The Totally Fabulous 500 Has A Bad Day!

  1. For birding that is! I decided to walk around the corner to the lake since
    the weather cleared up a bit. The birds were sparse with nothing really
    exciting. I did see a few robins, blue jays, and a few assorted tweeters.
    Even the ducks weren't out. The few bird shots I took with the TC were not
    in the sharpest focus. I'm starting to wonder if I am having AI Servo
    issues or a bad TC? It seems fine with the straight 500. I'm sure it is
    probably just pilot error on my part. All shots were handheld with and
    without IS. At least the day wasn't a total bust. I found something right
    up Bret's alley!

  2. Why, I believe the transformation is complete! Not only do you put up a
    fanboi site for Bret, you emulate his style for headers (minus the all

    Just because I wouldn't let you be my bitch.....[hic inserteth smiley] I

    That girl isn't chimping. She's using the LCD to frame the actual
    Chimping is looking at the LCD immediately after the shot.

    Now we see why you have the big lens with the 2x TC. Makes watching
    those children a lot easier without the mess of all those damn
    restraining orders, right Uncle Pervy? And the Wimberly ripoff you
    mentioned in another post .... that must be to mount in your van when
    you are parked outside the schoolyard. Just remember to crank up the
    EC to account for the tinted windows.

  4. Which she just got done taking. Since she's not taking a pic of the hand
    rail it's chimping, son.
    LOL! No, I would have bought a 600 for that. Your envy is showing again.
    If you get on your knees and hold your mouth just right I might let you
    stroke the 500.

    Chimping is looking at the image you've just taken on that little
    display on the back of the camera & going "Ooh! Ooh! Ooh."

  7. But there's really no reasonable way to tell whether you're composing the
    shot, or have already taken it, and are checking out your work.....So, it
    just refers to the way a chimpanzee will hold a camera out at partial arm's
    length rather than putting it against his face.......
