I guess it's this sheltered life of mine that I lead..... can you not just go to a site and click on an item to buy and have it shipped to you ? Maybe I can help in some way ? PM me if you have any ideas and we can discuss.

I know this thread is supposed to be about pictures of the SX, but please bear with me....

Will a quick release adapter plate affixed to the camera interfere with the battery and card door ? Must I remove the QR plate to get in there each time ? Is this a common problem ?

Thanks

PS: Nice shot Sly....

Last week-end, i walked to "le piton de la fournaise" one of the three most active volcano in the world, located in "la Réunion" french island in the Indian Ocean.

It was my first shooting with my new and allready amazing SX40 HS.

It was around 8h in the morning, and as you can see, here is a kind of blue light. Is it because of UVs?
