  1. A friend of mine has used them many times and they have been excellent, I would not hesitate to use them and as said their prices are extremely competitive. Carol
  2. ....... I might have a look also at the Sony MK1 - not sure what else is around so a bit more research me thinks. Carol
  3. Allan I was surprised also as I had uploaded a few accidentally with another batch (think just 2 or 3) and didn't realise until they were in QC and fully expected the lot to fail. As I said I got it primarily for snorkelling well trying to anyway ! I think I'll also look at something smaller at some point for everyday stuff though I do like a viewfinder. Carol
  4. I have a Nikon AW120 which I got primarily for snorkelling, however it's fine for everyday use also though no viewfinder. Had images accepted on here also. It's handy to have with a 2.8 24-120mm, think there is a more recent version now.
  5. Strange the way it works as I seem to have sold more when I had about 200 images than now when I have a few more
  6. First time I've been on this thread so hope I'm getting this right. There's an image on my Amazing Species 2018 Calendar, September's image is of two black Rhinos credit FLPA/Alamy
  7. Keywording is very tedious and I'm not that confident with them. Hoping someone someday will devise a system so that keywords will be applied automatically - I like to dream
  8. Also been on the plan for about a year have always used PS never got on with Lightroom. That's a very useful link thank you Michael.
  9. Fixation are excellent they've got me out of trouble a few times but appreciate you being a long way away it may be more difficult for you. As said also good for sensor cleaning but again a train ride away for me to get there. Nikon are also good but probably take a bit longer, you leave your gear there, wait for them to send you a quote by email, accept it and wait for another email to say it's done, unless anything has changed of course.
  10. Helen, on Safari I've found it's the normal for folk to ask for money if you want to take their pictures, I normally just buy something cheapish from them. I now have a good collection of straw hats and colourful sarongs! Re: shooting on Caribbean beaches, I've not had a problem using a Nikon full frame with either a 28/300mm or 24/70, could be I wasn't fully dressed it was far too hot! If I was changing cameras I would definitely look at the Z6 if you are used to Nikons, horses for courses as they say ! I think a 200-400mm might attract a few comments on a Caribbean beach though if you we
  11. Some of mine keyworded yesterday not showing maybe will happen after 9 a.m. not sure what the the database gets updated but this was the case yesterday. No problems with QC very quick but find that uploading is much faster early morning UK time than later in the day.
  12. That's brilliant congratulations onwards and upwards !
  13. With optical there's no delay it's just there. Whilst the eye start function maybe he way to go for some, I feel it's just another bit that could go wrong. Let's face it there's enough to go wrong on any camera I know but if your electronic viewfinder packs up ?? On the plus side the batteries on Nikons are far superior to others I think and hopefully this will be the same with the new models. Carol
  14. I don't think using an FX lens will turn it into a DX but I could be wrong. Nikon are also bringing out a few new lenses one being 24-70 F4, think I will stick to my 24-70 2.8. Also again the new models have electronic viewfinders which I'm not that keen on. I will stick with what I've got but still interested to see one at some point. Also a lot of folk are complaining they have only one card slot.
  15. Yes I agree Richard. I remember back in the day when I had a Minolta SLR, it may have been the Dynax, it had eye-start a similar thing, although you had the option to turn the function off which I did, guess it was quite funky it it's day !
  16. Ooops I knew the date had an 8 in it - had it in mind for 8th September ah well never mind, I'll have a look when I go up there for sensor cleaning. As you say I can't imagine the weight being much different with existing Nikon lenses.
  17. I believe Fixation have a play day with these two in the next couple of weeks. I need a couple of sensor cleans which they are doing half price on that day so I guess it makes sense to take a peek ! I did try my friends Fuji a short while ago, impressed with the images but not sure I could get used to an electronic viewfinder, not sure if they new Nikons have this, guess I'll soon find out. Certainly wouldn't want to buy anymore lenses though. Carol
  18. Well I'm sure it was delicious to eat. For me for this image I probably wouldn't use the words abstract and background although I guess you could argue that the bake itself is abstract maybe. I have only one image using the word candy but it's candy floss. Carol
  19. Can't decide on a favourite, am happy with all my Nikons despite the weight ! Carol
