Hi all,

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

https://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]Movie mode:[/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.
