    At cross roads

    I have a 7DMarkii that is diagnosed with a faulty motherboard. The camera is well used and inspite of having serviced it at a cost of 500dollar US some time back it now needs a major overhaul to keep. I think this is not an option. It has served me well for 5 years now. I also have 100-400mm...

    XLR recorder

    Hi I have used Olympus LS12 with ME66 for some time now. The problem with the cable is very persistent. Much like regular earphones they break very easily. Is this a problem that would go away using a recorder with XLR ability? If so, what is a recommended device? I use my gear for birds...

    Tripod head and plate for my KOWA scope

    I have 3 tripods....all of them with that one screw to hold the scope in place. All of them come loose all the time when in the field. I have a KOWA TSN 883...... Besides drilling a hole in the foot of the scope and the plate is there another solution? This must be a common problem. Pete

    DOF with 1.4 and 2.0

    Someone told me that the two above mentioned extenders give the same dof when used on a 600mm lens. Since one gives a focal length of 840 and the other 1200 shouldn't the dof be more shallow with the 2.0? (using the same aperture) Peter

    MM3 50mm

    I recently did two back to back tours to Sulawesi/Halmahera in Indonesia. This was my 1st time with this small scope and light weight tripod. To sum it up, I was more then pleased. Very easy to get the bird in view and focus, clear image, easy to carry around. Greatly suited for forest and...

    Sennheizer Me66/K6 recording weak on one channel

    I would greatly appreciate any advice. I recently got a Sennheiser Me66/K6 from someone this forum. The device look in good shape and has not been used much as I understand it. I use it with an Olympus LS12. The LS records equally on both channels but with the Me66 one channel records a lot...

    Refurbish or not?

    My Nikon 82 mm ED is no longer crisp. I wonder is it possible that the coating wears off or is it simply no longer up to standard? Next to my new Opticron MM3 50 it is like looking through a dim glass. Is it possible to refurbish a scope like this? Is the problem with the lens or the eyepiece...

    external mike or not?

    Today almost went to buy the Sennheiser Mke 600 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=sennheiser+mke+600&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ps Then it struck me that 'why am I really getting this"? My conclusion is that the mike should be able to pick up sounds that are further away better then my...

    Sennheiser MKE600

    I am seriously not good at knowing what my needs are. I still use the Olympus LS12 and now have decided to buy an external mike. I wrote to B&H for advice as to what a complete set would be with birds in mind. Here is their reply So, does anyone know anything about the MKE600? Can anyone...

    external mic

    Anyone can give me a suggestion of microphone to go with my Olympus LS-12? This one is available in Bangkok at 375US$ but I think it might be better suited for music? Sennheiser e-614 Peter

    Itunes and Ipod

    I have used Ipod 4 for a couple of years now. Very handy thing indeed. My main problem is that my many bird song files don't line up in alphabetic order. I have renamed all the files but the program still seem to read the 'old embedded' names. I have renamed then in Itunes but still when I...

    Hiss or no hiss?

    I have now learned how to get rid of the hiss on my bird recordings. I am not sure what is the common approach to this? Some folks seem to prefer the hiss and others leave it out.....any advice? I wish I could post the same recording with and without for you to listen to but I don't know where...

    Olympus Ls12 - advice needed

    I just got the Ls12. Can someone in a few simple steps tell me how to work it, please? I don't want to use external mike or even external speaker unless I have to. I want to record and play back immediately while in the field. Any tips or advice would be much appreciated. Peter

    7D firmware

    I bought a 7D about 6 months back. Haven't updated any firmware. Do I update only the latest update or do I update all of them? Thank you for helping.. Peter

    Should I upgrade?

    I have now used the 350D and the 30D for a long long time. Both cameras are still functional and thus I haven't felt it justified to get anything newer. I use 400 F5.6 and am not planning to change. Will a 7D deliver better images? I know about the AF and surely that would be a blessing for...

    BIG question!

    For the last 2 months I kept my Nikon ED 82 in the trunk of my car. Big mistake! Yesterday when I pulled it out (I have been using it inbetween) the scope was in 2 pieces! Right next to the focus ring there are 3 internal screws that had given away due to the vibrations of the car ( I presume)...
