  • Posted on: The Basics Of Understanding RAW Files

    I tried this 'RAW' business in my Pentax K10D and honestly I can't see any difference !! I used the DNG 'Raw' and put it into 'FastStone IMage Viewer' as my PhotoShop 7 doesn't do RAW processing -- there was a pic of a young girl I took with bounce flash at her Birthday party and the face was over -exposed and even with RAW I could not get the detail back. In the Darkroom with FILM I have no probs getting detail into highlights that are a bit dense - I just burn them in with a hole in a piece of card or with my hands ---

    It still has the 1/180th fastest flash synch speed though doesn't it ? I do a lot of fill-in flash outdoors -- even on a Canon T90 I have on loan from a Camera Club member it has 1/250th second flash synch and so does the Nikon FE 2 and others.

    I suffered CONDENSATION on my latest trip to the Philippines July-August -- I ruined my Canon Video camera which wouldn't work until I got back to UK, then I got it under front element of my 24mm f2.8 Carl Zeiss Jena lens and under the rear element of my Pentax 28-70mm f4 SMC Pentax-FA lens and that is still there !

  • Posted on: Snap it

    yes :I too had to open a Yahoo and Flickr account then when I tried to upload a photo it would not work - there was no 'browse' button to find photos in my computer but there was a 'submit photo' thing in yellow which did not work ! Is this GENUINE ?

    I'd be scared to take it out in case it got rain on it and all the 'Gold' went Green !

  • Posted on: Pentax release statement concerning the end of its medium format film cameras in the UK

    I bought some illegal mercury PX625 batteries off a stallholder in Chelmsford Market (nudge,nudge, wink, wink. say no more etc). Maybe they will sell 'illegal Pentax 6x7's' there now!

    I saw these advertised at the February 'Focus' show but there were NO SAMPLE PRINTS from the films on show ! Pity, not EVERYONE wants 'digital' !

    Good news;now I hope they will bring out some more surfaces for their Multigrade paper. I miss a nice 'lustre'; the 'Pearl'is a bit boring and I find it leaves drying marks very easily.

    You should go in for your RPS Fellowship with your photos -mind you, the SUBS get DEARER the more qualifications you get as I know from when I got my Associateship for Scientific Applications in 1970!(TAX DEDUCTIBLE though if you're a pro)

    You asked "what do you think of my night shots" - well, they are excellent, taken at just the right time when there is a little tone in the sky. Regards, Peter.

    Excellent work in your portfolio which would grace any exhibition/club competiton. Your natural history shots would give our Andrew Gell a run for his money at Brentwood Photo. Club and he's a well known safari/wild-life photographer who learnt ALL his craft from member ship of the club.
