    Calling all Sony Alpha users! (Part 2)

    Strange that Jessops would suggest models other than Sony when they apparently have a deal to sell Sony's, saying that I got my (Pucker) Sony assesories from an independant store. From my enquiry experience the level of help and expertese has varied depending on the geographical location of the...

    Calling all Sony Alpha users! (Part 2)

    After taking pictures at St Pauls and getting the tube to take more on the entry into Trafalgar Square I ended up trapped outside the Square and stood on the Strand side behind about 6 rows of people and couldnt even get a look at the podium to take any snaps. But.... :thinking: 1) Out...

    went into jessops, and the Sony ranges are appealing

    I was faced with the same delema a few weeks back and eventually walked into Jessups to get hands on experience of a cannon, but i also tried 3 other makes for comparison. As somebody on here told me ' Go with what feels right and what makes me feel good', that I did and opted for the A300 twin...

    Off to Italy tomorrow - wedding shoot!

    Hacker and Dark Star you both enjoy yourselves and make sure you take some good snaps. I drove To Garda in May for a few days and had a fantastic time but only had a compact camera at the time. At least I got those memory shots that everybody wants to keep. My Garda pics examples

    Early Day Motion started in Parliament regarding street photography

    Remember the days when there used to be close up shots of happy kids faces enjoying street parties or splashing about at the seaside or whatever. We can all look back at these pictures from years ago but does that mean there will now be a void of happy children on record because of the...

    Where did all the hardware come from

    I went to our local air show at Sywell Northants on Sunday 24th taking my newly acquired A300 for its first major test. I have to admit i was stunned at some of the equipment that people have and suddenly produce and I'm not talking about press photographers that were present. I hold my hand...

    Calling all Sony Alpha users!

    Was looking around locally for a battery grip for a Sony A300 even before I bought the camera but started to discovered it seemed to be in short supply and in fact almost only obtainable from a well known Photo chain store with a so call deal with Sony. I could of paid my £170 and waited for...
