  1. That is a disappointing amount of noise for a flagship camera.

    The Other Tower

    It was bombed by Irish terrorists. Excellent photo.

    I love the dramatic shots with the sand contrasting with the sky, the people adding scale.
  4. Good luck to them if they can sell these products at a profit. They make lots of other products which are much better value for money. I have looked at the latest trackpad and keyboard (they came bundled with Mrs A's recent iMac) and decided that I will not buy them as they do not add to what I have. If they had been cheaper I might have bought them. Apple has lost out on a sale to me, but maybe profited from others who take a different view. It will be interesting to see how their strategy succeeds.

    Thanks, Dallas, I do enjoy sports photography.

    Javelin. Safety considerations were also relevant here.

    Pole vault.

    Discus. Safety considerations made it difficult to get the ideal shot.

    Long Jump.

    On 26 May I visited the English Athletics Championship in Bedford. Most of the events were in the Men's Decathlon and the Women's Heptathlon, hence the same faces kept appearing. First, the hurdles. Please click on image to view large.
  11. Sure they will work, but they will be speed limited by the USB connection on the iMac. Whether future proofing will be worth the price depends on how long the iMac will be in use. There is also the issue of whether the extra speed will be worthwhile for Dallas' use when he eventually replaces the iMac. For normal still photography I do not see any real advantage.
  12. A USB C plug will not fit a USB 2 or 3 socket, and I think that only more recent Apple computers have USB C sockets.
  13. It is not really possible to compare the dynamic range of a scene shot in different lights and at different times of year.

    Thank you, Daniel and Dallas. It was a lot of fun (but very noisy).

    Last Sunday I shot some Motocross at Canada Heights in Kent. Here are some of the results.
  16. I have three external hard drives. One holds all my data - I do not keep anything other than apps on the iMac. The next is a Time Machine. The third is a bootable backup drive managed by Super Duper.
  17. I have used LaCie drives for years, never had a problem. The iMac Pro price is crazy. I think it is not worth it for stills photographers.
  18. Lovely composition.

    Thanks, Hugh. The transportation of ice blocks for refrigeration happened also in the UK and other northern hemisphere countries before the invention of refrigerators.

    The last photograph was taken on Half Moon Island in Antarctica. It is an iPhone XS shot, my camera equipment was in my backpack and I was hurrying to catch the zodiac from the beach. The phone was on as it was being used as a GPS logger. I am impressed with the quality of the iPhone camera, certainly for close subjects. The first three photos were taken at Deception Island, a volcanic island in Antarctica. The name probably comes from the fact that it looks like a normal island, but is in fact a ring around a flooded caldera. The caldera is 9km (5.6 miles) by 6km (3.7 miles). The last major volcanic eruptions were in 1967, a969 and 1970, which destroyed the scientific research stations. The whaling industry had disappeared in the 1930s.
  22. Originally used to collect glacier ice to be melted to make water.
  23. That does not sound good. I hope you find a way to rediscover joy in photography.
