Re: I Wonder

The other big question about the Canikon duopoly is what the future holds for their mirrorless offerings. Both of last year's simultaneous launches came too late for the gear to feature in the 2018 WPOTY. That does not rule them out of contention for this year. With the obvious caveat that limited n...

Re: I Wonder

In 2016, the winner Tim Laman only used a GoPro camera to capture his image of a critically endangered Bornean orangutan high up in the canopy. https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/news/2016/october/wildlife-photographer-of-the-year-winners-announced.html I am, of course, aware of that shot and how it wa...

I Wonder

I finally got to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition yesterday. It closes at the end of the month after a lengthy run run and I expected it would be quiet as a result. Not a bit of it. There was a sign at the entrance saying it had sold out for the day. Fortunately, I was still able...

Re: Colour Perception Test

8/10 for me. I got one of the yellow sequences wrong and was careless when I did the last one, failing to check the top of the character. It is a tough test, although I am not sure how much it proves when it comes to real life application. If it is that difficult to determine the variation between t...
