  • Replied in Simon...
    First off, thanks to all who have taken the trouble to look and enjoy the story and the pictures. From a number of people whose work I admire - The Smoking Camera, Brandon birder in particular - ...
  • Hi Simon - thanks for the input. Let me double-check that I understand you correctly: during the export process, when LR allows me to limit the file size to 500KB, it compresses the image, causing ...
  • And here's one more from the same sequence. Andrbar - not certain at all why you're getting a heavily pixellated image. The one I'm posting here comes from my iMac (back home now) vs. my MacBook ...
  • Monday morning, just after 7 a.m., we're heading home after 10 days in South Africa's legendary Kruger National Park (KNP). An hour or so out of Mopani Rest Camp, we're heading south west for the ...
  • A dead telephone box? Wildlife? This is Monty Python, right?

  • toomanycannons - of course I'm looking forward to the Mauritius trip! LOL! (Just don't tell the V1 that it might have to stay at home...) Seriously, for a moment: apparently, like many others on ...
  • The end of an affair is always sad - my condolences. But I find myself in a marriage with my V1 which is running out of steam. Dynamic range, IQ, high ISO, low ISO - these are all the pretty ...
  • Replied in Burrowing Owl
    Bill - once again thanks for the information and congratulations on such an excellent shot. Now - where was it that I put my bank manager's phone number? Look froward to seeing more as you go along. ...
  • Replied in Burrowing Owl
    Bill - first, great capture. I think it may have made a dent in my savings! Would you be kind enough to indicate what sort of crop this might represent? I'm not picking it up from the EXIF data - ...
  • An interesting observation about the sharpness of the G-series lenses, sigala1 - I hadn't thought about it that way. But you are right - it is a very sharp little lens. Thank you for reminding me. ...
  • No worries... G15 - interesting suggestion, Albert, thank you. We sometimes forget the previous generation or iteration too quickly. Do you find the lack of swivel screen to be a problem? With the ...
  • Hi Rudi Thanks for the suggestions. Budget - the Canon G16 is available locally for ZAR6,000, the Nikon P7800 for ZAR7,500 - so let's say between $600 and $800. Much more than that and I'd probably ...
  • Quite right Albert - and as you see above, I've just apologised for hitting the wrong button. 'My bad!', as I believe our American friends say.
  • Apologies - I managed to post the question without any further details. My incompetence! I have enjoyed the G11 as a travel camera because of its size/weight, external controls and articulating ...
  • What You Need To Know?
    Should that read What Adobe Needs To Know?

    I can't speak for anyone else but allow me to spell my position out:

    I could not sign up for a dollar-based subscription account...

  • David - you mention the SB 25, 26 and 27 - do you have experience of/a view on the SB-28? And would  the Nikon SU-4 wireless gadget enable the OP (or me!) to use any of the above with TTL? Tks Chris
  • Hi reversible A lot of very solid advice from a number of my countrymen, by the looks of things. First, you would do very well to send an email directly to the folk at ODP - one of their number - ...
  • Many thanks - that was just the information I was looking for. Much appreciated.
  • As a newcomer to this particular forum, may I pick your collective brains, please? I'll be visiting Cape Town next week and a client (I'm a print/radio journalist) has asked me to grab some basic ...
