  • ...and Windows 7 will not stop working when it is out of support, all that means is that Microsoft will no longer write new patches for bug-fixes, but very few new bugs will be found after that ...
  • Replied in Old tintype
    Unfortunately sometimes the relevance of a photograph can be lost - If you don't know who it was, it has less significance as a descendant - could be a photo of a younger grandparent who you are ...
  • Now, I might be doing you an injustice here, but this is your first post... I just hope your second will not link to a particular LED lighting solution you are trying to push...
  • It often goes well beyond opinion, it sometimes strays into an intolerant attitude towards others who have differing opinions (your "don't let the door hit you..." comment is a good example). Freed ...
  • They are running a free resource and are entitled to get it wrong occasionally. I doubt that one of their SR3 rumours would have had only one source, so the fact that one person gives made up info ...
  • I'm afraid there are just too many individual preferences out there - A lot of mirrorless cameras are thinner than most QR plates and if any one plate was standardized on, the tripod manufacturers ...
  • Replied in Advice
    Look at other people's photographs and work out what it is about the ones you like best that makes them work. Read about the rules of composition and go along with the things you like, while ...
  • Makes sense to me...

  • We all have bias of some sort, I don't agree with a lot of what he says, but he is entitled to put it out there on his own site.
  • Thank you - I stand corrected - I did look at a review he did for the Nikon Df, where it wasn't taped over, but I may have chosen the review that did not conform to his usual practice.
  • This camera does seem to polarize opinions! He appears to have so low an opinion of Sony that he has even taken their name off the pentaprism (actually it looks quite good like that...) Takes all ...
  • It should be remembered that there used to be lots of odd formats (4x4 etc) - half frame (remarkably similar to APS-C) was very popular - it died out, not because of quality concerns, but more ...
  • ...and there is quite a difference in viewfinder if you are using an OVF. APS-C & M43 still do amazing stuff though, and with very log lenses you do get that extra bit of reach...
  • For noise reduction DXO OP 10 is about as good as it gets - they do a 30 day free trial.
  • Adobe is the market leader for editing software, in much the same way as Canon and Nikon are for interchangable lens cameras. I'm curious to see if those drawn to the market leaders in cameras ...
  • For the recent Anniversary Games in London the insructions said that 'Professional' cameras were not allowed, or any interchangable lenses over 70mm. However they didn't search.
  • Replied in cheap film
    It is to cater for 'pull' development, where you give more exposure to a film that is rated at (for instance) 100 ASA/ISO and then develop it for less time in the persuit of finer grain or other ...
  • Replied in Bulk film
    You can get bulk B&W film for a very reasonable price - it tends to come in 17 or 30 metre lengths - a 36 roll is about 1 metre, but allow for a bit of wastage. To reload cassettes reliably you do ...
  • The DXO score is based on lens and sensor in combination. Don't get too hooked up on scores. Years ago I did my own testing to find out what lenses were sparpest in the middle and corners (by ...
