Hi Patrick,
Good to hear the FZ1000 is fulfilling your needs, guess quality wise it's the same as the RX10, you have however a little more zoom-range.
Also shoot only in aperture-mode.

Roy

Thanks gents for your comments!

Cedric I found a way in "preview" to resize the pictures to any amount you like, this gives me the possibility to crop not that much so the quality will not be degraded that much. Of course in that case I'll have to post from home, internet on board is so-so at the very best.

Vlad I will do my best and post more regularly. All together we have a great collection of pictures on this site.
I sincerely hope the server space will be big enough in the future for all the pictures we post.

Cheers,
Roy

Thanks for your reply Patrick!

You use, quality wise, an equal camera as I have.
Now as I use a Mac I'm not so fond of installing all kind of extra software.
In the meantime I googled it on internet how to do it on a Mac and I found it.
So, time permitting, I will post some pics from now on.

On a different subject how happy are you with your camera and any tricks you use on this style of camera?

Cheers,
Roy

Hi,

Most of you will "know" me as commentary contributor.
I'm however a shipspotter as well. In the past I posted two pics and as I realize I got some interesting pics to share I tried to post some more today. However I have to crop my pictures heavily to get them to the 4000x4000 pixel limitation. So a lot of pictures I'm not able to post as part of the ship will be cropped away.
Now last year i bought myself a new camera (RX-10) which is very nice but nothing special to some high-end camera's I see among the top posters (Exif data). I can't imagine that all of you shoot your pics at a (much) lower resolution than the "best" setting of your specific camera's.
So please explain me what the trick is here to get your pictures down to the 4000x4000 pixel limitation.

Cheers,
Roy

Yes Bob saw that on the ABS website, but don't believe that as it will give a stroke/diameter ratio of a little over 3.6. I tought the G-type has a s/d ratio of more then four. But maybe not for the 95cm model.

Hi Robert,

Did a quick search and found that it has a MAN (B&W) 11G95ME-C9.5 as main engine.
So that's a eleven cylinder with a bore of 95cm and a G-type which means ultra long-stroke.
It has a power of 61530kW (82513 horsepower).

It must be a down-rated engine as an 11G95ME would normally be possible to deliver more then 90000 horsepower (haven't got the exact figures here).

Not sure with how many crew OOCL sails but it won't be a lot different from my company so I guess they sail with around 20 persons.

Cheers,
Roy

btw found the info here:  https://www.eagle.org/safenet/record/record_vesseldetailsmach?ReferrerApplication=PUBLIC
10  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / 20000 TEU Cosco Shipping Taurus launched on: June 16, 2017, 02:29:06 pm
Today the Cosco Shipping Taurus has been launched at Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (CSSC) shipyard.
She is the first 20000 teu containership being built in China.

Now I wonder if she is one of the six vessels originally ordered by CSCL or one of the three vessels ordered by Cosco.
Any info would be appreciated.

If she is one of the six CSCL vessels then the story previously here on the forum is proven not to be true: http://forum.shipspotting.com/index.php/topic,15645.0.html

I counted 24 40ft bays in length what I can see from the pictures and in the press release she is also stated as 400m in length.

Cheers,
Roy

All ships mentioned in the article are in fact the same size. They are all 400m in length (within a meter or two) and 58m in width (within half a meter), more accurately they are all 24 40ft bays long and all 23 containers wide.
This counts in fact for all 18000teu+ container ships There are container ships with 24 40ft long and only 21 containers wide but they are 16000 to 17000 teu (CMA CGM and MSC).

Only the latest ones, i.e. second gen. EEE, the Mol Triumph class and the OOCL HongKong class and all classes still to come have a greater hull depth so they can stack one container higher in the holds.

Then there is of course the "trick" of displacing more air on deck, i.e. stack the containers as high as you can (or at least advertise it that way) to get different TEU figures.

Cheers,
Roy

Certainly Frans. I don't know the details, of course, but I heard the deal wast most in favor of Maersk and MSC and not so for Hyundai.

13  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Hyundai selling to Maersk on: June 10, 2017, 02:18:31 pm
Hi gents,
Of the six vessels of this class three will get a Maersk name and the other three will get a MSC name as follows:
Hyundai Earth          MSC Earth
Hyundai Jupiter        Maersk Suzhou
Hyundai Mars           MSC Mars
Hyundai Neptune     Maersk Shanghai
Hyundai Pluto          Maersk Shenzen
Hyundai Saturn        MSC Saturn
I believe they are all, so called, sub-charters. Which means they are still all six chartered to Hyundai, from Zodiac, and Hyundai is the one who "sub-chartes" them to Maersk and MSC.
Cheers,
Roy

Hi Jan,

I understand your point, and indeed most, or all of the info can be found elsewhere on the internet, if you look/search for it.
On the other hand though a lot of, interesting, info is brought under the attention of the Shipspotting community that otherwise would be left unnoticed for them.

So personally I'm not at all annoyed by Johnny posts, he just brings info under the attention without having to search elsewhere on the internet.

Cheers,
Roy

Container ship Hyundai Speed to be renamed into Maersk Exeter.
