The Society's (OPS) focus is on achieving excellence in the creation of images, so our website contains little or no information on technical gizmos beyond the basic information required to create good photographs. You will not find detailed specifications for the latest cameras, lenses or flashguns. Such information is supplied by the manufacturers of the relevant products. Neither will you find discussions, opinions or recommendations relating to comparable products from different manufacturers.
In the right hands, good images can be created using the simplest items of photographic equipment. Only when a particular camera or lens is limiting what a photographer can achieve is there a need to replace with something better, and hence probably more expensive. It is with this philosophy firmly in mind that this website was created.
