new to the site and just seen this section so thought id pop in and ask if there is any clubs in nuneaton? as i am really intrested in photography but find it hard to get the right advice ect.
also i know that there is one in bulkington but feel alittle bit worried about going on my own :D before i know anyone (being the big girls blouse that i am ;) ) i guess i could always drag along someone *wanders away to look at her phone book* ;)

Hi Claire!

I don't know of any in Nuneaton, but our Cathi goes to one in Bedworth, that might be worth a look at. There's a post she made in this section somewhere.

Welcome to the forums. :)

I'm a pointNclickaholic. Rather than focus on a few good, well structured or arty piccies I tend to pointNclick... but then you can with digital... then delete any that don't make the grade, unlike films. You pay for developing then see things. It's all fun and good for reflecting upon later.

I do a bit. I've mainly got SLR film cameras, mainly canon, but also a old practica and a pentax.
Only just getting in to digital.

I sold all of my developing and printing stuff on e.bay last year and with the dosh bought a Canon slr digitalwhich is my pride., altho' I kept my pentax film camera. The first 'real' slr was a Zenit B which I still have "sentimental"-a completely manual heavy Russian job, which still takes good pics. but I have to use a light meter
But last week I bought- for a friend- a Minolta 7000, complete with 2 lenses
flashgun ,bag -the lot for 20.00. Now my friend has changed his mind about it -doesn't want it -so this weekend I hope to try it outwith a slide film.
Idon't believe film cameras will ever die out.The otherweek Iwent to Focus at the N.e. c and was pleasantly surprised to see all of the new papers and films being launched.
My darkroom days are over but not film which can now be sent for development and then printed on the computer.
