    B&W Let's see your Black and White photos

    X100T - New Forest X100T does seem to suffer from lens flare but can sometimes come up with some interesting results.

    B&W Let's see your Black and White photos

    Hmm just set myself up a challenge to only shoot B&W for a year - not helped by Photoshop converting RAWs back to colour and me agonizing whether they look better in B&W or Colour..

    Campervan - The new "must have" piece of equipment ?

    Hi Stuart, apologies - just noted your reply; the company we used is https://www.duvalay.co.uk/ We were recommended this company by a friend and they do not disappoint. They do custom jobbies too.

    Campervan - The new "must have" piece of equipment ?

    The campervan is great if like you say you are doing some early morning togging and you are the only one sleeping there. However, we found that unless you get a top end "mattress topper" that has been created to exactly match the seat profile (when in "bed mode") it can be a very uncomfortable...

    Campervan - The new "must have" piece of equipment ?

    I've had a campervan (t5.1) for around 2+ years now. Summary: CamperVan -> Tent But only just, the key to sleeping well is having a customised mattress (topper) that perfectly fits into the shape of the van at the back otherwise you will end up with many a night waking up with a bad back if...

    What is your biggest weakness in photography?

    Taking someone with me, they get all stressy and tut tut when I've spent 60 minutes and walked less than 200 yards.. yet still I invite them/can't say bugger off.

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

    Updating the firmware and/or switching output to Adobe RGB seems to have done the trick. Banding is very minimal now.

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

    Ah ok, banding is also appearing in the JPGs that camera is producing but will take on your advice onboard to narrow it down. I'm hoping the firmware is going to fix it, just frustrating I dont have access to the camera until I get back.

    Thanks, I'll note that too and add it to the "if that doesn't work move to the next step" list. ;)

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

    I knocked it off and it didn't make any difference. Next two steps is to try with the new firmware and if that doesn't work change from sRGB to Adobe RGB as apparently that can cause problems too.

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

    Thanks. In terms of the firmware update yes I noticed on the "fix list" that "banding was improved". I've performed an update so once I get back this weekend I will give it a try.

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

    I've bounced between manufacturers like a steel ball in a pinball machine, I have no loyalty to any - rather whatever takes my fancy. Though admittedly I loved the Olympus OMD E5 and had that for a good 5-6 years despite having a Canon 1D MK II, Nikon D3 and a range other Canon/Nikon cameras...

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

    Sunset at Hatchet Pond, seemed to be suffering from banding really bad. This is straight out the camera and recropped in photoshop (and white balance reset). I have just updated firmware from 1.01 to 2.00 and changed output from SRGB to Adobe RGB so will try again this sunday to see if it...

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

    As a market leader in the field, Sony only have to do enough to keep consumers interested. Now a major player who is taking it seriously is entering the field I suspect Sony will be more than happy to ramp up their game - their R&D functionality/performance will far outstrip their current...

    A different type of 'wedding' photography!

    As a value added service, convince them to pay for Craig Charles to do the voice over Takeshi Castle style.

    Chilling with the bro's..

    I don't normally take photos of cows but wandering past I spotted this small group and I swear it had its arm (leg) around the neck of the other one. Best bit, their eyes kept following me with the expression "Seriously, what you looking at?" Ahem.. Chilling with the bros by Mark Barnes, on Flickr

    Top three best cameras you have ever bought

    Canon 5D MkI - when it first came out, my first foray into prosumer tech. Olympus OMD EM5 - MK I - to me this entire system was a revelation in terms of portability and quality of image. Had this when it first came out (2012) and only just recently sold it all last month. Awesome. Nikon D3S -...
