After discussion with Graham (a member here) I have looked around and post some arm twisting, but not too much decided to join.

My employment is varied and some would say chequered; such that some days I will be driving an artic, on others translating or lecturing, or simply whiling away the time researching.

My interests include philately, painting and photography, with the latter two I generally concentrate on flora.

No luddite, I am still using film, but have purchased a Fuji 6.5MB digi camera. The other photographic gear is all from Canon. Focal range of my lenses is from 16mm to 800mm. Enough tripods to equip a shop and a variety of other accessories.

On the use of terminology, (I have read the thread), I am certain to go awry, just bear with me whilst I march up the learning curve and fit in. Just trying to preempt the stoning or having to wear a sackcloth!

regards to one and all

Nigel

Welcome Doktor! I don't think there will be any stonings, we're mostly a friendly bunch! Smile

Are you driving a truck into London today in protest about the fuel prices? Smile

What's the Fuji digital camera you've got, a point and shoot or a DSLR?

Its a small Fuji Finepix Point and shoot effectively but looks more like a dslr and has a good facilities for controlling the picture it takes, ie P, Av, S etc, on board flash is basic, and no facility to connect an external flash that I have yet discovered, however relatively pleased with it.

My other cameras are EOS 3 and 1N with a 30 I use for knock about

regards

Nigel

I heard that Danny!!

Anyway, glad you joined, Nigel - no doubt bump into you over a beer or a curry (more likely, both) over the next few days.

Cheers,

Not a concern here! I think you'll find this a pleasant place to hang out from time to time.

Yes, welcome aboard Nigel. Very Happy No, no stonings here. However, I always thought the "stocks" were kind of novel. Laughing

Stocks? - I do believe we still have some in the centre of Horsham...
