New activity : Photo of the Month

The committee has the pleasure to announce you a new activity at Cern Photo Club, this is the Photo Of The Month contest!!

In fact it's not really a contest, because there is nothing to win! It's to encourage people to take a shot of one subject and to share it with other members.

It can be the opportunity for beginner to work on a specific picture (thinking about it, taking it, developing and sharing it), to have a feedback on the result and to compare it with the pictures, made by the other members.

New Printing Minilab ordered!

We have ordered the new amazing Epson Surelab D700, a dry digital minilab capable of super fast high quality printing in the small format.   watch the video! SurelabD700 is expected operational at the end of March.See also expected Printing Prices PDF
