with a certain amount of trepidation

(viewed 1234 times)
I'm off for my first ever attempt at Proper Shaving..

[edit - that was actually OK. Good fun. Pleasant. A few nicks, but that's to be expected for my first time. I shall persevere and get better. Good shave too. Although now I do understand what aftershave is for. ]

Traditional Fireworks Night

Well, it's a tradition around here at least.

"Cockstrosity" isn't a word, but it should be.

you've been framed

(viewed 1151 times)
Got a load of free prints off

Eventually got around to framing them. I hate framing stuff, but I do like it when it's finally done.

The big black and white picture of Lemmy I took with my C905, and it printed up lovely at 18x12"

Sony Ericsson Satio - first impressions/mini review

(viewed 3289 times)
Pics are unedited apart from a little resizing. Bear in mind the light out today is dreadful.

Things I Like:

16:9 shooting mode (albeit at "only" 9Mpx). Best of all the aspect ratios.

"Touch capture" - set autofocus point and take shot by touching the screen (used in last shot to get nice dof)

Almost no shutter lag.

No more explicitly selecting macro mode - the AF just works all the way from infinity to up right close.

Things I'm Less Sure About:

Image editor onboard doesn't appear to have a "rotate" feature. [edit - found it now. it was under 'effects' ]

File navigation is rather clunky.

Being a Vodafone-branded firmware, almost none of the pre-installed software actually works. That's less of a handset issue than a software one.

Haven't, really, had much chance to play yet though.
