But, just as luck could have it ( ), I'm receiving a lottery ticket with some software I've ordered. Now it would be so funny if I were to win.Guess what I will buy if I do?
Ten dozen business class return flights so we can all come to visit?

I'm quite intrigued by all this and thought I would try plane spotting. It seems to be popular.

I've been looking out of the window for quite a while now and not seen one at all, nor is there much probability of seeing one. This is a rubbish hobby.

Whilst you've all been spotting planes the videos have all gone. So does that mean it was real or not

Re: New Top Specification OMD coming?

I think I must be the last person in the country to see the clip as I've just hunted around for a link that still works. What I liked was the menu system in the app. Touch the ISO setting that is displayed at the bottom of the screen and up pops a window to change the ISO setting (touch the ISO setting you want), touch the aperture setting displayed at the bottom screen and up pops a window to change the aperture (touch the one you want), touch the shutter speed displayed at the bottom of the screen... you get the idea. Why isn't it this easy on the touch screen on my E-M5 which also displays the settings along the bottom of the screen.

The dimensions are way off, so I wouldn't put too much faith in these specs & the latest leaks indicated it was 9 fps. Maybe the rest is correct.

It's even better, because you bring up the Super Control Panel by pressing the [OK] button & the [Info] key toggles the SCP that is touch selective (& adjusting the values by the control dials) with Live Control that isn't.

I do use the SCP, but the only bit you can use the touch screen for is to select which setting you want to modify and even then you have to hit the OK button to confirm the selection. You can not use the touch screen to select a value. The SCP should fill the screen, be a little more desriptive, and have a few more items in it like burst mode, bracketing, and myset recall.
