Excited! BAA Bulletin #312, and help needed...

This image was created with the Canon 180mm macro lens and the EOS-1D MIII. Canopy Lodge, Panama. See below for needed help <smile> As always, you can click on the image to see a larger, sharper version.

On Wednesday of last week I got my brand new Canon EOS-7D.   And on Friday afternoon I received (just in the nick of time) my two Canon EOS-1D Mark IV bodies.  I have been busy packing and getting ready to head to San Diego for the IPT and then a week-long busman’s holiday.  It is cold and clear here at my office/home in Indian Lake Estates, FL this morning but I will not have any time to go down to the lake to try out my three new toys.  I hope to have time to set up a tripod in the driveway and do the focus calibration for each camera with a variety of lenses.  That will take a few hours.   As I have never made a trip before with three brand new cameras I am very excited!

Bulletin #312

BIRDS AS ART Bulletin #312 is on-line and can be accessed here:  http://www.birdsasart.com/2010/01/06/birds-as-art-bulletin-312.
Here are the featured items:

  • HAPPY NEW YEAR WISHES AND BAA INF
  • HOME AT LAST BUT NOT FOR LONG
  • POSSE NEWS: JIM NEIGER
  • JPI BRADENTON GEORGE LEPP EVENT
  • BPN HOT THREADS
  • MONGOOSE NEWS
  • SAN DEIGO IPT VERY LATE REGISTRATION DISCOUNT

  • Here is where I could use a bit of help:   I have spent the last two days creating titles for the 34 images that will comprise my upcoming Canon USA-sponsored exhibit at Bok Tower in nearby Lake Wales.  I am pretty happy with nearly all of the titles.  Several friends including Todd Gustafson, James Shadle, Jim Heupel, and BPN Out-of-the-Box moderator Denise Ippolito pitched in with some creative  stuff.

But I am least happy with the title for the Red-eyed Tree Frog image above.  If you have any suggestions, please e-mail me (no later than 5pm Sunday, January 10) at samandmayasgrandpa@att.net.  Thanks!

    Artie,

    Please share your experience in calibrating the focus on your three new camera bodies and the amount of adjustment that was required.

    Thanks,
    Grover

    • Hi Grover, I had heard that most folks are coming up with zero so I have not yet calibrated either body and the good stuff looks killer sharp. I may do it when I get home and have a bit of time.
