It used to be that one of the delights of visiting the UK occasionally was to fetch the things that one could not get abroad. Yet for the last decade, this notion has become outdated. Consumer technology, new motorcycle designs, fashionable recipes, and other trends often originate in South-East Asia, and in Thailand in particular. […]
Everybody knows the AE-1 and AE-1 Program. Maybe that’s because Canon produced so many of them. In reviews of this camera, they mention it was one of the products that opened the world of SLR to an average consumer.

In addition to the extra hardware, I tracked the prices […]
It has come to the point in my life where I am the ‘camera guy’ to family and colleagues; I will not lie to you, I have brought this on myself, and knew it would happen. When Christmas or a birthday rolls around, I get camera-themed goods. At work I’d previously been given a camera […]
