    motorised sliders

    Motorised sliders... What are folks using? Performance? Cost? Portability? Ease of set up? Ease of programming? Approaching from a timelapse perspective, basic linear movements with ramping through to rotating tilting heads on moving camera platform. Some seem ludicrously expensive, others...

    That awful moment: My wife (or partner) is better than me...

    I've spent years reading books, watching tutorials, walking round galleries, trying the latest softwares, gadgets, gizmos, expensive lenses etc... I lend my wife my very old 10D, a 430EX flashgun, talk to her a tiny bit about focus lock, exposure lock, and using AE shift to balance E-TTL flash...

    XC10, XF series and random rumblings.

    Just spent a day shooting with an XF300. Brought back memories of my old z1 and my even older XL1... Just ingesting the footage and it's not bad at all... just a bit video... down to the 1/3" chips of course. The flexibility and speed of operation, the sensible and sorted audio, and a decent...

    Camera selection for wedding

    Taking a camera to a wedding tomorrow (sorry for the short notice) I just wondered, from my available kit what you would take.. It's going to be a fairly long day, so compactness is a factor. I wasn't sure whether just to take my powershot sx230, which would be adequate for the outdoor parts...

    Magic Lantern manual colour temperature

    Hi ML users. I'm shooting a couple of interviews in a large factory building lit by horrible overhead sodium bulbs. I'm going to filter my tungsten lights to try and get close to the sodium as possible so that the subject looks fairly well matched with the ambient lights. I'm going to use...

    Jane Bown, RIP

    One of the people whose work inspired me to take up photography passed away today, well known in the UK, this may be something of a late introduction to international readers. A modest lady with a modest technique and very modest equipment by contemporary standards, her style and rapport with...

    So, Yongnuo replica lenses....

    Anybody else morbidly curious? The 50mm f1.8 is so cheap that it's almost worth a punt to see how bad (or otherwise) it could possibly be.... The model it's cloning, is for some of it's range at least, the best canon 50mm in some performance regards, this clone adds an extra couple of aperture...
