Re: Salons Award

Not wanting to blow your own trumpet? If it was me I'd be atop the Hilton Hotel in manchester with the biggest, widest, loudest megaphone announcing it to the world :-d . Well deserved and many congratulations.

Re: New Brighton Lighthouse

Superb, just perfect. My favourite is the lower one - good use of the foreground rocks to lead the eye into the scene and directly to the lighthouse which is well separated from the sky. Wonderful colours - competition winners for certain (club and salon).

Re: 30th May 2013 - Auction Night

Walter has informed me that inside the large Lowepro bag he bought was a Gimbal Head and two lens plates of mine which I stupidly didn't unpack to be auctioned off last night. He's kindly offered to meet me next week at ADAPS and return it whereupon I would ask John to announce that it is for sale w...

Re: Need some cheap film

Phil, Can I remind you of a much earlier post when you were looking for some film and possibly to do some of your own developing, etc.. I still have the film and kit intending to sell it on ADAPS auction night with 50% going to club funds - but if you want it before your trip make me an offer - 50% ...

Re: Which Printer?

Shaun, Further to Paul's post above, in which he makes some very good points, the question of 'To print or not to print? That is the question!' (sorry Will Shakespeare) was discussed on this very forum and may give you points to consider - http://www.adapsuk.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2675. Even...

Re: Which Printer?

Shaun, Over the many years I've been printing asking for suggestions as to which is the best paper, printer, ink set, etc., will get you lots of differing opinions. Your ultimate decision will inevitably come down to your budget and what your intentions are with your prints - i.e. for personal use o...

Re: Jessops Set To Go Into Administration

Am I just over suspicious in thinking that Jessops decided to go into liquidation immediately after the busiest shopping time of the year, Xmas? I mean all of those unfulfilled orders and unusable gift cards that they have pocketed large amounts of peoples hard earned cash from - a report on another...

A "shilling" John? My granddad told me about those things - they came into our currency just after 'groats' I believe. Before my time obviously :wink:

Re: Why We Chose our System

Just to update my little set-up with the Fuji X-Series, another reason or two why I moved over from my very large and heavy Nikon kit was the fact that a number of manufacturers have indicated their intention to produce products for the Fuji X series. I've recently bought into two of these and I'm k...

Re: Why We Chose our System

As a long-time Canon and latterly Nikon DSLR user, mixed in with a few 6x7 film cameras, I have recently disposed of my complete Nikon kit and moved entirely over to the Fuji X-Series of mirror-less cameras. Why did I take such drastic action? Purely and simply weight - not my weight but that of the...
