    Update

    More updates on Sungei Buloh Outing:

    SUNGEI BULOH OUTING

    Date: 30th May 2009, Saturday
    Meeting Time/Place: 7.30am @ Woodlands MRT
    We will be heading to a coffeeshop for a good if possible heavy breakfast before heading to SBWR.


    Possible Photography Opp:
    * Birds
    * Macro
    * Landscape
    * Candid

    Important:
    * Bring: mosquito repellant, water (No potable water source within the Reserve, only at Visitor Center), some light food (possibly for lunch).
    * Wear: long pants and hat

    You may want to rent longer lenses ( > 250mm) from ClubSNAP rental if you intend to shoot birds, although if we get lucky we may be able to get a little closer to the birds.

    Interest List:
    1. RyuHendrabusa
    2. NovJoe
    3. Raylen
    4. RyanG
    5. vpsk01

    Hendra & Raylen, please check your PM for my contact number

    All of us got to Thanks vpsk01!!! He has offered to give all of us a ride to Sungei Buloh from Woodlands MRT! As his car can only hold 5 passangers max (incl driver himself), any others coming along will have to take the tibs bus to the place.

    Man.

    I not use to the push and pull zooming of 100-400. So irritating. I think if I pull too much force you will see me as a panda.

    is it because the object i'm trying to shoot is too close or the lighting is not there?
    2 things i can think of:
    1. the subject is too close, meaning it is within the minimum focusing distance
    2. camera cant focus lock on the subject as there is no contrasting lines / colours for it to focus. imagine trying to get a plain white wall in focus.

    there is a trick to get use to this lens.
    too much friction, u get mad. too loose u might have some difficulty in controlling the zooming. u can tighten the knob till u can feel the right friction for u to push and pull.

    specs put in a table to do comparison, if these are the 3 i'm considering, which would fit a >>

    - lighter tripod
    - my ht is abt 1.72m (ok, now its not a secret anymore)
    - and say max weight to allow room for a mid-range dslr+grip+flash+some tele lenses say 70-200 (prob onli f4)

    er, sorry its in chinese, got it off the benro's site. price ranges from $158 to about $180+.
