About me:

Our website (see HomePage link) gives useful info about the Zone 8 Photo Society. Articles on the main website (http://www.photosnowdonia.co.uk) are only occasionally updated because the Society Members have their own Forum website, with lots of Technical Information Leaflets (printable) on a wide range of topics, constantly updated and with new additions, which together with their Newsletter and Free Advice Service, provides a unique source of information on a wide range of photographic and computing topics.
Equipment: Sigma SD9 (since day one) still working fine and SD14 now joined that. Kodak 14n (used for specific work). Also still have 5x4 and 6x9 film cameras, etc.

  • Nor has mine Carl - but I like to tripe quickly with both hands and fingers, so having easy to use key shortcuts makes life so simple.  Have been using them since Windoze first appeared - and ...
  • Agreed - BUT only a true idjit would put tape on such a screen!
  • I think you miss the real point of keyboard shortcuts - no need to take fingers off the keyboard to find and use the mouse!
  • Replied in A way of light
    Very compelling viewing too! Reminds me - can watch new series of the X-Files on satellite TV on Monday 8/2 - Channel 4 UK - at 9pm GMT.  This one could almost be a still from the new series, it's ...
  • Replied in Note that ....
    ... I have always been able to remove any sticky residue from tapes on many articles with some lighter fuel on a cloth.
  • As it's easy to restrict WhatsApp to specific wanted contacts (and easy to backup any messaging) I and friends use it regularly.  One specific advantage, as I live in Spain and a number of regular ...
  • I had been using pigment inks in my former Epson 1160 printer (also, according to Epson, only suitable for dye inks) for several years. Originally, with my then new Epson 1400, I took a chance in ...
  • Hi Glen.  I have deliberately stayed away from Flikr .... and as for Yahoo - dumped that years ago - and never regretted dumping it either.
  • Jon Cone seems a good guy who has tried to produce high quality inks.  Personally, as I mentioned, I have been using pigment inks from inkjetfly.com for many years without any problems.
  • Scottelly wrote:  Hey! I just had an idea. Why don't ALL camera companies that make DSLR bodies make a mount that is the same? ( . . . like the m4/3 mount) Friends, Romans, Countrymen - lens me ...
  • Replied in Uploaded Dave!
    No chance of that - at least my WiFi broadband is pretty reliable and unlimited throughput - the service via a landline was awful and so slow for the upload. The Wifi service, which I had ...
  • Such a HUGE problem that my suggestion is to overcome those relatively few moments you mention before full activity - put the kettle on and make a cuppa!  You won't then notice any delay and it ...
  • I don't understand the ink cost reasoning.  I have been using inexpensive refillable cartridges for my 1400 over several years and pigment inks from inkjetfly.com with excellent results.  I have ...
  • Replied in Uploaded Dave!
    Hi Dave. Here's the link to an image as requested - similar subject to the El Torcal "happy snap". Only problem out here in the mountains is broadband is somewhat down the scale compared to most ...
  • My Epson 1400 is about 8 years old now and working fine with refillables using pigmented inks from inkjetfly.com.  My "office" Epson AIO DX7400 is slightly older - and that's still working fine ...
  • Hi Dave - I will sort another for you as that was taken just as a shot to show the area - so taken using the 35-80 kit lens = fine for such happy snaps but not exactly good for such purposes. Was ...
  • Clearly it's saying "Look at my bottom .... and screw you"  ;-)
  • Hi Dave,  Yes I had seen that before - but took another look.  My basic comment is I don't pixel peep (meaning the samples were mostly great enlargements to find tiny problems that, at least for ...
  • Nice atmospheric shot. How about this though!  In UK, two wales got lost and ended up dead on a beach in Wales (where else) but had the Jonas storm got to UK, we would have had Jonas and the ...
  • Crikey .... Blind as a Bat - Cricket Bat I presume?  That's not Cricket.  (Enjoyed the joke though)
