  • Yes - wearing a messenger is taking a toll on my back. The Speed Demon looks good - but it has the look of a camera bag, and I'm keen not to advertise that in an urban environment. As to the ...
  • KCAZ / Ken I had found the Tour on the Internet - but I've been unable to see either the Evoc or the Tour in the flesh.  That's why real experience is so valuable to me. A supplementary question, ...
  • Dave L Yes - accessibility is important.  That's why I've stuck with messenger bags over the years.  I have three Crumpler messenger bags (large, medium and small) and various foam inserts - I can ...
  • Chris 222 Yes, I've been through that thread and the longer one linked inside.  It's where I picked up the difference between Pressure Panel (PP) and Tensioned Mesh Panel (TMP) for back packs. I ...

  • You're absolutely right : Iceland and Tromso were fairly tolerable, but Ivalo was bitter cold : as low as -25deg C; made operating a camera very difficult. I looked again and most of the focal ...
  • highthiker The electrical storms here can be quite spectacular - I've never thought about photographing them. My first outing for aurora was to Ivalo in northern Finland; then to Iceland; and early ...
  • Thanks for the feedback, nighthiker. I'm the first to admit that, in my case, what's behind the camera is a limiting factor! I guess the "why" is that I am planning to have a much more serious go ...
  • Hi I'm new here.  I've been reading the forums for years, but never joined. I wanted to resurrect this thread because I am mulling over buying a Canon RP for beginner astrophotography. In recent ...
