    Hey, thanks! Ok, now I need to think on this one again... :-)

    Thanks for the further endorsement, Doug :-)
  • Replied in for Sailor Blue
    Great recommendation, many thanks. I see that there are actually 3 models of this charger. I can skip the M variant that also charges D and C cells (LOL, don't know when I last had a piece of kit ...
  • Replied in for Fazal
    Thanks very much, Fazal. Huh, I never thought Ikea would be a good place to go to get multi-battery chargers! It actually has 12 separate channels, not bad :-) Cheers! Chas
  • Hi All, I frequently have to charge between 12 and 16 AA batteries at a time (for speedlight flashes). My Ansmann " energy 16 " charger has died, so I'm looking for a replacement (one that isn't so ...
  • @maxnimo, while that's correct (I have one, 12 high CRI LEDs, great for video), they get really really hot (on "turbo", mine is too hot to handle in less than 2 minutes). I wonder how hot these new...

  • Ha ha, exactly! A night-day-night timelapse is exactly the goal :-)
  • hi All, I'm going to Iceland tomorrow (Dec 1), and from Dec 4th-6th I'll be at the Reykjanes Peninsula. Can anyone offer suggestions of great photo locations in the area? A Google search on the ...
  • A quick follow up: heading to Iceland tomorrow. Forecast: rain and solid cloud for a week. So much for the cold-weather prep! :-( but i wanted  to thank everyone anyways. Thanks!
  • Replied in for MVDH
    LOL, that's great advice! I did once have a fur hat I bought in Leningrad in '86, but I can't find it anywhere :-(

    Hi Dan, thanks very much for the suggestion, I really appreciate you taking the time. Yes, that one is available in the UK, but I fear it'll rip off as I walk with the camera on a sling strap ...
  • Created discussion thread UK source for replacement eyecup A7II?
    Hi All, The rubber of the eyecup on my A7II has ripped, and I'd like to source a replacement. I did order two from amazon UK, but they turned out to be hard plastic. I wear glasses, and a hard ...

    That's great, practical advice, many thanks! Chas
  • Replied in for MVDH
    That's great, thanks so much!
  • Replied in for CameraCarl
    Ah, that makes me feel much better :-) fyi: heated socks suck for feet, but make good dew heaters for lenses!
  • Replied in for CameraCarl
    Hmm, I'll take your advice to heart, thanks for the follow-up. The only reason I'm seriously thinking of these arctic boots is because of the many hours I spend standing in one spot, shooting ...
  • Replied in for Wayne
    Thanks for the reply Wayne, I really appreciate it. Since my OP, I've tested two Samyang 24mm f/1.4 lenses, both had QC problems (not flat field). This lens is going to be only for astro work, so ...
  • Replied in for tradesmith45
    That's all really good advice, many thanks! I've tried a couple copies of the Samyang 24mm f/1.4, but both weren't good (focal plane issues). I'm up for getting another one, I hope it's a good copy! ...
  • Replied in for afoton
    You're right, my bad for the assumption! And you've confirmed that I've made some bad assumptions about how cold it gets in Iceland (in my defence, it is _Ice_land!). After better research, I ...
  • Replied in for CameraCarl
    Oops, I mean Celsius, but at that temp, they're pretty close :-) I have a top pair of winter boots that I've had for 25 years (not hard wear, at least not for the 17 years Iv'e been here in the ...
