    Interesting topic which I am following, I guess as its been said we all have our own priorities concerning camera performance, sensors can end up making you paranoid as seen on some other forums. I currently have and old 10 mp Olympus E-510 with the rather good F/2.8 14-54 zoom, a A-37 with kit lens, […]

    Actually I'm not the one to bring up the DxO claims about sensors for the latest M43 cameras.However I'm now going out to do a tour of the local garden centers to see if I can find a couple of showy Bouganvillaea for the courtyard part of the garden.Statistics: Posted by peterottaway — Sat Dec […]

    I agree with what you wrote. You are the one who brought up sensors though:peterottaway wrote:And the Canon is still rather more expensive around here than the Sony, even though the Canon has simply an adequate sensor.So that is why I responded with some info concerning sensors. It has been a long time since I […]

    Everyone has their own list of priorities and acceptable levels of compromise - personally I would go for the Nikon D 7xxx family over the D 5xxx because the 7's are able to use the older screw lenses, to others this doesn't matter. And yes in terms of convenience a modern M43 with its somewhat […]

Photoclubalpha meeting – Edinburgh March 22

EDINBURGH PHOTOWORLD DAY

A Photoworld Day has been arranged for Sunday 22nd March in the premises of the Edinburgh Photographic Society at 68 Great King Street, Edinburgh. Athough primarily aimed at subscribers to Photoworld, former Minolta Club members and users of Sony digital cameras, the meeting is open to others interested in photography.

Doors will be open from 10.00am, with coffee served until 10.30 am. The meeting will run from 10.30am until around 4.00-4.15pm, with a one hour break for lunch. Packed lunches can be eaten on the premises for those not wishing to go out.

The cost of the meeting is £4.00, payable on entry, and no prior booking is necessary. A map/directions can be sent, on request, to those not familiar with central Edinburgh. In Great King Street, there are no Sunday parking restrictions, even in residents’ bays – this does not apply in surrounding streets.

THE PROGRAMME

ALAN THOMSON (Edinburgh) – Alan is senior designer for the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and has been photographing zoo animals for the last 18 years. His presentation will highlight zoos as venues for photography and he will include tips and techniques for making the most of a visit.

PAUL MURPHY (Cramlington) – An enthusiastic member of Cramlington Camera Club, Paul will show dramatic images take in his native Northumberland and further afield as well as describing some of his current photographic projects and aspirations.

DUNCAN McEWAN – a presentation comprising a selection of images, mainly landscape, taken in Scotland and New Zealand using Sony Alpha 100 and Alpha 900 equipment.

DAVID KILPATRICK – Editor of Photoworld. David will have all the latest information about the Sony DSLR system and have an A700 and A900 on hand. He will also demonstrate the Sony HD digital projector EW5 which he describes as “the ultimate tool for viewing and discussing photos”.

CRITIQUE SESSION

This year the critique session will be restricted to Digital Images only. You are invited to submit a maximum of 5 digital images for appraisal or which demonstrate camera features, techniques, or simply images you wish to share. Depending on the response, the number may have to be restricted to 3, so you may wish to number your images in order of priority. Images must be in jpeg format with maximum pixel dimensions of 1024 (horizontal) x 768 (vertical) at 72dpi. Images must be submitted in advance, by email or on CD to me at the above address. Please mark your CD or email to indicate that the images are for the Photoworld Day.

Any offers of help on the day will be greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing you on 22nd March.

Yours sincerely
Duncan I McEwan (Regional Organiser)

    Hi, Can anyone help me with advise on a plug or cord I can use to power an A350 through the DC in port without having to buy a additional charger which is not required if powering it from another source?
