  • I appreciate any advice that might help, unfortunately that's the way I've always used the case already.  Although it's a tight fit I'm thinking I'll probably stick with the case as it seems ...
  • Is that the LCJ-RXF?  How do you find it size wise?
  • I've upgraded from an RX100 mk 1 to the mk IV, I've been using a Lowepro Santiago 20 which is such a good fit for the RX100 it felt like it was made for it but unfortunately it's a bit tight for ...
  • To be honest, no I didn't think it worth sharing and I was left scratching my head as to the point of the article. Like most people I'm sure, I want to see actual data on the camera as there's an...

  • 60fps allows you to go slightly slower but it's not really slow motion and slowing it down in a video editor doesn't work well (aside from that super expensive plugin that can sometimes produce...

  • I'm finding the same with the D750 vs a D700, the D750 looks to be underexposing about the same as you're seeing vs the D700.  On reading this thread the Active D-lighting option sounded like it ...
  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review

    They don't cover water damage where the camera has been immersed in water (such as dropped in a body of water) but they did cover damage where water had breached seals when it shouldn't have as...

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review

    I had a problem with a sticky on switch on a D700 which had rarely been outside at the time never mind exposed to moisture. Nikon UK diagnosed the problem as being cause by liquid ingress, I...

  • I use the cameras mounted to the bike so the audio is never any use anyway, I found it useless on the GoPro as well although I saw some good tips for improving the audio on the Virbs using foam...

  • I'm disappointed Garmin have completely abandoned their first generation Virbs - I much preferred them over the GoPro3: Black Edition I had for their better reliability, batterylife, interface,...

  • No, these are their second generation products - they released their first range (the Virb and Virb Elite) a couple of years ago

  • Commented on Connect post Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera review

    I don't understand the pointless 'pixel level image quality' comment either unless they're downsampling the Note 4's output to the Iphone's 8MP and finding the Iphone better? Otherwise as you say,...

  • Commented on Connect post Panasonic Lumix CM1 coming to the US

    The phone is already bulky incorporating a 1in sensor, with a zoom it would be enormous. The Galaxy K Zoom's sensor is tiny in comparison hence being able to fit a zoom in.

  • Commented on Connect post Panasonic Lumix CM1 coming to the US

    I'm in the UK and not been even able to find the phone for sale, it's not on large phone sites, it's not on specialist phone sales sites, it's not on ebay and I can't find it on the likes of...
