    The death of analogue photography.

    Well one way of looking at it is (assuming you didn't pay top money new) e.g. my Canon T90 cost me £60 and bought it 6 years ago, so if the electronics last another 4 years that would mean I've had the use out of it costing £6 per year. Even tight wad me thinks that's cheap for a great camera...

    Show us yer film shots then!

    You are right there are many types from the beginning when there was just c50 andd c90 (erm my dodgy memory) even on the net there is one now at 125cc...over 1 million super cubs sold around the world. And another miss for the British motorcycle manufacturers to be the first.

    Would it have been the C90, 90cc? The C50 was the 50cc and had amazing power from a small engine as with a pillion you could drive around..well dunno about hills.

    Anyone old enough to remember the Honda C50, one of the best bikes Honda made for city travel and could take a pillion as well....well I had two many moons ago and nearly bought one at the bootie a couple of years ago as it would have been great just poodling along country lanes looking for nice...

    and a photo on film ;) I should have kept it as I sold it for £75 about 1969... T110 and top part of the tank I had professionally painted was a lovely blue and the rest of the bike was silver colour.

    All things horticultural photo & discussion thread.

    In the old days our local council dump...the guys used to keep all the good stuff seperately and earn spare cash selling them and my father and me used to buy many mowers, as a hobby, very cheap, get them working and try them out to use as my father was also a working gardener. Now I saw a...

    Home Grown - A Project by Carl

    Well yes but I meant all gardeners here starting their own thread only about gardening ;)..IMO it's best to keep it one thread as after all the site is talk photography.

    Grumpy Southerners, photos and discussion thread.

    Well we better show some shots to keep the mods happy o_O this must be the most miserable\grumpy person you could meet:- Ok they are crappy snaps with Ozeck 70-250 but..

    Example shots from different films.

    Good idea but I'm not much help as most of my VG (well to me) shots are on film you can't buy now:( also it has been shown that on the right subjects even cheap film (some you can still buy like Vista 200) can looks as good as expensive film which would confuse newbies.

    Spot meters - any decent, but inexpensive options?

    o_O Carl is to have this thread only for himself and not share with the great unwashed? This would mean every gardener here starting his\her own thread. :rolleyes: ..and don't think admin\mods would like it, but it looks like they don't mind just the one (Carl's) so far.

    Just some general advice re: 35mm film please

    Just AAMOI when I went mainly back to 35mm from medium format about 8 or 9 years ago (another story).. bought 100 rolls of Superior 200 (in date) for £35 and found it was an excellent all rounder film, well Superia 400 is a more modern film but you can't buy Superia 200 now and the logic is:-...

    Just a point about the BBC link:- I do find it useful for wind direction (bonfires) and visibility and for interest to us for scenery, that is it quite rare to get "excellent" and "very good" is still a bit hazy for long distance part of your scene... and to me it does ruin many scenic shots...
