  • Hi Mark, I agree with you. A lens hood offers better damage protection than a filter. As per my earlier post, if you shoot film a UV filter is useful, as you can use it on a digital camera as well, ...
  • My personal choice is to use both a quality (MRC B+W UV) filter and a hood. The hood is always on to prevent flaring and as the first line of protection. The filter is normally used, as I find it ...
  • I bought a lens hood from eBay. Works great with the fuji 27mm. Item is still available, described as 39mm Lens Hood for Rangefinders. The hood adds about 2cm to the length of the lens. The max ...
  • Hi David, Glad you are enjoying your new Fuji and got such a great deal. I share your views on the lenses. I was also thinking of selling the kit zoom, but it is so good and versatile that I can't ...
  • Hi, Before buying an X-e1, it may be worth downloading a copy of 'Mastering the Fujifilm x-e1 and x-pro1' by Rico Pfirstinger. I paid £6.49 from Amazon.  I used it to determine whether the x-e1 ...
  • Hi Shane, I have the X-E1. The slow AF was largely resolved by a firmware update. If you buy an X-e1, ensure you install the latest software, as some of the end of line models ship with old ...
  • Correct. That is why each case is tried on its own facts. Courts do not automatically assume a mentally ill person has no responsibility. TrapperJohn's post explains the process clearly. Rightly, ...
  • Don't worry, I got the point. I am not expecting a job offer from GCHQ any time soon. If they send me a prize, it would be a turd in a box or something similar. Best regards
  • I just did. Apparently, it does not give prizes to UK residents; they advised me to call GCHQ.
  • In that case, I demand a recount.
  • I scored the highest so far, 13 points. Do I get a prize?
  • Replied in erm, and ooops
    Cards on table. I voted UKIP. Based on the quality and tone of your tirades, I would not have voted UKIP if your name was on the ballot paper. You are letting our Party down.
  • That is obviously true. That is also a truism. My comment was one of fact; a direct answer to your question. Specifically, to identify the link between the Wiki article and Prince Charles. No more, ...
  • Unfortunately, whatever my kids are into at the time. A small price to pay for being blessed with family, but a downside nonetheless. Regards
  • Indeed, but not unusal for DPR Off Topic posts. Though most are good reads, others follow an inevitable downward spiral.  Launch sequence as follows: 1. Get out of bed. 2.  Feel annoyed about ...
  • Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were related before their marriage. Prince Charles is their son. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are both great great grandchildren of Queen Victoria. The ...
  • Before reading this thread - No. After reading this thread -  Yes. So I'll be changing my brand. Regards
  • Replied in I tend..
    Hi Bob, I prefer the jpegs from Fuji cameras to those from Nikon, but that is my subjective opinion based on what I see, not what I know.  But, more importantly, I have got very pleasing jpegs from ...
  • Possibly. But, as an idiot myself, I can't be sure and am prone to quote others out of context. Regards,
  • Replied in @ pot80 !
    Very good question. Hadn't thought about that. I am not sure but, provided you actually print out the digital news version onto photocopier paper before fixing it to the brick wall, it could be ...
