Isn’t this “Photos from the North East”, as opposed to “Photos from North Yorkshire” ? 

There was once a particularly stroppy bus driver round ours and years later I discovered wor lasses father* had been regularly 'climbing aboard' said stroppy driver's wife.   *He was divorce

This is the remains of the actual High Bridge, underneath Grey St.    The bridge is the large, triangular arch at the top, the smaller, circular arch is part of the sewer/culvert.

What camera are you using Jonny?

FujiFine Pix S5800 or something like that. Got it for quite cheap too, I know it's not the best but I don't need anything that good to start off with. Just wish I knew how to touch up photos and the rest of it at the moment but haven't had time to sort it out as they are a bit too dark. But thought it was a nice surprise seeing a whole family of them, and especially catching that one jumping up like that.

They look like really good cameras for the price. I don't really have too much with digital SLR's as I have only used analogue (Canon F1 old school) but I do fancy getting one at some point.

 

Is the lens interchangeable by the way?

 

The photos look really good as they are but for touching up you really can't go past Photoshop which is free from all good internets but quite expensive in the shops.

If I wanted a camera that has a good optical zoom (x10) and can take close up photos like that HF, what would you recommend? No more than £300

 

I'm not particularly in the know mate. I had a budget for a camcorder/camera and checked cnet to see what was in my range. Plumped for the HDR-SR10E...

15x optical zoom

 

For a novice like me with no clue on aperture settings and all that stuff it takes good snaps on auto.

There is a new version too, the TZ7 with 12x zoom but its a fair bit more expensive.

Thats what I'd been thinking about tbh

I'll put up some of the snaps that I've took with mine when I get chance.

 

Can you do close up stuff with it? What about this RAW file type that they all rave on about on NO?

 

TIA

It doesn't shoot in RAW. Close-ups aren't really my thing but its fine as long as the lighting is ok.

 

This one does, but its a much bigger camera: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicfz18/
