  1. Yes, I understand that view and veer towards it. However, I do take PU infringements very seriously because if you license a photo for personal use and then use it beyond the terms of the contract you've signed up to, then that's deliberate fraud, and I won't tolerate that. Alan
  2. I've had quite a few PU sales and it's a welcome addition to my income. So far (touch wood) I've not discovered an infringement, though I know others have. I do check them all online every now and then. Alan
  3. I've seen so many cautionary words about cheap replacement batteries that I always buy the manufacturers' own, even though my budget is limited. Alan
  4. The sole reason I bought mine was to have a camera I could slip into my pocket, which means that the Sony 16-50 is the only lens I can use with it. I did try an RX100 Mk1 first but that was nowhere near good enough for QC (secondhand so might not have been at its best) and also, with no viewfinder, I found that I just couldn't keep it steady while looking at the rear screen (I have the same problem with smartphones). My problem with the NEX might be that I'm too conditioned to crisp images from the 5D2, and it may be that some of the NEX pics I reject might get through QC, but I'm very protective of my QC record and I would rather not take any chances. Alan
  5. Serious use when it needs to pull out all the stops and produce guaranteed results. Alan

  7. To be honest I hardly use it these days. Whereas about 95% of my Canon images are good enough for Alamy, probably no more than 40% of the NEX ones are good enough without me biting my nails over the possibility of failure. I mostly use it now for personal pics. So although I've had it 5 years I've only taken 1800 pics with it. The batteries show no sign of deteriorating but since I don't use it much I often top up the charge every now and then even if it doesn't need it, so I can't really tell how it would perform in anger. Alan
  8. I'm still using 10-year-old batteries with my Canon 5D2 and they show no signs of failing. Alan
  9. The Kelpies do sell. I've licensed several here, including this one which has sold several times: Alan
  10. They're not if they're incidental to the main point of the image, but they're likely to be if they form a significant part of the composition. Alan
  11. Round here the goldfinches have taken over, and now have top billing. There is the occasional sparrow but I haven't seen a chaffinch or robin for three years, or a wren for five. Blackbirds are getting rarer, and very occasionally I hear a song thrush. Not long ago I was living in Wiltshire where I logged no fewer than 44 species in the garden over two years. Wish I was back there... Alan
  12. Well done Wim! My excuse is that the tourer wasn't listed on the MG Owners Club site, only the saloon. Alan
  13. Ah, OK. In that case I'm stumped because it doesn't match any of the known MG models. Maybe it's been doctored? Alan
