    To me that sounds very optimistic.

    Good to see Shawn is chicken on the cameras.
    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.

    Hi Ruediger, Hi all,

    A funny thing would be publishing a speed indicator for each camera, in kilometer /day (km/h would be rather optimistic ), and in miles per day (or in Furlongs by Victorian Day, or wathever strange Imperial system unit you'd like..), both for the whole travel from start, and for the last current step.


    So, if i am right, counting town-to-town with google maps, for now the Stylus traveled approx 6860 km (with the hypothesis that Shawn posted it from NYC), posted the 03/25/2013 (54 days ago), so overall speed is 127 km/day. The last stage (til the Mr Kraker's home) was traveled at 77 km/day.

    Same thing for the Leica can't be made right now, without enough precise localization data. I.e if I consider the Manitoba to Manitoba step, it counts for 0 km, and I believe it's a little larger than that

    Cheers,

    Raphael

    Ahah ! I was searching about a proper time unit, and just tumbled on this page , about the
    Furlong/Firkin/Fortnight system :

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FFF_system

    So, the Fortnight seems to be the ideal time unit, and so, a speed should be in furlongs/fortnight...

    Back to topic...

    Even better about lenght unit, so I am back to the prefered topic in this thread :

    From : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...rement#Sheppey

    "Sheppey

    A measure of distance equal to about 7⁄8 of a mile (1.4 km), defined as the closest distance at which sheep remain picturesque. The Sheppey is the creation of Douglas Adams and John Lloyd, included in The Meaning of Liff, their dictionary of putative meanings for words that are actually just place names. It is named after the Isle of Sheppey in the UK."

    Fred prefers to keep his sheep within .5 microsheppy at all times- in other words, grabbin' distance.

    Pedro - welcome!

    As you can see or probably guess, this is quite difficult to coordinate and manage effectively. Thus, we aim to go one round at a time. We currently have two cameras running for this round, but we are all booked.

    But we will be pleased to include you in the next round. Also, just in case someone drops out (always a possibility), we will send you a PM to get you in on this round. Please stay tuned and feel free to comment at any time.

    Regards,

    Shawn
