Re: Canikon FF mirrorless

Canikon seems a reasonable phrase. Both manufacturers produce very similar cameras that represent the state of the art of digital SLR cameras. Together they also own the bulk of the market.

Re: Gliding

Yes, they're pretty common. Fold-away engines have been around for a while. There are two types - self-launching and sustainers (aka "turbos"). The difference is in their size & power. The...

Re: Gliding

Well, I hope you're all happy with yourselves...

Piqued by this thread of Walti's, this last weekend I visited two clubs and took my first flight in a glider in 7 years. I'm seriously thinking...

Re: The Windows10 Disaster

My objection to Win 10 is on four main points really:

- It's so UGLY. Win 7 had a very consistent and cohesive UI design and I liked it. Win 10 is a dog's breakfast of mixed UIs (Metro + Win...

Re: The Windows10 Disaster

Yes, I agree. I hate Win 10 with a vengeance. Still, at least it's better than Windows 8!

Re: What is the next step? UWA lenses

Panasonic 8-18. The best of the UWA zooms imho.

Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

It is an excellent image Ian. I sincerely doubt its impact could be improved by it being shot on film, or a Leica Monochrome. Excellent images transcend the capturing device.

Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

I don't think it's true to say that film DR exceeds digital. This rather long and technical article by Roger Clark clearly shows that digital DR is significantly better than both slide and negative...

Re: Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 fisheye

Horrible product, horrible company. UK government need to regulate them (and other social media platforms) to prevent political propaganda overwhelming our democracy.

Here in Oslo, despite a clear sky at sunset, some clouds arrived just in time to obscure the eclipse. So - thanks for posting these shots. Very nicely executed!

Re: Gliding

It sounds like para gliding is where gliding was in the early 1950s. Then, downwind one way flights into the West country were common and a 300km closed circuit task was the stuff of dreams. Now, a...
