  • I only bought the M on a whim and have really been taken with it's qualities. I do however miss a viewfinder and the ability to quickly and accurately focus. I had originally sold my ageing Olympus ...
  • I was looking out for a decent DSLR in the UK Black Friday deals and drew a blank. Canon 7D with 10% off was about it. :-(
  • So my boy wants a camera for Christmas and I've gone and bought him a Fuji S4500 Bridge camera that was a good deal. I can't help but look online at images from these cameras now and compare them ...
  • I got the 50mm 1.8 today and am staggered by the IQ from such a portable package.
  • Nice shot. I like the quality of the 'low light' images the M produces.
  • This any good? http://www.professionalphotographer.co.uk/magazine/downloads/model-release-form
  • Replied in New plain box
    Apparantly they are official Nikon refurbs, supplied with a 6 month Nikon warranty and a further 6 months from the seller who will send it on to Nikon on your behalf. I've no doubt they are legit, ...
  • Which would you prefer if you were buying an official refurbed camera? Am I mad having a bit of OCD in preferring a tatty original box over a new plain one?
  • Replied in Town & Country
    Thank you Miguel. Yes, it does look quite comical really. We were trying to cross the field and they came towards us and blocked our path. My wife was terrified....more terrified than my 6yo and ...

  • Replied in I'm torn
    I'd likely be stuck with the kit 18-105 lens for a while too.
  • Created discussions I'm torn
    The M was meant to be a stopgap, an experiment and I've been pleased with the images it produces but frustrated with the lack of quick control. I really want to get back on track and purchase the ...
  • Aaargh. I was issued a refund and an apology today due to the 'pricing error' :(
  • Created discussions Just picked up a 650D (T4i)
    Just picked up a 650d to complement my M. I'm looking forward to having a few buttons to press again. ;-) Ebay seller in the UK was selling them off at £169 which is a bit of a bargain imo.
  • Replied in Olympus E620
    After many happy years with my Olympus E500 I fancied something more up to date, and opted for the E620. I was sorely disappointed with the image quality from the more modern sensor. It was noisier ...
  • I really want a D7100 but the full price on Amazon makes me weep. So given a choice between a lightly used one (600 actuations) with a 50mm 1.4 lens and 2 fast memory cards or a brand new import ...
  • Created discussions Just bought a 55-250 ef-S
    Looking forward to using my adapter for the first time today.
