    Nikon High ISO

    OK generally i shoot in decent light at low ISO, occasionally i will boost ISO a bit for a fast shutter speed if needed. Anyway i was fiddling around in my bedroom last night & it was pretty dark in there, curtains closed just before dusk. I had my D4 & D810 out & i thought hey lets see how they...

    What went right today...

    Following on from the What went wrong thread i thought it would be nice to have a "What Surprisingly went right today" thread. Well after dropping my 24-70 the other day i did find my Tripod i had been looking for for ages. It was under the bed in my RV :whistling:

    Philosophy Found an Interview with working Pro using vintage compacts

    Hi guys. was just browsing the net (like you do) & stumbled across this interview.. https://www.dpreview.com/interviews/5683481585/sofi-lee-on-digital-nostalgia quite liked the concept :) although it's very "niche", i can't imagine there would be a lot of mainstream demand..

    Nikon Walk around with D3 & old 50mm f/1.8D

    My D3 hasn't been out of the bag in way too long so it came out for a walk today. Traditionally i've never liked 50mm, find it a really boring/stifling FL so i made myself use it today just because it's small & unloved lol Remembered how much my D3 loves Red when i looked at the flower shot but...

    Philosophy Gamechanger?

    Hi guys. Over your Photography careers have you ever got any new kit that could be described as a gamechanger? Obviously most new kit provides incremental improvements but did you ever use something for the first time & be like "Wow, that is awesome" :clapping: For me it was probably my D3. it...

    Stroll Random Strolls with resurrected vintage compacts FEEL FREE TO ADD YOUR OWN IMAGES

    As suggested in the watering hole as something to do while exercising during the Covid lockdown, just to make things a bit more interesting. After doing a desk job for a decade i've barely walked more than a few hundred metres a day in that time so i've been using the extra time in the long...

    So while we're all on lockdown..

    So i was thinking.... While we're all on lockdown we are allowed to go out for exercise which for most of us i imagine will be a walk. Now i don't necessarily want to take a DSLR with me but i don't object to carrying an old compact. I imagine most of us have an old compact in a drawer somewhere...

    Leica Not bad for a 16 year old 5mpx digital camera

    I know the Digilux2 has been sneered at for being old tech & basic, well tbh it is old & slow but it has that wonderful Vario Summicron lens & the JPG's are lovely SOOC. Think of it like a classic car, only take it out on a sunny day when you are in no hurry :thumbsup:

    Nikon Never really liked my D800

    I never really liked my D800. The keeper rate wasn't great & it just felt awful in the hand :( No thumb grip. Too used to single digit bodies i guess.. Thinking back I did do the firware update & tbh the keeper rate went up dramatically but ergonomically it was nearly as bad as a canon lol...

    Been away a while & looks like a few changes...

    Hi guys, been away a while & it looks like there have been a few changes to the forum. Last time i was here it was Serious Compacts & now Cameraderie. i'm guessing that now the forum includes all cameras rather than just compacts? if so Bravo, good thinking :thumbsup: I kinda stopped coming here...
