which is best digital camera to buy for Home use

Your question is so wide open that any camera off any camera shops shelf will fill your needs -- -- -- unless you tell us more about what/where/when/why you take photos......

Its like me asking you what car should I buy?

wedding photography organisation
Yeah, I know the feeling. The one organised thing you should do though is to visit both the church and the reception venue in the days/weeks prior to the wedding to check out lighting/exposures, layout, best places for shots, a Plan B if its peeing down etc etc.............. and can you park the car, I had a wedding venue in a Church opposite Southend Football ground and it was their first match of the seaon and they were playing at home, I could not park anywhere, in the end I finished parking a whole train stop from the church and had to run with all my gear back to the church------- that was stressful...

Good Luck.

There is a saying "keep it simple stupid" not directed at you personally, its better to keep it simple on the day and do all organisation on the computer later. The more complicated you make the day shooting the more likely you will make a mistake. Concentrate on taking the best photos....

Had a Canon since 2003, printed hundreds of photo's and thousands of documents with not one problem. Obviously replaced inks many times and always used Canon inks.

Funny notice on websites.
A man and a woman were having a quiet, romantic dinner in a fine restaurant.

They were gazing lovingly at each other and holding hands.

The waitress, taking another order at a table a few steps away, suddenly noticed the man slowly
sliding down his chair and under the table, but the woman stared straight ahead.

The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table.

Still, the woman stared straight ahead.

The waitress, thinking this behaviour a bit risqué and that it might offend other diners, went over to the table and, tactfully, began by saying to the woman "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table."

The woman calmly looked up at her and said, "No, he didn't. He just walked in the door."

How do you deal with Junk (Postal) Mail

Quote: Putting it back into the postal system only creates a further burden on an already pressured system and will ultimately increase postal charges to everyone.

...not if everyone did it, they would soon get the message and stop doing the delivery.

How do you deal with Junk (Postal) Mail

Quote: There is an opt out option from royal mail , never got round to do it, and see how effective it is.

Have done that and its not made any difference. It means the Postie has to know who has opted out and who has not, so they wont do it, quote from my Postie.

How do you deal with Junk (Postal) Mail
I am curious to see how others deal with the mass amount of junk postal mail (not email) which is delivered by the Post Office. Normally I would just put it straight into the paper recycling box and leave it at that but this mail seems to be increasing in leaps and bounds and I want another way to be rid of it.

I asked my local postie not to put it through the letter box but he explained that he has to do this as it is a contract between the junk mail sender and the PO. I am getting leaflets with my normal post advertising everything from double glazing to invalid scooters to weekend breaks . I registered with the Mail Preference Service but apparently this does not stop the junk mail which is delivered by the Post Office. I have just returned from a few days away and there were 18 leaflets on the mat along with my true post.

So! I have now decided for every junk leaflet put through my door by the Postman I collect all them up once a week and post it back into the red letterbox, in other words I return it back to the Post Office. It may sound petty but there is no other way to send a message to these wasteful intruding mailers, unless you know different!

How do you handle it?

Quote: Hi Carol. People usually upload images in forum threads to illustrate something, or to start a discussion relating to the image subject matter.
Normal images just for viewing should be uploaded in the same way you uploaded your first image - ie to your pf and then to the galleries.

I thought that's what I said, so why was my posting removed. This PC lark is getting ridiculous........

I asked her what was the point of her uploading on a Forum without any comment, and if it was a mistake, she should upload from the photo's menu, what was wrong with that.

Tubes, paying 3 times for the strikers
If it had not been for Trade Unions the British worker might still b working a 48 hour week, no holidays and maybe sending children up chimneys. Unions did a great job in the past but the left wing element has ruined the reputation.

best and cheapest place for grey import
I can never understand why anyone would take the risk of buying 'grey imports' with all its hidden possibilities to save just a couple of quid. From my point of view I would sooner pay a bit extra and have the comfort factor of dealing with a reputable company and at least the potential of customer service.

You would get a decent Film SLR for £150. Use this, get the film developed and burnt to CD.

Newbie - Course advice

Quote: So my photography is limited.

Certainly not.

From my point of view I would not be too quick to grab a course. Get out and use your camera, see what you can do. Then when you do take on a course you will better understand what is being taught, to go in blind could be confusing and make learning more difficult than it is. Good luck.
