Focus Shift Shooting: This underscores the technology problem we've placed on ourselves.

Does this contraption work? Sure. Yep.
But I know I'd be much, much happier taking photos with a single-flash that had some sort of light prism separator.

Like this?

Beautiful, except for the distracting white border. IMHO.

On photo Gate to the Fairytale in the Gates challenge (3 comments in total)

Although the gate looks somewhat incongruous, the rocks look wonderful and probably present some marvellous photo opportunities.

Surprisingly enjoyable; I think that lad (and the composer) are going places.

Heartbreaking - their government should arrest the perpetrators of this evil trade.

The Pentax photos win; but, of course, it's not the camera but the person behind it that really matters.

mosc: I'd rather buy a monitor. Who prints anymore?

The main reason that I take photographs is to make prints. I'm still using my 15 year old Epson R2400, which continues to chug along.

Peter Del: Zebebito "A7Riii is no heavier than an Oly"
Not quite. The Olympus weighs 944 gr while the Sony weighs 1222gr. The Olympus costs £1750 while the Sony costs £4900.

R.Evans. You are completely wrong, I was giving figures for cameras with a lens, like in the ad.

A subscription is another thing my executrix will have to unravel, so I'll stick to software in a box.
