    A foray into the world of... Infra-Red

    I haven't looked at infra-red since I was a young lad, in the 70's, possessing a second-hand Pentax ME, and using 35mm film... I had some reasonable results from my B&W darkroom, but left infra-red and my ME behind as I moved onto the 80's... I now find myself revisiting the topic, but this...

    Why we buy camera gear from 'reputable' High St Retailers... Could it be for range, guarantees, and reliability... or could it be to just get ripped off !!! Jacobs Digital Photography & Video Bought a £500+ lens from Jacobs Cameras 2 weeks ago..... wasn't happy with the quality, so my...

    Nikon New Camera...

    Nic... You are quite right... it is a pertinent question... I want to concentrate a little more on Macro Photography (used to be a passion in my SLR days)... anyway... I wanted a larger sensor and a lens which would give me a 1:1 ratio to give me a fighting chance. However, I didn't want to go...

    Help finding a specific thread....

    A few weeks ago, I was reading a link contained in a thread, about the image quality of lenses (as someone on Ebay was asking it a lens had marks on it). The web article started by scratching a lens.... then taking images to show results... the article progressed to more abuse on the lens to...

    Nikon New Camera...

    Well.... I've gone and done it !!! It's taken 6 months or so, of looking researching etc... but I eventually decided on the Nikon D7000. Tried out the D700/800, but it was like holding a brick, let alone carrying it about... so decided on the more 'compact' APS-C sensor, D7000... The...

    Expert ???

    I see what you're saying..... but there's is a vast difference in a self confessed 'SERIOUS' amateur photographer choosing not to shoot RAW and one who doesn't know what RAW is...

    Expert ???

    I did think of that at the time, but would you really enter the digital market with a £5000+ camera, without knowing the standard formats?

    I was in a branch of Jessops yesterday just doing a bit of 'window' shopping.... there was a guy talking to one of the assistants...

    As usual... A simple question has raised so many more questions and choices for me to look into... lol. I've been busy reading all the suggested sites, which I must admit has 'opened' my eyes to a lot of different ways to look at my final choice, and the D800 as a long term investment is now...

    A Question of Quality...

    I had a look at the D800, when I was comparing and went in search of the blogs, on it... some users weren't all that impressed Like this one... As a professional with over 40 years dedicated experience with Nikon gear I was, like many other photographers, keen to get my hands on one of these...

    A Question of Quality...

    Just playing around this weekend with a Nikon D90 from work with an 18-200 VR zoom.... If I'm happy with it, I may invest in a D7000 or D700.... this being the case... I'm after a few wise words from our members.... Which will give the better quality... 16Mp sitting on an APS-C sensor...
