Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • I own three pocket travel zooms, and a 2008 vintage bridge camera - they all have small sensors. The Olympus SP-570UZ bridge camera is retained because it is solid. Currently I use mainly the ...

  • I do moon shots with my travel zoom with a 1.7x tele-converter attached. So I had a look at the Nikon moon sample, which admittedly was NOT taken at full reach - Apologies for using the highest ...
  • I  keep wondering whether I have the same chip in my Olympus SH-2 from 2015. I also used the Panasonic ZS60 with an 18 MP chip the year after (was asked to set it up for a friend). Between the two, ...
  • I am very interested, but my purchase decisions are not entirely my own. The weight of the P1000 is that of a 2-pint bottle of milk, but I carry four times that weight when shopping. For moon ...
  • When the P900 came out, there were a number of reports about both hardware and firmware problems. I had permission to buy it, but I would never have survived buying a camera before it proved itself. ...
  • Replied in To clarify -
    The middle picture is my processed crop of the Nikon original, which Nikon published at camera size. Only the bottom processed crop comes from my camera original. Thanks for the compliment.
  • From my experience with moon shots, the picture above is Out Of the Camera. My crop from the top picture, expanded and mid-tones darkened in PSE15 Levels. Below, my crop from my Olympus SH-2 + ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - Going Home
    The lights went red, I stopped, got the camera out and took the picture. My hands were on the wheel again by the time the lights turned green. Later, at night I walked to the water front with ...
  • Looks like the B700 does not have Automatic Gain Control for its audio either. That is a pity. I was just about to persuade Sandra to let me have one. Henry
  • My last bridge camera is the Olympus SP-570UZ. In 2008 its 18x zoom was huge. I retain it because it proved sufficiently weather-resistant one Saturday when New Zealand qualified in a Louis ...
  • I would go for the Canon G3X if they updated the Automatic Focusing. Henry
  • Being there at the right time cannot be left to chance. Congratulations. Henry

    I don't take 'great' pictures, but this one, five minutes walk from home, is now my desktop display - Henry
  • 1GB HD? Maybe you mean 1TB. For any useful storage you need 500 GB minimum. In my opinion. an i3 processor is a bit limited these days. How slow? You may be twiddling your thumbs all morning for a ...
  • Thank you. Our cat does ambush her when we are not looking. I know because I keep treading into cat poo when I hang up the washing. Henry
  • We had to put down our Chocolate when she became paralised after one or two strokes. She was only about seven years old. New boarders brought their 17-year-old cat with them - Sorry - wrong camera. ...
  • I am using mostly the Olympus SH-2. This one was an unexpected request - Normally, spontaneous party shoots result in a panic to get the prints out, but not this time. This shot is one of four, ...
  • The cable you need is one with a mini-HDMI plug to fit your B700 at one end, and a standard HDMI plug at the other. The mini-HDMI plug may be different from one camera brand to another. Had a hip ...

    The foam rubber over the microphone holes reduces the wind noise dramatically - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgs_xGMlgWs The video was speeded up x4.25 in AVS Video Editor, which retains the ...
