Re: Wex Open Day - 11 October 2019

The Open Day is the event?

Maybe Iggy is referring to one of the other events on different days, which require tickets (and payment) to attend, and thus need to be booked via a button in the top right.

Re: BRICKFIELDS MEADOW DOORSTOP GREEN

That's a nice visualisation, though it'd be better without the golf courses. Also a shame it cuts off at the borough boundaries instead of including the nearby parts of Sutton/Bromley/Tandridge.

Re: Replacement lens caps

...the lens cap is coming from Germany. I was hoping I might get lucky - the description currently says "Bischofswerda, Germany / London, United Kingdom", but after finally ordering yesterday I received the dispatch confirmation today, and with an estimate of 10 days I guess it must be co...

Re: But It's £1,200!

The DPR review has a brief comparison against similar devices (half way down the page): https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-cyber-shot-dsc-rx100-vii-review-in-progress/2 It includes the Panasonic ZS200 (TZ200 in UK) which is $400 cheaper than the Sony RX100 VII, but still a significant increase on...

Re: Replacement lens caps

My current best fit theory is that I was abducted by alien beings and it got left on their ship, but they realised too late to do anything about it.

Re: Replacement lens caps

Mine is a 95mm cap, so looks like £4 on ebay for a convenient to use one. There are cheaper ones, but they have small side-pinches which would likely be awkward with the lens hood, and that one still works out at half the total price of the Wex one.

Replacement lens caps

So apparently in between putting my camera in my bag and taking it out again 5 minutes later, my lens cap went AWOL. At the time I thought it'd just dropped off in the bag, but it appears to have done a houdini. Exact replacements are available via various sources for £15-20, but Wex/Calumet do thei...

Re: Historic motor racing photo

The race programme had most of the calculations already done, for the Handicap section - all I did was check the distance on a map and line up the numbers after subtracting 1.5 miles worth of time for each car. It does assume they'd be going flat out for that distance, but since it's the last bend o...

Re: Historic motor racing photo

Knowing that it was the 1932 race, we can narrow down the time the photo was taken even further... The corner looks to be ~1.5 miles before the end of the lap, so taking into account car speeds and handicaps from the programme, and knowing that #31 retired after 13 laps, the most likely encounter of...

Re: Master of Photography 2019

Sidar's second image confused me, until I realised it's probably a garden/allotment. I still don't think the image works, nor his first one - a busy shot that looks more like supervision than the demonstration it presumably is. Jan picked five images - I don't think the first or last ones add to the...
