Re: Wex Open Day - 11 October 2019

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. I imagine that is the case. Not all the Wex events require payment; some are free. There is one such on 19 September in Lond...

Photokina used to be THE biennial event for the photographic industry when all the big names came together in Cologne, Germany. Held in September, there were always major releases from the manufacturers timed to coincide with the show. Everyone wanted to display their best wares to the thousands who...

Access to the Church Hall - 18 September 2019

Shirley Methodist Church where we meet is currently installing new LED lighting. That means that the normal access to our meeting on Wednesday, 18 September through the doors at the front of the building will not be possible. Instead, it will be necessary to enter through the door which normally ser...

Chargeable Firmware Update

A feature of some manufacturers is that as soon as they launch a new product, they have zero interest in purchasers who bought the previous one. Cynically perhaps, they reason that there is little to be gained in improving older devices. It costs money for which there will be little financial return...

Apple and Photography

Perhaps the most eye catching part of the post in the link below is that back in 2015 Apple reportedly had 800 engineers working on the cameras in its phones. There is also an advert on TV at present which refers to "background bokeh"*. It probably says a lot about me and my almost zero in...

Re: BRICKFIELDS MEADOW DOORSTOP GREEN

You might also be interested in this link to LB of Croydon's A to Z of parks https://www.croydon.gov.uk/leisure/parksandopenspaces/parksatoz Thanks, that is useful. I discovered that Croydon also has a scheduled ancient monument, a bronze age barrow (allegedly) at the top of Croham Hurst. Why alleg...

Re: OLD CAMERA

A few weeks ago Mike Farley posted a article concerning old cameras, well I still use mine (40D, 7D and 7D MK11). Whilst away in Spain in August I used my 40D with a 18-135 Canon lens and 18-250 Sigma lens. An interesting post, Ron. And it is good to see that you are still getting mileage out of yo...

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. It worked well in the context of showing how much open space there is in the borough, which was the poin...
