A 90 minutes drive to Stateline Lookout from Shelton. Wanted to see whether there would be some photographer’s I’ve met before there and whether there would be some Bald Eagles still. Nice Peregrine perching when I arrived. Not much else going on, so another try at Lake Tappen but besides some other birds, more […]

Another business trip to USA North-East. This time I stay in Shelton, CT. After some investigations I found 2 places which could be worth to visit for possible Bald Eagle shots, knowing that the season is already over and most of them have moved north again. In the morning hours I drove to Southbury which […]
Two other ways to pack the Tilopa. First one is to have the standard gear plus the Tamron 150-600 with me. This prepares for nearly any situation. It does fit 2 Cameras (even D800 and D4 together) Nikkor 24mm f/2.8D AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Sigma AF 15-30mm f/3,5-4,5 EX DG Aspherical Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG […]
See how to fit 2 Telezooms in the Lowepro for Helgoland trip. First option is the Nikkor 200-400 and the Sigma 150-600 S. On the Sigma a camera can be attached for transport. The Nikkor fills the entire vertical space. When using the Tamron 150-600 together with the Sigma 150-600 S, both can be transported […]
Another quick drive to Balje. Some shots taken with the D4 using the Sigma 24-105. Also, this time I had the DJI with me as I wanted to do some short clips at that location. Besides the clips, I figured that the FC200 camera can also shoot RAW, however, the small chip does not bring […]
Short trip to some previous visited locations. The Qumox ActionCam was doing a series of pictures while shooting the lighthouse. A short timelapse video could be done from them.
Unbelievable combination. The D7200 and the Sigma 150-600 S plus TC-1401 does perform so fantastic. This combo results in viewing angle of approx. 1260mm equivalent in FX. These results really open the question whether one needs to spend 8 to 10k€ for a prime lens… (still on my wishlist though :-))
Some results from shooting with the D7200 over the last days in addition to my earlier blog entry now at SmugMug having some additional and different shots.
Main reason for this crop camera is for wildlife and bird shooting. So I tried it out over the last days using it with the Tamron 150-600 and the Sigma 150-600 handhold only. The results are really impressive. Even at ISO 1600 still usable and with ISO 3200 somewhat satisfying at least for small pictures […]
