Re: Riding - Mountain/Road for health & hobby info request

Noel, I did some maths for you on Cootha, comparing the front and back. Assuming Planetarium to either the peak (front) or Channel 10 (rear), Front: 2.4km, 180m elevation Rear: 4km, 240m elevation difference (closer to 260m elevation in climbing due to the descent from just after the turnoff for the...

Re: Riding - Mountain/Road for health & hobby info request

Also getting the free hub in my roadie replaced. Mine wasn't working properly or something... What wheelset is on your roadie? Mine played up a few years back, basically it wasn't greased up properly and would drag the cassette forward whilst freewheeling. I had a couple of times with the chain alm...

Re: Riding - Mountain/Road for health & hobby info request

I got put off by the 'commitment' to raise $250. What did I say about event rides and how much they bleed you?

Re: Professional Amatuer Shots

Interesting... It's probably one of those shots where a 5mm lens is required just to soak in the grandeur of it all!

Re: Camera Review - Canon G9X

I don't use LR, unlike everyone else, so no I haven't tried it :P Just like I haven't tried 'crushed blacks'.

If I want to reduce noise I just use my DSLR...
ISO 3200, no NR in post... :D

However, people's personal preferences when it comes to photography have nothing to do with empirical measurements of pixel data.

Re: Camera Review - Canon G9X

Took a bit of inspiration from the photos Ash and Ted have been posting lately to find these two pics from the G9X. As a quick side, I find that this camera fits my purpose perfectly - it is good enough on its own that I don't regret not taking the DSLR, and the images it produces are fantastic and ...

Re: Professional Amatuer Shots

Cam: How come you use a low ISO? i thought a higher ISO would be better for night shots? remote release on bulb is a great idea though. :) The only real reason (apart from teds lack of photoshop skills noise generation) for high ISO is to compensate for lack of light and to increase shutter speed. ...

Re: Professional Amatuer Shots

It's been ages since I've taken photos of fireworks, I had to go trawling back through the archives to find my settings. Tripod, ISO-200 to 320, f9-11, and then have the shutter set to bulb and I use a remote release. Bulb and the remote allows me to control the length of time the shutter is open de...

Re: Professional Amatuer Shots

With the flower shots you've done really well to get the majority of the flower in focus. Often they look shabby because there will be random petals/buds/bits and pieces in and out of focus. Colour balance on QMF look fine to me. I really like the wider angle shots (particularly with the water going...

I'll give you $50 for it because its no longer the best camera in the world (your 6S apparently) is, and because you've "used" the charger - I don't want to know what you've used it for...

Re: Camera Review - Canon G9X

Agree with Ted. The luxury of the G9X is that its small enough to always have on me.

The lack of good optics and no ISO control (part of poor optics with no IS) are the big things for me. Digital zoom is something which should die in a fire.
