    Is it worth spending over £1000 on a bed?

    Sounds like we made a very similar purchase allthough I'm not in mine all time I guess I'm lucky although mine wasn't quite that expensive at a little over 3k

    Greedy car Insurers

    Well I posted a couple of weeks back about expecting a letter soon well I didn’t get it, I got a phone call off my broker instead, with my renewal cost for the year, and my insurance has gone down by £30 and change this year so cannot complain, and it’s taken me all of 60 seconds to arrange...

    FedEx package delivered but not delivered!!!!

    Yes it is for Anything over £100 but use it directly on the website not through another payment service, interestingly the law has recently changed on S75 from when I worked for a CC Provider as now all international transactions over £100 are covered it used to be the case that only U.K. and EU...

    FedEx package delivered but not delivered!!!!

    S75 does not cover you if your using your credit card to put funds though a 3rd party payment service, as there’s been no breach of contract between the credit card and the payment service the breach has occurred between the payment service and the end party...

    Is it worth spending over £1000 on a bed?

    First attempt at astrophotography

    Cheers buddy @Cheffievrs looking at the photo there’s really not a lot wrong at all, I notice however that your using a 10-20 lens but at 20mm, if you’d shot at 10mm instead of 20mm you’d have first of all been able to open up your aperture that little more which does make a difference with...

    Do mobile speed cameras work at night

    Yeah but they need to be able to see who is breaking the law, the radar speed element of the van will work in day or night however the camera aspect needs to also be able to record the registration of the offender, I suspect this is where camera technology is not reaching a position where it can...

    Do mobile speed cameras work at night

    I’m sur I saw an article recently about a Force that had just upgraded their mobile vans so that they had the capability to also work at night, so that in mind I’d guess most do not work at night, but that is going to change in the coming years

    Car Tax Disk Failure

    That's where to police come in, and increasing number of police cars are fitted with ANPR systems, that flag up cars of interest, this includes but is not limited to un-tax, un-insured and un-MOTed, if a car is on the road without Tax or MoT then the cars insurance is not valid in any case so...

    Car Tax Disk Failure

    I really don’t get this, as others have said if it’s not SORNed and it’s not taxed issue a fine, any registered vehicle has to be one or the other...it should be nothing more than an algorithm on the database on the 10th working day of the month run a check any cars not complying issue a fine...

    Torch for orbs.

    Erm.....I’d have to go look to be certain, but it’s a lower end one in the range I want to say OM-D EM10 I purchased it on the classifieds used around this time last year as I wanted to try out the live composition tool on a recommendation from a friend who’s a brand ambassador for them and...

    Torch for orbs.

    OH stacking is certainly a tool that is worth keeping in the bag but sometimes there’s a certain satisfaction in creating an image in one take, it involves a real degree of planning and set up before the shutter is even pressed Of course for light painters in particular more and more are...

    Torch for orbs.

    Well yes but that is somewhat limiting if you wish to create a ultra long exposure light painted image, I will often create images that take 5-10 minutes to put in all the various elements, this means needing to be able to precisely control any light source used

    Torch for orbs.

    Yeah that’s the idea.. to create this look As to lights in a whisk, I’ve never tried that although I should imagine you’d get a look similar to an orb, the issue you’d face is turning the lights on and off while exposing

    Torch for orbs.

    Yeah to make dimes of light although the original concept came from @AndWhyNot on that front

    Torch for orbs.

    This is exactly what I did for a few years using battery pack sets of Christmas lights set up in various ways to use as a tool My advice if going down that route is create a cluster of 6-10 LEDs but fan then out a bit to create a head of light and also weigh the head down a little bit taping in...

    Torch for orbs.

    When you say an orb I take it you mean something like this? If so it's not really a torch that your after, I've made dozens of different tools in various different shapes, designs, configurations etc, spent a lot of money and never if I'm honest got a tool that works as I'd want Which is why I...

    Exposure times for star light sky ?

    Cheers buddy, for the OP a link to my guide is in my signature, as to settings it's pretty much been covered but if you are set on using film your going to have to expect and plan for long exposures don't be surprised is your using a 100-400 class of film to be working with 5 minute plus times...

    A fair cop

    I did a speed awareness course a few years back, my experience of it was that it was all rather basic even a little patronizing but it was worth it not to have the 3 points, ultimately you were in the wrong you accept it what more can you do, it was the same for myself I knew I was in the wrong...

    Credit card debt

    I used to work for a credit card company and I can tell you there are 3 types of customer.. 1) has a moderate balance, clearing it regularly so as to not to incure interest, is careful with their account to not run up more than they can afford.. 2) has a massive balance often on multimple...
