Photos you‘ve taken


Had I actually caught a fish there’s a fair chance it wasn’t getting to the frying pan.


One day you’ll be convinced to trade up to Nikon! :grinning:




Just needed a little correction to DOF. :slight_smile:


I see the Japanese gov are trying to get fujifilm to buy into nikon as nikon is in a bit of bother.


Karma will have to upgrade to Fuji :slight_smile:


:joy::joy: never as bad as Canon.
The last thing of use that Canon produced was at the Battle of Waterloo!!





Took this before the start of Essendons first game this season. Even the weather gods were supporting the red and black


Charge of the Light Brigade nearly 40 years later.

Beware that every filter will leave a colour cast, and depending on the strength of the ND filter, you will need to Manual focus first then screw it on and shoot. Depending on how good the sensor is, you then have to worry about sensor ISO noise and heat noise etc. These can be removed and adjust in photoshop etc.

I’d lean toward a (circular) polariser first. Their effects are way harder to emulate (if at all) in photoshop, and again, depnding on the type you get, sometimes they can also be used as an ND filter depending how thick etc they are. Main thing to be aware of is how to use it and limitations. Especially if you’re going to use one on a wide angle lense.

I’ve stacked both the Pol (about 2 stops) and ND (10 stops) filter a few times, its a pain to get the right exposure but it’s worth it.

I’ve been a fan of B+W filters as they are made of brass, not aluminum. The glass is also a pretty strong as well. They’re one of the pricier brands but a worthy investment.


yeah, I have a B+W 10-stop ND. It actually puts a warm tone or colour cast on things. Which is good sometimes and not so wanted others, although if you have shot Raw you can usually correct it with White Balance if needed.


Cheers guys, much appreciated.

Taken on my mobile.


a few from recent Tassie stopover:


ive never really used the on-board modes such as “panorama” etc on my camera’s. But I decided to give it a go. I’m sure that doing it yourself with tripod mounted shots and stitched in software will give far far better results, but Its quite incredible that we’ve reached a point where the camera’s can stitch a series of moving, handheld pics together and produce a finished jpeg in a few seconds !

Camera advice time. I’m looking to buy a reasonably high quality point and shoot camera. With three small kids to take whenever we go on holidays or day trips, I’ve accepted that it’s impractical and downright difficult to lug around my DSLR and favourite lenses. Since my twin boys were born I haven’t even used it and have been relying on my iPhone for capturing memories, which just doesn’t cut it for me.

So I want something light fast and simple, but it can take great quality portrait shots of my kids as they play, and scenes when we travel. I’ve been doing a tonne of online research and I’m leaning towards one of the following four compacts:

Sony Cybershot RX100 (five models now, III looks in the right price range for what I want)
Panasonic LUMIX LX100
Canon Powershot G5 X

These are all pretty similar in specs. Also, for a much larger zoom:

Panasonic LUMIX TZ100/ZS100/TX1

Has anyone had any experience with these cameras, and can recommend one over the others? I’d love a Fujifilm X100F fixed lens but it’s just too far out of my price range.


I have the LUMIX TravelZoom noted above. When I bought it (and possibly still) it had basically no competition (small form factor, large sensor, more than a token optical zoom). Everything else, you had to choose only one of the last two.

It takes notably better photos than previous cameras of mine due to the larger sensor (and maybe to a lesser extent the glass). Interface-wise I’m a bit under and over whelmed. Not as obvious as other similarly featured Canons I had previously.

If it matches your requirements, I recommend it.


I have the RX100 (the first one). This is our travel camera when we are too lazy to take another.

But we also have the Panasonic FZ1000. Same / similar specs as the Sony but with the much bigger zoom. Also being slightly larger you can also use filters if you so desire. Also handy to have a good camera that can take 4k video as well. Should mention too this camera is still getting firmware updates which is good support.

All my Japan photos here are from one of these two cameras.
