  1. I used fixation a couple of years ago to do some repairs - can't fault them, and would certainly recommend them to others. Martin
  2. I echo the sentiments of others about the lack of zooms - they've fallen flat after a really good run of months, which perhaps makes it more noticeable. Martin www.windmillskies.com
  3. Me too. I've been trying on and off for a couple of hours - getting the red upload failed message. Martin www.windillskies.com
  4. Long way to go on the positive reviews front, but can't argue against 100% royalties. Even with my drop in the ocean sized portfolio I get regular zooms and sales. What reading others posts has done is made me really think about the image and the key wording behind it-so yes there's an element of learning from others mistakes, but isn't that what forums are for as well? martin
  5. SShep - Thanks for finding the train tickets again - that's twice in 6 weeks that this image has been used in The Guardian. Martin
  6. Too right it's a lot of work - but so rewarding (and I don't have as many images as many others). As to whether images should be deleted I'm mindful to leave them at the moment. Martin www.windmillskies.com
  7. Much the same - plenty of zooms, but not much in the way of sales - a couple of low prices. At least with my still small collection things get noticed in the 60+million so I must be doing something right. Martin
  8. Thanks for all the replies, lots to go on. I was thinking about a 700 last night, but the 300 is another to consider. I need to go back and have a look at the 7200 again - lots to think about. Thanks again for taking the time to respond. Martin
  9. Morning all I have a dilemma, my D200 body is on its way out! I have 2 good lenses a 14-24f4 Dx and a 24-120f4 Fx - and a limited budget with which to play with. Whilst I'd love the latest D500 or 750, I have at the present moment to be realistic about what to get. I shoot mainly landscapes, architecture and want to retain a walkabout ability. I don't really need high ISO, video or rapid fire FPS. I've been looking at the 610 and 7200 but I remain unconvinced by the build quality - the joys of having a mag alloy body for so many years! I've thought about selling the 14-24 and switching to FF completely. What would people suggest? Are the 610 and 7200 better built than I think. Thanks for any thoughts, got the outlaws coming in 20 mins- no idea if I'll get chance to look again before this evening. Martin
  10. Hi All May be I'm being simple - but how do you manage to trace an image, other than through pot luck? I don't as yet have a big collection, and regularly get zooms which don't translate into sales - I know that this isn't always the case, but thought I'd try to search for the images that I know haven't had recognised sales. I once found a thumbnail sized image of mine in a well known, now defunct Sunday paper, and chased them successfully, but it was just luck that I saw it. Any help always appreciated. Thanks Martin www.windmillskies.com
  11. Hi Joe Another tick for FIxation from a NIkon user perspective. I emailed them after dropping a lenses and breaking the mount- as I was going to be in London for a day they did a "while you wait" service which was great.Regards Martin www.windmillskies.com
