This afternoon my latest compact still camera arrived which continues the Canon marque this time the G7x , I've already got extra batteries and a two battery at a time charger although it only has a usb connection so not sure how useful it will be, there is a traditional charger though with the camera. I need a new neck strap as they have downsized the camera and now only has small strap holes. It took a while to get the feel for the new camera as it has all sorts of features I'll never use which is weird as people paying over £500 for a small camera probably don't need silly gimmicks. I haven't even opened the tripod/head boxes yet. I've got the exterior paint spec for St Oswald's decoration and need to see how they issue out enquiries and what form of contract they have, in my experience so far the answer is nothing.
Dave Vaughan's AEC lorry from Eastbourne features in CVC magazine this month, Dave and I grew up in the same council estate in Langney and although Dave was a little older we had a shared interest in buses etc. Dave is now heavily involved in Tinkers Park collection together with his son Adrian. Nice feature on the lorry which worked for Llewllyns a local contractor and house builder, it was the biggest lorry around our part of the world. I'm holding off booking for Worthing accommodation as there are more rooms starting to show at lower prices, I'll book tomorrow night. Light rain showers showing for Monday and Tuesday in Devon and Cornwall but again we need to be booking tomorrow. I'll try and get another few DVD trailers on our Youtube site tonight. I haven't managed to actually file any recent photos as yet, I'll try harder tomorrow. Meanwhile lets dip into the AEC world as we have talked about them
