Public Discussion Forum on Various Issues on Photography

Share common knowledge & exchanging experience with your views on photography. I know the original Free Trade Zone section may has some restriction imposed on its content (only Buy/Sell Stuffs), but as requests are pouring in to create another section for other subjects other than buy/disposal of equipments, so, as much as I can offer, I have used the template for other existing message boards to create another section for all of you to use. As this is a non-profitable section, so I didn't ask our programming staffs to creste a dedicated thread-like format. I am not sure if this has served its purpose but nevertheless, it is a channel for all of you to utilise to express other thoughts on photography-related issues. A few volunteers have been appointed to edit the content as it requires. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views. Enjoy.

This site is specifically created for common usage on photographic issues. Please don't mail me other than constructive suggestions or rectifying mistakes found in this site, thank you.

*******WARNING******* for and others that trye to sell very cheap cams here!!!!!!This is africans that try to steal money from you!!!!!! - kloesel PPP..ARRANGE APPOINMENT AT YOUR OWN (YOUR OFFICE ETC...)PLACE INSTEAD ON PUBLIC PLACE. - BEWARE - beware Unverified :- But some co-maintainers of FTZ have constantly remind buyers of uncertain deal. But a guideline is, calling price is way BELOW market price on used equipment cheap always MAY have some issues or agenda. So, always ASK and CHECK (such as IP address originated from) other sources before committing. IF sellers requesting for QUCK money transfer such a Moneygram or Western Union - it may post potentially a problem. Thanks.
