    Niall, you can see from the time scale how often i actually get on here now, apologies for the delay! Thanks for the reply anyway, London is a long way from home for me and there doesn't seem to be much call for my rural skills.. Cheers

    niallyan, just being nosey in response to your reply in thread asking about starts and bikers, hope you don't mind! How far up or down the country are you? Always found it a lot easier to hide a bike in melee down south, once you hit anywhere north ish then you suddenly become the only half with...

    HD Camcorders Time date stamp?

    Unsure if your camera has an external mic socket / plug? If so then any auxilliary jack plug fitted into it will usually mute the audio..

    You can see how often i get on here... In the fully employed category Carl, time's ticking mind, 4 yrs to go! The big question is what then?? I'm still struggling with my initial enquiry via Viz, he was unsure but mentioned you may be able to assist or at least point me in the right direction...

    Obs vans: plain or decals

    Vis have you seen the baby seats in the flesh ?? I'm sure there are different models kicking around but the ones i've seen and used are HUGE and i mean HUGE, they look as though they're designed for jabba the huts offspring... With your expertise and knowledge do you think they can they be...

    Obs vans: plain or decals

    TMAC offers good advice. Personally wouldn't go down the "signed" route with contact details unless firstly the details are genuine and secondly the details are supported by web or answer machines, iWithout going into details it'll come back to bite you if you dont. Other than highways and...

    Help with course .....

    Steve, as you've already said yourself you aren't going to learn a great deal in the space of a week starting from scratch in this field. You can however work on all the add ons which assist you or any prospective team / employer. I'm biased and do a fair bit of stills and video at work, whilst...

    Change in Police Driver Training for Level 1

    Regarding refresher courses, the instructors do appreciate the role and understand why we may lapse back into role related driving... Sort of agree, in my experience south of the border i've had some really appreciative instructors, more so on a bike than cars. In the one happy ship of...

    Shooting a moving object in low light.

    Peter, thanks for the reply. Fully appreciate where you're coming from and hopefully i don't come across as a "know it all". As i'll be paying for any future training myself i'm just trying to get the most i can from any course i participate in. Yes it's always nice to go over old ground and...

    Shooting a moving object in low light.

    It's always nice being told it can't be done, then coming back with a result ! Unfortunately i don't have your technical abilities so have to make do with the advice i'm given, not something i always agree with... Pete, how far beyond the "basics" does your course go? Only ask as i'm happy with...

    Shooting a moving object in low light.

    Just keep the questions simple, my knowledge is of the basics and from a practical perspective... You only have to look at some of the other posters on here, from both a techy side and operational, there's an awful lot of knowledge and experience that far surpasses mine. I usually just...

    Shooting a moving object in low light.

    Just keep at it, even in broad day light. Your ability to physically hand hold a camera without introducing camera shake will pay dividends, only comes through practice. If through practice you know that your technique is spot on then you're giving yourself a safety net sometimes equivalent to a...
