Regional Repair Centre - http://regionalrepaircentre.co.uk/ repairs all makes of camera
Whilst they can repair any make of camera, their USP is that they can repair all types of Sony camera regardless of age and are the only independent agent in the UK authorised to repair Sony Alpha products. They normally charge a £30 inspection fee (that is deducted from the cost of the repair if you choose to go ahead), however they have said that they could provide a unique discount code to quote when calling them to have this fee waived. Consequently, if your have any favourite pieces of Sony kit lying around that they would like fixed or serviced then they can post them and get a quote for free.
Their phone number is 0121 789 9991

Off the Tourist Trail
AT THE CLUB IN OCTOBER
Competition: 1st Print. Judge: Mike Allport.
Submit images for themed competition:
The theme for this year is 'Time'. Members can submit two digital images on the theme, which will be judged separately and not as a pair. Club Rules apply as regards age and size of images. The Competition is on 31st October, and will be judged by John Tully.
Guest Speaker: Pamela Wright – ‘India - off the Tourist Trail’
Competition: Themed Competition. Judge: John Tully
ARE YOU UPTODATE WITH THE COMPETITION RULES ?
The revised version has a change to image sizes.
Projected digital images must be in the following
size and format:
They must be sized to
1400 x 1050 pixels maximum for landscape format and
must be sized to
1050 pixels maximum height for portrait format and
1050 x 1050 for square format
They must be on JPG files
WHEN LESS IS MORE
When colour is removed from the equation monochrome images can be much more powerful.
Bob Craig and John Tully demonstrated how the use of filters, in camera, in photoshop or hustorically in processing in the darkroom can dramatically alter the effect achieved.
AS LONG AS ITS
BLACK AND WHITE
Guest Speakers Mick Howe and Edward Foster gave an excellent presentation of their images in glorious monochrome.
