About me:

Our website (see HomePage link) gives useful info about the Zone 8 Photo Society. Articles on the main website (http://www.photosnowdonia.co.uk) are only occasionally updated because the Society Members have their own Forum website, with lots of Technical Information Leaflets (printable) on a wide range of topics, constantly updated and with new additions, which together with their Newsletter and Free Advice Service, provides a unique source of information on a wide range of photographic and computing topics.
Equipment: Sigma SD9 (since day one) still working fine and SD14 now joined that. Kodak 14n (used for specific work). Also still have 5x4 and 6x9 film cameras, etc.

Zone8's recent activity

  • Last week, at a small meet-up of members of the Zone 8 PS, one member brought along some A2 size prints from the Nikon 810 with the 24-120 Nikkor lens. The prints were stunning for pin sharp ...

    Get Obama to ban cans of baked beanz immediately, if not sooner, to prevent galeforce winds in that area.  ;-)
  • The leaf had actually come from this oak - although must have been shed in Autumn in 2015 as it has not yet got to the UK either. I was there last week for a special meeting and to have some fun ...
  • I did, I did - so thanks for those shots Larry. My BUT was because out here in España, our Autumn doesn't even start until around third week of November and at least here in Southern Andalucía ...
  • You should not feel too worried about the situation - in the past a couple of friends (separately and at different times) felt the same.  One had a break for several years then suddenly, visited ...
  • Replied in Consider this!
    As it's only a short time, perhaps the OP could not yet get back.  I do agree if it was as urgent as it seemed to be, from the posting, revisits should have been somewhat quicker. Mind you - on a ...
  • ... you could get a 10.6" CHUWI dual-boot tablet with Android and Windows 8.1 upgradable free to Win 10 that would take Photoshop versions. Even a free Android LITE version of Photoshop that might ...
  • Sorry this is very brief as just back from overseas family visit and have some catching up to do.  It looks like the instructions going to the printer are different - for example, one could be ...
  • Oooooo Errrrrrr!  You forgot to metion the people had also disappeared, stranger indeedie, when train spotters surely are known to stand for years in the same spot.  :-)
  • For me, +3. Initially I found some problems with Firefox - like couple of years ago - but once I went into the Settings, resolved any issues quite quickly. It's been my default browser ever since. ...
  • Replied in Groannnnn!
    No way, Miguel.  I use - and always have - cameras for making prints but good luck to those who sit in front of their monitors trying to pixel-peep.  I find far better things to do but each to his ...
  • I put another on your other thread Mike but this is actually No:18 and the very first I took with the SD9.  I was in the UK then and got one of the very first SD9s to enter the UK - had to wait ...
  • If you go into Control Panel, you should find one icon relating to input devices - or even just Mouse or Touchpad.  It is then possible to change the characteristics in sense can make it ...
  • I use Multi-Commander Dave. Find the two-panel facility and good range of features ideal. http://multicommander.com/
  • Replied in One for Ted!
    Nothing to do with anything really, Ted but have always wanted (now doing it) to make the comment/old joke (in a UK humorous sketches show, many moons ago) about the ranch owner, introducing ...
  • Replied in SD9 in 2003
    Interesting set of images with an equally interesting commentary. I got my first digital camera = the SD9 - inspired by seeing the images on DPR that Phil had taken - to my mind they did (and ...
  • "There are Pixels at the bottom of my garden .... " Tra La .... "A Pixel a Day stops Jpegs having Tiffs" (petty quarrel, especially one between friends or lovers)
  • I have computers and tablets - and the mobile Lenovo K50 phone (excellent) - and gave up on Chrome long ago. After configuring - easy - I have stuck now for past couple of years with the much ...
