    Wally The Confused got a reaction from Thad E Ginathom in Which Lens?   
    As far as I know, this is the only lens, Sony advocates for video  ?
    I have no idea, since I only do stills !

    That should sort you out !

    I like the top one a lot, though I'm wondering about a tighter crop. She has great eyes and putting them on the rule of thirds brings my eye straight to them.

    You might want to think about the Loxia 21 too. I think it’s a stellar landscape lens and great for astro too. I’m only an occasional landscape shooter but here’s some of my pics with that lens.

    Wally The Confused got a reaction from Thad E Ginathom in flare nightphotografy with Tamron 28-75   
    Yes, I know,   most people think Lens Hoods, are some sort of  extraeneous  techno junk.
    Yes... I know...... I hate them too ! .........However, in certain situations........They are neccessary.
    However....
    In this photo, a lens hood, would make no difference !
    The stars from the street lights, are in the center of your photo, not some flare, on an outer edge.
    They occur, due to the placement of all the lens groups, inside your lens barrel.
    I do not think, that they detract from the image, but that is just my opinion.
    To try & avoid this again, you will have to move around & take the photo from different angles, or use a different lens.
    Good Luck

    Wally The Confused reacted to Pieter in Sony 55-210 OSS vs Sony 70-350 OSS   
    Have to agree with Wally. I started photography with an a6000 and the kit lenses (16-50 and 55-210) some 5 years ago, on a trip to South America as well (Patagonia in my case). I'm not much of a wildlife photographer (Google will generally get you much better pictures of the animal you just spotted) but for whatever wildlife I encountered there, the 55-210 served my needs. Anything up to about 20-30 m away will be close enough, unless you want full headshots. I've since bought a lot of lenses and sold the 16-50, but still have the 55-210. It's just too small and light to be replaced by something big and expensive for the very occasional wildlife I shoot. If you experiment a bit more with photography and find the 55-210 to be lacking for your needs, you can always upgrade and sell the 55-210 at hardly any loss.
    If you were going on an African safari I might have advised you to get the 70-350 instead as you really need the reach there, but in South America you'll likely have the 16-70 mounted 90% of the time and the 55-210 will be good enough when the occasion is there.

    Well, you sort of answered your own question.
    Rain forrest is dense woodland, not open prairie !
    So yes, in dense vegitation, there is no point in a 350 !
    You will be within  5 - maybe 10 meters, of anything you might want to photograph
    Also.. one point you did not mention... Weather proofing !
    In Rain Forrest... it never rains gently..... no, it  hammers down , like god is emptying his bathtub, with a bucket , right on your head !
    So, weatherproof lens, or a  readily available waterproof cover, for the whole camera.
    Ok, some do come with a clear plastic snoot, so you can take pics, in the deluges.
    Good Luck
    Oh and take waterproof clothes, like Gore Tex etc !

    Thad.. He was doing outdoor photography, in freezing conditions. He forgot , or didnt know, to keep the battery warm, to keep it working.
    Yes, you are spot on... After a day of photographing the great freezing  outdoors......it takes a while to warm up the whole camera , with the obvious misting & condensation.

    Ok I cannot  import  the original as it was 8 mb.
    However it was very good, i guess a lot of the sharp detail is lost by shrinking the image, but it works really well.
    Thanks for your help !!

    Wally The Confused reacted to Chrissie in Can Sensors be protected from Dust While Changing Lenses   
    Wally, please don't spread this kind of nonsense claims.
    Without an opening, micro or not, you would simple just be changing the internal air pressure, which would definitely not block the lens from moving.
    If you want to read up on physics, this would be a good start.
  23. Thanks
    Wally The Confused reacted to Pieter in Can Sensors be protected from Dust While Changing Lenses   
    I guess Wally is right to some extent: if a telescopic lens were airtight then extending or collapsing it would change the enclosed volume and thereby create internal under- or overpressure. The lens would pretty much act like a spring: you would be able to extend it a little bit but it would revert back to its original position when released to equalize internal and external pressure.
    That being said, like I mentioned in my previous post, it is indeed nonsense to claim that a telescopic lens pumps external air into the camera body. It does take in air when extended but this is blown out the same way when collapsed.
    Telescopic zoom lenses generally do increase the chance of getting dust inside the lens if not properly sealed against dust. Fixed barrel zoom lenses like the 70-200 G(M) and the 18-105 G don't suck in external air so much when zoomed, so these lenses are less prone to getting dust inside the lens.
  24. Thanks
    Wally The Confused reacted to Pieter in Can Sensors be protected from Dust While Changing Lenses   
    I'll have to rectify my previous post a bit: some lenses have a moving rear element, such as my E 55-210mm. The rear element moves outward when zooming in, thus creating underpressure in the sensor chamber.
    Out of pure curiosity and a scientific mindset I taped off the rear side of the lens to see if I could create a vacuum between the rear lens element and the tape. I couldn't, indicating that there must be a vent in the lens which lets in external air into the rear part (and thus into the sensor chamber). Removing the tape and holding my hand over the rear side of the lens while rapidly zooming in and out, I could feel some airflow against my hand. Air that would normally be blown right onto the sensor.
    I guess the air is sucked in through the tight seams in the lens so I wouldn't really worry about big dust particles, but it seems plausible that lenses with a moving rear element might pump some air (and dust) onto your sensor.

    Just shows you can't please everybody.  But if there is one lens drop in a couple million lens mounts and zillions of images taken, I would think that's probably pretty good design.  The "design fault" may actually be your long fingers.
