    Thanks Alan

    When I was seeking a digital camera, I had 3 in the camera shop to play with over the hour or so that I was there. I selected the Fuji as it 'felt right in my fingers' even though all 3 cameras had the same basic specs. Funnily enough, it also came with a screw-on-to-the-body tube to allow filters to be used plus it was a useful lens hood arrangement.

    The Fuji did 96,000 images during its life and finally the on-off switch started to misbehave - so ..... Years later after the fuji had gone-to-god I bought a Canon over the internet and hated it from the beginning. Its main settings dial on the rear panel was a rotary device - press-in at top/bottom/left/right for the usual things, but you needed to rotate it to alter the numbers being displayed. If I accidentally pressed while rotating, off it went into a different menu and it was lots of finger-pokin' to get back to where I wanted to be. I sold it at 1/2-price within 2-3 months of buying it ... and went to the Panny cameras

    Lots of great images Phil. You certainly did a lot better with that Fuji S-5000 than I did with my first digital camera - a Canon 4MP point and shoot in 2003. I just found it frustrating after a while, although I got a few decent shots. When I got my first DSLR at the end of 2006, I found it much more satisfying.

    G'day mate

    "keep 'em comin" ..... year for a week or two maybe > it all stems from a) lockdown-itis (but that excuse is no longer so valid but the emotional dross is still there) + b) all my PC rebuild issues that you are aware of allowing me to rediscover all these beaut pics from years ago

    As a postscript to the above series of images - perhaps you can also see the enjoyment that I was having with a camera whose lens offered me such beaut possibilities. While we today (15-or so yrs later with better in-camera software) have many ways of reducing noise &/or modifying the JPG image in-camera, these images, for me, bring back some of the excitement I felt following my switch to a digital, superzoom camera

    Good shots taken in WA Phil. I've walked the bridges in Boddington and the weir. If that's Tullis bridge, it was destroyed by fire by a group of campers who were their over the Easter long weekend. in April 2009. They set a campfire on the truss on the top of the bridge, apparently went to bed thinking the fire would be ok.....woke up in the night with the bridge on fire. Some more useless info: We used to live in Yokine (suburb in Perth) in a five bedroom house and after my dad died, mum sold the house to a doctor who had a farm in Boddington. He cut the house into four and jinkered it to his farm and rebuilt it. His son who had "issues" destroyed it just a few years ago so his sister couldn't sell it. Again, thanks for the memories.
