Cedras... welcome to the forum...

I checked your flicker and there are some really nice photos there... I'm looking forward to see more from you.
How small is small?
Well, if it's bigger than 23x16mm, then it is huge!

I really messed up my first attempt at posting here; theme: Bodie Ghost Town, I would like to make amends and start all over. There is so much more to this site than the homepage. I'm glad I was directed to this starter thread.
I'm a life long Minolta guy. I have only owned Minolta's. That life I believe spans Minoltas "Hey day". My first camera was the SRT 101 f 1.1:2 Which I bought new I believe was Minoltas first very successful SLR and 1 of the cameras that started the Japanese camera revolution.
When I heard Minolta was going out of business I went and bought their final camera, the Maxxum 5D, which i still have. It's sad that the copyright maxxum is a main reason they did go out of business, Exxon sued them and won millions for using their copyrighted double XX.
My current camera is Minoltas successor Sony and its a6000. I'm not a studio guy, I'm landscape and I'm blessed w having much of western USA as my landscape. My fun is the doing part, not that much the processing aspect. The Sony a6000 fits into my needs of traveling as lite as possible.
I'm going to go back and clean up as much of my Bodie post as possible.
                                    This is Yosemite Falls, an example of what I do



It Worked!    I'm going to come back & post pics of my equipment, some of it might be interesting.   Coast

Like I said a life long Minolta Guy: My Minolta X570 w Rokkor MC f 1:1.4 58mm I bought new and still have


BTW this is the computer for the camera

My Minolta Maxxum 5D, The Last Minolta camera. Those above Yosemite photos were taken w this, a crop 6 meg sensor & kit 18-70 macro zoom lens. I think the quality is very good. I'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between the a6000 w Zeiss 16-70mm unless you enlarged



My a6000 package w 55-210mm $750 last year @ a Best Buy store


w the 55-210mm


w the Zeiss 16-70mm


Took this photo 6/24/15 w the above setup, a6000, Rokkor MC (Max Bokeh)

This is the very first shot I took with my A58, a few weeks ago. At this point, I was not thinking about anything other than getting the camera set up and learning where the controls were, so this is pretty rough. But there are a few things here that I plan to re-visit later.

[EDIT: Oops, it looks like it still came out a little large. Need to re-check my Graphic Converter settings.]

There is a first for everything Hannu. You can post 1042 pixels wide, that is a fair bit more than you have just done. I hope to see more of your work.

Welcome Hannu, I agree with Paul (Snegren), nice picture and you can post a lot bigger without any problems. Looking forward to more!
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Hello everyone, first post and all that .... :)

New to digital photography, so taking my first photos. Mainly interested in birding right now, but I'm sure I will try other types of photos, and think I'll go do all the Lessons as well.

Here is a red-shouldered hawk that lives in my neighborhood. Got some pics of him up high in a perch, on the roof of my house, and then down on the ground to capture a big grub (have photo of it in his beak!). But I liked this pic because it was a little different view, and it lets you identify the hawk specie since you can't really see the tail (the other big identifier) and know it's not it's look-alike, the red-tailed hawk.



Sony A77, Minolta 300mm at f7.1 and 1/1000, ISO 200

Hope you like!!   But if I wanted C&C, what forum would I go to?

Thanks again!!

AndrewP (everyone calls me "AP")

@AndrewP: Welcome to Dyxum, AP! With that red shoulder so prominent, it looks like he was posing for you. You have some great detail in this photo. Perhaps you can share some of your other shots here.

Cheers... Brian

@Kumweni: Welcome to Dyxum, Kumweni! I like the dramatic contrast. There appears to be some horizontal banding, particularly visible at the bottom of the clouds (perhaps an artifact of resizing?)

Cheers... Brian
