  1. Odd Alamy Measures

    Two of those here here as well. No updates yet though.
  2. Portfolio Banner Picture

    As suggested elsewhere, the only solution would be a monochrome image.
  3. Images sold in January

    $$, RM, Worldwide, Editorial, Book, print and/or e-book. (The Langelinie Pavilion, designed by Eva & Nils Koppel, 1958, Copenhagen, Denmark.)
  4. Geared tripod head?

    When arriving in Denmark by boat or plane from a non-EU country, the limit is DKK 3.250 (around €435), so bringing a Hejnar adapter is no problem. I've heard about people whose bags were checked, but I've never experienced it myself.
  5. Geared tripod head?

    The only thing is when ordering things from from a non-EU country you risk having to pay an import fee (in addition to the import tax); at least that's happened a few times when I've ordered books from the US.
  6. Geared tripod head?

    Thanks for the offer. I've received it now; haven't had much time to use it yet though. Compared to my old ballhead Manfrotto, the 410's incredibly easy to adjust, but not quite as portable to say the least. I'll probably get the Hejnar adapter next time I'm in the US, as the plate that comes with the head is rather large and clunky.
  7. Geared tripod head?

    Thanks for your comments. I've ordered a 410 now.
  8. Geared tripod head?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I use a Manfrotto XPRO ball head now, which is OK for some things, but frustrating to use when you want to make precise adjustments as the camera always moves a little after you've locked the position and let go of the camera. I've looked at the Benro, though I didn't know about the Sunwayfoto head. They look OK, and I saw a couple of favourable mentions of the Benro head, but for various reasons I'm a little sceptical of buying stuff from Chinese companies. As for the plate, I saw that Hejnarphoto makes Arca Swiss adapters for Manfrotto heads, so at least upgrading is possible.
  9. Geared tripod head?

    Thanks for your reply. I suspect that the 405 is unnecessarily large for the camera I intend to use it with, a Canon 5D, so it's very likely that the 410 is the answer.
  10. I'm considering getting a geared tripod head, one that isn't too expensive (so no Arca Swiss yet). Any recommendations? I've looked at the Manfrotto 405 and 410 (the XPRO seems a little unstable). I've read a few negative things about the 410 – such as the threads quickly becoming worn. Does anyone here use it?
  11. Laptop

    If you're getting a MacBook Pro, I'd strongly advise you to get the latest model with the newest generation keyboard; earlier keyboards are prone to failure – see this article and this, for instance. I've had the keyboard replaced twice in my 2016 15" MBP; the first time when it was two months old.
  12. Commission change - James West comments

    Perhaps you can put a link on your Alamy portfolio page.

    There's no way to get around the compression artefacts, though, except perhaps by using a monochrome image.
  14. "Your Alamy portfolio page"

    That doesn't appear to be possible.
