  • Interesting Charlie, my Dad was left handed and when he went to school they forced him to write with his right hand, he finished up being a 1st Class Carpenter and always used his saw and other...
  • Hi there, ┬ácannot remember to much camera bashing going on until the first showing of 35mm autofocus cameras in the early 80s, before that most if not all equipment was greeted with enthusiasm. I...
  • I guess when it comes to viewfinders its to each his or her own but for me a camera without an eye level finder is a pathetic excuse for a camera, sort of like putting a pudding in the oven half...
  • Darn it I am going to rain on every manufacturer and camera that doesnt have an eye level finder, Ok I have a couple of Kodaks without an EVF and I guess I keep them because of the great colours, I...
  • Thanks for the review, bad move not having an eye level viewfinder but to me the biggest problem is the price, at 249 quid that equates to roughly $450au, for that kind of money a Nikon or Canon...
  • Replied in i gave up
    Unusual but quite pretty photos Keith, as you say the Kodaks did their job.
  • Hi Charlie, I think we have all bought things thinking we need them but we dont, I like your photos they look pretty OK, thinking about lights my dear wife turned her bedside lamp on in the caravan...
  • Thanks for the heads up on the Sanyo batteries Charlie, I havent used Nicads for years but some of the NiMH jobs available today are not worth two bob.
  • Replied in i hope
    All lovely photos Keith, Taunton really puts on a great show by the look of those
  • I think they came out very well Chiue, a beautiful car indeed, sadly car desiners of today lost the plot with most Japanese and Korean cars that mostly look the same, eg Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi...
  • Replied in can -can
    Beautiful flower Keith, dont know much about ladies lifting dresses but that C875 colour is stunning. Love the music from the can can written by Offenbach.
  • Looks like you backed a winner Keith, lovely sharp pics with nice colour, for me the best test for Canon colour is rolling hills with fields, IMO Canon was always a bit of a let down with its...
  • Replied in color choice
    All beautiful cars Keith that ugly looking red thing in the last two pictures is totally outclassed by the others, my choice is the red mini, brg mgb and the winner is the Mk3 Zephyr coz I am an...
  • Well done Keith, unlike naughty Charlie you were a good boy, nice series of shots.
  • Beautiful pin sharp pictures with beautiful Kodak colour, nice to see you using your great new camera.
  • Hi Chiue, like James said beautiful spot, for me shot number three is the winner, classic Kodak color.
  • HaHa Trish and I are still laughing about your in the mind photo Charlie, just as well you didnt take it as its pretty hard getting up witha 300 pound female sumo wrestler sitting on top of you,...
  • Pull over driver, Charlie you are a naughty naughty boy lol Or maybe just a desperado photographer that pushes the boundaries, either way its an interesting shot but I have to say you are gamer...
  • Lovely shot Jarrod, it shows that beautiful classic Kodak colour. I never had a z740 but have owned their cousins, z650, z710, and the aweful P712 which IMO was the worst Kodak ever made, all the...
  • Sorry Charlie boring dull old Dave never got into that abstract stuff, my life was abstract enough without pictures, have to say I do like the photo you posted, pretty coooool.
