  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    Hi guys,
    Just wondering if any of the sports togs on here tether their cameras to their laptops? Why or why not?
    Thanks guys.

    I believe some do this but I've never seen it at any games I've attended. Sometimes you need to jump up and move fairly quickly so tethered would just hinder you.

    I have done and it can be extremely effective. However, if your camera goes to sleep it can take a few moments to re-establish the connection to the computer when you wake it up by pressing the shutter, meaning you cant take the shot you want (talking Canon 1D4). So you risk losing an important shot, but gain the faster workflow. It also takes up a USB port which you might need, and uses quite a lot of battery on the laptop which might otherwise be in standby.
