Fujifilm FinePix XP60 Review.... anyone?

Looking at the Fujifilm FinePix XP60 and only downside I can see so far is that its not great at night, which isn't great news as it would be my all round use camera, but thought I see what the paddling community thought.

It's a good job that he wasn't out paddling on a well known Pembrokshire tidal race instead.. innit.

I now give up. Don't give up. It really annoys me when I see people dropping litter, where ever it happens. I've approached mothers with their children in pushchairs saying "do you know care about the future for you children" and just got a mouth full back of rudeness, so I took that as a no. I’ve ...

Re: Contentious Issue - regarding rolling!

Interesting thread. As some of your may know, I cannot roll outside of the swimming pool. But while in the pool I have been known to coach newbies in the pool to roll. Its actually quite frustrating seeing people get better than you. I know the theory but me putting it into practice is another matter!
