  • It is a nice scene but I hope you don't mind a couple of suggestions. Both my NX cameras make questionable auto white balance choices as landscape images are often a bit blue. Yours seems to have ...
  • Thanks. 12mm is really just one step away from fisheye so this lens performs very well given how wide it is. If you really want to test it to the limit, i'd go for made made objects at the edges ...
  • As a mostly scenic photographer, I'm more interested than many in sharp everywhere lenses. I've pixel peeped many and have often been unimpressed, but your 12mm looks good. It would be helpful to ...
  • Very nice, they look like Lantana Camara's (no not camera). I'm am surprised they would use them in parks because I think they can be toxic to animals.
  • Created discussions NX3000 review up on ephotozine
    Looks OK but so far I think I prefer the old 20-50mm lens. http://www.ephotozine.com/article/samsung-nx3000-review-25764
  • Thanks, it is Bodiam Castle in East Sussex
  • Thanks, I've added the colour versions above.
  • Here they are in colour. I've tried tp keep the PP and Crops the same.
  • Thanks, taken with the 20-50mm which has nice uniform sharpness across the frame.
  • Created photos Some scenic B&W's
    Hope you like.
  • I'm only guessing, but as your buildings are so well exposed and the lightening strike is not blown out, I am thinking you caught the end of the strike not the whole thing. If this is the case you ...
  • It is a fine photo which tells a story. One issue though is banding in the sky, unless it's my laptop which is struggling.
  • It was sent to Germany with my camera for correction but I still considered it sub par. However discussing sharpness is problematic as it depends on the type of photo taken. You can get the edges ...
  • If you want sharp across the frame I would not get the Tamron. It is great in the center but poor around the edges, not good at all for everything sharp scenic photos. I dumped mine.
  • Well done, I looked at a couple at a larger size and the 12mm seems to be performing well. I would want to bump them too if no one commented. The problem is that there are so few people here ...
  • Commented on Quick Review: That Steady Thing article

    My dad made me one I designed a few years back, I've posted a picture in the open forum.

  • It is very useful but in some cases there isn't something handy to rest on (wall, lamp post) to get the camera in the right place. Ultimately a tripod is better.
  • Very nice.
  • Created photos M3 halftrack
    Another photo which looks better in B&W. Re-tone-mapped for a bit of clarity. Please view 100% as dpr re-sizing is a bit iffy. WWII comes to Bodiam Sussex
  • It is worth considering that 3-5m is just a fraction away from infinity for many lenses, as most of the focus travel is for the first metre or so. You are probably talking about 2 degrees of turn. ...
