While walking by the river, I noticed the water drops on the tall grass...only having my phone on me, I thought I'd try my luck, and was pleasantly surprised with the result.

I do that too. Although once something went wrong during the copy and files on both the computer hard disk and the external one disappeared

Another external drive just 'died' on me. I think I'm going to back up to tape instead
I would recommend a RAID system, which has as much redundancy as you can afford. If you don't want to build your own, but have cash to burn, http://www.drobo.com/ here is a fantastic product that I've used happily.

I doubt it's an iPhone - would be surprised if it is. All I get from mine is fuzzy rubbish.

Edit - beaten to it

It's not the camera, although that helps, it's the photographer - and Tom is good, very good. You can lose your breath trying to keep up with him, as I did one Sunday afternoon.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

From the Swiss dance championships. I didn't really get any good photos, but thought I'd post something.

Any photographers in Schaffhausen. Would be good to get a local group going here as Zurich and Basel are a bit of a trek.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Hey Phil, from what I played with it its def HighEnd videos. But to be honest I hardly want to use it since I use it inside the studio for most of my commercial work. Plus on the photography side the 5DmkII is the first Canon product that has managed to get on the same level quality wise as the Nikon D3

Thanks for the info. If you hardly want to use it, you can always give it to me!

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

just some non fancy very dark images, taken at 0815 bar, after the day in the studio of radio nrj we all went to grab some drinks and with the very little light in this location, it made it very special to shoot some fun pics...













Just found one of my fav. shots during my stay in south africa, this image has been published in several Aviation Magazines all over the world also made it for a few as cover shot.

This is the famous last flying Piper Apache on the African Continent, operated by Cape Flying Services where I trained for my Commercial License. Here seen departing out of Oudtshoorn FAOH with the outeniqua mountains in the back.

enjoy this shot! It's dedicated to all the Pilots and Cabin crews out there!

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Some pics I took at the Autofriedhof in Kaufdorf. Sadly the cars have now been auctioned off and the site is no more . I would have loved to have gone back.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

The first time I wanted to try out "street view" in Zurich, I dragged the little man to a random spot on the map, and that's what showed up.....
