Donald M Mackinnon's recent activity

  • On a Saturday. I have to say that the most recent correspondence form Sony intimating that there was missing paperwork pretty much blew me out of the water. To then receive the cashback payment the ...
  • With no intimation or correspondence from Sony whatsoever, a payment of £50 was made by bacs transfer to my account today. A long and totally bizarre struggle indeed !!
  • Replied in On going farce
    I received this astonishing response today from Sony who had assured me that a bacs payment was being arranged to make the £50 cash-back Sony and customer service are yet to meet I see :-( Dear ...
  • How bad is the kit lens, and at what focal length ? Is it a case of soft wide open at 18 mm like its predecessor?
  • I have the opportunity to purchase a K50 from Tesco Direct and use  vouchers towards the cost which will give me a substantial saving. Previously I had a K30 with the original 18-55 WR kit lens. I ...
  • I accept that there is no one set of settings which can be applied and left that will cover every situation. However I have for instance a Panasonic FZ150 which needs -2 NR to be permanently ...
  • I agree with you that it is unacceptable for a camera to have a problem of this nature where replacement is the only economical option. Have you tried making Ricoh/Pentax aware of the motor ...
  • Could we have recommendations for settings to get the best jpegs from the X_A1 ?. There have been various permutations for NR and Sharpening along with Shadow and Highlight settings, in light of ...
  • I remembered that I had read about this somewhere and found the thread from the Pentax User forum. The reason I remembered this was because I sold the K30 which developed the fault. When sold it ...
  • I received this from Harrison's today. If resolved as promised in five days then I suggest this is an excellent example of why we should use genuine dealers. I personally use the Camera Price ...
  • I telephoned Harrison Cameras this afternoon and didn't get very far with my explanation for calling before I was interrupted by the sales assistant asking if "this was about the cashback" He went ...
  • My understanding is that Harrisons who are Sony dealers were unaware that the cameras supplied to them by Sony UK were in any way non genuine items.
  • This confirmation from Sony today. Dear Mr. Mackinnon, after entering your claim details yesterday into your file, I received again the remark "the serial number provided is not valid". Thus the cl ...
  • The call did not sound as if it had been picked up in the UK and France would certainly align with the accent of the telephone operative,who interestingly advised me to think of taking legal ...
  • Created discussions RX100 UK cashback farce
    I purchased an RX100 from Harrison Cameras in July this year and there was a promotion at that time for a £50 cashback from Sony on all new RX100's. Harrison's website had the promotion showing on ...
  • I have in the past used the LX3, LX5 and currently use the LX7. I sold my previous LX7 for a Sony RX100 which has better IQ but has pathetic IS, and blows highlights like no other compact camera I ...
  • Replied in LX7 settings
    Many thanks Ronomy for the settings will try these and see what they look like.
  • Replied in LX7 settings
    Many thanks for this. I set up my first LX7 according to these suggestions and was very impressed with the overall image quality apart from a few which had a flat low contrast look, which I now ...
  • Created discussions LX7 settings
    In the early days of the LX7 this guide in the link below appeared on this forum,unfortunately it is no longer available and I wonder if anyone can recall the set up suggested, particularly the ...
  • Would love one of these for my D3300
