Cameron R Hood: What a shame; they make GREAT stuff. Been a big fan since the film days.

Hi I bought one of their small LED panel lights just the other day.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (912 comments in total)

This looks like a very interesting offering indeed. Its a bit big for my liking personally, but holds the promise of being a great photographic tool.

However you look at it there are some very nice images there. And I enjoyed looking at them.

Yes, liked those very much. Perhaps I should get a bit more creative myself!

I thought some of those images were lovely, and he made a lot of sense to me.

Well done him!

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

piratejabez: I like everything I've seen about this camera. Love the optional grip and strap. Can't wait to see first-hand performance reports. Way to go, Fuji!


I am an m4/3 guy, but I do like the look of this Fuji and I think they may well have hit the sweet spot with this. I agree that APS-C sensor is good enough for the vast majority, as are the latest m4/3. FF is the dead end really. Who really needs it? You can get thin enough DOF on both APS-C and m4/3 with the right lenses.

And yes I do like the A7. Looks like a nice camera and will suit some for sure.

In reply to:

Identity: I'm sure this is a lovely lens, but I was expecting shallower DOF in an F/1.2 lens. For me, APS-C is still the best balance of size, image quality, cost, and DOF control.

Hi, you could not pay me to lug a D800 and equivlent glass around when I could use a much smaller m43 and this lens and get results that are good enough for me.

If I felt I needed this lens and could afford to buy it then why not? Photography is a hobby for me, and over the number of years I would likely use the lens it is not unreasonably expensive.

I could drive a Toyota, but I like my Porsche.

This is great news. A massive timesaver for me.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

Hi Guys

I think the black version looks quite nice. I was never much taken with the "modern" Nikon designs. Whatever you say it is always preferable to use a tool you like. I like my EM-5 and can overlook the ergonomic issues.

On Ten items you should have in your camera bag article (288 comments in total)
In reply to:

larrytusaz: Why do most articles have you click each picture to read each item on the list? Why not make it one long page so you can click it once & just read, not "next, next, next, next, next, next, nex....."

I agree, ditch this one. All on 1 or 2 pages for this.

On Editorial: Why I can't stop taking iPhone Panoramas article (300 comments in total)


I never really thought about this type of photography (panoramas) before reading this article. They always seemed like too much effort. I also did not want an Iphone 5S, but now I am seriously interested!

I am not interested in mobile phones so would not have seen this article on the connect site. But I am interested in photography so am pleased to find it here.

Thank you for posting it.

On Nikon 1 AW1 preview (587 comments in total)


This is a very interesting camera, and 20m is enough for most underwater photographic purposes. I would dive with it a bit deeper than 20m but would not operate any buttons below 20m. In fact the buttons may depress by themselves at 30m because of the water pressure.

On Weye Feye connects your DSLR and smartphone post (42 comments in total)


It's a shame it does not support Olympus cameras. I would love remote control for my EM-5. Yes it seems expensive!


Direct link | Posted on Sep 13, 2013 at 00:34 UTC as 15th comment


I have also just tried one. If it had the same video modes as the LX7 I would have bought it.

The ability to control it from a smartphone is super cool though. Truly useful and works like magic!

On Just posted: Olympus Body Cap Lens 15mm F8 review article (127 comments in total)


I am pleased you reviewed this lens, and I like the fact that the site looks at things athat are a little of the beaten track. It's more interesting like that IMHO.

All the best!

Dennis: Why not look at it in this way; Panasonic, a well-known camera manufacturer, is selling cameras under its own brand as well as branded limited editions like G-Star/Leica, Paul Smith/Leica, other fashion brands...

Interestingly, my browser suggested "d'luxe" when when I typed "dlux" - kind of underlines the nature of this "Frankenstein" camera... ;-)

That is a very good point. The LX range are well made indeed.

On Behind the Shot: Dark Matter article (52 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lee Jay: Well, to me, the original is better than the final, except for the area around the sun, which is nicer in the final. That last local correction which is said to be the most important, to me, makes the image look almost like a composite - very unnatural and almost like the ice was just pasted on top of an image of the water. I'd probably try again with HSL in saturation mode using the TAT on the yellow/orange sun area, maybe add a little more lens vignetting, and call it good right from the original.


I like both the original and final shot. I found the thought process and seeing the amount the sliders were used very interesting.
