Heh.... I went to Waingaro looking for falls. Found none, I vaguely remember some from years back, roads have changed, not much water in the river and my almost brand new cpl is MIA, I left it on the wagon roof. :( Quite a few pics and few any good, still out of practise I guess. Drove 300 kms. Also the 6D in monochrome seems to want to over expose? I'll post some later.


Panasonic Lumix G9 and lenses from 7mm wide to 300mm long.

Just back from my first 5.5 hr tramp in ranges ....... signs say for experienced trampers :lol:

Waterfalls waterfalls and more waterfalls. Didn't take camera, just cell phone.
Red is the tramp, yellow the waterfalls.

This is not a treak for those that hate heights or walking along ledges

And? Did you get any pictures you can share, or were you just checking it out for a second trip with camera?

Cell phone pics only (blown out)

very rugged tramp slipped once so 2 elbows and a knee paid for that mistake.
There is one spot you walk along a ledge about 2 ft wide on your left is vertical cliff on your right 20-30 ft drop in to stream bed and for good measure no cell phone coverage at all.

I need to really plan the second trip. Too much rain and everything becomes a hazard due to everything been slippery and very risen stream levels. To fine and photos just blow out ( need to be in stream before sun gets up). Perfect sunny day yesterday.

The next big one has about 15 falls on it but people who have done it and done the one ive just been on say its much harder.

I guess Im trying to work out if I want to cross that line to get the shot that no one else has ...... or be crazy enough to try.
Maybe im getting old and loosing my nerve or its just not the place you want to lug camera gear. So im doing my avatar :)

All the pics I've seen on web are just snaps I want a photo ...... without anything broken ....me or my gear :)

Hmmm.. I must admit, that does look interesting.
For the sports photography I do, the 70-200 is often too short.

Ranting a little today - my new X-Rite i1 Display Pro calibrator turned up today, has stung a little as it's pretty pricey but the only thing currently you can calibrate my lovely Dell 2713UH screen with. Got it from Amazon landed in four days at a third of the cost I can find it anywhere in NZ.

I'm all for supporting local business but **** me if that kinda price gap simply isn't taking the p**s.


Cheers, Dave.

Why wouldn't a Spyder 4 do your screen?

Not sure what you mean? Anything particularly special about the screen? Wide gamut isn't a problem, 10 bit colour isn't a problem.

I thought the Spyder 4 Pro does Wide Gamut LED?
It does Wide Gamut, and it does LED, can't see why it wouldn't do both together.

I just looked it up. The X-Rite has been developed in conjunction with Dell so that it can alter the monitors internal 14bit LUT.

That doesn't mean that you cannot use any other device that will calibrate & profile a wide gamut monitor. The other devices will utilize the video card LUT (some for the older TN monitors will be 8 bit but most modern will be 12 bit)

The 14bit LUT just allows for finer adjustment (were getting into pretty fine ajustment that the human eye cannot distinguish anyway)
