THAT would be a good question!
I suppose one would have to restrict it to mirrorless cameras with interchangeable lenses?
(I can't change lenses on my bridge, but I can use diopters on both my phone and bridge...)


That won't work. I can change lenses on my cell phone.
I can cover .04mm to 5000mm. My 'real' cameras cannot

This is an informal survey to see if enough people would be interested in a forum devoted to mirrorless cameras. It would have several purposes such as discussing gear and methods, comparing models, exchanging tips and tricks, and educating those who might want to change to mirrorless.

Post whether you think this would be worthwhile or not.


Why?

for those who know me from my recent Macro posts, also know that I recently had a lumbar fusion.
Things started going south last weekend when I thought my 2 week headache was fading.
Well it wasn't lol.
At this point I am leaking spinal fluid under the skin in my lower back.
The Dr examined and tested a fluid sample from under the skin and found it to be
almost exclusively spinal fluid.
The leak is to large for a blood patch.
So Monday the surgeon is going to remove the hardware and bone grafts in order to find the leak
and repair it.
They will be introducing fluids to keep my brain afloat during the process.
They will then attempt to install the rods and screws again if they are successful.
I can't begin to tell you all how much I am NOT looking forward to this.
I am hoping this is an easy fix, but the surgeon is not hopeful lol.
He is probably the best in the area, has 32 years experience at trauma crash surgeries.
So I do believe I am in the best hands possible.
Needless to say, photographing will be another ways off for me. Perhaps I will catch some
of the nesting season at the Rookery.

Anyone here had a nasty Dura leak ? how did it go ?
Thanks

Meningitis is the closest I have been. I feel for you, I never thought anything hurt that bad. Best to you.

Good choices. I actually thought it was the 3 remaining dwarfs trying to decide whether to jump after the first 4. The first 4 probably jumped because Snow White was down there.


Maybe ghosts of the last Indian free spirits,or Tres Amigos para siempre.

State fair.
Various with a cell and a .o4x superfisheye on my Samsung phone with a selfy stick to get realy close.
They had live birthing cows and hogs.
What a crowd.
The hog had the boy who raised her hopping to keep the newborn safe from being stepped or laid on by mom.
They look much like newborn rats, but large and mobile, and HUNGRY.
No way to get these shots with my Canon.
Rainy day. Lucky animals in barns. Hope you enjoy.

I've been on this forum for quite a while, and I'm impressed by how well it works. Basically, I have no complaints. Other forums I visit don't work as well.

Some have time limits between posts, but their program doesn't count very well. Thirty seconds can turn into an hour or more.
We don't have a minimum character limit. I don't have to type ten characters before pressing Enter.
I can post links without being warned that "This might be spam."
This site keeps running 24/7 without "technical problems."
It's easy to enter "smilies," and we have a good selection.

I could probably think of more examples, but you get the idea. UHH works as it should, and I'm sure we all appreciate that.

This site is a cut above. The people make the site, not the owners.
And there is little tolerance for misanthropes.
It has a purpose and most stick to it.
Some wish to vent and spew, most want to share and learn.

it's the only worm i have seen on the lantana, but i have a bunch of it
and it's very tall and spread out all up and down the side of the driveway.

there are a lot of the leaves that have funny looking white spots.

i hope we don't lose it...we've had it for years.


They tolerate dry soil well, but wet leaves at night allow a fungal growth. If they get watered, water in the morning and only on sunny days so leaves dry during the day.

Some info as to where to buy Helicon FB Tube, and a picture of it in action, if you get a chance, please. Bill

Thanks! In your message you wrote, “the pictures. If you attached photos taken with the scope and lenses, I did not get them.

I was unsuccessful getting any results when I googled 50x5000 sighting scope. Maybe yours is not a sighting scope but a telescope?

Could you tell me the make and model of yours? That would give me a starting place. Also, the approximate price of yours?

The scopes I’ve looked at range wildly in price.


No photos of the lenses' work. A bit later. The scope? I will try to find it. It is a made for cellphone lens.
Thanks for onterest.

I want to explore lunar photography and local wildlife/bird photography. I use an iPhone for my photos. I’ve tried DSLR several times in the past unsuccessfully. Also, iPhone is physically easier for me to manage...and ALWAYS there 😊

I’d like guidance about which sighting scope to use for both moon and rather close wildlife. Maybe one won’t work for both?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I hope this gets to both interested partys. These are what I use with my cell phone camera.
The red lens is a 50x, 5ooomm?
Unless solid, no vibration, no go..
The selfy stick and parts are a start.
The six extra lenses are mostly fisheyes.
The inside of the phone case shows modification.
There are many clipons and cases on line. Look deep. Not expensive.
The pictures.

Notice his license plate was left at the scene of the accident. Of course, he probably did not know that.

To qualify for the Darwins you do not have to die(it helps) but you MUST remove yourself from the gene pool.
So, it the Sargent dead or neutered?

I was outside late yesterday evening when I
discovered this tomato worm on my lantana..


The Lantana leaves look partly eaten.
The horn worm do it?
They eat a toxic plant already.
Would be a possible first.

Do you know what species?


The poster is in Maryland, and Maryland has only one hummingbird, the Rubty Throated.This hummingbird is over most of the US east of the Mississippi, the largest range of any in US.
They migrate and are proven to return to same place each summer, thus the same families return yearly to YOUR feeder.

Sorry Bill, they migrate in winter. We can only enjoy them during summer and fall.


I live in Annapolis. They migrate to here, too.
Few north of Fla and Texas and Arizona, are year round residents in US.

This is a nymph stage of an insect that I do not know. It's about 2 millimeters in length and I had to rest it on a pin for it was too small to stick with an size #000 mounting pin as I typically do.

If anyone knows what species this is please share it with me.

I used a 50mm reverse mounted enlarger lens mounted on a 30 to 90 millimeter helicoid extension tube that I could extend or retract to bring the entire subject into view.

Thanks in advance to all those who view and for your comments, suggestions, questions and critique.

I second Mark.
But I have another question.
What is the tube you use for focus? I find helical tubes on Ebay but not sure which is suitable. Seems like a bellows would work.
