  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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 now or at least I think it is, an orange glow is coming from it anyway! So just wondered if anyone had any updates on this and any external charges in particular that folk use. Thought it would be handy as a carry around camera. Thanks in advance for any suggestions before I decide whether to keep it or not ! Carol
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Ah that would explain it I'll put it down to......having one of those days Many thanks folks.. Carol
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. ....... I might have a look also at the Sony MK1 - not sure what else is around so a bit more research me thinks. Carol
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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 weren't shooting wildlife.
