    Alternative to Flickr???

    Is there a way to embed 500px images on internet forums using BB code? If I could embed images for posting in communities like this, I would probably sign up with them rather than Flickr.

    Flickr Pro

    A couple of Flickr questions if you please? Can the two months free Adobe creative cloud bundled with the Flickr Pro membership be used by existing creative cloud photography subscribers? Also, does anyone have any working discount codes for Flickr annual membership please?

    Vest to attach lens cases and pouches to

    Hello all. I was thinking of getting a lowepro sliplock vest for my birthday, but the large/extra large appears to have been discontinued. Can anyone recommend something similar? There are a lot of Molle vests out there so if anyone can recommend one, that would be cool.

    Beginner Silverstone practice day

    Composition and sense of movement is good, but it is a little bit soft. I can't see any exif data to understand your settings, but possibly consider a smaller aperture? Also, colour popping should be made a criminal offence, so don't do it. Ever.

    Air Travel

    Er, yeah okay. A zombie attack might also happen mid flight. Baggage bins are designed to stay shut regardless of weight.

    I use those batteries and I have no idea how anyone would think they look like bullets!

    Air Travel

    Does anyone else stick camera gear in their pockets when flying to get round the baggage weight restrictions for carry on? I can get a camera body and a 15-85 and a 70-300 in my big coat pockets. It's worked every time I have done it so far, as otherwise I would be over the carry on allowance...

    Primes vs Zooms for Motorsport

    I was reading an article by Darren Heath recently, where he was extolling the virtues of primes over zooms for motorsport. Does anyone have a view on this? I shoot canon, and the only real prime options at motorsport focal lengths are L series glass. That said, there seem to be a lot of used...

    Rude?

    I think the mods should disable the like button and force people to actually post comments. Unlike shutternutters (www.wdphoto.co.uk/forum) I find this community very lacking in terms of feedback and critique.

    Honningsvåg

    The most northerly I have ever been - Honningsvåg is quite literally the end of the world. Or at least it felt like it. 1 Honningsvåg, Norway-111 by G B, on Flickr 2 Honningsvåg, Norway-97 by G B, on Flickr 3 Honningsvåg, Norway-60 by G B, on Flickr 4 Honningsvåg, Norway by G B, on Flickr

    Menai bridge

    It's rather overdone for my taste, but I like the composition.

    Olden, Norway

    Olden is a small village at the end of a Fjord in Norway. There isn't much there - a small tat shop and some tents where you can buy excursions. However, walk out of the village and the scenery is simply stunning. 1 Marella Explorer Midnight Sun Cruise - Olden-17 by G B, on Flickr 2 Marella...

    Padded case for Canon 60D/70D Body

    Can anyone suggest a case or bag type item I can use for putting a canon 60d/70d without a body into my camera bag? I don't need it to store a lens, I just want a small padded bag or case to hold the camera body when in transit.

    Blancpain Endurance Cup Silverstone

    Brilliant collection and hard to pick a winner from that lot. I really wanted to go this year - I have been promising I would get to a Blancpain round since about 2015, but sadly I had a christening.

    How do you carry your kit at the track?

    Simple question really. How do you carry your kit at the circuit and what is in your bag? Whenever I go to a track, I always think I have taken too much kit with me. At the moment, I take: A Canon 70D A Canon 60D A Canon 15-85 A Tamron 70-300 (nice lens, but can produce blurry images at wide...

    DNG File Repair/Recovery

    I can view the preview by opening them in the windows picture viewer, but I presume that's because it can access the jpeg preview. I will try irfanview and see if I can then open them with that.

    DNG File Repair/Recovery

    I have recovered the files - I did that using Recuva. The issue I have is that the files I have recovered will not import into lightroom because lightroom says they are damage. I am looking for something I can run on those images to repair them.

    I am hoping some of you may be able to help me. I recently had a backup fail on a hard drive and it appeared the partition on the backup drive was corrupted. I therefore tried to sort it out, but somehow (and I still don't know how) I managed to delete the partition on my primary images disk...

    Reasonably priced 95mm ND filters?

    I am looking for an ND filter for my Tamron 150 - 600 which has a 95mm thread. The prices that people want to charge for a bloody ND filter of this size are frankly insane. Can anyone suggest somewhere that sells these at a reasonable and sensible price?
