  • Posted on: Canon EOS R6 Review

    I have now taken over 7,000 images with the R6. The images I get are first class and match or exceed the images from my 5D Mk IVs using the same glass. I agree with the reviewer on most things but I have found one flaw with the camera. In a studio when using studio flash the EVF gives a very poor view of the subject which is rather annoying. Additionally when my model was dancing the camera failed to find focus on several occasions. The 5D Mk IVs didn't have this problem.
    The comments regarding video make no sense to me as someone who regularly takes video (With a dedicated video camera). I have seldom shot for more than 5 minutes per burst and the R6 will comfortably cope with that. If people are wanting to use it for creating video content for the internet, I would suggest it isn't intended for that. At a recent wedding I shot both stills and video and had no problems. This is a STILLS camera and the video is a mere bi product of the technology, albeit a very useful one.

  • Posted on: Affinity Photo 1.10 Software Review

    I have had Affinity from the very beginning. I originally got it so that I could evaluate it for my camera club. A number of members bought it (during one of the half price deals) so I learned to use it so that I could support them. I have the latest version and I have tried very hard to like it. It is a capable tool but is in no way a substitute for Photoshop. The lack of a file management tool is a real weakness and although it has many similar tools to Photoshop, many perform quite badly by comparison.
    I do recommend it for people that are only going to do editing of small numbers of pictures but as a replacement for Adobe photographers pack, it falls woefully short.

  • Posted on: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Full Review

    I have now been using the Mk IV for over 2 months and I have to say that I have found it to be an excellent camera. The dynamic range is much better, noise levels are better, focusing is improved in low light and the live view focusing is first class. I intended to use both this camera and my old 5D III but I instinctively go for the Mk IV, even if the MK II is sitting there ready to go with the right lens on. Is it worth the money? Well given the enjoyment I have had from it so far the answer is yes.

  • Posted on: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Full Review

    I'm an enthusiast photographer and I shoot various genres including, landscape, studio and sport. Have had every iteration of the 5D and the MkIV has all the things that I wished the MkIII had. I have been using it for a month and it is a superb camera. The pixel count is ideal as it doesn't give the problems that occur at the more rarefied levels. The camera has an increase in dynamic range, lower noise (particularly in the shadows), is fast enough for most sport photography and has improved weather sealing. Having had problems with a tilt screen in the past I wouldn't give one a thank you. I use the Wi Fi remote shooting from my smartphone which works very well.
    The layout follows the pattern as the MkIII and I have hardly had to refer to the manual to use the camera. The price is high, yes, but the performance across multiple genres is impressive. The camera is a true workhorse and a genuine jack of all trades and is master of most. We can expect to pay much more for many things in post Brexit Britain as the pound is at a 30 year low.
