I am a little late in doing this , but i would like to acknowledge the help Came gave me .

My first wedding and he lent me 2 Flash units

then called me to see if i needed any more help

so i am very grateful for Cams help & support .

I visited Cam a few times in his last years and enjoyed them very much

Cam was also into Hi Fi so we swapped Hi Fi stories as well as photography

.

Thanks again for your help Cam and your friendship and advice .

Regards

Matt

My belated, but sincere condolences. I met Cam a few times in Auckland through our shared interest in photography. He was always helpful and encouraging. Sad news for our community.

I am afraid I was in China doing fieldwork when Cam died, and the later funeral. I had little access to the internet there, and regret not being able to pay my respects in person.

I haven't been here for a while, I'm both shocked and saddened to hear about Cams passing.

The end of an era here on dyxum, farewell Cam.

It is good and proper to see so many people say what a special and important person Cam was in terms of this forum. I have no idea what he was like otherwise and we even had our disputes here, but every photo I take is for Cam. Sadly only he would understand but that's the way if is. My giant has fallen and we feel the reverberations In Thailand.

I loved you.

A word or two of comfort and courage, making the farewell of a much admired and highly-regarded friend, mentor, and communicator. Cameron brought much that is special in to our lives, and we are all the richer for his huge contributions. Many will be surprised at the scope and distance of Cam's impact, and influence too, but that is the very essence of his total embrasure of the vibrant social media that came to be his biggest ever canvas, over his sunset years.
Often quoting his love of 'the Minolta colour palette' Cam, aka 'Brettania' gave fully and unreservedly of his entire storehouse of art photographic , and photojournalistic wisdom, again without fear or favour.
It has been a privilege to witness at close range (vicariously, via a web-stream)the occasion of his farewell; and a very moving experience also.
I am certain Cameron's global fraternity of digital image-makers will all join in raising a glass in farewell, as our good wishes go to those he leaves behind. Mine's a Jamesons.



A final moment: A trusty, if somewhat elderly, Series 152E Tamron 90mm f2.5 macro lens, formerly owned by Cam, is mounted on a Konica-Minolta 7D, watching over tributes to him, during the course of his funeral service in Auckland, New Zealand, this morning (NZST).

A final chapter, in a very rich, well-illustrated book of life.
A bad day making pix always beats the best day doing anything else!
