Is there a suite that's better than Topaz? Your thoughts?

Each suite has it one or two programs that do what you like. Topaz has denoise, remask, details and adjust. Onone has resizer and effects. Nik has silver and post sharper. They all take time to open, some have their own stand alone program that you don't need to open cs6. Topaz lifetime upgrade. Watch webinars on the different ones. Get a feel how they are used by others. They are have free to try them out. Most all have sales on their suites.

Catch In Focus ... can't get it to work ?

Tested in different modes.
Found when set to single shot, it takes only one shot and then have to be reset.
Slow burst it would take a couple shots together, but it would go off again when move into the zone again.
Same with high burst.
I push the camera button down all the way and hold while I lock remote.
The camera seems to have to process the shots before going off again, bit of lag.
Slow mode only took two shots when I walked into the zone.
You can try what I did and see what happen. Put the flash up then you can tell when it's going off, triggering it yourself.

Manual Len you need to use manual mode not av sv ....
Af.s set
Button half dw
Focus light flash beeps, don't let up on button
Then push the button all the way down hold
Lock remote

Hope that helps

Instead of holding the shutter button down use a cable release. I just focus on my spot, lock the cable release, i use the burst mode. Let it fire away when ever something go into focus. You don't have to stand there with it. Watch football and let the camera fire away. I used a old 70-200 lens.

Don't look at the exif much. Was in PS and happen to look at it. Something I'm not sure of is why the sharpness has Hard next to it. Contrast and Sat both have 0 next to them. Where is it getting hard from, using a k5.

thanks Barry

Nice pic. I've been carrying a k20 or k5 with the 55-300 in my kayak for years. The body and lens fit into the waterproof bag, that lay between my legs. If you need a realy good bag that float also, checkout. I use the one that opens on the end, blue in the picture.

I like them both. The first 120-400 I sent back not sharp. Then got one with sr in it, I figured it would be new design. Much sharper. The 1st elk shoot at 400 f8 hand held. The other elk was with the 500. Eagle was 500 with 1.4. And cropped 45% I think in last picture.

Small reflector ideas?

I made small reflector out of some old gray cards that were black on the other side. Just taped them together to get the size I wanted. On the gray side I took aluminum foil and rolled into a ball and then flatten it out and glued to the board. Works great to add a bit of light when needed and the other side can be use as a black background also.

18-135 not looking sharp

Anybody else having this issue. I've tried it on my 100 super, 20 and 5. None of them look sharp. Shot some at 5.6 up to 11 and 60th to 500. Got it just before going out of town. Used it while hiking, but just don't look as good as the other lens I used. 10-20 or the 120-400 sigma or the old 18-55 kit lens. Some on tripod with sr off and 2 sec delay, some hand hold with sr on. They all look the same.

When I get time I was going to makeup a len test sheet and see what happens.

Using InFocus alone it don't seem to work for me. But when I use ps unsharpen mask first, then InFocus then I think it works well. I then hit it with a small amount of denoise and the picture look better.
I looked at InFocus alone next to PS um and ps looked abit better. But the two together work the best.
