  1. I upgraded my SL2 to firmware 4.0. I found out that the Sensor Format can now be assigned to a function button. With this, I can switch from full frame to apsc and vice versa with the touch of a button. Previously, I created a profile to switch to apsc.
  2. Thanks Paul for posting these photos. I saw my photo, Bali Sunrise. Best regards, N S Ng
  3. Hi Andy, Thanks for doing all the hard work. I wish I could attend the event, but Singapore is quite long way to fly to Manchester! I used to go to Manchester when I stayed with my cousin in Oldham during the Christmas break. This was back in 1979 when I was a student in the UK. My last visit to Manchester was 4 years ago when I had to make to detour to visit Old Trafford on my trip to the Lake District. My son is a Man U fan. I have received the LUF 2018 Book and it looks great. Best regards, N S Ng
  4. Hi Andy, Thanks for all the hard work. I have placed the order for the 12 x 12 in version. Unfortunately, I will not be able to visit the Leica Store in Manchester. Now, if this event were to be held last year, I could have made the trip. My wife and I were in London in July to attend my son's convocation. Meanwhile, I have posted the link to the 2018 LUF Book to my FB page as well as several chat groups. Best regards, N S Ng
  5. Hi Andy, I couldn't find your confirmation email. Anyway, thanks for the reply. Best regards, N S Ng
  6. Hi Andy, I sent out the high res files on 1 April. Have you received those files? Thanks!
  7. Thanks Phil! I retired several years ago and each year I will select a few places to travel for my photography. So far I have been to Namibia, Ethiopia (twice), Morocco, Russia ( Lake Baikal, Kamchatka), New Zealand, China, India, Bangladash, etc. I have been a long time M and R user but a few years ago added a Sony mirrorless to my equipment. Sony Singapore saw some of my photos in zenfolio and I am now an instructor for Sony.
  8. Thanks Stefan. This particular location was a few km from our campsite. We were there in the morning to catch the sunrise. As you can see the light came from the left side. As it was windy, we could not get a clear reflection of the volcano on the lake.
  9. Thanks Mark. I do have a few photos from my travel printed, framed and on a wall and staircase in my house. I used to do my own printing with an Epson A2 size printer. However, as I did not print often, this led to the nozzles being clogged. In the end, I gave up doing my own printing. Yes, the light can be beautiful, but it was short lived and this region's weather is highly changeable. I was there in early August, but there was still ice on the ground! I will post a few more images from Kamchatka. Merry Christmas!
  10. I became aware of Kamchatka after watching a documentary a few years ago. I was intrigued by this remote place and I made up my mind I will visit this region in the near future. This was not an easy trip with 2 long transits in Incheon and Vladivostok. After that we had to use an ex-Soviet military 6-wheel drive vehicle to travel to this region. It took us 16 hours by road to reach this place. Thanks for the comments.
  11. Kamchatka Peninsula is located in the remote region in Far East Russia. It is also known as the 'land of fire and ice'. There are 160 volcanoes in this region of which 29 are still active. Tolbachik is one of these active volcanoes. A7R2 w/19mm Elmarit-R v2
  12. My dry cabinet is in my bedroom which is usually at about 26C on a warm day, with the air conditioning off. I set my air conditioning at 24C when I am at home.I live in Singapore, which is 1.5 degree north of the equator with an average RH of over 80%+ daily. Since we have about 180 days of rain per year, the RH is often close to 100%. The highest daily temperature is about 33C, although it can be as high as 36C. Usually, I do not have issue with condensation when I remove my cameras or lenses from the dry cabinet and bring them outside. Maybe you can try to zip lock your camera and lens and let them reach the ambient outdoor temperature before using them. When I was in Inner Mongolia in the winter, the outside temperature went down as low as -25C. I zip locked my camera and lenses before bring them back to my room in the hotel. This is to prevent condensation on the camera and lenses.
  13. Fungus growth on optical instruments is a serious problem in hot, humid tropical regions. I have been keeping my cameras and lenses in electronic dry cabinet for over 20 years. High humidity can lead to fungal growth and secretions from fungus are acidic and can damage the coatings and even the glass. I keep the RH at 45-50%. Prior to this, I was using silica gel. But this needed to be heated to remove the moisture after several months of use. Here is an article on the fungus growth on the surfaces of optical components, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3864060/
