  • 1, 2, 4, and 8 show you have a strong, consistent vision. That's more important than camera features. (My main worry with Pentax is slow AF but heck those subjects weren't going anywhere very fast…) ...
  • Dan Your whole series of Himalayan sets has been inspirational. Thanks so much Paul
  • You can. Or at least you can on my iPhone, which isn't an X. Simply go to the 'Recently deleted' album, then hit 'delete all'

  • Agreed. I had held on to Aperture for years because it was easy to do brush-based layer edits, but then Apple gave up on it so eventually I did too. Switched to Capture one Pro, reprocessed some ...
  • Replied in Two Lion Heads
    Coming to his defence, here's the Pixelmator histogram. No spike at 256, just a nice peak a little further back. I lowered the tones and even the rabbit's forehead isn't blown out. Anyway, if this ...
  • Replied in Two Lion Heads
    Hi I love your high-key look. Meanwhile your title reminded me of a shot I took last week at the zoo in Lyon, France, which might carry the same caption. K3 ii with 55-300PLM. Paul
  • I hate to shout, but would people selling stuff learn that I won't buy it unless they take the trouble to understand that DISCRETE means separate from, which is not what these people mean. They...

  • Nice shots. At full magnification one or two of them have a little motion blur or heat-haze to take the edge off sharpness, but the ones of Nick Tandy's car are absolutely spot-on. Paul
  • Wow two Vampires in the air together. My father flew them in National Service, in around 1959. We tried to get him a flight in one for his 70th birthday 51 years later, but we couldn't find any ...
  • Lumix GM1 not worth a mention? The camera that really pushed the size down. Yes, it's so small it's a pain to use, but if you really need to get a good picture out of a tiny black box, nothing...

  • Created discussion thread Case for primes
    Since getting a 16-85 I've wanted some way of looking after my short primes. Not to use when shooting, as they'll be in my shoulder bag then. But to keep them safe when travelling around and at ...
  • Replied in K3ii ISO Noise
    What RAW software are you using? I have a K3 ii and Capture One Pro 9. I use low levels of luminance noise reduction but a fair bit of colour NR. You must be printing at HUGE sizes to see much ...
  • Replied in Spider
    Nice shot., with the web for context. I had a rather bigger one the other day in the corner of my kitchen. We leave their webs undisturbed because our little daughter hates flies. And our arachnid ...
  • Replied in K-5 win
    Very very good Paul
  • Created discussion thread New-to-me FA28 f/2.8
    A while ago I posted about my F28mm which I dropped and the aperture blades started flopping about. My very good local repairer Sendean Cameras of Clerkenwell said they could fix it, but for £150. ...
  • Great atmosphere and colours. Just how the sunsets are in those parts. And welcome back Paul
  • You did well! Didn't know Jessops did those flash offers. SRS sometimes do and they also have open box deals, which is how I got my 16-85. But £509 really is going some. Which 55-300? The PLM one? ...
  • Ha ha… well at least the FA will look nice and orderly alongside my FA50 and FA135. They're all ugly compared with the M28, M50 and M135 I had in film days, but they're all the same sort of ugly. ...
  • Mike - see my reply to Andrew above. Make me an offer if you like. Paul
  • I have been quoted £150 plus tax (>US$200) to fix so am doing what you advise. Paul
