Re: Airlines and heavy equipment

It is a good idea to get a photographers vest so you can, if need be, transfer stuff to your pockets at the check-in. You can't be stopped from carrying stuff about your person. Then you can cynch the straps down on the back pack to make it 'under size'.

Re: Re Inputting new signature onto images

There are several ways, depending which software you use. Personally I use an app called iWatermark Pro which is available for Mac/Windows & iPhone/iPad.

I haven't been to Eastbourne for some years. Am hoping to go on Friday and was thinking of Beachy Head, however after reading the pros and cons here I am now undecided! Can anyone convince me of the best option? Given that I will have one day there I hoped to get some decent shots of both Lancs, the...

Re: Compatible inkjet cartridges

I use a continuous ink system, it involves having tanks of ink sat next to my printer with pipes leading from those tanks to the cartridges inside the printer, I print a lot of images mainly in A3+ size and my printing costs have been vastly reduced! Worth considering if you do do a lot of printing...

Re: Lens help needed

I have the 70-200 F4L non-is and the 300 F4l the results I'm now getting with both are, as I said, loads better. This is, perhaps, shown best when used on my 'spare camera', 450D. Previously I wasn't really using this much as the lower pixel count obviously gives a smaller image, theoretically poore...

Re: Canon 1000d error message

I think the answer lies in your question.... Auto mode, there are not many functions that can be selected therein. You need to be in one of the other modes such as AV, TV etc to select the functions.

Probably not an error at all :up:

Re: Northolt Nightshoot XVIa

Northolt events are akin to Steam Railway Photographic Charters - the opportunity to photograph kit in a unusual setting, often with rarer machines on show. You dont usually get much change out of 50 quid for one of those events so I reckon Phil, Lee and the guys do us a great deal. And for a good ...
