    Thumbs up Des Plaines Camera Club

    The Des Plaines Camera Club is both a real group, as well as virtual Yahoo group, here in Des Plaines and on the Internet. It is composed of both professional, amateur and new camera owners (even some non-camera owners - people who are looking for advice on prospective cameras).

    I recently was invited to join and have. There is a tremendous knowledge base among these members, based on hundreds of years of combined experience mostly in film, as you might expect, but also in digital. The club is composed of members having all sorts of manufacturer's cameras, including, but not limited to, 35mm-film, medium format, stereoscopic, land cameras, instants, P&S, digital SLR, etc.

    Topics include process tips, discussion, mini-contests, assignment work and contest participation with other camera clubs in the area. There are occasional guest speakers to offer interesting topics to the membership and guests.

    I joined in an effort to see what others were doing with their art and I just may be the only SONY DSLR owner in the bunch, as I have not spent a lot of time with the group as yet (perhaps it would make sense to suggest a poll, to see what kind of camera system everyone is using).

    As we have tried to do, with limited success, the Club suggests monthly assignment work to help focus the photographer on composition, subject matter and technique. The submitted images are then shown at one of semi-monthly club meetings, on a projection screen, and commented upon for points of interest and improvement.

    For me, it is more of a social meeting, to exchange ideas on how people are dealing with issues in this hobby. Being a pretty private fellow, it is a departure from my usual grind.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Here is an Eyelash Pit Viper. Not very big but very venonous.

    May I just say version .1's WB sucks big time. Gonna put it through it's paces sometime this week and post up some ISO results and comparisons with the A300.

    dr4gon,

    I must say that I was not really interested in the A700 at all. I was trying to decide on Nikon or Canon and make the switch. Then I found something about the v4 update, and how much improvement was made in v4. So I bought it, based off of the updates. I agree with others that there are more things that they can do, but overall am satisfied with the A700 v4.
