  1. Lucky for me but not the owner, I’d like to say I planned on catching the windscreen blowing out but......
  2. Found at work a few weeks back whilst mapping out environmental plots
  3. Yes. I’ve had one regarding several of my images. All were taken from the parkland around the house but none were from anywhere a ticket was required and I had walked in rather than parking in the ticketed car parks. I’m a little bit irritated to put it mildly. Presumably we have no real choice but to go along with it, really, really frustrating! Edit.. just noticed these images were showing as views in measures yesterday as well as on several other occasions recently so I’m guessing that was likely Chatsworth Estate checking up 😆
  4. Surely if the viewer/searcher had given up and gone home before reaching page 150 (or wherever the other images were lurking) it wouldn’t show up in measures. I’ve always assumed that they would only show if the page the image was on happened to be visited (ie if one came in on page one and the next was on page 12 but the client only continued looking as far as 11 only the first would appear in measures)
  5. I have quite a lot of metal work holding my spine together as well as an implanted neuro-stimulator that has some interesting wiring leading from my waist up in to my spine between my shoulders. After my last set of x-rays I asked if I could take a picture of the results but the consultant declined my request due to it being a relatively new type of implant and the fact it was a competitive field of research
  6. Not sure whether this is a bad thing or if it’s good that I’ve not noticed. I’ve been selected to take part in the ICL COVID-19 antibody test. The kit came in the post this week so I took it tonight and after 10mins when the result was visible it was positive for the IgM antibody which if it’s right (which is by no means certain) indicates that I’ve had COVID and relatively recently. I had what I thought was a mild cold about a month ago and have developed an occasional lingering but nagging cough since and never thought anything of it, the only real plus is in my line of work I don’t particu
  7. We’ve escaped for a couple of nights away from home for the first time this year and walking near Reed beds in North Norfolk I’ve just heard a Bittern booming in the distance :)
  8. That’s a landranger map rather than the pathfinder range that Allan was looking for. The difference is that whilst the landranger is 1:50000 the pathfinder is 1:25000 scale which is much more useful depending on your intended usage ( 1:25000 is more helpful for more accurate work ie local walks and geology etc). Both sets are a dream for boring folks like me that can sit and look at maps all day long but the different scales do suit different needs
  9. Bad thing today... my daughter’s just had her first full week back at school since lockdown began and now today we’ve been notified that there’s a case of Covid in her “bubble”. Back to lockdown it is then 😔
  10. +1 to Steve’s comments. I moved to Sony about 3 months ago and purchased this as my first lens. I honestly can’t fault it at as a walk around lens that covers the focal range that I use for probably 95% of my photography
  11. It’s up to 13.1.2 now if I remember rightly and there have been quite a few changes (in the full version at least)
  12. When you go to the lens correction tab what does it show as the profile, generic or manufacturer profile? For my 100mkiii it shows manufacturer profile even though if you dig deeper it’s not listed. It is definitely applying the correction and the distortion slider sits at 100 reduce this and it shows the original capture. Apologies if that was a bit of a ramble but replying between jobs at work
  13. One thing strikes me about this effect, as someone who wears sunglasses a lot (I’m on meds that make me more susceptible to cataracts) the artefacts seen here seem vaguely reminiscent of some of the patterns you occasionally see on tempered glass when looking through polarised lenses. The fact that rotating the filter can influence the impact would seem to indicate that some sort of polarisation effect could be at play. I haven’t had chance to read any of the linked articles or research the issue in any way shape or form but it may be a possibility (or maybe not) 🤔
  14. I know this is a bit off topic but I actually quite like having Boston listed as my place of birth on my passport even though I’ve never lived there. It’s amusing when travelling how many people assume I’m dual nationality as a result
  15. Ok for me, only one sale which was personal use via an affiliate so could have been better. Zooms are holding up nicely as is CTR at 0.94
