Re: Why do prints have to be mounted?

Fair enough - I'd forgotten about the large price difference, and thought the move was because the refurbishments were expected each year but kept being deferred (along with the limited & unpredictable exposure, which as you say may or not change in future). The lower cost allowing the exhibitio...

Re: Why do prints have to be mounted?

Club rules merely state that prints for internal competitions should be mounted on card and unframed; there is nothing mandated about size ... Yep, the wording I used was intended to convey that - in technical documentation, "must" is a requirement and "should" a recommendation ...

Re: Why do prints have to be mounted?

There's no specific requirement to mount images all in the same way*, it's just that there's limited practical options. Prints must be mounted on card, and the total size should not exceed 50x40cm, nor cause damage when in a pile. ( * for competitions; however the last few exhibitions have had restr...

Re: Wex Open Day - 11 October 2019

The Open Day is the event?

Maybe Iggy is referring to one of the other events on different days, which require tickets (and payment) to attend, and thus need to be booked via a button in the top right.

Re: BRICKFIELDS MEADOW DOORSTOP GREEN

That's a nice visualisation, though it'd be better without the golf courses. Also a shame it cuts off at the borough boundaries instead of including the nearby parts of Sutton/Bromley/Tandridge.

Re: Replacement lens caps

...the lens cap is coming from Germany. I was hoping I might get lucky - the description currently says "Bischofswerda, Germany / London, United Kingdom", but after finally ordering yesterday I received the dispatch confirmation today, and with an estimate of 10 days I guess it must be co...

Re: But It's £1,200!

The DPR review has a brief comparison against similar devices (half way down the page): https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-cyber-shot-dsc-rx100-vii-review-in-progress/2 It includes the Panasonic ZS200 (TZ200 in UK) which is $400 cheaper than the Sony RX100 VII, but still a significant increase on...

Re: Replacement lens caps

My current best fit theory is that I was abducted by alien beings and it got left on their ship, but they realised too late to do anything about it.

Re: Replacement lens caps

Mine is a 95mm cap, so looks like £4 on ebay for a convenient to use one. There are cheaper ones, but they have small side-pinches which would likely be awkward with the lens hood, and that one still works out at half the total price of the Wex one.

Replacement lens caps

So apparently in between putting my camera in my bag and taking it out again 5 minutes later, my lens cap went AWOL. At the time I thought it'd just dropped off in the bag, but it appears to have done a houdini. Exact replacements are available via various sources for £15-20, but Wex/Calumet do thei...
