I've been dashing about locally taking photos, and have blended a few together. It's working ok (see attached!) and I planned to create a calendar.

I've been told it's gonna cost £2300 to print 500 calendars (shortest run!), so I think I'll bin that idea!

Other thing is I've no camera case yet, anybody recommend a good (under £40?) case for the 6490?

happy snapping everyone! :blah:

some nice shots there.

that seems like a hefty price tag for calendars... do some shopping around at some different online photo printing places.. because £2300 is over $5000CDN, which means you'd be paying $10+CDN for each calendar - way too much, especially if you're looking to make your money back in sales.

not sure what's available in the UK, but i know print shops around here can definitely print 500 nice-looking calendars for less than that. =)

as for a case - don't get the Kodak-made leathery one. it's riduculously expensive and doesn't have a lot of room for cards, thumb drives, and such.

i got a $15 Optex case from my local shop and it's great.

I got this one.

its a bit fiddly to get the camera into and out of untill you get used to the right way to put it in. I fold the strap around the camera just over the lens and then i put it in with the lens facing forward and the shutter release button to the top. Then i fold the rest of the strap into the gap that is left in the top. The lid close perfectly then. It does look a bit like a small ladies handbag but it keeps the camere safe.

The North Face makes an awesome cammera case, or at least they did, not sure if they still do; but its worth looking into. I payed about $100CDN for it a few years ago. Anyway, if you can find one, it is water resistant, decent for space, big enough to hold a 7590 with the wide angle and lens adapter attached. Plus a roomy front pocket for batteries, filters etc. If I can remember correctly it was marketed as a rock climbing photo case cause you can strap it around your neck and waste.

Anyway, thats my suggestion if you can find it.
Good Luck
