Compact, covers full range of cards, USB 3 is fast and reliable. Sits well on desk and the vertical position makes for ease of use. Looks great too. Good price, practical bit of kit.
I had a great time thank you, the weekend was a great photo experience for me, giving me more confidence handling my camera, especially histograms, I had read about using histograms, but having first hand tuition on it made them easier to understand.
I would recommend one of your trips to anyone interested in going further with their photography, the on hand lesson was most helpful.
I want to thank you for a fabulous weekend get away. Sue and I both enjoyed every minute from the time we arrived at Lilydale Airport on Friday to our return on Sunday. Johnno is a wonderful pilot and made us all feel very comfortable.
We both learned a lot about photography in such a short time. I now feel much more in control of my camera.
The accommodation was as comfortable as the food was delicious and we felt as though we had covered most of the island and saw the best it has to offer thanks to your preparation and the good driving by Craig Robinson from Ted’s.
I have yet to edit the many RAW photos I took, however with Sue’s jpegs and mine we have some marvellous new photos. I have set my screen saver to the Flinders Island file and when it comes on I don’t want to touch the keyboard!
We look forward to joining you on another trip in the future.
This is a great lens and good value for money. No it is not as good as a Canon 600mm f4 lens but it doesnt cost over $10k either. The beauty of this lens is that it gives you up to a 600mm equivalent focal length in a lens you can easily carry and afford.
Olympus IS also makes handholding a reasonable proposition, which is out out of the question with a FF 600 mm telephoto lens.
With good technique image quality will be easily sufficient for a good quality A3 print and so should satisfy most users. It is not a lens for dim light however.
I have used this lens now for a few weeks and have not taken it of my camera.
The focal lenght of 17 to 70mm suits me fine and the macro feature is very good.
All in all a great lens . The good price enhaces this even more.
This is the perfect size bag for me - allows me to keep my camera & lens together in one piece (fully supported) and still has room to store the charger, card reader, spare memory card & spare battery. I had the 140 AW previously and it was a bit small.
Unfortunately this product does not work with IOS 8 and the manufacturer classifies it as a discontinued product.
So it is totally unusable once you upgrade to IOS 8. Apple do not provide a method to downgrade to a previous version that works, so it is a totally useless purchase.
Very practical lens for price sensitive buyers who don't want afford 35mm F1.4. Sharp image and good for street photography. Made from plastic rather than metal, not good...
Bought this as I was looking for a tripod I could carry with me that was not bulky or heavy. It works very well and is nice and stable with my Panasonic FZ-45 camera sitting on it. Tripod can take up to 500 grams in weight, camera with battery is 494 grams.
I also like the adjustable legs as this means I can attach the camera to almost any support to get some interesting photos. This tripod would be very useful for someone travelling overseas, due to its small size and low weight.
Marked battery life and image quality down as it is a tripod and they have no relevance to this review.
I always appreciate pictures that can stop me in my tracks and request my full attention. I find myself staring at these pictures trying to identify the photographer’s objective, their subject and the picture’s flaws.
I fancied myself as pretty good at breaking down and understanding a picture, even though I never knew how to take it. It wasn’t until I was invited to attend one of Ted’s Cameras weekend camera courses presented by Rich Johnston that my inner photographer was released. From learning the interaction between aperture, ISO and shutter speed during theory sessions to putting them into practice through a broad range of outdoor activities enabled me to develop a well-rounded understanding of the camera and its abilities. I was also impressed that Rich took the time to remember the names of everyone enrolled in the course and his hospitable nature gave the course a personal touch.
I now find myself able to recreate many of those pictures that stopped me in my tracks. It doesn’t matter what level photographer you are, you will benefit from attending this course. I certainly did.
