    Mystery logo on a graduated filter

    I'm sure I have seen it somewhere, but can't put a name to it. Any suggestions?

    100mm Filter set for Landscapes

    I would like to put together a set of filters for landscape and seascape work. I reckon a polarizer, a 6-10 stop ND, and a 2-stop grad would make a capable starter set - and perhaps as much as I need. Are resin filters preferred because they are shatter resistant, or do glass win on image...

    To much like hard work to buy from

    They claim to be functioning as usual. One of their people offered to follow up my complaint. And didn't. Like I say.

    A foolish comment. They made the claim to be functioning as normal. And one of their people offered to follow up my complaint. And did not.

    Rather a silly comment. They claim to be operating as normal.

    That seems a pretty fair assessment. They don't want to offer customer service, and would much rather a machine dealt with their customers.

    Nope. It's more than 24 hours since Zac went off to consult the Head of Customer Experience. And since then, nothing. Not a word about the lens I was interested in. There's something comic about their ineptitude.

    Thanks I've sent you a pm - is that what you meant?

    To much like hard work to buy from

    Yesterday, I tried to contact them about a £1500 lens. It took three shots to get through their telephone system. I eventually got through, and a fellow sent me some information. I replied to his email - and got ignored. Tried phoning, and got put through to the answerphone. I left a message...

    Manual focus standard lens for Nikon FF

    Thinking about the options for a pictorially attractive MF lens to use on a D800, sitting on a tripod, using liveview to focus. I like the idea of the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 Planar, or the Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4, which I'm guessing come out of the same factory. I would like something that is actually...

    Have we reached ‘peak’ image quality?

    The law of diminishing returns is setting in with a vengeance. Once we looked forward to digital cameras that could produce an adequate 5"x7" print. Now cameras with 40megapixel plus resolutions are everyday, complete with huge dynamic ranges, and credible performances at up to 2000 ISO. The...

    What birds or bird have you seen today – communal thread, I hope!

    I think it's a juvenile siskin.

    CameraNu in the Netherlands - nul points

    Another two weeks. Post nl have lost the replacement bag. More futile communication with CameraNu's utterly inept, wholly unhelpful "customer service". Post nl have also lost a separate small packet containing a pair of straps. That's three out of three. It doesn't occur to CameraNu that they...
