  1. I've had an Olympus Tough and it is probably the best of the compacts as I think it's the only one with RAW. Changed to the Nikon AW 1 to step up the quality. I'm now thinking of a cheap, older, s/h large sensor compact ( RX100 or a Canon G something) combined with drybags as it's mainly for sea-kayak photos rather than actual submersion - ie will produce decent pictures and hopefully will survive a while but I won't be devastated if I kill it.
  2. Every so often - ie when I break the last one - I ask the same question - are there any good waterproof cameras available ? Last time the best I could come up with was a used Nikon AW 1 which has been ok for a couple of years but has now packed in. There doesn't seem to be any of these on the s/h market at the moment and I can only see the usual selection of compacts with fairly small sensors. I'm always surprised that nobody thinks there would be a market for a decent quality tough camera - especially since the boom in everything connected to adventure sports.
  3. Yes, I stood on the brakes and crunched into reverse gear as I sped past my name. Thanks for spotting
  4. To provide other contributors with a warm feeling and a modicum of hope
  5. Betty, it was your use of the phrase "fairy dust" when discussing this lens a few years ago that made me want one ! I was a bit concerned about the noise because I've just had to return a s/h one for a refund as it arrived having fairly serious damage. The concensus is, as you say, that the noise is standard. I've taken it out once and it's already produced some of the most pleasing images I've had for a while. Fairy dust !
  6. I've just bought a s/h Fuji 50-140 and I'd like to ask other owners a question.. I can hear a wooshing noise which I assumed was the OIS but I still hear the same sound when I switch the OIS off - is yours the same ? I did read that IOS is never really 'off', it's just in a different mode, so maybe that explains it. Geoff
  7. A few Alamy pic.s of wintery scenes in the Dec issue of Woman and Home, inc one of mine. Sorry can't furnish you with any more specific - or indeed useful - details !
  8. Thanks Mick, I've emailed them. Digitalab were an additional £5 per 6"x9" to mount ! I know it's a faff but....
  9. Thanks Bryan. I'm finding that the actual print can be quite cheap but that mounting it on to eg a thin card is the pricey bit - eg nearly £4 per 6x9 at Peak Imaging. It would make the finishing and presentation much easier if the prints were either mounted or printed directly onto a thicker medium as it's a messy, fiddly process mounting piles of prints at home. Geoff
  10. Cheers Richard, I've emailed them with a couple of questions (Photobox, as mentioned above, don't do bulk discounts on prints - despite offering it on the website) Geoff
  11. Thanks Keith, I see they offer bulk discounts. I've asked for prices
  12. I wonder if anyone has a recommendation for a printer ? I use Loxley for my 'proper' individual prints but I'm looking for somewhere that can print acceptable quality prints of 6"x9" / A4 at a good price in quantities of eg 50 or 100 per image. I currently sell greetings cards through various local outlets and am wanting to produce an affordable mounted but un-framed print for re-sale. Ta very much Geoff
  13. Many thanks SShep - a front cover and another one inside. The question is would the combined fee justify buying a copy ?
  14. Update to the update... I've had a reply to the effect that "we were inundated with people wanting to take up the offer, presumably at those rates, so we don't need you or your bolshy re-negotiation bol***ks, but have a good day"
  15. Update ....I replied expressing my interest and a .modicum of enthusiasm but questioning the rates and asking about rights, image rights etc. And......nowt ! I imagine my reply was metaphoricaly screwed up and tossed into the bin.
