Can't book that early yet but the date fits in nicely between two events so I'll count myself in.

That's the price that was showing in Kayak yesterday (excellent app by the way).

I use Skyscanner, just to compare, and I have started to use TripIt to organise stuff, which is brilliant.

Here's a link to the arrangements for the Venice Challenge we had last year.

http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-...ments-etc.html

We all meet, use One camera, One lens (no zooms), One roll of film (or 36 digital exposures), have Two hours to take One best shot, which then gets voted upon by the Forum membership at large. There is a €10 entry fee, which this year was donated to the same charity as the Forum Charity Book.

There are usually a couple of dozen members there, depending upon where it is held. Copenhagen might be one of the more popular destinations.

There were 12 of us at the first one in London and over 40 in Berlin

So far, we have been to London, Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Krakow, Valletta, Venice and Palermo.

Paul,

Please see the first post in this thread, which sets out the rules for the 2011 Palermo One Challenge.

The One Challenge is a light-hearted challenge run on trust where entrants meet at a chosen location and each entrant is allowed to use one camera, one lens, one film (or one ISO setting for digital) to expose up to 36 shots within a 2-hour time period (it was originally a 1-hour time period but it was too restrictive). It has always been a social event and very enjoyable and over the past few Challenges numbers have been around 30 including wives, partners and other "family support crew".

Pete.

I thought zooms were allowed provided they were used at a pre-agreed single focal length?

It's a social thing too, a chance to meet other forum members and handle a wide range of equipment.

Zooms have been allowed on this basis for the past couple of years at least.

Zooms have been allowed from the outset - at the first Challenge in London I used an LC-1 @50mm

Regards,

Bill

Yes, but you're not allowed to zoom it.

You would be more than welcome to join us

Just booked my flights - £151 for two of us, but for some reason, easyJet thought that we are French. Maybe we will be by the time October comes round

Perhaps I'll drive down (or take the bus) to Copenhagen, it's just a few hours away. It's a long time yet though.

We tend to meet in a cafe or bar, have something to eat/drink, go out individually for two hours, them meet back at the original meeting place for more photography chat.

What generally happens is that we meet at about noon, for coffee and a cake or a beer and a panini, or whatever, then the two hours starts at around 14:00

Then, afterwards, you can rejoin the other members at the coffee shop or go on your way.

We now try to have a communal meal in the evening too.

You tend to find that people bump into each other over the weekend.

The whole thing is as much about the social aspect as it is about the taking of photos.

This is quite flexible, we meet in a café, have a chat, start the two hours, where everyone is on his own, and this is all, in principle. Most of us meet again in the café after the competition, but this is up to everyone. In the evening, there is a dinner, which is optional as well.

As you see, the whole event is most flexible. Even the required parts are not checked by anyone, since one is spoiling one's own fun, when not sticking to the rules.

Edit - sorry Steve and Andy, crossed posts

Stefan

That's where I went wrong this year! I tee'd up the wrong shots! Lot's of divots to be replaced.
