Re: BIAFF 2012 RESULTS

Michael, No, I didn't borrow "From the Horse's Mouth" from the IAC library. I was at the London Amateur Film Festival - LAFF - at St.Ermyns in 1975 and watched it then as well as your "Skilift", which was one of my favourites on the day. Another earlier film of yours which I grea...

Could anyone recommend the most useful cards for a newcomer to purchase recording to an SD card for the first time, on the Panasonic SD900. There seems to be a bewildering choice !
