    Dpreview, the purveyors of in depth camera review, pixel peeping with the best of them have obviously bowed to pressure and released more instalments of their much awaited Pentax K-3 review. Still not a full review, to get the full picture, but enough hints of the quality of the camera,...

    Visiting Painswick today in a bright but brusk day, we stumbled (in my case literally…) upon The Royal oak pub, which served up an interesting pale ale, only available for 3 weeks of the year, and has the unique selling point of being green. This, I was told was due...

    In the great, albeit painfully hilly city of Bristol again today to see an eminent Professor of Orthopaedics for a full MOT of my old bones. Not sure if my forehead gets stamped with FAILED if I’m unable to balance on one leg whilst standing on my tiptoes…a favourite torture...

    Sigma have re-engineered their DP APSC compacts with new angular body design, and 45mm fixed lens. The main attraction is the redeveloped Foveon sensor. I won’t bore you with technical explanations, but this very technical response reply to the post about the new Sigma camera on dpreview.com mentioned the word...
