    Hi all,I might be planning a visit around mid to late next week (7th-12th Feb).Will there be anyone around ?I've just bought a new digital camera and need something to point it at.The next Gyro News deadline is the 15th Feb for articles and photos,and the cover is still up for grabs....Yes I'm dangling a carrot.cheersArtArt SpinkGyroNews Editor

    Hi Art, the Lamaroo weekend should create some photo opportunities and Sam the photo purloiner is flying there and will undoubtedly have plenty for publication. I am planning to go and will take a few pics myself and could scribe a few words if you need them.What camera did you buy?Pete

          Good one Art. I have had a fuji S7000 (6/12 megapixel)for two or three years since their release and it is one great camera. My advice is get to know the camera and all the buttons well and use some of the manual features. It takes a great shot in the sky if you manually freeze the speed on 1/1000 and manually set the focus to infinity then let the auto exposure have its head.Pete
