Re: Photographic opportunities in Ayrshire

I can highly recommend a day trip to the Isle of Arran. The ferry leaves from Ardrossan and takes just under an hour. Arran has spectacular mountains and coastline. Brodick Castle, owned by the...

If you are serious about printing photos the key is to have your monitor profiled, I use a Huey Pro, and get custom profiles for your printer, ink and paper combination. You need custom profiles for...

Re: So what do you think about the E-P1?

I don't think this camera is aimed at the SLR user, as stated by many of you lack of viewfinder and only 2 lenses currently available will put off many SLR users. To my mind it will sell to the...

Re: Jobo GPS

I got my hands on one of these Jobo GPS things for a few days. It's a great little device. You just charge it up from USB pop it on the camera's hot shoe and forget about it. When you take a picture...

Re: Loch Linnhe

I have to agree with Stephen the clouds in the second shot are a bit blue. If you made them a more neutral grey it would also enhance the reddish pink in the water. Apart from that a couple of nice...

Re: 15th Challenge - The Great Outdoors...

The air has been too hazy to see Arran from the mainland but from Ben Nuis, where the shot was taken, to Goatfell, the distant hill in the picture, is only 1 mile so it was quite visible during the...

I was on Arran yesterday, Tuesday 18/03/09, and the "horrid haze" wasn't much of a problem.

Re: What would you like to see from Olympus next?

You are right which might explain why Jessops shares are sitting at 1.9p when just over 2 years ago they were at 1.60.

Re: What would you like to see from Olympus next?

It sounds like you want an E3.

As for prices, I work in photographic retail and cost prices are going up across the board. Most companies are putting up their prices between 15 and 25%. If you are...

Re: What would you like to see from Olympus next?

Panasonic were showing what they hoped to bring out in the next year or so for micro4/3 so I doubt if we will hear anything about the 25mm until they are about to release it.

On the micro4/3 front...

Re: What would you like to see from Olympus next?

I would like to see more prime lenses particularly a 400 or 500mm f5.6ish to keep the price and weight down, a 7mm non fisheye and a 35 or 40mm f1.4.
On the camera front I want a splash proof micro...

I notice that the original rules stated that the pictures must be taken within the period of the competition, between the 10/11/08 and the closing date but the new rules don't. Is this...

Re: Which One?

I prefer No 1 but I think both of them look a little flat and could be improved by darkening the mid tones and upping the saturation a touch.

Re: Brocken Spectre

Thanks for all your kind comments. I have seen a broken spectre once before, many years ago, but it wasn't anything like as clear as this and was gone in a few seconds.

Brocken Spectre

I was up the hills a few days ago and was thrilled to see this rare meteorological phenomenon. It is my shadow in the center of the brocken specter.

Re: Advice re compact

The factor that will limit your choice is that you want such a wide lens. The one that springs to mind is the Panasonic Lumix FX500, 10.1 million pixels, a 5x optical zoom 25-125mm equiv. and manual...

Re: Malt Whisky - personal preferences?
