Re: Home built steam engine.

Fiddle about, fiddle about....you have to love tinkerers. Seems like it's a lost art/ambition. I am not sure what kids do these days. I was building minibikes when I was twelve and rode with no helmet. I suppose that stuff is too dangerous these days. You can't even buy gasoline for a can in China; ...

Re: They finally caught up with me

What a motley crew. Belt on upside down? You really know your stuff Gedee. Another one for the album Rod! Looks like it was a good day!

Re: Fallow deer in the long grass.

Last IC engine? Why are you going to pollute the environment with all of those toxic metals in the batteries, environmental destruction in the mining of those metals and disposal issues? I've got a 5.0 L Ford V8 in the truck; it's been good so far. Beemers aren't the highest quality and aren't good ...

Re: Fallow deer in the long grass.

I knew the Kilo thing Rod, but, hey, stuff happens. We use Kilos in China. Whatever you're comfortable with is all that matters. That's why I am getting another body that's the same. I keep two bodies, and I never use the other one due to the smaller sensor and ergonomics; I like the EM1 II. You'll ...

Re: Fallow deer in the long grass.

Yup - 4/3 takes a beating, but I am used to it. Those stills that I got with the crane, grouse and waxwing were nice. With the IBIS, I am shooting 840mm at 1/250 like a point-and-shoot. BIF's are a it trickier, but that's the price you pay or don't pay. I am shooting in the rain or below-freezing wi...

Re: Fallow deer in the long grass.

Nice shot Rod. The deer seems a bit soft, but it was a poke for your lens. I am not sure what you can do about weight; It looks like everything is in the 3-4 lb range. It's all a matter of preference and what you like to do. If you want wildlife, you may want to drop down to a 300mm and use a TC for...

Re: At and to and from the camp

Thanks Rod! It was a decent day. I live in a fairly wild place, and you get desensitized to things after a while. The U.P of Michigan is a beautiful place, and I am very lucky to live here. As the camp progresses and recovers from the timber harvest, I am hoping to get some hides set up for more wil...

Re: At and to and from the camp

Thanks Gedee and Matt! I was doing some roadside shooting. The grouse was tending to her chicks, so she was not going anywhere. I only had my 300mm with the 1.4 tc on, so I had to wait for the crane to get far enough away to fit it in frame. I was quite please with how the kit performed in the rain....
