GoPro Repair in UK

18 October 2014 - 02:10 PM

Could anyone recommend a decent UK company to repair a GoPro Hero 3 lens please. I need to swap out a damaged old one and install a new one.

I appreciate there will be a number of replies that say you can do it yourself but, tbh, thats how I got in this pickle in the first place!!

Many thanks


Sola 500 Battery pack

28 September 2014 - 12:18 PM

I have had the battery pack in a Sola 500 fail. Any advice on what to do next would be much appreciated:


Are the battery packs changeable?

Who would you recommend in the uk?



Thank you



10.5 vs 10/17

18 September 2014 - 01:23 PM

I have both a Nikon 10.5mm and a Tokina 10/17 for my nikon d7000.


Usualy I faithfully use the Tokina for no other reason than force of habit. I always have it at 10mm because I don't put the zoom gear on it (lazyness really).


Of late, however, I have been using the 10.5mm out of whimsy and noticed a few things that it would be interesting to know if they are true or just my incompetance.


The 10/17 seems to focus closer than the nikon.


The camera struggles to  focus sometiumes with the Nikon 10mm.


The depth of field with the Nikon 10.5 is not as good as the tokina (I always shoot wide open as I am in limited light).


Here is todays picture: it just seems a bit soft but I am not sure whether this is due to the camera not quite getting focus or the lens:


Iso 400, f5.6 (I had stopped it down for a prior photo and not opened it again) 0.4sec (its on a tripod so shouldn't be any wobble)
