  • It has only been 4 weeks and I will keep practicing . I am a bit of a perfectionist and my keeper rate has dropped substantially . As to refresh rate , I will delve into the manual .
  • Yes , its my timing and framing that are not quite right compared to using the Canon , which I knew so well . Focussing and using the menus and dials and getting correct exposure has been ok .
  • I agree I need to accept I am just not going to be so proficient to begin with and accept the challenge
  • I am travelling for a year and just have a backpack . There was no way I could carry all the weight . It was heavily used and needed replacing at some point . When I am settled again I may end up ...
  • I do miss the Canon full frame but not its weight .  I will give it a year I think , perhaps I will return too
  • Created discussion thread Change of system
    I have gone and exchanged all my Canon equipment for a FujiXpro2 and my photography is not quite hitting the quality levels as before . I am sure that it takes a while to become fully conversant ...
  • Yes , that had occurred to me . I have reduced my gear down to a minimum and will be making sure it is either on my person at all times or securely locked away . The advantage of changing your ...
  • I won't have household cover as my property is sold and all the cover I did have null and void
  • Created discussion thread Insuring your Photographic equipment
    I am going abroad for a year and have arranged my travel insurance to cover medical and general baggage etc but this does not provide gadget cover for my camera equipment or Macbook. I can find ...
  • I went into my local Apple store and compared the 13 to the 15 Macbook Pro and the compromise will be size and weight . A 13 inch Macbook pro will have to suffice as it would be silling lugging a ...
  • This subject is doing my head in . I am going away for a year and my 27iMac will be in storage . I want to be able to use Lightroom and Photoshop and have them work smoothly , yet does not want to ...
  • Well I hope i am pleased with the Sony RX1R II as i have just decided to trade in my Canon 5D mk 111 and lenses  . The 5D mk III was heavily used and needed replacing soon and i agonised over the ...
  • I hope you have a great time but I have to agree with everyone else . I found the place aggressive and unpleasant and photographers were viewed with suspicion unless you were willing to pay . I ...
  • Replied in Travel light
    My property is up for sale , so as soon as that is done but that could be 3 months , could be 6 , you never know . I reckon it is unlikely before July , but then May and June are the loveliest ...
  • Replied in Travel light
    I took a quick look at your web page . I have done 3 months on the usual back packer route before but this time i intend to be away a year and concentrating on SE Asia and India / Nepal . Why ...
  • Replied in Travel light
    My interest has pared down to people , portraits and place . Street photography , candids but mainly people at work , play . Not so interested in Landscape anymore , so I feel I can get rid of ...
  • Replied in Minimum spec
    It does , trying to figure out the practicalities and costs of an extended trip and if editing on the journey makes practical and economic sense , rather than just enjoy and record your ...
  • Replied in Minimum spec
    I have also looked at cost , and backpack travelling around with such an expensive bit of kit becomes a worry and something else to carry . Perhaps i should consider that travelling light and ...
  • Replied in Minimum spec
    Yes , storage is less important than the ability to handle current Photoshop/ Lightroom software and screen size and resolution . I am used to editing on my 27inch iMac with 32GB of memory and not ...
  • Created discussion thread Travel light
    I have the opportunity to spend a year travelling in India and SE Asia and have been reviewing my camera equipment and considered exchanging my Canon 5D mk 111, which has been well used , my 85mm ...
