  • Replied in More Samples
    Not up to the standard of the shot above but a couple from my first outing with the combo last Saturday. We took a walk up the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire (UK). Just a bit of useless info - ...
  • Replied in More Samples
    Superb images but this is just exceptional. I've now received my 18-140 and took it for a walk on Sunday. Not had a chance to post any shots yet but will do so later. Thanks for sharing, Regards, John
  • Replied in No
    Yeah, I got it first time around 😀 but some folk think that if they say it one way, then it has to be right. I think even Chris on DPRTV made a light-heated comment about it. So I was just ...
  • Replied in No
    Not really, if it was just written as "Z" then folks in different parts of the world would just mentally say "Zed" or "Zee" according to whatever pronunciation is correct in their neck of the woods. ...
  • Thanks. It’s a bit of a shame you can’t zero the count, as far as I know, as you can on most ‘normal’ cameras. Not a major problem, just a bit annoying :-( John.
  • Thank you and also to Redhenry. I have contacted the dealer/supplier who are a big company in the UK with department stores as well as an online shop. I intend to keep the phone but will be ...
  • Thank you David, that's what I thought but wasn't sure in view of the earlier comment about 'standard' Raw. But thanks to Edgar_in_Indy for commenting as this has led me to a better understanding. ...
  • Created discussion thread Is this a new iPhone?
    I just took delivery of an iPhone 13 Pro the other day and yesterday took my first two photos. I've only just noticed that they were numbered/named as IMG_0078.HEIC and IMG_0079.HEIC. To me this ...
  • Can I just ask if you mean by using a third part app such as Halide? Or is there any way to shoot Raw using just the Apple Camera app? Thanks, John
  • Thanks Paul, I take delivery of a used (but only 150 shutter actuations) Z50 today and as soon as I satisfy myself it's in acceptable condition I plan to order the 18-140. I used the old F mount ...
  • Me too. Apart from all the buttons being very 'fiddly' I found the tiny viewfinder not exactly brilliant. My eyesight is not the best but not bad but when I came home after photographing the ...
  • I was just wondering why this camera was discontinued. There are a few examples available second-hand (here in the UK) but seemingly no new stock. Was it because the G9 was reduced in price so that ...
  • Replied in Got it !
    Thanks for comments so far. Look forward to more details as and when you get a chance. How do you think it would balance on the X-S10 with its smaller body but quite substantial grip. I know I'd ...
  • So long as people don’t reply to the OP with all the images and we have to keep scrolling through them all :-) Nice and interesting shots though. Cheers, John
  • Replied in Whiteman Park
    Thanks, very helpful. I’m about to get a new A6400 and was thinking of the 18-135 which is sold as a kit with a reasonable saving. Nice and lightweight but I would have added the 70-350 later so ...
  • Replied in Whiteman Park
    Really nice images. How does the 18-300 balance on an aps-c body? I see you had it on a A6600 but do you think it would be ftoo ront-heavy on a A6400?  Just wondering whether the latter would be a ...
  • Replied in From 8 > 13Pro
    Excellent, well composed images. MY 6s just died and I'm currently using my wife's (old) SE (original) while I wait for my 13 Pro. Not likely to get it until the end of November but I can borrow ...
  • Thanks for all the replies everyone. You've answered my question but also raised a few issues I need to think about. But better to think about them now than have buyer's regret in a few months, Tha ...
  • Thanks, I’m guessing their prices are low as they sell ‘grey’ imports (which I don’t mind) but I have a credit at WEX from a trade-in for about half the price which I obviously want to use. Anybody ...
  • Created discussion thread E-M5 Mark III Silver or Black?
    Hi I've been looking at a number of cameras recently for a good quality, lightweight, general purpose and holiday/vacation outfit. There's what seems to be some decent offers here in the UK ...
