Really like the picture of the Golden-headed Cisticola. The weather in Melbourne is my preference for bird watching...... hot. UK weather is not conducive to me wanting to sit in dark, cold, damp places where you are more likely to get trenchfoot than a decent picture!

got to agree with you re-more focus points allowing for error Eric , there are many multi point modes on my current olympus body but I tend to find for a cluttered background just using either of the two single points is best (two sizes of points ) for birds in flight I tend to use cluster focus (all points) if the sky /background is clear .im pretty sure from memory that this will apply to the nikon A/F system to

Social media is transient - there are few posts older than a couple of months that turn up in a google search. I think there is still a place for quality images to be shared on fora - as well as the big "magazine" sites there are quite a few smaller sites like ours that cater for small groups of enthusiasts. At the end of the day the footfall we get is directly linked to the flow of posts onto the forum. Can I encourage those active members we have to spend just a little time each week to post a positive item as well as responding to other's posts. Maybe a garden through the year, changing seasons, the weather, hobbies & crafts, things we have made (like Robert's photo repro stand). Maybe if the current wave of the virus subsides with the warmer weather we will be able to get out and about more? I think more use could be made of the non photo category - other hobbies or interests or the latest funny joke or observation of human madness in these crazy times.

Fine image Richard. I am hoping there is a Z8 so almost all the features of the Z9 but without the mega burst rate but more than the Z7 even though the Z7 still works well for me. Just got a 14-30mm f4 S line lens so I am well set for my landscapes.

I dont really look at exif these days Eric , I'm now on the third iteration of olympus the omd1-mkiii and once set up correctly just does the job . my main lens is the olympus 100-400 which gives in FF terms 200-800 thats more than adequate for my needs .it will take a 1.4 tc but I have now sold mine as it was hardly used .. the camera and lens combo weighs in at just under 2kg and coupled with the superb I.S  systems of olympus and full water resistance features means these days I go out with just the camera and lens .. no bags , no covers  ,no tripods or monopods and simply enjoy what i'm doing . while the A/F is not as good as some other brands I find that I can track b.i.f easily handheld using a single point A.F  .   I now also have a good collection of the older f2.8  four thirds lenses that were in there day top models and are more than adequate for my needs ,I went out the other week to do the town xmas lights with a 11-22 f2.8 lens and took a load of shots hand held in total darkness that were razor sharp ..   I also now have the i.phone 12 which I often forget to use but as you have noted works extremely well

A most remarkable view Graham. May I wish all our members and visitors a very happy Christmas and an infection free and very good New Year, stay safe and well. This year has flown, I haven't taken many photographs but I have had a lot of fun.  Hopefully next year will be more normal for us all. Robert    :wine: :rudi:

Thanks for all the nice messages, I am a lot better, I was very active over the summer, playing on my little digger, as soon as the cooler weather hit I have retreated indoors.  Covid is nasty, I am still taking meds, 14 months on I still get breathless for no reason, often while just stood waiting for something, or even sitting at my desk.  My instant recall memory is much worse (yet I can clearly remember telephone numbers and car registration numbers from when I was little?).  I can't multitask at the computer as well as I used to. I am currently organising my music collection, a task I have been putting off...  If nothing else it's exercising my brain cells! I have quite a large collection of music, probably approaching 30,000 songs, a large proportion of which are rubbish, I am weeding out all the extreme, bang-bang-bang stuff in favour of melody and soft tones! LOL Chris and JK have both kindly helped me a lot by suggesting software to help sort out the mess.  I have many songs with no detailed track info but with the software I can download the missing data, even the images of the cover sleeves, from a central database, amazing. This was triggered by the impulse purchase of a Sonos 5 loudspeaker at a local second hand shop.  The speaker is amazing, the sound quality is superb.  It connects with my iMac via wifi, drawing on my music library, gives me a vast selection of radio stations around the world and also allows me to control it from my iPhone! As those who have met me will know, my hearing is very poor.  Due to a mastoid operation when I was a child, years of operating heavy machinery, rock drills and other loud stuff in confined spaces have taken their toll on my 'good' ear.  So, a clear, well tuned loudspeaker is to me a godsend, I can enjoy music again!
