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...
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:
was just browsing the net (like you do) & stumbled across this interview..
quite liked the concept :)
although it's very "niche", i can't imagine there would be a lot of mainstream demand..
Quite rare to see these being sold nowadays & this looks pretty nice & at a great price.
Generally they still go for upwards of £500!!!
They look Great, they are a joy...
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...
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...
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 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...
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:
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...
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...
just as the title suggests one of my LX3 shots made the front cover of the local paper last week :smile:
Dozens of workers still in dark after garage closure - News - gethampshire
i mean, yeah it kinda sucked losing our jobs but i finally took a few shots i liked after a few non...
posted a few items in your flickr group a while back & thought i'd better join up :smile:
i have 2 cameras you could describe as compacts & one of them's definitely serious!
i have an LX3 which should go everywhere with me (hasn't lately) and a Leica Digilux2
i suppose i have to...
