Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

This is a cracking speech by our future Prime Minister, Michael Gove. It’s sure to go down in history and it won’t be too surprising if Comrade C was sorry he instigated a vote of no confidence....

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The trouble with Comrade Corbyn is that he’s a very angry disruptive politician who shouts persistently. Anyone behaving like that in business would be kicked out of meetings, and ultimately sacked.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

You've somehow forgotten Tony Blair, closely followed by Gordon Brown. They would undoubtedly be number one and two on the all time worst PMs.

Re: How to Post Photos?

Re: Weirdest SALE

Re: Weirdest SALE

Due to the light source the 7xx series have a longer warm up time.

I'm rather keen to get into Holga 120, and maybe instant film, so a flatbed scanner would be ideal for me. I'm currently using a...

Re: Weirdest SALE

V700/V750 and V800/V850 have minor changes as far as I'm aware, such as cold cathode v LED. The 8xx's have twin lens but I'm not sure about the 7xx series. Many are happily using the 7xx film holders...

Re: Weirdest SALE

Park Cameras have the V800 for a tad more at £449, with free delivery. That's new, not second hand, but as you intimated the later Epson neg holders aren't up to much, so the all-up cost would go up...

Re: Norwich to London - Holga plastic lens

The results from the 'toy'* Holga sit somewhere between full-on pinhole and that from a 'proper' lens. Fantastic work AMc!

Re: A snap off a bridge...
