  • Being lazy is what kept people out of the hobby, learning exposure was not difficult, what you couldn't do was correct mistakes easily. Photoshop is difficult to learn properly but that hasn't...

  • yeah well I also have others, the Rollei wasn't bought as a museum piece or as an investment. When I consider what my top end Canon would fetch second hand on the market and how that tumbles in...

  • I would say go for the quality film cameras, top end stuff not budget. You will pay more upfront but I'm finding it increasing in value. To the point that my Rolleiflex has increased so much I...

  • From an old guys perspective, I don't think listing features should be a deciding factor in choosing a camera. How well does it do the basics, how easy is it to do the basics and which camera ...
  • Nice pictures on your site Teila. My Wife keeps wanting me to get back into weddings/portraits (not done that for 30 years). As much as I like shooting portraits no thanks to weddings, despite ...
  • My own point of view is pixels don't matter that much day to day, I find clients out of ignorance ask for more pixels, then again once they would say it must be 300dpi which is meaningless on it's ...
  • Drones for the most part are useless for my work. The rules and regulations make it so, also strangly enough it would be more expensive and  I doubt you would of got it shot in one day. I had five ...
  • Yeah maybe but I doubt it. Weekend off now. I'll take a couple of cameras with me, my IPhone and a rollei se and a few rolls of HP5 happy shooting all :-)
  • Hi I have answered that further up the post. In a nutshell 5 axis stabilisation in camera, build quality (it feels every bit as tough as my Canons) 36 mpx, ease of use and as it turns out great ...
  • I have a bag full of top end Canon too. I like the Pentax, I also use to shoot the 67 for my work years ago. That worked well, I got rid of all my Hassy gear and switched to the Pentax back then, ...
  • Cheers, I'll check all the nonsense is turned off but I'm not going to shoot to one card.
  • 24mm 70mm f2.8. Firmware is version 1.00 I've got two days solid processing to do now, then off to London to pick up a hangover. But yes I intend to reproduce on the ground....that doesn't sound ...
  • It's a mixture sometimes a few seconds, then I might want to do 4 or 5 very quickly, I was working solidly for 1.5 hours the camera got slower towards the end 600 ish shots taken in that time.
  • Everything is turned off, with the exception of gps and stabilisation, I only shoot raw but save to both cards. Saving to only one card is not an option, if the camera only has one card slot it ...
  • Hi Tex, I don't consider myself a fast shooter, I never use a camera on motor drive. As for other settings all off, not interested in them,. the only things I need are an aperture and shutter speed ...
  • What made it feel worse (I know this is an unfare comparison) but I shoot along side a 1DX I've had for a number of years. It doesn't miss anything, the shots in the bag as soon as you thought ...
  • Created discussion thread K1 living with it
    First off let me say I'm sat looking at yesterdays shoot and the images shot on the K1 are very very good. I like the camera, the build is top class, the features are first class, if I just want to ...
  • Created discussion thread K1 comparisson
    I was just searching through my library and came across some images shot on a Nikon D800 with the 24-70 f2.8, I couldn't help but eyeballing a comparisson with the K1 with 24 70mm f2.8. First ...
  • Commented on article Leica SL Review

    Yeah but Sony cameras are pig awful to use. As for quality of the image more than good enough. How many famous pictures taken since photography began are judged by the grain or lens resolving power...

  • A great camera, would it be my first choice for street photography, probably not, that's not saying you couldn't get good results, it just would not be my first choice.
