I said I’d do one more and here it is. Unsurprisingly, the FunLeader is somewhat less fun when trying to photograph racing Lurchers :D

I understand this is a bug/miscommunication in the forum software.
I've seen it happen on other forums as well.

Not always but always from the same users if I'm not mistaken. The fact you mentioned "uploaded from an iPad", triggered a memory. I believe it is somehow connected to iPad or iPhone.

Perhaps just the upload or perhaps the editing on that class of device?

I wondered if it was that. Maybe I’ll stick to uploading from my desktop in the future. Thanks. 


I didn’t use the FunLeader lens yesterday! :D I usually only take one lens out with me and yesterday a really wanted to get some pics of the dogs in action so I took the 65/2 instead. However, I did start the challenge a day or two late, so I’ll see what I can do today and see if I can find something different to finish on.

 

l love this lens but due to the restrictions it imposes - wide angle of view, fixed aperture and fixed, hyperfocal, focus, it has been challenging to use it every day for a month and still try to vary the style a bit. I’d have liked to have thrown a bit of street photography and indoor event stuff into the mix but Covid restrictions and the fact that I don’t live in a teaming metropolis have put paid to that idea.

So the Sigma FP has 6 very comprehensive custom settings in its mode menu. There used to be only 3 but they added 3 more in the last firmware update. One of mine is set for the FunLeader in square format and monochrome - you know, for those days when you want to pretend you’ve got a classic Hasselblad! Anyway, today I used that.

You’ll need to look at this full size to see what got Bedlington Bod so excited! The Sigma FP & Funleader are not made for spontaneous wildlife action!
