  1. yup been at it since around 2006 dont do much at the moment unfortunately as too busy with other projects.
  2. yup the s210 will go up to iso 2000, and if its good enough for your needs that's all that matters
  3. Is it the S210 coolpix ? as this has a 8mp sensor and an iso range up to 2000 (although photos taken at this iso will probably be grainy as hell) . iso 2000 isn't that high for a half decent modern digital my 7d came out in 2009 and will go up to iso12800 and the mark 2 (released in 2014) will go up to iso51200. if you really want to push it the 1dx mk3 will go as high as iso819,200 in H3 custom function but will cost you about £6500 without any lenses.
  4. A tenners worth ?! just how bad a shot are you ?

    yep I've listened to both Xhosa and Zulu in South Africa (both have click consonants) as some friends I've stayed with there are fluent in both.
  6. They stopped all flights to and from China is what I think made a big difference where we were still letting flights in and out of countries like China and Italy, when I was there in Feb the popular tourist destinations were pretty quiet but only because the majority of their tourists are Chinese and they had been stopped. There was no social distancing going on, bars and restaurants were fully open and relatively busy (once again trade was down and quieter but that was down to the lack of chinese).
  7. Vietnam locked down travel to and from China early that's true and we should have done the same, but otherwise their lockdown wasnt particularly tight early on as I was there throughout February and businesses, bars clubs etc were all open there was little checking that i saw at the border, we were offered masks but most didnt wear them.
  8. See what I mean, cloud cuckoo land
  9. Alas the ability to read and comprehend what others have written is not a strong point for some. I do try not to bother nowadays as really theres just no getting past those massive blinders but sometimes I can't resist the temptation to try. must be useful at times to be able to blissfully ignore what is going on in the surrounding world and live in ones own little fairy story.
  10. No that's what is in withdrawal agreement act ratified by parliament on Jan 29th this year and the EU on the 30th of Jan A no deal brexit is still the default position should no trade agreement be reached by Dec 31 2020 and no extension is agreed (which has to be done by July 1st).
  11. Well unless both us and the EU agree to extend the transition period by the July 1st we're out agreement or not in which case WTO rules kick in
  12. Brexit has happened, we're out, we just dealing with the trade negotiations in the transition period now.
  13. which particular sh1t? theres been a lot apparently going to hit the fan for years according to some
  14. I think the same incident gets a mention on the bbc website, no names mentioned though https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-52003543
  15. time and technology moves on, I did find it an interesting read though as most wouldnt realise technical aspects behind something that appears at first glance to be so simple a design
