I think Ron is querying the GRIII; as far as I know the GRIII was released in mid March and the TIPA Awards seem to have been announced on 17th March. Assuming the awards were decided a bit before the announcement the Ron is probably rightly questioning if the decision was made prior to the camera coming on the market?

Like you I tend to print on Glossy. I also have an Epson printer and I use the Ilford Galerie paper which gives really good results. I'll state now that I have no experience with their pearl version but the reviews on Amazon Ilford Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl A4 25 sheets: Amazon.co.uk: Amazon.co.uk: seems to suggest that this is every bit as good as their glossy paper

Pentax MZ-5n reading the aperture set on the lens

I bought an MZ-5n a few years back but have finally decided to pop a film into it. I was trying it out to familiarise myself but I was surprised that it displayed a different aperture in the viewfinder to that set on the lens
I tried it with two different zoom lenses (a 28-80mm FA and a 35-80mm F) and in each case it initially showed a smaller aperture in the viewfinder display than the one set on the barrel of the lens. As a test I looked through the viewfinder and slowly zoomed out to the widest focal length and with both lenses I could see the aperture displayed in the viewfinder changing until, at the widest setting, the viewfinder showed the same aperture as the lens.
Given that each lens I tested had a variable maximum aperture am I right in thinking the camera display is showing an 'effective' aperture the lens is at due to the variable aperture and is working correctly?

I think there will always be an proportions of users who will upgrade to the latest version regardless of the condition of the existing kit. It's certainly common with cars.
When I was at college I had a friend who couldn't walk past a camera shop without buying a new camera; handy to know because he ended up selling the earlier camera on very cheaply and you could buy it safe in the knowledge that it was a couple of months old and had one careful owner since new - I got my first serious camera, a Fujica STX-1, this way. But I sort of wished I had held on because he sold a classmate an Olympus OM2 a couple of months later.

given the rates you'll get for news photos you could find this more lucrative as a blackmail shot; especially with two possible payers

that's amazing, it would never have crossed my mind to mount a 110 lens onto a k-mount camera. Does it work solely as a macro lens?

I'm struggling to see any deals at the moment. Looking at Amazon, the prices have either held up or no new lenses are available. I suspect Nikon have learned a lesson and allowed stocks to run down before it became clear the system would be developed no further. A real shame because the J5 has turned out to be a lovely, easy-to-take-anywhere camera

For reasons best known to my laptop this link is refusing to load up but hopefully you can access the k-50 manual in pdf form here http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/man-pdf/k-50.pdf

managed to open this - you should find the relevant instructions on setting a file format (page 142 of the manual)

Can I ask who signed for this? - without sounding daft I presume the weight would have raised suspicions. I hope the situation is getting resolved by the seller.

Brian May and Stereo photography
Posted By Johndav

Went to see guitar genius Brian May at the Edinburgh Book Festival, where he was promoting a book about 19th century stereo photography alongside Roger Taylor (not the drummer).
As well as talking about the work of George Washington Wilson, Brian mentioned his own forays into the world of 3-D photography and a book he published featuring his own stereo images, many of his own group Queen.
Lomography covered this nicely in a post Stereo Photography: An Interview with Brian May Lomography and whilst it doesn't disclose the stereo camera Brian used, you can't argue with his impecible taste in conventional 35mm SLRs
