Just sent a follow-up PM to Ralph, and asked him to please chime in and let us know his progress with 8.1 (Nikon). I know he has been recovering from an ailment, but it's been a month now since he told me he was preparing to take the last shot. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
Finally it arrived in the mystic dimension known as the Highlands:D...............and then it never stopped raining but I did take my shot on a trip to the (sunnier) Lake District yippeeee! Mission accomplished!
The camera still managed to get snagged by the Highland spacetimewarp even after it arrived-not the first time I've had things get buried under a pile of other people's !"£$%%^% after they arrive here.........whoever's next on the list, please PM me with your address and it'll be on it's way out of here (cue X files theme)
Hooray.... we're winning... I mean our camera hasn't got lost!
Time to release the hounds (or sic the dogs, whatever you prefer) on Mr. Javins?
Ralph - please - if you are listening - give us an update on the camera (8.1 / Nikon).
