  1. Autumn...Q2M with red filter on lens...
  2. You were played, but it all worked out for the best 🙂
  3. Cheers, Wilson. Trinovids would certainly save me some money!
  4. Well, that's a major consideration when you have a fixed-lens camera. I get the clearest UV lens I can afford, currently the Hoya HD3 UV, and leave that on. I don't want a single scratch of that fixed lens. The red filter sits on top of the Hoya.
  5. Hi Piran. It’s a low-level red filter, and I’ve noticed its effect can vary between subtle and marked depending on light variances. In the case of my wife and daughter walking in the woods, there was very little contrast to play with, but where contrast mattered - for example my daughter’s hands clasped behind her back, against a black dress - the filter really helped to catch that. It works most noticeably with puffy cloud scenes. A darker red filter would have more of an effect, but I find the B+W 49 090 5x to be the perfect strength for my uses.
  6. A walk in the woods so wild, with wife and daughter, the Q2m, and a red filter on the lens.
  7. I don’t think my wife is looking for those, Jan, but thanks for mentioning them.
  8. Thank you, masjah, for giving me the whole story in easily digestible morsels! It is now perfectly clear.
  9. Interesting. Can you explain why if they all have 42mm objectives, one gathers more light?
  10. This will be for my wife's 60th birthday. She loves birds, and has a very poor 8x42 pair. As this will be a special birthday, one we thought she might not reach due to illness, I want to push the boat out, so to speak. These are my choices: 8x42 Noctivid 7x42 HD-Plus Ultravid 8x42 HD-Plus Ultravid I've been doing a bit of reading, and for what she does I think the 7x42 would be perfect, I might say it is the front runner. But the other two are also attractive. I read that the Noctivid straightened out the plane of view, whereas the older Ultravids had a deliberate bias tow
  11. It was great to get out for a long walk in what was at times very strong winds. All Q2M with red filter attached to lens. It works best if you click the first, then scroll through the remainder, I think.
  12. I use my own cataloguing system, so never tried to import the LR version. Overall I’m very impressed Exposure X6..
  13. Q2M with red filter on lens, which I’m resisting taking off. The bark of the tree is covered in various species of lichen. Next time you want to move house, check out the health of the local lichen on trees and rocks. As in this image, a lot of lichen indicates good air quality.
