  • The important thing is that it is peer to peer, phone to camera, not through your router.  That's probably good for network security and may seem inconvenient but is straightforward once you have ...
  • Based on my experience with the P10 (not P10 Pro or Mate): No optical zoom, if you select 20Mp definition no zoom at all. If you select anything below that and jpeg the first 2x of zoom range is ...
  • My P10 will save as RAW but only in 20mp mode.  It doesn't zoom in 20mp mode though. I never use RAW, the in camera jpeg does a good job including I suspect lens distortion correction.
  • Back in 1989 I was in a fairly senior job in the UK subsidiary of a German company which had its head office in Berlin close to the wall. When the wall came down the joy was palpable, the company ...
  • Lets face it, however much kit you carry you will never get the same results as someone who can take full frame, huge tripod and spend hours waiting for the light. On a vacation you are normally ...
  • If you press the playback button, after a short while the lens should retract because you are not using it.  Pressing shutter release button briefly makes it re-open ready for action. What happens ...
  • Mentholated spirits might just be ghosts eating mints!  :-) Methylated spirits is a mix of ethanol and usually c. 10% methanol - actual contents vary by country.  Here in UK it has a violet dye, in ...
  • I went through the same thinking recently.  I have some good Pentax DSLR kit and an RX100M2.  For the last 2 years I have left the DSLR at home for short European trips (budget flights, hand ...
  • I have a fairly old (c 40 years perhaps) Federal tripod, a budget brand made in Japan which is solid by today's standards.  Pan and tilt head, ratchet crank centre column. The mounting plate is a ...
  • My M2 suffered the same problem. There is a factory fit screen protector, so well fitted its hard to spot but run your fingernail round the edge you will feel it. I suspect over time moisture gets ...
  • I have never been tempted to spend a big bucket full of money on a camera that will only give marginal improvement - I save my cash for real leaps in technology.  I got the RX100 M2 because we ...
  • I've been to Disney a couple of times. Look around you, which families are having the best time? The ones running around and maybe taking selfies on phones, or the ones where Dad is lugging stacks ...
  • Why not just buy a roll or two of 35mm print film and run it through, see what works and what doesn't.  Low cost, nothing lost.  Button cell in the pentax likely to need replacing. You sometimes ...
  • Sony support website (always a good place to start) lists the adapter for RX100 and RX100M2 only - doesn't list any adapter for the M3 onwards. Reverse lookup - from filter holder part # to ...
  • The old M series (I have the traditional 'set' of 3 from my MX and Program A days, 28 2.8, 50 1.7 and 135 3.5) have some other advantages.  I use them with my Kx and Kr (not bought anything more ...
  • When I was a student back in 1970, if I needed to do some calculations I used pen and paper, log tables, slide rule, brain. Regression analysis of experimental results took hours. Desktop four ...
  • You will be going from a 28-100 equivalent lens to a 24-70, which might suit street photography better.  I have an M2 (28-100, no viewfinder) and find the flip out screen useful, using a proper ...
  • While we are on the subject, I live near Duxford and have membership so sometimes just go there for a walk. One Friday afternoon last year, someone was setting off for a weekend away ..... bit of ...
  • Great is (was) the glory of Kodachrome .... I remember the excitement when Kodachrome 64 came out, 2 whole stops faster than Kodachrome 25, the only decent slide film available at the time.  Now we ...
  • I did pretty well with a Tamron 28-70, Pentax MX, Kodachrome 64 and a polarising filter for some shots, back in 1988 ..... Been there 4 times in total.  Some thoughts. North Rim is different, much ...
