  • Wow Baz, you really do have a sense of humour. If only you showed it more often.
  • Certainly no complaints about mine. It’s a very versatile lens. It was bought second hand from MPB here in the UK, who I’ve used on a number of occasions. For the money I thinks it’s very good value. ...
  • After your upcoming ban, Baz, what identity will you adopt for your next incarnation? Will it be Kim Jong-un or perhaps Joseph Stalin? You have such a great deal in common with them both. Tolerance ...
  • Sinking of MV Princess Victoria. There is still a commemorative service held locally in January every year to remember the loss of 133 souls in 1953.
  • Port Patrick Life Boat 'John Buchannan Barr.'
  • Campbell’s restaurant, Port Patrick, Wigtownshire. Bit of a cheat really, I live eight miles up the coast. :-D Free go for someone.
  • I think mine would have to be a Praktika with a 50 and 135 lens bought in the 70’s. Built in the Eastern Bloc, probably from re-cycled T34’s, it was undeniably crude but having come from a Kodak ...
  • Replied in D3x
    I actually tried to trade in my D700 for a D3x two weeks ago, 5k clicks, mint condition and just under £1,800. Problem was the trade in value of the D700. Very, very low. When I rang the store the ...
  • Replied in Well...
    No it's not, it is called the North Atlantic Ocean. Why are you still posting, Basalite? You are a banned former member.
  • Replied in Slrhut
    I couldn't agree more. Grey or official, they're all the same product. You would have thought that no matter where they came from, a warranty from the manufacturer would have to be honoured by the ...
  • Replied in Slrhut
    I’m glad everything worked out ok for your friend. In life as well as the web, people only tend to shout up when things go wrong, they don’t often tell anyone when they’ve had a good service. Just ...
  • Replied in Slrhut
    Please don’t think that I’m trying to be funny but did you do a web search on this alleged UK Company? From what I can see they are based somewhere overseas, there's even mention of them being ...
  • May I respectfully remind you that this is a multinational, multicultural site. I find your derogatory use of the word ‘Foreigner,’ to anyone not being from the United States, to being both ...
  • ZX11 = Kwacker? Riding a Fireblade? What's going on here, did you see the light? ;-) Anyway, there's none of my photo's on line 'cos they're pish! But, it doesn't stop me getting out and about ...
  • You seem to be very keen on this type of photography. In order to progress, have you ever considered getting yourself a macro lens?
  • Will somebody help me, please? My now defunct, crappy, old D700 has a top shutter speed of only 1/8000 sec. What should I do? Trade it in for a D750, stick it on flea bay and hope for the best, or ...
  • According to DP Review First Impressions, adding the MD-D16 doesn't increase frame rate.
  • A couple of questions I would ask myself. Is the 'Seller,' a camera specialist or someone who punts out second hand gear? What's the shutter count? If it's a camera that is virtually new, then the ...
  • Replied in It's a D750
    I’ve just done a Google image search for Nikon D750. I found an image on a forum dated 2009, showing a mock up D750 with a detachable, WiFi, rear LCD screen! Now how groovy would that be? :-)
  • Get yourself under the sink and find where the missus hides her Mr Sheen/Pledge and give it a good clean with one of them. I'm no expert but I wouldn't want to be squirting my carbon fibre tripod ...
