Thank Rick! How do I check my pc's native resolution?

P.S. - I'm in Stratford so yeah - lets meet up!

going out with a buddy today looking for a snowy owl,and possibly a bald eagle area and deer

Hey Will. To check PC's resolution capabilities: From memory you use Windows. Just go into Control Panel and (depending on version of Windows), "Adjust Screen Resolution" in the Display section. (Just type resolution into the search bar of Control Panel if you can't see it straight off.) It will show you what it is currently set to and give you the option of changing to another resolution. The Native Res is the one that has Recommended alongside it. Well that relates to the monitor I think, but it will list ALL the resolutions your Graphics Card is capable of. SO you just have to check that it is capable of outputting a Resolution that Matches the Native Resolution of the Monitor you intend to purchase.

Good luck with stalking Birds today .... with that Ice Storm passing through! My Mother-in-law and my Sis-i-l both live in Guelph and have power outage and Trees down. We are going down there 26-27th. Oh, BTW, I knew you were in Stratford and I've just changed my location from Collingwood to Meaford.

Almost 2 weeks ago, I went out with my buddy from Wasaga Beach in search of Snowy Owls. He knows a great place where they are regularly sighted. Well, we did get to see a few but only one in good light and the other two it was almost dark and driving with full headlights on. These couple of images, I just uploaded to Flickr only to show you. They are merely souvenir shots and NOT good technical shots. :oops:

As a side note. To get these photos, I was driving my Toyota Matrix and we were on rural lanes that had a good covering of snow and some ice. Two days later, and more snow had fallen, my friend went back out on his own in his Toyota Echo and on the first lane he went (where my shot in the field was accessed from), his Toyota Echo bellied out .... He spent 3 hours, on his own laying in the snow, digging all the snow out from under it so he could get the wheels down onto ground for traction. He was soaking wet and freezing cold. Pride wouldn't let him use his cell to call his wife because her last words to him were ... Don't get stuck!" :rolleyes: to which he replied fatefully, "I've never gotten stuck in all my 64 years!" ..... Bahahaha
Now those laneways are part of the Ski-doo trails :vmad

Probably will be a little MIA. GOT MY PS4 TODAY!

Nice, I'm kind of jealous.

Don't have one personally, but use them often with friends.

If you think it's a good idea to have it on and recording, it probably is. Haha. All the different mounting accessories are really good.

That's some great advice. I plan on using it often.

Last Friday, I went to a celebration called 'The Ingathering of the Exiles' a singing night at the home of my wife's voice teacher. There were many of her students, present and past, of all ages (but mostly young) and an amazing show of talent.

Photographically speaking, I got deceived by the CFL lighting and had the devil of a time to get the WB right in post. Also, trying to keep the noise low, I pushed the shutter speed down to the 1/50-1/80 for the 200 mm end of my 70-200, shooting at lower ISOs (3200-5000) and no ETTR. I ended up with a lot of soft photos... I think next time I will auto-bracket all the way to ISO12800 with +1 and +2 f-stops.

The wassailers!

the wife(left) and a friend. No dodging and burning. this collapsable octa/beauty dish is awesome with lighting. one more flash bounce to the ceiling for hairlight and a flash behind them for rim light.

Lighting is great! Image is soft... :( You are getting trapped in the ultra thin DOF...

I know this was what you were trying to do Vinz. It's very tempting with the large apertures to try to do this and then we miss the shot and end up with portraits which are sharp eyelashes and fuzzy ears and nose tips (I am not saying you have ever done this, I've seen enough by other people).

And as I said, I liked the lighting. :D

I like very shallow dof. I don't care if the nose or ears are out of focus. I'm not a fan of hard and fast rules. ;) A lot of times if you worry too much about keeping everything in focus, you loose the feeling of the image imo. Looks too much like a point and shoot. After all, shallow dof is the reason we have aps-c and full frames right?

The rule for me is, when the eyes are sharp, the shots are in focus.
