    Canon 28mm F1.8 advice

    I have one i like it! Feels really fast, especially compared to a 50mm1.8 I've found it to be plenary sharp enough for me .... Just I don't use it enough I guess :(

    Billingham Hadley pro...alternatives?

    I use a RedSnapper Duo, has been around australia with me for a year and then London for a year as well. Maybe not as nice looking as the Billingham but hard wearing and still stylish enough (IMO) :) also only 50GBP so a fair bit cheaper :) Will certainly fit a camera, my 15" mac Pro and some...

    What New Gear Have You Purchased This Week?

    Got a Pk - X mount adaptor from the recesses of the internet, thought it was a bit expensive but couldn't really find any alternatives ( for under 60 squid) so spent the 18 pounds on it but turns out its all metal!! So pretty pleased!! and fits nice and snug on the camera no rattle. . . is the...

    I'm living in Swindon at the moment and great western cameras has them for like £250 which as you say is a great deal especially with the warranty!!! They also have reasonable range of legacy glass so will have to see if I can resist that at the weekend :O

    Live music with a bit more light

    Looking good!! How did you find the MF? Personally I've never found it an issue. . . well most of the time :P You used focus peaking I assume? Guessing the refresh rate on the EVF was ok?

    Sigma 30mm 1.4 Art vs Canon 28mm 1.8

    IS won't help you with motion blur, so low light kids moving about it won't help you the faster aperture of the sigma will allow you a higher shutter speed hence more chance of 'freezing the action'. . . As has been said though its only 1/3 a stop and IS can be helpful in other areas, mainly...

    Sigma 30mm 1.4 Art vs Canon 28mm 1.8

    I was in the same predicament a while ago, I looked at loads of reviews of the 35mm f2 (old no IS version) and tired it in store etc etc Then I tired the 28mm f1.8 that a friend owned and the USM focus motor sold me on it. I couldn't really pick my between them in iq, obviously the focal...

    KENT - I never knew it could be such fun :)

    As always Matt Really nice image :D Pretty hard to crit. but I personally like star trails to either be really long or for there to be no trail at all if you get what i mean? But thats only minor and probably unavoidable due to the time needed for the orb :/ Anyways I like it :D

    No. 4 is a winner for me as well :) Only comment would be, it always seems more normal/'natural' for girls to be riding side saddle in fictional/historical type poses? Just my opinion tho :)

    boxer with belt

    Looks really good!!! If I was being hype-critical I might suggest that more of the ring in the background was visible say to the right of the frame? just to make it more obvious and depending on use for type or other text overlay? Can i guess at the lighting set up? Key high right 45degree...
