    I guess they don't have 1.4x TC's down under? Duh.

    Then that would make the lens range 98 to 280. Canon cameras (even the
    professional models) with Mk I Canon 70 - 200 lenses and Kenko adaptors
    often do not intercept the multiplication factor.

    I can only presume a Canon adaptor either doesn't send the information
    or being an entry level FF camera, the 5D doesn't process all the lens data.

    Why would you think that? The EXIF was correctly identified as 210mm
    on one pic and 280 on another. Just as it should be.

    Focus distance = ???? Nothing or zero or infinity or what?
    It doesn't matter with a photo like this with nothing as a background
    but if you tried to build a DOF blur overlay, (mask to you) you couldn't
    do it properly without that critical piece of information. You'd just
    end up with a bad case of Tennessee blur whilst trying to lose unwanted
    background objects.

    Perhaps having a lake near your home where wild(?) birds build nests
    next to car parks at a height a human could easily raid the nest from
    might not fit your idea of a zoo mate but if the bird is tame enough to
    expose it's young to close human contact, it's close enough to the
    description of many Australian and African zoos to be considered one.

    In case you haven't kept up with how modern zoos are being developed...
    The current thinking is that if you provide a habitat where wild animals
    feel safe, you can eventually bring humans into close contact with them.
    Zoos in this century don't need bars or boundaries, just freedom from
    those humans who would harm the animals.

    It's like my marine photos mate... Not taken in an aquarium but the
    natural habitat of the creatures I photograph. In Marine parks around
    Australia to be sure and for which I have Government permits to take
    tourists into, make movies and take still photos I can legally sell.

    No bars, no walls, no glass cases, no zoo like environment. People fish
    right alongside my boat as I and my clients dive for photos.

    Yeah, sometimes you get lucky. When I lived in NY, there was a Federal
    wildlife area, one of the roads, had a power pylon that raptor had
    built a nest in. Most people would drive by and never see the bird.
    Used to get decent shots of the nest until mom would get a bit
    flustered then I'd leave.


    Kids were always ugly. reminded me of a wedding photographer that's on
    another group.....

    Sometimes the birds figure you're never going to be able to get close
    enough to be a threat. Then they just ignore you as you shoot. That's
    when it makes up for the times you know you're never going to get the
    shot.

    Does that also change the sky from white to blue?

    No, I used the Pbase sky filter for that!

    What the heck is a "DOF blur overlay?"
    Is that what you have to do when you shoot with a crappy point and
    shoot like your Crapasonic that has maximum DOF at every aperture?

    I prefer to control DOF the old-fashioned way, by the lens aperture
    setting.
    Buy a decent camera and a decent lens and then you won't have to try
    to simulate real DOF with silly magic tricks.

    Hold on Bret...
    You're starting to sound like some backwoods good old boys who bought
    himself a camera (like a 5D Mk II) he hasn't figured out how to use but
    keeps posting unimaginative, over sharpened falsely blurred (Tennessee
    blur according the Mr and Mrs Larry thong) images of tame animals.

    Keep going and you never know, Nat Geo might start a new magazine and
    call it something like: Wildlife at the Zoo! just for you. ROTFL.

    Hey didn't you tell me a couple of years ago how good a golfer your
    were/are? 21st in the PGA isn't quite quite a stellar performance to
    back your words up with proof, is it?.

    You're behind the times mate. I moved on up from a Crapasonic to a
    Kodak. Sharing Kodak moments is a pleasure you simply wouldn't understand!

    I finished 21st in the PGA?
    Cool!

    I like these new delusions of yours better than the old ones, D-Mac.

    "I finished 21st in the PGA?

    I'll say! You're ahead of some pretty prestigous players like Retief
    Goosen, Stewart Cink, Nick Watney, Robert Allenby, K.J. Choi, Trevor
    Immelman, Rory Sabbatini just to name a few.

    Seriously, not such a foolish notion nor is it far fetched. I've seen
    him play D-Mac and I'd bet big bucks he'd qualify in a pinch.

    OK so I mistook lots of mentions of PGA Professionals and your past
    bullshit in the article I read. I also thought because Don Malarkey teed
    the ball it was a PGA meet. That's what speed reading does for you. I
    didn't even know he'd retired!

    "22nd Bret DOUGLAS(A) Chattanooga, TN 76 72 148 +6"

    It's buried here: http://www.chattanoogan.com/articles/article_71298.asp

    Judging by these results, you'd never make the cut at a PGA tournament,
    much less mix it with the real golfers.
