Recently, a few camera club members had a sneak peak at the soon-to-be announced Beaverbrook Library Digital Lab. Gillian Johnson showed us the equipment we’ll be able to use to digitize slides and negatives:
to transcribe VHS tapes to DVD:
and to to transcribe 8 mm and Super-8 mm movies to mp4. She explained that there will also be a digital camera and light box available for use in the lab.
We’ve invited the library to our meeting on October 5th to give all the members more details on the new lab including how to sign up and costs.
For more details including availability and sign-up procedure, please contact Gillian Johnson the Beaverbrook Library:
If you’re interested in a free chance to try shooting with film, Alexandra at Henry’s Kanata has asked us to pass along this invitation:
I promised I’d keep you all appraised of any events going on here at Kanata. We’ve got a fun one (I think anyways) coming up that some of your members might be interested in. A film photo walk!
It’s going to be on August 11th, 9am to ~ noon, at the Carp Farmers market. Like I said it’s free and Henry’s will be providing everyone with a free roll of film. We also have a few film cameras to lend out if someone wants to attend but doesn’t have, or no longer has, their own gear. Spots are slightly limited so people interested in attending should RSVP either to me through this email (Alexandra.firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling the store at 613-836-1016.
We think it’s going to be fun. It’s definitely going to be something different!
