Many nice images ~ lovely canine ones from Penel (I learned one of my customers has a Black German Short haired Pointer a GSP he referred to as!) must Google as I have never heard of that dog.

yes GSP are lovely dogs, we see two on our walk every morning. Solid black ones are stunning.

How are you getting on with the flashes? When do you get the studio lights?

Good luck with your mongrel horde today!

I have no idea which studio lights to get - I've spent hours and hours reading about it and am even more confused than before now! The flashes are fine - always have been, as long as there's no fast movement…. :confused: which I know should not be the case…. I know that flash should freeze movement but it doesn't seem to ...

What building were you in?

Empire State Building. There are so many places I visited before I was into photography -- wish I could go back and re-shoot them now.

Hi all

I have Xmas question for you. SWMBO mentioned a while ago that she would like an iPad but looking I am somewhat thrown by the range and that the iPad 2 is still significant money, at £329 for the iPad 2 16GB WiFi :(

So firstly advice re iPads and pointers to good retailers & prices or based on need for a good email client (Outlook on her laptop in use now) and web browsing with secure online shopping if needed what would be a good non iPad choice. Must have a decent size screen with a "photographers" resolution (you never know I might borrow it sometimes for a bit of surfing as my BB Playbook is a tad small for the 'bigger picture' ;) )

TIA for the user insight & advice :)


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Went to Richmond Park this morning for my wife and son to run the Santa Fun Run for the Stroke Association (she ran the 5K and he did the 2K). Some good fall colours still...

1. Seems like a late autumn:

Here's another from Bodmin Moor - a 360° handheld HDR Pano...there were one or two stitching difficulties! Larger size if you click :)

Love it. The HDR is quite subtle and not overcooked at all -- very well done! The different shadow positions (due to the 360-degree coverage) messes with the head.

I bought an iPad in October - love it. Its much quicker and more convenient than my laptop (which I have barely used since). Still use my desktop pc though for everything and wouldnt be without that.

The one I went for in the end was the one which is now called the iPad Air, the 16GB wifi one - it has the lightening connector. The retina display is fabulous - images are superb to view. I also bought their case for it that rolls to a stand - very handy. I bought direct from Apple - if you do that, you can have something laser engraved on the back and the case if you buy that too which is free of charge. I just had my initials on it - they are small but its FoC :D They are slightly more expensive than some other tablets, but as they always say, you get what you pay for. Someone I know recently bought another make, it was faulty so they got a refund and will probably get an iPad instead.

I think if your other half mention an iPad, it would be risky getting anything else, she might not be so pleased with it ;)

Hi Linda

Many thanks for the insight :) Re the engraving ~ I think I know the company that does that service, I know they invested big time in the kit to do it.

But back to the prime subject..............y​es, iPad seem to be the ones setting the pace but FWIW we were shopping in Sainsbury today and on the pretext of browsing the shelves I/we saw the Samsung Galaxy Tab range and on the face of it they are stunning bits of kit and to be frank much more budget worthy! heh ho time to think and consider and cast about for reviews??? So at this stage just unsure what to do :( :)

Edit ~ the newest Nexus tablet gets good praise in comparison to the Samsung.

So at this stage just unsure what to do :( :)

Edit ~ the newest Nexus tablet gets good praise in comparison to the Samsung.

I've used both iPad and Android tablets (multiple brands). I got tired of my iPad because I did not like the need for iTunes and the general "locked down" nature of the thing. I wanted to get a device that would do what I wanted without having to buy apps or "jailbreaking" to circumvent Apples likes and dislikes of what the other 90% of the World thinks is normal. Don't get me wrong, it's a great device, quality build etc but just not for me.

After messing around with multiple Android tablets (mainly cheap Chinese jobs bought while working out there) I finally caved in and bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. This is the 2nd best Android tab I've used so far and IIRC, is distinguished from the Nexus by the fact it has an SD card slot so you can take it from 16Gb to 48Gb for about £12. Look at the price difference between a 16Gb and 32Gb iPad if you want to know what a big advantage that is.

I say it is the 2nd best tab I've used simply because I rather stupidly left it on a plane last week and am now the proud owner of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 as the Tab 2 is end of life and our supplier had none left. So, I'd say have a play with both models and see if you like either. Tab 2's are pretty cheap now as stores are trying to clear them. However, as Linda says, just make sure that SWMBO has not got her heart set on an iPad because sometimes, these issues are more than just technical ;)

very nice Mike and good to see you're still taking pics!

The six dogs went really well, although it was a long old day for me (and my dogs who were very patient shut in different parts of the house) - she arrived about 11am and left at 530, we had lots of breaks though and it was great fun. I"ve only had time to process a few of the shots - we didn't shoot any of the dogs together, all singly which was a relief as they were all extremely high energy and bouncing around as you will see when I post shots later on!

Here's a couple of more relaxed ones for starters!
