Would an SSD fit in a Sony laptop that is about 5 years old? Need to fix up a friends one for him!

Would it fit? Yes. Is it a good idea? Probably not.

Very nice, really wish my 24-105 wasn't broken, had some great sunsets here recently! :(

Is it worth just chucking a decent speed hard drive in then, or binning the laptop all together?! Lol..

Depends what you are trying to achieve. Generally, more memory and a fresh install of the OS is the best way to improve speed on an old machine. A faster HDD can help but depends on what is already in there. If it's a 5400rpm drive then going up to 7200rpm won't make such a difference. Also, you'd need to check if it has a SATA or PATA interface. IMHO, if the kids don't want it and there is no one you know that just needs an internet/email device, then bin it.

Great series Dom, only niggle is the slight difference in exposures between them.. :)

Thanks Matt, I think the exposure is probably down to processing as I can never get each shot the same even when I use the same setting on each.

I like this it reminds me I must get out and do some more sunrise/set shots.

That could be the problem, if one already has a different exposure then copying settings across will just enhance this.. I always find a little tweak after solves this problem! :D

Great set Dom, as Matt has said looks like a tweak of the exposure will bring the levels up nicely.

Pete: Looks like you are getting to grips with the new camera. are you getting the images developed or just getting the negatives done and scanning them in?

Have been up in Newcastle this week to see my Godsons graduation from army foundation college and went and saw the Angel of the north on the way back. The light was not good so have tried my hand at my first HDR shot. There seems to be a very fine line between getting it right and over cooking it. Anyway here is my first attempt.

Good effort.. I would run the tiff file through LR and maybe back of the saturation a tiny bit so the angel and grass, shrubs etc arn't so vibrant, afterall it's an overcast day :)

Thanks for the feedback Steve I'll tweek them and see what happens. Good luck to your godson in is career which corps or regiment is he going into?
I'll have to agree with Matt it's a bit to over saturated for me.

At the risk of boring people one more I'd like some feedback on please.

That looks a lot better Steve. How long before joins the battalion? They had the sad news yesterday with the loss of a Guardsman in Nahr-e Saraj.

I'll have another play with it.

He has 12 more weeks training at catterick, then I believe he is going to London for guard duties before moving onto active duties. He turns 17 at the end of the month so still quite young.

He'll have a year before he's old enough to go on tour so he'll probably go on the next one if they go as it'll be 18 months away and the draw down is supposed to starting then.

These are transparency films. Getting them developed by mail order and then scanning them in using my film scanner.

Turns out that the film I'm using is good stuff, but very unforgiving when the exposure isn't exactly right, which I seem to fluff quite a bit....
