  1. Here is my annual 'fuck Ferrari they can leave if they can't compete on more even territory post'. Fuck Ferrari they can leave if they can't complete on more even territory. I don't think the name means as much to younger generations anyway.
  2. You've happened upon what would be my Mastermind topic. Definitely a Series II from 1952-56, that dashboard with central speedometer giving it away as 54-56 (and looking the reg up says May 1956). Quite a rare one you've come across there, perhaps 120,000 were ever made and most will have rusted into dust.
  3. I've had enough of Adobe pushing their cloud bollocks on me and the terrible library management. Cancelled the subscription and am experimenting with darktable, seems nice but I can't even figure out how to export/save a file! Also I shamefully caved into an urge and bought a Fujifilm XF 60mm f2.4 Macro lens on eBay after telling myself I'd wait for a decent vintage medium-telephoto.
  4. !!!!!!! Morris Minor, going to say Series II. Just had to get that out after seeing it... lovely photo.
  5. Can't wait for this album.
  6. I've started reading this as it turned up in the post last week. Great stuff so far.
  7. I love my Helios 135mm. I could dump modern AF lenses altogether.
  8. If you like the look of Fuji the X-Pro2 is the step-up from the X100T with interchangable lenses. Drop down to the X-E3 or X-T30 from there in price but you get the same sensor and processing speeds (they don't have the OVF but of course retain the EVF). The older X-Pro1, X-T20 and X-E2 will be significantly cheaper second hand but still great as the updates to the X-E3 and X-T30 were very recent, the X-T30 was March 2019. Any Fujifilm XF range lens is going to be good; the XF 16-55 f2.8 or XF 18-55 f2.8-4 would be normal travel kit/zoom choices. Also our other thread:
  9. All the talk of "faith" in the teaser set off alarm bells for me, I could hear Burnham delivering it while staring earnestly into the middle distance. Hopefully this has nothing to do with the level of thoughtless pseudo-profound cliche that will be in the actual script.
  10. I don't understand what the point of Rich Energy is other than getting their CEO and his titanic ego onto TV and presumably into the F1 pits occasionally. Oh right I just answered my own question. From the judge: “Mr Storey provided different and inconsistent accounts of the development of D1’s Device, which also conflicted to a large extent with the evidence of Mr Kelly.” “He often did not answer questions directly, preferring to make speeches about his vision for his business or alternatively seeking to evade questions by speaking in generalities or in the third person plural. He only answered several questions when I intervened.” “He had a tendency to make impressive statements, which on further investigation or consideration were not quite what they seemed.” Wealthy arseholes who have never been called out on their shit.
  11. No worries. I feel like I've tried every combination of words in the English language and got nothing. It also led me to stumble across some vintage tripods on Etsy, one of which I've now bought instead. So sexy...
  12. Thanks @mindgames. I still can't figure out what that specific part is called so will have to buy a new complete assembly. Doh!
  13. Anyone know what this is called and where I might be able to buy one? Preferably knurled metal (aluminium)?
  14. I've started playing with an old Helios 135mm f2.8 mounted on my Fuji X-E3 (so 1.4*135=189mm). Learning the manual focus, not worrying too much about sharpness, and swirly bokeh from old lens construction is fun.
  15. I'm torn. Amazon are a shitty company, but they will give this the budget it may need.
