Wasted £20
Posted in Your Photos
Went to Ireland, mainly in County Kerry on a coach trip. whist their we were taken around the Ring of Kerry. I took a series of photos with the intention of stitching them in to a panorama. The last time I used Microsoft ICE it would not work, so I spent £20 on a piece of software called Photstitcer. I put all the photographs into the sticther "window" and only half of the images were used to create a panorama. For an unknown reason (to me) it will not down load to this site. I then remembered I had Microsoft ICE, so I then opened it and it asked me if I wanted to repair it, so I did. and success.

I have always said Sigma lenses were rubbish, which is why I only buy Pentax lenses.

Just been trying to register my stuff on the new Ricoh website. Came to register one of my lenses and cannot remove the filter listed in the title. For some reason it seems to be jammed solid on the lens. Any tips on how to removeit? Thanks.

Took the dog for a walk yesterday in a woode area which he enjoys. I took the opportunity to photograph the canopy. This is the first time i have viewed them off the camera, so please tell me what you think. Thanks
Steam train

Pedantic post. It is a steam locomotive. The locomotive and carriages are the train. Being more pedantic, it is a railway station, unless you speak US English, that ignorant version of British English.

Watched it as well this morning, but got fed up of watching it as he liked the sound of his own voice.:evil:

Trees (SATOBI?)
Posted in Your Photos
Well, thanks for the help (not). After watching a video on YouTube I found out that you have to take the photos in live view, press the right hand button to the right of the back screen, move across until you come across SATOBI. Again, thanks for the help.:evil:

Did you hold the menu button in and then switch the camera on? The update should then download to camera. One word of warnin though, you will need the battery to be fully charged!! MichaelYes I did that, Iíll try again and let you know.No, did not work, tried both SD cards, followed the correct procedure, removed the DCIM folder and no joy. I am not getting rid of the camera.
