Belated greetings .

My apologies, it's been pointed out to me that I should really let people know who I am so here goes. Yes, that really is my name before anyone asks (only those of a certain age will get the connection but everyone used to make comments like Bernie the bolt etc at one point). I don't class myself as a photographer as such, more of a taker of pictures, mainly consisting of my Grandchildren these days and since the cameras got a little better on my mobile I've tended to get lazy and not taken the slr out much.
I first started with an slr many years ago with a Zenith 11, clunky and very old fashioned but I enjoyed using it and took quite a few decent photos with it. This was followed by a major upgrade to an Olympus Om2n, well two of them actually with various lenses, 18mm,24mm, 50mm 35-70mm, 135mm and a 250mm (I think). Once the digital cameras started coming out I spent £350 on a 3mp digital with zoom. 3mp?. So now I have Canon 600 which I rarely use but I have decided to rectify that which is why I'm looking for the replacement part for the lens. Mainly I tune classic Lambrettas, making my own barrels, heads, expansion chambers etc. - the reason why I don't have the time to go on forums. Not to mention the four Grandchildren we have regularly.

By the way, I miss the Olympus, the shutter action really was sublime, something that's missing from the digital slr. I know you can mimic the shutter sound but the feel of the action isn't there.
 
Hahahahahahahahaha. I should have said Modmoderator. The SX150 is one of my favourite models, the ultimate favourite being the GP200 of which we have two, one a 1971 Electronic. I rarely have time to ride them though as I'm always too busy doing engines, I'm also building a Lambretta streamliner, it's on YouTube although I don't know how to post the link on here being a bit dense where the tinternet is concerned. Look up Bob Monkhouse, Lambretta streamliner on YouTube. You'll be needing really fast shutter speeds to get a decent photo when it's up and running.


Now I've managed to work out how to do that the world is my hamster.

I had loads of chrome and 17 mirrors, one night I was stopped by the police and told to take the glass out of 15 of them as it was blinding the cars behind me, so I removed the glass and painted Union Jacks inside them.
In the one year I had it I changed the colour many times using my moms vacuum cleaner spray gun attachment.

Welcome to the forum Bob, remember your namesake well but never had one of those little things. Recovered quite a lot of them though.

Vacuum cleaner spray gun, now that's a long time ago, I haven't heard one of those mentioned in many years.
