I am happy with quality & resolution.




The ZOOM Min. & Max.



Great news.

The ‘Tamron’ all-in-one zoom 28-300mm, f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD works just fine — good autofocus (AF) and all — with a ‘Canon EOS RPfull-frame, mirrorless with the standard ‘Canon’ EF-EOS R Mount Adapter (with the Control Ring).

No firmware updates. Straight out of the box.

I have firmware 1.1 on my Canon EOS RP and I use the Mount Adapter with the Control Ring.

Everything worked, first time. I was DELIGHTED.

After posting in multiple forums I could only get one person to confirm that this would work.

The Tamron website does NOT have this lens as one that will work on the EOS RP. Well it does.

This is THE LENS I wanted. I wanted as much reach as I can get in an all-in-one. I do not like fiddling around changing lenses.

Pretty happy with quality. Better than I expected — methinks.

So, spread the word.

All taken today with Tamron. Click for originals.

‘Canon EOS RP’ Make Sure EG-E1 Extension Grip Is Screwed On Tight At All Times.

by Anura Guruge



Yesterday (Father’s Day) in Boston, at the New England Aquarium, I found that my ‘new’ Canon EOS RP kept on intermittently going DEAD! It was scary. Then it would come back on. I first thought it might be because it was so dark inside. I was really panicking. Had visions of having to send the camera back.

I changed batteries. Still …

Then, I noticed that the screw on the grip was loose. I tightened it. BINGO.

So, a heads up. OK?

I don’t want anyone else to go through what I experienced. Not fun. Not funny.

I With My New ‘Atoll’ 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board (iSUP) — June 17, 2019 (2nd Ride).

11' Atoll iSUP Anura Guruge




The 2nd ride on the Atoll 11′ stand up paddle board (iSUP) that I got on Saturday. Couldn’t use it on Sunday (Father’s Day) because we were in Boston all day (plus it was not a nice day in terms of weather).

Again a bit too windy for my liking BUT I am getting the hang of it — quite literally. Only fell in once and I was on the board for 40 minutes paddling. Compared to my old Coleman Banshee the Atoll, 19 pounds when inflated, is feather-light. That is what I need to get used to. But, I will. Board feels great. Tracks well. I am pleased.

“Scottish Mussel” (2015) Movie On “Amazon”: Cute Enough Story, BUT Kicker Is Learning About Scottish Pearls!

Despite my Scottish heritage and all the time I have spent in Scotland I had never heard of Scottish pearls! I know that for a fact, because it isn’t something I would have forgotten.

This movie, ‘Scottish Mussel‘ appeared in my Amazon Prime Video recommendation list. It looked vaguely promising. So, the other night when we decided we should try a comedy to get a break from murder-mysteries we gave it a spin.

And then we learnt about Scottish pearls and, boy, am I glad. I felt that there was a gaping hole in my knowledge.

Movie is not something to write home about. Some magnificent shots of the eternal beauty of bonny Scotland and there are some funny bits. But, we watched it to the end because the Scottish pearl angle was so intriguing.

So, don’t watch it as a comedy. Instead treat it as an amusing documentary of Scottish pearls.
