Been in Photogging most of my life - love it. Been a Photographic Judge for years, simple purpose, to help others as much as I can.

  • My point exactly.  Nice shot Augustin. P.S.  The second one but only slightly. rat.
  • I've tried this and you can choose any pic still in the camera.  For what it's worth, I only keep a few pics actually in the camera. Just a few reference shots to help my friends who also have a ...
  • Robin,  Sweeping statements like you've just made make people think, 'why doesn't this guy put his money where his mouth is and show us crap camera owners what he can do?' If you are capable of ...
  • Once you've nailed a decent bird shot, press the button on the back of the camera to show what you've taken. Press Menu and up will come Quick Retouch.  You will immediately notice a difference in ...
  • The thing that stands out most to me in your superb pictures, is that you have shown WHITE birds.  White plumage is surely the most difficult thing a camera can show.  So often it is 'whited out' ...
  • I too was pleasantly surprised when I tried 'Quick Retouch' on one or two of my aircraft shots.  I had seen the screen when checking the camera out but idly thought it only applied to portraits, ...
  • I really don't know why you guys all place so much faith in Raw. If you got the picture right in the first place you wouldn't feel you needed it. Photoshop, Affinity, Lightroom etc all have the ...
  • Best squirrel picture I've seen in ages.  I love stuff that makes you laugh out loud.  Thanks for sending it to us. I've got a garden full of the little blighters, none so funny as yours. rat.
  • You remind me of the guy who races past me, but I catch him up at the traffic lights. If you want rocket speed from your cameras then do as I do, for instance. 8000 sec BIF, I use my Canon 80D, no ...
  • Created discussion thread P900. Another day, another dollar.
    Hi folks, me again. Still banging away on mostly local pics on my property. Obviously I am going to run out of bird varieties soon. Still, it doesn't hurt to keep using the camera so as to get a ...
  • Wow!.  They are really impressive.  The Saturn shots intrigue me, since we won't be able to see it until after the end of May. I agree that one should keep trying, as I think there are various ...
  • Replied in 80D Finally
    I have  an 80D which is probably one of Canon's best efforts so far.  Brilliant performer. I only use two lenses with it.  24-105 L and 70 - 200 L.  Inside the ranges they are capable of handling, ...
  • Thanks Lin, Re Jupiter.   I understand what you are saying.  The problem is that the tiny image blossoms out into a large disc just as you think you've got it in fine focus. On any other camera, it ...
  • Thank you kind sir. I'll tell all three of them!   They quite like multi-coloured visitors. They have a regular black and white caller who sings to them from time to time just outside the window. ...
  • Hi Folks, Just a few more shots from my replacement P900. Haven't been anywhere interesting, so these are from around the house. You will gather that we live with cats, not the other way round. ...
  • Nice one Robbo.  Love to see birds actually doing something. rat.
  • Sorry Augustin.  I presume you mean Facebook format. Not guilty. Never use Facebook. Didn't even know there was such a format. I merely save for the web, which keeps the file sizes down.  Always ...
  • I notice that a lot of correspondents are not very happy with the current P900. They all say they want a later generation of the same thing, but with knobs on. I wonder if they have any idea just ...
  • The first thing I did when I got my second P900 (first one was rubbish, so it went back) was to take the same shots as far as possible that I had done before with the dud. The airfield shot (7 ...
  • Thanks for your replies, guys.  I agree with the comment about lens hoods.  Some are better than others, but they will give some protection, not as much as a lens cap though.  The other side of ...
