The Importance Of Clean Equipment

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

As you may have read in previous posts, I have recently been having an issue with my Nikon AF-S 80-400mm lens. It was having trouble locking on focus and keeping locked on with Continuous Auto Focus. It would “hunt” making a terrible mechanical noise. I thought it was time to be sent off for a motor service.

I’m not actually sure what fixed the issue, but a full clean of both front and rear elements, a clean of the electrical contacts (which is what I believe to have been the problem) on the lens, a blow with my Giotto’s Rocket Blower and also a blow on the camera mirror itself and as you can see from yet another Wally action shot that everything is back as it should. Remember, for all the electronic wizardry such as Auto Focus and Metering, the camera needs a clear view of the reflected light.

Wally Enjoying The Winter Sun

We took an extended walk today and Wally certainly was full of life in the January sun! It was later than our usual morning walk and therefore not a great deal of wildlife about so Wally became the subject (again!).

Don’t forget that I have 15% discount off a Dogs-In-Nature photo shoot until the end of January, this includes Vouchers and any booking made before the end of the month even if the date is after.

Morning Dog Walk: Wally Splashing Around

Now that the river is flowing normally, Wally is loving splashing around on his daily visit. Of course, I can’t refuse snapping a few pics. Even though he’ll be 2 years old in March, he often still looks like a Puppy!

I love the way the sun was lighting him side-on and especially like how the sun lit all the water droplets different colours.
