    Budget group

    It took Matt Grayson weeks of preparation like standing infront of the mirror practising jokes, hiring the tuxedo and drinking honey and lemon juice to improve his voice before being told that compering had been spelled incorrectly.

    Canon EOS 40D Review

    With a chorus of choirboys singing, massed pipers piping and a hundred heralds, er heralding, it�s the shiny new semi-pro DSLR from Canon. Duncan Evans puts away the kid gloves and gets out the silk ones with gold filigree he uses for special occasions.

    A3 Group

    Matt Grayson wanted some photos printing and there's more chance of him plaiting fog than paying for it. So instead, we got some A3 printers in and he thinly veiled his intentions behind a group test.

    Olympus E-410 DSLR Review

    A scant seven months after the release of the E-400, Olympus have replaced it with the E-410. Duncan Evans tried to substitute four words in his original review and post that but was caught out. For his penance, here's the all-new review.

    Sony DSLR-A700

    Next up in the autumn release schedule of DSLRs is the 12Mp offering from Sony. With its Exmor Sensor and BIONZ processor it�s considerably more advanced than Duncan Evans� feeble organic brain.

    With a 28mm wide angle view, the Panasonic FX55 is the perfect camera to take photographs of Matt Grayson after he's stuffed his face with mince pies.
