Quote:Wow Steve, I just got back and have been checking some of the posts I missed and came across these images. Truly fantastic. I also use a D5100 - just had it modified - but have been unable to use it since it came back. Mostly related to weather. Anyway, these should be hanging from your wall. Very well done!!!
Quote:I had it modified by Brent Oliver. He is member of this forum and goes by the name of Nofxrx. He is a great guy to deal with and has a lot of experience with Nikons. Hopefully, when the moons gone, I can get some images to try it. Also it has to warm up a bit for me - was minus 40C last night.
