The really, really good thing about having kids is that, theoretically, you have an on demand model for testing new bits of kit. Of course, the reality is a little different.


Can they sand still outside for more than 90 seconds while I do a few tests, well, no they can’t.

Its cold, they’re tired, it’s late, there’s something on TV…….you get the drift. However, when they require a lift to a friend’s house at just the time you need to make sure  your lens, thats been caught in rain on the last three assignments, is working properly, a compromise can be reached.

The image of my son is exactly that, I made sure the lens was working and 3 mins later we were on the road to friend’s house. Happy days!
