greygit I have always been a keen amateur photographer even at fifteen but could never really warrant buying expensive gear. At the age of 77 and in the middle of a lock-down I thought why not I might not be around much longer, so I bought two new lenses only to find my old Nikon 7000 was not good enough for them.......that was the excuse I used. So now I have a full frame Nikon D750 and wow! The detail on these later budget lenses and cameras is amazing ,one lens is a prime 70mm macro and that has opened up a whole new world of insect photography for me.
Sorry a bit off topic but I'm like a kid with new toys.

You should be pleased.

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.

Drew 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.

Pudsey_Bear 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.

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.
