On Mountain Magic: Shooting in the Lofoten Islands article (73 comments in total)

Great pics, you are right in saying that it is hard to describe the place. I went there about twenty years ago in the summer and the sun never set. I guess I shot film and you have got me wondering where my photos are now. I am tomorrow driving half way from Oslo to Bergen, but will still be a huge distance from Lofoten. From one end of Norway to the other is the same distance as from London to Rome.

Interesting, but the slow startup is not so great.

On 1939: England in Color (part 3) article (90 comments in total)

Great pictures. I love them I have a collection of quarter plate negatives that my grandfather took in the early nineteen hundreds. I have scanned them all (about one hundred). Some show town and scenes from East London, Epping I believe and some from Yorkshire. There's are some nice ones of an agricultural show. I'm sure someone apart from me might be interested in these but not sure who to show them to. Can anyone advise me?

What is the point? Buy a proper camera for the same money.

Ulfric M Douglas: Wow that blue Polaroid is really ugly!
Sensor-in-lens sounds interesting, like Ricoh's modules but I'm guessing smaller sensors and cheaper opticals.

Ugly is the new beautiful!

xoio: Getting sick & tired of the current trend of cameras loosing their EVF/OVFs ..
Then bullsh*tting the public into thinking that the above is a 'Premium' feature now, when it has ALWAYS been & SHOULD always remain a FUNDAMENTAL component of a CAMERA!
- That's right .. camera.. NOT a wave it about in front of your face iphone!

I agree whole heartedly!

On Accessory Review: Tamrac Zipshot Tripod article (94 comments in total)

I'm not impressed. I bought a £50 Manfrotto for a 7D and it's not wort using. This thing looks like it would sway in a breeze. Maybe ok for a P&s. I wold not ever buy a junior tripod again.

PhotoKhan: Where's the "My threads" link for each particular user. Is it gone?

PK

I can only find it by clicking on the Forums link at the top right and it is now listed there. But this is misleading as it isn't a Forum is it?

Check out one of my pictures here. I did the Hurtigrutten Boat trip to the North of Norway and could recommend it to everyone. You are not guaranteed Auraura sightings but can be lucky like we were.

In reply to:

Halibut: Once again the Brits are fleeced - $49 or £49. $49 is currently a hair over £30. Not that I'd want this stuff anyway.

I agree. We all know how Adobe rips off the Europeans too by charging well over thecconversion rate. Just how difficult is it to sell in $s and convert that day by the going rate. Or if that is too hard set the rate at an average over the last few months say.

So this is the landscape shot of one with experience and knowledge of the subject is it? Ha. Keep trying.

On Anthem ! in the Oh Canada! challenge (4 comments in total)

Looks like a bit of Saturation boost and a tine amount of sharpening. Do you think the processing created this image. I think it was created when the shutter was pressed. Good pictures don't need much processing.

He doesn't look so old to me, just rugged. Nice shot but the colours are a bit Fuji for me.
