Never been able to get super sharp images, no mater how hard i tried. Tripod, different settings, all sorts. Anyway, just traded them in and...

    Squeaky Sabre 45

    Hey all, earlier this year i finally succumbed to a Karrimor sf Sabre 45 (after my 35 was retired). However, after using it for a couple of months, it seems to have developed a squeak. It sounds like the F-Form mat is rubbing in the sleeve. After a while it becomes very distracting. Has anyone...

    Lovely video from CBC

    Just had this video pop up on a facebook thread. Its from CBC Indigenous new channel. Just a lovely old First Nations couple, cooking up a rabbit. They make what we strive to do look so easy and natural. I guess that comes from a lifetime of doing it for real.

    IR torch

    Hi folks. We recently bought one of the new bushnell equinox z2 night vision monocular. It's a really effective way to see in the dark and it streams directly to a phone or tablet in real time and also records. However, the one weak spot is the IR lamp built into it. It really sucks the juice...
