    MAC or PC?

    Oh no - not a Mac v's PC debate! This won't end well! I recently had the same dilemma and decided to get a new iMac because: I have an iPhone and MacBook Air and I'd like the integration They look nicer They last longer (my last iMac lasted 7 years and I sold it for 30% of what I paid for...

    Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Owners Thread

    Hi folks - my 5D4 arrived in time for last weekends wedding so I gave it a whirl. My second 5D4 arrived yesterday so I'll take them out again this Saturday. If anyone has any questions let me know here - I also wrote a little review in case you're interested...

    Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Owners Thread

    Just bought two for £3000 each. My friend organised a group buy and we managed to get the price down. Altogether we ordered 20. After I collect VAT back and sell the 5D3's the price is pretty reasonable.

    Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Owners Thread

    Can't believe it's this expensive! Pretty underwhelming specs if I'm honest but the proof is in the files. £2400 in 8 months though I bet...

    Couple's big day is ‘ruined’ by an amateur photographer

    I don't get it. You hire a STUDENT with zero experience to photograph your wedding and pay her a modest fee. What were they expecting?

    Star Wars VII - What did you think? (NO SPOILERS!)

    Not sure how I can give an opinion without a spoiler so ignore this for those who haven't seen it... I really enjoyed it... but a little too predictable for me. Some great new characters, and I really enjoyed seeing the original case. My main gripe - it was virtually the same story as A New...

    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    Yeah, I'm really enjoying using it. It's a great little fun camera. Not a particularly sensible purchase but until the A7SII hits the shelves I'm gonna enjoy using it a lot for now.

    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    Yeah, I got the metabones MKIV too - it seems quite snappy - but every now and again the lens just won't focus and you have to take it off and put it back on again. Not ideal at a wedding...

    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    What's bayer mush? Yes I googled it! This was with the 55/1.8 Zeiss - I've got an adapter to try out with my Canon glass but it seems a little flakey trying it at home.

    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    Started using the A7R2 at work today - it's not bad. Tricky to tell what's in and out of focus on the LCD though. Even zoomed in nothing seems that sharp. A7R2 Wedding Photos by Albert Palmer, on Flickr

    Canon 7D for wedding?

    I'm making an assumption on your skills here (so apologies if I have this all wrong!), but forget about the gear. If this is your first wedding then the camera isn't going to be the limiting factor. Any DSLR made in the last 5 years, coupled with a reasonable lens will be more than up to the...

    Two recent happenings - How to act against it?

    Sadly I don't think you can expect to put images online and maintain control over where they end up. I'm not saying it's right! Just the way it is. What to do? Charge accordingly for the job beforehand. Include the money you expect to make from the print/image.

    Does Canon have anything to compete with the D750 and D810

    He's probably not using the silent shutter then. The D810 is much louder as is the D750. Not a big deal for most people but I value it :)

    Does Canon have anything to compete with the D750 and D810

    Nikon certainly has Canon beat in some areas. ISO performance, focus and dynamic range. What has stopped me from switching is the silent shutter on the 5D3 - it's invaluable as a wedding photographer. Otherwise personal preference for Canon's smother tones. That's all I've got!

    £150 compact camera v iPhone 6

    I'm sure the Sony would be better in several respects (zoom for 1 reason!) - but out of convenience I would still take the iPhone 6. The camera is definitely good enough - especially if you have the D750 for the important images.

    Avoid buying a camera with dead pixel?

    It wouldn't bother me. Also, am I right in thinking that Lightroom automatically removes these?

    True Detective

    Yup another recommendation for Fargo. So so good. Really enjoyed the first true detective. Absolutely brilliant.

    mirrorless cameras for weddings

    I don't but I know a few guys who do, specifically in churches. The Fuji is popular as is the Sony A7S. Especially as you can set the camera up at the front of the church, and control it from your phone at the back.

    Better Call Saul

    I didn't realise it was the end of the season! Great show but I echo your wife's sentiments. Is that it!?
