  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Just think of the follow up market of selling a little square of black tape to those same people to cover up the red dot they've just bought so that they look more 'street'..

    Always good to upsell................in the case of this one, where is that next sucker. :LOL:

    On a more & very serious note ~ The tragic thing is in the 'real world' example that happened and had follow-on even once the scam was revealed were those fake IED detectors. I cannot recall exactly what his fate in court was but he should have been sent into 'theatre' with one of his own detectors and suffered the consequences of his crime!

    If/when I get a round tuit, I will be creating little red stickers with Likea (in an appropriate font). Oddly, it seems to be the baby X Fujis that people think are Leicas, although the X30 is missing the viewfinder window (single) so fewer people get confused.
