Possible May-2019 AV Adjudication (via Mike Reed)

Mike has asked me post this:

and looks like Mike’s screen-grab is from page 3 of the most recent e-news:

(I have linked that directly off the PAGB e-news site)

New members may not be aware that we are one of the more active clubs in Surrey where AV is concerned and form the backbone of the Mid-Thames AV Group.

Last week a number of us attended the Keith Hunt Trophy for AV Competition at Woking Photographic Society and were pleased to be among the winners again with Niall Ferguson awarded second place for his ‘Red Arrows’ – a previous winner of our own Barbara Burge Trophy.



Belatedly, it is a pleasure to record the Club’s congratulations to Jean Hoyle on bringing home the Keith Hunt AV Trophy from Woking a couple of weeks ago. Many of us had seen and enjoyed Jean’s AV from Botswana last year when she won our own Barbara Burge competition. She had to make some adjustments for the Keith Hunt as the time allowed was shorter but the presentation -as always – was seamless and it was good to hear Walter Benzie, Immediate Past President of the Royal Photographic Society, pile praise on the ‘stunning’ presentation with every image worthy of high praise in its own right and music very appropriate to the theme.

Mike Reed is to be congratulated on his third place in the competition with a very compelling presentation about the bombing of Coventry, which was even more poignant when a gentleman sitting near us asked to meet Mike, wanting to tell him that this event was one of his earliest memories!

Well done, both!!

Congratulations also to Marilyn Taylor on her overall first place in the SPA Individual PDI competition held last month and to all those from the Club whose images received a score of 5 from at least one of the three judges: Roger Hoyle, Jean Hoyle, Mark Wycherley and Mike Reed. Their images are on the SPA website here Following this link will also give you a good idea of the high standards we see from other clubs in the Federation.

You’re giving us a lot to live up to!


AV Competition Winner

Mike Reed has asked me to post for those that were not there that Jean Hoyle won our annual AV competition (the Barbara Burge Trophy).

In addition Mike has noted that there is a new version of PTE v9 available for £30 upgrade price. That’s presumably this.


New versions of Pro Show Producer now available

Photodex have just released Version 7 of their two most popular products, Producer and Gold.

Understandably a lot remains the same, but the introduction of a music library containing Royalty Free music is very welcome. It is all categorised by genre and time, plus many popular sound effects are also added. If you have purchased either of these products in the last twelve months, then you should qualify for a FREE upgrade.

Not bad!!
