    • Not to be cruel, but should we all be buying gear from the UK?
      I'm in the UK and the price of gear here is extortionate.  Don't expect the price to go down, it will go up by as much as 15%. I've already received an email from a UK supplier saying some products will go up by 5% already.  Stick to the US Ed!  
    • Lenses
      The A7r 2 is also for my photo work. Wanted that full frame for that, video I can deal with crop. But mainly I can no longer accept doing run and gun work without an EVF, external moniters and eye cups just give me trouble. 
    • Not to be cruel, but should we all be buying gear from the UK?
      Yeah, but a lot of the grey market cameras from Asia come into the UK via other European countries and we avoid duty and VAT (I've bought some lenses and bodies shipped from France/Ireland).   This way one can get a similar prices compared to buying in US/Canada (where I also shop when I visit family).  When the UK leaves I can see the customs office going militant with VAT collection and their usurious "handling' fees as the loophole will be closed and this is what happens if you are buy something directly from Asia/US now.
    • An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds
      Can you explain where I can learn more about this?  Any tips about direct Facebook uploading as it generally looks the most horrible?
    • An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds
      The cool thing is that the custom setting remembers everything, like white balance and shutter speed settings. I had my first paid video job this weekend, to record a local Carnival parade.  I was all set to go with my GX80s and I was using C1 for 4k/25fps and C2 for 1080p/50fps and set both with similar settings except for shutter speed.  It was really easy to reset everything back to baseline.  I could easily have set up C3 for time-lapse as well, but I was using my LX100 for that. I was using the two GX80 with the 12-35 and 35-100 zoom lenses plus LX100.  A Shure VP83F for general audio and Sony SX1000 hand recorder for recording a couple of specific performances.  The audio wasn't going to be critical due to the rain/wind and the client was expecting a montage over samba music anyway (no interviews).  I'm hoping that the Instamic ships some day as a small, high quality mic like that would be helpful to plant on people/things when shooting spontaneously.   Everything was packed into a 13" messenger bag as well as a Mefoto tripod and a couple small clamp/gorilla pod support, extra batteries, cards and rain protection gear as the outlook wasn't good.  I was prepped to be on my feet and mobile for about 5 hours documenting the parade setup its progression through the town. Just as things started happening the skies unleashed torrential rains and due to the lightning (and large costumes being erected in an open field) they cancelled the event.  I only got some shots during the early preparations and performers packing up between large cloudbursts.  I did like the quality of the limited stuff that I got, however was very disappointed as it would have been a very fun event to video.  Very unfortunate... The most useful thing that I had with me that day was a head-mounted umbrella that kept my hands free and my cameras dry.
