  1. 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
  2. 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 😔
  3. +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
  4. 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)
  5. 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
  6. 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) 🤔
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. This dropped in today as a personal use which seemed a bit odd to me. Affiliate Sale; Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Personal use ; Media: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home use ; Start: 21-July-2020 ; End: 21-July-2025 ; Additional Details: Personal prints, cards and gifts, or reference for artists. Non-commercial use only, not for resale.
  10. It’s been pretty good for me. Two sales for $150 gross (bringing my total here up to five) although one of those was through a distributor. CTR at 1.31
  11. It’s very rare that I manage to upload more than 2-3 images at a time without having to start over again. I assume that, in my case at least, it’s down to rural broadband speeds 😔
  12. This one dropped in this morning Country: Germany ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Television (editorial) ; Print run: up to 1 transmission ; Placement: Use within body of show ; Start: 01-May-2020 ; End: 01-May-2021 ; Additional Details: Germany, Television (editorial), The royalties breakdown seemed a bit odd to me though RM exclusive $67.02, deductions $46.92, net due $20.10? I’m guessing that means it’s through a distributor. Oh well a sales a sale Edit- Not quite sure why there’s no Alamy watermark showing? Re-edit - Watermark should be there now
  13. My fourth sale’s just dropped in, high $$ exclusive - Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Marketing package ; Start: 12-June-2020 ; Duration: In perpetuity ; Additional Details: Use in marketing materials for a single campaign, worldwide (excludes paid-for advertising).
  14. Looks like I’d better go back and change a couple of mine as well then. Thanks Allan
  15. There’s some very interest images there but I’m pretty sure you’ll find that image 0402IDM.jpg is of Lincoln Cathedral taken from Castle Square rather than York
  16. That’s a coincidence. We’ve got friends that live in Barkston and my wife used to run the toddler group there a while back
  17. Congrats on the move and welcome to Lincolnshire From what I’ve read it sounds like we’re practically neighbours so hello from almost Grantham / Sleaford 👋
  18. I suspect if you go in to the lens correction area and turn off hide distorted area you’ll find Capture One has cropped your area slightly
  19. I’m certainly shooting an awful lot less down to the simple fact that my wife and I are both still working flat out which we’re having to juggle with home schooling a primary age child and look after a 3 year old. As you can probably imagine it doesn’t leave a lot of time for much else
  20. I suppose you could argue the correct size/crop is what ever suits the picture the best but the standard for APS-C is 3:2. I must say recently though, I’ve been using 16:9 a lot more especially for landscapes
  21. No sales but more disappointingly in a way is that it’s the first month since last July (3 months after I started) that I didn’t have a single zoom To be fair it’s not exactly unexpected and given the current situation it’s not really the worst thing that could happen. Onwards and upwards:)
  22. Annoyingly we’re also struggling to find flour. What is frustrating is that we have about 850 tons of milling wheat in the grain store but no way to grind it down 😠
  23. It sounds like you'd love the Fuji range of cameras. I have the XT3 and with physical knobs to set ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation as well as a good old fashioned aperture ring on most lens' it feels very reminiscent of an old 35mm SLR. It was one of the main reasons I came away from Canon and think it's possible even more analogue than my old faithful Pentax ME super that I learnt on back in my early teens. It certainly brings back a lot of fun to photography
  24. It almost looks like London Plane (Plantus x hispanica) to me but the leaves aren’t developed enough for me to be sure as it’s not a tree we get particularly locally:)
