    Interesting ! It's also odd that the problem isn't consistent. The idea to post a screenshot ocurred to me overnight, but this morning when I went to take one, I was admitted to the site on my Android tablet several times without problem. But when I tried this afternoon, the message popped up...

    I must confess that I know nothing about how these things work, but as both my problems have been on Android devices, could that make any difference? Or even the Android versions, neither of which is current (or can be updated).

    I'm no expert, and my pic won't win any prizes, - but it does suggest that this is happening to me with Chrome.

    I'm sorry to report that I'm still experiencing Security Certificate issues on Android. This morning I logged in and posted something OK on my tablet, but when I came to add something 20 mins later, I had to take the "living dangerously" route to get back in again. Then when I tried (3 times) to...

    B + W 'E' Filters

    Very many thanks, Bob. From a quick scan, it looks like I should stick to the MRC ones, then, - but I'll study more closely later. Grateful thanks.

    B + W 'E' Filters

    Could some kind person tell me what the 'E' range of filters indicates, please. I have some F-Pro, and am aware of the XS range, but cannot find out anything about the 'E' ones. Thanks.

    Looking for a range of filters which aren't slim

    Slim filters seem to be all the rage these days. I can understand their use with wide angle lenses, but for my new 50mm-upwards lenses I would prefer to buy the conventional ones with enough thread to stop the lens cap from falling off. The more so in the case of one lens that has no bayonet, so...

    List of Canon authorized dealers, anyone ?

    As I mentioned in my opening post on this thread, I have been trying to re-find a list which I previously saw which I took to be of 'Official' Canon Dealers. I was disappointed with the "Where to buy" page on Canon's website which locates the dealer nearest to your postcode and shows it on a...

    Can someone advise me about viewing photos on a dvd player?

    Hello Louise, I've never bought a usb stick from 7dayshop, but all other purchases have gone smoothly. Sandisk is a respected brand for usb and camera memory. But seriously, as long as you get one of the known brands from a reputable source, you are very unlikely to get any problems. Your...

    Can someone advise me about viewing photos on a dvd player?

    Hello Louise, Firstly, just make sure that it's a DVP-SR760H player. Have a look at the screenshot attached which suggests that the socket is on the front. There are loads of USB drive brands, and in the end it's more or less a matter of personal choice over shape, colour, whether it has a cap...

    Can someone advise me about viewing photos on a dvd player?

    Louise. - If it's a model 760 player, the usb socket is at the right of the front panel. I really think that this is a better option for you than discs, where you are running into file compatibility issues. If you've got the usb stick that you were talking about, why not copy a few of your...

    Canon 40mm 2.8 stm

    Well, it confused me ........... I fear I might be too old and tired to spot the subtle difference.

    Canon 40mm 2.8 stm

    Thanks for that, Jason. Your link works now for me. I was believing what appears in the attached screenshot. Unfortunately this is not the first time I have experienced problems with the Canon website which I feel can reasonably be expected to be rather more "friendly". It sometimes takes me a...

    Canon 40mm 2.8 stm

    Hello Jason, yes, that's the one, - it says "We apologise but there is no software available for your product." Yet the issue is described in detail on http://www.eflens.com/ef-lenses/ef_40mm_f_2_8_stm.html and on a number of Canon's other websites.

    Canon 40mm 2.8 stm

    I'm in the market for a 'mint-ish' one of these (sorry if as a new member I'm not supposed to say that yet!) but have become a bit unnerved by what I've read about early versions this lens on the internet, needing a v2 firmware update. The Canon UK website says that it isn't available any more...
