I think I have got a speck of dirt on my compact camera sensor.
Anyone recommend a place that can fix this? Merchant city cameras came to mind but they offer a limited service for Dslrs only

cheers

and Cameratiks if your planning a jaunt to Edinburgh.

Been a long time since i used them John to be honest they used to be the onlt canon approved service centre in Scotland. It's just easier for me to go to Cameratiks now but mostly i clean my own sensors now.

hi guys just a couple of questions about lenses is a lens reversing ring a good option for macro instead of spending a sh1t load of money on a dedicated macro lens and whicjh is the better option the sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG macro or the tamron AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 DILD MACRO NIKON 1:2 +motor both are just under 100 btw the camera im using is a Nikon D3100


I've got the Sigma 70-300 DG Macro. It's a good lens and, for that money, it's a steal. I paid about 130 for it from Merchant City Cameras. I'll see if I can dig out some Flickr links to show you the IQ.


Flip the Macro switch and you can go even closer.

Hope this helps

The 300mm will give you the reach and for a sub 150 lens its good but the macro option is a bit poor Reverser rings are very hit and miss beyond 50mm lens options...but MAcro tube sets for 8 quid can be had on eMbay

If I were to stop a random person on the street and ask them to take my picture with my camera - who owns the copyright of said picture?

No, someone on Facebook asked the question and it had me thinking.

Always dangerous, that.
