  • I am with you on this, BBB. There is absolutely NO reason for a civilized person to give a deliberately rude "answer" to someone. Suggest an appropriate piece of literature to read, if you know of ...
  • Hey VS, 2 nice shots. I see you are starting to get to grips with "The Beast"!!
  • Agree with just about everything you say, but could it be that those old epic photos were taken with equipment that could have been deemed "hi-tec" in its time?
  • Replied in Camers clubs.
    I totally agree with your last sentence Roy.
  • Replied in Camers clubs.
    Hi Chris. Make that 76%!!! over 60. I will give it a go tomorrow. Cheers.
  • Replied in Camers clubs.
    I have just been online & there is a camera club less than a mile away from where I live!!
  • Replied in Camers clubs.
    Hotdog & Dareshooter, thanks for your encouraging posts. Dareshooter, I will look up the link you have given. Thanks to you both.
  • Created questions Camers clubs.
    What are your experiences of camera clubs? Can you enjoy them without having to go into the serious business, comps etc? I would just like somewhere I can chat face to face with other ...
  • I bought a decent Manfrotto mono-pod for 1/2 price at a closing down sale. Carbon fibre, it's strong & well made, however, I have hardly used it, as I find hand holding even long lenses to be so ...
  • Thanks for your replies guys. I am sure one of the mentioned ones will do me fine. I have just bought a Youngnau wireless flash transmitter/reciever set up & it works well on my 5D2 which doesn't ...
  • Created questions 3rd party grips.
    has anyone had any hands on experience of using 3rd party battery grips from the likes of Vivitar? Most reviews say they perform as well as the camera manufacturers part, but just not as robust. An ...
  • Replied in Used Bodies
    You would get a better response by posting in the appropriate Nikon forum. You will also need to give some info on what type of photography you want a camera for.
  • More good advice by John here. Just to add, like camera bodies, one of the things that makes a "pro" lens so much more expensive, is the build quality. A Canon "L" series lens will cost many times ...
  • Created questions Vivitar battery grips.
    Has anyone in UK ordered one of these battery grips? The reviews are quite favourable & I am prepared to take the chance for $30 rather than the £100+ for Canons own. I want one for my 5D2 & one ...
  • If you are shooting your kids at sports, the stabilization is not needed. I would always have it myself because my hands are a bit shaky, but if you can keep your shutter speed up around the 1/500 ...
  • Congratulations Kris. I had a bad drink problem myself years ago that contributed to my marriage breaking up. I am not teetotal, but have learned to control it successfully for 10 years now. Great ...
  • Mine was, "Is that a wig?" !!!
  • I have been having a great time shooting real close-ups with my WA. So I would say NO.
  • Hi Ste. I would just like to add to the good advice you are getting here. These are my own experiences & how I handled them. First, I have only been into photography for 3 years. I have had exactly ...
  • I'm sure I have seen a book at the library titled "The Strobist" or something similar?
