Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • In 2002 I bought the C/D-40Z/ZOOM, still 3x zoom, but with 4 MP. It destroyed a number of memory cards when I changed batteries while the camera was still turned on. It also eat batteries. That ...
  • Replied in Yes - Self Timer
    There are three buttons above the LCD. The middle is the self-timer. You are right. When I set the self-timer, the LED comes on for a couple of seconds, then blinks for a second or so before the ...
  • Created discussion thread Year 2001 Nostalgia
    I found some 16x11 inch prints from my 2001 Australian visit, so I had a look at my gallery about it. The pictures were all 800x600 resolution in it. So I went back to my camera originals, and I ...
  • I agree that 120fps on video is fun, my P&S do that. But I spend an awful lot of time putting sound on them, so I don't do 120 fps very often. I was hoping for a Canon G3X (600mm reach) update at...

  • For me, it is the Panasonic DMC FZ2500. The last bridge camera I bought (and still own) is the Olympus SP-570UZ from 2008, with a small sensor still. My current pocket zooms outclass it for...

  • Olympus 24x pocket travel zoom SH-2. It is not weather-sealed, but it did not let any sand or spray in on that windy trip. ClearViewer (magnifier) attached via tripod screw. Expect to get nothing ...
  • Started with film in 1958 in Switzerland where I was born. Started with digital in 1997 in New Zealand. Used digital exclusively from 2001, when resolution became 1600x1200 pixels without ...
  • I was at photo school in London, England between 1964 and 1967. We were taught on wooden cameras using 1/4 plate film, removable lenses and sliding lens fronts for perspective correction. Press ...
  • I have three 24x pocket zooms, the newest one has RAW. However, the main thing that affects IQ between the last two is, the SH-2 (with RAW) has less sharpening and less noise reduction in the ...
  • I have three 24x pocket travel zooms, bought at something like US$ 350.- each, intended to complement each other, with redundancy added. For 1" I have to decide that I will get a bridge camera for ...
  • I am contemplating a bridge camera to complement my small-sensor pocket zooms. I have run into the shop (Photo Warehouse New Zealand) twice to look at new offerings. Here is the story so far: Nikon ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - A Long Sunday
    There was a possibility of the Morris Dancers visiting Devonport, but the weather did not look promising. At least the cat thought so - The gig was cancelled. But through the afternoon it cleared ...
  • You are saying that it was NOT a professional relationship - but you have taken financial advantage of it, according to your original post. Her current male acquaintance may suggest to her, going ...
  • If she had never posed, you would have no photos. She created those photos as much as you did. Do you have a model release? Was there any discussion as to what you were allowed to do with the photos? ...
  • I currently use the Olympus SH-2, SH-1 and SH-50 24x pocket travel zooms, in that order of preference. The SH-2 has the most discrete JPEG processing plus RAW. Olympus appears to be disappearing up ...
  • I don't have a 24 inch monitor either - but I do enlarge pictures for printing to 33x23 inch paper. So I do care what my pictures look like big - even though most of them end up at 1600x1200 ...
  • She may now feel that you have used her all along. Should that be the case, she may contemplate taking legal action against you. I suggest you apologize, and back off. Henry
  • She may feel that you have used her all along. Should that be the case, she may seek legal action against you. In my situation, the woman has remained in my life. But towards the end of last year I ...
  • I spent a month going through them, and ditched many of them. Now I have half of these with 35mm negatives and prints in them. Henry
  • Alkaline AAs have typically a charge of 150 milli Amp hours. There are two variations of rechargeable Ni-Me Hydride AA batteries. The original versions did self-discharge without the camera being used.
