    That looks really nice. Once I started doing them that way it made sense :)

    Had a look at those 100 albums. I've bought well over 300 records this year, only 1 on that list! I had seen another 10 covers and heard 8. That's taking into account receiving about a dozen pre-release emails a day.

    It really brings it home how vast the amount of music being released is.

    FWIW, I wondered where Sault - Rise, Lianne La Havas and Cleo Sol were on that list because they've been popular. Was the list made in June?

    It's always worth taking a view and having the tools to handle different problems, especially on the go. Completely understand that you want to get it clean, in different times I'd say go to a shop and have it done because you've just bought it and they'll have everything to hand to get it done.

    Swabbing the sensor is a most annoying process.

    As most have said, you should have a drainage channel. I would put it on the side of the patio opposite the door running the width of the patio and slope the patio by just a few degrees. Then connect the drainage channel to the downpipe. The industrial type of channel is pretty cheap but fancy covers can be sourced if the budget allows.

    Not sure on your filter cap size. I'm sure Sony headz will be able to advise. Spot removal you can usually batch with lightroom, I assume capture 1 is the same although I missed the boat on capture 1 and now it's too much money for the use I'd give it.

    I have been down the sensor cleaning rabbit hole and ended up with the swab and jelly like dabber. They both combat different problems but it gets expensive. I found it was enough to do a really deep clean and then pick up any problems when travelling with the rocket blower/swab/sticky depending on the problem. It does make you more aware of where and when you are swapping lenses. Also how you handle the lenses you are swapping because that's an easy way to transfer debris to the sensor. On the whole though dots in clear skies edit out very easily, unless you are printing at huge scale.

    Bracket exposures and HDR in post if you don't trust the internal hdr. You are running into the first ceiling on equipment of that price and age though, dynamic range.

    Grey card for the white balance, or one of those caps that has a grey card in them. In my experience it stopped so much of the fiddling with white balance.

    Yeah, I'm sure.! I was thinking of the degritter which is £2.5k.

    It looks good but will it get delivered?

    That does make it more interesting, they seem like a bright bunch. Does it seem likely to deliver in summer? I'm tempted to have a punt.

    I often make them in 5mm ply or thin MDF, sometimes start with a paper template and transfer it to thin board. It's still a job with a saw and plane to get a really good fit. The transfer stage gives you a chance to tidy everything up once you know it fits.

    It helps if you plaster the walls flat and sloping in slightly each side! Looks like the decor is already done though.

    Sometimes you can chisel a channel for the board on either side and fill to the face of it. The join shows less there than it does on the board face.
