Here's a bit of a laff.  I have a Nikon D600 and a Nikon V1. They both take the same type of battery, an EN-EL15.  A couple of days ago I recharged the battery from the V1 and put it back: the V1 then said "this battery has reached the end of its useful life and can no longer be used in this camera".  But in the D600 it still shows a full charge - and after shooting a time-lapse 25' long with AF & built-in flash every 5", it's showing 80% capacity, assuming that the blob scale in the control panel is linear and not borrowed from a Morris Minor.

I reckon that merits a medium-long Hmm...

I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Anyone know where I put the 67mm polarising filter for my Canon?  All this beautiful sunshine needs  a PL filter.......

42 years ago I graduated with a degree in photographic science, so I was somewhat embarrassed to discover something moderately fundamental that I'm sure I should have known about.
If you stick a close up lens on a long focus lens you can get closer (effectively, IYSWIM) than you can with the close up lens on a short focus lens. Since the closest focus of a long focus lens is always further away than that of a similar shorter focus one this seems somewhat counter-intuitive. At least, it does to me. 42 years obviously scrambles the brain cells. If I thought really hard and drew some ray diagrams I could probably prove it but ICBA.
There's no vibrations, but wait.
