Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I have seen lots of Long Tailed Tits recently but they have all been feeding high up in trees, surrounded by tangled twigs, like this one. It would be nice to see one at eye level for a change and my...

Re: No panning Mode

That is a good question Rob. According to the manual for the 300mm f4, when image stabilization is switched On 'the IS operates according to the IS setting in the camera'. The camera IBIS can be set...

Re: Olympus 1.4 mc 14

Apparently warranty repairs for HDEW Cameras are carried out by A.J. Johnstone & Co Ltd of Glasgow. It might be worth contacting them to see if they can supply the screws or repair the converter more...

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

The unexpectedly warm and sunny weather at the end of last week produced my first Brimstone of the year at Strumpshaw Fen. It wasn't until I was viewing the shots on my computer that I noticed the...

Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

I have been using the beta version for a few weeks now and it seems to work well. I even received an update for it the other day. Affinity Photo is very good and is excellent value for money but I...

Re: Loose the 'sticky-out-strap-ends'

I have been rather fussy about attaching straps ever since my brand new binoculars hit the floor with a thud when the soft, thin strap slipped through the buckle. I had to send them back to Germany...

Re: Loose the 'sticky-out-strap-ends'

I use that method already. The only tricky bit is if you want to adjust the strap to a particular length. It takes ages to slacken the strap in the buckle, move it through the camera lug as required,...

Re: Does your camera have a certain perfume?

My film cameras smell as if they are covered with mould, as indeed they are. :)

Beautiful shots Tord. A welcome splash of colour to brighten up the winter gloom.

Re: Birds of Santon Downham

Great shots of some splendid birds Andy. I believe Santon Downham is the place for Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers in this part of the country, although I have never been there.

Re: Official: I am an Otter Spotter

Well done Mark. More than acceptable results under very tricky conditions by the look of it. Nice.

Re: Bathing Turnstone

Thanks Peter. This was my first time out with thecamera this year. I am not a fan of cold weather these days but it was bright and sunny on Thursday which makes the bitter cold much more bearable. :)...

Re: Bathing Turnstone

That's a pity Tord. They are very common where I live and there was around thirty of them when I took these shots. They are extremely confiding and were too close to photograph for much of the time....

Re: Sunny Sandpipers

Thanks Andy. Yes it was, although they were slightly north of the point itself, beside the Birds Eye factory. It is funny how they turn up each winter, without fail.

This Turnstone was bathing in a rock pool at Lowestoft last week. There was so much action going on that I had to use C-AF and it seemed to work quite well.

E-1 II, 300mm f4 and MC-14.

Re: Sunny Sandpipers

Many thanks for the kind comments and 'likes'. Number one is my favourite too but unfortunately I only got one shot against that backdrop. They were rather active and it was hard to keep track of...

Sunny Sandpipers

It was a bright and sunny day yesterday, so I decided to brave the cold and take my camera out for the first time this year. It was good to find that some Purple Sandpipers had returned to the same...

Re: And you thought the E-M1x was expensive?

I see the Panasonic S1 body is 2199 and the S1R is 3399 from WEX. That puts the E-M1X right between those two. I have no idea how you would work out which is the best value for money out of the...
