    Hi do any of you know or can you recommend a photographers notebook that I can write notes in, setting like ISO etc from?

    I'm looking for one I can take on field trips with me?

    Many thanks.

    If you use a digital camera it's in the EXIF data of the file.

    I haven't seen one, looking for something which has prewritten sections in.

    Thank you, Very handy to write in a book, but not really what I meant :)

    I use spiral bound colored index cards. When filled up, I sort them by color (specific color by camera) in index file card box. I usually put one in each film camera bag. As mentioned, digital uses exif data and no need. If I forget them, I use my record feature on my phone and speak the settings into them and transfer later onto index card. Old school but it works for me.

    @AuraTodd ...I am not sure. Just sent the link as a reference. I bought mine at a Salvation army thrift store for a quarter a piece (packs of three). I see them in almost every Salvation Army Thrift store here in Michigan, they must have picked up a truckload and distributed them to the various outlets. I should mention these notes are an invaluable tool if your working on a certain look or style. So when you post a pic for C & C, you have specific questions and get specific answers from the pro's on here, they are very helpful.

    Info on card... as an example.

    Lens: 50mm 1.7 - K1000
    Mode: Manual
    Aperture: 6.3
    Shutter: 1/80
    Focus: N/A
    Meter: N/A
    Flash: Yes - Manual 1/4 - Fill
    Film: ISO 400, Fuji Super X - Camera set to 800 ISO
    Filter: Yellow Y48

    Notes: Tractor show Mason, MI

    Took a look at that first link. I really like those notebooks, but holy cow, they're selling an Argus C3 for $937? ON SALE?? Okay, they are refurnishing it with a mahogany skin, but seriously, $1K for a Brick?? They are everywhere, and if someone really wants to shoot with one, they can get one for $25 eeeeeasy. Every time Buzz and I go into a junk shop to poke around, we have a running bet to see who finds the Brick first. Because there's always a Brick. Someone who spends $1K on that camera just because it's got a mahogany skin probably has more money than sense, and I'll bet cares less about using the camera and more about showing it off.

    I've always used simple pocket notebooks. The past few years they have been the small unlined moleskine as they hold up to heavy travel usage. I don't think I could use one that had boxes to fill in.
