Uncle Dick's Workshop - Friday 8
Every Friday at 10:00AM - we will be bringing you the sort of cutting-edge expertise that leaves ragged bits and sore fingers - Uncle Dick's Workshop. The advice is free - free from good sense in most instances....It really cranks up around the first of April.
Q: This camera is only a week old and the lens won’t come out!
A: It is probably afraid that you will drop it into the sand at the beach yet again. You don’t want a camera – you want a hermit crab.
Q: I don’t think much of your advice!
A: A wise attitude. I think very little as I proffer it. Don’t be discouraged – thinking and photography are very much like oil and water. Which reminds me – make sure you check the oil and water in your camera before you take it on holiday.
Q: What is the ugliest digital camera available?
A: The iSore.
Q: How do they define a classic camera?
A: A classic camera is anything with leather wrapped around it. If the leather has dried out and peeled off it is a classic collector’s opportunity. If it still opens it is a treasure. If it smells like a bag of Balkan socks it is an artistic instrument. Don’t get me started on the glass.
Q: I want a digital camera that I can slip into my purse.A: And that, Madam, is precisely why we lock them away in a display cabinet.
