  • My websites (five of them) are on totally different subjects, and the domain names reflect the subjects. They are static info type sites and don't need much updating. They are all within a single ...
  • Replied in New web site
    If the website you are referring to is www.battleswithbokeh.com, I tried looking at it and it is a shame that I was taken aback by immediately getting a stark screen nagging me to update my ...
  • It is hard to find any TLA that does not have another meaning already.
  • They stopped making flash equipment a couple of years ago. I believe they now make electric scooters instead :-|
  • Two people in fact, a shoe-shine boy and his customer.  Some analysts claim to detect a third person, in a window of the white house in the foreground.
  • Ebay.  A lot of people have commented against Ebay because: no guarantee, you can't see it first etc.  But there is not much you are able to see before you purchase these days, bricks and mortar ...
  • Tax on an Ebay purchase?  What counry is this?  Not the UK unless it is from a big dealer. Some Ebay items are overpriced, but others are not.  You simply don't buy the former. If you watch Ebay ...
  • Pentax are owned by Ricoh these days, a large thriving company which is content to keep their camera divisions (Pentax plus Ricoh cameras) going for niche parts of the market.
  • They can be useful.  If (for example) intending to buy a used item from Ebay you can check what accessories should come with it.  A ring flash might need its own special adaptor to a lens thread, ...
  • There is a difference between being proud of something and bragging about it. As a techie I appreciated well engineered things (not necessarily high tech). I own stuff that I am proud of without ...
  • The GN of 38 is in metres, not feet, so it is in fact quite a strong flash unit for a hotshoe mounted one. Neewer's website Regrettably, the TT560 does not seem to have any on-board aid to setting ...
  • I don't know whether you are still trying to give the OP advice or have gone OT, but his flashgun does not have TTL capability. From Neewer's website, albeit in bad English  : Note: Don't support ...
  • Building a website is a different matter from hosting one, although many hosting companies offer both as a package.  Buying a domain name is a different matter again, although many hosting ...
  • The physical size of the hotshoe and the position of the centre contact (the flash trigger connection) and grounding contact are the subject of an international standard.  The standard is not ...
  • How do you know they are using super high shutter speeds? They are probably not, but if they are, they will using a more advanced flashgun than the Neewer TT560, which I have just looked up and ...
  • Replied in TTL Flash
    Manual exposure setting is much harder and slower to get right than TTL; for one thing you need to estimate the distance and then apply the flash formula, after which you then need to apply any ...
  • And I'm one of the minority buyers where Ebay sided with the seller and the courier.  The courier (EVRI) delivered my purchase to the wrong address (never discovered where).  But naturally the ...
  • Maybe the K1000 was, but that was decades ago, and now often compared with the old VW Beetle.   I would say the modern Pentax is more like a Jeep, rugged for the outdoors, heavy, user minority, ...
  • I now pay my electricity bill by cheque and snail mail because the company (SSE, in the UK) hacked me off, so I'm reciprocating. For 10 years I paid by standing order (adjusted yearly) and all went ...
  • Just ignore them if the price is not far below the working value, there is plenty of other S-or-R stuff going for peanuts. Forget professional repairs unless the item is really special. I have ...
