Hi all,

This thread is a re-started version of this one:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=387881

This is the format we'd like to use. Copy and paste the following into your post and add a [ before each b, then enter in your details. If people think of any more camera specifications that'd be useful to put in this thread, I'll edit this list.

SPECIFICATIONS
b]Camera:[/b]
b]MP:[/b]
b]Weight:[/b]
b]Dimensions:[/b]
b]Lens (35mm eq.):[/b]
b]Card type:[/b]
b]Battery type:[/b]
b]Live video out w/o base/dock:[/b]
b]Movie mode:[/b]
b]Image stabilization:[/b]
b]Shutter activation:[/b]
b]IR port:[/b]

GENERAL INFORMATION
b]Cost:[/b]
b]Bought from:[/b]
b]Manufacturer's website:[/b]
b]Related threads:[/b]
b]Reviews:[/b]
b]Sample photos:[/b]


As camera technology is changing so quickly (cameras are almost being superseeded as soon as they come out!), a new thread will be started for each season - this one is for Summer 2005, as the thread title suggests.

Also the method triggering the shutter would be helpful.
