    One of these rainsleeves takes up such a small amount of room in your camera bag...
    ...or even your pocket...It'd be daft NOT to carry one.

  • Posted on: Peak Design Capture Camera Clip Review

    I carry my Nikon D7000 with atatched 24-300 VR lens in a bag I bought from Halfords.
    It clips onto a special bracket on my bike handlebars and clips off when I get there.
    The clip stays permanently on my bike and the bag is carried effortlessly over my shouder.
    ....the bag cost me £10...I much prefer it to the "camera clip"

  • Posted on: 15 Essential Zoo Photography Tips

    Reluctant as I am to think I can teach PB anything about photography:

    ...It is not always necessary or even possible to get close to the wire.
    I speak from a great deal of zoo photography...perhaps even more than Pete himself Smile

    I find that the most important thing is to have a medium zoom "wide open" then focus on your subject through the bars...don't worry if you cannot get close to the wire.
    If you pick up the wire...re-focus and re-focus again and again ...keep trying.

    Granted a lot depends on where the light is coming from but if the light is right and you keep trying you will often lose the wire completely.

  • Posted on: Epson Stylus Photo PX660 Printer Review

    For years I used an Epson photo, R200 printer with stunning results useing 3rd party inks, but it finally packed up and having read so many good things about Canon I bought the iP3600.

    After the first print I regretted the move away from Epson, the Canon is not a patch on my Epson.

    Quote:I welcomed the opportunity to reassure all those concerned with this issue that we have no intention of Section 44 or Section 58A being used to stop ordinary people taking photos or to curtail legitimate journalistic activity.

  • Posted on: ePz Member Challenge - Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR

    I found this editorial extremely interesting, perhaps more'so because Chester zoo is one of my stamping grounds and I visit some 2 or 3 times a month.

    If the Finepix HS10, due for release in April, had not been announced I could have been tempted with thS200EXR.

    ..however I will almost certainly get the HS10 and while this is not a foregone conclusion, if I find that I can get adequate quality shots I shall sell my SLR and lenses....I'm never 'gonna be one of the great photographers anyway.

    I rarely drive a car, prefering to travel by bike and despite what some of these youngsters say, for me carrying a heavy camera and lens in not easy and tends to spoil the day.
