  3. Thanks for the link. There are some really good images to be found there.
  4. Just discovered this one: http://www.japancamerahunter.com/tag/photography-zines/ A really good list of photog Books and Magazines.
  5. Sorry Tweaky, not sure if I understand your response. Do you feel that this magazine has that look. All good if you do, just not really sure what you were referencing. The magazine you have referenced seems quite good, very informative. Another magazine/book worth checking out is observations No.1 by Chris Leskovsek. All black and white, but a bit cleaner than the magazine mentioned above. http://chrisleskovsek.com/blog/
  6. This is one of my favourite photog mags: http://www.theinspiredeye.net/pdf-photography-magazine/
  7. Not sure if the Voightlaender lenses have been mentioned but they get a good rap. Being compared very favourably and some times better to Leica Lenses at excellent prices. Just check out the Ken Rockwell and Steve Huff Reviews. If you are not too concerned with manual focusing or hyperfocal these would be outstanding. http://www.voigtlaender.de/cms/voigtlaender/voigtlaender_cms.nsf/id/pa_home_e.html I own small sensor Ricoh GRD iv and and apsc sensor Ricoh GR. The GR is obviously technically better (camera and output) , but I actually prefer the files the small sensor camera puts out, they just have more character and 'mojo'. Saying this though the nex-6 cameras have excellent image output, they have character, and the files are quite malleable in LR. I also really like the output from the Fuji X series cameras, very organic looking, but maybe a little too sharp at times. I'm still trying to decide on the nex-6 and X-E1 for a system camera, new models are coming so you can pick these bodies up really cheap on eBay. FF is another complete barrel of fish. I have not invested a lot of time looking into FF, but FF cameras put out absolutely stunning images, that have that special 'Full Frame look'. They are far out of my budget, so not something I would probably ever consider unless the prices drop.
  8. Sold on eBay
  9. Interesting. Love the colours in that ad .
  10. Woh! Our dollar is really not fairing well against the US.
  11. Price drop to $180 before off for another go on the bay
  12. My suggestion is the compact Ricoh GR with APS-C sensor. It fits in my pants pocket. Has snap focus (zone focusing), where you can predetermine the focus length, also means you are not depending on auto focus. The auto focus is fast though, but not in low light. It has a sharp fixed 28mm (in 35mm terms) lens but the camera also has a 35mm and 47mm crop mode which still produces great prints because of the sensor size. It's also light and very ergonomic. With snap focus and at least 1/125 shutter speed you should be able to get you kids without any blur. No viewfinder but you can add one, at a price though. You can pick one up from cameras direct for around $780. If you really need a zoom my next suggestion beside system cameras is the Sony RX100 compacts. 1" size sensor, and rave reviews all around. I have only handled one in store, and they feel nice, not as good as my Ricoh but still very good.
  13. Thanks Richard I whole heartly agree, just a shame I have not even unpacked my record player for quite a few months.
