    The FG Wedding Thread

    Top tips...might try that. Though my eye sight isn't great. I will keep trying them though. It's essentially not finished so I want it sorting. I just don't understand how they can not be chasing for payment on something so valuable.

    The FG Wedding Thread

    I proposed a few weeks ago...she said yes. However, I have an engagement ring that I cannot pay for. The guy I got it from is an independent Jeweler in the UK and came highly recommended. We had weeks of back and forth designing the thing (and it still needs resizing and finishing off with...

    Anyone have experience with micro 4/3rds format cameras?

    Really eyeing up the new Panasonic GX-7. As good as the new Oly E-M1 is, I just prefer that soap bar form of the NEX, PEN and this new Panasonic. Especially in the silver body. Been reading loads of reviews and lots of APS-C vs m4/3 comparisons and my conclusion is there is basically no...

    Possible Yosemite/Death Valley problems for up coming holiday?

    Hi all Flying out to San Fran on the 22nd of the month and a few days later the plan is to drive out to Yosemite, stay in a motel near the main bit with half dome, take Tioga pass through the park and then down to Death Valley (Furnace Creek), a night there, and then onwards to vegas. Now the...

    Lens choice for San Fran/Yosemite/Vegas/Hoover Dam/Death Valley

    Oh excellent, cheers Edkwon. I'll have a rifle through those and see which lenses took what. I have to say though there is a nice spread of kit going on in the ones I have looked at so far.... E-M5, D600, S90 and even a Galaxy S3 which took a far better landscape photo than I was expecting it...

    Anyone have experience with micro 4/3rds format cameras?

    There is definitely a limit. As I said the CZ 24-70 F2.8 completely dwarfed my camera. Thankfully, the LA-EA2 lens adapter needed has its own tripod mount, so I was able to attach my joby sling there and maintain a bit more balance. When shooting I pretty much just held the lens! Grip on the...

    Anyone have experience with micro 4/3rds format cameras?

    Yeah I have been looking to day at what is available and between Panasonic and Olympus there is a staggering choice. Sony's NEX choices are getting fleshed out a little now, but I think there is a bit too much overlap at the moment and there is no real choice at all if you want a fast telephoto...

    Lens choice for San Fran/Yosemite/Vegas/Hoover Dam/Death Valley

    Not buying, but renting. I don't see the big deal, I hired a 24-70 F2.8 to shoot a wedding only a day before and it didn't stop me from doing the job. I don't tend to play with things much, I just get on with using them. Will check out your photos Black Eddie. As I say, the lens may not...

    Anyone have experience with micro 4/3rds format cameras?

    Really liking the new OMD-E1 and its seriously making me re-consider the trip down SONY lane I have taken. At the time it was NEX-6 or the OMD-E5 and on balance, I thought the NEX-6 had it. The lenses for the NEX range are getting nicely fleshed out, although there seems to be a fair bit of...

    Lens choice for San Fran/Yosemite/Vegas/Hoover Dam/Death Valley

    So got a little road trip planned and will be visiting all the places listed in the title. I have an NEX-6 and plan on travelling fairly lightly so I don't want to be hauling lenses. I have the 16-50 Power Zoom, the 55-210 and the 35mm F1.8. Of those, I'll definitely be taking the 35. Its a...

    Detroit, A lovely city?

    Wont be getting there until the sat afternoon I don't think. As I am with a group of other PhD guys and my supervisors... will probably not be able to venture too far from the Ren Center. But I will see what the situation is when I get there... Looking forward to it (though not the presenting...

    Detroit, A lovely city?

    Oh dear Sounds sketch I was hoping there'd be some nice architecture to photograph. I guess its a good job I now own a Mirror-less NEX as opposed to my large EOS 7D. It is much more discreet when you are carrying it about and is easy to conceal. No night time work though by the sounds of it...

    Detroit, A lovely city?

    Heading out to Detroit this weekend for the SAE World Congress next week (I will be presenting and I am not looking forward to that one bit!). I have heard some, not so nice things about Detroit. Was also told to pony up for a taxi directly from the airport to the Marriot (which is the...

    Meh different strokes. Not my kind of humor. He is much funnier with is off the cuff comments though. - - - Updated - - - Why do you say that? What motive do they have to rig the time?

    6 from me Hammond made the Pagani segment a bit boring to be honest. The formula for super car reviews is tired, they did everything you would expect. Glitzy close ups with cool lighting effects and then gurning like an idiot at the speed of the thing. I realize they are probably very limited...

    The F1 Technical Developments Thread

    I did wonder this too. But I can see how they will do that if the turbine is the bit on the end. Its the intake I am confused about, I can't see where they would squeeze it back in under the air box. Assuming the black box is the air box which fed by the intake over the drivers head, then the...

    The F1 Technical Developments Thread

    Interesting gap between the compressor and the turbine. I assume the compressor is on the right, sucking from what I assume is the airbox? That trash-can looking item... is this possibly a form of generator for the KERS? Where I work I know of a project that has, I think, one of the first...

    Hoping JC doesn't ham up the making a car segment. Hopefully the fake comedy will be toned down and if not then at least its gotten out of the way right away. Slightly perplexed at the Conti GT speed being rallied... I mean it is a bit unrealistic. Granted the fiesta test was also unrealistic...

    Chopped it all in for a mirror-less!

    Hi All Long time since I posted here! Anyway, at the end of last year I looked at my 7D and its various lenses and paraphernalia and I just thought " I just haven't done this thing justice. It just hasn't been used as much as it should have ". I sat for a while thinking what I was going to do...
