ok, i've heard and seen so much discussion about people saying that we spend too much time discussing tech specs and what's the latest gizmo and whiizbang D-SLR, and not enough time shooting and taking photos, so i'm taking the lead to organize...

ClubSNAP's first Point-and-Shoot only outing!!! :rbounce:

Date - 5th April Saturday (a week from now)
Place - Chinatown or Little India
Time - 10.30am
Meet @ Peninsula BK first, to get films, supplies (& breakfast) first, then set off by 11am.

Conditions:-
- no SLRs or cameras with detachable lenses (meaning no expensive Leicas or Contaxes either)
- digicams and prosumer cams welcome
- no tripods or teleconverters longer than my arm
- all brands welcome (even lomos and holgas)

the idea is to get people out of the CP/AP shops and onto the streets, using the bare essentials and TAKE PHOTOS! the first joker who whips out a DSLR will get his precious cam confiscated by me for the duration of the outing, in exchange for a Kodak disposable cam. unless you're bigger or heavier than me, in which case i'll only give you dirty looks and nag you to death. :D

i'll be using a film P&S if any of you are wondering, with plenty of bulk-roll slides and Kodak T400CN film.

so, is any1 game? put your name here!!!

E10/20 issit? sure sure, welcome welcome. like i said (somewhere), it's all in the spirit of the outing - stop thinking about what you're using to shoot and concentrate on what you should be shooting. :D

just don't come with a teleconverter attachement that's longer than my arm. ;)

D-SLR is still SLR what... :D

ok put it this way, any camera which needs a mounted lens is a no-no.

aiyah, like i said, it's the spirit that counts. don't think any1 will give you the dirty eye if you use your Yashica. ;)

and you're welcome to play with my Holga/Lomo if you interested in that sorta thing.

ya isn't it? it'll be a welcome break to carry a small waistpouch instead of lugging a massive camera bag around (which i do everyday). :D

i got some feedback that this seems to be a film-based outing. let me emphasize - it's NOT. referring to my first post, let me repeat...

"digicams and prosumer cams welcome"!!!

so all you folks with the S602Zs and A20/40s and what-nots, pls feel free to come down without feeling like you need to bring your sunday best equipment.

come come dun shy!!!
