  • The G6's are nice little mirrorless camera's, which I still use a fair bit. It doesn't drain the battery very quick, and the bonus it had over my previous GH2 {for my needs}, was that it had a ...
  • Great stuff Paul, I haven't seen a Hobby since I moved away from London, almost 30yrs ago....so great to see, and a nicely taken opportunity!
  • Thanks for the info. The 502ah is almost a certainty for me, and at my age, weight is starting to become a consideration too {camera gear....more than my personal weight}. Fortunately I don't need ...
  • Created discussion thread Manfrotto 502ah
    Hello all, Has anyone here used one of these Manfrotto heads? Whilst waiting to hear if my present head can be restored to full health: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4201135 i am ...
  • gpicc WAS talking about the old ed-if manual focus lenses, and NOT an AF lens....but also their use with an AF teleconverter {which can convert MF lenses into a "sort of" screw-drive AF ...
  • I have owned both, and still use the 3.5 {for video these days}. I felt both were pretty much equal regarding build quality and IQ {good contrast/colour rendering etc, but both prone to CA....which ...
  • If it seems to you that there is almost no ibis whatsoever in the video modes, then yours may actually be the first report of a faulty mechanism that I have seen. I only use my G80 for video, ...
  • Yep, I have just emailed FLM Germany, so shall wait and see what they say....before deciding on whether to proceed. cheers.
  • Thanks for that, I think I shall send both the Canada branch, and Germany an email anyway, and see what they say. Maybe Germany is less hassle, {whilst the UK is still in the EU}, so shall give it ...
  • Replied in See here...
    Thanks, It seems likely that it will have to take a long return journey to Canada, as there seems to be few options in the UK...apart from a few dealers/suppliers etc {who would probably have to ...
  • Created discussion thread FLM ball head
    Hello all, Just wondering if anyone knows of a UK company that services/repairs FLM ballheads. My old FLM CB 58 is in need of restoring, as in recent times there has been some disintegration of one ...
  • Created discussion thread Panasonic 45-150mm oddity
    I bought the above mentioned zoom recently, for occasional video use {bif video only} on my G80...and after some initial testing, I  think it seems quite promising for this purpose, on this camera. ...
  • I could be wrong, but I think the Ex Tele Conv on many/most m43 Panasonics is a straight pixel-level crop....not a crop from crop. Therefore, any potential degrading of Ex Tele Conv is only due to ...
  • Nice!! Good to see some familiar sights {I live near Ennerdale}. I was at the base of Pillar Rock on both wednesday and sunday {I have never climbed it...although I have climbed Pillar a few times}. ...
  • It is possible no one is complaining about this, as it doesn't seem to be a common complaint/behaviour. I have previously owned a gh2 {which had never been hacked}, and it behaved the same as my ...
  • Looks good to me, although a bit too long for my personal taste. I personally have become more comfortable {over time} with producing much shorter/compact wildlife videos {maybe up to two and a ...
  • I agree, It certainly seems far more complex to share a video online, with the intention of conveying a realistic representation of its actual image quality {other important factors aside}, across ...
  • I used to have a few videos on youtube, but stopped uploading them when {as a windows7/IE user} it appeared i was being restricted to 720p viewing only. I also rarely bothered viewing my own videos ...
  • Replied in My first video
    Are those little creatures Ticks? They look very much like the little buggers I am always digging out of my legs!! Either way, an interesting subject for video, and a nice compilation.
  • It doesn't seem to make a huge difference either way, in my experience {I have used both ways}. It may depend on the dead cat quality though, as some are lined inside with an acoustic ...
