It’s still raining but is a little brighter I had a bit of a shock this morning, was wandering along in a dream and all of a sudden Alf was snarling and growling and there was a hell of a screeching. I turned round and Moll had caught a rat and Alf wanted it. Moll put it down whilst she remonstrated with Alf and it tried to escape but wasn’t very well so I had to stamp on it. Bloody dogs, worse still in all the excitement I forgot to take a picture.
It wasn’t very nice out so I popped these through Photomatix.
I have been looking a little more into the Fuji GX680 cameras and have noticed that the MKs I and II are about half the price of the MK III. The only real difference is the power supply but for a couple of hundred pounds saving and half a day with a soldering iron I can’t see there is too much of a problem. It would cost something like £50.00p to make a battery pack up with Nickel Metal Hydride batteries like the Eneloop ones, I bet Maplin do an equivalent and probably a charger to go with them.
I have to go and get some food in, it’s not far, you can see the town in the middle picture. I’ll investigate the camera later. The other problem is that most of these have been used as studio cameras so wide lenses like a 50mm or even 75mm at a pinch are at a premium. It will give me something to do later on.
