  • Thanks for that info. The flashgun has sold and the add-on lens is still up. SirLataxe
  • Having not used my Samsung Ex1 camera for a good while, I gave it to a granddaughter, I'd bought a flashgun and add-on WA lens for it when I first got it but the granddaughter isn't interested in ...
  • I've had a think about your post for a few months and .... First I should mention that I speak softly but at great length, whilst hiding my big stick so as not to over-excite big loud lads ...
  • Replied in your stuff.
    Your list is an interesting illustration of a cultural mind-set. It contains some illuminating clichés, assumptions and socio-economic attitudes. Quite fascinating from the anthropological  point ...
  • A Canon G5, which replaced a Pentax ME Super film camera and 3 prime lenses. It was a good first digital camera, getting good reviews at the time for both its functions and IQ. But I didn't make ...
  • Indeed. Have a peek in that mirror over there. Chemo - it's an adventure, eh!? I found mine a useful aid to introspection, amongst other things. Consideration of others' probable mental states. :-) ...

  • Eh? SirLataxe PS Would you care to swap pseudonym etymologies? I would like to know the meaning (if any) of both the Xeno bit and the string of digits.
  • Why do we humans go on trying to predict the future when history shows we are incredibly bad at it? I suppose it's down to some sort of delusion that we can and do control things. Of course, it is ...
  • Replied in Pentax K-1
    If skills don't need (much) gear then surely a pinhole camera will do?  :-) SirLataxe
  • Behind your question there seems to be an assumption that there's a singular cause of "good pictures". In fact, good pictures are made so by a large number of factors. the contribution of which ...
  • If it's the spinning disc version (seems likely) have you defragged it or allowed Windows enough time to do so automatically before you switch it off or disconnect it? Over time, a disc that's not ...
