“Picture the savings!”

Cost savings can be huge; there are some remarkabl...

Takes time and effort; always the risk of a dud

This is going to be a buying guide with a bit of a difference. I'm not particularly concerned here with giving advice on how to buy a posh, £200-plus compact camera or a DSLR. Instead, I will try to show that it is possible to obtain a very solid camera outfit that will give you very satisfying...

How do I get started in digital photography? This question dogged me for years because I love photography and I could see the world was going digital. I’m also a bit of a gadget-head, so why didn’t I just rush out and buy a digital camera? I didn’t because, 1) Which camera? The...

Snap ~ Snap ~ what do you get; picture perfect is what you get. After searching high & low for a modern camera I finally bought myself a flashy top of the range Toshiba digital. It was time for my old & out-dated conventional camera to make way for my new digital Toshiba M81. Since the launch of...

“Pick a camera, any camera.”

published 16/02/2003

Large amount of flexibility in current market

Too many new cameras, not enough money!

We are in a great time for photography at the moment. Especially if you don't buy digital. Yep, although film isn't trendy any more, and you won't impress your neighbours with your tech-smart megapixels and USB chit-chat, there is still a lot of life left in the "old beast" yet. Emulsions are...

published 23/07/2008

Cheaper than digital

processing costs

Each type of camera has their own

Each type of camera has their own

First of all, I'm not a good photographer by any stretch of the imagination but over the past couple of years I have travelled quite extensively and found that the camera I needed was not necessarily the one I took with me. I have travelled to Africa, Southeast Asia and America and found that...

Going Digital on a budget. You only get what you pay for is a euphemism or sort of proverb that has almost become a by word in today's profit driven world. Everywhere you look you will see advertisements for products from the well known and more expensive manufacturers. Take a look at the...

Really Helpful

Nothing that I can think of

Getting a good camera is like buying a good car! You want to get the best out of your equipment, and a camera that will suit your needs, or the needs of your family depending on how many will be using it. When I had decided on what I wanted from a camera I had started to phone around the...
