    Most full auto compacts from the big manufacturers (pentax/olympus/canon) will be good enough in actual use. Don't get bogged down in chasing certain features like a 2.8 prime or aperture priority

    Until them just keep using the mju until it dies, theyre much more resilient than the Contax/yashica ripoffs

    Yeah given that you can get useable images 6-7 stops over exposed with certain stocks im not sure I need to use a lightmeter with my GW690

    Mostly pics of my mates. Not the kind of thing I want to lug tripods around for. For long exposures i would probably just wedge the camera against a rock/wall or something.

    I like using SLRs over compacts during the day if I have the ability to lug one around (M body pentax and 40mm 2.8 is just a glorified manual focusing compact really), but annoying that it basically becomes useless past the afternoon

    In real life it's very much an Arthur Fellig approach

    Fix your settings before you leave the house and be in the right place at the right time?

    short answer: yes - at least in the really basic way: set flash sync speed on the camera body

    This is the answer i was looking for, thanks. With this iso and film speed are set, so its only worrying about aperture. I shot a whole roll in the snow with a flash on the A1 guessing the aperture and it all came out fine so i would rate myself to be competent enough.

    I understand the benefits of bouncing but I'll try a small flash for now just to see how I get on with it. Wycameras have a T20 for a tenner which seems to be one of the smallest

    Love the look of hotshoe flashes and proper lenses. Compacts are great but the flash photos are never amazing like they are with a flash on an SLR.

    Not so much for parties, just being able to use my SLRs after it goes dark without resorting to 800-3200 film and fast lenses

    Might be a stupid question but can all flashes be used on all hotshoes? I want a tiny flash for my 35mm slrs (pentax+canon). Something to leave in a pocket/bag for after dark.
    Anyone want to sell me something?

    Yeah my bad. Was too good to be true. I just cancelled the payment with paypal. Either way you should be able to get your money back through eBay resolution centre

    £1 a roll colorplus (36 exp). Worth stocking up on imo. As much as I'd love to shoot nothing but portra, I'll learn a lot more shooting 8/9 rolls of colorplus instead

    EDIT: scam account

    Kidding this will be awesome. As is every other build in this thread. Very jealous of your fire wielding abilities
