Thanks for the advice guys, I'll pop down to the newsagent and have a look through a copy of the photographic trader. I am definitely going to go to the photomarket in box hill hopefully I can find some stuff but is it one of the markets where you have to turn up early to get the good stuff? Also I've been looking at some easels is there any difference between these types that don't have blades and that do? For example;
