This is when you need a friend the US that can do the shipping for free :)

Not free.. but can arrange... US$299 is about NZ$480 ATM - so NZ$1K seems a bit extreme. Shipping (I guessed package size) is probably about $60-70 US - about $100 NZ

I finding it rather hard to get my butt moving to get out at moment, mind you it is always windy at this time of year.
I do have a few plans and things to try out in the field, found my note8 still works with my camera and an app I have that allows me to control camera via phone.
The idea is to use phone as the view finder, like live view but bigger screen.

Watching a lot of youtube at moment, looking for answers and how to improve shot and understanding contrast scenes which then will enable me to be more productive in post.


So far the biggest tip has been slow down look at the scene and plan 1 or 2 compositions, don't try to shoot everything or you will just end up with snaps ……


Still undecide on my next lens …… sigma about to release 60-600 upgrade from bigma, I need to test the 100-400 with a 1.4 TC still

As said the first thing when teaching landscape we do is get people to put the camera down.

It's far to easy to start snapping everything without thinking about the what and how.

Without holding the camera you're looking at things in a far more analytical way already.

We try to spend at least 15 min scouting the immediate area and planning on as many compositions as possible considering how the light will change.

Yeah, doesn't have to be hard.

Quick look around for interesting foreground things.
Make a list of things you don't want in the frame.
Combine the two with the background
Check corners etc.

Always flip camera around for portrait shots too.
Unless there's only 1 comp on make sure you don't stay static very long.

if there is a prize then Joeseph gets it. Not sure what the prize is tho :)

It's Napier. I went down for a funeral a few weeks ago and used Napier as a stopping point.

I had taken the camera for just a few snapshots. I hope it works.

Panasonic’s full frame mirrorless announcement (partnered with Lieca and Sigma) looks interesting. They don’t seem to be holding anything back, unlike the recent Canon and Nikon offerings. The reviews will be telling when they are released next year. I don’t see myself returning to full frame with any brand, unless I take up some serious low light photography, which is unlikely. But that market is looking overcrowded all of a sudden.
I’d still rather carry the smaller, lighter gear, which is plenty good enough for what I shoot.

It's crowded because it's the only place left with decent margins. They'll murder each other.

Hey, lets not forget the new camera by Leica, the S3 and even tho there is no price that goes with it. that little red badge is going to suck all your cash.

Just played with the eos r. It's a damned fine camera.

But it's 2018 and it costs 4k so it pretty much should be.

Id buy one if I was looking, if I didn't have a 5d4 already. I might swap the 5d4 for one if I can. Might.
