Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I'm afraid the Telegraph wants me to register before I can read that article, something I am not prepared to do!

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Perhaps because the result of that 1975 referendum was 67 - 33, in other words a convincing victory for one side. Had the 2016 vote produced a similar result I am quite sure it would have been...

Re: ISO 3200 from Kodak

Ilford Delta 3200 never went away! A friend of mine tried it at ISO 25,600 - you could count the grains but it was quite a nice effect :).

Re: OMD-EM5 mk1 eyepiece.

It's odd because I've never had this problem with mine. Just once I noticed it had started to lift but was nowhere near falling out. I need to wear my glasses to see the EVF clearly, might that...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Just how much is the current fiasco costing us? If the minimum parameters were not met, that would mean that too few people wanted change. That would be the end of the story and the status quo would...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The present system mght be better if it required a minimum margin of (say) 60-40 and a minimum turnout of 80% of the electorate.

I now see DerekW has said pretty much the same thing :).

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I seem to recall Farage himself saying before the vote that a "52-48 result would be unfinished business". That's exactly what we have got though because it's in his favour he's shut up about it. I...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The problem arises when the democratic vote doesn't yield a convincing majority either way.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Umm, no it isn't. The Euro was worth around 77p before the vote and it's now around 88p. It has recovered some ground since the Euro's peak but it's certainly not back to where it was before the...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

A bit less of the "remoaners" please; kindly keep it civil. The economy hasn't tanked yet because we haven't left yet, a fact that leavers seem to forget all too often.

Re: St Pancras Hotel

A good result, it certainly isn't easy getting a good viewpoint there.

Fantastic building, thank goodness Sir John Betjeman (and others) were able to save it before it went the way of the Euston...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

That is the proportion of my self-assessment (income tax) spend. Anyone can find this out by going to the HMRC web site and clicking through to "Your Tax Summary".

I couldn't begin to work out how...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I just looked at my Tax Summary for 2016/7. It says my contribution to the EU budget was 0.7% of my total tax paid. Health spending was 20.3% so if my EU contribution was spent on health instead that...

Messrs Heath and Robinson I suspect :).

Impressive results though - would certainly show up a less than brilliant lens!

Re: Sky email issue

Mine is a BT Hub 6 but the wi-fi doesn't get to the kitchen any better than its v2 predecessor!

There's a wi-fi troubleshooting tool called inSSIDer (https://www.metageek.com/products/inssider/)...

Re: Lens Corrections?

DxO uses its own lens corrections base on measurements on each body/lens combination. It removes distortion, fringing and CA very effectively.

Re: Lens Corrections?

I can only say that judging by DxO's rendition of the unprocessed RAW image no geometric corrections are applied. Shots taken with the 12-50 at 12mm show very obvious barrel distortion!
