  1. DALI's new speakers... have DALI lost the plot?

    They’ve been doing this for years. The Helikons that I’m listening to now have a ribbon as well as a normal tweeter. They must be a decade old now. http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/dali-helicon-400-loudspeaker/ I like the look of the tech in the Callisto. It’ll be interesting to hear them.

    That’s very good. The engagement makes it.

  5. Fuji's latest X camera - Fuji-xh1

    It actually really does look very, very good. The best result would be if prices in the rest of the range come down - I fancy an X-T2.
  6. Organic Sensor

    https://www.43rumors.com/wow-panasonic-develops-industrys-first-8k-high-resolution-global-shutter-sensor/ We’re years away from a viable stills camera but we look like we’re very close to the first commercial product albeit that it is a broadcast video solution. Quite exciting.
  7. Vivian Maier - I just love her work

    She’s an excellent role model for non professional photographers. Showed that creativity above a photographic career is a valid path.
  8. LS3/5a Suitable Amplifier old and new

    For British transistor amps near that era, I’d go Armstrong 635 or 636 every time.
  9. Replacement DAC

    It’s true in the budget and mid price area. Sub £3k. High end players from ten years ago are still impressive.

    Thx. I did the whole trip with the 56. I was surprised how easy it was to just use the longer focal length. The depth of field is making me nostalgic for full frame.

  14. Magnum Photos

    This is a good read about “The Falling Soldier “. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Falling_Soldier The main thing that makes me suspect it is the difficulty of focussing a Leica that quickly on a moving subject.
