Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

My 'middle' offspring has been working on a project for the last year or so writing, and performing, original songs with a new band, U-matic. Following the tragic demise of Allan Parkinson, at the 2017 Bands on the Square, he wrote a song called Square and it's being played on the BBC on Saturday ev...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Last night actually, I noticed that the end of my HF wire antenna has broken from it's paracord tether which in itself is intact but now hanging free. The end of the ladder line antenna is in my next door but one neighbours back yard. Must be the termination on the ladder line that has failed. I'll...

Re: Photography Nuts & Bolts

Sally has a Lumix as well Kev, we got it when it was voted the best compact in it's class for a few years running. Not been disappointed either, I like the fact that it has a Leica lens system. They are very good, the only downside I've found is using the screen when the sun is shining, I can't see...

The newer compact cameras are really quite impressive, I bought my wife a Panasonic Lumix and have been very pleased with the output.

Re: Photography Nuts & Bolts

Quite happy with my old Olympus but a bit bulky for the ordinary happy snaps. You tend not to carry big cameras on a casual walk. On my visit to the Terracotta Worriers you could take pictures but no flash or tripod. The problem here was that the lighting levels were so low that you really needed a...

And is that a flip-out screen I see on the back. My Canon G11 has one and it's great! :smile:
It is indeed, very useful for those ground level shots, you can switch to 'live view' to display an electronic viewfinder on the screen :-)

I had to replace one of my camera bodies this week, the lcd information screen is faulty and keeps fading to black. The cameras I use (Olympus four thirds) are no longer in production so I made use of Ebay, picked up an E-30 for just over £200. It has a low shutter actuation count and is in mint con...
