  • Replied in Advice Please!
    Interesting set of posts. The P900 has a lot more going for it than just the colossal zoom. Everybody has a go at the moon at least once. That is usually enough. Does it very well indeed. The ...
  • I'm afraid that no matter how many times we take pictures of it,  it will never improve from looking like a ping pong ball with a bad case of acne. Trouble is, we're stuck with it for good. Even ...
  • Roses out in December?  Now THAT is something! You are very gifted my friend. rat.
  • Good enough. rat.
  • Pictures like this Augustin are just what we all like to see, so don't worry about posting them. I am particularly Impressed since I live out in  the country with no lights or buildings visible at ...
  • If I was entering a photo contest, I would read the competition requirements very carefully, decide whether I could do what they asked, then go out with a definite target in mind. The camera I ...
  • Why mess about charging from camera? I use the Jiexi unit from Amazon. Under £10 and it even gave me 2 spare batteries! Both as good or better than the Nikon supplied. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Batt ...
  • Maybe this will be of some help with zooming the P900. Some years ago I made myself a small beanbag.  Bit of cloth, some old beans or peas and sewed it up. Some of my best shots at up to 7 and a ...
  • I'll start putting exifs in. I didn't know a\bout the PP destroying data. Thanks for info. rat.
  • Superb array of pictures Augustin. They are so good I've cancelled my holiday there. After seeing your images I just don't need to go. Terrific work and so much patience putting it all together for us.
  • Further to the Oil Spillage thing, I found this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq17Y1i3g_M New venture apparently. I suppose it came around here because somebody kicked over a bucket of oil at ...
  • The runway is just under 10,000 ft.  Designated an emergency landing space for the Space Shuttle.  There could possibly be a longer one at Fairford.  Not sure. Not to worry, spends most of its time ...
  • Created discussion thread P900, things in the sky, et als.
    live near an airport. But you'd never know it. Aircraft? What aircraft? Rarely see one. Longest runway in the UK and they only send up about three or four holiday jets a day. Never in my direction. ...
  • Simply stunning.  Not many people will know what these things actually look like close up.  Scary isn't the word. I would have thought a ring flash would be the ideal lighting source. If you don't ...
  • For what its worth, I tried setting my Speedlite to 'slave' function. This had no effect whatsoever.  I then wiped the data and went back to square one.  Left the Speedlite In its normal setting ...
  • USYK-38 Wireless Hot Shoe Flash Remote Slave Trigger, is its name. Hope this helps anyone wanting to buy one. rat.
  • Created discussion thread Slave Flash with P900
    About one inch square. Having unsuccessfully tried to make my Canon Speedlite perform in the slave mode with the P900 I decided to go a different route. Looking around for a suitable trigger unit I ...
  • Charivari - Odds and Sods where I come from rat.
  • Created discussion thread P900 - Charivari
    Our friend Setter Dog complains that few P900 pics are shown on this Forum. This is sad because everyone who has one MUST have some interesting shots to share. My shots interest me, but I am not ...
  • Got to agree about this camera being fun.  My expensive Canon and all its 'L' lenses have gathered dust since I got one of these. Can't think why.  Unless its because the P900  takes such fabulous ...
