Having just received a message from Ascot about the closing of this forum it compells me to publicy thank him and everyone else that has been involved in running this outstanding forum for us Konica Minolta / Sony owners.

My own keeness has waivered and shock horror i use a small compact travel Sony on our trips and even resorting to use the Samsung phone for our happy snaps. When i first joined many years ago the vibe of the group was ond of fun, sharing and learning. The knowledge and photographic skill levels found here amongst the members is incredible.

So Thank You Dynax Digital and all that made it what it became.

Maybe catch some of you on Instagram.my user name is NIKNOFF

It is the end of an era Mick and I am not going to get my 10,000 posts up but Charles and I are spending more time dealing with spammers than responding to posts. I do not use the new social media so all the best...john

Hi guys :)

Sad to say I haven't received any message through the post (email) about the forum closing. Just got the notification of a new post to this section...

However... hearing that there are more 'spam' posts than actual posts from members I guess it was only going to be a matter of time :(

I'm going to tag add my thanks to this also... Thanks to the present and past admins for their time spent looking after it... thanks to those that contributed with guidance, help of all types and information. Thanks to ALL that shared their shots and those that gave comment - very much appreciated by me and I'm sure others also :)

In one of my last visits I mentioned that I'd come away from SONY... Only just about a year but... after years with the Minolta 7000i AF slr, 50mm f1.7 and 70-210 f4 Beercan from 1985 until an A700 in Aug 2008 when I joined this great forum - Nine and a half almost years!!!. Then to the A77, A77ii and ending with the A7Rii - - - lifetime with #7 it seems :lol: and quite a few lenses, many used.

Now find myself with Nikon which seem to suit me now although I've not ruled out a return to SONY if carrying a bag full of lenses round with me gets to be cumbersome - not getting younger ;) The Sony RX10 iv (or next iteration of) may well be the next - and final - camera at some point...

Those that want to catch up, my Instagram is: franketchells (https://www.instagram.com/franketchells/ ) , Facebook is: http://facebook.com/fetchells  and I'm building a (work in continual progress with adding images etc.,) webpage at  http://franketchellsphotography.co.uk/

Wish everyone the very best for the future as well as my sincerest thanks to Ascot and chappo1 for their time spent here :)

A big thank you from me as well for the years of dedication from the mods that have kept the site running so well for so long.

It is the end of an era, and I am sad to see the  end of it, but can see why when spammers are making the majority of posts.

Best wishes to all.

I would like also to thank all people here in this forum. I join this forum back in 2006 and I learned a lot from here that made me a better photographer. It was the most honest and friendly forum you could find about cameras.

I am still in photography as hobby and now side by side with my SLR/DSLR collection I have a good collection of Mirrolless.

Maybe we meet in another forum.

Thanks all dynax-digital members and administration for this wonderful 12 learning years

It’s sad that we’ve got to this point but there is a time when you have to draw a line under things especially as all the work put into running this site has been purely out of good will and there has been a lot of good will!

So I’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone who has been involved over the years keeping this site going. I’ve been lucky enough to meet one or two of you, I just wish it could be more, but there is still time for that.

All the best to everyone who has made this a great community over the many years it’s been running.

Wow, this is a real shame. I completely understand about them spam, a number of forums I am a member are having to deal with growing spam issues :(

I would like to add my thanks to everyone who has contributed over the years and especially to the admins and mods who have kept the site running.

All the best to everyone.
