Hi from a newbie in Devon


Link Posted 29/08/2012 - 23:47
As if to demonstrate that I am not the sharpest file in the Photoshop, I'm not even sure if this is the 'correct' way to introduce myself.

Now based in the South Hams bit of Devon, the scenery of which has re-awakened my spasmodic affair with the camera, and retirement has given the time to indulge, so they tell me. Have just acquired a collection of second hand equipment - a K5(a close fight between it and the Sony A77), and two Sigmas, a 17-70mm and a 10-20mm
(I'm a landscape man primarily) plus a collection of spare batteries, cards, a remote, some pl and nd filters etc. and a Red Snapper tripod. So an over-equipped, greenhorn suffering from wallet abuse and waiting for inspiration to strike. Meanwhile coming to terms with the amazing abilities of the modern camera and of Photoshop.

Finally I'm not sure of the rules or the method of asking questions, or of offering a film camera for sale. Any advice gratefully received

Just ask away, if the post belongs in another section we can always move it for you.

There's a Classified Ads section in the forum, just start a new thread for your sales, preferably with images of the items for sale.
Best regards, John
