    Using it more and more and managed to get fiber upgrade for 30 per month installed last week. 1Gbps upload and download, it’s insanely fast!

    @Garry Edwards The simplest way to share images is to open them up on your computer then choose share screen and select the window with the image. All the participants then see the image filling their screen.

    Interwebby webinar session thingy

    Hi Gary thank you very much, that’s great! For the next one I could offer thoughts on outdoor flash, I’ve done a lot of red carpet events and tried a variety of brackets and speed lights over the years.

    A Photographer in need... Advice would be helpful

    Very sorry to hear your story. Lots of hard lessons learned too. What to do now? I wouldn’t snub the 40D for a start, I would use it. For wide aperture a nifty fifty is always a bargain so I would probably save up for that next and get from a reputable seller or dealer offering warranty...

    Found you all

    hi Rick, welcome! you have two lenses that are capable for landscape (kit lens) and Astro (50 1.8) already, so I would make a start with them and only look for more lenses when you need to do something that they can’t do. Makes sense?

    Capture 1 vs Lightroom for Fuji

    I’m mostly Canon and LR. I branched out into Fuji last year and looked at C1 and it does produce better final prints I think. So now I have two workflows events/sports (who knows maybe again one day!) with high volume with canon / LR mainly for online use, and studio and landscape with Fuji / C1...

    Ethernet cables?

    Forgot to mention the flat option. We’ve just had internet upgraded in the studio ready for more online stuff and we used the same and it’s nice and easy to install.

    Beginner AF variation between cameras?

    It will be much easier to test out of Auto mode. Try TV, AV or M and make sure AF is setup the same in each camera. I would start off with just the center AF spot. Choose the same subject, move the lens out of focus and check both cameras.

    Could have been triggertrap? I still have that and the app looks like it still works

    Livestreaming - combining multiple locations?

    I'm getting into live streaming since corona as an alternative to live events and it's progressing well. However, I'm struggling to find a good solution for combining two or more people from different locations for an online comedy show. Currently, we are using a zoom meeting for the acts for...

    Live streams

    ATEM Mini is proving cost-effective for me. It's receiving rec 709 feeds from canon cameras and sound. If you don't already have then you will need video lights for the subject.

    Software and Kit needed for Live Stream?

    I've recently got into live streaming and use the ATEM Mini switch for controlling multiple cameras, green screen and graphic overlays plus OBS if something more complicated is needed.

    Splash - trigger or not?

    I borrowed a Miops kit for this a while ago. It was pretty fiddly to setup and control the drops. Pot luck with a flash on high speed might have been faster overall!

    Canon VS Canon

    Looks like the price on the comparison website is the new price when launched not current price. 7D is more than 10 years old so real price today would be much less than quoted.

    Beginner Star photography hi Alistair, I’ve not tried any other Astro filters so can’t compare. I’m using it in the mountains where the issue is glow on the horizon and it helps a bit with that, but by no means a silver bullet. The blog link above...
