Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Still looking for info

Tried to email Eric and it was returned

*********************************


I picked the up this kite from Jerry, and have not been able to locate any additional information
about the kite. It is obviously a Bee of some sort. It is from Chicago Fire and you can see from the
pictures its about 3/4 size from an original.

Any info, name, specs, manual?








Thanks in advance

I also have the 20D but a lot of my shots are not as sharp as I'd like, Lens is a Sigma28-90


The lens currently on the camera is a Canon EF-S 18-55 1:3.5-5.6




I also carry a Canon EF 75-300 1:4-5.6




I used to have a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS that was damaged from falling to the floor and bending the focus ring




I could not find a Sigma 28-90 lens with a Canon mount, are you using an adapter?

I would setup a test with the camera on a tripod and a subject 10-12 feet away and manual focus. Measure the exact distance and take some test shots, then move the subject closer/further by 3-6 inches and take another picture at each distance w/o changing the focus ring then evaluate the results.

Just FYI... if we get this far off topic with no sign of making our way back, I'm minded to split the topic off and repost it somewhere more relevant.

If you want to continue talking about cameras and lenses please make your way to the appropriate section of the forum. M'kay ?
