I did not oblige as I didnít really understand how to do it in an undetectable way. I thanked the guy for his brilliant comment.

I had a similar remark from someone else, who felt layering was cheating. I had a laugh, as later on he was using a layer to replace a bland sky. He didnít do it very well and on top of that, he oversaturated the sky with too much blue, unattractive. I didnít say anything as I didnít want to destroy his post.

It can work, if itís carefully done

Your a professional photographer Jeff and I really value your opinion
It can indeed work very well, it's just not what I would call photography. It is however very much art in itself
Me is a tog though and it's not something I choose to do.
I'm of the get it right in camera. Use editing to bring out the best in the photo but not put in what wasn't there

Cheers Jeff, that day you introduced me to the BTCC with Derek, I noticed how in between shots, you reviewed as you went along, the photos to keep and the photos to delete. Clearly, this flow works for you, what discipline

SD card?

Do you take on a shoot, one with a large memory or do you have several smaller ones on the go? I think your camera takes 2 cards.

For my dash cam, I have two 32GB and one 128GB (for a long road trip in HD/4K).

I had another 32GB SD card, but the data corrupted and I could not prove to the police I was not speeding. One of those awkward moments getting pulled over.

Do the cards eventually wear out?

Hi Phil,

I use Sandisk UDMA 32GB Compact Flash cards. Both slots used and I set the camera up to copy the same files to both cards at the same time. Should one card fail then I should have the same images on the other card.
I will add (whilst touching wood) I have never yet had a card failure.

At a motorsport event I usually take a total of six cards which should cover both the Saturday and Sunday action
