  • Ouch. I'm really disappointed for you, Birdman. It's not a cheap camera and I would have thought you'd get better life out of it than this. It could be worth writing to Nikon and suggesting they ...
  • I think he was looking for his golf ball, rat.
  • Version 2.6 is now out. I downloaded it. I tried it. I uninstalled it. Some people seem to manage to get it working smoothly but I find it a really flaky and clumsy piece of software that simply ...
  • Damn! There I was thinking you'd developed a new, exciting technique with the P1000... :-(
  • Interesting you say that. I was browsing through some of C-B's photos on the Magnum website just yesterday and thinking something similar. Many of the images were dark, lacked detail, weren't ...
  • It's that old story, isn't it - the best camera is the one you have in your hand when the shot is there to be received. Personally I don't much enjoy taking photos with my phone, but you're right, ...
  • Hmm, not sure I agree with your first statement as a universal, Rat, though it could apply to street work. I don't like any kind of imperative when it comes to photography. As I see it, if a photo ...
  • Ah, but I bet they can't pick out a sparrow's eye from 200km away like we can, eh? Eh?
  • Some very nice mono and desaturated work there in the first and last pics. You've really captured the rough and gloomy weather. I like the silhouette shot of someone standing in the tunnel. It ...
  • Replied in P900-mantis
    What a gorgeous shot. I love the splash of red in the background and the pose of the mantis, upside down, like a trapeze artist from Cirque du Soleil. Lovely composition. Les
  • Yes, it's difficult shooting through glass. Does the P7800 accept external filters? A polarizer would have been just the job. I nearly got a P7800 a few years ago but settled on a Canon G16. Can't ...
  • Yeah, me too, rat. I fell in love with it when my dad gave me a Box Brownie when I was a kid and showed me how to develop B&W film in his tiny darkroom under the stairs. 60-odd years later I still ...
  • Replied in Hot sex!
    You're not far off, Augustin. An entomologist friend has identified them as Eurymelops rubrovittata , a member of the leafhopper family Cicadellidae, of the group Eurymelinae, genus Eurymelops. Man ...
  • Lovely shots, Augustin. Sparrows are so active that we never really get to see that they're really quite a pretty little bird. Your shots show us detail that's quite delightful. On a sad note, ...
  • Thanks for the comments, gentlemen. André, I wondered why I couldn't see so much noise until I looked closer and discovered a rich film of dust on my monitor! A quick wipe off and ah yes, there it ...
  • Created discussion thread B&W with the P1000
    Thought I'd try a bit of black and white, just using the Scene setting. I don't normally use Scene but this isn't bad - just set, point 'n' shoot. Big old Eucalyptus at the bottom of our garden Cro ...
  • Created discussion thread Hot sex!
    I don't know what these beetles are but they're having a great time. ;-)
  • Added 4 photos to their gallery

  • Well, it's parked outside the Leasing Centre, bluzman, so out with your wallet, give Old Nick the bird and off you go. Send us a postcard. Les
  • Wow, fabulous shots of the Corvettes. Lotta muscle there. Modern cars are so boring in comparison. As for the GT, I just shake my head in amazement. $450,000 converts to $AUS663,000 at today's ...
