  • Replied in D3300 vs D90
    Two reasons above why the D90 is a better choice ... the built in focus motor and the very good 18-105 lens :)
  • Replied in D750 or 'V4'?
    I already have a D90 and a D300s and I just bought the wife a D7200 so I'm already pretty well set up for DX bodies. So my choice is go 'up' to FX or 'down' to CX. The real appeal of the CX is ...
  • Replied in V1 Mod
    Very clever. I'm always knocking the dial and realising I'm in the wrong mode!
  • Replied in D750 or 'V4'?
    Ha ha, no, it wasn't a judgement on the D750. It was a question of the options I may have open to me if I want to upgrade/change my D300s. If the V4 could offer the same quality pics and control ...
  • Replied in D750 or 'V4'?
    Some beautiful images there :) I do love the Pallas Cat - so grumpy looking, but still so photogenic. Thanks for sharing.
  • Cheers :) So in answer to the original question, I get lucky sometimes but I don't recognise when I've taken a decent picture. So NO I'm not a good photographer LOL
  • Hopefully my pictures have moved on since those heady early days ... but then the cost of my gear I should blinkin' hope so LOL
  • Shot with my first 'real' camera, a panasonic FZ18. On a moving boat. Auto mode. I'm actually indifferent about this picture, but my wife loves it so much she had it put on canvas and on the wall. ...
  • Sounds like you're describing my pictures :) I guess if you want to sell pics then you need others to like them. If you don't plan to sell pics then only you need to like them, and it's a bonus if ...
  • Don't forget to put your gear down every now and then and watch the bush through your own eyes and not through a lens. And listen to the bush - it can tell you a story you can't always see at first. ...
  • I have an interest in wildlife, and I can see this little beauty helping me out no end. Just need some good weather now, and lots of bugs and birds :-D Off to Spain later in the year so hoping to ...
  • I shoot for my own pleasure. I mostly post my pics to Facebook for friends to look at (some do, some don't). Am I a good photographer? For what I want - YES Am I better than others? Well, compared ...
  • Created discussions 70-300cx just arrived
    Fitted it to the V1 and grabbed a couple of shots before the light goes ... straight out the camera, no cropping, no PP. I'm going to like this lens :)
  • Replied in D750 or 'V4'?
    Just pulled the trigger on the 70-300cx to go with my V1.  Will combine this with my D300s and see how they compare in good light. Will wait to see what comes next in the Nikon line up to see where ...
  • Created discussions D750 or 'V4'?
    I know, there is no V4 yet, but assuming there is and assuming it is a step up from the V3 .. I have a D300s (which I love) and a V1 (which I love too). I'm thinking about the next move up and I ...
  • My main camera is a D300s, but I do like to take the V1 out when travelling light. Went to an English garden yesterday and got a few of the trees in blossom.  Taken with the 30-110 lens.
  • Created discussions Scope question
    Anyone use a spotting scope for birding?  I'm off on a wildlife trip (Spain after the Iberian Lynx) later this year and along with the D300s and Sigma 150-500 I'd like to take a scope too as the ...
  • Something like this ... http://store.lowepro.com/backpacks/pro-runner-300-aw I can get my D300s, Sigma 150-500mm, Tammy 18-270, a WA plus other bits and bobs.  I'd be confident getting a larger bag ...
  • Been to Kwara (Little Kwara to be specific) and it is lovely. Some great wildlife around there! I carry our gear in a Lowepro backpack, and our clothes etc are in a soft holdall bag.  The big bag ...
