    Whilst I normally take landscapes, it is nice to do some people photography from time to time. The day out. by Rick Francis, on Flickr
  4. Silent shutter mode is great for concerts and street photography. I don't know if my A7R has it as I only use it for landscape and that doesn't need it, but my Oly & Panny cameras it's useful.

    After yesterday's weather I had to get out tonight for a walk, glad I did as it was lovely! Ashdown Forest, Crowborough. by Rick Francis, on Flickr
  6. I think this will be a problem with most modern cameras as more features are added. There's only so many buttons they can fit and new features sell cameras so the menus have to grow. I think there could be a market (well I want one) for a basic, quality camera that's pretty much all manual. Maybe spot, centre & average metering, auto focus would do it for me.

    Sonus Faber - best speakers in the world ?

    I have and I do, but I feel I need to invest in some room treatment so will see what GIK advise.

    The issue I'm having is due to the rear ports and being placed close to the rear wall, the Snell's didn't mind as the bass driver fired down. I also have found they work best crossed over. I'm forever hopeful I'll be able to move one day and use them in a larger room.

    Sadly they aren't the SE version. TBH I'm having trouble integrating them in to the room which is why I haven't posted a short review. I'm still working on them so hopefully they will get better
