Ray. I have been lazy of late and been using my small compact almost exclusively, as it is handy and at 20M pixels, produces good photos.

However, the last crop of fast boats has seen the Panasonic LUMIX bridge camera in action again, and what a treat. For a start the zoom is so much bigger, secondly it processes pictures much faster (although it displays the pic on the viewfinder for a few seconds, I discovered if you touch the shutter button it gets rid of this and takes another picture enabling rapid shooting, unlike the compact). I also like the weight, it’s not heavy as such, but much heavier than the compact, and this combined with the larger size gives much better handling.

But best of all...the pseudo eyepiece, with the massively added benefit of diopter correction, so I can actually see the snaps on the camera in focus! And it keeps out the sun.

I gave my Olympus OM20N and all my lenses to a charity shop. Not worth selling unfortunately. All that money I spent, a lovely camera, but I would never have used it again.

If you have had your over 65 flu jab they will soon be lining you up with one for Pneumonia and Shingles! Had my flu jab a few weeks ago no ill effects but think I got the blunt needle.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
