Well its that time of year again, the photography shops are full to the britches with sparkly new cameras with more pixels and wonder gadgetry than you can wave a stick at, I am looking for a new camera but dont want to have a wheelbarrow to carry it around, I have been looking closely at the Panasonic G3 amazed at the size and control this camera seems to have, yet i am concerned that the iso settings only goes down to 160iso,,,,that i feel is rather high as my little fuji and Big Nikon go down much lower around 80iso with the fuji and 100iso with the Nikon,,,I can hear you all saying OMG he's rambling again, BUT i would love to hear your opinions on the many cameras that are on the market at the moment.
Hmm. Then I shall not report you for terrorism, you homme fatale, you.
I must have that face Dezzie,,This is a true storey dezzie, I visited Germany once some years ago, i lived there for 3 months in Hamburg, a lovely place I really like Germany, anyway, one day i went out with a friend on a camera shoot, we hired a little boat and went around different docks taking pictures of ships etc etc ,,,we even took pictures of this large navy ship wth more guns than you could wave a stick at, we went back to the lodgings and finished our stay which was another week, i packed my backs and headed off to the airport, joined the waiting line of people for the aeroplane, when suddenly two of the BIGGEST men i ever did see carrying machine guns came over picked me off my feet and held me against the wall, i soon noticed that they were police, they took my camera which was film at that time and opened it and took the roll out my bags where also emptied of film, my friend who travelled with me stood with his mouth wide open in disbelieve,once they had done this they let me go,,Now i know you are saying no way thats never true but hand on heart its true, i later found out that we had ventured into a no go zone with our cameras and that this was the normal result for such a crime...I changed my boxers and traveled home...horrible experience...I still like Germany though, lovely clean country :O)
Did they bother to explain as they did it?
NO, just said,,In a German accent where is camera...i pointed at my carry all and that was that...
Wow! I'm not sure I should be talkin' to you! That's unbelievable. The world has gone quite mad.
Its true,,,really, taught me a real lesson dont point your camera where it dont belong unless you ask first,, :O)
Naturally, a photo of a ship is going to help The Spies build a Weapon to destroy The Ship. In all your Boy's Own fantasies. It's just a feeble excuse to flex some muscle.
Spose so, i was only 23 at the time, a shy reserved young man with little to say, it really frightened me,,was the machine guns that done it, British police don't carry guns on the street unless there is trouble, so i was not use to seeing them...I should have reported it really because after i was told that if the same thing had happened to a German visitor in England it would have been all over the papers,,it probably would have too :O)
It reminds me of when I went to the United States in 1981. We stopped over in Hawaii, and had to get off the plane while they serviced it. We were bussed to a terminal, and ushered inside. There was a big sign saying, "Aloha. Welcome to the United States of America." It was flanked by two men with rifles.
Yes a very welcoming sight for holiday makers, But, like i have said you live n learn and i would go back there again i hold no hard feelings at all as i know it was partly my own fault, but it would have been nice if someone had waved and said Entschuldigen Sie mich bitte nicht hier eingeben i would have had a wonderful 3 months in Germany then...
I seem to be surrounded by Germans here - mostly medical people. And I had a funny encounter with a Radiographer the other day. I had a good look at him and was trying to define his accent. His colouring and style just made me thing he was Romanian. When I asked him, he was gobsmacked. He said I was only the second person ever to guess correctly. He asked me if I had met him before. And when I got up to leave, he looked intensely at my face. He was convinced I must know him and couldn't have guessed. LOL
I think I have a knack of picking nationalities. I once guessed a woman was Israeli, and she was amazed. She said no-one ever got it right.
I think you are...Pomgolian.
