Camera talk










Why I want a telephoto lens...After cropping down the pictures, this is as good as they get. That's a coyote and two deer.



I did have some that turned out last week.



Am figuring out that after squinting one eye for about 20 minutes to look through the viewfinder, the eye that I squint gets a little blurry. Am going to have to get used to that. Does this happen to anyone else with a DSLR?

Also finally realized that when shooting outside I should take off my polarized sunglasses or I'll be disappointed when I upload the pictures. I did buy a neutral-density filter and polarizing filter--hence the vignetting in the last picture. I have at least three filters on the lens.

Hey, I'm weird too and readily admit it!!

I have a camera I'm less than thrilled with at the moment, not enough pixels resolution.

I think a telephoto lens is not over-rated, on my list of things I covet.

I would love a new camera too. Except that I can always think of something else more practical that I could spend the money on. Like saving money for a car or something...
