    Hope you're still doing well. Congrats on being published. You should post them in a thread.

Heeeeelp!!

by nikonjim on 08-14-2016 at 02:45 PM
I have what looks like a small insect or piece of fluff inside mt D7100.
I removed the lense, cleaned the sensor, mirror and gave the whole inside a good blow of air, but the thing is still there.
It doesn't however, appear on any images!!!
Anyone have any bright ideas, or can point out something I've missed??
Thanks

Dirty sensor

by nikonjim on 12-09-2015 at 06:41 PM
I loaded up a memory card full of shots and found that I had dark spots on my shots, all in the same place!!
Horrified, I then set about cleaning all my lenses, front and back, only to find I still had the problem.
I read in a magazine that a dirty sensor could be the problem, so I bought one of those sticky sensor cleaners, and my problem

Hi folks,
I've been gone for a while,and I can't get this website offshore.
I'm back for a while now!!!
I bought a slider rail for doing macro (non returnable), and discovered when it arrived that it doesn't fit the thread on my quick release plate for my tripod!!!
Anyone got any bright ideas?

Pen versus mouse

by nikonjim on 03-25-2013 at 11:15 PM
Have any of you guys had any experience with a pen, as opposed to a mouse for doing fine work in photoshop?
I can't seem to get the required dexterity from my mouse, and I was wondering about buying a pen.
Cheers
