  12. Camera Not Needed!
    We have members with all sorts of camera equipment and some with none at all. Most have their own favourite make and model but nowadays you can take a good photos with most cameras – even smart phones. Some members use a compact (point and shoot type) camera, others prefer the convenience of a bridge camera because of they are light to carry, very versatile and because they may not require additional lenses. DSLR cameras are however still the camera of choice for the more experienced members.


  13. Finally, and most important of all at Cardiff we have a passion in photography and want to share it.

We hope this information will encourage you to join
