I personally favour the yellow variety of brick from the Llanddulas quarry in North Wales which has a softer consistency and mellower flavour than the heavier and more dense engineering type commonly found in damp course construction. London stocks are out of the question - I find the high level of pollutants in London air taint the flavour of the clay quite badly.

Alan,
nice RIB shot! Must admit I am a Canon nut myself and had checked out the rebel. Trouble is, with just buying the new boat I am broke for the next 5 years(or so my wife tells me!)
As for the brick "saga" sorry guys, but being a black country native, it has to be a Baggeridge brick.Just that right blend of clay mixed with scratchings and the mushy peas they spit in as a mould release agent.
And you know the worst thing about eating Pelican?
Getting the huge bill at the end!!!!
cheers Dal

May resort back to the Canon ,shooting transparency film and scanning the images I want to use.
Best wishes to your part of the world. My wifes from Newport and I spent many saturdays getting the hell kicked out of me on the Rugby fields of cardiff and the valleys.
cheers Dal .
P.s. not sure what they taste like;but they smell pretty bad!!!
Small world isn't it?

I have been a serious camera nut mfor many years - even got into medium and large format stuff - digi cameras will never get to the quality of slow transparency film - but for sheer ease of use.

My Canon gear hasn't been touched in the last year - the ease of not so much taking as VIEWING the images is amazing - and the quality of a good Epson printer is incredible when you decide to print out that special shot!

Got to be honest though - took over 3000 shots on holiday - as it doesn't cost anything you just zap away = quantity not quality but if you can force yourself to slow down you can get very good results.

Personally I wouldn't spend too much on a digi camera at the moment - the technology is changing too fast - the Lumix I have is not too expensive and gives great results.

A lot of people are lured by the megapixels - don't bother - the lens is the most important part - most people with high res (megapixel) cameras don't shoot onj high qulaity anyway to get more shots on the storage card and make the image easier to handle. My mate has an 8mp camera and never goes over 4mp so what is the point?

Codprawn,
completely agree with your comments. I use a Sony 3.1 Mp at the moment and do not really need any higher resolution.
What I really miss is the longer lenses ,as its only got x3 optical zoom before going into digital .
Also the delay between setting the focus and shooting is a couple of seconds; which doesnt sound much ;but is a pain when trying to catch a RIB getting air!
Alan ;saw the rebel digital today for about $900 with tax.Is there any noticeable delay when pressing the shutter ??
Was going to stick with my Canon T90 SLR and I put a roll of film through it this weekend when out cruising. Just killed me to wait 4 days for processing after getting spoilt by "instant"photos with the sony digital. Also got the photo CD with processing ;but the resolution is not that high which surprised me.
However was nice to be able to get a longer zoom to sneak up on one of my favorite "quaries" when ribbing; hope you like them
cheers Dal

what you need is a panasonic lumix like the one I have - it has a 12x optical zoom made by leica - equiv to a 35 - 420mm!!! It also has image stabilisation built in - camera is seriously good value.
