    Silverstone Moto GP 2019

    OK Snerkler I give up, it's time to go and find another game (j/k) - that last one is superb. I can imagine some not so keen, dare I say it's a marmite image. Thanks for sharing.

    Silverstone Moto GP 2019

    Thanks for the tip Snerkler, I find panning shots at 120-160 fairly successfull with cyclists, still a lot of misses but usually some I'm happy with in the mix. Trying even that with these guys, at these speeds, is a whole different and very blurry world of pain for me :LOL: I will try your...

    Silverstone Moto GP 2019

    Great set, thanks for sharing, #1 is outstanding, I need a lot more practice to pan at that speed and get anything sharp. Enjoyable weekend there though.

    MotoGP Silverstone

    Thanks Andrew, I did try slowing it down and panning and in some images even acheived some blur on the wheels, sadly it was often accompanied but lots of blur on the rest of bike and rider :LOL::LOL: Clearly needs more practice.

    Well I was fairly pleased with these until I saw @Hertsman 's thread - those images were impressive. I offer some of mine here for comments and critique so don't hold back. I can only hope to improve.

    Nikon Zoom lens 0ver 300mm - £500 budget

    Without wishing to sidetrack this thread both of you correcting my post are incorrect. My son is definitely a HE. He has bought a 50-500 and he is using it on his D7100. My second post was a simple continuation of my first. The op stated they they were using a D7000 so I thought the added detail...

    Nikon Zoom lens 0ver 300mm - £500 budget

    And he's using it on a d7100, so as mentioned above getting even more length due to the cropped sensor.

    Nikon Zoom lens 0ver 300mm - £500 budget

    Consider a used lens, there are some great bargains to be had. Shop around and check pricing/quality but you can't beat the value for money. If you use one of the well known places MPB, LCE etc etc the return policies are pretty good if it's not up to standard when you get it. My son has just...

    London Camera Exchange - Used Gear

    I'v bought from and sold items to our local LCE and have been very happy with the items and prices every time. That being said I've always done this in-shop so have been able to inspect and test the equipment first. I'm not sure that buying online would give you a different result.

    Discolouration on focus ring

    Thanks cymruchris, that's great. I thought that was the case but was confident someone on here would have come across it before and know for sure.

    Discolouration on focus ring

    Thank you Sky, that's really helpful. I did think it would be but it's a lot of money (to me) just to take the gamble. Thanks also for the links

    Discolouration on focus ring

    Hi, I'm looking to purchase a lens and due to locations cannot hold it until I've bought. I've noticed some discolouration on the focus ring and wondered if anyone else has seen this before and could offer an explantion as to what has caused it and more importantly is it likely to affect the...

Theyare one of the most expensive ou there but check out their customer satisfaction rates - "Zen won PC Pro's annual Best Broadband Provider award for a 15th consecutive year."

    Australia doesn't exist

    Ahh the Internet, having been an avid consumer of all things www based since it's inception there's very little left out there that can truly shock me. But to find a site that can make me laugh out loud on a busy train restores my faith in it. Others here in the 9.45 to London Victoria are...

    Beginner Dx to Fx?

    Hi, I had this decision to make recently as well. What swung it for me was the consideration of the quality drop using a dx lens on a fx body - @StewartR said "But be aware that DX crop mode implies a big reduction in your pixel count. The D750 is 24 MP in FX mode but only 10.67 MP in DX mode...

    On holiday with Ill girlfriend

    I'd simplify the camera gear to as little as possible, one lens, no tripods etc and go out and see what you can get. There's got to be something worth looking at. If nothing else it gives you the chance to practice your skills. Sorry to hear your partner is not well but if she's happy for you to...

    Same day delivery Rentals

    I hired a Sigma 150-600 from @StewartR at Lens for Hire. Great service but I'm not sure what they could do at such short notice. Try calling them - 0800 61 272 61 or 01628 639941 I guess it will depend how local you are to them.
