#74540 Your best photo of the week ending August 1 2021

Posted by PebblzNnutz on Yesterday, 10:36 PM

Weather has been pretty wet here for the last month or so with just a few days of sun. I haven't been taking any photos worth posting here until a couple days ago when the sun finally came out long enough to go take a few photos of these Rough-legged Hawk chicks.




A few weeks ago there were two chicks in the nest. A Crested Auklet is the menu for the chick.

4 of 5 chicks left from this nest. 5 chicks is the most I've ever seen in one nest but, this is the first time I came upon this one. The other nest usually had 2 at the most.

#74539 Is it better for the battery life to turn the camera off after each shot?

Posted by PebblzNnutz on Yesterday, 09:59 PM

Nikon claims that leaving d5300 on does not consume battery. That's a lie.
I added a power grip with 2 batteries to mine and can happily shoot hundreds over 2 days no problem
Maybe you can add a grip to yours?

The B600 doesn't have a grip accessory. It has extra batteries for about $28 though.

#74538 zeikos polarizer makes pictures blury

Posted by PebblzNnutz on Yesterday, 09:58 PM

Hi, is it a common knowledge or is my filter having an issue?

The blurriness is very light but visible on comparative shots right on the camera screen, and I don't even have to zoom to the max


Probably. Post a couple photos, one with the polarizer and one without, taken one after each other of the same subject for a better answer.

If the weather doesn't clear up in the next couple days, I don't think I'll get anything better than this female Rough-legged Hawk.

It's been a long while since I've seen ice linger around this late.

One of the more unusual spring migrants so far.

#71396 Card slot question

Posted by PebblzNnutz on 01 January 2021 - 04:27 PM

It's because the image quality is set to NEF (RAW). So, you will also need to choose the quality of the JPEG version in Menu > Photo Shooting Menu > Image Quality. e.g. NEF (RAW) + JPEG normal.

#67245 Yesterday's Weather

Posted by PebblzNnutz on 05 April 2020 - 07:08 PM

Yesterday's weather was a great time to stay indoors but, for some people that needed to get somewhere, it didn't stop them.

#65341 20mm Lens for Nikon D3500

Posted by PebblzNnutz on 15 November 2019 - 02:04 AM

Either the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED or the Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Nikon F should work on your D3500. If you want to use your older 20mm AF lens you could return the D3500 and get one of the D7xxx bodies. Either way you choose you'll be spending about the same amount of money to use a 20mm lens

Well, this is getting pretty annoying to say the least. The Interim Postmaster hasn't flown over to open the Post Office yet. She said she'd come over last Friday but postponed it to Monday, then to today and now to Sunday. At least I have my D7200 but would've liked to have had the D500 when I went for a walk the other day. 
Her's a few from my walk around the bone yards.

#64811 How to remove AF Area Brackets on playback

Posted by PebblzNnutz on 10 October 2019 - 11:45 PM

Try looking at a setting in Menu > Playback Menu > Playback display options. One of them should be "focus point" or something like that.
