Zoos: your thoughts about them and how useful for photography?
Posted By PJ1

Modern zoos are way ahead of what they were in the past. They certainly offer us the chance to get up close (if not quite personal) with animals most of us could never see in the wild. In that way, they must make us more aware of those animals and (hopefully) the environmental challenges they face. There are zoo bred animals today which are extinct in the wild and which hopefully will offer us the chance to re-establish wild populations when circumstances permit. Zoos serve many useful purposes. Offering us subjects to photograph is just one and we should not dismiss it for the wrong reasons.

Keep looking for a K-3 or K-3ii - or hang on for the new APS-C flagship. Interchangeable batteries is a bonus if you stay with those choices.

Certainly is good CGI. Thanks for posting it. But the Pentax connection? Hypothetically, maybe it will be produced with Pentax on the front and Ricoh on the back.:lol::lol:

First things first - welcome to the Forums. Now your images - they are nice. You have an artist's eye for composition. The rest will come later. But give us a few more details about yourself - What are you looking to achieve from your photography? etc You are fortunate in being an artist. I think it is easier for an artist to become a photographer than for a photographer to become an artist. And speaking of art, what medium do you prefer?

I was there in September 2016. It was quite easy to get shots with no people in the frame. 18mm would have been my widest (on APS-C) and I had no problems getting what I wanted. I think you can only walk around inside at the solstices (when all the would-be druids get in on the act).

Interesting bokeh. I find it rather distracting although your main subjects are well captured.

Welcome to the Forums, from Australia. I think I can lay claim to doing this for 60 years, my first camera being what would now be called a "toy'' camera that had a dreadful light leak. But once I came to Pentax I never wanted to leave!

Hi Dave

This is a subject of considerable interest to me. As far as I know, the best evidence is that the dingo came some time in the last 10,000 years in another wave of human migration. There are two major points in favour of that: first there is no evidence of any domestication as far back as 40,000 years (and no dingo fossils that old), and a new micro tools tradition also came into Australia in the last 10,000 years, presumably with a new wave of human migration. The best guess as to when in the last 10,000 years it was, that may lie in the origins of the Pama Nyungan language group which seems to have been about 6,000 years ago in the area where Burketown is now. No border control back then! Pama Nyungan languages spread across Australia very rapidly, as did micro tools and (presumably the dingo). The dingo never got to Tasmania, nor did micro tools or the Pama Nyungan languages.

Thanks for commenting.

Go for it. Yes, it is big and very heavy. It is hard to understand its rating in the reviews here because it is the same lens as the K series which is rated much better. At that price you can surely find a use for it - maybe on a semi-permanent mount for backyard birding?
