Yes, that's much more striking, good edit.
Thanks Mike. That shot below was shot in jpeg. NOW here is the RAW format pic that I edited. It is more accurate as to how I saw the truck. It was a cloudy day & the truck had a darker shade of purple (THAT is what caught my eye) than the one below...
Excellent shot, good color,contrast and focus. The lens did very nicely, you're sure to enjoy using it! And that's good news for my friend as well. Have fun!
Hi Mike I attached a photo to this message. I shot this with my lens zoomed to approx 300 mm. I was some distance from the truck. I used the editor I have (I still have the RAW image unedited to work on). Anyway this was hand held. For em anyway, I don't think it's too soft. All I did on this was crop & adjust contrast SLIGHTLY..
Yes I agree. Also the reason I upgraded is that my digital point & shoot has only the BIG lcd viewfinder to shoot with. It is nearly impossible to shoot outside especially if it is bright outside. I prefer to look through the lens to see what I am shooting.
That's great, you're on the right track. Using the camera's lcd to judge with can be deceptive though you'll have tio get them on a computer in an editing program to see what's really going on. I recommend "Camera Bag 2.5" it's like $25 and it's really good......it's not Lightroom but it is quite versatile and powerful.....and cheap. It's easy for a beginner to use too. You can get the hang of it pretty quick. I have it and like it. Have FUN!!!
Hi Mike. I just shot a couple of classic trucks in a parking lot. From what I can tell in my playback on the camera, it seems to work well at the 300 zoom hand held. I could not see ANY camera shake. I'll know more after I start uploading pics. Now I have my settings where each image is captured in both jpeg & RAW. This is going to be very nice for me. I really want to learn about RAW but at the same time I can at least shoot jpeg while learning a new option for me.
Neato. I'm particularly interested as to how the 75-300mm works for you, I have a friend who is also on this site that needs one but I want to make sure it's not too soft before I get her one.
You'll enjoy the macro filters (diopters) just make sure they're squeeky clean when you put them on. I just bought myself a set to play with but I have'nt tried them yet. I've never tried a wide angle filter, let me know how it works, she might like one of those to. Have a good one!
Thanks Mike. I also got the 75 - 300 mm telephoto lens. In addition I got the fisheye & super macro items that I can screw on to the 18 - 55 mm lens & A 2x converter. There some very specific things I want to shoot. Family & vacations are not what I plan on shooting.
