Terrific reflections in the pic. Look forward to the report of the trip Martin.
Martin - it is good for the soul to get out and about - I enjoyed my trip.Look forward to the report.Mark
Alan it was a fantastic sight this morning. I wish I had a DSLR with me. Would have really got some great shots then. Mark thanks. It was a short trip.
I know how you feel, Martin. Now that I'm medically cleared and won't have to have my foot operated on...I really gotta get outta the house!
Good to hear you're going to be ok Izzy. Get you out in the wilds.
Great to see you out and about Martin. Looking forward to more great pics and gear review.
I hope I don't disappoint Karl. It was a short walk but still it was nice to be out.
Great location and time of the year, hope it goes well.
Looking forward to the report ... maybe you could give us a tutorial on how you do your trademark Martin-in-photo image? ;-) They aren't as easy as you'd think!
It is still autumn down south? Great photo, Martin!
Your not contemplating a DSLR are you Martin?
Thanks J.Simon I shall try and do a how to. Hendrick it is still autumn down here. In the Peaks it is move advanced than near home. The photo is one I am pleased with. I have others I am very pleased with.Colin yes. But maybe a GF1. I need a better dynamic range and sensor. There is also the new LX5- I need to save and plan ahead on this one.
Glad you managed to get out - its about time I did the same!i'm happy with my new LX5 but I must admit I'm sorely tempted to trade up to the GF1. It'd always a compromise -the LX5 is smaller but more awkward to handle and the GF1 feels much better in the hand. The bigger sensor should also give better results. GF1 prices are now starting to drop too!
I think Hendrik has convinced me to go and save hard for a GF1 Nigel. Time to save hard and get one.
Excellent that you got out and about Martin. I'm sure the report will be a good read judging by the photo. I'll be interested to see your thoughts on gear etc.
Sigma DP1’s Martin? Flawed handling and painfully slow but excellent quality at a good price and very light… I’m happy with mine but it was obviously designed by an engineer and not a photographer. Still for the price its unbeatable.
Nick thanks. I am mulling over my gear thoughts before putting it on the blog.Colin thanks and you have really got me thinking now. DP1 with a huge sensor and dynamic range. Great point. I need to revisit reviews on it. Also there is the DP2. Thanks for that.
I mentioned the Sigma DP1s because its about to be replaced and therefore very cheap for now (£229 http://www.cliftoncameras.co.uk/Sigma_DP1S_Digital_Camera_). This is an absolute bargain and much cheaper than a DP2 or any other equivalent camera. You can see my Arizona trail photo’s taken with the DP1s on Flicker if you haven’t looked already. The biggest problem for me with the DP1s is that there is no live histogram feature which I really miss. You do have a histogram if you review the photo which is what I do but its time consuming. My workflow is this: take photo - immediately press review button - wait for photo to be saved to memory (yawn!) – examine histogram – adjust exposure compensation if necessary – repeat. Very long winded but bearable for the quality of the results!
You are convincing me Colin. I am getting into editing in Lightroom. I like the DP2 and the DP1X looks great.
Forgot to mention the LCD is c**p as well! I found using the optical viewfinder from my Ricoh GRII very helpfull in sunny conditions.
Thanks again Colin. I have been reading up on the DP range and am planing on getting one.
