  1. Dear David,

    In collaboration with Sony Switzerland I just published a beautiful 200p large-size book about the a900 and all the good old alpha lenses (Minolta, Sony, Zeiss). I’d like to send you a copy. You’ll find a few pdfs here:

    Greetings & all the best from southern Switzerland ;)

    Hello David
    I hope you don’t mind me asking you a Alamy related question via this website.
    I have read various posts of yours on the Alamy forums and think you seem to know what you are talking about, I have also read that you are a Mac & Aperture user.
    So I was wandering if you could tell me what is your workflow using Aperture to submit to Alamy.
    Regards
    Richard Turner

    David: I saw your YouTube video about NEX-3 adapters. I have a bunch of old Nikon AI lenses. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks so much.

    I don’t use Aperture, I use ACR/Bridge. That’s mainly because I use the lens profiles and camera colour profiles in ACR/Lightroom. I do not like raw processors which try to catalogue or organise your files in libraries etc. For that, I use Expression Media 2 and it is the master catalogue for all my finished images. I do have Aperture installed it’s just too slow and non-intuitive for individual file processing. I do not shoot it batches and therefore find all batch-type processors (including LR, DxO, C1) less than efficient. Every picture is individually processed.

    Kipon make affordable adaptors. I have their tilt adaptor, they make one for Nikon fit. It’s rather fun to use. Anything much cheaper (generic Chinese) can be very variable; anything more expensive (Sony Approved Voigtlander, LensBaby) can be a silly price relative to the cost of the NEX itself.

    I spoke to your wife this evening. Graeme Webb contacted you way back in June about you possibly coming to Kelso Camera Club on 26th September to give an illustrated photographic talk on a subject of your choosing. He has not heard from you and has even tried phoning. As time is getting short I thought I would have a go. We really would like you to come. Regards, Ian Topping, Chair, Kelso Camera Club
