We are gathered here to hear Brother Williams speak to us of the wonders of Fujifilm. The border restrictions have eased and he is allowed out of the house  - and just as importantly - back in again. As owners of Siamese cats will attest, this is a vital function...

Let's make it clear, I'm not writing about people who have a sane and equable temper here - I mean people who can go across a darkened lounge room without falling over. People who can walk on the edge of precipices more than once. Not me. The Wanderlust shop in Hay Street mall has a wonderful selection of toys for these individuals. You've seen the Segway trolleys and scooting boots in a previous column and i cn attest that they really do work...

Bear with me. I have been shown a marvellous Canon camera that I cannot fully appreciate - I can only parrot what I've been told. I'm not a video shooter. Indeed the last movie I went to see had Danny Kaye in it and it cost 2/6d to get in. I could even afford a choc bomb without having to take out a loan from the bank. The chief selling feature of the new Canon EOS C 70 seems to be the use of the RF lens mount. These are the Canon lenses intended for their line of mirror-less still cameras ( themselves quite capable in the video line ) and have extremely good performance on the Canon sensors. The literature refers to the format as super 35, though there seem to be a number of choices that users can make about the size and shape of recording field. There is even one that makes a portrait-orientation shot intended for inclusion on smart devices. That's good thinking as so many people use social media sites to show their productions. Okay, the lit....

I'm always on the catch-up as far as the computer goes - I operate a Mac that doesn't have the latest operating system. And I've resisted the calls to upgrade as it would cancel out my printer and scanner. The result is I am always a little behind the clock with RAW file decoding. I can't boil down Fujifilm X-E4 files. Anything I shoot with it has to be jpeg...

On my Camera Electronic Day Out - my tour of the city shops - I was taken by the display of the electric vehicles in Wanderlust. My interest was stimulated by a recent social media post by a friend. He had been scootering on a footpath near his home and steered with more enthusiasm than balance. The photo that appeared on Facebook of him with casts on both broken wrists  was remarkable, to say the least. I hope that this is a rare occurrence amongst others, and for him, only the once. The thought of having an itchy nose with two arm casts is daunting. Now scooters are not the only electric vehicles going - I counted a bicycle, a two-wheeled Segway, and a pair of controllable electric roller-shoes. Thomas was game to test them out - he's good with the Segway and fair with the shoes. As yet he has no broken limbs, but I am writing this on Easter Sunday and there is always time before the column goes to press to change that...
