    You don't need a controller. Just use a rubber band and pencil eraser with your camera in continuous shooting mode. A controller might make the process and results easier though.

    I gotta say I really like my Hahnel controller. It is not always intuitive, but it works pretty flawlessly once setup. Fits my normal and weird Olympus USB ports on most of the cameras I own. It was ~$100 so a rubber band is certainly cheaper, but only more flexible in the physical sense.

    Some non-fisheye pictures. For some reason I can't keep the numbers down tonight. Or else I just have a stockpile because I haven't posted recently.

    Raven,

    It maybe my laptop screen, which is not as good as the desktop monitor, but I would like to see a little contrast boost on most of the aspen shots. The trunks seem to lack the nice whites I associate with that tree. Number 7 is just too flat to my eye.

    They all look lovely to me Raven. Really enjoyed looking through them although the first is my favourite.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    I'll look into it, they look right to me on my (uncalibrated) monitor. They all have a small amount of highlights/shadows correction, which also pushes highlights and shadows to just at the point of clipping. So the extremes will be correct, it would just be the middle portions of the histogram that need to move toward the edges. However, aspens aren't really white, they're more of an off white. The question is "white compared to what?" and in this case there are lighter parts than the shaded trunks in each of the pictures.

    Does this go for the fisheye shots too?

    Thanks. I think 1, 3, 4, 6 are my top picks, but there might be a version of 9 I also like.

    Raven,

    Forget most of my comments. I am on my calibrated, home wide gamut monitor and they look at least 2x better. I still think that #7 would benefit from a small 'S' curve contrast boost. Makes me realize even more not to trust anything on that crappy work laptop. Probably need to load the Spyder software on it.

    more contrast = better? Hmmm, maybe that one still needs another shot of contrast... oh well.

    Raven,

    I like that punchier version a bit more, but I would have pumped the blacks up more than the highlights. Then again, I was not there and have not spent time around aspens in their golden Fall glory.
