Confused of Malvern's recent activity

  • I recently bought the Osprey Stratos 36L (very comfortable to use but due to the curved back, it seems to hold less than other 35L backpacks I've had in the past).  I tried the Tenba BYOB 10 but ...
  • This was true of the originl Hitech-Format filters but their latest Formatt HiTech Firecrest filters are cast free. I have both the 10 stop and 16 stop, neither of which give any colour cast.
  • Sure, DPreview have a made a few well publicised errors in the past, most of which have later been corrected but any suggestion that their reviews of Pentax cameras aren't balanced, or worse that ...
  • Replied in Disappointed
    I'm disappointed to say the least! I really couldn't believe, in this day and age, that Pentax would release a new DSLR without some form of articulated screen.  I was convinced they were just ...
  • At the risk of going slightly off topic......an african safari is on my wish list for next year (COVID permitting) but I'm undecided as to the when and where. As you've been several times, which ...
  • I was expecting the announcement in the autumn …...but I was also expecting it to be available very shortly thereafter, not 'a few months later'.  That implies we won't actually see it in the ...
  • Replied in If it sells
    If it sells and makes money then it's obviously a good idea but...… (1) personally, I can't see why anyone would pay a premium price for a silver one compared to the black version - it's just a camera; ...
  • Replied in Sunflower
    Thank you, Eric Much appreciated
  • Yes, Asahiman previously suggested October https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64093412
  • Replied in Sunflower
    Thanks, Anton You make a good point about the vignetting.  I have tried a different crop and re-edited. Sunflower - Infrared 3
  • Created photo thread Sunflower
    Shot in infrared this afternoon see earlier thread https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64294067 These are two different crops of the same image.  Please let me know which version you think is better ...
  • Replied in Launch Prices
    I don't think comparing to current street prices is relevant.  The launch prices of those other cameras would be a more realistic comparator (I don't know where you find that information though).
  • Created discussion thread DA 55-300mm WR PLM
    I've had the above lens for a year or so and love it.  Ordinarily I use it on a K3 (updated with the latest firmware), which I understood was the oldest body with which the lens was compatible. I ...
  • Great images. I particularly like the first one.
  • Exactly those problems led me to adandon the tripod so far as panoramas are concerned. I do a lot of panoramas but they're all hand held - works absolutely fine (at least for landscapes) and I ...
  • I have never heard of sensor wear as an issue.  Any electrical component can fail but I think you are worrying unnecessarily. The shutter on the A9 is rated for 500,000 cycles, so 5,000 actuations ...
  • That sounds like a fairly practical reason for switching!  I've had my plastic holder for something like 20 years and fortunately it hasn't suffered any such mishaps (hope I'm not tempting fate ...
  • Yes, your filters will fit....but I'm intrigued to know what benefit you think the metal holder will offer compared to the normal plastic one?
  • The idea that the K-New will have been designed primarily as a sports camera is stretching credulity I don't recall anyone at the time saying the KP wasn't a true successor to the K3 because it had ...
  • Replied in Huuu????
    We were talking about whether or not the K-New ought ideally to have an articulated screen. I don't see what smartphones have got to do with anything - that's a completely different device. I get ...
