  1. I'm loving my 5d4, hope you do too
  2. Dan's bit this week on the film Vice was great, especially as even after his revelation he still didn't fully get it. I loved Alex's reaction. My brain was breaking every time Dan said Snucker as well. Also to respond to a previous quote about Ben - I don't mind Ben but he just needs to try less hard. He's actually rather knowledgeable and I welcome his experience of genres I don't know, such as fighting games, however he just needs to calm it down.
  3. The 70-200 f/4, is a really good bit of kit, I hope it does you well I have both of the alternative lenses you mention, and I'd say the 24-105 is the one to go for. The 17-40 is excellent and one I use a lot, but at it's widest it is very wide, which is great for big shots but it makes everything in your subject look tiny! The 24-105L is one of the first lenses I bought and it's always in my kit bag, and is good in most situations. I've used it for countless landscape shots plus several weddings. It does of course depend on what you want to use the lenses on. Perhaps don't rush into it though, get a handle on the 70-200 first.
  4. Nice. I was just looking at Bulgaria as a potential photography trip next year

    Nintendo Switch

    A few YouTubers getting their hands on the revised switch now. Summary if you can't be bothered to watch. Note that this guy bought a brand new original switch at the same time to run them side by side: - confirmed battery life is better. Ran Zelda for an hour on both doing the same inputs. New model had 12% more battery at the end of the hour. - screen slightly brighter, better when outside. Was tested against a screen calibrator. - screen has more accurate colour, slightly warmer. Was tested against a screen calibrator - joycons are slightly different inside. New housing for sticks but unsure if it makes any difference. Different battery inside joycons but unsure if improved - zero difference in performance from what he could tell. Loaded up games at same time and results were the same, docked and undocked - runs cooler than old model, docked and undocked. Ran against thermal camera Keeping my eye out to buy one when I can, though haven't heard of anybody picking one up in the UK.
  6. Later on he does a straight minute of Tim Allen grunt noises. It's not good. As an aside I watched the Get on my level feature, and I thought Ben was fine on that.
  7. I'm an hour in and I feel like I've understood about two minutes, which was the advert for SquareSpace.
  8. Sandymouth beach, near Bude. Really struggled with the positioning of the Sun on this one but I think it just about works being out of frame.

    Nintendo Switch

    Hey, non Switch owner here. Does Doom 2016 work well on the Switch? Has Enternal been shown on it yet? If the Switch really is a good machine for Doom then I'm jumping right in!!
  10. I almost changed myself from the Canon system to Sony, however after much research and testing I moved from the 5D3 to the 5D4. The issue with the Sony system clearly isn't the image quality, but the handling and build-quality is someway behind Canon in my opinion. Things may have changed with this new release, of course. A lot of the review sites pixel-peep to find the most minute issue but for the most part the 5d4 is doing everything I want (if I was starting afresh now I'd probably get the Nikon 850 though!). Still, crazy specs Sony are putting out. I hope Canon's next set of Pro SLRs begin to catch-up again.
  11. Yes did one a few years ago using Wild Photography Holidays, though I went in February. It was absolutely stunning and you can see why so many photographers go there. WildPhotography were pretty good as well, taking you off the well-worn paths and giving you a fair amount of information about the locations so it become as much of an adventure as it did about landscape photography They weren't great for helping out technically if you needed it but otherwise very good hosts. Album from my trip here: https://www.petejohns.photography/Gallery/Iceland Last weekend I dusted off my trusty Macro lens to get some damsel and dragon flies. Following taken using the Canon 2.8 USM (not L) and Canon 100-400L.

    Nintendo Switch

    I get hardly any game time these days and have never used a Switch, but I quite fancy one either for the family or just myself on occasional downtime! What are the parental controls like? Can you restrict content and even restrict how long it can be used? Secondly if I was feeling mean and kept it away from the family is the system usable 100% handheld?
  13. Chiefs miss out again Great game though.
  14. The last shot is on a mobile, the rest are 5d4.
  15. Probably up to a grand if it gets the results. Cheers, I'll check these out.
