Thanks Chris but I think the 300 quid is for the body only. Then you need a lens. Still worth looking at as I'm really at the beginning of my search. When....When the roads are clear I'll get into Manchester city center and do some serious window shopping.

The EOS 1000D is on my list and if I can get a decent lens for a 100 quid then it's very much in the frame.....You could see that pun coming from a very long way away couldn't you.....PMSL :oops: :oops: :oops:

As much as that! I have a superb Nikon F50 with a MicroNikkor lens (will focus to a cm in incredible detail) but being a FILM camera it also seems to have a secondhand value around Box Brownie level

Being a film camera I have not used it for ages - and probably never will

Will it depend on a photo finish, or a flash decision?

I'll expose myself and focus in on any body who is prepared to pose a suggestion that will help me in my quest for a bargain. When I've decided I'll zoom down to the camera shop and hope they are still open and the shutter has not been drawn down. I hope that with a new camera I can develop my skills and put a stop to badly composed pictures

I braved the weather this morning and went for a gentle and very careful stroll. I have decided that I need to keep myself active and have got myself a few hours work a week by volunteering my services to my local church. This morning’s dry run was too make sure I could get there tomorrow for my first shift and to see how long it would take to get there.

My new office.......and even in these conditions 10 minutes away

I know it’s a hard life but someone has to do it :lol:

Looking on the bright side if I have another stroke and I’m not so lucky I’m working in the right place :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thank you And and Wicked Woman,

My first day was a wonderful experience. It’s not often nowadays that I go to places where EVERYONE is younger than me :oops:

The church yard was under a foot of snow so my first day was spent clearing a path from the Lychgate to the main door of the church.
The temptation to ask why The Boss was able to clear a pathway through The Red Sea but not in the church yard was overwhelming but I didn’t want to push it on my first day :lol:

I just know that something bad is going to happen today for having such irreverent thoughts :oops: :oops:
