  • Commented on Readers' Showcase: Dale Johnson article

    Excellent portfolio, a well travelled photographer, many superb images: great light and composition.

  • Absolutely superb. A prime example of what an imaginative and skilled individual can do with modest kit.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Colour Corrected Eagle
    I'd noticed that the screen display on my LX7 seemed to have a bluish tinge and there was an unfamilar symbol on the screen display. Yet, I still didn't realise that, somehow I'd set a non-standard White Balance. Eventually worked out the problem.  I used PSE11's   Remove Colour Cast, picked a black spot and 'hey presto'. Also sharpened with Topaz Detail 3.

  • Well, you've got to admire Sigma's bravery. They produce some great alternatives to the mainstream companies. This camera has a pretty narrow appeal. I hope they generate enough sales to keep in...

  • Great idea but for serious/ pros only at that price. Assuming there was an adapter for the 7-14mm, I think £200+ for a filter on a £900 lens is a wee bit OTT . However, the article prompts me to...

  • Fascinating, uses 3 mirrors http://www.lsst.org/files/docs/LSSToverview.pdf to gather the image and present it to the sensor array. The processing power and storage implications are non-trivial...

  • Good article. The cost of lenses, physical size and weight all increase with the size of the sensor. Certainly the law of diminishing returns applies here. If for use by a true Pro, to actually...

  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review preview

    Not a GX7 user but have several Pannys . It is not unusual to have geographic model differences - especially video. So, I suspect that 60P might be US models only.

  • If you already have an M43 body and want a fast wide, fast, kit lens the decision is now a little harder. Subject, of course, to seeing some solid proof that the LX100's lens is a s good as...

  • My guess is that service changes are inflight and, rather than bring the service down, DPR hope that most people will be unaffected and those that are will simply try again. 24/7 services, ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Light of Leon
    Cropped, mild PP, light in the centre of Leon, Spain.
    Placed 46th in the challenge. Cropped, mild PP, light in the centre of Leon, Spain.
  • Still need to see some hard evidence of the great IQ we all anticipate. However, if one views the LX100 as an M43 with a great lens thrown in, that happens to be fixed, then the price doesn't...

  • This is closest to the next LX Panny users were expecting IMO. It lacks EVF capability but an articulated screen can should overcome most bright light/reflection issues. I look froward to a proper...

  • Art using photographic images for base material. Interesting, unique and clever stuff.
