Cheers for that Alby.
That is a cracking shot of a Hoverfly, just goes to show what these FZ cameras can do.
Looks like you have a few more FZ years experience than me! I got my 1st FZ camera a decade ago. I bought the FZ28, i was seduced by its 18x optical zoom!
But way back then i should have...
No problems Dan, if i can offer some advice on the FZ330, then its all good (although ive only been shooting with it for just a year) so my experience might be limited.
I suppose you could run the FZ330 along side your FZ82, use the massive zoom/reach of the FZ82 for birding, an use an FZ330...
Another example of why i like the "tiny, puny" 12 megapixel sensor of the FZ330!!
Back in June, i was shooting images of Marbled White butterflies, it was close to 6.45pm, the sun had gone behind the clouds, an i had to shoot into the light.
Because of the conditions, i dropped the shutter speed...
Good idea for a thread...I too, thought about storming the "High End Bridge Camera" thread...but with my puny little tiny sensor FZ330, i probably wouldnt have been accepted;)
Ive been shooting with Panny FZ small sensor cameras for a decade now(along side other systems like - Nikon DX/FX, Nikon...
Thanks for the comment.
I use both canon 250 an 500D close up filters. These filters are easier to use, than the Raynox 250/150's, because the magnification on the 250D/500D is not as great as the Raynox lens. I only really use Raynox lenses, when im shooting much smaller subjects. For larger...
Great session Tuesday evening for Butterflies.

Another nice shot Alf.
Is he a "reptile man", ive never heard of him, to be fair, why should I have! ;)
Anyway, back to your Adder, the blue hue to the belly/lower body scales, suggests that she is on her way to sloughing/shedding her skin(hence her darker appearance). Once she "sheds" she will...
Great images Alf, a good find...and a fantastic snake/adder. These beautiful snakes can be very addictive ;)
Im wondering who told you this snake is a male?!...because although im no expert on Vipera berus (adders) I would say this is a female all day long.
Male pattern colouration is generally...
Oh, I see Dave, a fair bit of travelling involved then.
Im a lazy photographer, as in - if it aint local to me, then I don't generally make the effort. However, a few years ago, when we had an influx of Long Tailed Blues in the country, I did make the effort...I drove a 120 mile round trip...
Thanks for that Alf. I had a great session on that day.
Im thinking of going out this afternoon/evening, its too sunny/hot here in Kent right now (the butterflies will be way too active!!) so hopefully, some clouds will roll in later, an i'll get lucky. ;)
