RE: It's Official: The D7100 Destroys The 70D

My view on this whole NvC debate is this, Nikon produce some of the finest bodies I have seen. They feel great when handled, well built. On the Canon side the lenses are better than Nikons. The Nikon 80-400 old model used to be a poor relation to the Canon 100-400. There are other cases in the lens ...

RE: Myrtle Avenue Heathrow Qs

Also, the Myrtle Avenue photography spot is in fact a small grassy area, with some muddy bits. This makes it very difficult for wheelchair users! You did mention limited mobility and you may mean this in terms of wheelchair use. As mentioned there are normally like minded photographers there when th...

RE: Sudden 50D / 100-400L Issue - Any Ideas Please?

Hi, You mention the 24-105L working for a short and appearing to be operating correctly. It could still be the battery and or camera. The 24-105L is a smaller lens than the 100-400L and I guess that it would be a smaller <acronym title="Island Airlines (USA) and Eagle Air/Arnaflug (Iceland)">IS</acr...

RE: Sudden 50D / 100-400L Issue - Any Ideas Please?

The cold weather can have strange effects on batteries. Voltages can dip or spike and the electronic brains of the camera or lens may then act erratically. This is where 3rd party batteries maybe be showing a weakness... Also, people use old batteries and I believe that old batteries can exhibit cha...

RE: Photo Opportunities At Farnborough This Week?

Current information is the A320 "Sharklet" wings version is leaving as we speak. I do not think it is returning, but await to be corrected. People seem to forget that Farnborough is in effect two airshows in one. Monday to Thursday is the trade show days, the aircraft manufacturers send there "hot" ...

RE: Canon 50d With 24-105mm L-series Problem

On the subject of reliable camera repair centres I will relate a brief tale. A colleague of mine working in West London, but lives near Newcastle had an error 30 (ERR 30) on a 5D MkII. He went to a camera repair shop in the North East of England and they said the camera was a write-off. I suggested ...

RE: Spotting In LHR

The one thing all new visitors to <acronym title="London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL), United Kingdom">LHR</acronym> have to understand is that there is no dedicated viewing area. By this I mean no viewing deck, no specific spectators area. You tend to end up at hotels for some shots. On open space and r...

RE: Usage Request

My view is who is using the image. An example is the RAF Squadron or such want to use a photo of an aircraft then they get that free. If a commercial company contacts me then I will ask for a fee. If the commercial company is looking for a freebie I am wary. How many commercial organisations make a ...

RE: Upgrading Canon 20D To 50D

I have both the 40D and 50D. I have found that the 50D is great until you use the 100-400mm L lens. Then the 50D shows up the limitations of the lens. Quite alarmingly. So I use the 40D with 100-400 and 50D with other lenses, 24-105, 70-200, etc. If I was to choose one body to take with all lenses t...

RE: New Terms - What It Means For Photographers

My first post here. My thoughts run along the line of......Why have they decided to change the rules? Who does it benefit? Rules normally change to block loopholes or to give someone an advantage. This rule change appears to give all rights to <acronym title="Maersk Air (Denmark)">DM</acronym> with ...
