    We'll alter the plan slightly to make up for the lost time: if the Leica comes to the end of its list, we will send it to whoever is on next on the list to receive the Stylus at that time. All of my screw-ups aside, we can still bring home these cameras by the end of the year.

    Finally - my sincerest apologies to all patiently waiting on the second list!
    Hurrah !!!! Thanks for your efforts!


    When rotating the 2nd attached image, I see there is a also a "road book" with the Stylus ! Good idea.

    Cheers,

    C'mon! You make it sound like we're making this stuff up as we go along!

    Some might call it results-based management: Shawn sends a camera or two out into the world. What happens after that, he has no control over He hopes the long-term outcome will be two sets of pictures we can all enjoy! We all share his hopes

    Isn't that more like an elderly hygiene product?

    Ahhh, details... still funny.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Japan and Ireland, where the two cameras will soon land, I'm not worried about. It's those lesser known wilderness countries I worry about.

    Like Canada.

    We are all booked for the current round, but welcome aboard for Round 10! Of course, this is presuming ANYONE will still have an appetite to continue with this silliness.

    We had a shooter from New Zealand in one of the recent rounds, but they bowed out of this one. We'd love to have you in the next one. Stay tuned!
