    Oris Big Crown Timer Chronograph & Oris Aquis

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Brett and Ive been a member for 2 years now and wanted to finally share a few pieces from my collection; Oris Big Crown Timer Chronograph 46mm and Oris "Frogger" Aquis Date 43mm. My girlfriend got me a Canon Rebel T5i for Christmas last year and I have been playing around with some of the features attempting to enhance my photography skills. Still have a long way to go haha. Thanks for looking!

    Nice watches and nice photos. You are talking my language - I like Oris and I'm a Canon guy.

    Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Very nice Oris pair, the Chrono is one of the better looking big crown Oris watches IMHO

    Thanks! Appreciate it! Yeah I really like Oris and how they are still one of the only small independent Swiss companies left who's watches IMHO are a great value for what you pay and hold their own against some of the bigger guys out there.

    Thanks! Came across the chrono at one of the local AD and instantly fell in love when I saw it. Even though there is a lot going on within the dial, they seem to keep it all looking simple and clean. The only gripe I have with Oris, and most higher end watch companies, is the use of odd sizing bands ie; 23mm

    Great start down the D-SLR path. Do you use a tripod? If not, get one, they make a big difference in making quality, sharp photographs. I have a Canon 6D with a few L-Series zoom lenses (17-40/4 USM, 24-105/4 IS USM and 70-200/4 IS USM) and I always use my camera in manual exposure and focus modes so I have total control. He he he..........

    I try to use a fairly small aperture (large F-stop munber, stopped down) to gain more depth of field (DOF), better focus across the whole image. Using a large aperture (smaller F-stop number, ie. aperture wide open) is great for focusing in on only a narrow slice of the subject, if that is the desired effect.

    If you do get a tripod don't bother with the cheap ones, they are not all that stable; go for something like a Manfrotto or Gitzo, for to excellent brand examples. Also don't buy a tripod that gets just tall enough when fully extended that you can see through the camera when you are standing up; that could end up being way too short depending on how/where you are using the tripod. One of my tripods can get 74" high (plus the height of the head mounted to the center column). There have been times when I had the tripod fully extended and, in the situation I was in, the camera was only at my lower chest! (The tripod was in a creek with me stradling a boulder to get the camera in the position I wanted to make a photograph of a certain tree in Bridalveil Creek at Yosemite Valley.

    Do you think that Oris and Canon have a similar attraction? Despite my truly terrible photographic skills I have found myself drawn to Canon products over the years.
