Re: Factory reset - does it reset the file numbers ?

Surely if you keep a card with some photos on and put it back in after the camera reset, the numbers will just pick up where they left off?

Re: BTCC at Thruxton 2019

Look like a day well spent, well done Toby. Could be the start of an expensive obsession though!

Re: Sony RX100

Horses for courses - I strongly preferred the faster lens on the Mk 3 and was happy with the pay-off of a smaller zoom range. It's good that we have the choice.

I haven't even tried to keep track...

Re: Sony RX100

And .... it is small. Which makes it nice and portable but might be a problem for people with big hands. Even my stubby little fingers end up pressing the wrong button sometimes.

Re: Sony RX100

I've been running a Mark III for a few years. Within its limitations it can produce quite good images and I'm quite pleased with it, but wouldn't use it for anything mission-critical.

Plus points:...

Would the truck that pulled them there on the trailer be the eyefull tower?

Funny you should say that, I was thinking he looked a bit like me but I have 30 years' worth less of hair than that :)

Re: Portrait of Humanity

That is a very interesting and important comment David. When we talk about photography we usually end up talking about the end result, but I think the act of doing it delivers a lot more. For example...

Impressive sequence. I like the way that we can almost read the facial expressions in number 2!

Re: Will Brits Take Action To Fight Climate Change

Fair point, but ......

The planet won't die, except in the very very very long term (unless we do something truly apocalyptically stupid and blow it to pieces). Humans, on the other hand, will...

Re: The beauty of grain

As Dorothy Parker (I think) said, for those people who like that sort of thing, it is the sort of thing that they like. So if you like it, all well and good.

I started reading about how he did it...

Re: Step down ring...60mm to 55mm required.

It looks as though 60mm is a rather odd size. I looked at SRB, who normally have everything, and they have 58s and 62s but no 60s.

Re: Vantage Points

Fascinating, the shots really give a sense of atmosphere and scale. It looks hard to scratch a living out of that harsh landscape.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Old Town Harbour, Raw vs JPEG

Having read the comments and looked again, several times:

The second shot, from the raw file, appears to show more detail in both shadows and highlights. This shows up in the highlights on the...

Re: Old Town Harbour, Raw vs JPEG

I prefer the slightly warmer colour rendition in the second, and you seem to have brought out the shadows a bit better. But I'm sure you could have done both of those with the other file if you had...

Re: Concrete Jungle

I think the third is by some way the strongest of the three. The first two give a good impression of the places but, for me at least, the third has something extra going on. Maybe it is because there...
