Racer

I went to the Cameraworld Live event at Brands Hatch last Friday. One of the attractions was not the gear on offer, but rather the opportunity to take photo of motorbike racers during practice sessions for an event over the weekend. As it was a practice day, entry was free and there were fewer peopl...

Re: New Sigma Camera

I went to Cameraworld Live at Brands Hatch yesterday and it was an enjoyable day. I spent most of the time out on the racing circuit where practice was taking place for a motor bike meeting. More of which at some other time. At Cameraworld Live, I stopped off at the Sigma stand, but there was no sig...

Togcast Photography Podcasts

I came across these podcats a while ago, but did not have the patience to sit through them. That was a misjudgement on my part. These are not your typical podcats with someone wittering on while the listener waits for any nuggets of wisdom which the speaker might deign to impart. I have just listene...

Re: 2000 Year Old Optical Mystery Solved

The really interesting thing about this is does it make obsolete the larger mount sizes and bigger lenses to accompany the faster f stops? I am far from being any kind of expert on optical design so I might be way off beam (yes, I know), but I suspect that the two are not related. As I understand i...

2000 Year Old Optical Mystery Solved

I cannot claim to comprehend in full the science described in this article. What I do find amazing is that the problem of spherical aberration in lenses has been known for 2,000 years. That is long before I thought people were investigating optics. Ancient Greek mathematician Diocles first wrote abo...

Re: Win a Zeiss Batis lens

That does not mean that anyone in this country who is fortunate enough to win it will necessarily receive it free of charge. Camera lenses attract 6.7% import d...

Re: Shot of the Week 2019/15 - Stride

It is worth pointing out that the filter might not have been misaligned. Sometimes the aluminium material used for the filter ring binds in the fitting on the camera and is a known phenomenon. If you want to avoid it happening again, you could try a filter made with brass which seems to be the only ...
