CHECKING OUT MY NEW LENS

20170908_181541

I know that I’ve Posted this Image before, but today I took it out again and gave it a try to see how the Images would come out.  In messin’ around with it, I found that the Lens is very sensitive to touch & any small vibration will cause the camera to shake just a bit, but enough to blur my Image.  With this big Lens set at 480mm, it will be necessary to use a Remote Shutter Release.  This way there will be no shake  .   .  .  .  I hope!

Ok, so I went over to one of my favorite places where I could get some distance shooting with the long Lens.  The first shot’s I took were at a subject way “out there” using the 800mm setting.  The shake was even worse out that far!  Didn’t like what I saw, so I deleted what showed up.  The one above was taken from the Bridge above the Lake, looking down.  It was about 40 yds. away.  This came out better using the 480mm setting.  Not all that clear, but it’s acceptable for me.  I’ll keep working with this Lens and see more of what it does.  BTW –  The leaves around here are just starting to change a bit.  Nothing eye catching just yet.  Too early.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

    1. Not sure if I can do that with this Lens. I can’t change the f/stop at all. It’s a fixed f/8,0. We’ll see what I can do. Thank you, Milfordstreet.
