    FWIW, it's VERY natural, according to one enthusiastic tennis commentator, who showed us a replay of Rafa Nadal winning a wonderful point at the French Open in one of his early matches.

    What he wanted us to see was how stable Rafa's head remained during his complex movements. It was clearly so and truly amazing.

    No offense intended, of course, and probably of no redeeming social value, but I did think it was at least mildly interesting....

    The nice thing about little cameras (like the Dp1 I've just acquired) is that they are so small and light that you can think of the tripod as your camera outfit and the camera as...well, a lens cap or a snickers bar or something, it's so unobtrusive.

    With the DP1 a tripod is nice as well, as moving it fills in the time productively that you would otherwise have spent glaring at the little red light going flicker, flicker...

    The real trouble is that I simply lose the will to live if I have to carry a tripod around with me, and worse if I have to put the camera on it. It's like the old rule - take a ranging shot, then concentrate and get the good one, with me, it's always the ranging shot which is the good one.
    Mind you, if I DID use a tripod, I wouldn't mess with these little cameras, I'd be straight for MF with a digital back, If I've got to carry a bag full of stuff, why not a BIG bag!
    So, for me it's a personal thing, but I do remember someone saying to me that it wasn't worth taking landscape pictures at less than 1/500th second without a tripod . . .

    You're becoming worse than me, I haven't bought a new camera for ages and ages . . . well, I had a G1 for a couple of weeks when it came out, but it went fast and that was it.

    Doing splendidly thank you. Elizabeth has just celebrated her third birthday (how time flies). We got her a camera...fetchingly styled in bright pink, rubber coated for robustness; only a fixed focus lens but a binocular optical viewfinder!

    How's your lot doing? The apprentice sticking at it?

    My camera collection has got a bit out of hand - but I'm buying cheap these days so it doesn't matter too much. I've a box full of stuff to put up for sale but for some reason I find it so much easier to bid for stuff on ebay than offer it...

    Have you tried a Foveon camera yourself? Interesting technology. Much of the time it is difficult to see what the fuss is about but every now and again it does something special and you think "that's what they are going on about". The highlight recovery is very good actually. Makes a change from traditional cameras which tend to produce "dark" files or blown highlights. Sigma as a camera body manufacturer are a bit sad though. Way off the pace.

    I take it this hiatus in camera merrygoround means you've found something you like for longer than 38 secs in the A900?

    Olympus vs G1

    Wildlife beware Im gettin the 70-300 on my doorstep tomorrow Just imagine what this chipmunk would look like extra-large... The 70-300 would increase his diagonal length by 80 compared to the 18-180

    Itll take care to use the thing on the E-410 though, Im already getting a number of unsteady shots with the 18-180. Ill have to keep my shutter speed at 1/1000s at all costs. My next purchase may be the upcoming small Olympus camera with improved dynamic range, large viewfinder, weather sealing and naturally IS. Unfortunately, that means Ill have to keep my day job...

    You should consider a good tripod. ;-)
