Actually, I can get all of those by half-inching my wife's Sony Hwhatever90v and putting a protector on the LCD. All that's missing is the weather-proofing.

It's £11,000 with lens so you may need to do more with them than just sleep.

Ok I hate canon compact pop out lenses.  Have two that I have taken apart and have broken plastic cogs.

Are they the ones that give the E18 error message when they jam?

(ETA Ahh yes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E18_error)

My first IXUS 70 did this after 6 weeks and was replaced by the supplier (Amazon).

The replacement is still going strong after 9.9 years.

Month 1:
- You need a screen protector on that
- I haven't got one

Month 2:
- You need a screen protector on that or it'll get scratched
- I haven't got one
...
...
Month 10:
- You need a screen protector on that or it'll get scratched
- It's already scratched.

Some REALLY good wedding photos in this lot https://www.boredpanda.com/best-wedding-photos-2017-fearless-awards/

Personally the ones that aren't staged are more my fave, but there are good examples of both types

Friends and family:
If you are blessed with a stereotypical Jewish nose, this will be exaggerated when you post phone selfies.

Short focal length lenses being unflattering is neither news nor rocket science.

I find it hard to 'like' some things on BookFace!

Dear misbegotten Adobe, why the hell can't your so-called on-line help simply list every Photoshop menu item and then provide detailed instructions for every feature of every tool available under that item?  That's what computer professionals have been doing since the 1940s.

Instead we have either to muddle through your stuff without a guiding hand, wade for an hour through your mish-mash of poor anticipation of what we ought to want to be doing, or undergo your "helpful" videos in the hope that something helpful will accidentally emerge. Or have a gander on YouTube to find out if some helpful soul has already supplied what you were too fucking lazy to.

You are twats, and I pee in your porridge.

go to https://www.thetrainline.com/ if you get the background a picture of a woman with a camera... hasn't it been flipped?!... isn't the film winder on the wrong side - shouldn't it be on the right? Or is that how they have them in europe/USA? If not I might complain. :)
Just don't think about it too much.

Horizontally flipped - to fit the page layout which places the form at screen left. As you say the winder and shutter release are on the left. There's also some blotchiness on the rucksack - where they've cloned out the branding.

Just been uploading some of my old 360x180 degree panoramas to 360cities.net!

https://www.360cities.net/image/charlestown-harbour-fife-scotland  :thumbsup:]

Sadly my new Canon 750D + Canon 10-18mm kit lens is to big a combination for my trusty Nodal Ninja 3 panoramic head.  And the larger Nodal Ninja 6 is a wee bit too pricey a £450 or thereabouts....

However there is a Nodal Ninja clone on Amazon, for £150 or so (which a friend at my camera club bought, and is pleased with). So a new year treat for myself!  :)

Just unearthed the Oly EP-3 I bought in a 2013 brain-fart moment.  Easily the most awful camera I have ever owned - crappy autofocus, crappy image quality and, when I put it up for sale on line, totally unsellable. Got the battery on charge for form's sake, but I don't reckon it'll be seeing much other than the inside of a cupboard for the next five years.

Helped a colleague scan some cyanotypes today. Really nice.

Zoom in


On cold pressed watercolour paper. Stunning in the hand. The leaf is quite large, about 15cm long.
Zoomed scan is 4800dpi scan. The top one is 240dpi (downres from 2400 dpi scan)

Actually unconnected with the previous post, I'm re-evaluating all subs I pay, Adobe CC is one of them. I pay annual sub, paid monthly, I suspect that's a common way

Online chat:
I'd like to cancel my sub
agent: why?
Because I don't get value from it, I prefer a software purchase which I upgrade when I want the new features or support.
agent: would you like our special offer? Would that help? Three months free
So my current sub ends in July, that would mean it ends in Oct, what would my additional commitment be?
agent: nothing
So  come October I'm as free to cancel?
agent: Yes. Would you like to do it?
OK then, I'll have your special offer (and make a mark on my Calendar for September)

That is one weird special offer, but anyone else with a CC sub might like to try it.

Just noticed that it's 10 years this month that I bought my first Panasonic camera, a TZ3. Didn't much like it at first because of low-light muck, but soon found it excellent on bike trips. Daughter has it now, unless she's lost it.
