Leica FFS!

Wow - my SonCaNikonPus could do with some help! Should it be called LeiSoCaNikonPus or SonCaNikonPusCa?

Glass is where it's at ;)

Well, yes, from the Nikon or Canon fans, but there's been an increase in other makes being suggested as more people get into DSLRs these days.

I still think it's a valid option for a thread, rather than lose it in the general noise of discussion.

I would maybe open it up further, beyond the camera - there is a far greater variety of lenses, tripods, monopods, filters etc and enough to confuse anyone when it comes to handing over the cash.

Maybe substitute camera for equipment?

My suggestion was just a joke by the way if anyone missed it. I've got a Samsung GX10 (Pentax K10D). At the price point when I bought it - and wanted a twin lens kit - most suggestions of what to buy were typically Nikon D40X or Canon 450D. After looking at some reviews and listening to non-NiCan fans I went against the grain. Glad I did too!

Depending on how x404.co.uk develops outside of the forum, I was considering asking saspro about setting up a gallery page, possibly using flickr images from the pool. It's pretty trivial to do using the flickr API.

That's quite a brilliant idea!

Or my preferred response having thought about it a bit during my recent coach trip - 'It doesn't matter.'

I agree Edd, think this is an excellent idea. Maybe not an instant possibility but definatly something for the future.

Yes, certainly I was thinking long-term, once things have settled down and we can start expanding outwards a bit.

Now this is something the Dennis forums didn't have! A dedicated photography forum. Maybe this should be the new home of the monthly competition too??


Like me, I just submitted my first picy but would rarely come to this area to be honest, sorry guys. :oops:

Although its rare for me not to look at the entries, I suppose its back to the cross over argument about the meeting place's value being that all areas used it.
