On article Readers' Showcase: Giulio Magnifico (78 comments in total)

In a market (if that's the word) filled with images of the dispossessed, these stand out as stunning - they are images you can go back to again & again - timeless, brilliant work IMHO.

Thanks for the link - photos show so well the tedium, movement and passing images from taking long journeys. Especially liked the outside shot along the length of the train.

bed bug: I must ask, with so many companies now having wireless flash, is there a place for PWs anymore? I sold off my PWs when Canon brought out their wireless system, which works fabulously well. Of cousre, Canon's gear is quite $$$$.

What I find with the Canon set up is reliability = time saved. Right they are so expensive but while others are still setting up I'm done.

On article Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path (1599 comments in total)

Probably it's my age - but have always bought cameras of the same make simply because it felt right for my grip. Find better grip makes one feel more confident re those slower shutter speeds without a tripod and will no longer 'upgrade' beyond my 7D (original) & 5D mark 3. Years back neither Nikon nor Canon changed that much and one always seemed to cope.

If I got lost I asked someone where I was without resorting to GPS and slower download simply meant I had time for a cuppa & a meal before rushing to the next job & not having a mobile meant I couldn't be found if I didn't want to be - but as I say perhaps it's my age!

The 7D suits for wildlife/sports & the 5D mark 3 for just about everything else.

Seriously doubt I will ever upgrade as newer means smaller bodies and a lot of head scratching over smaller dials that I'm just too short sighted to see.

No argument there papa natas - but didn't she take photographs to highlight the point that the highest number of war casualties are civilians and indeed gave her life in attempting to do so?

The press coverage is probably down to that fact that she was a well respected member of the media profession rather than what god or religion (if any) she adhered to - apologies for the delay in answering -

On article Canon EOS 7D Review (30 comments in total)

I'm a wheelchair user and have gone for the 7D because of the increase in range when using a shorter lens over full frame which means though I often cannot get close I often achieve a useable image.

Live on the coast so to avoid problems re dust on the sensor from the beach I purchased a second one a few months back which says, I think, just how pleased I am with the product. Re low iso and noise, possibly because of high light levels from sea reflection and living in a flat open area I personally find no problems but using 2.8 lenses helps. Not professional but have had people use my stuff on their websites - so for my needs the 7D works well - Oh, and if like me you have poor dexterity you'll find the raised buttons really helpful even when wearing gloves.

On article Ten items you should have in your camera bag (288 comments in total)

One thing about being disabled and in an electric wheelchair means you can attach bags side back and carry whatever you want but not always wherever you want to go as "everywhere" is yet to be made accessible - but Hey, swings & roundabouts.
