Apart from 9 an excellent set, I thought 3 a particularly strong image.

For macro work you can convert the Mt-24EX in to something very similar using the Flexible Dual Mount Flash Bracket, £25 on eBay. But if you don't have the Canon this Venus flash is a much cheaper alternative.

at first glance it looks more adaptable than my Canon MT-24EX but no doubt will require the same complex diffusion to be of any use in the field.

Here in the UK a motorist who photographed police cars parked at a bus stop where he had received a ticket for doing the same was arrested under the prevention of terrorism act. His conviction was overturned.

On A closer look at the Nikon Coolpix P900 megazoom article (193 comments in total)

may as well max out the zoom, IQ on these cameras is never good so its more about getting the shot you wouldn't otherwise be able to.

For macro photographers the cropability will be useful when it's not always possible to get in close enough.

Lighthouse shot is striking.

not a bad selection although the bellowing stag has been done so many times and better from that location.

The crop tool doesn't have a crop command so to speak you just save the highlighted area?

Tamron 150-600 would surely have come top?

bronson: This is designed for the oil sheik with the gold plated Bugatti. Nothing more, nothing less. The outdoorsy lifestyle shot of the guy in jeans is laughable.

Might be a heavy holding it for his Cartel boss.

would like to see something from science news like the efficient blue emitting LEDs or the STED microscope.

When they do, look at their gallery first.

Well I like all these, especially the underwater plants. However if I didn't I would feel free to criticise, after all I may be a lousy pianist but I know a poor interpretation of Bach's Goldberg variations when I hear one even if it's by a top player.

I was evidently over optimistic expecting a new style lens cap.
