Re: My new Mac App - PhotoHound

Great job David, unfortunately not available for Windows. Not yet, though my AlamySizeCheck does something similar (though not as much). It is Mac, Windows and Linux and is donationware, so you can play with it for free. PhotoHound is an exercise to see how well the Mac App Store works. In someways...

Re: Wide and Fish adaptors

Reference braeside's account of the Photoworld day in Edinburgh last Sunday, I also enjoyed the gathering and much admired Duncan McEwan's pictures from New Delhi. Getting a sharp image of fast moving action under difficult circumstances is a feat. Kenneth Martin is a class act and I never cease to...

Re: Wide and Fish adaptors

Had a good meeting today in Edinburgh (Photoworld Day). David Kilpatrick did a good job extolling the virtues of the diminutive NEX-5, though I'm still not sure it would suit me. I have recently got a used Leica rangefinder for work where I cannot carry a lot of heavy gear and lenses on holiday. I'm...

Re: 85/2.8 35/1.8 24/2 MTF curves on sony Japan

I have just got the Sony 2.8/85mm SAM lens ( £198 at Jessops) ................ I no longer have a desire for a Zeiss 85/1.4, this lens will meet my needs. +2 stops and A Zeiss, to boot! I'd still WANT it, but that winning lottery ticket keeps eluding me! :cry: Dusty I guess Dusty, but I have the CZ...

Re: 85/2.8 35/1.8 24/2 MTF curves on sony Japan

I've never got hold of the 85mm lens, so far. But I'm pretty sure the converter will not work, my 2X does not work with the SAM 30mm f/2.8, shows the usual hunting action associated with SSM lenses used on converters. David I have just got the Sony 2.8/85mm SAM lens ( £198 at Jessops) and can confi...

Re: 30 Keys to Stock Photography

Excellent article David, I have benefited from your guidance in Stock Photography over the years, though my rewards have been much more modest! - Folks probably don't realise how much work is involved in taking and keywording Stock and just how many photos you have to have in the libraries to get a ...

Re: Alpha 580 review is now up

David, Seasons Greetings, I appreciate the excellent reviews, probably the most trusted on the net. I was not sure what my current subscription status was, I think I cancelled the automatic PayPal subscription as I hate those automatic things that catch me out. I have been receiving the printed maga...

Re: Concert Photography

Thanks Frank, I much appreciate and value your critique. By the way, I apologise if you are getting a pop-up copyright box appearing over each slide, this is something that just started happening in Zenfolio recently, a bug I think. Hopefully they will fix it soon. Next time I get a chance to shoot ...

Looking for a genuine Minolta 55mm front lens cap. (LF-1055) It is for a 100mm Macro.

Thanks Frank, great use of high ISO on the A900. I'll try 3200 next time and see how it processes!
