Confused of Malvern's recent activity

  • Forget the tripod.  Cheap tripods are a waste of money and if you're going trekking I can't imagine you will want to carry it or stop to set it up all the time. If you expect blue skies and...
  • I've had the Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 for several years. I have always been extremely pleased with it and would happily recommend it.  IQ is excellent. A lot of reports suggest that this version is a...
  • Hi.  Thanks for doing this. I try not to pixel peep to the 'enth degree but seeing a RAW file is the only way to really judge image quality and know what you're looking at.   I currently use the DA...
  • Many thanks to everyone for your thoughts and suggestions - much appreciated, as always.
  • Two great photo sets - thanks for sharing
  • Created discussions Amsterdam - Advice please
    I'm off to Amsterdam for a few days next week. My tried and tested travel kit until recently has been K5, Tamron 18-250 & Sigma 10-20.  All bases covered in terms of focal length, not too bulky and...
  • Parkingman, I have an almost identical kit list as yourself - K5, Limiteds + Tamron 18-250. I have already decided against buying the K3 but like you, I'm looking for something that will be an...
  • I shoot for my own personal pleasure and so the aim is simply to take the best photo of something that I can. That can sometimes mean finding a more interesting angle than others have done or if...

  • The Cannon shot wins hands down in my view, in terms of DoF, colour and detail.  But the two images are obviously not taken at the same effective focal length - I'm probably being thick but where...
  • The K7 is a perfectly good DSLR to start out with and the two lenses will cover all your basic needs. I'm not aware of any way to check the environmental seals (there are lots of them- some you can...
  • Hi Jeff Thanks for your comments.  I had taken my tripod along deliberately but in the end shutter speeds were fast enough that I didn't bother using it. Both shots hand held. Yes, time lapse would...
  • Thanks for your kind comments.  I was quite chuffed with the way they came out.
  • Created photos Floods at sunset
    There is a lot of flooding in parts of the UK at the moment. This is the river Severn near Worcester looking towards the Malvern Hills in the distance. It's a scene I pass on the way to/from work...
