    As initiated by Thomas (trisberg) looking to see if we have enough interest in another "Single in…" challenge.

    If you're up for it then please register your interest here before 31 December 2014.

    For those not sure if they are interested - or what the plum a "Single In" challenge involves - here is the gist of it from 2012.

    All-in mate?…or do I spy a single $20 chip there under your elbow? :laugh1:

    Jeez it's good to be back. Any idea what you're in with mate?
    For me, I'm thinking of rebonding with my Fuji X100s.

    I'm thinking of using the RX1 since it's newest one in the stable

    Jeez, it's good to see you out of the dark room Mark! I thought you had got yourself tangled up in film somewhere down under!

    I may have to get a duster out to see what's sitting on the shelf but definitely count me in.

    Oh hello Karen, it has been too long. Great to see you and have you on-board for January. As usual I think it will matter little what you have in your hand…that eye of yours!

    I would love to participate! (but will be very challenging, dark time of the year.. 8.30 - 17.00 job).
    Picking my equipment is the easy part: X-E1 + 18-55mm.

    Is a compact zoom against the spirit of the challenge?

    Taking an Oly Stylus 1 to Jamaica soon, so that's what I'd have to be using. Just an extremely versatile camera with decent image quality. What more should I really want though?

    No full-frames, no m43s with Nocticrons though ... Ay-Caramba, that's rough!

    Not if you stick with that one camera for at least one shot each day. Much the same as welding a zoom up front for 31 days mate.

    This will be a great way for you to get to know this bit of kit pre-Jamaica. And if it doesn't work out for you, then I'm prepared to make the sacrifice and take the Stylus-1 to Jamaica for you instead mate.

    Great to see the fantastic response, I'm ready! Looks like you all are too. Looking forward to it. I've yet to choose my lens/camera combo. Might go for the Sony A7 that I just got today with a manual focus 50mm lens. Although, I did enjoy using my X100 last time around, so I have some thinking to do.

    Cheers,
    Thomas

    Mark, you have a gift for rallying the troops. Good to see so many onboard so quickly. Hopefully the others will be inspired and join the ranks soon. I flipped through the book this afternoon. So many great photos..... I still feel honored to view mine amongst them.

    For anyone who wasn't around here back then, you can see everyone's month of shooting in the gallery here...... https://www.photographerslounge.org/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=644 I encourage people to wade through them as time permits. When this group isn't obsessing over gear, they are quite talented at creating photos.

    Right on! The book turned out a treat.

    Nice to see so many 35mm (e.g., X100 models, RX1) - will certainly show just how versatile this focal length can be.

    I'll be in. I need a rocket to get out there, I've been quite morose of late and doing SFA. I was sure I was in that single in january. Well, I know I was, I'm in the book. but none of my shots seem to be in the gallery anymore. Does anyone else see them? Pretty sure I used the XZ-1, so this time I'll go for single focal length... probably X100 since I have been neglecting it. OR V1 with 18.5mm lens.

    Happy memories of the first "Single in..." so I'll sign up again. Hope I'm not making a rod for my own back but I'll go with my somewhat ancient and IR-converted Canon G5.
