I also used the timer on the camera so I wouldn't touch it while the shot was being taken to avoid any shaking of the camera. I might invest in a remote or something to make it easier.

@CGrasRegarding remotes, I've been experimenting with something very similar to this one. On a few chilly nights I used it for manual exposures in the high desert while I was inside our nice toasty camper about 30' away. 😉

I like the idea of a picture thread... or two - one for bikes one for random pics - i have my XT3 and a XF 50 - 140 that just  about fits in the Enduristan tail bag, i might get the wide angle lens nt there too at a squeeze as i would really like to take both lenses on a trip out, otherwise it's the tank bag for me. It's great taking a camera out on the bike - phones are for taking pictures - cameras are for taking photographs.

 

Btw - the dog is only jumping over that small 2" step - as soon as  he lands he's right at the back door - i never knew how he stopped.....

400mm Long lens here and i am about 80ft away lying in the snow, the dog is flat out running down the hill!!

This being my first year with a proper mirrorless camera, which has manual mode but not completely manual, g that makes sense I don't know... Lol... I've made some progress and I'm pleased with the outcome so far... Have a look below at the latest shots from my ride yesterday.

Some fun pictures in here!

 

I enjoy photography and like combining it with motorcycling as well.

 

I have a "decent" but 15+ old Nikon DSLR with a bunch of lenses that I use off the bike, but on the bike I use an inexpensive Canon Elph P&S camera.  I carry it on a lanyard around my neck and stowed in a chest pocket on the left side of my jacket, so I can access it while riding.  If I drop it or have to drop it to grab the clutch the lanyard catches it.  I use an inexpensive camera as the life span on any camera used for moto-travel isn't great - water and dust and impacts and such.  I get about 2 years of use for $150 or so, then it's on to the next better P&S camera in that price range when the current one dies.

 

I don't really edit pictures per se, I crop them often and sometimes tweak the lighting a little, but I don't have any other editing software.  I try to take 5+ pics of any one thing to have a range of images to select the best from, and I try to compose the shot to not necessitate editing.  

 

I've had a very small number of images published in various travel magazines - Toyota Trails and RoadRunner.

 

Still waiting on my Tenere but here's a few recent ones of my Strom(s) and my wife on her Strom.  These are all taken with the little Canon Elph.

 

My images are all at: https://meefzah.smugmug.com/

Great topic, Great Shots!


Curious to hear if anyone has had any current or past issues with DSLR / Mirrorless and more particularly with Lenses because of the constant and possibly strong vibrations that could cause the internal elements (motors / internal lenses) to become decentered overtime?

 

I have been eyeing a Pelican 1485 Air Case (which I would need to see how to mount) for my lenses, but I am wondering if anyone has an alternate solution?
I saw the tank bag but I am still worried about the vibrations and the cost of having to repair/replace just one lens.

I've heard about this in different forums and foam does help... I personally have a bum bag and keep my m100 in there, doesn't touch the bike and my body thames the vibration 🤣👍🤔
