  1. It’s looking out over the Singapore Strait, you can see ships as far as the eye can see there.
  2. East Coast by HectorHughMunro, on Flickr
  3. Japan is right at the top of my bucket list of remaining countries. Possibly Kyoto first then Tokyo later.
  4. As a plug-in it’s excellent. I wish I could launch it from Capture One then I could have everything; the AI and Capture’s RAW processing. Unfortunately, it isn’t a Viable stand-alone option. The workflow is poor and RAW conversion is only average.
  5. I have some Rothwells. I also could not hear negative affects in using them.
  6. iPad connected via USB to a Chord Mojo works really, really well.
  7. I was talking to someone a few years ago who was building a state of the art support. He thought Corion was the best sounding material. Perhaps some layers of offcuts? He was the then head of IFDesigns and was pretty advanced in that area.
  8. I like those stands, Gasolin. I’m waiting for someone to suggest a lower chair!
  9. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/09/11/britain-slumps-bottom-cancer-survival-league-tables-two-decades/ https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/uk-cancer-survival-rates-bottom-world-league-table-a9101916.html In international terms, very poor.
  10. They never could meet the needs of cancer patients. I remember looking at survival rates when my mother got it in 2000 and saw that she had less than a 50% chance where others in most of the developed world had more than that. She died. I don’t share the romantic view about the NHS that many have. I think the quality of care you get is random. For every good story, there’s a Staffordshire https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stafford_Hospital_scandal and this isn’t entirely down to money it’s the culture in the NHS. I’m open minded about private involvement and integrating it with the socialist model. There are better ways to do health and frightening people with the American model as the only alternative isn’t constructive.
  11. I think Kodak Ektachrome E100vs was a favourite for me. Provia of course was wonderful. Goodness, it was expensive to shoot slide film then.
  12. I was 50/50 between Kodak Tri-X and HP5/Fp4. I found Ilford creamier and Kodak more dimensional but that is very much IMO. I used more Kodak. The more modern emulsions that processed in C45 just didn’t do it for me at all and looked too flat despite the improvements in resolution.
  13. You’re right. The 56mm is clunky. Good image quality and really sharp but I didn’t really find it any faster than the 60mm 2.4.
  14. Well, I was joking to some extent. I’m not sure what is going to come out but IBIS alone wouldn’t be enough for me and probably not for too many other T3 owners either. Development seems to have slowed markedly. The 50mm looks interesting. At least it can focus quickly which the 56mm can’t. I’m just hoping it pushes X-Pro3 prices down.
  15. Save your money! There’s an X-T4 with IBIS due for announcement in Feb.
