I have enjoyed photography for a number of years, starting out with a general point
and shoot Ricoh Caplio G3 camera (2004), and then purchased an "Olympus C-70" 7 Mega
Pixel camera in around 2005, with an excellent Macro, along with a huge range of
manual settings including shutter speed, aperture control, and also unlimited video
recording ( @ 320 x 240 x 30 fps inc sound ) to the capacity of the memory card,
it produces excellent quality Shots. The battery life is also very good on average
I get around 100 Shots from the Li-on battery, you can store about 300-400 Photos
on a 512Mb xD memory Card, also with the feature of panoramic shots using Olympus’
own xD cards.
I purchased a gorilla pod which has come in handy for those times you need an extra
stable shot without having to carry around a full sized tripod.
I also own a Sony TRV-14E DV camcorder, which I use most often at Oulton Park race
circuit, which I enjoy going to in the summer months.
