    Dioptic advice needed please

    Your prescription for your glasses should give an insight and its worth asking your opticians advice as they often come across this issue with customers For what its worth my prescription is for +2 and with both Fuji & Leica diopters +2 was perfect for me.

    Back in time - a film camera

    You can buy complete kits now to process your films at home and in the long run as long as you have a scanner that can scan negatives, its cheap and fun to do.

    The Amazing Sony A7/A9/APS-C & Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    Just in case anyone else is having trouble inputing the date when trying to activate Sony's extended warranty.. Ignore the format it states inline and enter it like this - 2020-05-13 using todays date as an example, entering how it says ie 13/05/2020 or 2020/05/13 doesn't work.

    The Amazing Sony A7/A9/APS-C & Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    18 months between models being significantly upgraded is a joke when your shelling out that much on a camera!! I foresee the S/H market being flooded with A7Riii's knocking the secondhand values of all sony's for six, I'm just glad I got out chasing features & megapixels and turned to the dark...

    Official Talk Leica thread

    Cracking lens with a modern style of rendering, very sharp, superb micro contrast, only just pipped by the modern Summicrons for sharpness. I still have mine even though I now have a Summicron 50mm. In short if you can't afford a "cron then you need the Zeiss. The only downsides are the 43mm...
