  1. I think you made the most of bad light and lack of reach here and it really goes to show that you don't always need massive heavy lenses i.e., last year I was lucky locally to get some nice shots of a Kingfisher in an urban situation a few in my port I think. At the time I was using a heavy 200-400mm handheld. It was so close I had to zoom out and the exif shows the focal length between 180 and 200mm, could have used my 70-200mm 2.8 ! You never can tell, good luck with shooting a few more. Carol
  2. What is also extremely frustrating is the fact that they keep our money in their account until it goes over $50 - I have at least 2 cups of reasonable coffee sitting in my account and I'm very thirsty!
  3. Doubt they have time to look at absolutely everything but as above they can probably tell from experience whether it was the photographer's intention to produce blur or not. I have some images where it was my intention to blur and no problem with these at all it's different from camera shake but anyway we don't know what the original poster's image was that failed and what it failed on.
  4. I think there is normally a reason given on the image that has failed i.e., soft or lacking in definition/camera shake etc., might be worth having another look.
  5. Congratulations both of you onwards and upwards....... Carol
  6. Hope they bring it back as I found it especially useful when typing names that were exceptionally long. Carol
  7. Interesting topic, I'm just wondering if the lady knows the difference between FX and DX and please do not take that the wrong way. I'm a Nikon user and yes they are bulky and I have small hands but because of the extra weight I find them easier to balance and yes I do go to they Gymn As MDM said there are plenty of reasonable DX Nikons around and good glass. For me I prefer FX and for years lugged around a 200-400mm F4 now that was heavy So FX/DX horses for courses personal choice I think. Good luck with whatever you get for your wife. A happy wife is a happy life so they say It also
  8. Paulette why not check out the Z6 and Z7, slightly lighter than the other Nikons and if you use Nikon lenses they will work fine. Carol
  9. Ah ha Martin that would explain it Carole, many thanks this one is most definitely faulty as when plugged it it turns blue then orange briefly then just goes off. I phoned the shop who offered to either replace or refund which is fair enough. It is wrapped up read to go back to them, I don't think I'll get another one from them just yet in case it's a faulty batch. For now I will use the USB connector and just be careful and if the cover does come off just cover it with some black electrical tape. A male friend of mine managed to open it quite easily yesterday, though I have lon
  10. Many thanks Martin, it did occur to me that when it put it in horizontal that it wasn't exactly a tight fit. However, no matter what I tried I didn't find a way to fit it in vertically, I'm obviously missing something here ?
  11. Hi Allan, no I've been out using it so the charge is way down to one bar/digit. Thought it was sufficiently low to warrant a charge ? You think it needs to be completely dead maybe? Carol
  12. Well the charger arrived this morning, plugged it in and it doesn't work. Took it apart and back together again, blue light comes on it flashes orange once and then just goes off, so I guess it's going back tomorrow, could be just a faulty one I guess
  13. Hi, many thanks Carole very helpful, I've just found the one you suggested from a reputable camera retailer here in the UK for about £35 so I'll probably get that one, thanks so much. This is such a great forum everyone is so helpful much appreciated. Carol
  14. Many thanks Edo, I also have a card reader I prefer to use card readers as opposed to plugging any camera in and having it on my desk. I will look for an external battery charger for this I think, I'm new to using Sony so it's all a bit of a learning curve but I'm sure I'll find one on the web somewhere. Enjoy your No. 6 - did this come with a charger ? Again thanks for the input, much appreciated. Carol
  15. Many thanks Paulette, I didn't open it fully either - apparently it's a common issue although I think later ones have some sort of slider, that's what the camera shop said anyway. Am just starting to set it up, it's quite alien to me
  16. Just found this old posting about the Sony USB connector. Just picked up a Sony RX100 and lo and behold taken ages to even work out how to open the flap to plug the USB lead in to charge the battery - naturally it helps when you actually remember to put the battery in. Anyway from what I've read on here, it seems like it's pretty normal for this little usb flap to be flimsy or I'm doing something wrong. There seems to be a tiny button on it but it didn't seem to slide either way when I tried and I tried pushing it. Not quite sure how I managed to get the thing open but anyway it's charging
  17. Thanks everyone, yes the D850 does indeed produce massive files, had a play with one the other day and when converted to jpeg it produced a massive 130MB ! Carol
  18. Hi all, am just wondering with a lot higher megapixel cameras available nowadays when is big too big image wise for here? i.e., if for example you had a d850 and used at maximum pixels, even when converted to jpeg the file would be pretty huge. I know size isn't everything so they say just wondering what folk to who use i.e., an 850 or 810 do, apologies in advance if this has been asked before, I think somewhere in this thread Fahd Khan has an 810 and doesn't crop just interested to know what others do. Thanks Carol
  19. Ha ha glad it's not just me, just re-read and I think it says....... should be going live before the end of the week, I guess we are getting ahead of ourselves
  20. Ah that would explain it I'll put it down to......having one of those days Many thanks folks.. Carol
  21. I must be missing something it all looks the same to me, also just had hassle signing in here, I'll have a look later to see if I see anything different Carol
