Had an opportunity to test the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. Considering the price point and size of this camera, I'm absolutely blown away by its performance! Beautiful lens, great AF performance, and it produces some great quality images. Could this be the perfect travel camera? Would love to get hold of one for the two weeks that I'm road tripping around the Canadian Rockies.

For now, enjoy these few photos that I took this afternoon / evening. They've had a very quick brush up in Adobe Lightroom CC, but they're all very minor corrections. 

Still so surprised that its a 400mm f/4 lens that can be hand-held. Amazing! Could this be the perfect enthusiast / semipro / pro travel camera?

Hi there. Been looking into possibly buying a MIOPS, although I have a couple of questions:
Has the device now been released?
Is the App available yet because I'm not seeing it in the Apple iOS App Store in the UK?
Are there any UK suppliers for MIOPS yet?

Thank you in advance and best of luck with such an incredible device!

Thanks for the excellent review! In the process of switching from Canon to the Sony α range, so Im quickly absorbing as many lens reviews as I can.

Thanks again
From a fellow Tristan, and a fellow (soon to be α) Photographer!

 I would like Trey's drone and this is what I want to do with it: Wildlife photography - photographing wildlife in its more natural habitat from the air, but without the need for an expensive gas-guzzling helicopter. Sports videography, specifically free-style and downhill skiing!

Thanks for the great video DRTV and Trey!

New SAR post: Tony Northrup introduction to the A7m2. And watch out for the A9 Tony ;) http://ow.ly/2QZk65
Tony Northup posted this 30 min long A7m2 introduction video (Thanks Tony!!!). I agree with him when he says the 5 axis stabilization system is a real game changer feature. Ai also want to add the A7m2 has NOT the A6000 hybrid focus system. That's coming (in an advanced version) on the Sony A9.

Adobe Lightroom is my favorite workflow tool for my photography. Not only that though. It is the software I use for 99% of my photo processing.

Story
Tagline
Professional Photographer & IT Professional
Introduction
Tristan is both an IT Professional and Professional Photographer.

He has logged over 10 years as an IT Professional, starting before he had even left college by doing IT support for local residents and family friends, then moving onto IT Helpdesk duties during his time at College.

During his time at college, Tristan realised that his area of speciality lay in Linux based web-servers and security. While at college, Tristan began to learn Linux, and within one month had created a fully functioning IPTables based firewall and router. A month later, he had built a web-server and file-server on his home network, with both services and his whole home network secured by a refined version of his IPTables firewall.

This web-server and firewall design was used up until 3 years ago to run his own web-server and firewall. Today, these servers still exist, with the firewall replaced by a more business-centric package. The web-server configuration and best-practices still remain largely unchanged to this date. This web-server hosts Tristan's personal portfolio and his companies web presence. Today, the server gets nearly 1500 hits a day.

Since graduating University in 2006 with a Honors degree in Computer Network Management & design, Tristan has been working at Royal Holloway University as a full time Systems Administrator.

Tristan began his work as a professional photographer in 2010 when he founded Alopex Productions. Tristan and Alopex Productions began work with the movie production company 'After Dark Productions Ltd' giving him a niche photography market to target. His work with After Dark Productions has lead to roles in other productions, including acting and Assistant Director positions.

No matter the company or type of work, Tristan applies himself enthusiastically and fully to the work at hand.
His personal and hands-on approach with Staff and Students at Royal Holloway, as well as customers of Alopex Productions make for a positive and professional experience.

I do tend to eat out at Italian restaurants more than anywhere else, so I can say that Piccolino was one of those places that has always stuck in my mind and kind of become a benchmark. The restaurant itself is beautiful and offers a really lovely dining experience. I ate here during the winter months, and was a little surprised to be seated in what is effectively their outdoor area. The area is roofed (so absolutely no chance of getting wet) and surrounded by glass doors that open up. Being next to the A30, this always opens you up to views of traffic and loud car noises, however I did not notice that at all during dinner. It is surrounded by evergreen bushes which provide a lovely natural shield from the road and offending noises. The 'outdoor' area is heated with multiple heat lamps, which provide a slightly romantic red hue to the dining area, and provide ample heat. Never once did I feel cold, but with the pleasant fresh air often associated with outdoor dining. The indoor and upstairs areas of the restaurant equal the fresh open atmosphere of the outdoors. Tables are well spaces and the restaurant is fairly airy, if darker inside than the outdoor area. Fresh food counters are located throughout the restaurant, and you can just as easily walk up to the counter to select your exact cut of meat of fish as you can order from the waiter. If you're not seated upstairs, then a trip to the rest room will bring you by another fresh food counter, containing a multitude of fresh Italian delicacies. None of this makes a difference if the food is bad though, but just like the restaurant itself, the food is a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Food was fresh, well presented and tasty. Service was good, and the waiters quick and attentive. My only note of caution would be the price - it isn't the cheapest Italian restaurant around, however you pay for the quality, as well as the location. Being located opposite Virginia Water and right next to the Wentworth Golf Club and Estate does push prices up, but that brings with it a certain expectation of quality, and I'm happy to say that Piccolino easily delivers this! I'm planning on returning to Piccolino next week, so will update my review should anything change. As you can tell, I'd definitely eat here again, and would recommend them.

I've used Speed Graphic a few times to order camera gear. I've ordered both online and from their store-front. Every dealing with them has been a straight forward and enjoyable experience. On the stock-front, I've found their catalog of items to be extensive and very well stocked. They have some extremely hard-to-find items, including a lot of US items that are not generally found in the UK. They're also now my preferred supplier of the excellent Think Tank range of products, and have even had some of their limited edition bags in stock. Pricing on Think Tank items has been extremely competitive with other suppliers, with Speed Graphic more often than not coming out cheaper than the competition. In-store experience is great, with staff being helpful and knowledgable. They're always willing to get a product from stock for you to look at or test before purchasing. Being my local specialist retailer for photography gear (discounting High-street stores), having them only a 25 minute drive away is of great benefit, and I can often tie in a visit to their store front with a trip to Basingstoke. Online ordering is straight forward. I just wish that if you ordered and paid online you had the option to collect the item in store. I would absolutely recommend Speed Graphic to any and all photographers, both local and further afield. Their service is top-notch and backed up with an extensive catalog of items.

Bought kit from Park Cameras on and off for a few years, and always had good experiences with them. Their staff are friendly and helpful. If they say they will phone you back, they do. I first encountered Park Cameras when I attended an open day with taster lectures. Their teaching space is modern and spacious, and the event they put on for the day was incredibly informative and fun, with lots of Park Cameras staff on hand to answer questions, and representatives from the different manufacturers and guest pro photographers running workshops and training sessions. I'd definitely buy from Park cameras again, and they are often one of my go-to places for all my professional gear purchases.

Great dining experience. Three of us went on a Saturday lunchtime, and it was dead quiet. Service was brilliant and the food was great. Best spaghetti Carbonara I've had in a long time. For a high street brand, Prezzo is definitely a cut above most.

While I cannot speak about the in-store experience, I frequently use WEX Photographic's online store. Their website is always pleasant and easy to navigate with reasonable prices, and one of the largest product selections I've seen in the UK. Their customer services and Part Exchange teams are incredibly helpful, and I've never been left scratching my head about any encounters I've had with their staff. I'd definitely recommend WEX to other photographers, both professional and amateur. Delivery times from their store have been as promised, and items have arrived well packaged.

Went in for a weekday work lunch. Had a great time here. There were eight of us and the staff certainly made us feel welcome. Even with a fairly busy restaurant for a weekday lunch time, food was quick and well presented. I would mirror what I said about another Prezzo I recently visited, this might be a high street brand, but they're definitely a cut above most.
