  • When examining the 2 pictures of birds on a post, the post profiles indicate that the posts are not equidistant from the lens. To my eye the right-hand post is more blurred than the middle post, ...
  • I’d noticed this foible of the Mk3 as well. Shutter speeds in Aperture priority in low light can be quite low. They may be OK for stationary subjects but not for movement. So you have to select a ...
  • The respected UK magazine Amateur Photographer recently carried out an evaluation of several noise reduction programs using 2 images, one shot at ISO 1600 and the other at ISO 25,600. The results ...
  • To be even more specific, click on ‘Display’ on the bottom edge of the rear wheel. Various display modes appear; just click several times until the level indicator appears. When levelling the ...
  • Glad that some people found the idea of protective sleeves of interest. Basically I think that 32mm OD domestic waste piping (UK) is going to be too small for the tripod fittings. So you would ...
  • May be a mad idea, but have you thought about isolating the legs from the water? Provided the tripod has screw locks, you could use plastic plumbing pipes. A pack of 3, sealed at one end, would be ...
  • There are numerous electronic releases around and many cost much less than $50. For advice see for example https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4027895 Michael
  • I have the https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00KIGOTBW/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item from Amazon. Comes with 1 battery and charges using a mains connection or a car 12V system. Adapters for both are ...
  • Thanks for your help everyone. Digidog kindly undertook to examine 2 versions of one my images. He confirmed that an untagged one that had been re-imported into LR6 and then exported as a sRGB now ...
  • Thanks Digidog. First of all I do admit to being an ignoramus as far as printings (and colour) are concerned. I used the term RGB loosely instead of Adobe RGB owing to that ignorance. It is the ...
  • Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Firstly I do not think that adopting RGB will help. Half the competitions I enter are for projected images and they are required to be in sRGB. With prints I ...
  • Created discussion thread Missing Colour Profile
    I’m a pretty experienced photographer but I have no experience of printing; all my prints are done by professional printers. Unfortunately I have just had a problem with 2 prints and need help to ...
  • The Sirui C10 is highly regarded for its outstanding capabilities relative to its comparatively modest size. Michael
  • Very good - except that's the Radcliffe Camera, not the Bodleian.
  • I thought I’d given you enough information earlier to solve this ‘problem’ using parts sourced from the UK, where you are based. So the damage is to the head of the screw, not the shank. Just try ...
  • This is all a bit of a mystery in which there may have been some misunderstanding. You now seem to say that the copper-coloured bush in your pictures is actually a ¼” bush that screws into the ...
  • It's unlikely that a direct transfer is possible since Lightroom is set up to access files stored on the computer HD. However an obvious method is to use Sony PlayMemories Home to transfer images ...
  • Coincidentally this subject was touched on when Amateur Photographer (highly respected and the world’s oldest photographic magazine, from where some of DPRev’s staff came) published their test of ...
  • Many thanks indeed PC Wheeler for your perfect, illustrated answer. That solves the problem and I'll go ahead and buy a grip. Regards Michael
  • Created question thread Sony RX100 MkIII - Grip Depth?
    A simple request. I have bought a case for my R100X III. Whilst the camera fits snugly it could well have enough room to accommodate the camera + Sony AG-R2 grip. I would be grateful if an owner ...
