    Alternatives to Lightroom?

    I wonder when the Affinity RAW workflow software will be available, I did read somewhere it's on it's way and if it's priced like their excellent Photo will be well worth a look.

    Third party ink recommendations

    Hi Been using ink from for years, very consistent and high quality inks with indistinguishable results from Epsons own. I use their Dye inks and at under £7 for 6 100pml bottles for my CIS is unbeatable. Don't know if they do Pigment inks though as I have never had a...

    Spyder5 Elite giving warm resaults

    I went from the 4 to the 5 a couple of months ago and the only difference I noticed between the two was that my wallet was lighter, profiles were the same. The before and after shots always look very cool on the calibrated section, which is more of an indication of how bright and warm the...

    Thanks for the heads up Apparently its also possible to use a hand held device to scan your card whilst its still on your wallet or bag. Technically I suppose its possible, but not heard of it being done though

    Just switched to M43 from Nikon...

    The only real difference between FF (Most but not all) & m4/3 is if you are shooting at the extremes ie Hi or Low ISO or very fast moving subjects I suspect that in 99% of all images taken you will see no difference. But might enjoy the weight saving As for Oly QC issues, you are not going to...

    Duxford Airshow - 23.09.2017

    Great set of photos. I went on Sunday and most of mine were rubbish. Sky was great till just before the flying started then just went white with clouds. I was also my first show so guess I had something wrong with my settings, but had very little success with sharpness

    ebay - new terms to the User Agreement

    They once sided with a buyer who claimed none delivery, even though I used a fully tracked royal mail service that showed the parcel was delivered. Apparently saying delivered is not enough, it has to show the actual address it was delivered to. Which Royal Mail and many others don't.
