Pink camera

After seeing the GRD in Blue with the anniversary edition, I wanted to see what it would look like in pink. I think it still looks great :)

Office party

Took along my GRD and RD1s for a few shots last night. Really appreciate a fast lens when the lighting is poor and with iso 800 on the rd1 plus my 1.4 this works very well.

Took this one with the grd1 at the british museum today on a colleagues recommendation. I was walking around with my treasure map and it was fun to discover these odd statues

photography trade show in hammersmith

went to check out the photography trade show today in search of a good a3 printer to buy. We saw a nice epson printer but the chap seemed more interested in talking about my epson RD1 instead :) . The printers were really cool and the quality is great however the downside is it will cost just over 500 quid and 1.2 pounds a copy thereafter to run. There were also a lot of printing companies that do a similar price for a3 so i may just ditch the printer and send my pics in instead.
Just got home and i realise that in the whole day i only took a handful of pics so maybe i need to return tomorrow take more.

Ridiculous demonstration

Yesterday I decided to give my newly repaired GRD1 a spin a situation where I beleive it to be unbeatable, certainly against the RD1 at least : to a demonstration. The weight and size of the GRD as well as the speed at which it can take shots means that those pics that need to be taken in a split of a second are not missed. One thing i should have done is get a decent pair of thin leather gloves because at -3 all day with 2 metal cameras i felt the pain.

I forgot to add I went there as a neutral observer and just wanted an oppotunity to take pictures. The anti-war protest turned to some hate speeches against Israel and pro Hamas. The whole conflict is very complicated and this demonstration was only aimed against one side. Some people were shouting silly phrases without knowing what they were saying. It's very likely that both parties are at fault in this current situation and hatred from both sides is not really going to do much good. 

Anyway, I managed to get some nice pics...
