Hi @@brumby

 

I couldn't get any of your pics to open when I tried Brumby. :( :(

 

Cheers

Hi Mick,

 

Do you mean that they didn't show up on your screen or that you couldn't open them in a separate window?  Both work for me.

 

I'm not sure I've got a handle on picture uploading.  I used Photobucket years ago but have more or less abandoned it.  I just opened a free Dropbox account today and these were the first pics I uploaded to them.  Do they show up for you in the original post.

 

What do you (and other people) use as a picture host so they can upload here?  I couldn't find any FAQ on this forum about the preferred method or size to upload pics.

Hi Mick,

Not working for me.. In Dropbox settings, did you set the permissions to public? Trying the link directly I get this:

Error (403)

It seems you don't belong here! You should probably sign in. Check out our Help Center and forums for help, or head back to home.

From that thing in bold, you probably restricted it (or use the wrong URL).

Would you mind trying again?  I think I've "shared" them but I'm not sure.  Normally, I shun all types of "social networks" like the plague.  Again, I ask which photo hosting site you use.

Still show up as 403 for me.. (broken link inside SNA)...

 

I use flicker.. It's quite complicated to use that. 

 

Upload to flicker, go to photostream, select the photo I want, click on the "Share icon" (lower right), select BBCode, select the size I want, C&P the link, and modify it to only show the JPG (Include only the IMG tags).

Edit: ^ Did that work?  Do you see a picture above?

myrantz your picture is fine.

 

Brumby when I click on one of your photos the computer just shows one of those endless loops of it trying to load something.

 

I am in a photographic group on Facebook, and post my pics there first and then just right click, copy image, and paste into SNA.

 

There are other ways to do it, but that one works for me.

 

Cheers

Yep, I can see the pic fine, myrantz.

 

I can't find anything in dropbox settings to set permissions to "public".

 

Sigh.  I'll figure something out.  In the meantime, sorry about the stuff up.  The pics were only test shots for the new lens anyway.

Test shots taken with the Nikkor 200mm F/4 AI manual focus lens I bought yesterday - http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/45277-camera-and-photo-chat/?p=1280878

First test shot I took.  I missed focus on this one  it was supposed to be on the little yellow/orange fruit.  Lens wide open at F/4

Another shot taken at the home of the bloke I bought the lens from

 

Some more test shots taken once I got the lens home

Yeah the flower picture is showing now.

 

I bought exactly the same lens a few months back from a guy in Japan.

Immaculate condition.

I could easily live without auto focus, and much prefer using a lens aperture ring than a camera dial .

I use it on a D800e, and use the Nikon DK-17 magnifying viewfinder eyepiece for my camera to aid in focusing, even though I have focus conformation available, which I keep forgetting I have LOL :)

Worth getting a magnifying eyepiece for your camera if you use manual lenses a fair bit, you need to see which model fits your camera though.

Yes, that's a good idea.  If and when I decide to upgrade to full frame (present D7000 to D750), I'll definitely look into it.  I have focus confirmation available on the D7000 but I must admit I wasn't using it on the very first shots.  I just wanted to make sure that the lens would function on the camera and didn't have any scratches or dust or fungus and that the focus ring was good and the aperture worked with the camera.  It passed on all counts.  I'm looking forward to using this lens and am warming very quickly towards the idea of manual focus lenses.  Very good picture quality on the cheap.

Here's the system chart for the D7000

You want the DK-21M magnifying eyepiece.

 

I found buying for the USA cheaper than here on items like this, even with postage.

US $25 at B&H

Aus $90 here, see what I mean.

nice work...though am not sure I'd be game going out there pointing a metal camera up in the sky...for fear of attracting some electricity myself and getting a bit too close to the action ! :D

This was @ 10:30pm and it was just the last little storm cell coming down the coast so I was "Reasonably" safe. When it got too close I was out of there!

 

must be pretty awesome to see ! we have a bit of a view of mountains and surrounds where we are and can be pretty amazing in a lightening storm but never been quick enough to catch myself...and would likely be  hot through a window which just isn't the same !

Following a tip a storm cell was on its way toward Frankston last night, I headed down. Unfortunately it didn't eventuate :(

 

 

Rain on its way, before it changed direction.

Amazing photo's!! @@Braddles 63

 

How do you take photo's like this and get the timing perfect?

 

A lightning bolt is only there for a fraction of a second ... how the hell can you react so quick to press the shutter (and allow for camera delay) to capure something that happens so quick?

 

Or do you set the camera up to shoot continiously and hope to capture a bolt at the right time?

Hey Sierra

These were taken at night time.

Tripod and time exposure. Used f8 and 200iso. Had the lens ( canon 18-55 ) open anywhere from 10-30 seconds.

Then it's just a little bit of luck.

I've tried to take take continuous exposures when it was too light for time exposure and you are right....it's nearly impossible to get one. It ALWAYS flashes as soon as you stop.

Yep, just checked the JPG setting in Irfan.  Shall we say it was not optimal :(   Oh well, I'm just learning how to do this stuff.  The RAW file looks quite a bit different, honest :P
