  1. I doubt it. The images in that portfolio that have a location in the caption are from the Ukraine. wim
  2. No maybe just too much red meat. No mushrooms either. Not even champignons. Hmm, where's that Neanderthal emoji?😁 wim
  3. Well the answer is that it's not in your smartphone, but in the menu of the camera. If it's not in the menu of the camera, then your camera can probably accept apps. And you can upload smart remote. And get a smartphone. And then disable.. waidaminit.. 😁 wim
  4. As a result of this thread I have bought an open box Leofoto LS-324C complete with their BH-40 ball head locally. The head came with it, I hadn't planned buying it. πŸ˜‰ My RRS BH-55 is a bit overkill on the Leofoto. The tripod without head fits in my carry-on. So it's either my heaviest travel tripod or my lightest all-round one. As such it will replace my very unstable (but very versatile) Gitzo Explorer mk1. Was it in this thread where someone mentioned The Center Column? Anyway his findings and rankings were a great help. wim
  5. The newer cameras have already done away with them. Not for the better though - I frequently have to wrestle with the RX100 mk6 for ages to get the Wifi connection going with my phone. Usually the sun has gone down; the town lies 60 miles behind me and I have forgotten what I wanted to photograph in the first place. Like when I was at Shibuya Crossing with only my mk6 and could not get the wifi to work for about an hour. Aaaaarrrgh. If I had known that the Sony HQ was only 5 stops from there by metro, I would have gone there and not left until someone promised to commit seppuku. I do have a small radio remote, but not with me of course besides I like/need to see what I'm doing. And it's 2 extra items + cable in my bag/pocket. And extra batteries. And there's no hot/cold shoe on the RX of course, so there has to be some gaffer tape... Let's stop here, the first puffs of steam are coming from my ears already. And I kid you not: at exact this same moment the Gabrieli Consort explodes from my speakers... That must be a clear sign. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ wim
  6. From Sonyalpharumors: battery problems after new firmware. wim
  7. It probably is in the menu of the cameras that have come out after the in camera apps have been ditched. So my RX100 mk5 doesn't have it, nor has my A7R2, but my RX100 mk6 does have it. wim
  8. Many of those images have this line: This image could have imperfections as it’s either historical or reportage. All archival images bypass QC altogether. We have discussed funny images like this one here before. wim
  9. The Alamy Blog had this to say about it in 2017: https://www.alamy.com/blog/tips-for-photographing-private-property-and-museums wim
  10. I have uBlock Origin and using Firefox. No popups nor extra windows here. Even after disabling uBlock, still no windows. wim
  11. Oops I just shot a similar Netto (=Aldi type German discounter) sign. Maybe better to not upload it. Thomas, you can have all the sales! 😁 It's not just simple signs that go for that money though: I suspect the same distributor. Maybe not, it's $2 more. Worldwide bulk. wim
  12. MkVI or Mk6 or Mark VI or Mark 6 not MkV1 (but include the V1 for clients making the same mistake) Saloon or Standard Steel Saloon Big Bore (4566 cc - from the DVLA - vs 4,257cc) 4,566 cc 4.5 litre or 4.5 L or 4.5l or 4 1/2 etc etc. 278 cu in The Malin Head image from the rear shows it's not an R type. Don't forget to check AoA for Bentley. 1954 Bentley R Type B73YA (1954 chassis). This 4-door 4-light saloon was delivered in September 1954 to la SociΓ©tΓ© Franpar of Paris (France Soir newspaper) and registered 7742-CZ-75. It was registered OMB710 on its return to the UK. In 2004 it was owned in Switzerland by RREC member Dr. Heinz Wehrli. http://www.kda132.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/NZRRB11-5-1.pdf Why did I look into this? Because of the wedding photographer image. I do think Google uses OCR for Google images. After using Google Translate with live view for a while, I would be amazed if they didn't. Great wedding pix btw. wim
  13. I have that one for the NP-BX1's for the RX100. However I now use one of these. And I use the equivalent for the bigger batteries also. Recently I have used this one for the NP-BX1 as well and I have ordered one for myself. It looks like the original Sony charger for the A7 NP-FW50 batteries, but smaller. The inside looks similar too. I will do some more testing when I have all 5 lined up. Hmm maybe I should learn how to test batteries first. 😁 wim
  14. Aww. What a car! It's basically a Maserati by another name. I was still looking for an official race numbers list. My guess is that you have to do it in Italian. This one is by a Dutch photographer. His website says there will be Flickr albums, but they're not active yet. Somehow I cannot get the page to be translated into English. Both Chrome and Google Translate. Which is a shame, because the site is huge and a true treasure trove for classic car enthusiasts. They have a magazine in Dutch: AutoFocus. πŸ˜‰ They really should do an English version. Or at least put it together in a way that Google Translate can access the content. wim
  15. Mine are quite good at holding a charge. The bigger ones (NP-FW50) for the Nex and the A7 are really bad at holding a charge. At first I blamed the bodies, but they're just as bad just sitting in the bag. I was wondering if the chargers have anything to do with it. wim
  16. I agree with the lens IQ. The M6 lens is not as good as the 24-70 [eq] of the previous models. It's mainly at the widest end and a lot is being masked by some very clever computational pre-cooking of the RAW file. Which becomes apparent if you happen to view the file without the embedded profile being applied. Is this using the same profile? There have been a couple of changes over time: the default profile is now Adobe Color and default sharpening is higher. The other possibility is that you have saved your own settings to one or more of the profiles or presets. Have you tried resetting Camera Raw defaults? It's in the Presets tab under the settings button; the last item. wim
  17. #304 Evoli Aguado Humberto (Mex) Evoli Candiani Paloma (Mex) Mupa Jaguar XK140 OTS SE Roadster (1954) #344 (the large white 342 has been crossed out) #344 Boglioli Mario (I) Pezzia Enrica (I) Deutsche Bank, Osca MT4 1100 (1952) #351 Swallow Richard (GB) Swallow Fiona (GB) Deutsche Bank, MG A (1955) via: http://hjbrouwer.wixsite.com/njoy-media/2019-8-mm-menu (in dutch - but not too complicated) wim
  18. The ambulance is a 1957 Fiat 1100 according to a couple of microstock sites, which all have the same image of your vehicle. wim
  19. Or find the local Lidl. 🍺 https://www.lidl.ie/en/Suppliers-9705.htm https://www.lidl.ie/en/awards-beer.htm wim
  20. Hmm I thought that would be easy with those numbers. Here is the mille miglia 2019 lista partecipanti. However not so quick: there are no racing numbers, just the names of the drivers. Which is sufficient if you can read those at full size. Still weird: a list with no numbers. Maybe it's somewhere else. The list does include the year of construction though, which is very thoughtful. wim
  21. Great challenge! RC4R4N - Berlin Breitscheidplatz memorial at Christmas Market, Berlin City, for the12 victims of 2016 Weihnachtsmarkt terror attack. AM5KNA - Vietnam Veterans War Memorial in Washington DC. Silhouettes of visitors reflecting and merging with the names of the fallen. Bringing the past and present together. DX12J6 - Arlington Marine Corps War Memorial aka as the Iwo Jima Statue. wim
