  1. Thank you for appointing me. I think your camera is the same as Ali’s and as I’m looking for a new real camera, maybe I’ll order the same thing!
    (Joke). Nice pictures: the 3rd with the bee and the last with the red dahlia are my favorite. I wish you a lot of pleasant playing time to test and I’m waiting for the next SoS to see your new photos


    1. That’s right, Fred. I couldn’t be happier with it. There is a Mk III but it is eye-wateringly expensive, and when I spoke to the camera shop I concluded I didn’t need its extra features.

      1. I think I found the same – It has 4k video but I don’t think it makes much difference as I didn’t care about the top rate video because I wanted it for photos – a few other things but when the Mark II is such great quality there was no need to go the step further.


    2. You’re welcome – We have the same camera but I have a manual lens. I would recommend it in my small experience; so no joke if you want to buy one. The SoS just past was also using the camera but even less practised than this post. I will try to use it from now on and get my money’s worth for sure. Like I said I went to Hampton Court so I have some photos to share from there as well.

  2. These are brilliant! You must be really pleased. Red flowers are really hard, but your experiments are great. You are far more diligent than I am! I love the ‘half a bee’ first photo! He looks like he’s been caught unawares!


    1. Thanks, It is quite hard to get the shots right. I went to Hampton Court yesterday and thought I took hundreds of photos but when I looked back the whole day seemed very quick in terms of photo numbers and I didn’t any of them were good enough. I guess you need to take twice as many as you need.
