Re: Photo & Video - Info, Updates & Events [CH]

I have organised an event today to do a night shoot in Zurich if anyone would be interested to join.We will meet at 19:30 at the big ben pub on the Neiderdorfstr. and then go out together to see whhat night shots we can find.

Assuming this small event goes well we can build from that and organise more group shoots in the future.

New Canon Patent

Live view is new, fun and practical to use. Canon has placed a new

Camera or Equipment Stolen?

Finally, a Swiss website to publish your stolen article and serial number!
Now, the only question is, where do I keep my serial numbers? Well,
we all have a computer. Text files are easily created. Need I say more?
Perhaps the site will be published in English, send AC-Foto a contact mail
and simply ask. The pressure is on if enough people request this, I did.

How can the TZ-7 be a hit if it's not even out yet?

The online TZ-x community is waiting for Panasonic to fix the image quality that is endemic in this range. If so, perhaps THEN they'll have a hit.
