Hi Jane....welcome to EPZ...... you say you have mobility problems, can I ask are you in a chair...I only ask as my sister is and so I could possible pass on some tips for equipment etc...
...just ask anything you would like to know , you will find a very friendly bunch on here that will be more than happy to pass on their knowledge..
Hi Jane welcome aboard I went on a adult learning photography course at my local nightschool and they had disabled pupils 2 were in wheelchairs and had adapted tripods. I know of a site dedicated to disabled photographers if you want more info you could email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Jane, welcome to EPZ. Glad to see you've settled in.
Having arthritis I can't bend , or kneel to get the better photo. I've just tried to work within my means.

Have you seen an angle finder ? It attaches to an eyepiece and may allow you to get a lower perspective. How much, will depend upon you range of movement.
Canon Angle Finder - other makes and cheaper ones are available
My sis , who is quadraplegic, uses a MAGIC ARM with the SUPER CLAP this attaches to her chair arm with the arm positioned across her and the camera on the shoe........
She has a Fuji S5000 which is very easy for her to turn on and off (as her hands are in gloves)...we took a long time choosing it for its ease of use and has enabled her to continue with her hobby...
I also had a shutter release cable made to fit the camera as it didn't have that facility...she uses her camera all the time taking pics of the kids sports days etc .....
Found this site looks like a very good one for disabled photographers well worth looking at
I see they have a stand at Focus too.
thanks for all your kind advise.i will give them all a go.as for my disability,i dont use a chair but i cant stand for long periods of time and i cant bend well,but i think people with disabilities just find a way for most problems dont they.
