Re: British Waterways

Not sad at all. Canal And Rivers Trust are doing a much better job. They actually want people to use the canals and tow-paths unlike the bone idle civil servants of BW who resented anything which...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

It's a female Tufted Duck. The tuft on the female is much smaller than on the male and isn't always obvious.

Re: Problem with MC-20 2x Teleconverter

The firmware update for the 300/f4 was for the MC-20. I assume there'll be one for the 40-150 too. It's definitely something you need to check.

Re: What broadband speed do you need?

I "only" get about 6MB download speed and that's way more than I actually need for downloading or watching videos. Upload is speed is, of course, a lot less than that but I don't do a lot of...

Re: Olympus Air A01

I'd imagine the RAWs would be like the PEN series.

Re: Birds In Flight Photography

BIF photography is about 80% technique. No whizz-bang toy can make up for that. I've taken BIF photos with my old E-510 and non-SWD 50-200. I've taken BIF photos with my EM1 Mk I. And, obviously,...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

There used to be one around here (possibly a JCB escapee). Haven't seen it for years though.

Re: Olympus Air A01

I vaguely remember reading about the Air A01. 16MP is plenty to print up to A3 size.

Re: Climate Change

No it isn't. Arab crude is a very light oil suitable mostly for making petrol. OTOH North Sea oil has a very low petrol content. In practice refineries (in this country anyway) are geared to...

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

Were I to do Africa (which I never will because I'm not rich), I'd go to Djuma in the Sabi Sands with the hope of seeing either Tingana, Thandi or Tlamba (they're all Leopards BTW). Then, yes, I'd...

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

The only time I reach for a zoom over a prime to photograph mammals is if I'm going spend the day at a zoo. For wild mammals you very rarely have the problem of them being too close. I use the...

Re: 4/3 50-200 f2.8

What will limit the frame rate you're able to achieve is the performance of the lens iris. For fastest results shoot with the lens wide open.

Re: E620

In that case you clearly don't have an E620 because the E620 has a dedicated Menu button.

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

I don't think I'll be buying it either. But compared to what the pros are used to paying for the big Canon and Nikon lenses 6,000 will seem like a bargain to them. I'm sure that the driver for the...

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

I'm expecting somewhere in the 6,000 region. Which will create a cry of horror amongst the pixel peepers and a stampede amongst the pro wildlife photographers to get their hands on one.

He's just as much a politician as any of the rest of them.

Re: Boris Gate

BoJo was an MP before he became Mayor of London. Anyone who holds a political office is by definition a politician. Whether they're any good at it is another matter entirely ;)

Re: Boris Gate

I was thinking more of Corbyn's voting record prior to him becoming Labour leader.


Bizarrely back in the 60s Labour were anti Common Market (as it was then) and the Conservatives were pro. I'm...

Re: Boris Gate

Agreed but I do wonder what that makes Corbyn, who voted against his party's line many, many hundred of times? Surely if we're going to judge MPs by their allegiance to their leaders then we need to...

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

ISTR there being a vague bit in Oly's last roadmap which could well be something like a non-pro 100-400. Personally (and speaking as someone who owns both the 300/f4 and the ZD300/2.8) I'd like to...

There's no difference from a host device point-of-view between a USB-mounted CF card and a USB-mounted SD card.

Re: E620

A card reader might do it. You'd need a USB to micro-USB cable as well.

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

They're probably talking about the already-announced 150-400 f4.5 which goes to 500mm with its built-in 1.25 TC.
