1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Pop!!! fizz

    Not what you want to hear when you are taking photos!
    I was using my D850 grip and ring flash snapping bees on my borage, it went pop fizz and I switched off fast, turns out a Energiser battery (cell) in the ring flash had gone pop and leak.
    I neutralised the leaked fluid with vinegar and clean water and everything seems o/k.

    Yes it was fine thank goodness, it’s not the sort of sound you want to hear next to your face!

    Glad to hear it and indeed - the D850 is replaceable but your face is not!
