There are many things in life where it seems impossible to select the best solution to a problem first time round, no matter how much time and trouble you take over it. A comfortable bed, for example, a motorcycle helmet and for photographers, an easy way to carry your ever expanding amount of gear. The problem is that you […]

I have been using a Seculine Twin1 R3-TRN wireless remote for some time now and I wouldn’t be without it for close ups when I am using a tripod and live view to avoid camera shake. In the last few days I have had a problem with the shutter not firing and am going to […]

When I am not taking photographs, one of the other things I like to do is ride a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and I have said many times, “you’re never alone with a Harley”. The reason I say this is that no matter where you are, the moment you park, someone will come up to you and […]
