In Topic: Which Digital Camera To Choose

04 October 2010 - 09:26 PM

thanks for your helpful reply scoobert.

i've had a look at your photos & i am impressed with their quality. they look crisp, clear and the colours seem natural. the one of your beautiful dobermann is especially striking - one could almost reach out & touch her glossy coat!

can i just ask how sturdy the camera seems to you, especially the usually fiddly bits such as battery, card & connector cable covers?

thanks again

Unfortunately I am not familiar with the two cameras that you mention, however there is a web site that allows you to compare almost any two cameras; its primarily a technical comparison. Here is the link, I hope it helps you make the right decision.


thank you so much toronto - it's so refreshing to get an answer that actually refers to or has any relevance to the question i asked! (who on earth are these people and what do they hope to gain by posting such nonsensical replies - the mind boggles!!??)

i'll go and check out this site straight away


In Topic: Where Has My Downloaded Photo Gone?

Please try again and let me know what happens...

hi mark,

thanks for your reply.

i have tried again, all seemed to be going well. after download ended a page appeared for only about 2 seconds before disappearing & i was back on the gallery page (not quite sure which page of phtographyblog i was returned to, but it seemed like a normal page with no error warnings at all). the only way i know that something is amiss is when i try & find my photo on the website to no avail.

the disappearing page that appeared after download goes so quickly that i don't get much of a chance to read it! i think it says something along the lines of - "click here if you don't wish to wait or your browser doesn't direct you.....). after it disappeared i tried clicking the back button to try & get a shot at reading it before it quickly disappeared again! i did manage to click on the link (click here if you don't want to wait) but nothing happened. whether this was because i missed it the first time & it wouldn't work because i had clicked the back button, i honestly don't know.

what i do know is that all this is pretty frustrating! my account shows no photos at all.

just had a thought -

i joined photographyblog originally so that i could ask a question about advice for buying a digital camera. my account was validated for forums, but i wonder by now whether i needed to register again for the photo gallery? when i tried to enter the clouds competition, all seemed fine & i didn't get any kind of message stating that i needed to register or log in again.

it's not the end of the world if i can't post my photo on this site, but it would make my day!

thanks again


i managed to upload 2 other photos succesfully last night to my gallery. i tried to do the same with the photo mentioned above, but without success!
in all cases, a message showed onscreen to say that i had uplooaded successfully, but there was still no sign of the elusive photo.

if i have time i will try & upload a few others tonight - fingers crossed!
