Interest in Kamlan 50mm f1.1

Following the interest in Jon’s pictures at Wednesday’s Zoom meeting, he asked me to put some details on our site. The lens is a Kamlan 50mm f1.1 costing around £150. At this price, it is not autofocus. f1.1 lets in a lot of light which makes focussing a little easier.

Photo walk

The next Photo Walk will be this Thursday, 17th December.

Bantock Park again to try some low light photography, possibly light trails and light painting.

Meeting in the car park at 2.30 as usual.

A torch, tripod and remote release would be useful but not essential.

All Covid precautions will be observed.

Zoom Meetings and Photo Walk Changes.

Tomorrow’s (7/12/2020) Zoom meeting will be a Committee meeting in preparation for Wednesday’s Interim AGM. This will be an open meeting, so if you want to log in that will be fine.


On Wednesday (9/12/2020) we will hold an Interim AGM to hold us over until we are in the position to hold an actual AGM. Please try to attend on Wednesday.


On Thursday Jon is planning a Photo walk in Wolverhampton and the Mander Centre. The object of this walk is to photograph the Christmas decorations. After discussion, it has been decided that the group will meet outside Caffe Nero at the Queen Square end of Darlington Street (Beaties) at 2pm. Jon is discussing this with the Mander Centre management and will confirm later. At the moment the only condition is that there will be no tripods allowed, the normal Covid precautions will be observed.
