    I realized you were talking about the fountain from your reply and another example of 6 secs. exposure,hence I continued talking about it. No issues. It is what it is. Those evenings shots are very enjoyable never the less.SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Tue Jul 07, 2015 9:44 pm

    My mistake. I misread your comment on walkers as water and thought you were referring to the fountain shot. I could have gone from f4 to f2 but I had just snapped a shot of the entire wall and forgot to change it.Statistics: Posted by jbtaylor — Tue Jul 07, 2015 8:18 pm

    Dusty,So very true. Yes, indeed. It is the single card that I acquired recently ( about 4 month ago) that is causing the problem.I am looking for a brand new card. Either 2 32GB or a 64GB is what I have in mind.SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Tue Jul 07, 2015 6:37 pm

    Just had to rescue the images from a card (smaller, but don't remember size) from my sister's a850! If a single card starts acting up, replace it! The images are worth more than the cost of a new card!DustyStatistics: Posted by Dusty — Tue Jul 07, 2015 4:34 pm

Paperback edition of Photoworld 2008-11

We have decided to make a Lulu print-on-demand digitally produced paperback edition covering the last three years of Photoworld magazine, covering the period from the launch of Alpha 900 and photokina 2008, through to the final edition of our quarterly magazine in Summer 2011, when the Alpha 77 was about to hit the streets.

This 312-page book includes the content of 12 editions of Photoworld, each with its cover and contents page, with some advertising and some regular content or ‘diary dates’ removed. A few items like this remain in place, notably Sigma advertisements, because the alternative would be to pay for a blank white page – or they are small ads and part of a larger page layout. We think even these are still of interest for the future.

Some typos and errors have been corrected so this book has more accurate versions of many articles. Some content has been changed, such as the A2 foldout print included in the Autumn 2008 edition to show the quality of the A900 24 megapixel file. As far as we know, Icon Publications Ltd remains the only photo magazine publisher to use the option of a ‘centerfold’. We’ve done it in our professional titles as well, to show medium format quality at its best. But in a digitally printed book, it’s not possible to staple in a 16.5 x 23.75 inch poster. Instead, we’ve used a different choice of a spread and two full page images.

Through this book-form edition, you can track the birth of the NEX system and the death of the optical viewfinder.

The book costs £64.50 – the original three years of magazines would have cost £53.85 absolute minimum (UK annually renewing subscription) and a typical binder costs £10. However, for worldwide customers the overall cost of the magazines over three years plus a binder would have been £90. Digital printing is expensive and we don’t make much on these, but we’ve had Lulu print calendars in the past (2011) with super results and this should be a very good quality book, fairly matching the original litho magazines.
