RayUK's recent activity

  • In the UK there are some signs of a replacement being due. Our well known photo chain Jessops suddenly cut £400 off the price for a day or two, and Sony UK have doubled their current cash back ...
  • But according to the Tom Hoots review of some weeks ago, the great triumph of this camera is the MNR, which you say you haven't tried, as this provides a significant reduction in the noise which ...
  • I did, yes. The company really seem to mean that they want you to be happy with your product. Ray
  • I had a camera from John Lewis which I decided wasn't doing what I wanted, and JL allowed me to return it for a full refund after 6 weeks (careful) use. They're a great company to do business with. Ray
  • Many thanks Dave - I'll pop back into the shop to try it out. If it and MFNR works to my satisfaction, all I have to do is explain to the wife why my LX100 needs a companion ! Ray
  • Thanks for replies Bob and John. Would never have thought to look for it there! How about the single colour setting? In the UK Barclays Bank are the main sponsors of the Premier football league, ...
  • Hi all Spent another half-hour today in my favourite camera shop, playing with the HX90, and in particular trying to find the setting for MFNR, which Tom and others keep recommending (I presume ...
  • Thanks John and Tom, that's a relief ! Sorry, should have read Tom's other thread first. Ray
  • HX90 owners - I've just been reading the full (?) specs. on the Sony UK website, and can see no mention of an exposure bracketing mode - although there is one for white balance. I like to ...
  • Many thanks Tom. Sounds great, except I can see there might be problems with moving subjects (you may remember from previous conversations that I do some work in the amateur theatre). Ray
  • I thoroughly enjoyed using my hx20 in daylight, before going off down some ILC blind alleys. It's major downside was in low light, so I too would be interested in Stuart and Tom's views on low ...
  • Bill Not sure what result you're aiming for, so this may be of no interest. However, I decided some time ago that life was too short to get involved in too much video editing - in particular the ...
  • I can now report that when I disconnected and reconnected the external drive to the TV it instantly found all the files without re-loading. Presumably after I've loaded new files to the external ...
  • Bought the cheapest portable USB 3.0 1TB drive I could find in PCWorld - a WD Passport for £50. My laptop has both an SD card reader slot and USB 2.0 slots. Files transferred from SD card to ...
  • Today my £6 Transcend USB 3.0 SD card reader arrived from Amazon UK - many thanks to Bill Sprague for the tip- and immediately demonstrated that the 2015 Samsung 4k range would play 4k video ...
  • Unexpected advice, thank you. I have previous experience of waiting for hours whilst video programmes processed 1080p files, and decided life was too short and that I would steer clear of any ...
  • Many thanks for both your replies Bill. The TV is a 2015 model Samsung JU6500. Excellent idea re the SD card reader. I've been trying to imagine how I would use it. Method 1 - Put the SD card ...
  • Thanks for your reply. I've had the same recommendation on the Panasonic forum. However I don't think I need a media player, as that's more or less what my smart TV is. If I plug a USB stick ...
  • Created discussions Storing and playing 4k video
    Couldn't find a previous thread that quite answers my query. I have a new Samsung 4k smart tv and a newish Panasonic LX100 which I use to capture short video clips. I don't intend to do much video ...
  • J I get your enthusiasm for the Minix, but it doesn't provide me with the one-box solution I'm looking for. My Smart TV already acts much like a media player, but what I want is an external hard ...
