    The only times the evf should go black is if there's no light, maybe something to do with Live View setting Effect being on and needing to be off? But if that's the answer you'll need to check the exposure as a black evf could mean a black picture.

    When I first read about the A7 I was a bit disappointed but later came to like the idea. I'd have been happy if it matched the performance of my 5D but in reality the A7 just crushed it and it still does almost everything I want. Reading this thread and some others I'm often amazed at how much...

    On Luminous Landscape there's a LOT of Nikon love and they seem to think the Zx's are just about perfect. A while ago I got banned for calling a screaming fanboy and fanboy, I think it was insisting Nikon invented AF and just about everything else that did it for me. Anyway, over there it's...

    Tactical contact against motorbike thieves

    I thought some cops had been prosecuted for this? I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure I saw something on the news about this. I'm all for it but a bit miffed that the worthless yobs cost hundreds to thousands of pounds of damage when they bounce off a cop car.

    I've just been checking some film era prime prices on evil bay and My Gosh they're still going up. It looks like it's getting harder to find bargains so I'm glad I bought mine before the prices went up so much.

    If you look at Sony prices in isolation they may seem high but people seem to forget that you have to compare prices to the competition. I often wonder why seemingly bright people don't do this. If it's brain fade they really should remember to compare prices before slagging Sony off and if it's...

    I wonder what they're up to at DPR? I don't read every review over there so I may be missing some equally bad/biased ones but I don't remember them having what seems to be an unfounded dig like this before.

    Yes, with my cameras I can cycle through different displays like that but I'm certain that on some I can also select which icons appear or not so if not selected they wont appear on any of the screens I cycle through. I can't remember what camera does what but do remember choosing what icons...

    Maybe in time you'll forget the trauma all this has caused you and move on. Things you can do with a mag that you can't do with the internet... Eat chips out of them. Pile them up and stand on them to reach that thing on the high shelf. Put them under a wobbly table leg. Put a cup of hot...

    Good God droj what a conspiracy laden joyless world you've painted. Magazines have to be run for a profit and we have to accept that and if you can't filter the ads out and stop yourself compulsively buying all that shiny kit then just stay away from the shelves. It's a long time since I...

    Advise on Sony Walk Around Lens !

    I agree with Toni about APS-C / FF lenses, they just don't transfer over well IMO. Whatever format you go for have you thought about going for a standard range f3.5-5.6 zoom and a f1.8 prime, 24, 28, 35 or 50mm or equivalent? Just those two lenses could cover most day out and holiday needs.

    Nostalgia is it a thing of the past?

    When I was at college I bought a calculator which cost £40, nearly three weeks wages. I still have it and it still works but these days you can probably get a similar one in a Pound shop. Until I got that one I had a cheaper one and when the batteries were running down it gave increasingly...

    WCMUT....what cheered me up today

    I don't think I've seen that one. Anyway. We all have bugs and are going through the cough sweets so I was pleased when I opened a drawer and found a bottle of Olbas oil. It's 19 years out of date but it seems fine :D

    I know it's embroidery but I might like it if it looked like something rather than looking more like the result of not being able to turn the sowing machine off as she tried to pull it out.

    Not a photo mag but on the same processing lines... I posted a picture on this site and someone said it was the best picture I'd posted. I didn't tell them it was the most processed. Just goes to show :D but at the time I felt a little :( I suppose some subjects and pictures suit it and some...

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

    The reason I got into all this was the question of old film era lenses being better or worse on APS-C than on FF and for me the answer is quite simple, they perform less well due to the increased enlargement. My point about the Oly 25mm f1.8 thrashing my film lenses on MFT was just to...

    What an astounding statement. We as a species probably have an end date but you do know that the planet definitely has one? Right?

    We need to get ER involved. They could all swim out and lay in front of the machine and stop it tearing up the sea bed. One thing that worries me, and I've said before, is that we have to be sure that moving to greener stuff is really greener and not just something that initially and...
