Does that show as 007/050 on the watch back?

It's marked 07/50

What cameras are you missing?

When my father passed away, I inherited 2 camera bags of Olympus SLR's from around that era, along with lenses, flashguns, filters etc

I may be able to help fill a gap!

Re: What are you drinking right now....?

Had a bottle of Wild Bill's IPA this evening. Decently full bodied, slightly sweet but nice and hoppy, 5%ABV. One of Aldi's own label beers, by all account brewed by Marstons (will have to compare it with a bottle of Pedigree). Only £1.19 for a 500ml bottle. :shock: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com...

I think that is actually the name for the new (not so) smart watch that is being launched on April 1st

504 being the grade of stainless steel that is impervious to constructive criticism
