    The Rllmuk Photography Thread

    None that I can recommend (only because I don't have the knowledge of which are best). Bridge cameras can provide large zooms because of their small sensor size, but smaller sensors result in lower overall image quality and low light performance (that's not to say they'll look bad though). While the sensor in a bridge camera will still be larger than that in a phone, you'll get better image quality from a larger sensor camera. Within that budget you'd be looking at a micro-four-thirds or APS-C based camera. You could get a Nikon D5500 and a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 OS HSM macro lens new for the budget you have, or pay even less (or get a better featured camera body) if you're willing to buy used. To be honest though there are multiple different options available from a variety of manufacturers, so I'd advise doing your research and try to go into shops where you can handle the cameras in person to see what feels right. It's also worth looking at the Talk Photography forums - you'll get loads of help and advice there as it's a dedicated photography forum.

    I guess it depends on budget, but the cheapest method is probably an entry-level DSLR with a kit lens and a set of extension tubes to allow full 1:1 (or greater) macro shots - especially if you buy used gear. You can also buy a reversal ring for less than £20 that allows a lens to be mounted backwards to give high-magnification macro images. Otherwise you would need a dedicated macro lens, which can vary in price (make sure it's a proper macro lens that does 1:1 reproduction - some cheaper lenses claim to be macro, but are just closer focussing than normal). If buying a dedicated macro lens to be used for nature e.g. insects, consider a longer focal length (e.g. 105mm and upwards), as you don't have to get quite as close to the subject, so reduce the chance of spooking them. If for flowers and other inanimate subjects then it's not so much an issue as they're unlikely to fly away. It might also be worth looking at bridge cameras, some of which have very good macro abilities, although you lose some of the flexibility of an interchangeable lens system camera. Most interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras allow you to adapt old lenses (as well as having their own contemporary lenses), so these might be worth considering if pairing it up with an adapter and an older maro lens.
  3. This just turned up on my Twitter feed. I’ve always liked Halloween 3, possibly even rating it higher than the original, and these action-figures really look the business. I doubt I’ll buy them, but I’m glad someone made them. I also now have the Silver Shamrock tune playing in my head.

    March, I think.

    Battlefield V

    Mine's been fine since the patch. The only thing I can say I've noticed is that on the respawn gameplay, it has sometime shown really jittery video for a few secs (but in-game it's all been fine).

    A few pictures taken at Newark Air Museum a couple of weeks ago. All taken with my Nikon F80 and Nikkor 28-80 f/3.5-5.6 on Fomapan 400 film.

    I've got a bunch of film cameras that I shoot regularly, so have a collection of lenses there, but the only ones I've tried adapting to digital are my Nikon F-mount lenses (none of which are particularly old - in fact most of them are still available to buy new). I'm in the same boat as @Agent L when it comes to focussing them. Even when zooming in and using the focus peaking on my Lumix GX-7, I still struggle to get really sharp images. As an aside, it's a little annoying that the supply of old lenses I'd like for my film cameras is now becoming more expensive thanks to people buying them to adapt!

    They should’ve removed the random bullet deviation and added weapon-sway or graphical distortion or something instead. That way you get the difficulty of being under suppressive fire, but know that if you can manage to squeeze the trigger at the right time, your shots will still be true.

    I think they should have squad spotting, so just people in your immediate squad get to see the highlighted enemy. Keep it like it was in BF1, so if the player moves behind cover the spot is lost (or shows last spotted position on minimal for a short period or something). Then keep team-wide spotting for flares, spotting scope, plane cameras etc.

    I probably phrased that badly, or used a poor analogy. What I mean is that BR is seen as the new big thing and so companies are jumping on the bandwagon to get a slice, in some cases to the detriment of their core product.

    Battlefield V

    To me it seems that Battle Royale is the gaming equivalent of 3D movies. It proved massively popular for a while after the success of certain tentpole titles, and then disappeared when people got fed up of having to wear special glasses and pay more for the priviledge. I don't think the average Battlefield player gives a shit about BR (or would play another dedicated title for their fix). Battlefield has it's own set of particular attractions and strengths, which is why it's proven so popular. I've not done the market research on this, so my view could very easily be bollocks, but my own view is that BF fans would have much preferred an extra batch of maps being released before March than a trendy, but untested in Battlefield, game type.

    I had a similar experience when visiting the London Aquarium last year. In the end I converted a couple I liked into arty-farty black and white versions as I thought they looked better that way. Out there somewhere by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr Beyond the cosmos by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr

    A couple from this morning. It was a bit chilly! Got some more but haven't processed / uploaded them yet. The first one was taken pre-sunrise, the second around 11am-ish. Trees at blue hour by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr Birches on on a winter moor by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr

    You've really got to love the vehicle physics in this game. I pity the poor bastard who spawned on my AA tank and the campy sniper who both get royally unfair deaths in this clip I made.

    Look at the state of this with the dynamite. I mean, it made me LOL at its shittiness, but still.
