    Lets see your panoramas

    I don't often shoot panos, but I'm looking to try them more often in the future. This one was taken on Skye, looking out across the sound of Raasay. Stitched in affinity photo, couple of errors in it but didn't bother me enough to redo it. Sound of Raasay by Iain Macleod, on Flickr

    Wild Camping Water Filter and Any Other Tips

    I carry 500ml of water with me to start and refill as i go throughout the day. At the last water source before camp, i fill up 3 litres to last me through till the next day. I rarely filter my water, but I do carry a MSR trailshot as a back up incase I have to take water from a less than ideal...

    Your most used Landscape lens

    I went for the EOS R which I have found to be a good step up from the 80D. It took a bit of getting used to the EVF, but I much prefer it now. The 10-24mm was replaced with an EF 16-35mm f4. Excellent lens, but I have found that I'm mostly using the RF 24-105mm that I got with the camera.

    Landscape workshops

    I would recommend James Grant after attending a week long workshop of his in Assynt last year. He's written an excellent peak district photography location guidebook, so you are in good hands if that is your preferred location.

    Anyone used WEX or MPB to trade in?

    I used MPB for selling this week for the first time. They quoted me on a "like new" condition lens. It was collected from my house on Tuesday afternoon, delivered to MPB by Wednesday morning, inspected and the full quote amount was paid by 5pm the same day. I was very pleasantly surprised by...

    Trusted grey import website?

    I have bought from Panamoz, HDEW and e-infinity. Service was fine and I got a good price with HDEW and e-infinity. I have had no issues with the items I bought from them, so I can't comment on how their customer service is. Panamoz were excellent when I had an issue earlier this year. I bought...

    Ballheads... Sirui K10X or other?

    I have a spare K20X and a 3LT QR11 L bracket that I would be willing to sell if you are interested?

    Chinese tripods?

    I was specifically looking at lightweight models with no centre column, so that ruled out the urban range. I couldn't find many reviews either, in the end it was this site that convinced me that the leofoto was worth a punt.

    Chinese tripods?

    Wex have a very limited range of Leofoto tripods and heads. I recently bought a Leofoto travel tripod and ballhead from eBay (LS-284C & LH-30). The build quality is excellent, I would say better than the Manfrotto (190CF) and Sirui (W2204) tripods that I have. The only problem is that it's too...

    Isle of Harris

    Thanks for all the comments everyone. Apologies I haven't managed to reply until now, been away with work for a few weeks. The first shot certainly seems to be a favourite. Luskentyre is such an amazing beach and the sand dunes provide endless options for compositions. I could have happily...

    Your most used Landscape lens

    My most used lens is currently a tamron 10-24mm HLD on my 80D. It's rarely off my camera. I'm in the process of changing to Canon FF, so I assume the EF 16-35mm f4 L will become my go to lens.

    Isle of Harris

    I visited Harris recently on a family holiday, my first visit here since I was about 3 years old. It wasn't a photography trip, more focussed on seeing the island and the areas where my family originated from. Luskentyre on the first night and the only decent light I saw while out with my...

    Panamoz / UPS!

    Received my first order from Panamoz this morning and I have to say I found them excellent to deal with. I contacted them early last week to get advice on the best time to order my new camera as I would only have a 3 day window this week when I would be home to receive it (in between a work...
