Re: KM5D sensor failure?

I'm not complaining there is a problem (used both bodies a lot got my money's worth out of them and then some), I was just curious as to what the issue is. There is an interesting development I have noticed...that is if I take a second shot straight away afterwards it's fine, I also tried it in cont...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I rarely contribute to discussions, being a keen and serious amateur who feels that he has little to contribute and a lot to learn. HoweverI find this discussion extremely shallow. I used to use Lightroom, but DxO is where all me shots go before I even look at them; its automatic treatment gets the...

Re: Sony Alpha A99 Field Test Report

IMO a pretty silly article "In short, ISO is an increasingly shaky metaphor that promotes misunderstanding, obscures what your camera is doing and robs us of the tools we need to get the most out of our cameras. Isn’t it time for something better?" Most people with an interest in photograp...

Re: Sony a77iii rumor

A year later and still no news this is quite a long time since the A77II came out (4 years), no doubt people will be watching to see if something turns up (ie the next 6 months) if it doesn't...well :shock:

What am I missing? millennial photography...

I had heard of her but... never taken any notice didn't look at her work but I did recently. https://www.instagram.com/jessicakobeissi/?hl=en I'm a bit lost for words as the...

Noticed strange purple blooming at the top, much less at low ISO quite a lot more at high ISO assume the CCD is on the way out?
Lens change no effect same, sensor looks clean this body does have FBF issue (my original one is working still was fixed under warranty)

Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2

I borrowed this off a friend and his 5dMkIII to test. I will be doing a video review on this when I have time to edit the footage. As far as I can see it's only Canon and Nikon mounts. Beast of a lens some heft but very well built and I'm impressed with the image quality, it's very usable wide open ...

It's quite cheap the first one, let us know what your thoughts are on it.

Other reviews can be found here, I also go into the operation of the XPro which isn't really hard to get used to

Re: Fuji X10 on it's last legs....

Prices seem to have jumped up quite a bit I'll dig around and have a look. The Fuji has for some reason decided to work again no idea why at the moment, but it's getting on a bit needs replacing at some point

Re: Godox TT350, TT685S and X Pro S controller

I've not used those but the AD series is evidently very popular from what I've seen. I can see why they are catching on cost/performance it's hard to match. I sold the F20M to an A7 user as I wasn't really using it much, still trying to move one of the Metz flashes I use flash quite a bit outside so...

Re: Godox TT350, TT685S and X Pro S controller

Some thoughts after extensive testing of the flashes. TT350 Quite like this small flash 2 x AA cycle times are faster than the F20M and it's far more versatile, except it can't do the TTL Optical Wireless which probably won't be a problem as it's got the radio build in. Controls dead easy LCD is als...

Re: Fuji X10 on it's last legs....

Problem is low light one reason for the Fuji was the faster lens and covered a common range. If I start buying into another ILC system then the speed isn't there unless you get bigger more expensive lenses (same for e mount if I got a body). I see Sony have a new RX100VI, might push prices down on p...

Godox TT350, TT685S and X Pro S controller

I have 3 review units to play with I previously used the Li-ion version of the 685S (basically the same flash just this one is 4 x AA)
Any questions hit me I've got them here to experiment with. So far XPro S controller is looking very nice I will add additional thoughts as time goes by!

Re: How Much Exposure Error Can Be Made With The Fuji X-T2 And The Olympus E-M1 Mark II And Still Have A Usable Image?

It is surprising because the Fuji's do have good DR at least the older ones I used no complaints there. But I've very little experience of micro 4/3 so if it's doing that well people will be pleased. I've nothing against users who go for those cheaper cameras they've improved a lot since I used the ...
