Hi All,

  This is my new grow log!  Hopefully I'll have pictures of New Big Dwarf tomatoes to show you instead of just plants.  Here's a slideshow so far:

Ooh, good idea re downloading

Ooh, good idea re downloading the manual! Done.

This isnt a major problem, btw. I can half-click the button and lock focus at a certain distance, then frame the way I want, and click the rest of the way. This is why I havent bothered yet - have a workaround.

Got it.    Find the setting

Got it.    Find the setting for 'spot' focus.  Then it'll focus on whatever is in that 'spot'.  Try that.

I'm realizing you may still have to look that up in the manual, but why not download a copy of the manual so you can check it online?  Then you can just search for the word really quickly.

Judith - that's what it's on.

Judith - that's what it's on. It's just that it keeps picking a different focus than I want, so I need to look up how to override and tell it to use my choice instead of its choice.

There's a closeup ("macro mode") setting, but it has like 6 different foci it chooses between 

Try automatic setting & macro.  You'll be surprised how well it does.

 

Enjoy!

P.S. Mind if I ask why

P.S. Mind if I ask why "closing out this grow log" and posting all pix in forums instead? (I'm not complaining - express yourself how you like. But I can move the forum posts into your growlog if you want, as well.)

Hi All,   Closing out this

Hi All,

  Closing out this grow log.  NBD is a promising tomato - but it needs to be pruned.  Two plants, one tomato.  Here are the monsters prior to clipping -

2" diameter already! Wow,

2" diameter already! Wow, that's pretty good, Beth!

Yeah, I need to take out my camera manual... There's a closeup ("macro mode") setting, but it has like 6 different foci it chooses between, and I can't remember how to tell it to use a different one.

Hi All,   NBD tomato plants

Hi All,

  NBD tomato plants are doing well.  In retrospect, I should have planted only one.  Snipping the growing tip set back bud development - but I do have 3 tomatoes set.  The biggest is 2" in diameter.  One day I'll figure out how to get my camera to focus on individual tomatoes!
