Re: Photography in Public Places

Re: More than one camera

I have quite a few cameras, which one is best for a job varies considerably. I don't normally carry a second camera now, but did routinely for several years.

I know Brands fairly well but have never seen the inner paddock so empty, it's nearly always filled with teams lorries when I've been there. Gives it a very...

Re: Infra Red Conversion

I brought a pre-converted full spectrum GF2 6 years ago. Been a lot of fun allowing me to try a wide range of IR options.

Re: Free software?

FastStone does handle RAW but maybe not well.
On my system it displays the embedded preview JPEG, but can be made to reload at full resolution from the RAW, with a single key press. (I think the...

Re: Oulton Park BTCC 2019

Most of the normal spectator spots on the outside of the circuit are too far from where I have to work. I have managed the outside of the start finish straight when I knew in...

Re: OMD + 12-100 an overpriced bridge camera?

The huge zoom range of the 12-100 means it can be used in a similar way to bridge cameras. It will give better results than most (if not all) of them used in this way.


To me though the big...

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

60mm is indeed an odd size, used as intermediates on some of my screw together extension tubes. I had to make do with a 58mm one, and combine it with 2 other stepping rings & a coupling ring. I...
