Hi everyone, I contacted lensesforhire to see if they could work with us, but they felt we didn't cater to the Uk market! That's so wrong as the UK is our second biggest source of readers only after the US.

Guys, please prove them wrong! Anyone in the Uk contacting them, please say you heard about them on cameralabs. Hopefully we can work something out which will be mutually beneficial. They certainly look like a good service...

Hi folks,

There was some great imagery of the ISS plus the Shuttle captured when the Expedition 27 crew departed the station. My favourite (sharpened slightly and cropped to better fit within the forum guidelines) appears below and you can click on the image to see the full-size original.

The full set can be found at the page NASA - Expedition 27 Departure Photos. Enjoy. 8)

Hi everyone, I recently completed a second video about my trip to view the Endeavour STS 134 launch, which was screened at our local shorts film festival in Queenstown!

You'll recognise some of the footage from my previous 500mm lens video, but you may still enjoy it!

It's on this page, along with the others shown on the evening.

Fantastic job, Gordon. Hopefully the NASA press office took time to review your film: they owe you one. Fingers crossed for the 8th. 8)

Cracking film Gordon. I really felt your deflation at not seeing it live. :(
Not long to go now for your next trip though eh. (fingers crossed :wink: )

btw, I also watched that `80 days` vid too. Excellent, really enjoyed that too.

I love the alternate version of the kit description :) Nice overall, gives a good feel for how the trip went.

Thanks guys, glad you liked it!

The other films we showed were also fun if you'd like to check them out. The 80 days film was by Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs fame...
