And, if it's in this thread, the photos with it must have you in using it; and if of it, someone else should be using it. And it shouldn't be pointed anywhere near the moon.

So where was I ?
Outside Arundel Photographica.

Although other photos from other people on the day show that you were in the Swanbourne Tearooms - I was too occupied learning about 10x8 at the time to take photos myself.

OK so i feel suitably guilty at being harsh.:rolleyes:
We'll let you tell us about it BUT only in piccies….Taken of it and with it!;)
Tested the F4 and used it for pics for this months comp plus next month's decay...seems to work ok so not much to talk about other than comparing it with other cameras.......for a few things.

I hope by that you mean you used the F4 to take a suitable photograph, and you don't mean it was your subject? ;)
[/QUOTE]

:) well the F4 could be the subject as in at least one thing it is of no use to me compared to a Canon T90 (and even a £8 camera I have off the bay)........h'mm this could start a Nikon\Canon war o_O:eek: :exit: :canon::nikon:

Preferably NOT on this thread!!!

<grump>(The trouble with long, off topic diversions is that the thread refreshes, so looks interesting FOR ITS TOPIC. At least with a thread about shooting moonshots of canon/Nikon, those of us who don't care can easily ignore the thread. Sorry, but I have found this diversion profoundly annoying. In retrospect, I should have clicked "report" way back, but this is F&C and it seemed unsporting.)</grump>

It's one of the downsides when a thread goes a bit 'quiet': After the initial impetus, regular postings cease (in this case, probably in favour of posting the sort of photo that would have appeared on this thread on F&C 'meet-up/holiday' type threads instead?). No mugshots appear, or appear very sporadically, then one particular and possibly somewhat off topic (in this case, possibly depending on your definition of nutters with cameras) post occurs, and for some reason people have the urge to reply.

Before you know it, the thread is off in a different direction. If you find this annoying then be prepared for a love-hate relationship with internet forums, as it happens on all of them. If some kind and benevolent force of administration (@Cobra @The Big Yin) were to take action and restore things by splitting this thread into two then I'm sure we'd all be very grateful. If not, then let it be, perhaps as a standing stone style monolith to nutters with cameras and their ramblings. ;)

As I had quite an input into the thread *** "going astray" , I guess that I owe an apology to Chris and anyone else whom it may have displeased.

*** How far astray from coming under the title of "nutters with cameras" the thread went is somewhat debateable......We all know that Brian is a complete fruitcake :exit::LOL: and I'm more nutty than a nut roast!
Maybe that places us in the thread perfectly, there again maybe not!:thinking:

No apologies necessary from anyone, I'm as guilty as the other contributors. Just laying down a mark that I'd personally prefer we kept a bit more on topic. Short diversions are fine, AFAICS but 80-odd OT posts, as someone mentioned, is way OTT IMHO!

And thereby hangs the tale; how do we know how far off route our 'short diversion' is going to take us... and as the many of us that hit a traffic jam before the days of sat-nav and decided to take a detour will probably testify, you're never lost with a full tank of fuel and a good map! :LOL:

Don't worry Chris I have reported you for being too considerate.

@Mr Badger gets ready to shoot someone against a wall with his Canon (EOS 30?) during the Apedale meet-up this year. Taken with my EOS 3, 28-135 on Delta 100.

I posted this elsewhere but thought it also fitted here Not sure if it qualifies me as a nutter with a camera or idiot with a camera !

O.K there is a bit of a story to this one ! whilst out with both a disposable ( for the disposable challenge) and my Cosmic 35 I stopped at a church on my way to to Hampton Loade railway station ,I realized that I had never tried the clock work timer on the camera and thought I'd have a go. I propped the camera up on a leaning grave stone and had a quick look through the view finder worked out what it was framing and pressed the button, As I thought it was pointing a little low I then decided that I would try my hardest to look a prat by crouching in the shot pressed the button and ran. As you can see the timer worked as did my plan to look like a prat !
