Nikon D3000


http://www.trustedreviews.com/digital-cameras/review/2009/10/22/Nikon-D3000-Digital-SLR/p1
Image thanks to my Linkedin mate Ken Rockwell - no doubt he'll be chasing for payment to support his family once he spots his review here as well!

Back to the camera, I've not been able to do a full review as I have only had about 1/2-an-hour hands on at work, it is a "demo" camera so I'm unable to take it home since a certain incident with a D3X last summer.
But my first impression is: "Great, what a lovely uncluttered back with not too many buttons," and "Simple controls + dial on top."
Like the D40, 40X, D5000, D60 it will not focus with non-AFS lenses, but then some of my best ever pictures such as: "Steve Hislop Crashing in World Superbikes" were taken using old manual lenses, in that case a Tokina 300mm/2.8 on a film camera, as the motorbikes moved at some speed there were no 2nd chances. At that time I'd been photographing motorsports regularly for eight years.

Calumet & Photographic Societies Convention 2010

Societies’ Convention 2010

Posted: 18 Nov 2009
Societies’ Convention sold out - The Societies’ Convention bucks the recession with its trade show sell-out.
The Societies Convention LogoThe Societies’ Convention, to be held in January 2010, now has 250 imaging companies signed up and will be the biggest Convention The Societies' has ever held. There are also 150 speakers booked for Convention. The trade-show element is free as long as you pre-register before 8th January 2010.

Press Release:

Two hundred and fifty imaging companies have signed up to fill the trade area of Europe’s biggest ever photographic convention in January.

The Societies’ week-long Convention starts at London’s Novotel, Hammersmith on January 12th 2010 – and it’s already set to break all records.

Said The Societies’ CEO Phil Jones: “This will be the biggest Convention we have ever staged. And now the three day trade show element (Jan 15-17) is completely sold out. We may be in a recession but the entire industry is looking to the future - and for many it starts at this show.

Jon Cohen, Fuji Business Group Manager said: “This is a great jump-start for The New Year. The Societies’ Convention provides us with a central point interface where I can put Fuji staff in front of customers to talk about their businesses and how our products can help them. Being able to meet customers in this way is a real winning combination. We will be using the show to preview new products like the ASK-2500 high speed dye sublimation printer.

Calumet Photographic spokesperson Natasha Hatwell added: “We’ll have a dedicated team of imaging experts providing customers with expert advice and help and we will be showcasing products from our key suppliers .We always have a sharp focus on this event.”

Chris Kay, Marketing Manager at Loxley Colour said: “The Convention is a key show for Loxley Colour and we will be showcasing very latest products and services like our new Dynamo Press online marketing solution for photographers. We’ll also have a brand new range of albums and other lifestyle products unique to Loxley Colour.

One hundred and fifty speakers have been booked for the Convention, including international imaging heavyweights Jerry Ghionis, Kevin Kubota, Charlie Waite, Mark Cleghorn, Damian McGillicuddy and Trevor and Faye Yerbury.

The Societies will run over 350 Masterclasses; over 12 hours of exclusive Business School workshops and over forty hours of free seminars and demonstrations.

The Trade Show element of the Convention is free as long as visitors pre-register online before January 8th 2010. For more details and ticket options for The Societies’ 2010 Convention visit theSWPP website.

Guardian - 100 Years of Great Press Photographers

Today's Guardian includes a supplement 100 years of great press photographs the 1970s. Images such as Eamonn McCabe's Table Tennis player from 1978 are printed.
Other photographers such as Alex Webb (Magnum) and Mick Rock have pictures included in this neat little retrospective.
Among the photographers I'd forgotten was Stanley Forman's image of a mother and child falling five floors from a Boston apartment block when the fire escape collapsed. The image won him a Pulitzer Prize and helped tighten up Boston's fire regulations. I have reproduced the image from the Guardian below:

This picture is also used by Harold Evans in "Pictures on a Page" in (the former Sunday Times Editor's) his own musings on the much maligned decisive moment. Stanley Forman was using a motor driven 35mm camera but remembered thinking I don't want to see them hit the ground and turned away before the moment of impact. The mother died but the child's fall was broken by her mum's body and she survived.
I was first shown "Pictures on a Page" by Stuart Blair, a photographer on the weekly Kidderminister Shuttle where I was doing a brief work experience 15 years ago. It should still be the bible for all aspiring photojournalists.

Above Scotland

The information and article below is taken from Edinburgh, Photographic Bookshop Beyond Words

Above Scotland - The National Collection of Aerial Photography

Beyond Words, 42 Cockburn Street on Thursday 5 November, 6.30 pm

Our next book event will be the launch of Above Scotland: the National Collection of Aerial Photography to be held at Beyond Words, 42 Cockburn Street on Thursday 5 November, 6.30 pm. The Royal Commission of Ancient and Historical Monuments in Scotland holds the national collection of aerial photography with millions of images dating from the 1920s to the present day. These photographs – many of which have never been seen before by the public – tell the remarkable story of a changing nation, from stone circles, Roman remains and ruined castles, to the growth of villages, towns and cities, the rise and fall of heavy industry, the country at war and the proud engineering and architecture of the modern landscape. For the first time in one volume, RCAHMS has brought together the finest images from its collection in a stunning illustration of Scotland’s past, present and future.

Co-author David Cowley will give an audio-visual presentation to celebrate the launch of this new title. This event is free event but, in order to guarantee a place, please email info@beyondwords.co.uk



Why Film Might be Better

At home in Peebles we are waiting for two films sent to Peak Imaging by my step-son. There's a palpable sense of anticipation in the household, as we wait for the postman (the strike helps!!).
Waiting for results from a mail order processor is much more fun than just glancing at an LCD screen often at the time of snapping an image.
Using film encourages proper camera work as the photographer aims to make the best possible exposure and thus minimise costs.
Although I have been away from Calumet for more than five weeks, this summer there seemed to be a noticeable increase in customers buying both 35mm, 120 and 5 x 4 film.
Could it be that people are becoming tired with the big camera companies bringing out more and more models? Which always have more megapixels than the last but also invariably, especially at the top end of the market, demand an investment of a few thousand pounds.
A Rolleiflex like that pictured left, made in the 1950s, more than 60 years ago will produce just as good results as a 40 Megapixel back and is available second hand for a fraction of the price.
The results on 8 x 8 prints or even 5 x 5 prints are always a joy to view from the Rolleiflex. The colours, using films which were not available when the camera was made knock spots of most digital cameras.

Leica M


The Leica rumour mill is running at full speed with the imminent launch of the M9 full-frame rangefinder camera.
This has led to some of my work colleagues discussing the joy of holding such a beautiful optical instrument as the Leica camera in all its forms. For many photographers it is a dream to own a Leica, however, during four years with an M5 alongside my Nikon F100, I rarely picked up the German gem preferring the rugged reliability and ease of use of the Nikon SLR.
Loading a film in the Leica is a pain, while it may have been a good system at the camera's birth, 50 years later it was anything but simple compared to dropping a roll in the Nikon and pressing the button for autowind.
Yes the rangefinder focusing system is dead accurate but so is an SLR combined with its own electronic rangefinder for manual focus. The lenses are wonderful but so are most Japanese optics whose build is based on German optical secrets exchanged during the Second World War.

Kodachrome

Recently I discovered colour transparencies of my mum and dad's wedding, in North Wales, shot in February 1962 on Kodachrome. This led to some detective work to discover the picture's origin.
Most amazingly during my parent's lifetime we were never shown these pictures, there are only about 20 in a slide tray. Immediately I discovered them questions popped up in my mind as to who had taken the pictures. They did not appear to be the work of the wedding photographer as his were all in black and white, which is typical for the period.
A chance conversation with an aunt revealed that she had owned a Leica, bought on my father's recommendation, he had a Semi-Prince, which I think took 645 images on 120 film. During his wartime service in the far east in the RAF he always hankered after a Rolleiflex but probably the camera was too expensive for a sergeant.
Another conversation with my father's cousin, John, disclosed that he also owned a pre-war Leica IIIB and Zeiss Ikonta, he shot b/w on the Zeiss and slides on the Leica, but was not at the wedding, he thought an uncle might have taken the shots.
I became interested in photography at the age of 9, after being introduced to darkroom craft by a teacher at school.
Strangely my father never told me of his own fascination with photography from wartime until the late 1950s. An album has also turned up of trips that he made to Europe and northern Scotland. The pictures are perfectly presented in photo corners and have captions on the back, the album must have taken some time to complete.
The slides were perfectly exposed and the colours are still as good today as on the day they were shot. This is a strong argument for using this now discontinued material for colour work.
I plan to have the pictures scanned and will upload one in the future...........

A burglar's Calling Card: why not everything on the internet is free

Original Article as it appears on Kate Day's Telegraph Blog (Note that below the post she has a "Share This Button" I have placed the whole article in quote marks as it is exactly as written by Kate Day on http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk:

"This morning I arrived at my desk to discover that someone had published a photo of mine on their blog without my permission. The blogger had left me a comment on the to tell me where they had put the picture and had linked to my original image from their blog. Should I be flattered that they liked the photo or is it, a bit like a burglar leaving a calling card?
I would be very surprised if this blogger set out to infringe my copyright. It seems much more likely that he wasn’t clear about the law and while ignorance is no defense, no one likes to be one of those bores who can point out all the ways you might have inadvertently broken the law.
Equally, I spend a lot of time and a fair amount of money trying to get my pictures as good as they can be so I’m not thrilled about the prospect of someone running Google ads against my work without my approval. There are plenty of other ways to tell me if you like a picture after all!"
"Like a true devotee of social media, I asked my Twitter followers
Some were adamant that I should ask for the blog post to be taken down to avoid setting a precedent that I was happy for people to infringe my copyright. Others thought it was best to take it as a compliment, especially as the blogger had linked back to my original photo. Christian Payne, who happened to be one of the subjects of the photo, felt that the picture wasn’t contributing anything to the conversation either about the picture itself or about Christian’s interview with Nick Clegg that I had photographed, and therefore I should ask the blogger not to use it. A few asked if it was OK to use other people’s pictures as long as you attributed the photos to them (it isn’t). Online etiquette and copyright law collided in confusion.
I decided to leave a comment pointing out that the image was “all rights reserved”. This afternoon, the blogger took the picture down, deleted his first comment on my Flickr page and left another comment to let me know he’d pulled the post. So politeness won the day.
I would still argue that social media is worth risking piracy for but I did switch off the “Blog this” option on my Flickr account to make it just a little bit harder for someone to post a picture of mine to their blog."

James Gunn - Canon EOS Magazine

A CAITHNESS photographer has received award recognition for his work – a little over a year after starting up his own part-time photography business.

The latest edition of Canon's EOS Magazine carries a full-page feature of Halkirk-based James Gunn's work – including action shots taken at last year's UK All Star Wrestling event held in Wick Assembly Rooms.

The keen snapper has also won himself three gold awards in the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers' monthly contest.

Striking images of Eden Court Theatre in Inverness and an artistic portrait of Dunnet beach have proved popular with judges. The photos have appeared in Professional ImageMaker magazine and will qualify for the finals of the SWPP UK Photographer of the Year competition, due to be held in London in January.

James told the John O'Groat Journal: "I sent a selection of photos to the EOS Magazine after my photos got rave reviews from the wrestling organisers, who had kindly given me unrestricted access around the ring.

"I'm particularly chuffed as it was my first ever attempt at taking indoor action photos.

"I was even more pleased when I learned that I will receive a £100 voucher for Jessops, the camera shop."

In recent months the photographer's study of a neighbour's Highland cow has featured in the popular PhotoPlus magazine, while the winter edition of the Scottish Rugby Union's TEAMtalk newsletter carried an action shot of a Caithness Rugby Club player on its front page.

James is a member of Thurso Camera Club – which meets twice a month from September to April – and puts his success down to what he has learned since he joined three years ago.

He added: "I tend to concentrate on sport action photos and so my success in other subjects has come as a bit of a surprise."

Jessops


Workers face the axe tomorrow (July 3rd) as loss making camera retailer Jessops closes the shutters on some of its most experienced workers.
In one branch three workers with more than 43 years experience in the photo-trade between them will be made redundant with most other staff put on short-time.
Other staff face having their hours cut from 36 to 24 or even 12 and say they will have to look for alternative work.
Perhaps soon more Jessops stores will look like this one (right).
