  • ... same here Dogs used to be licensed, now chipped.  In NL we have to carry ID and I doubt if we have less freedom than in the UK, I would guess more; I'm happy to prove who I am, -  it's ...
  • More surprising is that McD*nald's sesame buns are organically grown  :-O
  • Very well seen, very well done. I've made similar single frame shots with the DP2M, does stitching not raise special perspective problems so close? ( compared to say a mountain range) Thanks, Cheers,
  • Great. Love the canine characters but I'm also filled with nostalgia by these; - apart from the doggy in the second one I noticed the skirt length and my Vitesse behind the lampost.  Well, not ...

    Just found this and couldn't resist an over-the-limit post. Dunno, it just pleases me ........ Cheers,
  • Raynox is frequently recommended; I have an ancient set of Nikon close-up lenses 52mm which seem to work well on the DP3M, is Raynox superior in any way - light loss/ falloff? George
  • Anything that allows precise measurement - a banknote is good ........... hhmmm - a while since I've had one of those  :-(  . Or download and print a  test card, Maybe the Macro forum would be ...
  • sdQ DP1 The light was changing quickly and all were taken within a few minutes of each other even though the DP1 clock is still on summer time ! DP1 sdQ NOT intended as fodder for a comparison ...
  • The distance scale on the 30mm f1.4 only shows at what distance the lens is focused i e the focal plane.  It has nothing to do with zone focussing.  Aperture size doesn't move the focal plane, it ...
  • Hi Ted, I had problems posting last night; cancelled the above, re-did it and then found the original had been posted too late to edit. I wanted to say "the smallest aperture consistent with a ...
  • I think you're confusing the simple distance indicator on the 30mm f1.4 with the DOF scale on older MF lenses; - select an aperture and one could read off DOF sometimes roughly but on better ...
  • Maybe I didn't make it clear in my first post but  I consider this image to be very successful on many levels, not least as an excellent composition balancing a few simple shapes and colours.  In ...
  • Not snow, just frost - exactly a year ago ... the girl-next-door  is no more ...  no! no! -- moved to another part of town:-( Playtime Not fond of PS trickery but this is close to my idea when I ...
  • I understand the preference for all-manual but insistence is maybe OTT?  Most of my outdoor stuff is  wobbly-hand-held (can't manage a tripod perched on a mobility scooter)  nor can I easily ...
  • DP1M user manual, - P49 -- in case you have no manual (?)                http://www2nd.sigma-photo.co.jp/downloads/manual/DP1Merrill_Manual_en.pdf Always a good idea to read the manual .........;-)

    Only some hundreds ;-) - including magazine stories; editorial wasn't as lucrative as advertising where I did about 90% of my commercial work. Remember this was spread over best part of 40yrs, ...
  • Replied in Pix by Don
    Yes! A much underused subject. I like the 3rd especially, - a hesitant suitor approaching his beloved  68 ....... I made this little watercolour of a Victorian some years ago, he was standing guard ...
  • Not much new from Nikon DF or D750 ......... If I were younger, stronger and much richer I would still be using the best Nikon gear as I've done since the early sixties; being older, poorer and ...
  • Yes; and I was happy that the Teslanol left no marking/staining on the cameras plastic/metal. Thanks again for the recommendation George
  • Wonderful colour; is that a natural phenomenon or result of tapping trendy birch sap? (I'm fairly sure they're birches not aspen)  - whatever, a striking effect .......
