RNLI – A Safe BET

Testing a Sony A7s

Why the departure from Nikon? Audience feedback from Dartmouth Shakespeare week; shutter noise. This Sony is completely silent (a mirror-less DSLR).

RIP D100

Ah well, all good things…

Whilst out for a walk this morning I saw a friend crossing the river. I’ve always admired the unfussy way he manages his small inflatable tender. I had the camera, a long lens, the weather was great, so I snapped away. Normally I would not have checked the photos but by a stroke of good fortune, today, I did. What follows are the last photos taken with my D100. In short the shutter is jamming and the cost (and time) to repair, to high for the value of the camera. With a busy night’s rehearsal ahead of me tonight (Taming of the Shrew). I had to get a replacement and so off to Mifsuds in Brixham. Long story short, I’m now learning how the manage a D600. Many thanks to Mifsuds and especially to Ian.

A Kingswear Sunday

One of those rare days. I took the ferry to Kingswear with intending to have lunch at a newly opened Oopsydebsy’s Café but fate directed me to The Ship Inn. A great afternoon made all the more fun by the brilliant sounds of Count BoBo. I rarely sit on the terrace (sun burn being just of the risks) but I was early, had my camera and the Otter Bright was just right on such a glorious day.
