    Thanks, much appreciated!
  • Heya, Thanks for the recommendation. If Towergate Camerasure can please a grumpy old sod, they should be good enough for me. I'll give them a call :-) Cheers! Chas
  • Hi All, UK pro photog here. I'm in the market for a new insurer. I made a claim last year (two damaged cameras plus one damaged lens from a fall, all repaired, no write-offs), and my excess went ...

    Ah, but all roads lead to roam! ;-)
  • Replied in For FrancoD
    Thats a good mission :-) I don't blame them, it's become a longer thread than I anticipated, and my followup post is a bit buried.
  • Replied in Correct
    correct Yeah :-/
  • Replied in For isme
    Great recommendation, very much appreciated! So you use it as a body camera? How do you deal with the relatively short battery life?
  • Replied in for Aberaeron
    Well, it's not all _that_ bad! I'm condensing my experiences over the years, and I of course up my odds of an unwanted encounter by spending a higher than average time shooting (if I'm not ...
  • @keepreal: fellow Londoner here. Doable!

    Beachy Head/Seven Sisters Cliffs/Birling Gap (right near Eastborne) are a quick train ride south of London. This is where I shot...

    Thanks for the further endorsement, Doug :-)
  • Replied in for Sailor Blue
    Great recommendation, many thanks. I see that there are actually 3 models of this charger. I can skip the M variant that also charges D and C cells (LOL, don't know when I last had a piece of kit ...
  • Replied in for Fazal
    Thanks very much, Fazal. Huh, I never thought Ikea would be a good place to go to get multi-battery chargers! It actually has 12 separate channels, not bad :-) Cheers! Chas
  • Hi All, I frequently have to charge between 12 and 16 AA batteries at a time (for speedlight flashes). My Ansmann " energy 16 " charger has died, so I'm looking for a replacement (one that isn't so ...
  • @maxnimo, while that's correct (I have one, 12 high CRI LEDs, great for video), they get really really hot (on "turbo", mine is too hot to handle in less than 2 minutes). I wonder how hot these new...
