Not much point Simon, it's the video aspect I'm after in the change.

If the video side is more important to you it would make sense to treat yourself to a decent video camera and take stills from it.

What do you need a monstrosity of a camera for, when you can take pictures like these with a pocket camera similar to this one. I must add that it takes excellent videos as well. Wide angle with a 30x optical lens.

I bought this camera for Joyce to use on a trip to Vietnam, previous to that I replaced my old camera with a Sony Next 7 with two lenses, since buying the HX50 the Next 7 has never been out of its box.
I bought one last week Drew, looks a good bit of kit, but it had a few issues like the display was flickering so I returned it, I've just bought this one Sony Cybershot digital camera DSC-HX200V, it isn't a single button press, but very straight forward, I'll report back once I get it and have a play.

Well the camera arrived yesterday, on a brief mess about just now I have to say I'm happy with it so far it came with an 8gb card I've just put a 32gb micro SD card in a sleeve to try that out as I have plenty of those I bought a batch of ten 3 years ago so handy to have if they will work in the camera which is a doddle to use so far.

Any hoo here's a very poorly executed video of the groundworks not going on right now and an idea of what the view is from here, if I Had used a tripod it'd have less shake, I don't hear any camera noise but my tinnitus may mask it, please tell me if there is any.

Link to Video and some quick pictures.

Kev,

The view looks fantastic - Iím envious. The video is good, no discernible camera noise (by me at least), though your breathing is evident throughout (Iím not suggesting that you stop ). Sometimes the speed of movement of the camera is a little faster than ideal - but you may well choose to edit those bits out for a more serious video. The stills look good too.

You should be pleased.


Regards,
John

If only I could think of an original, witty signature . . . this is where it would be . . .

With a little more practise Kev you will be just as good as Jan.

The guy on top of the electric pylon must have been frozen? Definitely not a job for this weather.

You shouldn't have much of a problem kleaing your conservatory, a couple of scaffolding planks from a scaffolders yard and a good pair of step ladders should do the trick. most of the roof can be cleaned from ground level or just a couple of feet from the ground. I bought a pair of trestles from Screwfix when I papered the ceiling, 2 x 12' planks cut in half between the trestles did the job without a problem, they gave me about 12' of walking.

Where there's a will, there is a way.

Yes, I had a word with Liz about the breathing, always been a heavy breather, I used to rent myself out to weirdos, but my asthma cleared up.

The movement was rubbish unsupported and shivering with cold so could have been worser.

Yes I'm pleased with it, I'll look for a cheaper one now, this was £100 delivered.
