  • Good advice so far, Recuva is a free download from Piriform (se their own Site to avoid unwanted add-ons) Could I just add that it's worth enabling Recuva to search for undeleted files and carry ...
  • You refer to dismantling the lens to inspect it..could this be a factor in Nikon's response, Perhaps they did not take kindly to someone fiddling about with the lens before sending it in...
  • Glad to see the DPR staff have dealt with this on this site . However, tracking users movements  and suggesting products  seems quite a  common practice If you find this a problem in general ...
  • I endorse Detritus's comments ,the D300 is a good choice...
  • That's certainly the case in the UK. A photographic driving licence ( a chipped card) or passport is required as proof of identity in many applications. for work, social service benefits , dealing ...
  • You're welcome to look at my galleries on this site...they  might appear to be somewhat mundane, but there are no brick wall or test charts in sight!. Please click on my user name to access them. ...
  • Not what some people might expect of a sunset image, but I just happened to have a camera to hand when I spotted it. Any credit goes to Nature, I decided not to tinker with it as I liked the pastel ...
  • Replied in Sharpness

  • I agree with Victor re. shutter speed.. young kids are seldom completely still!
  • Good to see your problem is solved. On the question of Card Reader failure I it's something that can happen out of the blue. it seems,  as it did with me. In my case, the card reader did not ...
  • Replied in Tiring Cliches
    "Camera A  blows Camera B out of the  water"..referring to a minor advantage. " A good/ pro photographer can  take good pictures with any camera".
  • Me too. However I only did the one..never again!
  • In my opinion, the "Recipocal Rule" is actually just a rough guide. and not very reliable. Bear in mind that IS or similar does of course, help in respect of camera shake but not subject motion. Ma ...
  • Tto my eyes the ""artificial "appearance is largely  caused by oversaturation of the images and possibly a little oversharpening. I've taken the liberty of posting one  of the images with modified ...
  • According to BBC News, Amazon are considering delivering by drone in the UK. Apparently ""out of sight" flying is allowed here. I did check that it's not April 1St. today.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/n ...
  • It might appear a bit obvious, but have you given them a ring and asked them about it? They seem to accept telephone orders anyway. I always order by phone where possible ,it seems to be  less ...
  • Soon after it was released, I bought a Nikon D100 secondhand at an excellent price. The seller said the camera was too complicated for him... I used it for about 10 years and still have it as a spare.
