Re: Filter recommendations for Canon RF glass

I'm with Steve on this. I don't use filters on my lenses but always have a lens hood attached. A few years ago I tripped up some concrete stairs whilst carrying my camera and dropped it quite heavily. The lens hood on my Nikon 70-200 F2.8 most definately saved the lens from major damage. I had to bu...

Re: Busiest 747 Airports (of the past)?

You can probably include LGW, FRA, CDG, SYD, NRT, PVG, PEK and SFO. In the 70s/80s LGW always seemed to be DC-10 heaven with a few L-1011's and 747s thrown in. Actually LGW was 747 heaven as well throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's. In addition to the based BA, VS and BCAL 747's, there were multiple...

Re: Pre-screening : WingsFan

Looks like a Condor 767-300. There's a logo on the nose but without being able to enlarge a high res copy, that's my best guess.

Re: Disappearing views

Yes this is still happening. One of my shots in particular, every time it gets up to 300-400 views, it suddenly drops down to 28 or 29!

Re: how to open adobe camera raw from photoshop?

As far as I know, the SX620 does not have the option of taking RAW files, just jpeg, so you would not need Adobe Camera Raw.

Re: The Sud Aviation SE-210 Caravelle Thread

The best production quality film I’ve seen of Caravelles is in a Danish comedy from the 70’s. Olsens Banden film ‘Store Kup’ was filmed at CPH. Here’s a snippet.... https://youtu.be/6OUqR7Xf3ps Wow, what a great clip, not just of the Caravelles but all the other fantastic 70's aircraft and airlines!

Re: View Counter

Yes I've had photos that have lost views - one in particular which has dropped a few hundred on more than one occasion! I have reported this.

Disappearing views

Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere but I haven't been able to find anything on this subject. I have noticed that on a couple of my photos (I've only got 24 in the database currently) the number of views has gone down dramatically. One particular shot went from somewhere in the region of 500 ...
