  • I have wondered about the Nikon 200-500. My first camera was a Zenith E when I was 10 and a few years later I moved on to the Canon 650 film camera, moving up to the 3, 10D and finally the 7D and ...
  • Ha ha! By 5 I expect them to have part time jobs and be paying rent! I have just discovered that there are some Canon cash back offers on here at the moment, including boosted cash back for buying ...
  • Yup, I think I could make a reasonable amount back. Although I have just seen a used 7Dii in a local shop for £670. I won’t get there for a look today as I am trying to teach the 3 year olds some ...
  • Thanks for your response Kevin. You have given me food for thought - I have just had a look and I can pick up a used 7D for less than £300. That might be worth thinking about if there is an ...
  • Gary and Carl, thanks for your responses. I am definitely thinking about the 7Dii/100-400 combo now. And I am nay spring chicken either! I suppose an optional grip will mean I could vary the size ...
  • I am sure whatever I get will work well for photographing the lads too...  I have many, many photos of the lads taken with Canon/Fuji gear. And iPhones... I am asking about minimal equipment for ...
  • Pithy. Any thoughts on the question asked about the gear? Can’t ask 3 year olds to carry my stuff....
  • Created discussion thread 7dii instead of 1D4
    (1) Over the last few years I have sold nearly all of my equipment, ranging from the 500mm F4 v1 to the 7D which went a few months ago. The main reason is that I have young twins and have had no time ...
  • Created discussion thread Old Russian viewfinder for M6?
    i have just been rummaging around the attic and found a box of camera bits and pieces still there from my last house move. One item I found is an old 3.5cm viewfinder for the camera flash bracket. ...
  • Light jacket or microfibres towel to wrap gear while travelling between locations. Never put camera back in bag while out! I missed a Snake Eagle flapping within 30 yards with a Puff Adder in its ...
  • I would definitely consider taking the 70-200. You will probably frequently be leaving and returning in the dark and a good, fast lens will enable you shots you might otherwise not get. I have ...
  • Yup and no luck. On the bright side, I have spoken to Fujifilm Repair UK and am going to send it in to them. I might end up with a fully serviced and repaired camera at a silly low price...
  • Thanks Doug, I was wondering if that must be the issue. Best check the cost for a repair! Or just sell it on for spares/repairs... thanks again
  • I should have said - I can view images from a memory card and access all the functions and settings, just can't see what the lens should be seeing!
  • Created discussion thread XT10 and lens not communicating?
    Apologies if this is a really stupid question. I recently bought a 'faulty' XT10 on eBay. I thought it was worth a punt and have got my money back from selling the included kit lens. The bumph ...
