    I'm just getting back into film. I have just bought 4 Olympus Trips. One is still in it's original packaging and was manufactured in 1978. The second is a refurbished early silver button, the third wasn't working and is off for repair and the fourth is a rare black edition. I am currently using an Olympus OM10 with a 50mm 1.8 lens. I think it's a good think to go back to now and then. Makes you take a little more time think about your settings, lighting and composition more.

    Hi

    I went for a Manfrotto from Jessops. They price matched wex and I purchased it on interest free credit.

    I am really pleased with the new tripod and the customer service at Jessops was much better than Vanguard. My replacement Vanguard tripod never arrived and when I chased it up I was told the managing director forgot to post it and that was all he had to remember to do that day. I was very shocked at their attitude. Very unprofessional.

    I purchased an Alto Pro tripod. When received it was faulty. I returned it immediately and was assured a new one would be despatched. It never arrived. When I complained I was told the MD forgot and they would send me one straight away. I told them to keep it. Very poor customer service.

    Now off to Jessops to get a Manfrotto. Hopefully more reliable.

    I bought a third party battery and I found it half the price Canon and it performs better than the Canon battery.

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie, thought I would give this a go with a field of golden barley.
