Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

When our son got married a year ago the wedding photographer used a Fuji X-T2 for daylight shots, but a Nikon something or other because of its superiority when using flash.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I'll say squarely up-front that I'm not much into photography these days, (or contribute to this forum much either), and only occasionally use my MFT camera (not Olympus any more), so I'm not in the...

Re: Take Heed!

Interesting! A bit of memory lane for me, as I went to school in Harrow (not the Harrow!), and occasionally we'd walk up to the top of Harrow-on-the-Hill during our lunchtime. Too long ago now to...

Re: Loo paper

Well, that's what loo paper is for!

Actually, I've noticed some supermarkets sell loo rolls on a rather smaller diameter core. Makes sense, as they can pack more goods into the box/lorry etc.and...

Re: Salisbury nerve agent - just what the hell is that stuff?

You are quite right Jim, that once in the body it is a lot more difficult to detect, but there are ways when the amounts are significant, as in Litvinenko's case. However, the point I was making is...

Re: Salisbury nerve agent - just what the hell is that stuff?

So how else would you explain it to the general public? The risk is low, clearly, as no-one else has been affected, and the recommendation to wash clothes is a precautionary measure.

I think it is...

Re: Salisbury nerve agent - just what the hell is that stuff?

Re: Salisbury nerve agent - just what the hell is that stuff?

I'm not really sure why you are worried that the type of nerve agent hasn't been disclosed. After all, I'm not sure what you would do with the information if you had it. I can quite understand why...

Re: Motorway Lane Discipline

Well, you're perfectly right of course, and it makes me very cautious if I do it (not that I make a habit of it). I'd prefer to overtake in the proper way, but often find that the lane to the right...

Re: Any Affinity Photo Users?

I downloaded Affinity some while ago when it was at the lower price, and installed it on a Win8.1 laptop. I saw it as a PS substitute, which is what it was being hailed as. I do have problems with it...

Re: Fuji xt2 v Olympus omd 1 mark ii

I don't do very much conventional photography these days, but when I do I use my Fuji XT1 and 100S, though still occasionally my old GH2. So I'm not very much up to speed, though I have to endorse...
