Beginner Photography Courses Adelaide - Photo One

Life Changing!
, Adelaide, 25/02/2019

After years of putting if off, I finally participated in a course that would help me get the best out of my camera. I'd used it on Auto for far too long. Cally, my instructor, was fantastic. She provided excellent training and explanations of each mode, and used simple analogies to help me understand how the different manual modes work. By the end of the course, I was using my camera in full manual mode, something I'd never done before. By taking me to various sites in the Botanic Gardens, I was able to clearly see the differences in each setting, from capturing the detail in a flower to water droplets in a fountain in full sunshine. I also used a lens (fixed) that I still had in the packaging from when I bought my camera 3 years ago. I'm now devastated I didn't use it sooner!
Thank you so much for running this course - it has given me so much more confidence to take it off Auto.

Bushmaster F700 Telescope

Bushmaster F700 Telescope

Good 60mm starter refractor telescope
, Melbourne, 16/01/2019

This is a good light weight, quick set up, aim and look starter 60mm (not 70mm) scope at focal ratio of 11 (not f10) for beginners.

Easy to aim, the 60mm objective lens is good quality.

The eyepieces are the old 0.965 inch barrel, not the current 1.25 inch.

The 40mm eyepiece is good, the other two eyepieces less so.

Maximum useful magnification is 120x, can push to 150x as the 60mm objective lens is good enough to edge from 120x to 150x.

The mount is barely adequate yoke mount, has hard to use side struct azimuth slow motion manual knob for high magnification tracking.

Overall it will reveal the beauty of the night sky for those who persevere and patient.

The price at Ted's is great for s brand new scope for less than $20 (kudos to Ted's), nice if they can sell in store so not get hit with $10 shipping for those who can come to store and buy.

Back 30 years ago, would have sold for $220.

Fujifilm XH-1 challenging upgrade for XT-1 user
, ACT, 31/12/2018

The loss of the Exposure Compensation Dial was a bit oversight, but the location of the Q-Quick Menu button is a constant bugbear. Wish I had waited for the lighter, better designed XT-3!

Nikon AF-S 14-24mm F2.8 G IF-ED

Nikon AF-S 14-24mm F2.8 G IF-ED

The Best Wide-Angle Lens Ever!
, Melbourne, 30/12/2018

I got this as a Christmas present to help with my landscape and architectural photography. I am 100% happy with this lens as it has exceptional build quality, the photographs produced are sharp from edge to edge, and the lens is well sized and weighted. The only thing that can be a downside to some people (not me!) is the largest front element that must be cared for, and the fact that filters can only be used with an adapter (the filter downside is a little annoying). Otherwise this lens is the perfect lens for any landscape, architectural, or real estate photographer, but make sure you have a good tripod and a good working knowledge of DSLR photography and your camera. I have enjoyed this lens very much, and am yet to try some astrophotography with it; I have been told that it is one of the best lenses for this!

Nikon MC-DC2 Remote Release

Nikon MC-DC2 Remote Release

A Wonderful Remote Release!
, Melbourne, 30/12/2018

I recently purchased this remote release to assist with my landscape photography. It has made such a large difference, as I can now produce vibration-free photographs. The remote allows you to focus the camera and take a shot, as well as to hold the shutter release down for when using Bulb mode.
I recommend this remote release to every photographer who uses a tripod, or even any photographers interested in landscape/vibration-free exposures.

An Excellent Tripod!
, Melbourne, 25/12/2018

I purchased this tripod to help with my photography, and I am extremely glad to have invested in this tripod. It is sturdy, well built, and is full of features!
The three-way head is amazing, and it does extremely well to hold the camera as well as to move the camera around.
I recommend this tripod for any photographer wanting to improve their photography, and also wanting a high quality tripod that is worth investing in.

, Happy Valley Adelaide, 14/11/2018

very happy with the P1000 yes its heavy but you do get used to it . for me it performs best on a tripod due to size some times a little slow to focus but other than that it is awesome with how close you can get to a bird or animal far away best zoom i have used

Nikon D750 - Body

Nikon D750 - Body

Amazing Full-Frame DSLR for the Price!
, Melbourne, 11/11/2018

I purchased the Nikon D750 as my first full-frame DSLR, and I have had a pleasant experience with this exceptional camera ever since! For the price it is well worth it, as it has amazing image quality, wonderful ISO capabilities, great FPS for action, and beautiful colour reproduction! I would recommend the D750 for anyone who is upgrading from a crop-sensor DSLR camera, or even as a camera for a professional.
Some of the photographs this camera has produced surpassed my expectations, producing wonderfully detailed and vibrant pictures. At the moment I have the D750 paired with the Nikon AF-2 24-120mm f/4G IF-ED Lens, and the quality is exceptional compared to my previous camera; the Nikon Coolpix AW130.
The Nikon D750 has many features that I am still learning to use, but the controls are well set out, and the menus are easy to find things in and to learn about. This camera has no shortage of features, enabling me to produce photos of landscapes, people, animals, and much more!
The video capabilities of this DSLR are excellent, and by using the microphone sensitivity control (this is new to me!), the quality is further improved.
I am hoping soon that I can pair this wonderful Nikon D750 with more lenses, such as the Nikon AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6 lens, the Nikon AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8 lens and the Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.8 lens. It is guaranteed that with these lenses it will produce exceptional photographs no matter what!
