Hi Bob sadly I am back home again, wasn't long enough say in Canberra, need two days just as the War Museum and we had to pic the worsted day to visit, it was raining and very cold. Sunday would of being a better day but still very windy had to rugged up both days.

Lots of pics on the iPhone, iPad and SLR camera which I didn't charge up very well for the trip in the Explorer DMU train from Canberra to Sydney was a dam good trip 11 tunnels very hilly and lots of steep cutting as well, good line to model.

Thanks for the link of RCS will contact him to see if he can help, to modify the older RCS remote transformer.

Saw the wind turbine farm, got one good pic from the iPhone.

Tony from SE/QLD, more pics to follow

The first link goes to another video Tony.

I assume you are doing this on your phone.
Try getting down lower to shoot if you can, I think you will find the results improved over helicopter shots. The train gets the scenery in the background that way.
cheers
Bob

Hi Bob, yeah that's the only problem with you tube there are a heaps more other peoples links as well some good some not, can't do much about that the only way you can load on video links is you tube to this and any other forums.

Yes I used my iPhone 6s, full HD cant get any better that that, I reckon the smart phone will take over the digital SLR cameras, iPhone 7 has even abetter camera.

I had trouble trying to film and controlling my train with a hand controller, should of used the clubs remote controller and the train run around the whole layout nonstop make sure the points are set. I have the same remote control will do the same thing be a bit harder a foot from the ground.

Oh year I had an issue with my first password it wouldn't log on got a second password and the same till my wife logged the pass word and it worked soon after that it worked on the laptop pain in the bum, this password back to old one

Posted some up to date pics of my modules for the layout getting there, not well at the moment don't think I will get chance to do any work tomorrow.

Tony from SE/QLD keeping on moving aheard

I will try to change

I think you are correct in assuming that the DSLR will no longer be the choice for home/travel photography. I ditched mine in 1980 for a good quality point and shoot. Only kept an SLR (later DSLR) for model photography.

The phone camera replaces the little point and shoot for many people and the home video camera too. Most phone shots won't print as even a 6x4 glossy however. You don't need as many dots to fill a pc screen up as you do a small photo.
About 2M pixels minimum for a 6x4.The latest iphone7 does have enough pixels to print a bit bigger.

Not such an issue theses days as photo sharing has changed to more social media and uploading to friends/family phones than showing slides or prints in your photo album.

Good luck with your password.
cheers

Hi Bob yeah you will only see top photographer using SLR's I was going to buy Nikon camera even with the zoom lens it wasn't as good as the SLR Fujifilm camera 1400 full digital zoom 750 normal zoom. What I need to buy a night filter to take pics of the moon too bright have tried changing different setting didn't work and want a wide angle lens too handy when taking pics of layouts and family.

Hope when it cool down later on this afternoon I get a chance in levelling the approach module, marking and cutting the legs, fingers crossed.

Will only be running trains in the cooler months summer no don't know what the heart of the sun will do to the locos.

Bingo I changed my password back to my old one.

Tony

Good to hear you got your password problems sorted.

I have never needed a filter to do moon shots.
Have a look at a site such as this.

Hi Bob, was a cooler day today till was warm in the middle of the day I waited till late afternoon before I undid the bolts and puled away the last station module,
I set up the last module forgot to take a pic will wait till I join up the carport module then take a pic so nearly there for the front of the layout long time coming working out well .

Thanks for that link on the moon, after reading the story I will put in a search on my camera to see what setting I have to change.

this pic is how my moon pics turn out like.

Tony

Hi Tony.
Hope things are goin' good down under !
Here's the Moon from my place.
Lumix u4/3rds, Tamron 200mm lens + Two 2x flat-field convertors.
Actually had to 'pan' the camera on the tripod.
The Moon moves pretty FAST with that lens combo !
:moose:
Si.

Hi Si, good to hear from you, any snow fall where you are in London yet, can send some snow my way to cool it down being bloody hot, in the very high 30's over the weekend and also humid, layout is at a stand still, can't even work in under the pergola being 35 degrees.
Hope you are ok in the UK , I am fine thankyou
Nice camera I had one of those lens  that doubled the zoom on another camera years back, my camera I have now I need to buy a tripod as well I can't hold it in place in full zoom 1400mm.
What setting did you use on your camera to get that pic and shutter speed, I am jealous.
Have you had any sign of snow where you live in London, send some my way to cool the hot days down being to dam hot and humid. This Saturday is going to be cooler but I will be at my train club, rostered on duty officer, be nice in the club rooms with 7 AC's both sides of the layout.
You guys have being busy over the weekend lots of new setting to test out, guess what I can't open any of the bottom new ones, bloody windows 10, still can't access the Gallery square, very disappointed.

Tony from down under
