  1. I have one and use it a lot with a 5DII...very sharp even at f4...however I try to shoot a 1/400+ at long end. However, 700USD doesn't seem like such a great deal, here I can get it new for 550Euros = 603USD! Phil
  2. After leaving college in the mid 80's I worked as a freelance assistant. The first time I worked with a still life photographer shooting 5x4 trannies I loaded the film back to front. Fortunately a test shot came back with a rather unusual colour cast and alerted us to the problem before shooting the rest of the film! Strangely he never employed me again Phil
  3. Have you not seen the Eurozone news lately Seems it's one way for the rich and another for the rest...Thats another constant
  4. Taxes varies from country to country...only constant is that we gotta pay 'em

  6. Every 5 years in Garachico, Tenerife, on the first Saturday in August there is a massive fireworks display to commemorate the volcano that destroyed the port. Above photos from 2010's celebration. Next celebration 1st August 2015. Phil
  7. Velly good! Love the kanye west shots Phil
  8. https://books.google.es/books?isbn=0241236207 A few Alamy photographers in this...Sale not yet reported, book published beginning of June. Phil
  9. I leave it as default and not had any problems with RAW... I think the Alamy advise is re Output sharpening, and the default in ACR is effectively Capture sharpening, needed for RAW files. Phil I've noticed that the default RAW sharpening gives a very bad stippling effect at high ISO even though the image is intrinsically sharper. I haven't solved that one yet. I haven't seen that with RAW files...I'm shooting Canon 5D MkII and Fuji XT1 & X100, have successfully used all up to 1600ISO and the 5D & XT1 to 3200ISO.

  14. Been down that road, and a few side roads as well Printer deader than a Monty Python parrot New HP installed, cheaper to run than the old Canon, output good enough as any serious photo printing gets outsourced Mainly being used for general paperwork. Phil
  15. Printer officially deceased Anyone use Canon 6, black(2), cyan, magenta, yellow, and 3e black, cartridges? Going cheap Phil
  16. Only in Scotland...You take the highway and I'll take the .......
  17. I recently upgraded to Yosemite on my iMac and have just discovered a problem with printing from Photoshop and Lightroom... Printer is a Canon ip5000, and it works ok with adobe reader, open office, safari.... Tried printing today from Photoshop and it took it's usual slow time but put out a complete blank paper, tried with lightroom, same result. Have checked all the utility stuff, printed tests ok, printed from other applications ok. Anybody got any clues as to what might be happening... TIA Phil
  18. Interesting...I've been told a couple of times that I'm not allowed to take photos; once as I was leaving a plane(steps) and turned back to shoot the nose, and, once on board a crew member said I could only take photos of my traveling companion. Before and since I've taken lots, but now always use my little Fuji and am careful not to point it obviously at cabin crew! Phil
  19. The sound of silence! Talking to the gods! Red for danger! Ok that's my 3 for this one... Phil
  20. Open your finder(MAC) find the folder, drag & drop into Filezilla, at top menu bar click TRANSFER>>>PROCESS QUEUE Phil, I tried your directions but I guess my brain just can't comprehend. I found my folder in Finder, but there are several spaces on Filzilla. Which space to drag into?? I did get it to drag in one area, but then I could not find the Transfer>Process Queue at the top. I kind of thought I did, looking at all those tiny icons, and clicked on one of them, and my folder disappeared from the box I'd dragged it into and it looked like I was uploading some files from my HD, not the images. Then a lot of red lines saying failure showed in the action. So I closed everything out and uploaded the old way. I'm sorry, you tried. I was standing behind a tree when technical smarts were awarded. and II only stepped out for the creative bits to come my way. Betty Hi Betty, Sorry to hear your troubles! Drag files into large empty area at the bottom section of the Filezilla box. By Top Menu Bar, I meant at the top of your screen, not the Filezila box..... Also, had you entered Host/Username/Password details ok ? Also, just did a quick Youtube search and there are loads of video tutorials on there, maybe a look at one of them may help. Good luck Phil
  21. Have sold 3 church photos in 6 years...2 ruins, 1 still working...none particularly famous. Guess they just happened to suit the clients needs Phil
