    3 or 4 stop ND filter? For F1.2 & F2.0 lens

    Thanks for the input. I will definitely be buying Hoya, although the variable is substantially more expensive than a 3-4 stop, so I’ll probably go that route. Still undecided what strength density though...

    3 or 4 stop ND filter? For F1.2 & F2.0 lens

    hello there I’m looking to buy my first ND filter for shooting wide open in daylight, I’m not interested in long exposures, just handheld photography. A 58mm filter will fit both my 50mm 1.2 and 35mm f2 on my D750 (max 1/4000 shutter), I’m just having a hard time deciding which would be most...

    The Official Fuji X10/X20/X30/XF1/XQ1 Thread

    Thanks. Yesterday I bought myself a mint used X20 for a real bargain, it’s in the post on its way to me. Can’t wait to get my hands on the little fella

    The Official Fuji X10/X20/X30/XF1/XQ1 Thread

    Thinking about picking up an X20 or X30 (XQ2?). There doesn’t seem much price differential in the used market between the two, is there any benefit at all to the X20 over the X30? Considering the Q as well but f4.9 at the Tele end is putting me off a bit. Tbf I may even opt for an X10 if the...

    Thieves operating from mopeds in London, beware............

    Moped crime is getting out of hand in London. Thanks to the government the British citizen is rendered defenceless against knife wielding criminals. There’s a lot of shocking footage on YouTube of these thugs; makes me so angry .

    Nikon d850 "in development"

    I really hope it indeed has a hybrid optical / electrical viewfinder. Best of both worlds....

    Nikon D750

    I bought mine from Panamoz. You don't need to send it back to them, just contact Nikon UK and they will sort it.

    Nikon CEO confirms they are working on a pro mirrorless system.

    I've thought about this set up a lot. I'm sure it's great, but the last Sony I owned was so frustrating (NEX7). The D750 I have with 35mm f2 & 50mm 1.4 is still a pretty compact kit. If Fuji made a FF I'd probably buckle and buy it.

    Nikon D750

    I believe the advisory is for exactly the same issue, they are just increasing the periods from manufacturing date. Tbf, I've had my D750 done. Nikon have been brilliant, if it were Fuji people would be waxing lyrical at the great customer service.

    Nikon CEO confirms they are working on a pro mirrorless system.

    Well that would be true if MF had a vast array of very fast glass... MF for me is too limiting, it has a specific purpose (posed / studio shooting etc) and the price / value ratio isn't for me. If I had £10k to spend on one body and lens, I would probably end up with a Leica M10 & summilux.

    Nikon CEO confirms they are working on a pro mirrorless system.

    I think FF will always be the ideal choice of photographers. Even if smaller sensors get much better DR and resolution, they still can't get the d.o.f falloff that FF has. I know some moan about the overuse of shallow d.o.f, but there are many a time that it adds a certain look to a photo and...

    Huge year for Nikon with their anniversary etc. We'll probably see a mirrorless ff body, will defiantly keep f mount. I wouldn't want to lose the optical finder, I'm hoping for a wonderful ttl hybrid viewfinder, that will crush all the opposition. Expect announcements any time soon!

    UV filters (do you still use them?)

    I use Hoya HD protectors (not technically UV filters) and they are very tough glass. I don't think anyone is buying a filter to protect their camera from a fall. It's for those of us that shoot in conditions where you may get the odd piece of debris flying around.

    UV filters (do you still use them?)

    I always use them on my most used expensive lenses, and I always buy a good quality Hoya HD. The key is using a high quality filter that won't affect iq. I would much rather replace a filter than a front eliment

    Big Bang or Gradual Move to Fujifilm

    Like many I've been around the block and tried all the manufacturers (Canon / Nikon / Fuji / Sony ). The grass is never greener, and the Fuji wont do anything your canon can't do. But gas is a real and valid reason to change :D The best advice is to get your hands on one for a day or two and...
