  • I leave my UV filter on all the time. Have yet to see any evidence of it affecting IQ. The flat surface is also easier to clean. Thick ring filters can cause vignetting issues at wide angles.
  • Have kept the UV filter on my camera with tecent trips to northern Australia, Canada &Alaska. Have not experienced any focus issues. While on a 3 hour hike on a Canadian glacier into a strong ...

  • She's just trodden in dog poo, he's calling out to the bridesmaid for help ( he needs another beer). You have captured the moment brilliantly. Definitely a keeper ! 😜
  • Well expressed Aaron 801. I agree with your response. I think the personalities of the bride & groom should determine whether you show them. if you feel either would be offended, don't show them ...
  • Yes you most probably could. It may have been more difficult though to be able to see and accurately time the shot at the precise moment the leopard lifted its front paw which I was able to clearly ...
  • Replied in HX90v vs A6000
    Good comparison with a fair summation. Wouldn't look overly bad in print either as well as social media.
  • My LUMIX FZ 200 has a aperture of f2.8 through entire zoom range of 28- 600 mm equiv. Both these images taken at max 600 mm equiv zoom hand held using the FZ 200. Subjects for both images were ...
  • Nice shots of the Fezza. Glad you shot B&W as well. Works well for distracting backgrounds and also on old cars to give a sense of history. Attached  are a few more ideas for your future car ...
  • Yes, the small sensor on my FZ 200 LUMIX can clip highlights. To minimise this I set my exposure compensation to - 2/3 stop for bright daytime photography and always use the histogram when shooting ...
  • Jeez I'm glad I brought up the mobile phone vs "real camera" debate. this is what I have learned from the responses to my post: 1. If I were to hire a professional photographer I should ask them if ...

  • I upgraded from my FZ 200 to a Sony RX10IV five months ago. Compared to the FZ 200, the most noticeable differences for me are: The Sony is a lot sharper at 600mm; my keeper rate on birds in flight ...
  • Replied in Some parrots
    Instead of lying on my belly I put the camera on the ground or brace it against my bent lower leg and use the swivel screen to compose and take the shot. I use my right hand thumb to press shutter. ...
  • Yes there are examples of cybershot images on this forum but they are widely spread and to access them I have needed to scroll uneccesarily through long menus and open numerous posts. Having ...

  • Hi Jack ,attached are examples of framing I regurlaly use. It is a great technique and simple to master. For some of these shots where the image was small and hidden amongst foliage, I used spot ...
