A900 in St Ives

Unread postby swanseadave » Tue Mar 01, 2011 11:26 am

Last May on a short break I saw a stout gentleman with a A900 and 18-55(I think) around his neck.When I spoke to him,it was apparent he was German.We exchanged a few words,as much as my rusty German would allow and parted.
I saw him several times during the day and not once did I see him use the camera.Curious.

Hi Dave - welcome to the forum :D .

I must admit that sometimes I go out with my camera, fully intending to take a shot or two, but never get inspired to actually press the shutter. Perhaps he was haing an off day!

A strange combination as I thought that 18-55 was APS-C only, may be not. I think the A850/A900 have the option of using APS-C lenses with reduced coverage, and I know Glenn on this focum has some wonderful 18-55 shots.

I hope we can look forward to seeing some of your St. Ives pictures. I viisted there last July and it has lots of photo opportunities.
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

Thank you.You`re quite right of course,the 18-55 is APS.C only.He had his hand resting on top of the camera so although it was clearly a 900,I didn`t see the lens well enough.

Unfortunately, the only day we had in St Ives was gray and drizzly so nothing much to shout about.
I haven`t yet worked out how to post pictures on here but here is a link to the best I could get in those conditions.http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4002/4631752676_e9df3eccf8_z.jpg

I hope the link works and I`ve not transgressed by posting it.

Regards,Dave :D

Hi Dave and welcome to the forum.

I clicked your link and right-clicked on your shot, selected "copy image location" (on Firefox) and getting back here I clicked "Post reply".
You'll be addressed to a new page where you'll notice a big blank window (where you have to write your text) and above it small gray boxes.
click on the one written "Img"
you'll have something like this [ img ] [ /img ]
just click your mouse in the middle and select Ctrl + V (paste - that's what you had copied) et voila, your image is linked here like this:
