    Very nice Bret. To bad that there are some
    artifacts in the background that really are
    distracting.


    Ooops. Need to clean my monitor better.

    Nice sharp images Bret.;-)

    Getting even isn't good enough.

  3. I love the butterfly.It's gorgeous. In regards to handling, how would
    you compare the EOS-1V to the 20D?
    I have to admit it is a big thrill and convenience when shooting with
    digital, because you see the final result right away. But I'm still a
    bit stubborn, as I like something tangible as film.
    Great pics, hope to see more with the EOS-1V.

    The Fabulous EOS-1V is a bit heavier and more robust. It has a bigger,
    brighter viewfinder and much better feel than the 20D. Shooting with
    it is pure ectasy. If it had a LCD to review your images it would be
    perfect! Shooting digital sure spoils you, not only for the ability to
    see your pics quickly, but mainly for the ability to adjust exposure
    settings. But there's nothing like the tactile feel when that shutter
    clicks on the Fabulous EOS-1V.
    Of course, my first thought is always, "There goes another 50 cents."

    I've been pining for the 16MP EOS-1DsMKII for some time now.
    Then the thought hit me that I've got a nice 43MP camera sitting over
    there in the drawer.
    But scanning those slides from the Fabulous EOS-1V is such a pain!
    Gotta love the 5400x8100 image size, though.

    Tonight I'll give the computer a good workout when I make a stitched
    panorama from 4-5 images scanned at 5400 dpi. Don't know what the
    final image size will be, but it should make a nice billboard.

    You have a 20D and you are going to stitch images from a film camera,
    that is just wrong.

    Well, if you don't believe that your own photography is worth 50 measly
    cents per frame, then you shouldn't bother with it at all.

  9. I had a feeling it's an all around fantastic camera. It's a dream
    camera of mine. I heard it has 100% viewfinder as well.
    I agree that if it had an LCD to review your images it would be
    perfect.
    Thanks Bret.

    50 cents per keeper, yes. But when you shoot a couple humdred frames
    at a time, you can get into some real money.

    Even the price of my lab's slide processing has gone up. It used to be
    $8 for a 36-shot roll. Yesterday, I paid $10. Guess they have to make
    up the difference for the growing lack of demand.

    A number of reasons, first it take a number of frames to stitch and
    this is far easier to get from a digital camera then film, say you want
    to use 40 frames as an example.

    The geometry of a digital camera is better controlled then scanned film
    so the stitching will be somewhat easier.

    At the pixel level the digital image is have far less noise, this helps
    with the control point finding routines that try to match small areas
    of one image to the other.

  12. That is quite a bit.....Shutterbug here charges me $6.50 for a roll of 36
    slides.......

  13. You should put together a panorama of all your bird shots....With the
    hummers in the foreground, and the big hawks and cranes in the
    background....Send it to the Audubon society.....Maybe they will make a
    mural out of it......

  15. Ha! - Yes.....By the way....Have you seen, "Spike" recently? - If not, I
    suggest that he dropped his nail and is doing fine............

  16. I was thinking the same thing. Just curious to know how good ole Spike
    is doing. Maybe he found a good use for that nail and is catching more
    fish than he ever dreamed of. LOL

    Do you really see different pixels at that resolution? I guess it depends on
    the film...
