Re: Challenge 32: "Windswept !... It's Fall'ing..."

Nice entry shot. A very pleasant and dreamy shot. Would you care to share the secret on how you took this shot? I move the camera when I press the shutter. Usually it takes about a shutter speed of 1/6th to get the desired effect. The colours came out slightly pink on this due to the light so I lef...

Re: Zeiss 24-70 Sweet spot

Ooo chocolate. Ooo Zeiss 24-70. I want one!! I think. Still cant decide if I need a wider angle. Got stung on Ebay trying to buy a Minolta G 17-35mm lens which wasn't. So now I'm indecisive all over again. Lovely shot. Get the KM 17-35 f2.8-4: other than a little soft @35mm and wide open, it is a w...

Re: a700 ability

Hi I'm with Michelle on the silly questions front. I'd love to know. My sone is doing music at college and uni and I took a few of his gig at college but they were rubbish as I havent a clue how to set the camera for indoor low light stuff. How do you get the light as per the stage lighting and do y...

Sunrise - Nova Scotia style.

Hi All - following on from the very lovely sunset shots recently I thought I would post some sunrise ones. I don't usually get up this early but I was still on Britsh time and it was well worth it.

Re: A850 and 28-75 in Jessops at £1299

Oh sooooo jealous. My A850 cost around £1800. And although I'm skint I'm desperately trying to find a wide - ish angle zoom lens for it to replace the Carl Zeiss 16-80mm which sits permanently on my A350. Anyone finding a cheap 24-70mm please let me know.

Landscape wide angle zoom for full frame

[color=#FFBF40]Hi All,

I'm looking to buy and good wide angle zoom lens for my full frame Sony. I've currently got a Carl Zeiss16-80mm lens which I use on my A350 but it is a cropped sensor lens. Can anyone recommend a good equivalent for the A850. [ /color] :?

[quote="Birma"]The Eden Project was obviously a great place to photograph flowers :D (I have some more sets to share in the Flowers thread.)

I love the shot of Alium if that it what the purple round one is. It's superb. Your photos are making me most envious of your trip. :wink:

Re: Water Shots

Henry - love the water fall shot above. What shutter speed did you use? I used ISO 100 at f16 in order to get a shutter speed of 1/6 second at 18mm. I had no tripod with me so braced myself very well and then let SSS do it's magic. :) It worked well. I think the 1/6th captures the water well as the...
