A Note of Thanks

I would like to publish a note of thanks to the security officers at Canary Wharf in London. Yesterday I visited London with a couple of friends as tourists to take pictures. One of our locations was Docklands with the intention of photographing some of the icon architecture including Canary Wharf. Waiting for our friend … Continue reading A Note of Thanks

I have no will power

A couple of weeks back I was out with my friend Steve (who is also an Olympus EM5 owner) and we were discussing just how good this camera is. At the time we agreed that we didn’t want for anything so would stop all this chasing around after new kit and just work with what … Continue reading I have no will power

RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 2

Continued... Sensor quality – Here I would say I am interested in producing natural colours and smooth images (free from noise). The LX7 is better than the LX5 but neither can touch the Sony. The Sony has smooth images with very limited noise that doesn’t get exaggerated when the images are processed. The colours from … Continue reading RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 2

RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 1

It’s funny how the same questions keep coming up in photography and this is one of them. Which is the better camera the RX100 or the LX5/LX7? I see people arguing on forums, it comes up as a search term in the traffic stats for this sight and I even receive emails asking this. I … Continue reading RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 1

Friday Image 006

In all my dashing around today I almost forgot to post my Friday image. I quite like the discipline of trying to create and post an image a week. I know others seem to manage one or more a day but I have too much else on to be able to make such a commitment. … Continue reading Friday Image 006

The Friday Image 005

I missed sharing my Friday Image over the Christmas and New Year break so here is the first one of the New Year. I shot this image back in March last year on a trip to San Francisco. I don’t know the name of this building and the only location details I have are that … Continue reading The Friday Image 005

Return of the LX

Regular readers may recall my decision a few months back to sell the Panasonic LX5, as I wasn't using the camera. Most of the time when I needed a compact camera I was taking the Sony RX100 which is a great little camera and much more compact than the LX5 (when the filter adapter was … Continue reading Return of the LX

Broken Link in Silver Efex Book

I was recently contacted by someone who had purchased my Nik Silver Efex book but was having problems. I mention in the book that Nik provide a number of useful presets on their site which are free to download. These include a good Landscape preset and a faux infrared preset which is quite dramatic. There … Continue reading Broken Link in Silver Efex Book

The Lens Goes Back

I recently blogged about my new lens, the new Panasonic 14-140. I wanted the lens so that I didn't have to keep changing lenses (between my 14-45 and 45-200) when out walking in the hills. The only problem I have found is that I don't trust the 14-140 given the results I have had. In … Continue reading The Lens Goes Back

A new lens in the bag

To be totally honest, it’s actually two new lenses in the bag. The first is a 14mm prime which I picked up very cheaply. It was originally part of a Panasonic G series camera kit, but was sold separately having never been used (there are a lot of these on the market at present). The … Continue reading A new lens in the bag
