames, then inland to see the tallest north Is waterfall @180 mtrs.

Nice day out but needed bigger lens ...... honest :lol:
River bed didn't provide much so very little photos taken.
Lucky we had all the rain last night gave us a descent photo op.
There was a couple of waterfalls coming off table mountain but to far away.

Just to give you idea of scale. Ignore PP.

Defiantly in need of longer lens &/or goat legs. Much too far away.

My shots of the falls suffered from a lack of lenght, this is about a 50% crop of a 24-105 shot. Quite impressed how much the shadows can be pushed with the 6D

Not for a while now. Longer lens would have helped but you tend to loose perspective on how big this thing is. Closer is better but I'll be buggered if I'm going to spend 10hrs basing the bush to get to the base of that thing!

so I guess then your going to get something longer? 10hrs is a long walk for a waterfall.

Yes very hard to get a sense of scale. They were about a 1km away from platform we shot from.

X marks where we were O marks where the 2 streams meet, the bottom 2 arrows are the track and top arrow is the falls.

It would not be a walk ...... ropes, river beds and a lot of luck. Thick bush and rock faces, slippery rocks ......... young mans photo op ;)
