  1. I've saved and just uploaded all three races (Dragon's Trail, Bathurst, Nurburgring GP). Should be able to see them on my username (Hask_NL), I've also added the tag "rllmuk". I'll need to rewatch them myself, specially interested in what happened at the front at Bathurst. The first features me horrendously holding up Batmobile for as long as I could, if you need a laugh
  2. You're using the cross-button for throttle? Perhaps try using the right-trigger (R2)? Then you can at least try partial throttle (takes a bit of a steady hand) Same goes for braking, but then that set the for L2-trigger. At least, that's what I use on controller
  3. Not taking into account the cam in use, I would say to take into account the braking/distance markers before the corners (before they're punted off :P). And no worries, it IS hard - especially at tracks you've never been before!
  4. Got close with 1:13.660 but no more time. Congrats! Took me quite a while to get a bit quicker on Mount Panorama - awesome track, but very tricky!
  5. No idea, we were talking about this yesterday in the race last night coincidentally. I don't think I'm faster with the pedals/steering tbh. It is a lot more fun though (after the initial getting used to it). Also stuff like easing off the brakes and throttle-control in corners does become easier - i.e. granular controlling is easer. Personally I'm using the Logitech G29 btw - I like it, not too expensive and seems robust for the price.
  6. Oftentimes, your camera manufacturer has software which will do this. It's just, in my experience, not as easy or thought out as well as Lightroom. Though, colours could certainly be better. For example, Canon has Digital Photo Professional: https://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/software/digital-photo-professional.aspx Sony has Imaging Edge, which just has had an update: https://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/app/imagingedge/en/download/ Etc. I've also used darktable in the past, but found it a bit clunky, could be better now: https://www.darktable.org/
  7. Great photos all, some fantastic shots on this page! Black Headed Gull - HSK_6211
  8. I always thought those puffins were in Northern America somewhere, didn't even know they were in the UK - would definitely do it if you're able to!
  9. Some pigeon-shots: Pigeon - HSK_9937 on Flickr Pigeon - HSK_9950 on Flickr Pigeon - HSK_9906 on Flickr
  10. Great pics all I'll participate with some Rook shots. This is the first time I've actually been able to get some shots from relatively close-by and somewhat good light, usually they just flee at the slightest sight of me - impossible to get really close.

  11. Yup, or to be more specific: it supports f8-focussing, which is really the nice thing. All Canon-camera's will support extenders, but most will not autofocus past f5.6 which is where f8-focusing bodies such as the 5DmkIII, 7DmkII and 1D-bodies come in. Do note that autofocus will be impacted when using an extender, usually slower and less and/or less accurate AF-points will be used, and image quality will be impacted as well of course because an extender contains glass elements. The extend (ha!) to which said quality is impacted will depend on the extender and lens quality.
  12. Nice gear! Would love to have an f8 focusing body too
  13. Do note that most of that page is about the Sigma Sport, rather than Contemporary
  14. Thanks! And of course: I bought it here in the Netherlands at a large retailer, in August 2014 - so quite a while back already Didn't use it that much in the meantime to be honest, mainly due to weather (it's a lens which needs plenty of light) - I might as well have waited a couple of months. Oh well. You've got the 400mm 5.6 L right? I´ve never used it, but I hear it´s one of the best birding lenses due to fast autofocus. I´d definitely look into the Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary as well if looking at the Tamron, it's got some more modes and the capability of using the Sigma Dock. Sharpness is supposed to be pretty equal between the two. Another advantage is the specific support for teleconverters, though your body must of course support f8 focusing. When I bought the Tamron, the Sigma wasn't yet announced - but today I'd definitely take a second look. Not saying I'm not happy with the Tamron though
