As I might finally be getting off my btm and popping down to the NA at Kew to check out some things in a few months time, I thought it might be well worth asking for general advice before going. One specific query is on cameras; will I be OK with the rather noisy mechanical shutter of my SLR clunking away copying a mound of text, or is it better to take a (silent) compact? I'm told there are copy stands provided, presumably these have a screw mounting for the tripod bush? Or is it a simpler arrangement? Also is there a limit on the documents you can have for copying at any given time? Or can you just click away to your hearts content? All other good advice gratefully received. Cheers, Adam.
