  • You expect the sociopaths on this forum to confess: "yes, that's what I'm like"?
  • Wow, is she a beauty! Love that bipod, too, lateral thinking at its best.
  • Supercool! Thanks for sharing.
  • Replied in Hung out to dry
  • Replied in Too dry?
    Mind if I chime in with the opposite question? And some. I have 36g of silica gel in my camera bag. Is that too much? One of my lenses has become noisier. Could it be too dry? The bag isn't ...

  • Created discussion thread Phone for DJI Mavic Pro drone
    Hi. I'm planning to get into aerial photography with the above drone. I have an iPhone 4S which I still like but it's not compatible with the drone so I need an upgrade but don't want to sell a ...
  • I find your conclusion somewhat simplistic. Have you accounted for the higher perspiration rate caused by the heavier body and the faster evaporation through the larger mount?
  • There was (is?) this 1% movement. I think it originated as a reaction to governments falling short of the UN recommended 1% of GDP to aid. So people started to pay 1% of their gross income to ...
  • I see i got you off on a rant. That's fine but just so you don't get me wrong I find the hires mode a totally cool feature and hope to be able to buy a Pen-F for that very reason. FAS and 20MP are ...
  • The DPR hires tests are done with the LeicaPana 42.5mm f something lens which is even better than the Oly 45f1.8 (should be as it's much more expensive). I can't be bothered to ponder in what ways ...
  • Yes most of the original raison d'être of NATO would be gone so in a better world it wouldn't exist anymore or be transformed to something very different. As for whose "fault" the antagonism is, ...
  • There was hope in the air when Gorb became gensec. Looked like the ridiculous antagonism between Russia an the "west" would soon be forgotten. Could even imagine Russia becoming a member of the EU ...
  • I wish my first attempts at anything were on that level. Good job. Interested in your possible contact with the subjects & other background. The B&W work looks great too. Tweak much?
  • Russia is a dangerous place to be an independent journalist. But Novaya Gazeta is still going strong in spite of several murders and harassment by authorities.
  • Replied in Bad news? Photozone already tested it. Decent. I downloaded a couple of photos and found out that most of the CA was easy to correct in ACR. My estimate is not ...
  • I'm mostly with the liberal media on Russia's policies and Putin but that doesn't mean I wouldn't be delighted to spend a year there. There's so much more to a country than its politics such as ...

    Wow, you sure are taking ETTR to the extreme, is that yellow flowers with a bit of blue sky?
