I have the SW45 and never have any problems with not having enough tilt when using a 150. Remember that if you want to go longer you can always use the 452 extension back.

Left- or right- eyed?

Did anyone catch the program 'Seven photographs which changed the fashion world' on Sunday evening? During the program we saw that both Rankin and David Bailey are left-eyed. To me this looks plain wrong - so I was wondering what the ratio of left- to right- eyed people is! [edit] Apologies to those...

I've always liked to support RW - but a recent purchase (of one of those cameras we don't talk about here) would have been over £450 more expensive buying from RW than alternate sources (eBuyer and Amazon). I don't mind paying for the service I get from RW when I need it (like when being out on loca...

Some more thoughts... Velvia and Provia will push/pull by a stop without any bother, so if you have a second sheet from your shot and the exposure isn't quite to your liking you can compentaste a little when it comes to development (Joanna - following your lead can we call this 'soup time' now?). I ...

Also remember that most people rate 'Old' Velvia 50 as ISO 40 or even 32.

I've not exhausted my stock of Old 50 (really should make space for food in the freezer!) so can't comment on the new!

:lol: What a wonderful TLA! Unfortunatley I can't claim credit for that - it came from David Ward who says he could make a fortune selling inflateable ones!

I see the asymetrics offered by the SU as a mere convenience to be used when the photographer deems that they would help form the image they are envisaging. If your individual style is to use a JCB* which is exaggerated in perspective - then assym rear tilts will help you achieve this affect. Withou...

Hi George,

It might be worth giving Newton and Ellis in Liverpool a call - I've heard good things about them on other forums.
