  • The release of the Nikon V3 camera has led me to come to the conclusion, that one of the problems of the MIL-cameras is the high expectancy. These cameras are to be compact, offer a high level of...
  • We , of course , had the Jessops closures in recent years , with the company downsizing in a futile effort to survive , before going bust . Some commented that they got what they deserved since...

  • Replied in Only in the USA

  • Change your plans. 2 or 3 days is not enough time to test a film camera and get the film back. Don't ruin your friend's wedding. There are still plenty of places which do 1 hour processing - here...
  • If you haven't used medium format before then either a Pentax 6x7 , or something like a Hasselblad with pentaprism will be the least of a culture shock for you ( getting used to a waist level...

  • I'm not trying to be a MILC evangelist, really, but I wouldn't limit the choice to a DSLR. Chances are if the camera is to big to lug around she won't take it as often as she would like to. These...
