Urban Wildlife

Around here we have squirrels, mice, rats, chipmunks, opossums, raccoons, the occasional adventurous whitetail (and so presumably ditto for coyotes), rabbits, and lazy semiferal cats who are apparently too well-fed by the locals to predate heavily on the smaller fauna. Here's Peter Cottontail in the neighbor's front lawn yesterday afternoon. Fortunately I had the 18-200mm on the Nikon D2X, because the bunnies survive around here by being super skittish and bolting at even a hard glance. The on...

Automotif CCLXXV...

I really dig the S4, and the B8 generation of S4 ('09-'16) might be my favorite in the looks department. Previous generations had used a gonzo 4.2L five-valve-per-cylinder V8, but the B8 replaced that with a supercharged 3.0L V6 putting out more power and avoiding the EPA's gas guzzler tax in the process. Photo with a Nikon D800 & 24-120mm f/4. . [Author: Tam]

Feral

I was out walking the other day and ran across this handsome fella... One of the neighborhood ferals (well, quasi-ferals), chillin' on a pile of lumber in a neighbor's back yard near one of the entrances to the Monon Trail. He didn't seem terribly skittish, but I didn't want to spook him from his resting place, so I got about as close as felt comfortable and let the 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens on the Nikon D2X do the rest of the work. Yesterday I went for a walk with Bobbi and followed...

Diva

Molly was in her silver years and a bit hard of hearing, but once she figured out what was going on, she was more than willing to bust a pose or two for my Nikon D700 & AF Nikkor 70-210mm f/4. (I was shooting from a dozen or more feet away in Aperture Priority at f/5.6 to get good subject separation from the background.) . [Author: Tam]

Bargain Bin Shootout

If the end of the beginning for serious digital photography was the 1999 launch of the Nikon D1, the first all in-house digital single lens reflex camera from one of the Big Two Japanese camera makers, then the beginning of the end for film SLRs was in 2003. It was triggered by a digital SLR price war caused by Canon's launch of the EOS 300D. Known in the U.S. as the Digital Rebel, the 300D sported the 7-point autofocus system and 6.1MP sensor like that on Canon's semi-pro EOS 10D, but wher...

Grand Power Stribog 9mm Carbine Pistol – Video Review

Grand Power Stribog U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Grand Power is known for its innovative pistols featuring rotating barrels and ambidextrous controls.  What hasn’t been widely known in the US until recently was their development of the Stribog sub-machine gun and personal defense weapon.  Just recently released in the US is the SP9A1 in pistol form. Since I’m sure you’re wondering about the name, “Stribog” is the name of an ancient Slavic god of storms and force.  Stribog was responsible not just...

Midwest Industries Marlin 1895 Picatinny Scope Rail Review

Although known for their more modern firearm accessories, Midwest Industries also makes mounts for older guns like this Marlin 1895. IMG Jim Grant U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Last year I was inspired to ditch my AR-15 for a Marlin 1895. See, I shot a mid-sized doe with an AR-15 firing a supersonic 300blk round designed specifically for that purpose; Problem is, even with a broadside angle on the deer and shot placement behind the shoulders, the doe still managed to run 60 yards before expiring. To...

Costco Optical vs Walmart Vision Center

Sixty-one percent of Americans have corrective lenses. Many find a change in prescription requires new glasses annually (my wife could probably use some). This can be a significant portion of a family’s budget each year, especially if multiple family members require glasses to see properly. Walmart and Costco are two places generally associated with a good deal. Of course, I’m a fan of Costco myself. So, I decided to take dive into Costco Optical vs Walmart Vision Center and how the two compare...

Artists are Weird

It's not at all uncommon to see black electrical tape plastered over the "Nikon" logo on a camera's viewfinder hump or the red dot on the front of a Leica. The various reasons given for this range from the understandable to the bizarre. I've heard people say they do it to make the camera less conspicuous, and that makes sense. The bold white block letters or red circle on a black background do make a camera more likely to draw the eye, which is anathema when doing candid work. Still, if you...

Retrotech.

I've got a 20-year-old DSLR out for the other other blog, and the first thing I'm reminded of is how spoiled we are for good batteries these days. The D1X uses nickel-metal hydride battery packs, which not only slowly self-discharge over time, but also don't have near the energy density of newer lithium-ion batteries. In order to wring maximum life out of one of the big batteries, I turn off the automatic review function. Not chimping the pictures immediately after shooting gives an oddly fi...

Guns and Stuff

Over at The Arms Room is a fresh Sunday Smith that looks at the Model 3913.It's interesting that with the introduction of the 3913 at the close of the Eighties, Smith decided that the future of full-size 9mm single-stacks was over. The 3904 and 3906 were promptly discontinued, and only the 59xx double-stack full-size nine millimeters carried on. At the time, it was probably the right decision. Single-stack full-size 9x19mm pistols were a tough sell in the early Nineties. But only a couple years ...

Super Blue Blood Moon in northern California

I'm not sure why I woke up so early this morning, but I was up and reading various things on my smartphone and was reminded about today's eclipse of the moon. The eclipse was supposed to start not long after I was reading about it, and thinking that the maximum in my area was going to be at 4:51 am — which is actually when the total phase of the eclipse was going to start — I rushed outside with a headlamp and my phone to see if I'd be able to see it. While out there, I got the first photo, abo...

Sharper than Sharp

A phrase I'd heard and had found myself repeating uncritically was that regarding high-megapixel camera sensors "out-resolving" the lenses that were on them. It came to mind again recently when I saw stuff like this. That Six-Four Impala was shot with a 36MP Nikon D800 using a mid-'90s vintage Nikon 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-D lens. At first glance, it looks okay, but blow up to full screen or (worse) start pixel peeping at 100% magnification and something's...off. The lines of the car have a bi...

Zoom!

If there's one thing that defines a certain kind of photographer, it's a disdain for zoom lenses. If one is old enough to remember the early days of the zoom lens, it's understandable to have a bad taste in your mouth about them. The early ones gave up a lot of image quality for the sake of having a variable focal length. Even today, the best zooms aren't quite the optical equal of the best primes if you look at something like the data at DxOMark. The differences in actual results are a lot le...

Nikon Z MC 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens Review: A Solid Introduction to Macro

The Nikon 50mm f/2.8 Macro Prime lens is part of a pair announced in June. While the lens is designated as a macro, the 50mm focal length makes it more of a walkabout lens with macro capabilities.While Nikon’s legacy macro lenses would still work using the FTZ adapter on the Z-System, the new lenses note another step of Nikon’s promise to deliver a wider range of native functionality lenses on its mirrorless systems. Nikon designed this new lens to be a small, lightweight, and compact everyday l...

Deep impact: the underwater photographers bringing the ocean’s silent struggle to life

Kerim Sabuncuoğlu – just one winner in this year’s Ocean photography awards – tells the story behind his picture of a moray eel that also shows the wider perils of ‘ghost fishing’In July, off the Turkish port city of Bodrum, Kerim Sabuncuoğlu stepped from the edge of a boat into the azure Aegean Sea and began to descend. A scuba diver with more than 30 years’ experience, he took up underwater photography in 2002 and has since devoted considerable amounts of time and money to his “out-of-control ...
