Re: Flatiron Building in NYC - evolution

Re: Interesting article from Thom Hogan about mirrorless in 2019

There’s the usual range of dpreview psychopathology on display in it, for sure :D

Plus the bloke claiming the M1ii VF was no improvement over that of the i has obviously never tried to use 10fps+...

Re: Interesting article from Thom Hogan about mirrorless in 2019

Well, we’ll see.

Hogan’s already been proved wrong about his prognostications on the Sony A6xxx series: the 6400 has just been announced and looks very interesting.

Re: Flatiron Building in NYC - evolution

I agree with John, and I suspect the last would indeed have been improved with longer trails (and maybe a little later in the day so there’d have been more contrast and a deeper sky: probably have...

Re: Upton Staithe, Norfolk, 4th December 2018

I love the aerial perspective in the first three - how the misty distance enhances depth in the images.

Re: From total over-exposure to 'Art'?

All you need to do with that now is to add a few texture layers in Ps, and you’ve got a winner.
It is quite amazing what Capture One can extract from a burned file.

Re: Camping

Cool. *chr

The most wildlife we come across when camping in the U.K. usually involves mosquitos or noisy kids in the next tent :rolleyes:

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Amid the usual torrent of dreams, flannel and spleen about the X on the dpreview forums, several rational sources have said the size increase is probably connected with heat dissipation to enable a...

Re: Occasional Lock Ups

I’ve had just one lockup between my two 1iis with a combined age of around 3.5 years and thousands of images (must check).
I certainly had some 1i lockups due to contaminated body-lens electrical...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The process isn’t entirely simple or very cheap, but a good start will be to find your Grandad’s birth certificate, or similar documentation.

Re: A stroll around South Melbourne

It's about a dozen years since I was in Melbourne, and I'm delighted to see it's still looking good! Your shots give a nice impression - although in total I've only spent about a week there, for me...

Re: Opinions sought

To add to the lists before:
- deeper shooting buffer and faster card writing, delaying lockups while shooting prolonged bursts for motorsports and field sports especially.

Re: White Rhino resting

They’re wonderful with intact horns, aren’t they. It’s understandable they’re removed in some environments, of course.

We had an amazing Black Rhino encounter on our first safari lodge experience...

Re: White Rhino resting

Great stuff. Fantastic creatures, critically endangered by man’s ignorance and gullibility.

Nice! I spent a lot of time in that hide after getting the 300 and I was practising following birds in flight - you can start on the geese, and after mastering that you can move on to the stunting...
