"Sorry", but I've got a bit of thing about street photography at the moment so here's another of my boring shots.

Just a simple candid street style shot taken at Canterbury of a gentleman with his Accordion doing a bit of street playing.

X-T2, 55-200mm Lens, 1/80th @ F 6.4, ISO-200, Handheld.

Very nice indeed! Tom Waits often gets the credit for saying that a gentleman is "a man who can play the accordion but doesn't" :). It's a very old joke though!
Thought that referred to bagpipes? Anyway, it's all a similar sound - air squeezed against its will out of a sac.

I've actually got a snap of a guy playing bagpipes Sir, believe it or not it was taken just minutes after my accordion player pic. "Watch This Space" :D:D

some really useful updates there. 15 minutes exposure in T mode could be particularly useful. shoot without card - not so much.

I'm really happy that added shoot without card, at the mo when I take one card out it won't let me shoot (I have the second set to backup) - I assume it will work with only one card now.
Even with the update, no matter how it's set you cannot shoot with only one card.

Somebody needs to give mine a good talking to then - it's letting me shoot with just one card in its card 1 slot.

Just upgraded to the latest version, all looks ok so far.
Naming of custom profiles and increased bracketing options is a good step forward
