  • My understanding is that the CC + LR ' photographers' pack it's now permanently that price. It used to be an introductory offer but I think it is more the full time cost.
  • I don't think you can purchase any more but the new subscription rate of $10 or £9 p/m including Lightroom is I think reasonable value. I know others disagree but assuming you upgraded under the ...
  • Don't forget you have the Peak District on the door step. 20 mins drive one way and I am in the heart of the old industrial area and 20 mins the other some of the best countryside in the whole of ...
  • It's bizarre. Our neighbours have lived here 30 years and they didn't know about it! We live in a pretty big northern England city-Sheffield-which had some spectacular scenery not far away but this ...
  • Created discussions I had fun today!
    I went out to a nature reserve 20 minutes from my house today. Lived here 11 years and never knew it was there. It was brilliant, lots of water birds and waders. Insects, flowers, reed beds etc. An ...
  • I am not sure that lenses that have already been upgraded should be included on the list.  The 70-200 for example has been through 3 iterations to the current level (counting the 2.8 non-IS version). ...
  • And once you get stung by import duties etc the difference is usually not much and not worth the hassle and risk of whether it is covered by warranty.
  • Could be a test site - sometimes when trying a new layout a company will have some people go to the old site and some to the new to get some feedback as to how people react to the new site before ...
  • I used my X Pro 1 to shoot a wedding recently and it performed admirably.  Really impressed with the results. It has taken me some time to get it set up just the way I like it but take the time and ...
  • Yet another reason for the DP3M :) - ok I'll stop going on about it now!..
  • It does however have a 7 frame buffer which mitigates the long write times to an extent...
  • I asked about portraits a while ago in the Sigma forum. Search there for DP3M and portrait and my post plus responses are a little down the list with the title something like Should I buy a DP3M. S ...
  • An FF camera in itself does not necessarily have a high IQ than an crop sensor. OK glass on an FF will not give as good results as really good glass on a crop and some crop cameras have exceptional ...
  • But boy can you crop.  An example from my DP2M of the level of detail retained: Full shot 100% crop but can you guess where in the photo You can pretty much see the detail of the people and bear in ...
  • I have never been a birder but simply because I have never been able to afford the lenses.  Having inherited my father's 5D3 and 70-200mm f2.8 IS II L  and 300mm f4 L I felt it about time I gave ...
  • I've just had to do exactly the same.  Inherited my father's 5D3 and as I am planning to do more shoots needed a second body. After much thought I went for a 7D.  Controls are very similar, build ...
  • Sigma DP3M - £350 here in the UK and with a 75mm-ish FL good for portraits.  Plus you can crop a DPxM image as much as you want with barely any loss in detail. Decent flash as well and all in you ...
  • All lovely shots but the last one in particular does it for me.  Beautiful use of monochrome, perfectly exposed and composed and really gives a sense of isolation (the sort I sometimes crave it ...
  • I too am new to the 5D3 (though not to DPR).  It is a fantastic camera - really up there with the very best (stuff the comments about old sensor tech etc - matters not!). The f1.8 nifty fifty is ...
