THE READING ROOM – NEWS & THINGS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED (WEEK 27: 1ST-7TH 2019)

I’ve had a busy week selling my old house so sorry no posts in between these round ups. However this week we have some cameras you probably have never heard of, a bargain hunt in Sydney, award winning shots and either the restoring or murder of a Nikon. There’s also some good news for you DIY D&P folk, a hack to give you cheap Xpan fun and a critical take on that hip film. Pull up a chair.

But we also manage to squeeze in a serious scam warning, some ideas for shooting slide and possibly the weirdest accessory you’ve ever seen.
