  • Replied in Yes..
    because Pro equipment never breaks and all the  Pro repair services set up by the various brands sit twiddling their thumbs all day long.
  • I'm not sure I follow the logic of this thread. If Canon started using new manufacturing techniques such as moulded plastics back in the late 1970s it allowed them to create a greater variety of ...
  • Firstly, have you seen the exchange rate. The dollar is worth fluctuating around a range 75 pence to 85  pence. And yes, it is not just VAT. It is also higher minimum wages   employer National ...
  • Actually we do not get 'screwed'. We live in a country (like much of Europe) with higher welfare and  local services and hence higher taxes to pay for it. We also have things like higher minimum ...
  • It all depends what you mean by 'significantly improved' but this belief that sensors will continue to improve 'significantly' from an IQ point of view is highly unlikely. Basically, they haven't ...
  • It may be a fashion accessory but a Billingham bag will last a lot longer than his camera and lenses. They start to get broken in after ten years....
  • I think a Hadley Pro would work but you might want to consider the slightly larger Hadley one. Personally I dislike bags that require careful packing when I want to swap lenses 'in the field' and ...
  • The Sony 20mp 1 inch sensors don't appear to be handicapped by having much higher pixel density than m43.

  • If Uruguay can reach the football World Cup quarter finals with a third less population than Scotland then there is always a chance. And similarly New Zealand with a smaller population can ...
  • Also very different in capabilities.
    I used Olympus OM cameras for decades and also my cousin's Pentax MX and I still miss the simplicity and ease of use, enabling me to concentrate on the subject...

  • He'll have to post 4 times as much to become a FF forum Pro of course,
  • Replied in Robin Wong
    Robin Wong left Olympus nearly 3 years ago. https://robinwong.blogspot.com/2017/04/with-heavy-heart-i-have-left-olympus.html
  • I'm sorry to hear that. In the days before electricity and gas lamps that was the sleeping pattern of most people. People used finish work and eat and then sleep relatively early and then have a ...
  • Rather than worry about the maths  I'm actually more concerned that you appear to have stayed up all night responding to this thread :-) I hope you were not sitting there trying to figure it out.....
  • The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene, which as a layman I think is a better book, also only has the same  E=MC squared equation. It must be the only equation that publishers think is famous enough ...
  • It always amuses me when people make are so against plastic objects. Between about 1930s when they first started appearing and up to the early 1960s, plastics were considered a premium material and ...
