    How safe would you feel out alone with your camera equipment ?

    Theodore Roosevelt: Speak softly and carry a big tripod (with a big, cheap, heavy and lumpy steel ball head) ;)

    Anyone else fallen out of love with Flickr?

    I rather like Flickr and see it as a place for publishing photos that photographers would like shown for the merit of the imagery alone. I don’t use Instagram but largely I see that more as platform for publishing photos that have a back story such as “Hey, look at me and how great my wonderful...

    'Stealing a living', apparently.

    I’d have laughed at him. Does this knob somehow have some sort of divine right to be protected from the usual competition and market forces that affect all other businesses?

    Paralysis by analysis D3300 upgrade

    yes, should have added that information. Sort of stuff I like shooting is landscape, found still life, architectural details, urbex. More often than not I use a tripod. Don’t do too much wildlife but occasionally like some macro/close up on flowers. Never do sport or portraiture.

    Paralysis by analysis D3300 upgrade

    So I seem to be over thinking things regarding which way forward t upgrade from my Nikon D3300. When I first bought the D3300 I followed the conventional wisdom of “Save if for the glass...” and as a consequence I find myself quite heavily invested in Nikon DX lenses. These are as follows...

    Grey Vs Used. Am I missing something?

    Wow. Such a lot of replies in such a short time. I’m still baffled though: MPB : Used D7200 £ 549 E-infin : New D7500 £ 589 The prices are so close for two items that would seemingly be quite wide apart. It’s like a brand new, out-the-packet £20,000 motor sitting next to a three-year-old...

    Grey Vs Used. Am I missing something?

    I was going to post this on the thread currently running about the prices of new and second hand gear being somewhat out of sync. However, I didn't want to take that thread off topic and had a few other questions I was hoping could be answered. So I was this week just about to pull the trigger...

    Fiction, wanted, for chaps

    I went through a stage a few decades back of reading almost the whole of Wilbur Smiths back catalogue and I loved his stuff. His early books (which you mention) are superb but I think in later years he seems to have been doing the writer's equivalent of painting by numbers. I suspect that quite...

    Fiction, wanted, for chaps

    The best series of historic fiction books that I have ever read has to be the Flashman Papers by George Macdonald Fraser. They are such a hoot and outrageously un-PC to boot. They really do hit the spot from a historical perspective. In fact, I think I owe more of my knowledge on Britain's...
