September Report and Video

Weather and my wife's heart attack restricted viewing and photographs, so it's mostly Sun with a little Moon. My wife is now recovering following a valve operation.

I was thinking of buying a Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC HSM lens as I thought a wide aperture would be suitable for night time photography. However, I just spoke to someone in my local camera shop and he said that although almost all lenses have and infinity setting not all lenses are good for photography of ...
