^ Ron, find viewing info here: Link (external link). Should start at 9:44 for you.

I think I'll set up two cameras: 40D with the Tamzooka and 1.4X TC, and a 5DIII with a 35mm on a long exposure.

That is awesome Moose. He has something on his phone. He came running upstairs asked what my longer lens was and said, "you have two ninutes to grap your camera and get outside" I thought he was nuts. But within a few seconds of when he said to start looking, there it was on the horizon streaking across the sky. He is a science geek for sure. He is in the Physics PhD program at Iowa State University. I was so happy he shared this with me. I would never have even known what I was looking at if I happened to see if.

Cool kid :). Good luck to him.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Nice eagle shots, Peter! Where did you shoot these?
Also, where did you get your lens coat for the Tammy?

Thanks JM these was taken in Seward Park. The lens cover is from this company.
http://www.outdoorphot​ographygear.co.uk/ (external link) found them in ebay. I like there design and fitted really well too and it is cheaper.

He definitely takes after my wife in that smarts department. If you have ever seen the show Big Bang Theory, he is just like Sheldon on the show. And I mean JUST LIKE Sheldon. He has many of the same quirks at that character on the show.

Heya,

Anyone know of a replacement tripod collar with a foot that is better? I'm looking to replace it with something with two screws instead of one for a more secure arca plate attachment. As it is, a single bolt on such a long foot is just not good enough.

I'm about to move from free hand shooting with the Tamron 600, to a TC setup on a gimbal, just to have some extreme range fun both for static wildlife and lunar captures. So I'm looking to increase stability of the base.

Very best,

The recommended Kirk arca swis plate has an edge that sits on the back of the foot so it can't swivel. That's what I am using.

I hope not, he still lives at home and having a neighbor like Penny would be bad for an old married guy! LOL

I'm using a similar one by Kiwi.

I definitely need a lot more practice with this lens! Kinda liked the push/pull of the 100-400, easy and quick, especially for BIF.

In any case, here's a shot from yesterday, pretty heavily cropped and a bit of noise reduction (damn 7D!) I think it at least shows that, with proper use, the lens has potential!

Shot with a tripod, VC off. At 600mm, but EXIF data in Flickr.

This lens really shines when you nail the exposure. While I was visiting Rainier I saw plenty of deer that were close enough to shoot but with harsh sunlight and some dark shady spots, I have nothing to come away with. You really have to find perfectly spots to come away with keepers.

Excellent shots Lester. Well done.

@JM They are 3 viewing deck in Juanita Bay, I don't like staying in the middle not so much of a view but the one near by the osprey nest (used to be) Pole that is a good vantage point for the Eagles when the Eagle fish they usually eat/perch on that pole. and for small birds like Red winged-black birds, Tree Swallows I stay on the farther left of the point near the evergreen trees, The Eagles perched there too and it is nice area to take pictures of them while in flight towards the water sometimes they fly really close to the viewing deck looking for a fish. Those are my favorite areas.

Nice! I visit all three decks each time I'm there. I'll have to check out Seward park sometime too! Are the few resident eagles often visible there?
