Re: Yet Another Scam

I've had that one with the added variation of the claim that they activated my video camera on my monitor. A neat trick as my monitor doesn't have one!

I'm intrigued where these people get the...

I have subscribed to the colourless, odourless substance you refer to for many years and find it most efficacious.

My preference is to self administer in a modified form with two varieties taking...

It's actually catastrophic as my supply of anti-grump pills has run out due to my overdose yesterday.

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

Agree with you ED. Would have been good to meet you Tram.

Also agree with you regarding food. I have long since brought a packed lunch to such places even if it is a bit of a faff.

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

A delight to meet up with a good few forum members. I was annoyed with myself for arranging something else at 13:00 which meant I had to disappear rather abruptly.

Very impressed with you Ed....

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

Hi Ian

I shall be there tomorrow. First port of call will be the queue to drop my camera and a couple of lenses in for cleaning. Hopefully I can bump into someone for a natter in the queue.

Re: Club Photographic Competitions

I have just stumbled across this discussion during one of my increasingly rare visits to the forum and find it fascinating and, in common with others it seems, one I have distinct views on.

Re: Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

Anybody got hold of a map of exhibitors. So far I haven't found one on the main site. Probably means I haven't looked in the correct place of course.

I won't bother with the show app this year as...

Re: The Photography Show - free entry for some

Curses. I clearly should be more diligent as I'm Publicity and Exhibition Sec. for my club. Next year then as I've long since bought tickets for this year.

Re: New silver E-M1 Mark II camera

I too have a special edition beard these days.

It is complimented by a special, highly reflective surface on my top plate. That needs regular attention though to keep the shine at optimum levels....

Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

A well considered and reasoned post Paul as always.

It's a debate that crops up at my club on occasions where a number of the more experienced members have gone over to m43, mostly EM1.2, and are...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

There are some very good points being made.

In common with Paul I do think the initial marketing has missed the mark by a wide margin. Couple that with the fact that Olympus is not fashionable in...

Question Photography Show 2019 - Can we manage to meet up this year

Last year we arranged a meet up at 12:00 on the Olympus stand on the Monday. For no apparent reason most of us managed to miss each other and only a few managed to meet and have a chat. Sad, as it...

Re: Can anyone shed any light on this

Fine for me.

W10. Chrome.

Does seem to be very random looking at the list of successes and failures. This sort of thing is so annoying.

Sorry. Not much help.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Question is, what price do I put on them.

How much is a 20+ year old worth ??

As for my wife; probably wise I do not speculate *pnc

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Now that I've watched a few reviews and got a better feel for what this camera is about I am not so against it as I was.

The big point made on several of the reviews is that it is aimed at pro...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I have to say that, notwithstanding the price, with the snippets we have seen so far it is bringing back fond memories of the E3 which always felt very good in my hand.

Still think Olympus should...
