  1. Hello everyone. I just recently got started on Alamy and was wondering: do you think my Pentax Q7 has what it takes to meet Alalmy's quality criteria? I have taken plenty of pictures which I believe were great until I tried submitting them and having them rejected with a message that said "Sorry, but this camera doesn't produce images of high enough quality for our requirements". I have seen an amazing photographer whose work I like a lot; his name is Mark Phillips and has the same vibe that I wish I could express with my pictures. Anyways, I thought maybe it was a mat
  2. I'm looking to buy a Canon M3 to go with my Canon 77D. The blurb is pretty explicit about not using non-dslr cameras when submitting, but the M3 quality is good. Anyone know if these would be accepted? Cheers Mike
  3. I need some input from those of you shooting the Sony A7 mirrorless camera, if there are any on the forum. I currently use the Fuji X system, (X-T1 & X-E2). I primarily use the 18-55mm for everyday use and the 35mm f1.4 and 60mm f2.4 for close-up work. I love my Fuji's and the image quality they produce, but, I am having a problem with camera shake. This is accentuated by the fact the cameras are small and Fuji uses an APS-C sensor. I am coming from full frame Nikon. For close up shots with my Nikons I used the 105mm VRII lens. Fuji does not have OIS in any prime lens and the OIS
  4. I was thinking about fine art photography, large prints and medium format at the weekend. Then it struck me, MF mirrorless could be the way to go for several sound technical reasons: Gets rid of the huge mirror box and the vibrations from a big mirror. So the camera could be much more compact, easier to lay out and lighter. Would get away with a lighter tripod as well. MF not usually used for high-speed action photography, so AF speed and and EVF would be less of an issue. Especially if EVF was high resolution and fast as with the Fuji X-T1. Few are faster than 1-2 frames per second. Manual
  5. I've just got a Fuji XT1 and 18-55mm kit lens and am using Lightroom 5.6 for processing. I'm wondering what standard import settings people are using, particularly Clarity/Vibrance; & Capture sharpening. I've been playing about and I'm not convinced that I've got the ideal combo yet. My settings are usually; Clarity +20/Vibrance+16. Standard LR sharpening. These work great with the Canon 5DMKII and the Fuji X100, but seem a bit soft with the XT1. Also I see that Adobe do not have a lens profile for the 18 - 55mm Fuji, any thoughts re this? TIA Phil
  6. Given all the discussion on mirrorless cameras, fuji's etc, I thought I would post my blog on my recent experiences testing the X-T1 with a selection of lenses lenses... Warning - contains geekery and lovely images in equal measure ;-) http://www.julieedwardsphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/9/festival-no-6-without-a-mirror
  7. At the weekend I experimented with shooting a couple of sports events with my Fuji X-T1 and 55-200mm. The archery was OK but I did not have the reach (I did not have accreditation to go inside the competition area) but was poor to hopeless shooting powerboats. I used the morning practice sessions for just, to try the Fuji with the 55-200mm and with a MF Tamron 300mm f2.8 (and 1.4x & 2x converters). The latter works but I would have to work on my manual focus technique again, it also has significant purple fringing around highlights - a lot of that in the spray of powerboating. So it c
  8. Watch out for this gotcha! It caught me out - so a warning, just something to bear in mind. I was using a Fuji X-E1 and 18-55mm lens but it will probably be a risk with any mirrorless camera especially with wide-angle lenses that have a rear element that comes close to the sensor. I took some photographs on a misty morning and when I processed them I discovered large shadowy smudges down one side easily visible with the large areas of flat light grey. I thought it was dust (but looked a bit odd) or a mark on the sensor but I could not see it with magnification and cleaning achieved nothing
