  • Providing they have lowered the current consumption to that of a digital watch. Henry
  • Why would I want to buy a range finder 35mm camera with a selenium exposure meter round the lens with the film advance missing? I have consistently avoided buying ANY digital camera built to look ...
  • I have been using three 16 MB pocket travel zooms with 25-600mm lenses since the 24th September 2011 (Olympus SZ-30MR, SH-50, SH-1). What makes them all work with the slow lenses is the BSI-CMOS ...
  • Replied in SH-1 - January
    Thank you, most appreciated. February is not too bad either - This is our cat Lucky - her decision, not ours - following me down the road, way outside her territory. Henry
  • Here is the video from last Thursday's 'No Morris Practice' dance-out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G38TJDin-P4 Hamish (second dance, front right) wants you to know the names of the dances - ...
  • Created discussions SH-1 - No Morris Practice
    On Thursday the Morris practice was replaced with a dance-out in the Wynyard Quarter of Auckland. Only half the people who said they would come turned up, late, so I played with my camera - This is ...
  • Then again - in our Morris dance group the opinion has been expressed that such an acquaintance takes as long to dissolve as it has been in existence. Sandra and I have been acquainted for more ...
  • I went round the water front to check on the sound for a Morris dance gig in the afternoon. And Lucky followed me halfway down the street. But I did some shopping afterwards, and returned down the ...
  • Replied in Hibiscus
    Just because yours was taken in a rush still allows you to tweak it a bit. In the front Sandra put in some red Hibiscus, and I still have to get one that pleases me without reservations. Here is ...
  • If it has a MUCH better battery life than the G7 X, quite possibly. I need the battery life to take videos in our public Morris dance performances. Since I am playing the accordion for these while ...
  • I took this on the Olympus SH-1 as a string of silent time lapse videos, and added my accordion playing later in AVS Video Editor - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3yjdyApy68 . From memory, there ...
  • I was too young then to watch the movies of either then - and Sandra is 19 Years younger than I am. The improvement in colour started when BSI-CMOS sensors began replacing the CCDs in small sensor ...
  • I am happy with my Olympus SH-1 pocket travel zoom, because it does all the jobs I need to do, with minimum fuss and little post-processing required. WB AUTO works with sun rises, without blue ...
  • Replied in Hibiscus
    In my life, Sandra has Hibiscus all over the place, and I also take snaps of them. I decided to try and get a bit more detail out of yours, since my SP-570 (also with a CCD sensor) shots always ...
  • Replied in xD cards
    The last camera I bought with an xD card slot was the Olympus Stylus 7020 7x zoom 12 MP pocket P&S in 2009. It also had an adaptor for 8GB  micro-SD cards. For me it was stopgap. It did typically ...
  • Thank you. Here is an other interloper - Her name is Lola. The lady from the other end of our street assures me that Lola gets fed lambs fry at her rightful home. Last night Sandra saw Lola and ...
  • She does her job - keeps Sandra company when I am not. That she does. It was a oncer. Thank you Henry
  • Thank you! Sandra tells me it is Gina Lollobrigida, a contemporary of Sopha Loren. I was a teenager then. Sandra picked up the photo somewhere and gave it to me as a present. Henry
  • It is not bad at all, even at the 1600 x 1099 reduction. Henry
  • Created discussions SH-1 - Owner and Pet
    'I own this human!' She came into the radio room, growling, since it was feeding time. I was busy, so I ignored her. She then jumped on the back of my chair and kept on growling. I got my camera ...
