inspirational cameras.

Thanks Shirley,

we've just finished collecting the last images from all 105 members of the exhibition project team, and completed our Exhibition Book design - it's a bit overwhelming, to see a 200 page book of such amazing images - all taken with e-system cameras!

We've created an extract of the Exhibition Book to give an idea of the quality of images...
