    Critique Grey Heron at Newgale Beach (more added 22/3)

    Nice shots, particularly like the second. Birds seem to be able to spot me from 3-4 miles away, however still and camouflaged I am.

    Sturminster Mill Mono

    The distortions kill it for me, don't know if it would have been possible to get further back and use a longer lens maybe? Otherwise it looks a nice image and suits Mono.

    Beginner Lumix G1 Lenses... HELP

    Hi, first of all Lumix lenses are only 'different to other in terms of mm ' in relation to other camera formats, therefore a 42.5mm lens on your camera will have exactly the same view as if you set 42,5mm on your current lens (14-45). To have a more blurred background you need a lens with a...

    MPB - Very Poor

    Yes I did, I didn't start a thread about it, but commented on someone else's. I've done exactly the same this time.

    MPB - Very Poor

    I've had good service up until my last transaction a few weeks ago, put a body in PX for a camera and lens, the camera turned up but not the lens!! they had about 10 in stock of that lens too.

    youtube videos on photography

    Me too, aother favourite was Craig Prentis but he hasn't put a video out for a while now. In fact a lot of photo vloggers seem to be reducing their output.

    A good time to buy a DSLR ?

    It's a great camera but I don't think Nikon would've spent millions on R&D for their FF range over the last 10 years if your statement was true.

    Using my old Nikon F60 film camera again

    Is there a DX coding on the film case? if there isn't this might make a difference, not sure though.

    A few photos taken from the side of a boat in the Arctic Circle with a Fuji X-T3

    Love the sky in the last one, actually some of the clouds resemble whales (or is that just me).

    Wellies and alternatives???

    I have had my Aigle's 8 years now, great wellie's, expensive, but I work for a farm supply company and got them discounted. Expect to get another 8 years out of them too.

    not sharp enough
