  1. I'm sure this must have been discussed before, but new kit comes out .. I was wondering what bags / cases people use when they're out an about. In the past I had a rucksack type affair, which was good for the big lenses, but not much good on the beach, when you had to take it off, put it down, get sand everywhere etc when changing lenses. At the moment I have a Vanguard Heralder 33 which has some great features - rain cover, pockets for cards, money, built in tripod holder, top access. If it had some kind of dual straps so could wear it round the back as well as over the shoulder would be great. When it's fully loaded - DSLR, 3 lenses, laptop, tripod it doesn't half make a groove in your shoulder. regards Simon
  2. As a new Alamy contributor, I have a number of questions and I am learning as I go so let me thank each and every person who responded to my first query about discoverability. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a solid consensus. One would think that it would be to everyone's advantage to be able to understand "the system." Here's another conundrum. When I submitted my first sets of images, I got the distinct impression that several of my photos were declined because of the camera used to capture the image. In my book a good photo is a good photo whether or not the equipment was high end. I don't think that QC liked the fact that some of my shots were taken with a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS (bridge camera). Listed in their FAQ/Guidelines is the following statement: "We only accept images from DSLRs or equivalent. We don’t accept images from mobile phones." Wouldn't it seem that if all other technical qualities were met, that a shot taken with a bridge camera would be acceptable? Once I submitted those taken with my Nikon D3300 and Fuji X-T2, my images were approved. Have other contributors had similar experiences? Any thoughts?
  3. Hello, I just signed up today to be a contributor. Then, before uploading anything I thought I would just do a bit more reading about what's what... Now I'm worried that my camera might not be allowed or good enough. What I have is a Fuji Finepix S3300. It's 14 megapixels and I had been told (back when I bought it) that it was just like a dslr but more portable/compact. I'm wondering if that was not so much true, and just a way to sell me an expensive camera. I have photoshop, and so have spent the afternoon looking at some of my older pics at 100% -- and that was not as brilliant as I had hoped. I'm not at all sure of them anymore. Most of them were taken on auto settings though, so tomorrow I'm planning to take some new shots with manual Apeture control, decreased ISO, and increased sharp/hard, which I think might help. I'm seeing more noise and softness than there should be on all but maybe two pics in my files. Does anyone have any other ideas how to tweak up the quality? Or is it just wasting time trying to get something that will be up to snuff with this camera? I'm obviously not a pro, but I've always been pretty good with a camera -- composition, focus, depth of field, that sort of thing. Right now I'm out of work so I have the time to experiment and try to make this work. It would be great to be able to fine tune my images and have this work out as an income source, but I'm not sure... if my camera isn't good enough to get the quality needed I don't think I can afford a new one right now. Any tips and pointers most appreciated! Thanks, Tobey
  4. I enjoy shooting landscapes, wildlife and other subjects that frequently require a zoom. I already have a Canon EF 70-200mm L but it just isn't quite long enough. I'm currently considering the Canon EF 100-400L, the Sigma 150-500 or the new Tamron 150-600mm to pair with my Canon 5DM2. I'm especially keen to get the lens by Thanksgiving because I'll be travelling for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've already ordered the Tamron but it's on what is likely to be an extended back order. If you wanted a versatile zoom lens to go with a Canon 5DM2 what would you choose (and why)? Will all three give me excellent IQ? Should I reconsider my Tamron order? Edit: I guess Sigma is coming out with a new 150-600 sports zoom that sounds pretty nice. I guess the question is would it be worth twice as much as the Tamron if sports and flying birds aren't my primary subjects?

  6. Looking to get a new backpack style bag that will fit in with airline carry on sizes, particularly Ryanair. They say max size is: 55 X 40 X 20cm. What do you use and recommend? Thanks Phil
