General Comments
Starting last year I decided to get back into photography after leaving it alone for 20 years, so I joined a local club and blended into the background and watched and learned. I purchased a couple of Nikon autofocus SLR's (F55 & F65), but the results were disappointing, then I spotted a Canon A1 on Ebay and took a risk and purchased it for £45. Also included in the sale was a Canon 28mm f2.8 wide angle lens. This combination and the amazing Fujichrome Velvia 50 slide film this year won me (best slide, best colour, and most original slide) a great haul in my first year. I will never part with my A1, but most of all I wish to thank all of you who have switched to digital and helped top quality film gear to be purchased for peanuts.
