Important – Please Update Zoom

Zoom has been making significant improvements to the security of their platform which means that you need to update YOUR copy of the Zoom software on your device.  You must be on version 5.0 or above otherwise you will not be able to join our online meetings after 30 May 2020.  You can find instructions on how to do this below:

AGM Reminder

The AGM will be held at 7:30 this coming Thursday 21st May. All the papers were circulated to members individually and the recent Newsletter of 5th May provided a link to Dropbox where all the papers are stored.

The quorum for the AGM is a minimum of 36 members and the access codes to log onto the Zoom meeting are listed under the ‘Programme’ part of the website. Please make every effort to log on.

I hope to see as many of you as possible on Thursday

PDI of the Year

I am pleased to say that Leo Rich, who was down to judge the PDI of the year as part of the exhibition, has agreed to judge the PDI of the Year as a stand alone competition on June 11th as a Zoom meeting.

You can upload your entries at the normal place:

The competition is open to all classes and each member may enter up to two entries. Each entries must have already been judged in a PDI competition in this season (2019-2020). So all you have to do is select your two favourite entries and upload them.

Entries must be in by end of day 28th of May 2020.

All in a day’s work – photo essay

Photographer David Collyer, who is a Operating Department Practitioner in an Abergavenny Hospital, has documented the experiences of the department during the coronavirus epidemic. 

As well as being a revealing insight, they are a fine example of documentary photography and the images are accompanied by David’s explanatory text.

Print Group Zoom Meeting

The Print Group will meet again via Zoom on Tuesday 12th May, having found our way meeting virtually, and sorting out the technical glitches we experienced on our first trial. 

As well as sharing views and tips, in many ways just as we do when we meet, an advantage of Zoom is the ability to share screens and rather than simply describing a technique, showing a quick demonstration. So rather than trying to explain where you’ll find, say, the radial filter in Lightroom, it can very speedily be shown.

Once again, you are welcome to submit up to three images, and if so, please read the following guidance on how to do so.

  • Please submit images by the end of Monday 11th May
  • Resize images to 1900 x 1200 pixels, maximum 2MB. You can find resizing guidance on the Club website at
  • Please title your images (embedded in the file please, not as an email list)with your name then either the title or other identifier, such as file number ie Lorna Brown Sunny Afternoon or LornaBrown no1 
  • Email them to me (if you don’t have my email address you can find a list of Useful telephone numbers and email addresses on the website under ‘Documents’
  • If MAC users can find how to attach rather than embed images it would be really helpful but isn’t necessary (PCs read some MAC images as embedded not attached, which can be resolved by how the MAC makes the attachment)

Chichester Cameraclub is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
