    Tamron 150-600 with Sigma TC1.4

    Thanks, I have D7100 & D600, would probably use it on the D7100 for wild life - don't want to get too close to the wild lions. IQ looks ok from that image - how do your rate IQ?

    Tamron 150-600 with Sigma TC1.4

    Has anyone tried using the non G2 Tamron 150-600 with a sigma (or other) TC 1.4? I have seen on another thread that canon users appear to be able to use this combination. Can Nikons also use it? Nikon say their AF is good for f8 but this will be f9 @600mm

    NAS Drives

    You could use a NAS but unless you have a leased line you upload speed is limited. go with an online provider like ProDropbox. Look at ftp sites too

    The vividness of a photo

    Do you use lightroom and do you shoot raw? With raw you really need to 'develop' the image in post. In the above image try shifting highlights up, clarity up (I always add vibrance if using clarity). There are loads of other tools that can make your images POP!

    Regret Going (or not) A2 vs A3+ ?

    A3 printers I'm are rediculously priced for that extra 90mm. I went A2 then cried when it broke

    iPhone 7

    What ino vation 2x optical zoom and bluetooth headset. Now if it's just numbers your after try the Samsung K zoom. 20mp camera, variable zoom and the choice of bt or jack for music. And you know apple will use a special protocol so you must buy apple buds sometime in the future. I'll be...

    Not sure if this the right forum but..... I have a Epson scanner - it still works fine but the PC interface has stopped working. It appears to load but stays minimised. I've tried maximising via task manger, re-installed the app and uninstalled and reinstalled the whole Epson suite. Running...

    @Wasp did you send it to Tamron? I'm sure they will refund the postage as it is a design fault

    First softbox

    OK guys, decision made. I'm getting this one What else do I need? I'm guessing just a stand? (remember its for a speed light)

    First softbox

    thanks guys but pretty confused now. As I'm aiming to do waist up portraits is the 60x90 a better size? I presume the softbox is slightly higher then the target and angled slightly down (Which is why @Phil V says the octagon version is no good)? I will need an s bracket as beam is a bit awkward...
