    Looking for suggestions on mirrorless camera and associated lenses

    Canon EF lenses generally adapt extremely well to the RF mount, AF and all. Even some third party EF lenses adapt well - there are many people out there who use the popular and relatively cheap Sigma 150-600 C alongside the Canon R5, R6 or R7, and find great success with the bird eye AF, even...

    First time binocular buyer, getting myself all tied up in knots

    I ended up going with the Nikon Monarch 7 (not M7) 8x30 for CAD364+tx! (USD270) For me, a binocular noob, this is an extremely nice little pair of bins for what seems to be a really good price. I couldn't find any of the other comparable bins in this category for even close to that price. I was...

    SFL 8x30 and Kidney Beaning

    Oh, useful thread. I just got myself a pair of bins (monarch 7 8x30) and i have the same problem. While wearing sunglasses and using them they're absolutely fine and extremely nice, but with no glasses, i struggle. My eyes are way too close and i get all those black blobs. I'll have to see what...

    First time binocular buyer, getting myself all tied up in knots

    First time binocular buyer, getting myself all tied up in knots

    Thanks for all the replies and thoughts and opinions! Hah, yes, I’m familiar with only making myself more and more confused doing research and reading forums from my time buying photography equipment.. anything to do with glass and optics eh. The Regal ED hadn’t really been on my radar, I saw...

    First time binocular buyer, getting myself all tied up in knots

    I'll try to keep this shortish and to the point! I've been doing bird photography for years and I've really enjoyed seeing birds through a long camera lens (current setup is a Sigma C 150-600 attached to a Canon R6), but recently went on a field trip with a group of birders, one of whom was kind...

    Hi from Eastern Canada!

    Hi all! I've been into birds for pretty much my whole life but as I grew up in New Zealand, i really mostly know those birds. I recently moved to eastern Canada and I'm having a good time learning about all the different birds that exist here and seeing many for the first time! I'm primarily a...
