Re: Vintage Kit

Apologies for resurrecting this thread. My Christmas radio present bought from John Lewis is officially 'dead'. Total cr*p.

Re: Sigma 56mm f/1.4

I don't think that I will sell my 75mm/1.8 but am now considering selling my Pany 25mm/1.4 which also doesn't get used much. That would fund a chunk of the Sigma. Rob, the answer question is that I...

Re: Sigma 56mm f/1.4

Tempting. My 75mm doesn’t get used much as most of the time I don’t have the luxury of the necessary distance from the subject for street portraiture.

Re: Playing around - first trip out with my OMD EM-5

After their initial review of the EM-5, MK 1, DPReview wrote a very helpful article about setting up up the camera. Probably worth a search but I think I have a Word version on my old laptop. Will...

Re: Camera club speakers

We have had some ‘big’ names. As you would expect, they range from poor to very good. Before booking I would check individual performance with other clubs if possible. Reaction within the club has...

Vintage Kit

We seem to go through a lot of radios that only last a few years. Roberts are the main culprits, we've had four I think that have had a very limited life. My wife bought me a Ruark a few years ago,...

Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

Ron, the other bonus with Affinity is that their own videos are bite-sized. Often only 4-5 minutes long and delivered in a calm manner by a Brit. Completely unlike the ear-wrenching video’s from...

Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

For what it’s worth. I browsed a copy of Amateur Photographer yesterday and Affinity Photo is their Product of the Year. I use Affinity after years with Photoshop, it’s more than good enough for...

Re: Nik Collection

Peter, I am no expert but I had issues when I had the trial. My problems were specifically related to Affinity Photo in that certain linkages had to be made in order for Affinity to recognise Nik. ...

I'm about to make a pitch to hold an exhibition to be located in an area where the potential exhibits have been captured. To this end, I'll probably create a small web site as part of the pitch and...

Re: Street Photography are there any exceptions

Re: Street Photography, I found this on a Flickr Group posted by Alveraz Ricardez. It sums up my own feeling about restrictive labels.

Re: Serif Black Friday

In my opinion - no. It has lots of projects that in my opinion have little relationship to what most photographers need or want. A cheese sandwich being stretched apart, not on my wish list. ...
