Oh no! I'm recording the match and was trying to avoid hearing the score. I thought I was safe on this site........

Playing with an E3, planning shots.

Saw the firing and last penalty - it's all about timing!

Good to see that one of the teams on The Apprentice was using an Olympus camera for their advertising shots, looked like the E410. Made a nice change from the usual suspects!

Re: 1 - 1 half time... but Mr Sugar beckons...

The adverts that they made in the program made me cringe.

I did not watch, and will not watch the football.....I dont know who was playing or who won.

Re: 1 - 1 half time... but Mr Sugar beckons...

I Don't 'do' football AT ALL, but when we got in at 10:30 ish last night, my eldest watched the penelt shootout.

What tickled me the most was that after the match, there were a lot of photographers following the teams round catching the players celebrating, and due to the apalling weather a lot of them had to protect their cameras and lenses from the rain, with plastic bags etc!


AWWWWW BLESS

Sorry, Barrie,

Just couldn't resist a little self-indulgence. Not to be encouraged, I know, and I'll try not to do it again (too soon)!

I'm not a fan of either team John and am pleased you supported the team that one.
Years ago I supported Spurs and Watford but the onset of other hobbies has changed my direction. In other words I need my pennies to support my growing Olympus gear.

I bet you can buy an E520 for less than the price of a premiership season ticket - or maybe even an E3!
