    Another Problem YOG Thread :)

    And yes, this is in the correct forum, I think :) Okay, there's a pretty active thread about the state of food provided to volunteers at the YOG. A lot of people are up in arms over the poor quality of food, some people are defending it. At any rate my main point is slightly different...

    The Start of the Infrared Flash Torrent

    So, it has begun. The tirade of people shooting infrared flash and having flashguns modified. Okay it's new, and okay it's novel, but let's not forget that images have to work as images, not just because it's new and novel :) By all means go out and shoot with your new gadgetry, but...

    Am I the only one...

    ... whose eyes water at the "bro" spam on CS these days? o.O Why have we suddenly gone increasingly sibling friendly? I could vaguely understand and happily tolerate the occasional "bro" in place of a name, but suddenly we seem to have turned into a religious seminary with bro A, bro B...

    SB800 LCD Replacement

    Has anyone had this done and have a rough idea how much it costs? Unforunately I now haven't got a repair centre within 125 miles of me, so it's postage to Nikon and back again and I'd really rather find out if it was "beyond economical repair" ;p The plastic surface seems fine, it's just...

    Focus on Imaging - Think Tank/Lee Filters

    Was at Focus in Birmingham today and pieced together a sparse few bits of information :) Doug Murdoch was in town and I had a brief chat, it seems Think Tank has a new lens change satchel style pouch on the way in "a couple of months". They had working copies of it, and I have to say I was...

    MC-36 Feedback?

    Hi folks, I was just looking at getting one of these to replace an MC-30 I lost. Does anyone have any feedback about it, generally, and also with regards to these specific areas: [1] In use, is it annoyingly big/heavy for a remote? It seems quite long thanks to the AAA batteries. [2] Is...

    Durham Cathedral IR

    Had a little jaunt down the icy river footpaths; apparently I haven't taken a cathedral picture in almost two years - certainly what they say about never shooting what's closest to you holds very true! Taken with the R72 modified D80. No hotspot problems with my "new" 14-24 thankfully! These...

    A Hotspot Comparison

    Of the Nikon AF-S 24-70/2.8 at various apertures. This lens is widely known online to have excellent IR performance, sadly mine seems to be an exception. Hopefully this will serve as a guide to people who are new to IR and are wondering what hotspots are all about; this is also a fairly...

    Recommend a General Purpose Lens for IR (Nikon)

    Hi all :) I recently did the IR conversion thing to a D80 and I'm loving it, but I was devastated to find that my general purpose 24-70 AFS has very bad hot spot problems. Aside from a 50mm that I rarely bring out with me that's the only lens that I have in that range so it's majorly...

    Question for the experts :)

    Hi :) I'm fairly new to IR with digital cameras although I used to dabble with HIE in the past. I've just had a D80 modified with an R72, and I've noticed some flare-y type hot spots. I've heard about hot spots; and read teerex's stickied thread but didn't get too far with the first two...
